Sen. John Thune sponsored an amendment to the defense authorization bill allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry their weapons across state lines as long as they abided by other states’ CCW rules and regulations.
The Senate just voted down the measure by 58-39, falling two short of the 60-vote threshhold needed to block a filibuster.
Several Democrats voted for the amendment, including Sens. Feingold, Dorgan, Bayh, and Webb.
Sen. Pryor switched his vote from “nay” to “aye” at the last minute.
GOP Sens. Lugar and Voinovich voted “nay.”blog comments powered by Disqus
