As early as next week, the Virginia Senate may consider HB 2282, introduced by Second Amendment stalwart Delegate Bill Janis (R-56). HB 2282, if passed, will establish a statewide shooting range noise measurement standard. This legislation was carefully crafted to balance the growing need for adequate shooting facilities with the concerns of Virginia`s communities. Senate approval of this legislation will ensure that Virginia`s sport shooting community will continue to have venues in which to practice firearms safety and enhance proficiency. The VA House of Delegates overwhelmingly approved HB 2282 by a vote of 85-13.
Please take the time to contact your Senator, and strongly encourage him or her to protect Virginia`s sport shooting heritage by supporting HB 2282.
