Glenn Beck likes to bring his gun to the movies.

"Glenn Beck likes to bring his gun to the movies."

This afternoon, the Senate defeated an amendment sponsored by Sen. John Thune (R-SD) that would have allowed individuals with concealed carry gun permits to carry firearms into another state. Later on Fox News, Glenn Beck interviewed Thune to discuss the measure. “We’re going to disagree,” Beck warned Thune, but later, he made sure to present his gun-totin’ bona fides. “I’m a gun owner, and I’m a member of the NRA, and I am a concealed weapons permit holder. So, I mean, I love guns!” Beck boasted. He then aired a clip of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg criticizing concealed carry laws. “They’ll be able to go to the movies with guns and there will be nothing that our police officers can do about it,” Bloomberg complained. Beck then mocked Bloomberg’s concern:

BECK: I went to the movie this weekend with a gun. And surprise, surprise, I didn’t kill anybody!
