Virginia Vetoes

posted on April 1, 2015

On Friday, anti-gun Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced his veto of three key pro-gun bills. Senate Bill 948 would prohibit the sharing of information on concealed-carry permit holders with law enforcement in states that do not have reciprocity agreements with Virginia. Senate Bill 1137 would prohibit local ordinances banning concealed carry permit holders from transporting a loaded rifle or shotgun. House Bill 2009 would limit to 60 days the amount of time a non-prohibited person has to wait for the certification of a chief law enforcement officer in order to transfer a firearm under the National Firearms Act.

Virginia residents should contact their delegates and state senators soon, as they will be deciding whether to attempt to override the vetoes.
