    Thumbs up Virginia: Governor McDonnell Signs Concealed Carry Confidentiality Bill

    Earlier today, Governor McDonnell signed Sen. Mark Obenshain's (and VCDL supported) Concealed Carry Confidentiality bill (SB 1335) into law.

    Now that SB 1335 has been signed, law-abiding Virginians will no longer risk having their private information disclosed simply because they choose to exercise a constitutional right.


    We all saw what happened when a New York newspaper published an interactive map of concealed carry permit-holders on their website: criminals used it to their advantage and law-abiding gun owners were harassed.

    But what’s even more disturbing (and what happened here in Virginia when the Roanoke Times published a link to the data) is that these lists sometimes disclose the new addresses of victims of domestic violence, witnesses in crimes and others who have a very good reason
    to not want and have gone to some effort and expense to keep their contact information in public view.

    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.

    Great. Thanks for the post.
    Ten Bears: It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    That's a great thing for Virginia CC'ers. And yes, there are many reasons why these records should be kept private, not the least of which is for the safety of the permit holders.
