Please Contact the Members of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee Today!
The Criminal Sub-Committee of the Senate Courts of Justice is waiting to take up Senate Bill 1166. Sponsored by State Senator John Watkins (R-10), this bill would increase the gun tax charged by the Virginia State Police to run a NICS check from $2 to $5, a 150% increase for Virginia residents. For non-state residents, the legislation mandates an increase of 60%, from $5 to $8.
Please contact the members of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee TODAY and respectfully request them to oppose a tax increase on the Second Amendment rights of Virginia’s law-abiding gun owners. Contact information can be found below.
