What follows after the Thune-Vitter Amendment's narrow defeat. Cam Edwards speaks by phone with NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox about the Thune Amendment vote, where the piece of legislation failed by only two votes after securing a strong, bipartisan majority. Cox describes the vote as a "huge step forward" and a landmark initiative that brought the issue of right-to-carry reciprocity to the forefront of national discourse. He explains that the NRA will work to win over the few remaining senators needed to pass such an amendment, and they discuss the desperation evident in anti-gun slanders of concealed-carry permit holders.
