Critical Second Amendment Legislation Pending in the Virginia General Assembly!

Friday, January 12, 2007

 

While the Virginia General Assembly is only a few days into the 2007 session, numerous firearms-related bills have already been filed and will soon be assigned to committee. So far, this year’s bills run the full spectrum from measures that blatantly attack your Right to Keep and Bear Arms and your right to self-defense, to proposals that would greatly enhance the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

During the last few legislative sessions, we have witnessed several attempts by gun-ban advocates to eliminate gun shows in the Commonwealth, and this session is no different. Senate Bill 827, introduced by Senator Jeannemarie Devolites Davis (R-34), would require all firearms transactions that take place a gun shows to be subject to background checks, and would also require gun show promoters to register all vendors (private citizens as well as licensed dealers), and maintain that registry for the four years following the date of the gun show.
 

In stark contrast to the efforts of Senator Devolites Davis, numerous pro-gun bills have been filed in the House of Delegates, and it is important that you contact your Delegate and strongly encourage him or her to support the following measures:


House Bill 1626
, Delegate Bill Janis (R- 56): Castle Doctrine.

House Bill 2106, Delegate Charles Carrico (R-5): Removes the option for localities to require fingerprints for concealed carry permit applicants.

House Bill 2235, Delegate David Nutter (R-7): full-recognition of out-of-state carry permits.

House Bill 2300, Delegate Mark Cole (R-88): prohibits state entities and institutes of higher learning from adopting rules or policy to regulate firearms possession.

 

Please call your State Senator at (804)-698-7410 and strongly encourage him or her to oppose Senator Devolites Davis’ attack on lawful gun shows, and be sure to call your State Delegate at (804)-698-1500 and urge him or her to support the above-referenced House bills.
