    Please send an email right now to your Delegate urging support for the
    modified restaurant ban repeal bill, SB 1035, and the unamended REAL-
    ID bill, HB 1587.

    The other REAL-ID bill, SB 1431, was amendment in committee and that
    amendment destroyed the bill. Thus we also need to urge the House to
    kill that bill.

    On Monday morning 4 gun bills will be heard in the Senate Courts of
    Justice committee at 8:30 AM:

    HB 1851, Delegate Lingamfelter's bill to exempt active-duty military
    from Virginia's one handgun a month law. (SUPPORT)

    HB 2136, Delegate Jackson Miller's bill to allow a police officer to
    arrest at will for a Class 1 or Class 2 misdemeanor. (OPPOSE)

    HB 2144, Delegate Nutter's CHP privacy loophole bill that stops the
    State Police from disseminating CHP information, but leaves a huge
    loophole that lets courts give out that same information and more.
    (OPPOSE unless amended to completely protect the private information
    of CHP holders.)

    HB 2178, Delegate Ed Scott's bill that makes possession of ammunition
    by a convicted felon a crime under Virginia law. (OPPOSE)

    --

    On Monday afternoon Senator Marsh's SB 1254, which requires that out
    of state CHP holders who already have a picture on their permits show
    yet another picture ID, is being heard in the House Courts of Justice
    committee. VCDL opposes this bill.

    Thank you for your e-mail opposing HB 2144.

    I have reviewed this legislation and do not see a loophole that would
    continue to allow the press to access this information. To the contrary it
    seems to limit access to just police and those doing police business.

    The bill came out of the Militia & Police committee unanimously and passed
    the House in a block of bills that were uncontested. It is currently in
    the Senate and will be on the floor tomorrow.

    I hope that this information is helpful to you.

    Sincerely,

    Delegate Bob Marshall

    Oh my goodness, this makes me want to PUKE.

    I guess I will have to send him copies of the Free Lance-Star's monthly lists.

    This reply is disgusting.

    Does this Marshall guy specialize in not knowing the law?

    This is the SECOND time in the last week he has been quoted with some nonsensical statement.

    Thank you for your e-mail in opposition to HB 2136.

    I wanted to let you know that I voted in favor of HB 2136 and to tell you
    why.

    Prior to a Supreme Court decision in 2006 the law to allowed police
    officers to arrest for misdemenors and they typically only did so in
    certain circumstances. The court decision still allows them to arrest for
    certain circumstances surrounding misdemenors but has left thm in a bad
    position in certain other situations. For example if a witness tells an
    officer that he has seen an offense take place the officer can arrest the
    offender for that misdemenor but if the officer witnesses the offense
    he/she cannot arrest the person for the same offense.

    There are certain misdemenors that certainly warrant arrest but officers
    cannot arrest for if they witness, these include, trespass, assault, sexual
    battery, indecent exposure and peeping. This prohibits officers from
    arresting know drug dealers for trespassing on housing authority property
    from which they have been banned and arresting known shoplifters who are
    trespassing on retail property from which they have been banned. Now
    officers must issue a summons even in assault and trespass cases and in
    most cases the summons is ignored allowing misdemeanants to escape justice.
    It also keeps officers from making arrests even is situations where they
    might be able to because of fear of being accused of unlawful arrest. This
    means more criminals roaming the streets.

    I do not believe that this legislation is in any way meant to target law
    abiding citizens. It is merely intended to allow officers the right of
    arrest that they had in certain misdemenor cases until 3 years ago.

    I hope this information helps you understand why I voted for this
    legislation. If you have any further questions or concerns please let me
    know.

    Sincerely,

    Delegate Bob Marshall

    Well, I sent Del Marshall an e-mail, and he did reply, saying essentially, he didn't say any such thing. So I replied with the text of his e-mail above, saying "a constituent shared it with me"...

    I know they're busy, but wow.
