  • Schwarzenegger Vows Gay Marriage Bill Veto

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced Wednesday he will veto a bill that would have made California the first state to legalize same-sex marriage through its elected lawmakers.

    Schwarzenegger said the legislation, given final approval Tuesday by lawmakers, would conflict with the intent of voters when they approved an initiative five years ago. Proposition 22 was placed on the ballot to prevent California from recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states or countries.

    "We cannot have a system where the people vote and the Legislature derails that vote," the governor's press secretary, Margita Thompson, said in a statement. "Out of respect for the will of the people, the governor will veto (the bill)."

    Well unless the NRA wants the state to overturn the will of the people, on lets say a conceal carry law?

    Not to mention that Prop 22 was not about allowing gay marriage in California.

          Can they? Yes. Chances of it happening? Just about zero. Then again, it is California...

          Dat's right!

            What's wrong with letting the voters or courts decide?

            The MO state legislature overruling the people on conceal and carry was BS.

              I thought the voters did decide when they voted for their legislative representatives?

                No, they don't have enough votes.

                Arnold is right in this case. There is already a mandated vote going through the courts. If it makes it through there then it's a done deal ... it can't be changed unless there's another vote. It's a slam dunk when it makes it through the courts.

                I don't know why the legislators would do this when they know the best way to make this happen is through the courts.
