Yesterday, Monday, February 9, the Virginia Senate passed Senate Bill 1166 by a 27-13 vote. SB1166 now heads to the House where it awaits a committee assignment.
This bill would increase the gun tax charged by the Virginia State Police to run the mandatory background 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. Once SB1166 is assigned to a House committee, we will let you know where to direct your efforts in opposition.
