Virginia: Important Self-Defense Bills Head to the Governor

Multiple self-defense bills are heading to the Governor’s desk and awaiting action.  It is imperative that you contact Governor Terry McAuliffe and respectfully ask him to sign these important bills into law!  

Senate Bill 1299 and Senate Bill 1300, sponsored by state Senator Jill Holtzman Vogel and Delegate Todd Gilbert (R-15), would allow any person who is 21 or older, not prohibited from purchasing, possessing, or transporting a firearm and who are currently protected by an unexpired protective order to carry a concealed handgun for 45 days after the protective order was issued.  This would provide time for the victim to apply for their concealed carry permit.  SB 1300 would also provide funding for reimbursement of training expenses as well as information for those individuals seeking training under the protection of a protective order.

Once again, please contact Governor Terry McAuliffe at 804-786-2211 and urge him to sign these important self-defense bills
