Senate to Debate Legislation to Repeal Virginia's Firearms Preemption Law!

Friday, January 18, 2008

Please Contact the Senate Local Government Committee Today!

On Tuesday, January 22, beginning at 2:00 p.m., the Senate Local Government Committee is expected to consider three anti gun proposals, all of which target Virginia's commonsense firearms preemption statute. Senate Bill 32 sponsored by Senator Mamie Locke (D-2), would allow localities to prohibit possession of firearms in public libraries.  Senate Bill 33, also sponsored by Senator Locke, would allow localities to prohibit possession of firearms at outdoor events, such as fairs and carnivals. Senate Bill 300, introduced by Senator Mary Margaret Whipple (D-31), which would authorize any locality to ban the possession of firearms in government buildings.

If enacted, any of these proposals would tear apart Virginia's preemption statute paving the way for the Old Dominion to become an incomprehensible patchwork of gun regulations varying from one locality to the next. Such a development could lead to otherwise law-abiding citizens being charged for violating an ordinance of which they were unaware!

Please contact the Senate Local Government Committee members listed below and strongly encourage them to protect Virginia's commonsense preemption statutes and your Second Amendment rights by voting against SB32, SB 33, and SB300.
