I agree and feel the groundswell too,, I also prefer to keep the fed out of constitutional carry rights!Fingers crossed and waiting with baited breath that WVA will be the next state to have Constitutional Carry. That would be an eagle feather in that state's bonnet and put pressure on other state governments to do likewise, including particularly the VA General Assembly.
I see this as a growing ground swell - state after state embracing ConCarry. I much prefer this methodology as opposed to an attempt at passing such a federal law.
Indeed I should have said "bated" breath as a contraction of abated. That said we are in the process of changing the language definitions again.I agree and feel the groundswell too,, I also prefer to keep the fed out of constitutional carry rights!
But,,, you wrote "baited" breath, I did that once, Nightmare wrote me a poem to chide me over spelling,
maybe he will write one for you too,,, or, if you like, Ill share mine with you...
Well, I wont give you anymore flack about that,
Thanks for the info and good luck to West Virginia!Here's some more info on the over ride
The West Virginia legislature can override his veto with simple majorities in both houses. From wv.us:
Action by the Governor
After a bill passes both chambers in the same form, it is sent to the governor. While the Legislature is in session, the governor has five days to approve or veto a bill he or she receives. After the Legislature adjourns, the governor has 15 days to act on most bills. However, the budget bill and supplemental appropriations bills must be acted upon by the governor within five days regardless of when they are received. If the governor does not act within these time limits, bills automatically become law without his or her signature.
Overriding a Veto
If the Legislature is still in session when the governor vetoes a bill, a simple majority vote of the members of both legislative bodies is necessary to override the veto. In cases when a budget bill or supplemental appropriation bill is vetoed, a two-thirds vote of the members of both houses is needed to override the veto.
The West Virgina Legislature has until 12 March to override Governor Tomblin's veto. That is six working days from now. The bill passed with overwhelming support. 68-31 in the House, 24-9 in the Senate. Now we will see if the legislators really meant it when they voteed for Constitutional carry.
It takes only a simple majority to override a veto.
Linky no worky. Try this:WV senate over rides veto. consituional carry comes to WV
The West Virginia legislature did not waste any time in overriding
