    Sounds like great bills...good luck. OK also has a bill hitting the floor to allow carry at universities. Last year it failed under a Democrat Congress...this year, the Republicans are in charge and majority.

    I hope all of us have written letters and emails, signed all petitions, and had our voice heard. Now it is up to the legislators we put in office to follow our wishes, or feel our rath later.

    Excellent bills, all 3 of them! I hope these pass with a strong majority to give VA residents the ability to protect themselves in every possible situation. The K-12 school bill surprises me quite a bit, it would be a precedent for CC as far as I know.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down & lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, & may posterity forget you were countrymen.
