Virginia - Urge Your Senator To <BR>Oppose Gun Show Bill (SB 48) Today

Thursday, January 22, 2004

The Virginia State Senate Courts of Justice Committee has passed Senate Bill 48. SB 48, sponsored by Senator Henry L. Marsh (D-16) will place a $15 tax on any private transfer of a firearm at a gun show and force sellers to register with the Virginia State Police. SB 48 defines a gun show as any place where 25 or more guns are offered for sale. This would mean any collector’s home could become a "gun show."

The bill now moves to the Senate Finance Committee where it could be voted out and moved to the floor by next week. Call your Senator and respectfully urge him or her to vote against SB 48. You will find your senator`s phone numbers below. To identify your district or for additional contact information use the "Write Your Representatives" link in the "Action Center" to the right. Visit http://www.nraila.org/Issues/FactSheets/Read.aspx?ID=157 for more information on gun shows.
