Two Virginia Pro-Gun Bills Advancing in Richmond!

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

Two important pro-gun initiatives are currently making their way through the Virginia General Assembly.

 

House Bill 1851, sponsored by Delegate L. Scott Lingamfelter (R-31), is set for a hearing tomorrow, Wednesday, February 18 at 2 p.m. in the Senate Courts of Justice Committee.  This NRA-backed bill will exempt active duty military personnel or Virginia National Guardsmen from Virginia’s “one gun a month” law on handgun purchases.  It is important that you contact the members of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee and voice your support for this critical bill.

In addition, the Senate Local Government Committee passed House Bill 2528 by an 8-7 vote today.  HB2528 now heads to the full Senate for consideration.  Introduced by Delegate Mark Cole (R-88), HB 2528 would establish that no locality or entity may participate in a gun “buyback” program where individuals are given a thing of value or money in exchange for surrendering a firearm to the locality unless the governing body passes an ordinance authorizing a gun “buyback.”  The legislation requires that any locality holding gun "buybacks" sell the firearms to a federally licensed dealer.  In many cases those firearms are destroyed.

Please contact the members of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support HB1851.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.  Also, please be sure to contact your State Senator and respectfully urge them to support HB2528.  Please click
