A "gun" fight

Well, not exactly, But definitely, a fight over guns.

The U.S. Senate today rejected an attempt to force gun carrying reciprocity nationwide. If passed, someone with a carrying permit in South Dakota would have been able to carry that gun to New Jersey _ even if he had no right to carry permit in New Jersey, where gun laws are very restrictive.
  
 During the debate, a proponent of the measure, Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, said Central Park might be a safer place “if a 
person from South Dakota with a carry permit” visited.

Sure … that’s what we need in crowded and congested Central Park — a whole bunch of people packing heat.
