Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin on Friday vetoed a bill that would have eliminated criminal penalties for carrying concealed firearms without a permit (SB347), his office announced.
In a statement, Tomblin said, “Throughout my career, I have strongly supported the Second Amendment, as demonstrated by my repeated endorsements and high grades from the National Rifle Association. However, I must also be responsive to the apprehension of law enforcement officers from across the state, who have concerns about the bill as it relates to the safety of their fellow officers.”
|So now it's official, as announced by the governor: West Virginia is a police state.
The rights of the people are secondary to the safety of law enforcement officers.
It just goes to prove that political party means nothing. Republican Tomblin joins with Democrat Manchin and Democrat/Republican/Independent (whatever works) Bloomberg to relegate the people to second place behind the police.
You know about the Kennedy, Bush and Cuomo dynasties. Do you also know about the Manchin dynasty?
