Governor Vetoes Concealed Carry Weapons Bill

By  | 

The veto Governor Jim Doyle said he would deliver came Friday evening. He nixed the concealed carry weapons bill the senate sent to his desk earlier this week.
The bill would let residents carry hidden guns and knives, but Doyle's move could set up a not-so-hidden political battle.
His veto could be challenged. To override it, two-thirds of the assembly and two-thirds of the senate would have to vote in favor of an override.
Doyle says the bill would just put more guns on the street, and added the legislature should spend more time on job creation, not guns.
