Virginia’s Democratic Governor Mcauliffe Vetoes A Stack of Pro Gun Bills

Truth is, Governor, that you are NOT interested in protecting the rights of Virginia’s citizens. Quite the opposite. You are interested in empowering states like Maryland to mistreat and entrap Virginians.

Virginia’s Democratic Governor McAuliffe vetoed the following Pro Gun bills:

SB 948, Senator Stuart, keeps CHP holder information from being shared with states, like Maryland, which don’t honor Virginia permits. Governor gave this excuse for the veto:

“This bill could unnecessarily hamper criminal investigations in other states and put our law enforcement officers at risk.”

Permit holders committing crimes in other states? Permit holders putting officers in other states at risk? Your excuses, sir, are pure horse pucky.

Truth is, Governor, that you are NOT interested in protecting the rights of Virginia’s citizens. Quite the opposite. You are interested in empowering states like Maryland to mistreat and entrap Virginians.

SB 1137, Senator Garrett, allows CHP holders to have a loaded long gun in their vehicle regardless of what a local ordinance says. Governor’s excuse:

“This legislation ignores long-established fire arm safety procedures and could endanger law enforcement officers in the line of duty. “

Forgetting that the Governor can’t spell “firearms,” people can already carry loaded long guns in vehicles in many localities in the state and have been doing so without incident. All this bill did was make the law consistent. And “endangering law enforcement?” Is that the best you can come up with, Governor? You are sounding like a broken record.
