    Spotsylvania County & Roanoke, Urgent Action Item

    from VCDL:

    URGENT ACTION ITEM!

    Those of you who live in Spotsylvania County and Roanoke we need you
    to contact your Senators on Monday morning (February 2)!

    Those of you who are constituents of Senator Houck, give him a call on
    Monday morning before 11:30 AM and POLITELY urge him to vote AGAINST
    Senator Marsh's gun show bill, SB 1257.

    Senator Houck's phone number is: 804-698-7517

    Those of you who are constituents of Senator Edwards, give him a call
    on Monday morning before 11:30 AM and POLITELY urge him to vote
    AGAINST Senator Marsh's gun show bill, SB 1257.

    Senator Edwards's phone number is: 804-698-7521

    IMPORTANT NOTE: We have NO information that either Senator Houck or
    Senator Edwards is thinking of voting wrong. However, their vote is
    going to be critical and we need to make sure that they hear from as
    many constituents as possible.

    Let's roll Spotsylvania and Roanoke!

    Hurt, Poindexter oppose gun-show loophole bill
    By ELIZABETH HYMAN/Capital News Service
    Sunday, February 1, 2009 1:05 PM EST

    RICHMOND -- A bill that would require people to undergo criminal
    background checks before purchasing a firearm at a gun show faces
    opposition in both the Senate and the House of Delegates.

    The Committee for Courts of Justice passed the bill, SB1257 last
    Monday, with a narrow vote of 8-7.

    Sen. Robert Hurt, R-Chatham voted against the bill and said he plans
    to vote against it again when it reaches the full Senate.

    He said that a sale between two private citizens at a gun show is no
    different than any other transaction.

    "I just don't think the government should be in the business of
    regulating sales of firearms between two private individuals," Hurt
    said.

    The senator also said that he believes the firm supporters of the bill
    would like to have control over all private firearm sales.

    Del. Charles D. Poindexter, R-Glade Hill, has similar opinions. He
    said that this could be the first step in regulating firearm sales
    between private citizens.

    "Where would it stop?" he said.

    Another one of Hurt's views on the bill is that it is impossible to
    control every person's actions, saying that the bill's supporters are
    relating it back to the Virginia Tech shooting.

    "I try to be reasonable about these things, and look at the purpose,"
    Hurt said. "The purpose of this bill has absolutely nothing to do with
    what happened at Virginia Tech."

    He said that the recent murder at Virginia Tech, which involved a
    kitchen knife, shows how the bill and the shooting are unrelated; the
    bill could not have prevented last week's murder.

    The bill refers to a "gun show loophole," because this would not be
    affecting sales made in other locations.

    Poindexter said he thought there was no loophole, "because there's no
    such thing as an unlicensed dealer."

    Thank you for the notice jowgafist.

    I live in Spotsylvania and called Sen. Houck's office this morning and left the 'No on SB1257' message with his office manager.
