Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- THE FIRST BILL: SB-344, Burden of Proof by Sen. Rob Bradley is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Criminal Justice Committee on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, at 9:00AM.

SB-344 Burden of Proof
restores the Stand Your Ground law to the original intent of the Legislature by putting the burden of proof BACK ON THE STATE where it belongs.

Through court action, prosecutors and courts have reversed the self-defense law that gives immunity from arrest, detaining in custody, charging and prosecuting until and unless an investigation reveals there is probable cause to believe the act was not lawful self-defense. They created a special “Stand Your Ground” that forces the victim to prove innocence rather than the state prove guilt. This bill stops that.

THE SECOND BILL: SB-300 Open Carry by Sen. Don Gaetz is also scheduled to be heard in the Senate Criminal Justice Committee on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, at 9:00AM

SB-300 Open Carry
 is a bill to allow persons with a Concealed Weapons and Firearms License to also carry openly. This will stop abuse of license holders and keep them from being charged with crime if their firearm accidentally and unintentionally becomes exposed to the ordinary sight of another person.
