Police chiefs implore Congress not to pass concealed-carry reciprocity gun law

The nation’s police chiefs are rising up against another conservative crime-fighting initiative, sending a letter to leaders of Congress on Thursday opposing a bill that would allow gun owners with concealed-carry permits in one state to carry their concealed weapons in all 50 states.

The letter from the International Association of Chiefs of Police, representing 18,000 police departments across the United States, and Boston Police Commissioner William Evans targets the “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act,” which passed the House in December and is now assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

US Constitution - Regarding the Full Faith and Credit provision,"Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof."

When Congress, however, fails to so act, it doesn't mean (if the Constitution means what it says) that the Full Faith and Credit provision doesn't then apply.

So, why haven't the Courts ruled that a CCP issued by one State is automatically good in every other State of the Union?

Aren't our Rights, Immunities, and Privileges preserved and protected by the Constitution, and isn't such a permit a Privilege?

xqqme,

The Supreme Court has recognized a "public policy exception" to the Full Faith and Credit Clause. In 1939, the Court in Pacific Employers Insurance v. Industrial Accident wrote (in part):

[T]here are some limitations upon the extent to which a state may be required by the full faith and credit clause to enforce even the judgment of another state in contravention of its own statutes or policy. ... And in the case of statutes...the full faith and credit clause does not require one state to substitute for its own statute, applicable to persons and events within it, the conflicting statute of another state...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams
