    I can't believe anyone actually voted for this clown.

    Looks like the first part of my prediction came true. Just waiting for the second: There will be an inability to over-ride the veto. In fact, fewer people will vote for the same bill this time around because they fear opposition.

    But keep voting for people to fix the problems that were caused, in the first place, by voting people into positions of power with the ability to tax. Keep on believing it can happen, and it will!

    Well, yeah, but we're not a police state, since after all, the rights of commoners still exist on paper.

    Please see this thread VA Take Action

    the fight is NOT over, we can get this veto overidden but ONLY if you ACT. We snooze now and we LOSE!

    And even if Sans Authoritas is right and we lose the override, that only means for this year. We make progress every time unless we give up so I'll skip the defeatist attitude and keep fighting.

    Interestingly enough, the Mississippi State Troopers support our right, in Mississippi, to carry loaded in the car. I have been told so by the public affairs officer at the local Lions Club meeting.

    Oddly, he didn't take seriously the law enforcement officers who supported the bills.

    My guess would be he didn't listen to anyone and is now trying to use cops as a scapegoat for his liberal idiocy.

    Call your Delegate and State Senator NOW. They're willing to talk to their constituents, and will ask for your name and phone number in order to get back to you (we'll see if my two, both antis, follow through with that).

    or other interior compartment of a car.

    I thought this was allowed anywhere due to a federal law that protects transportation of firearms across state lines.

    Here is Georgia I have a loaded pistol locked in the glove box and I am pretty sure we recently had a rule change that we can have it in the console. Any place else in the cab it has to be in plain view and unloaded.

    I guess I need to check up on that myself.

    The federal law allows transport of an unloaded firearm in a locked container that is "not readily accessible" by the driver.

    Trunks are okay, gloveboxes and other "passenger compartment" locations are not.

    The Virginia law would have allowed the carry of a loaded weapon anywhere in the vehicle as long as that spot could be locked.
