And if I have a carry license/permit from my home state and I happen to find myself in one of the other states, am I not by definition engaging in interstate commerce?
Besides, there's that pesky Constitution thing:
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.
Is not issuing a license or permit -- to do anything -- an act?
