Three important pro-gun bills that need your support will be taken up tomorrow before the Virginia House Militia, Police and Public Safety Subcommittee #1 at 4:00 P.M. in the 8th Floor West Conference Room of the General Assembly Building. It is critical that you use the information provided below to contact members of the House Militia, Police and Public Safety Subcommittee #1 immediately and urge them to SUPPORT the following pro-gun bills:
- Senate Bill 948: Sponsored by pro-gun Senator Richard Stuart (R-28), SB 948 would prohibit the sharing of information on concealed handgun permit holders with law enforcement in states that do not have reciprocity agreements with Virginia. This prohibits states hostile to gun ownership from going on fishing expeditions and using this information as an excuse to harass law-abiding Virginia permit holders while they are traveling out of state.
- Senate Bill 1137: Sponsored by pro-gun Senator Tom Garrett (R-22), SB 1137 would prohibit local ordinances that ban concealed carry permit holders from transporting a loaded rifle or shotgun, eliminating a patchwork of inconsistent laws that are unnecessarily confusing for law-abiding citizens.
- Senate Bill 1191: Sponsored by Senator Tommy Norment (R-3), SB 1191 would amend the felony charge for having a firearm on school property to require that the person must have knowingly possessed the firearm. Inadvertent violations should not result in a felony.
Please contact members of the House Militia, Police and Public Safety Subcommittee #1 and tell them to vote "yes" on SB 948, SB 1137 and SB 1191. If you can, please also consider attending this hearing in support of your gun rights.
