Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On Tuesday, January 14, at 9:00 a.m. in State Capitol room 126, the Assembly Public Safety Committee will hear Assembly Bill 503, a pro-gun measure sponsored by Assembly Member Health Flora (R- 12).  AB 503 would allow an individual with a valid concealed carry weapons license to carry to, from, or in a church, synagogue, or another place of worship on the grounds of a public or private K-12 school when the individual has the written permission of the school authority.

There is no such thing as a gun-free zone.  A person intent on criminal violence will not be deterred because of a “no guns” sign or an anti-gun law.  The only consequence of such measures is to ensure law-abiding citizens are disarmed and vulnerable.

AB 503 would not change prohibited person laws BUT would allow properly licensed individuals the opportunity to defend themselves and others when criminals take advantage of gun-free zones.

Make sure you forward this message to your family, friends, and fellow gun owners and urge them to contact the members of the Committee TODAY.

Your NRA will continue to fight to promote and protect your right to keep and bear arms and hunting heritage.

It’s a good start for something that does not need a law but we know how the anti-gun people are.

A politician with a law never stops a bad guy with a gun.
He only controls the good guys, which is his true agenda.

The acts of bad guys provide the pretense to oppress all private citizens. I prefer to call the people control agenda what it is: oppression.

If indeed there is a Constitutional requirement of Separation of Church and State, the State has no
business telling the Church whether, or not, it can allow open or concealed carry in its Houses of
Worship.

the ONLY provision in the US COnstitution relating to “church and state” is that CONGRESS cn make no law that establishes one particular religious sect or system as the NATIONAL religion or sect. This was to prevent one denomination ever being able to become the “national religion”. The Constituioni grants NO authority for FedGov to regulate what happens on private property, such as on or in church grounds. And since the STATES are bound by the US COnstituoin, they cannot infronge upon our individual right to arms, either. Thus, per the laws already in place, Calofirnoa cannot restrict or regulate… Read more »

Tionico: Too many state public servant officials do not adhere to the bounds of our nations constitution. California’s have become the best example of this. The shortage of private citizens holding licenses to carry in California makes this church law moot.
