Republican lawmakers are trying to muster the votes to force through controversial measures on guns, abortion and tort reform that the governor vetoed earlier this year.

Senate President Pro Tem Peter Kinder says the Republican leadership hopes to override at least three -- and perhaps as many as six or seven -- of Governor Bob Holden's vetos.

Among the bills on Kinder's list are laws that require women to wait 24 hours before having an abortion -- allow Missourian's to carry concealed weapons -- and put a cap on medical malpractice awards.
