Senate Bill 1335, patroned by Senator Mark Obenshain (R-26), was reported with a substitute by the House Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee today by a 16-6 vote. The amended version of this bill protects the confidentiality of all concealed handgun permit (CHP) holders in Virginia. S.B. 1335 will be considered on the House floor next week.
This legislation is essential for the protection of law-abiding gun owners in the Old Dominion. Recently, there have been several instances of anti-gun media outlets publishing the names and addresses of CHP holders jeopardizing the safety and violating the privacy of law-abiding citizens. Such publications place lawful CHP holders at risk to criminals who may target their home to steal firearms. S.B.1335 would ensure that this never happens in Virginia.
It is important that you contact your state Delegate TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to vote for S.B. 1335 because it will increase the safety of Virginians across the Commonwealth. For help identifying your elected official and contact information, please click here.
