Living in CT, which tends to be a very anti-2A state in its policies, and everyone blaming everyone when it takes more than 8 weeks to get a permit, and then to file an appeal takes 2years in some cases, it is near impossible to get a permit alone. After getting a permit for CT, I can only use the CT permit in CT, and to carry to MA or NY, I could apply for a temporary permit or notify state police of my travel plans. However, after I go through all that work, do I really want to be getting additional permits and take additional steps? Not really. Any state permit should be recognized for travel through any state.
