The depth of the checking SC does, and some other states, exempts purchasers with a permit to need subsequent checks as long as that permit is valid which is great for me, it's like the express checkout lane. It's assumed that since I passed the check, and haven't done anything to lose it, that I'm fine.
I would like to see a national standard set for nationwide concealed carry in all 50 states and DC as well as be exempt from other types of checks where applicable. Let me VOLUNTARILY committ myself if I chose but I should also reap the rewards. I can opt out at any time ut my nationwide super permit is voided. But what this can do is show how many highly resonsible gun owners there are in this country. This would also help to reduce crime or at the very least you will have some hard data to measure.
Your proposing a new federal program?
A permitting program run by the ATF, of course I'd pay out of pocket for the license like I do now for my drivers license, CWP, etc. Or make it a new level of the Federal Firearm License that already exists.
