NRA-ILA Fighting Virginia Reciprocity Decision

posted on December 31, 2015

With Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring’s recent decision to cut off Right-to-Carry reciprocity agreements with 25 states, NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action is already moving to find a remedy for the problems that this decision is causing for law-abiding gun owners.

NRA-ILA is currently working on legislation for the 2016 Virginia session to address the reciprocity issue. This legislation will require Virginia to recognize valid permits or licenses from every other state. Due to NRA’s past efforts, 18 states already have such a “total recognition” law. The Virginia legislation would further require the attorney general to enter into a reciprocity agreement with any state that requires an agreement in order to recognize Virginia concealed handgun permits.
