NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  Wednesday April 23, the Virginia Senate rejected Governor Terry McAuliffe’s (D) NRA-opposed amendment to Senate Bill 377 by a 15 to 23 vote.

As previously reported, the McAuliffe amendment to SB 377, legislation sponsored by state Senator Bryce Reeves (R-17), would have created a de-facto gun registration scheme for those seeking to sell, trade or transfer their lawfully owned firearms to a gun dealer.

While SB 377, as passed and sent to the Governor, requires a gun dealer to destroy all submitted consent forms for transfer of a firearm determined not to be lost or stolen within two weeks, the Governor’s amendment would mandate that those consent forms be kept by the dealer for at least ninety days, with no requirement to ever destroy them.

With the Senate rejection of this anti-gun amendment, SB 377 will now be returned to Governor McAuliffe in its original form.
