Today, Monday, January 30th the Virginia Senate will vote on a number of bills affecting our Second Amendment rights. Please contact your State Senators today and ask them to OPPOSE all gun control bills.
As previously reported, the following anti-gun bills sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee passed the committee last week allowing them to advance to the Senate for a floor vote today!
Senate Bill 918 bans selling or carrying many firearms and magazines that law-abiding citizens commonly own for legitimate purposes, such as self-defense, competition, and recreation, with no exemption for carry permit holders.
Senate Bill 1067 expands Virginia’s “red flag” gun confiscation scheme.
Senate Bill 1139 requires anyone with firearms in the same residence as a minor under 18 years of age, to store them unloaded in locked containers, and store ammunition in separate locked containers. Loaded firearms may only be stored in “biometric storage device[s].” There is an exemption for firearms carried on or about the person.
Senate Bill 1181 essentially ends the centuries-old practice of manufacturing firearms for personal use by restricting certain unregulated components commonly used by hobbyists to make their own firearms far beyond what federal law requires.
Senate Bill 1382 bans many commonly-owned firearms and magazines. Owners of banned firearms and magazines at least 21 years of age may continue to keep them, but they cannot sell them. Also, 1382 discriminates against young adults aged 18-20 by prohibiting them from purchasing many types of commonly-owned firearms.
Again, please contact your State Senator today and ask them to OPPOSE all gun control bills. Also, please forward this to your family, friends, and Second Amendment Supporters so they may contact their Senator, as well.
