Virginia: Bipartisan Legislation Continues to Advance Through the General Assembly

Important bipartisan legislation passed through committee today in the General Assembly.  As previously reported, progress was made between government leaders in Virginia to postpone the revocation of reciprocity agreements until March 1, and to further the legislation outlined below:

Senate Bill 610 and House Bill 1163, sponsored by state Senator Bryce Reeves (R-17) and Delegate Michael Webert (R-18), would provide reciprocity for all states with a concealed carry permitting process.  Today, SB 610 was passed out of the House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety and now goes to the House floor to await consideration.  HB 1163 will be heard next week in the Senate Committee for Courts of Justice.

Additionally, House Bill 1386 and Senate Bill 715, sponsored by Delegate Scott Lingamfelter (R-31) and state Senator John Edwards (D-21), will require the Virginia State Police to attend gun shows in the Commonwealth and run voluntary background checks for private transfers between attendees.  An important safeguard of these voluntary background checks is they will provide civil liability protection for sellers.  HB 1386 will be heard next week in the Senate Committee for Courts of Justice.  SB 715 was passed out of the Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety and now goes to the House floor to await consideration.

Also, Senate Bill 49, sponsored by state Senator Janet Howell (D-32), was passed out of the House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety and now goes to the House floor to await consideration.  SB 49, along with its companion bill, House Bill 1391, sponsored by Delegate Kathleen Murphy (D-34), would make it unlawful for any person who is subject to a domestic violence permanent protective order to possess any firearm while the order is in effect.  HB 1391 will be heard next week in the Senate Committee for Courts of Justice.

Your NRA-ILA is closely monitoring all legislation with respect to this bipartisan deal and will continue to keep you updated as these bills advance through the General Assembly.
