Update on Pending Firearm Legislation in Virginia

Friday, January 26, 2007

 

Earlier this week, the Virginia Senate easily turned back two proposals aimed at restricting the rights of Virginia gun owners. On Wednesday, the Senate Courts of Justice Committee soundly rejected Senate Bill 827, a bill crafted to end gun shows and regulate private firearm transactions. On Tuesday, the Senate Local Government Committee defeated Senate Bill 767, sponsored by Senator Mamie Locke (D-2). Senator Locke’s measure would have gutted Virginia’s firearms preemption statute by allowing localities to ban lawful possession of firearms in public libraries. 

Thank you for taking the time to contact your Senators regarding these threats to our cherished freedoms! If your Senator serves on one, or both, of the above-mentioned committees, you can find information on how he or she voted on these measures at: http://legis.state.va.us/

In the Virginia House of Delegates, several key pro-gun measures are on the move. Please contact your Delegate at (804)-698-1500 and urge him or her to support the following bills:

House Bill 3109, sponsored by Delegate Bill Janis (R-56), would decrease the areas in which localities could restrict lawful sport-shooting and hunting; House Bill 2588, also sponsored by Delegate Janis, would require the State Police to approve a federal machine gun application within 15 days if there is no evidence that the applicant is prohibited from owning or collecting fully-automatic firearms or other Class III items; House Bill 2235, sponsored by Delegate Dave Nutter (R-7), would require Virginia to recognize concealed carry permits from all other states; House Bill 2652, sponsored by Delegate Scott Lingamfelter (R-31), makes technical changes to better organize the concealed carry permit statute.
