McAuliffe Wields First Veto To Shoot Down Gun Bill

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has vetoed his first piece of legislation.

Delegate Ben Cline says his bill 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, like a glove compartment, in their vehicles.

McAuliffe wants the compartments to be locked, and tried unsuccessfully to amend Cline's bill during the legislative session.
