Virginia: Senate Courts of Justice Committee Set to Decide Fate of Gun-Related Legisl
Tomorrow, January 25, the state Senate Courts of Justice Committee will hear a number of pro- and anti-gun bills that could have a major effect on the Second Amendment rights of all Virginians. One pro-gun bill of great importance to gun owners is Senate Bill 323. Sponsored by state Senator Bill Carrico (R-40), this legislation would repeal the prohibition on law-abiding citizens buying more than one handgun within a thirty-day period. Anti-gun opponents have long claimed that gun rationing keeps handguns out of the hands of criminals, but history has shown this law has been ineffective and only affects and penalizes law-abiding citizens.
