    VA Leg working on Veto Override

    VIRGINIANS...Time to get your letters and calls out if you haven't already!
    Legislature may put it to a vote tomorrow. VA Leg working on Veto Override of Tim "The BANE" Kaine's veto's of SB 1035 and SB 1528.

    On Wednesday, April 8 the Virgina legislature will meet to see which of
    Gov. Tim Kaine's vetos they will overrride.

    The two bills that GOA is most concerned with are the following:

    * SB 1035, by Sen. Hanger, would restore the ability of permit holders
    to carry in restaurants that happen to serve alcohol, as long as the
    permit holder does not drink. It should be noted that for many years
    prior to 1995, there was no such ban in place -- and no problems arose.
    Anti-gun restaurant owners would still have their private property
    rights protected, as the bill allows for posting of signs if a
    particular restaurant does not wish to allow concealed carry.

    * SB 1528, by pro-gun champion Sen. Cuccinelli, would make it acceptable
    for the training and/or safety requirements of Virginia's concealed
    carry law to be made available online. Kaine claims that the bill would
    lead to fraud as applicants get other people to take their tests for
    them... except that there is no written test required! Current law
    states that an applicant must only show his familiarity with firearms by
    "completing" any one of several different types of "safety or training
    course or class." Cuccinelli's bill would simply make it easier for
    applicants to obtain those materials.

    If you have not as yet contacted your state delegate and state senator
    about these two bills, please take a moment to do so TODAY. Note that
    since an override vote has to pass both chambers of the legislature in
    order to be successful, it is imperative that you contact BOTH your
    state senator and your state delegate.

    If you have already contacted them previously, by all means, please do
    so again.


    ACTION: Please use the pre-written letter below to contact both your
    state delegate and your state senator.

    Step 1: Plug your address in at
    Welcome to the Virginia General Assembly - Who's My Legislator? and click "Lookup"

    Step 2: On the results page, click "Send a message to your Delegate and
    Senator" near the bottom

    Step 3: Copy and paste the pre-written letter below into the "Message"
    box and click "Send Your Message"


    ----- Pre-written letter -----

    As a constituent and a law-abiding gun owner, I am writing to urge you
    to override Gov. Kaine's veto of two important pro-gun bills that
    recently passed the legislature.

    SB 1035 (Hanger) would restore the ability of permit holders to carry in
    restaurants that happen to serve alcohol, as long as the permit holder
    does not drink. It should be noted that for many years prior to 1995,
    there was no such ban in place -- and no problems arose. Anti-gun
    restaurant owners would still have their private property rights
    protected, as the bill allows for posting of signs if a particular
    restaurant does not wish to allow concealed carry.

    SB 1528 (Cuccinelli) would make it acceptable for the training and/or
    safety requirements of Virginia's concealed carry law to be made
    available online. Gov. Kaine claims that the bill would lead to fraud as
    applicants get other people to take their tests for them... except that
    there is no written test required! Current law states that an applicant
    must only show his familiarity with firearms by "completing" any one of
    several different types of "safety or training course or class." Sen.
    Cuccinelli's bill would simply make it easier for applicants to obtain
    those materials.

    Please support my Second Amendment rights by voting to override the
    governor's veto of these two bills.

    Are Virginians surfs or citizens? We will soon know.
