House votes to expand concealed gun law – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs Now that I have your attention, I'm not 100% sure it would be unconstitutional, but my first impression is that this would violate the state's rights to regulate licensing on its own.

But I think that it's over stepping for the federal government onto the states.
