From VCDL. Then I’m off to vote for Fred Thompson in the Primary.
Big win for gun owners!
The Senate voted today, 24 to 15, to pass SB 476, Senator Hanger’s restaurant ban repeal!
Special thanks to Senator Hanger and Cuccinelli!
B 436, Delegate Jackson Miller, allows police officers to arrest on a class 1 or class 2 misdemeanor AT WILL has passed the House and is on its way to the Senate. Not an anti-gun bill, but one that can have negative effects for gun owners, and opposed by VCDL accordingly.
The following bills are DEAD due to not being heard by a committee or by being deferred:
PRO-GUN bills: 🙁
HB 109, Delegate Cole, state agency preemption
HB 210, Delegate Cole, allows private K-12 schools and child day centers to hire armed security officers
HB 212, Delegate Cole, repeals a law that allows localities to keep a record of handguns

HB 1544, Delegate Gilbert, restaurant ban repeal (Senate equivalent is still alive)
SB 332, Senator Cuccinelli, protects CHP list (still alive in a House bill)
ANTI-GUN bills: 😉
HB 281, Delegate Toscano, would have prevented someone with a protective order from having a gun in their own home
HB 435, Delegate Jackson Miller, would have required a person to ID to a police officer (not really anti-gun, but opposed because of likely negative effect on gun owners)
HB 588, Delegate Marsden, puts air guns under concealed weapons law
HB 608, Delgate Eisenberg, would have prevented someone with a protective order from having a gun in their own home
