On Wednesday, the Senate voted to reject an amendment offered by Sen. John Thune which would allow concealed carry permits to be recognized across state lines, much like a driver’s license. The amendment required a three-fifths majority, or 60 votes, to pass, but only received 58 votes (20 Democrats voted with Thune). Thirty-four senators voted against the measure, including Republican Senators Rick Lugar (Ind.) and George Voinavich (Ohio); three did not vote at all.
The roll call vote is below; read more about the amendment here.
