Senate Fails To Override Kaine Concealed Gun Vetoes

March 5, 2008

(AP) Senators came up short Wednesday in an attempt to override Governor Tim Kaine's vetoes of bills that could have resulted in more concealed weapons in cars and restaurants.

The Senate voted 25-15 to override Kaine's veto of a bill that would have allowed people who don't have a concealed-weapons permit
to transport a gun in a locked glove box or other interior compartment of a vehicle.

Senators voted 22-18 to override the veto of a bill to allow permit holders to carry concealed weapons into restaurants and bars as long as they didn't drink alcohol.

A two-thirds vote of both chambers, 27 votes in the Senate and 67 in the House of Delegates, is required to override a veto.
