What " basic right" needs a competency requirement?
If you guys want the federal government to grant nationwide reciprocity, expect competency requirements. Expect them to be pretty expensive and difficult as well.
Like it or not, there is no "right to carry" in the eyes of the government. It's a restricted privilege until the courts say otherwise. I know folks are thinking "it's mah riiiight! It ain't up to the courts!"
But it is
up to the courts. That's not how it's supposed to be, but that's where we are right now.
