Virginia Senate Committee Likely to Vote on Concealed Carry Reform!

Tuesday, February 5, 2008

Please Contact Members of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee Today! 

Earlier this week, the Virginia Senate Courts of Justice Committee delayed taking action on Senate Bill 476, sponsored by Senator Emmett Hanger (R-24). SB476 is an important concealed carry reform bill that would allow restaurant owners to decide if lawfully concealed firearms are allowed in their establishments, provided the permit holder does not consume alcohol. Current Virginia statue allows restaurateurs to permit open carrying, but not concealed carry for lawfully permitted citizens.  

The Courts of Justice Committee will likely consider SB476 during its regularly scheduled meeting tomorrow beginning at 2:00 p.m.

Please contact the below listed members of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee and strongly encourage them to protect your right to self-defense by supporting and voting for SB476!
