It isn't all that I, Dave Hicks, would want. But it's a positive compromise -- such as I keep hearing that the antis want.Bob Marshall's HB 1557 is to be heard by the Governor's Task Force on Thursday, January 24, at 4 PM in the East Reading Room of the Patrick Henry Building.
Let's send an email to some of the key members of the Task Force:

FYI from VCDL's 2013 Legislation Tracking Tool
School boards; employee firearms training. Requires every school board in the Commonwealth to designate at least one qualified person for every school in the district who, upon application with the school board, may carry a concealed handgun on school property. The bill requires all designated persons, including certain school division employees, certain school volunteers who carry valid concealed handgun permits, and certain retired law-enforcement officers, to be certified and trained by the Virginia Center for School Safety or the National Rifle Association in the storage, use, and handling of a concealed handgun. The bill also outlines the training requirements for designated persons as designed by the Department of Criminal Justice Services.
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.
