Virginia Pro-Second Amendment Bills Head to Senate Floor!

Monday, March 6, 2006

 

Please Contact Your State Senator!

On Monday, March 6, the Senate Courts of Justice Committee voted in favor of several pro-Second Amendment bills. 

 

House Bill 162, sponsored by Delegate Scott Lingamfelter (R-31), passed out of committee with an 8 to 7 vote.  This important bill prohibits a business from enacting policies that ban lawfully possessed firearms stored in locked vehicles parked in public accessible parking areas.  Without the necessary provisions in HB 162, law-abiding employees and patrons could be denied the means to defend themselves and their families while away from their homes.

 

Sponsored by Delegate Bill Janis (R-56), House Bill 1265 is a measure that would prohibit the Governor, or any government agency, from suspending the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in the Commonwealth during a state of emergency.  HB 1265 is NRA-backed legislation that will protect the lawful possession, sale, transfer, transport and carrying of firearms during an emergency or disaster, therefore ensuring that law-abiding citizens have the necessary means to protect themselves and their families, and their property if the need should arise. 

 

House Bill 1577, the Omnibus Firearms bill sponsored by Delegate Ben Cline (R-24), includes the following provisions: HB 1577 creates a “lifetime” concealed carry permit by authorizing the State Police to conduct annual criminal history checks on permit owners, and to “roll-over” all eligible and valid permits at no cost to the permit holder (permit holders who move out of their original issuing jurisdiction will have to re-apply for a new permit); eliminates the ability for a locality to require concealed carry permit applicants to submit fingerprints as part of the application process; and provides a 90-day grace period for members of the armed services to renew a concealed carry permit if the permit expired while the military member was deployed. 

Both HB 1265 and HB 1577 passed out of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee with an 11 to 4 vote.  Over the next two days, HB 162, HB 1265 and HB 1577 will be heard on the Senate floor.
