APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Please Contact Virginia Governor Mark Warner!

Saturday, April 2, 2005

Please contact Governor Mark Warner (D) and thank him for signing NRA-backed legislation!  Following passage by Virginia’s General Assembly, pro-gun Governor Mark Warner recently signed numerous pro-gun bills that will further protect the Commonwealth’s law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen, including: 

HB 2535 - Delegate Riley Ingram (del_ingram@house.state.va.us): allows right to carry permit holders to possess a concealed handgun in their vehicle on school property, provided that they remain in their vehicle and that the handgun remains concealed at all times.

HB 2282 - Delegate Bill Janis (del_Janis@house.state.va.us): increases protection of existing shooting ranges by prohibiting localities from subjecting ranges to noise standards not in effect when the range was constructed, or when a range construction permit was applied for.

HB 2828 - Delegate Tommy Wright (del_wright@house.state.va.us): this new measure requires that when a right to carry permit denial is based only on a written statement from a sheriff, chief local law enforcement officer, or Commonwealth Attorney, the applicant shall receive due process and the Court must base the denial upon a preponderance of evidence.  

HB 2931 - Delegate Bob McDonnell (del_mcdonnell@house.state.va.us): reduces the amount of information that firearm purchasers must provide on the Virginia State Police transaction form by eliminating duplicate questions that also appear on the federal form.

HB 2683 - Delegate Scott Lingamfelter (del_lingamfelter@house.state.va.us): streamlines reporting for gun show promoters. 

HB 2689 - Delegate Albert Pollard (del_pollard@house.state.va.us): allows for floating duck blinds on portions of the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers where previously they were prohibited, bringing these areas into accord with the rest of the state.

Again, please contact Governor Warner and thank him for his strong support for the Second Amendment.

The Honorable Mark R. Warner
