Virginia Senate Rejects Gun Show Bill!

Friday, January 28, 2005

This week, the Virginia Senate rejected SB 807, a bill that would have required background checks on all firearm transactions at gun shows. Prior to the vote, gun show opponents went so far as to cite fictional characters in a novel in a shameless attempt to justify their misguided attack on legal firearms transactions. Fortunately, by a vote of 20-17, the Senate once again sided with Virginia`s law-abiding gun owners and refused to enact a solution in search of a problem.

Special thanks to Senators Ken Cuccinelli (R-37), Ken Stolle (R-8) Creigh Deeds (D-25), and John Edwards (D-21) for their leadership and support on the Senate floor. To find out how your Senator voted on this critical bill, please visit http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?051+vot+SV0111+SB0807. Please take the time to thank those Senators that voted to preserve Virginia`s gun shows, as well as to express your disappointment with those who voted in favor of SB 807.
