Virginia A.G. Playing Politics With Safety

posted on December 24, 2015

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring’s announcement yesterday that he is severing concealed-carry reciprocity agreements with 25 other states is simply political pandering at the expense of the safety of law-abiding citizens, according to top NRA officials.

“Plain and simple, Mark Herring is putting politics above public safety,” said Chris Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “This decision is both dangerous and shameful. The Attorney General knows that permit holders are among the safest groups of citizens in the Commonwealth and the country. At a time when people are scared and desperately need the ability to defend themselves, Herring has chosen the path of making self-defense harder.”

As of Feb. 1, 2016, concealed-carry permits from the following states will no longer be recognized in Virginia: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
