Senate Rejects Concealed Weapons Measure

Senators voted for the measure, approved  58-39, cheap but it fell short of the

required 60 votes for passage in an unusual setback for the gun rights

side, which has been able to muster majorities of Republicans and

pro-gun Democrats to move its agenda through both the Bush and Obama


WASHINGTON — The Senate on Wednesday turned aside the latest attempt by

gun advocates to expand the rights of gun owners, narrowly voting down

a provision that would have allowed gun owners with valid permits from

one state to carry concealed weapons in other states.

A group comprising mostly Republicans, along with some influential Democrats, had tried to attach

the gun amendment to the annual defense authorization bill, a must-pass

piece of legislation. But the provision got only 58 votes, two short of

the 6o votes needed for passage under Senate rules. – [source]
