Virginia – -(Ammoland.com)- The Virginia State Police are way, way behind on entering CHP holder information into the Virginia Criminal Information Network (VCIN).
What that means is that if you are stopped by law enforcement, who for some reason doesn't trust the validity of your CHP, and the officer queries VCIN, he might be told incorrectly that your permit doesn't exist (if new) or has expired!
Supposedly the VCIN system puts up a message warning officer's that it's data is not to be blindly trusted, but I'm hearing some officers are doing so anyway and there have been arrests. If the VCIN information isn't 100% accurate, why are the State Police even providing it? That's a recipe for disaster.
If You Have Been **Falsely** Arrested For An Invalid Or Expired CHP, Or Know Someone Who Has, Virginia Citizens Defense League Needs The Details!
We need to get to the bottom of this situation. Like I said, publishing incorrect information on VCIN is worse than not publishing any information at all.
Please spread this message on any chat groups where Virginia gun owners are likely to see it.
