Urgent Virginia Legislative Alert!

Wednesday, February 16, 2005

 Dear Virginia NRA Member:

Two pro-gun bills have passed out of Virginia’s Senate Courts of Justice Committee and will be heard on the Senate floor this week.  Both measures will work to enhance Virginia’s successful Right-to-Carry permit process, and were overwhelmingly passed by the House of Delegates earlier this session.

Please call, email, or fax your Senator and respectfully encourage him or her to support both of these bills, and send them to Governor Warner for his signature:

HB 2928, sponsored by Del. Tommy Wright (R-61) will ensure that Right-to-Carry permit applicants receive due process in cases where an application denial is based only on a written statement from a Sheriff, Chief of Police, or the Commonwealth Attorney.

HB 2535, sponsored by Del. Riley Ingram (R-62) allows Right-to-Carry permit holders to have a concealed handgun on school property, provided that the permit holder remains in his or her vehicle. 

Also, three additional measures concerning sportsmen and law-abiding firearm owners will be heard in Senate committees this week. Please contact your Senator and urge him or her to support all of these pro-Second Amendment proposals:

HB 2282, sponsored by Del. Bill Janis (R-56) will create a statewide standard for range noise measurement that ensures Virginia’s sportsmen have adequate venues in which to practice firearm safety and proficiency.

HB 2931, sponsored by Del. Bob McDonnell (R-84) streamlines Virginia’s State Police firearm, transaction form by removing questions duplicated on the Federal form 4473.

HB 2926, sponsored by Del. Dick Black (R-32) strengthens protections for firearm and ammunition manufacturers from reckless lawsuits by prohibiting suits filed by individuals, organizations, and other entities for third party criminal acts committed with a firearm. 

The clock is winding down on this year’s legislative session, so please take the time today to contact your Senator and urge him or her to support the above referenced bills! Also, please share this information with your family, friends and fellow sportsmen and have them contact their Senator as well. You can find contact information for your legislator by using the “Write Your Representatives” feature at http://www.nraila.org/.

Thank you,
