I read it quickly. If it makes the CWP codes consistent and applicable in all the states then I think it's great. If one likes to travel CCW through other states it takes different steps for different states which essentially makes it a PITA.
Ore., for example will only honor a CWP from states that border it. If your from Michigan for example forget carrying there.

I believe that keeping things simple and consistent is usually the way to go, but heck what do I know.

It's a no-brainer that should have happened a long time ago, IMO. It's absolutely ridiculous and unaccpetable that you can be a perfectly law-abiding citizen, and cross a state border and suddenly become an armed felon.

I'm still amazed at how easy it is to get a CPL in WA despite the fact that our state govt is traditionally fairly liberal/democratic. Sometimes you just don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

From Clatsop County's website

Quote:
Effective FEBRUARY 1, 2004, we will accept Concealed Handgun License applications from Washington residents residing in the following counties ONLY:

Pacific
Grays Harbor
Wahkiakum
At this time we will continue with renewals for all Washington Concealed Handgun License holders. This is subject to change at a later date.
From here

Clatsop County Oregon - Concealed Weapons Permits

And here's a good guide to reciprocity laws for all states

http://www.sirwaltergunclub.com/data/recguide.pdf

Apparently Oregon does not recognise a CCW from any other state.

It finally would make sense that any permit issued in your state would be honored by any state/territory- like a driver's license.

Now, if they can only work on that Class 3 permit for all states.....
