This is one of several that will be heard tomorrow, Thursday February 2, in the MPPS Subcommittee #1 meeting at 5PM.
I don't think I can make this one. The real test will be on the Senate side.
Here's the docket:
Quick cut and paste:
Concealed handgun permits; confidentiality of permittee information. Prohibits the clerk of the court from disclosing information contained on a concealed handgun permit application or on an order issuing a concealed handgun permit.
Department of Criminal Justice Services; minimum training standards; juvenile correctional officers. Requires the Department of Criminal Justice Services and the Criminal Justice Services Board to provide compulsory minimum entry-level training standards for juvenile correctional officers.
Criminal history record information check for transfer of certain firearms; exemption for concealed handgun permittees. Provides an exemption from Virginia-specific criminal history record information checks upon the purchase of firearms from licensed dealers when the purchaser is a Virginia resident holding a valid Virginia-issued concealed handgun permit.
Auxiliary Police Officers; training standards. Allows individual law-enforcement departments within jurisdictions that establish auxiliary police forces to determine the training standards for those auxiliary police officers.
Concealed handgun permit applications; fingerprints. Removes the option for a locality to require that an applicant for a concealed handgun permit submit fingerprints as part of the application.
Carrying concealed weapons by former attorneys for the Commonwealth. Provides an exemption for former attorneys for the Commonwealth and former assistant attorneys for the Commonwealth from the requirement to obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Purchase of service handguns; certain law-enforcement officers. Permits certain law-enforcement officers to purchase their service handgun after 15 years of service. Current law requires law-enforcement officers to have served 20 years before they may purchase their service handgun.
