    Exclamation Virginia Members: Fire Mission Re: GUN BILLS TO BE HEARD TOMORROW, JANUARY 26!

    From a VA-ALERT.

    Tomorrow, Thursday, January 26, at 5 PM in the 4th Floor West Conference Room in the General Assembly, the House Militia, Police, and Public Safety subcommittee #1 is going to hear several gun bills and I will be there to speak on them. If you can make it to the committee hearing to show support (and put on a "Guns Save Lives" sticker), that would be great!

    HB 20, Delegate Wilt, protects the right of citizens to carry and transport firearms during a declared emergency (VCDL Strongly Supports)
    HB 22, Delegate Cole, requires localities to try to sell guns they are in possession of instead of just destroying them (VCDL Strongly Supports)
    HB 26, Delegate Cole, provides a $25 civil fine for failure to produce a CHP if demanded by a law enforcement officer (VCDL Strongly Supports)
    HB 364, Delegate McClellan, perennial "gun show loophole" bill (VCDL Strongly Opposes)
    HB 375, Delegate Pogge, allows local government employees to be able to store their guns in their personal vehicles while at work (VCDL Strongly Supports)
    HB 458, Delegate BaCote, allows localities to ban guns in libraries (VCDL Strongly Opposes)
    HB 940, Delegate Lingamfelter, repeals Virginia's One Handgun a Month law (VCDL Strongly Supports)
