Senate rejects move to expand concealed carry rights


The Senate failed to attach an amendment to the annual military authorization bill Wednesday that would have made it legal for citizens who have valid permits to carry concealed guns in one state to carry concealed weapons in other states, the New York Times reports.

Sens. Richard G. Lugar (Republican of Indiana) and George V. Voinovich (Republican of Ohio) joined two independents and 35 Democrats to reject the amendment. Big-city mayors also opposed the legislation.
