Senate Shoots Down Concealed Carry Amendment

The Senate rejected Thune’s amendment to recognize concealed carry permits across state lines. See how they voted…

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.
