Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- On Wednesday, April 20, Senate Bill 199 was voted out of the Senate Civil Justice Committee by an 8-3 vote.

SB 199 will now go to the Senate floor and may come to a vote as early as next week. Please contact you state Senator and urge them to vote in favor of SB 199.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator!

SB 199, sponsored by Senator Joe Uecker (R-14), would exempt active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces from the concealed carry permit license requirements. The bill would make several important changes in the Concealed Handgun Law regarding a person who is an active duty member of the U.S. armed forces and is carrying a valid military identification card and a certificate issued by the person’s applicable service branch indicating that the person has successfully completed small arms qualification (qualifying member of the military).

Instead of complaining about the only group which puts their lives on the line for the rights of EVERY American citizen regardless of their political, religious, racial, etc views, and is sworn to protect and defend the Constitution and doesn’t pick and choose which parts to protect and defend… should build on that and, once it goes through, push for equal treatment under the law. We need a group to get their foot in the door. If this gets approved, I think it’s a good thing… much better than some bill which takes more of 2A away from more people.… Read more »

So the government is willing to give part of
THE PEOPLE their RIGHTS.

This should be voted down. No special privileges for government employees.

It’s not a special privilege. These are qualified personnel with qualified training. And considering the average military person pays 30% of their check back into taxes, they’re basically self employed 4 mos of the year. It’s almost an insult to call them government employees.
