Has anyone ever used article 4 section 1 of the constitution to get another state to recognize other states carry permits?

Article IV section 1 - Each State to Honor all others

Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.

There has been several attempts to get a national reciprocity bill passed and each has failed. The biggest problem to overcome is the vast differences in concealed carry laws and how permits are issued. Some states issue permits with no training requirement or back ground check requirement. Some issue with only a background check requirement. There are two states that don't allow concealed carry at all. You can go to Alaska, Vermont and now Arizona and not need a permit. There would have to be some form of uniformity (at least to the extent of drivers licenses) to get such a law working.

The way I read that section there is no need for uniformity it says that each state must honor other states rulings and judgments
 
The thing about the "full faith and credit" clause is that it applies mainly to judicial proceedings and findings. It doesn't really apply to permits and licenses. This is why each state can regulate attorney's licenses, contractor's licenses, etc. The following may better explain the clause:

The sooner we educate our legislators on the following, the sooner we can stop muddying up the waters with superfluous & disparate CCW laws...

"The Second Amendment IS my Concealed Carry Permit" - Ted Nugent

The First Fundamental Principle of Constitutional Interpretation: Your Rights Don't Come From Government
Oath Keepers: CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC 101: YOUR RIGHTS DON’T COME FROM GOVERNMENT

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." - Second Amendment

Nowhere does it state SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED Except...
IF your zip code is x, your standing at y or the type or class of weapon you desire to keep or bear is z...
OR if said weapon is carried openly or concealed...

Actually, since permits are treated as privileges by all the issuing states, why not use Section 2, the privileges and immunities clause? Same problem with differing state laws.

BUT--The biggest reason NOT to push universal reciprocity is that it would be a Federal law. Once the Feds get involved, they'll inevitably get involved in qualifications, terms and all other aspects of the carry laws. Keep the Feds out of my holster! Do you want a Pelosi or Schumer telling you what qualifying courses, what firearms qualify, what "cartridge-stamping" requirements your firearm must have, where to go to register {permanently} your firearm and whatever else they can come up with? NOT ME!

If there was a way to make it universal without the federal government making impositions and more laws...

Yea, maybe if every state would agree on exactly the same gun laws. I'm not going to hold my breath for that one.

I think there are 3 lawsuits pending regarding the "good cause" part of several "may issue" states ccw statutes. One in MD, one in NYS, and the other in San Diego. I think the San Diego suit is also challenging the residency requirements for obtaining a permit. (Maybe somebody on here can help me with this info?) If they could find that being required to be a resident in order to obtain a permit is unconstitutional, and also find the same for the "good cause" issue, I think that would be a step in the right direction for some type of national coverage.

Maybe I am way off on this? It wouldn’t be the first time. Any info or opinions would be great.

When use the 2A to protect our selves as Ted Nugent has stated. I tell people that I am militia of one and I am well organized. This is using the U.S. Army's campaign to cover things. I am a Army of One.

That should cover every thing.
