I seem to remember somewhere it included a provision that "mandated" reciprocity?
Anyone know?

( LOL! I said mandated! )

I seem to recal that reciprocity got stripped out a while back.

And the recipricocity was watered down in that a non-resident permit was not valid in the resident's home state.

Yes, the reciprocity was stripped out completely.

It seems they wanted a bill that protects gays, but not enough bill to allow gays to protect themselves.

What happened was the hate crime bill got tied to the defense appropriations bill and the Thune bill was added as a proposed amendment to the defense appropriation bill.

It isn't like it wasn't tried, but that is the way things happen.

Probably realized a lot of gunners would of faked being gay.
