Gov. Terry McAuliffe's First Veto Is Against Gun Owners

On March 19th Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) used his first veto to strike down a bill “meant to clarify state law” regarding how gun owners without a concealed carry permit may store firearms in a vehicle.

The bill, HB 962, was sponsored by Delegate Benjamin L. Cline (R-Rockbridge). 

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the bill said “the weapon would be considered secured if it was in a container or compartment – such as console or glove compartment – that was closed but not necessarily locked.”

McAuliffe wanted the bill to say that individuals without concealed carry permits had to have the gun locked in a compartment, not just secured.
