First an URGENT ACTION ITEM:

Delegate Carrico's HB 371, which put's teeth in Virginia's preemption
laws, is going to be heard on Thursday! No more Chet Szymecki-type
arrests!

HB 371 will be heard in the House Militia, Police and Public Safety
subcommittee #2 at 7:30 AM (ugh!).

***We need to get emails flowing NOW!***

GOOD NEWS TODAY!

Three anti-gun bills were KILLED in the Senate today. Joel Partridge
(NRA), Roy B. Scherer, and I spoke against these bills. All of the
bills died by a 10 to 5 vote!

SB 32, Senator Locke, bans guns in libraries

SB 33, Senator Locke, bans guns at festivals and fairs (the Chet
Szymecki bill)

SB 300, Senator Whipple, bans guns in government buildings

The following Senators stood up for your rights and should be thanked:

Quayle, Martin, Hanger, Reynolds, Ruff, Cuccinelli, Obenshain,
Herring, Smith, Stuart

The following Senators voted anti-gun:

Lucas, Marsh, Ticer, Puller, Locke

CORRECTION

In yesterday's Lobby Day wrap up, I gave the wrong bill number for
Senator Marsh's gun show bill. It should be be SB 109.

If you haven't yet sent an email to kill SB 109, do so now:

SB 109 will be voted on tomorrow around 2 PM in the Senate Courts of
Justice committee. Cross your fingers that Senator Marsh's gun show
bill is killed.
