Virginia Legislative Session Heavy On Pro-Gun Wins

posted on March 16, 2016

Virginia’s legislative session has come to an end, with passage of historic legislation positive toward the states’ law-abiding gun owners.

On Feb. 26, legislation was signed into law to address the attorney general’s arbitrary cancellation of concealed-carry reciprocity agreements with 25 states. The measures, sponsored by Republican Del. Michael Webert and Republican state Sen. Bryce Reeves, will recognize all valid out-of-state concealed-carry permits. 

Last week, the governor’s proposed amendments for Senate Bill 626 and House Bill 766 were rejected and the bills were sent back to the governor’s desk for his final consideration. Gov. McAuliffe’s recommendations would have completely negated the intended purpose of the bills. Lastly, House Bill 1096 also heads to the governor’s desk for consideration. It would prohibit any state entity from adopting or enforcing any rule, regulation, policy, or administrative action governing the purchase, possession, transfer, ownership, carrying, storage, or transporting of firearms, ammunition, or components or combinations thereof unless expressly authorized by statute.
