    Exclamation Things are heating up in Richmond -- 23 gun bills hearings, tomorrow

    As always this time of year (because of the short legislative session) things are heating up in Richmond.

    If you can join Philip and the others, please do so -- even if you are not a VCDL member.

    Unfortunately, I (dave) have a very important appointment with the heart doctor, or I'd be there.

    Tomorrow, Thursday, January 28th, the Militia, Police and Public
    Safety subcommittee #1 is going to hear 23 gun bills. If you can make
    it, come to show your support for VCDL's position on these bills.

    The meeting is at the General Assembly building (SE corner of 9th and
    Broad streets in Richmond), 4th Floor West conference room at 5 PM. I
    will have GSL stickers and should be there by 4:30 or so.

    Here are the bills:

    HB 8, Carrico, allows CHPs to be renewed by mail. STRONGLY SUPPORT

    HB 26, Wright, clarifies that Circuit Court Clerk can only ask for
    certain information from CHP applicants and nothing more. STRONGLY
    SUPPORT

    HB 52, Cole, sets the penalty for not having your CHP with you when
    carrying concealed to a $25 civil penalty (not a crime), and that
    penalty can be waived by the Court upon presentation of your CHP.
    SUPPORT

    HB 79, Lee Ware, block Circuit Court Clerks from giving our CHP
    information except to police for legitimate police purposes. It will

    STRONGLY SUPPORT

    HB 108, Cole, requires localities to auction off guns purchased in a
    "buy-up". STRONGLY SUPPORT

    of handgun sales. STRONGLY SUPPORT

    HB 152, O'Bannon, lets electronic security employees carry concealed
    with a CHP when working. STRONGLY SUPPORT

    HB 171, Pogge, allows a person to have a firearm in their locked
    vehicle while on private property, including the parking lot of a
    person's employer. The bill also legally immunizes the employer from
    the misuse of such a firearm. STRONGLY SUPPORT

    boarding members. NEUTRAL

    HB 684, Jackson Miller, makes carrying a butterfly knife concealed
    illegal. OPPOSE

    HB 870, Cline, removes the option for a locality for fingerprint new
    CHP applicants. STRONGLY SUPPORT

    HB 871, Cline, clarifies that a person has the right to an ore tenus
    hearing under certain circumstances if the CHP is denied. STRONGLY
    SUPPORT

    HB 879, BaCote, allows firearms to be banned in a library by local
    ordinance. STRONGLY OPPOSE

    HB 885, Athey, allows a person to have a concealed handgun in a
    private car or boat if secured in a container or compartment.

    citizenship for purchase of an "assault firearm." STRONGLY SUPPORT

    carry anywhere they go. NEUTRAL

    HB 1151, Iaquinto, makes carrying a butterfly knife concealed

    qualify to carry concealed without a CHP. NEUTRAL

    HB 1257, P.J. Miller, allows a retired law-enforcement officer to

    officers better) NEUTRAL

    Addendum:

    Tomorrow's meeting place for the Militia, Police and Public Safety
    subcommittee #1, which is hearing those 23 gun bills, is shown as
    being in the 4th Floor West conference room on the subcommittee's web
    page, BUT the actual agenda shows it to be in the 5th Floor West
    conference room. :-(

    I suggest going to the 5th Floor first, and if the meeting is not
    there, go down to the 4th Floor.

    BTY -- I'll be out of the loop for a few days.

    Other VCDL members and those who keep up to date on issues in Richmond, please keep the folk here informed. dave

    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.
