What " basic right" needs a competency requirement?

I know "concealed" is not a right just the bear part, but in some states OC is not allowed.

Currently Pennsylvania doesn't require competency tests for licensing. PA is very close to "shall issue" the other states requiring some type of training/instruction...not so much. And what about states that don't issue CCW's (VT, IL) or are "may issue?"

BTW, all of the above stipulations are good things to know. I just am questioning the "competent" requirements and who are setting those rules.
