    How did your Senator vote? Even Wisconsin got a Yes vote. 2 votes shy of passing.

    Roll Call: How senators voted on concealed weapons

    I know, I was floored by that also... heh.

    2 no votes from Ohio, one no vote from Indiana. Some of the high and mighty here that like to pound away at Illinois have some problems at home they should be dealing with.

    I'm for reciprocol CCW permits but ...... aren't we on the other side of the double edge sword here looking to the Federal Government to tell us what we can and cannot do with our firearms?

    Scott and noknock...

    No shock that Indiana was split. Completely floored that Bayh voted yes and Lugar no. I would of thought it was going to be vice versa. Was there other crap attached to the bill to lure the democrat vote?

    ditto what noknock said about Lugar and go ahead and apply it also to Bayh. He sure a'int his daddy. (as many a folk has said about me!) Completely lost all Hoosier mentality.

    I'm not sure, but I don't believe that you even need a permit to carry in Vermont. They both voted " no " ? I'm confused.

    The only time Lugar ever comes back to Indiana is when it is election time for him, and I'm not even sure if he even came back the last time. I don't think he has been in Southern Indiana in the last 15 years. Somebody should tell him that it is a foreign country and be might pay a visit to the land south of state road 40.

    We need to start a group - Republican Hoosier tired of Lugar. He needs to be defeated in the primary.

    heap,,,,it is a trapshooter(s) site,,,,i suppose you are one of those that ONLY believes that single and double barrels should be protected by the 2nd Amendment and that if the libs take SOME guns they won't take YOURS,,,,sad, but this is the type of discension (sp?) that hurts EVERYONE!!!!

    Don't be too upset about how the votes turned out,,,,look at Harry Reid,,,,Pro gun....NOT,,,,this was all set up for the dumbos to strut out as a "Pro-Gun" supporter,,,,How many of the yes votes are up for election in 2010????

    Nope, I live in Vermont and you don't need any permit for CC. No gun laws at all here, just Federal laws. I'm also confused about why the two of them voted the way they did. If both of them had been "yes", the law would have passed...

    On the democrat side this vote was a complete and total sham, orchestrated by Harry Reid. Harry and Charles Schumer knew pretty much who was voting how. They then allowed those democrats who were in tight elections where there are a lot of gun owners to vote for cloture.

    Harry Reid votes "for gun right" as he is vulnerable in his reelection campaign. Same with Kay Hagen. The best was Mark Pryor from Arkansas. He originally voted "NO" on the rollcall as Reid was not exactly sure how the republicans would vote. Once they knew that they had 60 votes, Schumer and Pryor had a discussion and Pryor was allowed to change his vote.

    This was a "vote for show" and was engineered to allow some democrats to look like they were gun friendly.

    You have it right about old Harry, Tachyon. I even got a letter from the NRA telling me that Harry is one of the pro-gun good guys. I don't but that for a second and neither do the other Nevadans I know. What I do find interesting is that Harry evidently has gotten the message that we don't like gun grabbing politicians, hopefully he will come to learn that we don't like the money grabbers either.

    Could someone tell me what the point was of that bill? Pretty much every state that has a CCW law allows reciprocity to anyone with a CCW from another state.

    Reciprocity is not automatic, nor is it equal. Several of the states recognize only ccws from residents of the state issuing. I.E., an Illinois resident (also called the opressed minority) holding an Utah permit is not recognized in Fla, Mich, and many others. Michigan recognizes only permits held by residents of states issuing.

    BTW, our two backstabbing senators from IL voted "no" but it was no surprise as they are nothing but shills from the Chicago machine, as are a couple of nameless clowns at a higher level of government.
