Last week, the House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety passed four pro-gun bills. These bills will now be voted on by the full House of Delegates tomorrow, Tuesday, February 10.
- HB 1655, introduced by Delegate Charles Carrico (R-5), requires a court to award reasonable attorney fees, expenses, and court costs to any entity that prevails in an action challenging an ordinance, resolution, motion, or administrative action as being in conflict with a locality's authority to control firearms.
- HB 1851, sponsored by Delegate L. Scott Lingamfelter (R-31), will exempt active duty military personnel or Virginia National Guardsmen from Virginia’s “one gun a month” law on handgun purchases.
- HB 2144, introduced by Delegate David Nutter (R-7), would restrict access to the Virginia concealed carry permit holder list maintained by the Virginia State Police. As you may recall, the Roanoke Times abused this data by creating a public online database with information about Virginia’s Right-to-Carry permit holders.
- HB 2528, sponsored by Delegate Mark Cole (R-88), would require that any locality holding gun "buybacks" sell the firearms to a federally licensed dealer. In many cases those firearms are destroyed.
