Gov. McAuliffe Pushes Gun Control by Vetoing First Bill

Virginia’s new governor, Terry McAuliffe, seems determined to turn the Old Dominion into Andrew Cuomo’s less-than-gun-friendly New York.
Check it out:

Gov. Terry McAuliffe used his veto power for the first time Tuesday, rejecting a bill that would have made it clear all legitimate gun owners could carry a weapon in an unlocked glove box or console of their cars.

Del. Ben Cline, R-Rockbridge County, is a sponsor of the bill. He says his legislation was meant to clarify that existing state laws allows gun owners who do not have a concealed carry permit to put guns in secure compartments. He considered McAuliffe’s veto a direct assault on the right to bear arms and accused him of courting the gun control lobby:

Cline said he was “disappointed that Governor McAuliffe’s first use of the veto is in opposition to a bill defending the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Virginians. “The governor is clearly listening to his friends in the gun-control lobby instead of the majority of Virginians who support the Second Amendment.”
