Because the Senate is about to vote on the Thune-Vitter amendment which provides for interstate recognition of your CCW permits. Vote YES! You still have to obey each state's laws, but you no longer need a fat wallet full of non-resident permits. There are other threads debating the advantages and disadvantages of this amendment, so I won't go there here. Keep their mailboxes full and their phones busy; they are pretending to be blue-dog democrats, but this is where they must fish or cut bait on RKBA.. Sen. Webb (202) 224-4024 Sen. Warner (202) 224-2023 I'll bet nobody gets to talk to a live staff member, they are all afraid of us. Make them hide in shame, or explain the actions (if any). Whether you are for or against the amendment, call your senators.
