Not sure how I feel about it...Sort of believe states should work this out amongst themselves but listening to New York City Mayor Bloomberg's comments (starting at ~1:02) makes me wonder who is he kidding? He stated basically that the amendment would have allowed criminals to carry guns wherever they wanted and there would be nothing the police could do about it...

Hmmm...Let me get this right. The amendment was to allow LAW ABIDING people with a concealed carry permit in one state to have that permit legal in other states. But somehow Bloomberg states that this amendment would have allowed criminals to do the same? Ummm....So without this amendment the criminals are going to follow the "law" and drop off their guns at the border? Yeah, right...Since when do criminals follow the laws?

Looks like our two Congress Critters voted yes at least.
