Virginia: Senate Judiciary Hearing Gun Bills Monday

On Monday, the Senate Committee on Judiciary will hear a number of bills affecting our Second Amendment rights. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT pro-gun bills and OPPOSE any new gun control.

Pro-Gun Bills

Senate Bill 805 prevents localities from passing their own restrictions on lawful carry, requires localities to sell any firearms they receive in so-called “gun buyback” events to licensed dealers, and prohibits localities from filing lawsuits against the firearm industry for lawful activities

Senate Bill 1236 prevents localities from passing their own restrictions on lawful carry.

Senate Bill 1488 restores due process protections in Virginia by repealing the so-called “red flag” scheme that allows the seizure of an individual’s firearms on baseless accusations without a hearing or other opportunity for the person to be heard in court.

Anti-Gun Bills

Senate Bill 909 makes it more difficult for individuals prohibited from possessing firearms to relinquish them by imposing a requirement that recipients of such firearms must be at least 21 years of age and cannot reside with the prohibited person.

Senate Bill 918 bans selling or carrying many firearms and magazines that law-abiding citizens commonly own for legitimate purposes, such as self-defense, competition, and recreation, with no exemption for carry permit holders.

Senate Bill 1067 expands Virginia’s “red flag” gun confiscation scheme.

Senate Bill 1139 requires anyone with firearms in the same residence as a minor under 18 years of age, to store them unloaded in locked containers, and store ammunition in separate locked containers. Loaded firearms may only be stored in “biometric storage device[s].” There is an exemption for firearms carried on or about the person.

Senate Bill 1167 aims to undermine the PLCAA and subject licensed firearm manufacturers and sellers to frivolous lawsuits brought to recover damages for the criminal misuse of their products.

Senate Bill 1181 essentially ends the centuries-old practice of manufacturing firearms for personal use by restricting certain unregulated components commonly used by hobbyists to make their own firearms far beyond what federal law requires.

Senate Bill 1192 bans carrying many commonly-owned firearms, with no exemption for carry permit holders.

Senate Bill 1283 discriminates against young adults aged 18-20 by prohibiting them from purchasing many types of commonly-owned firearms.

Senate Bill 1382 bans many commonly-owned firearms and magazines. Owners of banned firearms and magazines at least 21 years of age may continue to keep them, but they cannot sell them.

Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT pro-gun bills and OPPOSE any new gun control.
