This amendment would have mandated that all states who issue a license for or otherwise allow their own residents to carry a concealed firearm for personal protection to recognize the concealed carry permits of nonresidents.

Failure of the Thune-Vitter Amendment is just another failure by members of the Democratic Party to recognize the needs of the American People to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their fellow citizens.

The same ones who voted NAY are the same worthless mental midget career Democratic politicians who are pushing all the other self interest programs and Bills that have failed. Just as they have failed us.
