McAuliffe May Veto at Least One Gun Bill

The Times Dispatch reports this morning that among the bills on Governor McAuliffe's possible veto list is a bill that let felons who had served their time and had their rights restored in other states, possess firearms in Virginia.  HB 2286, which was sponsored by Delegate Michael Webert, passed the House 65-35.  It passed the Senate on a vote of 24-16.  If vetoed, it would take 27 votes in the Senate to override it.  Governor McAuliffe has until midnight Sunday to complete his action on legislation.  The General Assembly reconvenes on April 15 for a one day session to take the Governor's amendments and vetoes.

I had the chance to talk with Cam Edwards of Sportsman Channel's NRANews Cam and Company about the gun bills that have been signed and what's left.
