Which state would have been the first in Concealed Carry Licenses?

Congress recently turned down a chance to require all states to honor concealed-carry permits from other states -- effectively overriding all local gun laws. The defeat turned back, at least for the moment, a chance for the states with the weakest gun laws to make a killing by bringing more gun buyers and potential permit holders to their states. Those states that are popular with the $3 billion-plus gun industry now, like Florida and Virginia, have a chance to become real winners if the rule ever goes through.

A whisper campaign already makes Southern states extremely popular with gun dealers: most handguns used in crime in Northern cities were purchased down South.
