Today, the state Senate General Laws and Technology Committee passed Senate Bill 245 by a 13 to 2 vote. This legislation will now be sent to the floor of the Virginia Senate, where it will be voted on this week.
Sponsored by state Senator Mark Obenshain (R-26), SB 245 would update and strengthen Virginia’s Emergency Powers statute by adding lawful carrying and transportation of firearms to the list of actions that cannot be prohibited during a declaration of emergency. This legislation would improve current language and guarantee all your Second Amendment rights when you may need them most, during a declared state of emergency.
Please contact your state Senator today and respectfully urge him or her to support this important self-defense legislation when it is considered on the Senate floor. To find your state Senator and their contact information please click here.
