Gov. Terry McAuliffe Vetoes Pro Gun Rights Bill in Virginia

 

Well, who didn’t see this one coming? I guess Michael Bloomberg is finally seeing a return on investment after propping up Terry McAuliffe’s campaign in Virginia.

According to the Virginia Pilot, McAuliffe has vetoed HB962. The bill would have clarified VA law to allow people without carry permits to keep loaded firearms in their cars.

Of course, the Bloomberg backed McAuliffe won’t stand for more people to be able to defend themselves in more places, so he vetoed his first bill as governor.

He vetoed Del. Ben Cline’s HB962, intended to clarify that gun owners without concealed handgun permits can keep the weapons in their vehicles if they’re secured in compartments that aren’t locked. McAuliffe considers that broadened definition a public safety risk.

An amendment from McAuliffe had required storage of weapons in locked containers but was rejected by the Republican-run House of Delegates earlier this month. Cline, R-Rockbridge County, has said the legislation is necessary to make it clear that a storage container needn’t be locked to comply with the law.

McAuliffe’s veto is the final action on Cline’s bill this year, legislative officials said.

Unfortunately, due to some legislative procedures, the state legislature can’t consider overturning the veto this legislative session, leaving more Virginians legally unable to carry a firearm in their car.
