Virginia: Restaurant Carry Measure Heading to the House Floor!

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

On Tuesday, February 9, the House Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee passed HB505, by a vote of 16 to 6.

House Bill 505 would allow a concealed carry permit holder to carry his or her firearm into a restaurant, provided he or she does not consume any alcohol.  This bill is similar to last year’s bill that was passed by both the House and Senate Chambers and ultimately vetoed by Governor Tim Kaine (D).

Two legislators, Delegate Jim Shuler (D-12) and Delegate Bill Barlow (D-64), who previously supported reforming Virginia's concealed carry statute, voted against this year’s bill.

Please contact both of these legislators and express your disappointment with their vote.  Contact information can be found below.

Also, please be sure to thank the lawmakers who supported your right to self-defense.
