On Monday the Senate Courts of Justice revoted on bills it had taken up last Wednesday due to a snafu. None of those bills changed status due to the revote.
Two additional pro-gun bills were heard and voted on:
SB 429, Senator Ruff, streamlines the Virginia form when purchasing a handgun. Passed out of committee by a 14 to 1 vote.
SB 563, Senator Ruff, miscellaneous clean up to concealed weapons code. Passed out of committee by a 11 to 4 vote.
Today, SB 663, Senator Smith, allows a CHP to be used as an ID when voting. Passed out of the Senate Privileges and Elections committee by a 14 to 1 margin.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, February 1, after the Senate goes into recess for the day, the Senate Courts of Justice is going to consider both of Senator McEachin's anti-gun bills. I'll be there to speak against them:
SB 379, Senator McEachin, makes private firearm sales illegal.
SB 648, Senator McEachin, adds yet another penalty to a gun owner who is in possession of a gun while intoxicated.

I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
