Yesterday afternoon, the Virginia Senate defeated SB 48, which would have placed 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." Please contact your Senator and thank them for defeating SB 48. You can find contact information by using the "Write Your Representatives" feature at the right.
