Update - Show Me Progress has posted updates/statements from Senator McCaskill.
For a certain someone who demanded a post on this mess tonight.
Missouri Senators split their votes on the concealed carry amendment.
The reason why one of them split made my Afro hurt.
From Jessica Machetta at Missourinet…
“Sen. McCaskill says she was not against letting people carry concealed weapons. But she is against requiring one state to accept another state's laws that might differ from its own. She says it would be a foot in the door that could allow Vermont's laws on gay marriage to be enforced in Missouri, which has a constitutional provision against gay marriage.”
Wince...attempt to soothe Afro...continue.
What the fuck?
Is it too much to ask for our Democratic Senator to vote against an extension of concealed carry permit privileges across state lines without taking cover behind the emaciated civil rights of her LGBT constituents?
