    1. Good night for gun owners in subcommittee!
    *******************************************

    Tonight was an excellent one for gun owners in the House of
    Delegates. The Militia, Police and Public Safety subcommittee #1 took
    up the following bills:

    SB 1035, Senator Hanger's restaurant ban repeal. Delegates Griffith
    and Lingamfelter, with Senator Hanger's consent, took the notification
    provision out of the restaurant ban. So under the modified bill, a
    CHP holder could just walk into a restaurant carrying concealed and
    simply go about his business. The bill PASSED out of subcommittee.

    Voting pro-gun:

    Wright, Griffith, Lingamfelter, Nutter

    Voting anti-gun:

    Poisson

    -

    SB 1166, Senator Watkin's bill to raise the background check tax for
    firearms from $2 to $5 was DEFEATED! Thanks to Delegate Lingamfelter
    for taking the lead on killing the bill.

    Voting pro-gun:

    Wright, Griffith, Lingamfelter, Nutter

    Voting anti-gun

    Poisson

    -

    SB 1254, Senator Marsh's bill to require out of state permit holders
    with photo-ids to show yet another photo-id to a police officer.
    Marsh didn't show up and the bill was left on the table (KILLED).

    -

    SB 1383, Senator Stolle's bill to repeal Virginia's silence law,
    allowing federal law to rule, PASSED unanimously out of subcommittee.

    -

    SB 1528, Senator Cuccinelli's bill to allow for on-line training for
    CHP permits PASSED out of subcommittee.

    Voting for the bill:

    Wright, Griffith, Lingamfelter, Nutter

    Voting against the bill (who else?):

    Poisson

    2. UK documentary today
    *******************************************

    I was interviewed today for a documentary called "32," which is being
    done by a college group from the United Kingdom. After the interview
    I took the four of them to a local gun range, gave them a quick course
    on gun safety, and we shot a Glock 9 MM. Only one of the four had
    shot before, and that was a shotgun. The one who was filming didn't
    shoot.

    Everyone had a great time.

    Shooting is fun, let's face it.

    They also taped me speaking at the subcommittee hearing in item #1,
    above.

    Earlier in the week, they spent some time with anti-gunners in NoVA.

    Hopefully I gave them a good view of our side of the issue.

    Hey that's great news almost all the way around!


    SB 1383, Senator Stolle's bill to repeal Virginia's silence law,
    allowing federal law to rule, PASSED unanimously out of subcommittee.

    What is the federal punishment for having a non-registered silencer?
