Full Faith and Credit and Handgun Laws

A question was raised in class about why the full faith and credit clause applies to marriage licenses and other public records and laws, but not - currently anyway - to gun laws, especially concealed and open carry rules. I really don't know as of yet, but here are a few readings that might help us figure this out.

- Jurist: Survey of State Open and Concealed Carry Laws.
- Gun Debate: Concealed Carry Reciprocity and the Constitution.
- Volokh Conspiracy: Full Faith and Credit, Pardons, and Gun Rights.
- The Fiscal Times: A New Gun Law Pits Virginia Against the Constitution.
