House of Delegates Overrides Veto of HB2528

The House of Delegates just overrode Governor Kaine's veto of HB2528 by a vote of 71-Y 28-N. HB2528 is the bill that provides some much needed sunshine on localities that want to run compensated gun confiscation ("gun buyback") schemes. Localities would have to pass an ordinance allowing them to operate "buyback" before holding it (this would give the public notice that taxpayer funds would be used for such a scheme). The bill also makes clear that localities would have to dispose of the firearms taken in by either making them available for sale to an FFL or dispose of them in some other appropriate manner.

The bill now moves to the Senate for an override vote.
