    Post Crossover day action needed

    Crossover day lull has come and gone.

    Time for Virginia Pro-RKBA members to get busy.

    ***********************************************
    1. Legislative Update
    ***********************************************

    At least two pro-gun bills are going to be heard next week. If other
    bills come up, I will advise. Both bills are in the Senate Committee
    on Local Government:

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

    HB 109, Delegate Cole, repeals the authorization for counties to tax
    handguns and collect purchaser information - STRONGLY SUPPORT

    The committee meets at 2 PM on Tuesday, February 23rd in Senate Room B.


    ***********************************************
    2. Legislative ACTION ITEMS
    ***********************************************

    Here are four bills that we need to urge our Senators to support.
    Just click on the link below each one to send a pre-written, but
    editable, message to YOUR Senator automatically.

    HB 79, Delegate Ware, prohibits Circuit Courts from disseminating CHP
    application information:

    whether you personally benefit or not - we will continue to work to
    improve the law in the future):

    Va Restaurant ban repeal is finally within sight

    See action link below, if you live in Virginia.

    From a VA-ALERT.

    Good news from the House Militia, Police and Public Safety
    subcommittee #1 tonight!

    1. SB 334, Senator Hanger, repeals the restaurant ban, passed out of
    subcommittee UNCHANGED 4 to 0! This is exactly what we hoped it would
    do. We need to make sure this bill passes the House Floor UNCHANGED
    and, if it does, the restaurant ban repeal will head to the Governor's
    desk! See ACTION ITEM below.

    2. SB 408, Senator Vogel, allows non-CHP holders to have a loaded gun
    in a locked container or compartment in a vehicle or boat, passed
    UNCHANGED out of subcommittee by 3 to 1! Like SB 334, above, if it
    passes the House UNCHANGED, it will head to the Governor's desk for
    signing.

    3. SB 501, Senator Lucas, makes it so that out-of-state DUIs count
    against someone getting a CHP for 3 years, same as an in-state DUI.
    Because some states simply don't have DUI laws similar to Virginia,
    the subcommittee sent the bill to the House Courts of Justice to see
    if any language could be worked out.

    4. SB 580, Senator Marsden, which makes it a Class 1 misdemeanor for
    someone under the age of 18 to have an airsoft gun that can fire a
    projectile at over 250 feet-per-second on K-12 school property, DIED
    because no one would second a motion to pass the bill!

    Thanks for killing this bill goes to EM Mike Stollenwerk, as he found
    out late today that Fairfax County, which Marsden represents, ALREADY
    has an ordinance that makes carrying an air gun on K-12 school
    property a Class 3 misdemeanor (kudos to Mike for that discovery). I
    presented that evidence to the subcommittee and said that SB 580
    wasn't needed.

    The subcommittee agreed.

    You would think that Senator Marsden would be glad to hear that
    Fairfax County already had an ordinance in place (as opposed to having
    to wait until July 1 for a change to Virginia law to take effect), but
    he didn't seem happy when his bill got tanked.

    Marsden had supported the restaurant ban repeal as a Delegate and had
    led many to believe he would be a moderate on guns and would support
    the restaurant ban repeal if he became a Senator. But on the Senate
    Floor two weeks ago, he voted against the repeal (and all the other
    pro-self-defense bills for that matter), arguing that because the
    Senate had just passed a bill allowing guns in locked compartments and
    containers in vehicles (SB 408), the restaurant ban repeal was no
    longer needed.

    Tonight, in a form of poetic justice, VCDL argued that because Fairfax
    County had that air gun ordinance, it was Senator Marsden's SB 580
    that wasn't needed.

    In the end, the restaurant ban repeal passed the Floor of the Senate
    without Marsden's support, but Marsden's SB 580 wasn't so lucky in the
    House.

    --

    ACTION ITEM

    Between Lobby Day and all of you sending emails when needed, Virginia
    gun owners are a force to be reckoned with! Let's keep that forward
    momentum.

    We need to let the House know that we want Senator Hanger's restaurant
    ban repeal, SB 334, and Senator Vogel's handgun in locked compartments
    and containers in vehicles, SB 408, to both pass the House UNCHANGED.

    That is important, because if either are changed, then there is
    another chance that the Senate's anti-gun leadership could kill the
    changed bills.

    A win on the restaurant ban repeal is finally within sight - we must
    NOT drop the ball now!

    And now for the Senate -- HB 854, Delegate Morefield's "Castle Doctrine" bill is up.

    From a VA-ALERT.

    It is time to tell your Senator to support HB 69, Delegate Carrico's
    bill to protect sales of firearms made in Virginia and sold in
    Virginia from federal intrusion, and HB 854, Delegate Morefield's
    "Castle Doctrine" bill.
