Sen. Thune introduced legislation that would have allowed the legal transport of concealed weapons across state lines - provided the gun owner followed state laws concerning weapons. Thune garnered decent support for the legislation including that of Sen. Tim Johnson. It was a common sense bill defeated by an emotional argument. In truth, if a gun owner follows the law of each state, he or she should be allowed to carry a concealed weapon across state lines without having to do so illegally.
