Gov. Tom Wolf (R) vetoed a law on Thursday that would have removed the state’s requirement that law-abiding Pennsylvanians be licensed before carrying a gun in self-defense.

PennLive pointed out that Constitutional Transport Sponsor Senator Cris Dush (R-Jefferson County) countered Wolf’s claim, saying, “No criminal ever said, ‘I want to commit assault and murder. – but I have to wait for my permit to carry in. ‘”
