Virginia Legislature Moving Fast on Firearms Legislation!

Friday, January 19, 2007

 

Pro-gun champion Delegate Bill Janis (R-56) has introduced several NRA-supported measures currently awaiting committee hearings in the Virginia House of Delegates. Among these bills are:  House Bill 1626, Virginia “Castle Doctrine” legislation; House Bill 2593, a bill that, if passed, would authorize a Judge of the Commonwealth to carry a concealed firearm without obtaining a permit; and House Bill 3109, a proposal that would limit the areas in which a locality could restrict hunting or the discharge of firearms. Please contact your Delegate at (804) 698-1500 and urge him or her to support the above-mentioned bills. 

As reported earlier in this week, Senate Bill 827, a bill to abolish gun shows, sponsored by Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis (R-34), was scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Courts of Justice Committee on Wednesday. However, the bill was “held over” and is now scheduled for a hearing on Monday, January 21, at 9:00 a.m.  Please continue to call your State Senator at (804)-698-7410, particularly if he or she serves on the Senate Courts of Justice Committee, and strongly urge him or her to oppose SB827. 

Finally, another anti-gun measure, House Bill 2173 sponsored by Delegate Mamye BaCote (D-95), that would have gutted Virginia’s preemption statute by allowing localities to regulate lawful possession of firearms in public libraries, was soundly defeated in a Militia, Police and Public Safety sub-committee. Our thanks to Chairman Tommy Wright (R-61) and fellow pro-gun sub-committee members Delegates Morgan Griffith (R-8), Dave Nutter (R-7),and Scott Lingamfelter (R-31) for protecting the integrity of Virginia’s preemption statutes!
