I'm not familiar with law but lets say they implement the high capacity mag ban. Does that work retroactive or only for all future sales?
Will I still be able to use my 30 rounds on a range or not?

Thank you for taking your time to write all of this!

You'd have to read the wording of the Bill to find the answer to that question.

As TeflonDon said you would need to read the bill. MOST (again) most bills like this 'grandfather' mags in but makes it illegal to sell them to anyone else... the California law that goes into effect in July does not grandfather them in, they must be sold or destroyed or given to LE

You have it just a bit wrong on FL: H6001 would make it illegal to carry a firearm anywhere in an airport

It's already illegal to carry a concealed weapon in an airport in FL (anywhere in the airport) This bill revises that to make illegal only in the secure areas of the airport, it would make it legal anywhere else.

Thank you for the proposed updates.
Reading NY's musta made your head hurt.
Thank you for caring!

We 'read' over 200 bills a week (sometimes more) and yes after a while your head just throbs, especially in anti-gun states.

We try to do the best we can, every once in a while we make a mistake but again we do the best we can because this anti-gun BULLSH*T has GOT to stop!

Our goal is to make anyone that cares about our rights more involved and if we get one more person involved we count that as a win.

H5156 would require a license to carry a stun gun with the exact same restrictions as a license to carry a firearm

I'm so sick of fighting this high cap mag bill EVERY YEAR. It keeps on getting shelved and comes back again and again and again. Not sure what to think of the stun gun bill. Right now, stun guns are completely illegal. I suppose requiring a license beats not being able to have one at all. I didn't check out the language of these bills yet though.

I hope everyone knows that if you are interested in Virginia legislation, a great thing to do is bookmark:

VCDL's 2017 Legislation Tracking Tool

This shows every bill that has anything to do with guns in VA that has been introduced in the 2017 legislative session. It is organized by VCDL's four categories, ranging from "Strongly Support" down to "Strongly Oppose." It gives the text of the bill, who is sponsoring it and the latest status of the bill. If it is in committee, it also has hot buttons that allow you to email the whole committee who is considering it.

There are actually more bills than have been listed above. The year is young, but so far, the VCDL is batting 1000. All the negative bills the VCDL opposes that have come up for a vote have been killed and all the positive bills have moved forward. Of course, VA has a double-edged sword. On one hand, it is almost impossible for the anti-gunners to get a bill passed in our legislature, because it is Republican controlled and there are even a few pro-gun Democrats. Anti-gun bills are introduced by legislators from commie counties to give them bragging rights for their constituents. If they don't die on their own, the VCDL puts a lot of pressure on legislators to make sure these bills die before they get passed.

On the other hand, it is almost impossible to get a pro-gun bill signed by the governor. But he can't run again in November and there are some strong pro-gun Republicans running against him. If we can get one of them in, next year will be a big year for gun rights in VA. This year, we can at least hold the line.

As TeflonDon said you would need to read the bill. MOST (again) most bills like this 'grandfather' mags in but makes it illegal to sell them to anyone else... the California law that goes into effect in July does not grandfather them in, they must be sold or destroyed or given to LE
They started out grandfathered, now they have decided to kill grandpa! Beware of these laws they start out with banning future sales to banning altogether.
