I just got word that the Nationwide Reciprocity amendment failed to pass by 2 votes. We had a large majority, but needed 60 votes to pass, and ended up with only 58 yes votes. We had almost a 20% majority, but because of a few key votes, the amendment was defeated.
As mentioned below, Senator Dick Lugar from Indiana was among the “no” votes. Allegedely pro-gun, this is the second time in recent memory that Sen Lugar has shown no interest in expanding and preserving the rights of law abiding Hoosier gun owners. This troubling track record has lead me to the decision to actively work against Sen. Lugar at the next election, assuming his opponent is pro-gun. Turning his back on the law-abiding Hoosiers needs to be a serious mistake for the Senator, and I encourage you to call his office and express your discontent.
