    Two bills that VCDL opposed are now dead

    More from a VA-ALERT.

    VA-ALERT is a project of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc.

    [First person singular pronouns (I, my, mine, etc) reference Philip Van Cleave, President VCDL]


    Two bills that VCDL opposed are now dead:

    HB 183, Del. Morrissey, allowed for automatic expungements of criminal
    records, but excluded misdemeanor domestic violence, which
    legitimatizes a bad federal law that disarms a person for life for a
    minor crime. The Courts of Justice Criminal subcommittee in the House
    voted to pass the bill by indefinitely (PBI).

    -

    SB 268, Senator Whipple, allowed localities to pass ordinances banning
    guns on their property. It died by a 6 to 9 vote in the Senate Local
    Government committee yesterday.

    Voting pro-gun:

    Quayle, Martin, Hanger, Reynolds, Ruff, Obenshain, Herring, Smith,
    Stuart

    Voting anti-gun:

    Lucas, Marsh, Ticer, Puller, Locke, Marsden

    The Chief of Police for Falls Church and a captain from ***Fairfax
    PD*** spoke in favor of the bill! I have a call into a contact at FFX
    PD to see what that was all about.

    One bill is being fixed:

    HB 84, introduced by Delegate Bob Marshall, wasn't on our radar, but
    is now after Delegate Jackson Miller said in the House Courts of
    Justice Criminal subcommittee that the bill could inadvertently leave
    Virginia gun dealers and manufacturers open to mischief by people like
    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

    Delegate Marshall, who clearly had no intention of that potential
    problem, agreed to work on the bill and return to the committee with a
    corrected version.

    Thanks for Delegate Jackson Miller for the catch and Delegate Marshall
    for hopefully fixing the problem.

    HB 681, Jackson Miller, passed out of the House Courts of Justice
    Criminal subcommittee by a vote of 6 to 1. The bill allows a police
    officer full discretion to arrest for a class 1 or 2 misdemeanor
    instead of just writing a summons and letting the person go (with 7
    exceptions in current law). One problem was fixed in subcommittee (a
    part that actually took discretion away from an officer and *required*
    him to arrest somebody if they wouldn't stop what they were doing).
    It was pointed out that in subcommittee that the bill doesn't apply to
    misdemeanor traffic violations (as covered under another code section).

    -

    SB 331, Senator Stuart, was stricken by Senator Stuart, as it was
    almost a duplicate of his other bill, SB 89 (next).

    -

    SB 89, Senator Stuart, which requires that the Commonwealth Attorney
    be notified of any restoration of rights in his jurisdiction and have
    the power to have input on such restoration, passed the Senate
    unanimously and heads to the House.

    -

    This afternoon two Castle Doctrine bills will be heard in the House
    Courts of Justice Criminal subcommittee:

    HB 251, Delegate Merricks
    HB 854, Delegate Morefield

    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.
