Senate Vote

On Wednesday, July 22nd, the United States Senate voted on Senate Amendment 1618 and 1390 (National Defense Authorization Act) to allow citizens who have concealed carry permits from the State in which they reside to carry concealed firearms in another state that grants concealed carry permits, if the individual complies with the law of the State.
The Amendment was defeated by two votes.
Minnesota Senators Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar voted against the Amendment.
The Washington DC offices of both Senators were immediately contacted asking why they voted as they did. As of this posting date and time, neither office has replied.
