Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says Senators Bunning and McConnell voted to allow reciprocity among states for concealed weapons permits, but measure failed.

The 58-39 roll call by which the Senate on Wednesday rejected a measure allowing a person with a concealed weapon permit in one state to also hide his firearm when visiting another state.   Both Senators from Kentucky voted to in favor of an amendment establishing concealed carry permit reciprocity in the 48 states that allow the carrying of concealed weapons.  Sixty votes were needed to approve the measure.

I don’t know about you, but I am confused how this proposed measure squares with the Fight Against Terrorism and Homeland Security in this country.  Seems to me that allowing persons to carry concealed weapons while traveling across state lines is not a Second Amendment Right protected by the U.S. Constitution, but I may be taking a conservative view on this failed measure.
