    VCDL's Gun Dealer Legal Defense Fund -- help fight Mayor Bloomberg's
    scheme to cripple Virginia firearms dealers. See:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    VCDL's meeting schedule: http://www.vcdl.org/meetings.html
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------


    I attended two subcommittee meetings today (Thursday). This morning
    Delegate Carrico's bill to put teeth into Virginia's firearms
    preemption laws, HB 371, was reported from the Militia, Police and
    Public Safety subcommittee #2!

    *****The subcommittee asked that a representative from NORFOLK come to
    the full committee hearing tomorrow as the committee wants to ask
    Norfolk about what happened to Chet Szymecki!!!! *******

    This evening, I attended the Militia, Police and Public Safety
    subcommittee #1.

    The anti-gun bills that VCDL opposed were all KILLED:

    HB 608, Delegate Eisenberg, disarms someone in their own home if they
    have a protective order against them
    HB 281, Delegate Toscano, disarms someone in their own home if they
    have a protective order against them
    HB 814, Delegate Ward, required a person being considered for a
    protective order to be asked about gun ownership
    HB 697, Delegate BaCote, bans guns in libraries
    HB 899, Delegate Jim Scott, microstamping
    HB 810, Delegate Ward, machine gun re-registration if someone moves.
    HB 169, Delegate Albo, add box cutters to list of concealed weapons
    *** this bill was withdrawn by Delegate Albo ***
    HB 588, Delegate Marsden, adds BB guns to concealed weapons list ***
    this bill will be sent to a study ***

    The pro-gun bills that VCDL supported were all REPORTED OUT:

    HB 982, Delegate Nutter, bans concealed handgun permits from
    dissemination (VCDL preferred version)
    HB 370, Delegate Carrico, bans concealed handgun permits from
    dissemination, rolled and conformed into HB 982
    HB 843, Delegate Sherwood, bans concealed handgun permits from
    dissemination, rolled and conformed into HB 982
    HB 653, Delegate Wright, bans concealed handgun permits from
    dissemination, rolled and conformed into HB 982
    HB 873, Delegate Johnson, clarifies that proof of competency for CHPs
    does not expire
    HB 529, Delegate Pogge, allows for CHP address change and makes
    renewals valid from the old permit's expiration date

    HB1414, Delegate Jim Scott, clarify procedure for revocation of a CHP
    was reported, too. VCDL was neutral on this bill

    Finally, these bills were referred to the House Courts of Justice
    where the other mental health bills are being heard and harmonized:

    HB 657, Delegate Griffith
    HB 535, Delegate Mathieson
    HB 1054, Delegate Scott

    ---

    Tomorrow (Friday) at 9 AM the full committee will hear the above bills
    that were reported AND they will be grilling Norfolk.

    I will be there!

    Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population. -Albert Einstein
