Politicians occasionally do the right thing

The Minnesota Senate passed the concealed carry law in pretty much the same form it was originally adopted in yesterday, by a 44-21 majority. Nearly all of the DFL's amendments to weaken the law were reversed by the full Senate. The only change that I object to would allow a crime of which the applicant was acquitted to be considered in refusing a permit. If someone has been acquitted of a crime, they legally did not do it; why should a crime that they didn't commit be held against them?

Even so, it's a sign that politicians can do the right thing if their constituents speak up loud enough.
