    Senate Committee Defeats Attack on Virginia’s Preemption Laws!



    Tuesday, January 22, 2008




    Please Contact Members of the Committee and Thank Them for Voting NO!

    On Tuesday, January 22, three anti-gun proposals that targeted Virginia’s commonsense firearms preemption statute failed to make it out of the Senate Local Government Committee, effectively stopping all three bills before they had a chance to be voted on by the full Senate.

    Senate Bill 32 sponsored by Senator Mamie Locke (D-2), would have allowed localities to prohibit possession of firearms in public libraries. Senate Bill 33, also sponsored by Senator Locke, would have allowed localities to prohibit possession of firearms at outdoor events, such as fairs and carnivals. Senate Bill 300, introduced by Senator Mary Margaret Whipple (D-31), which would have authorized any locality to ban the possession of firearms in government buildings.

    Please call or email the following members of the Senate Local Government Committee who voted “NO” and thank them for responsibly protecting the Commonwealth’s preemption statute and voting against SB32, SB33, and SB300.

    Quit teasing the thoughtless, self-important, psuedo-sophisticated effetes.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
