Private Firearms Transactions Under Attack in the Old Dominion!

Thursday, January 17, 2008

Tomorrow, January 18 the Virginia House of Delegates Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee will hear two proposals that could serve as a first step toward regulating all private firearm transactions. Both bills, House Bill 592 offered by Delegate Dave Marsden (D-41) and House Bill 745 offered by Delegate Chuck Caputo (D-67), would require state and federal background checks to be conducted on all firearms transactions at Virginia gun shows.

Federal and state law already requires federally licensed firearms dealers to conduct a background check on all prospective purchases.  This legislation is simply a first step toward requiring government approval before individuals may sell their private property, even between family and friends.

Please act now by contacting all Committee members and urge them to defend your Second Amendment and privacy rights by opposing both HB592 and HB745!
