Virginia: 3 Gun-Control Bills Pass Senate, 1 With REPUBLICAN Help!?, 4th Delayed

Correction from VCDL. Initially, VCDL mistakenly listed Senator Norment as having voted for Universal Background Checks. It was Senator Hanger. This post has been updated to reflect the correction. Sincere apologies to Senator Norment for the mistake from the Virginia Citizens Defense League:

Wherever you look, Bloomberg’s fingerprints are all over these attempts to pass “universal” background checks.
Virginia: 3 Gun-Control Bills Pass Senate, 1 With REPUBLICAN Help!?, 4th Delayed

Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- 1. Three gun-control bills pass the Senate, two on party-line votes and one with the help of two Republicans – Dunnavant and Hanger

SB 35, Senator Surovell, guts state gun-law preemption, passed out of the Senate by a party-line vote on January 16. If you are represented by a Democrat, contact him and let him know you disagree strongly with his vote supporting SB 35.

SB 69, Senator Locke, reinstates the old One-Handgun-A-Month law, passed out of the Senate by a party-line vote on January 16. If you are represented by a Democrat, contact him and let him know you disagree strongly with his vote supporting SB 69.

SB 70, Senator Lucas, universal background checks, passed out of the Senate by a 23 to 17 vote on January 16. If you are represented by a Democrat, contact him and let him know you disagree strongly with his vote supporting SB 70.

If you are represented by Republican Senator Dunnavant or Republican Senator Hanger, let them know you are not happy with their vote on SB 70!

All three bills now head to the House, where they will start over again by being sent to a subcommittee for a vote, probably in mid-February.

2. URGENT Action item: Senate Red Flag bill is delayed

Our pressure is working – let's keep it up! SB 240, Senator Barker, a “Red Flag Law” bill, has been passed by (not voted on) for two days in a row on the Senate Floor. That indicates some problem with the bill or, perhaps, simply not enough support for it.

Let's keep up the pressure to kill SB 240. Click here to send a pre-written email in opposition to SB 240. Also, leave a voice message for your Senator to oppose SB 240.

Seems the coonman didn’t achieve his goal of becoming a king. A prince perhaps. And of course he’s now the most hated governor in Virginia history.

You misspelled princess.
