On Thursday, January 26, at 5:00 p.m., the Virginia House Militia, Police, and Public Safety subcommittee met and heard two extremely important pro-gun bills: House Bill 704 and House Bill 1265, sponsored by Delegate Clarke Hogan (R-60) and Delegate Bill Janis (R-56), respectively.
HB 704 seeks to further enhance Virginia’s preemption statute by prohibiting counties from regulating hunting and the discharge of firearms. HB 1265 would prohibit any government authority from limiting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms during a declared "State of Emergency."
These measures are likely to move swiftly through committee, so please contact your Delegate at (804) 698-1500 and ask him or her to support both of these strong pro-Second Amendment bills on the House floor! To further comment on these NRA-backed bills please call the "constituent viewpoint" line at (800) 889-0229.
