Covington VA --(Ammoland.com)- Great news!

Last night the Militia, Police and Public Safety subcommittee #1 approved a substitute bill for Senator Obenshain’s SB 1335.

As you might recall, SB 1335 prohibited the Clerk of Court from giving out any information on a CHP holder who has a protective order out against somebody.

The substitute is much better – it exempts ALL permit holders from having their information disseminated by the Circuit Court Clerks! No more newspapers printing the names and other information on permit holders, endangering lives!

The new bill makes it even safer for those with protective orders, as they don’t have to do anything extra to protect their information – they (and you and I) are all covered 24/7!

Even the Circuit Court Clerk’s professional organization likes this bill.

I want to thank Board member Dennis O’Connor for filling in for me at the subcommittee hearing (I was in Craig County with the shooting range issue).

This morning the full Militia, Police and Public Safety committee met and passed the bill out to the Floor by an 11 to 4 vote.

(As a side note, Andrew Goddard told the full committee that what they did in subcommittee to change the bill was “underhanded.” That did not go over well, especially since the change was done openly and in the normal fashion in subcommittee. Goddard had decided not to attend last night’s subcommittee hearing. That’s his fault, not the subcommittee’s fault. Delegate Lingamfelter took Goddard to task, saying that the subcommittee was simply doing business as usual and that Goddard’s beef would be better summed up as simply not liking the substitute bill. Goddard finally gave half an apology, but I believe even his allies on the committee were embarrassed.)

NOW THE WORK BEGINS!

We need to get an email out urgently to our Delegates to make sure they support this important bill!
