The governors public safety agenda for the session is still very fluid from what I understand. It won't be firmed up until after the elections.
That said, some of the plan will involve increased sentencing for existing crimes. Some of what I've seen seems to be directed toward satisfying the Virginia Tech lobby groups.
I don't want to say very much about this right now, for several reasons but the biggest one is because there are some trade-offs in the process that could benefit gunowners. There is a very large question mark about that right now and until I see exactly what the trade will be, I don't know whether it/they will be a good thing in the grand scheme of things, or bad.
VCDL is aware of at least some of the agenda, because at least a portion of their 2012 agenda will fall in place with the governors.
I really can't say a lot more simply because the governor's package isn't finished and won't be until shortly before the session, and other than a few generalities, I have no idea what VCDL has planned. Philip has given a few tidbits of information, but no specifics.
Primary and secondary schools will be one focus of both.
if my gut feeling means anything, I think that with the exception of making a few people feel better, the public safety agenda and any meaningful pro-gun legislation will be nonevents again this year. There are a lot of other things that have people's attention and as we all know politics is nothing but public-relations on steroids.
