Virginia: Senate Judiciary Rejects All Pro-Gun Bills

Unsurprisingly, the Virginia Senate Committee rejected a number of bills that would have protected or advanced Second Amendment rights. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The Senate Committee on Judiciary heard bills affecting Second Amendment rights yesterday. Unsurprisingly, the Committee rejected a number of bills that would have protected or advanced Second Amendment rights.

Senate Bill 74 would have prevented localities from passing their own restrictions on lawful carry and required them to sell firearms to licensed dealers that they obtained by, or with the assistance of, taxpayer-funded resources in so-called “gun buybacks.”

Senate Bill 330 would have made Virginia a constitutional carry state, recognizing the inherent right-to-carry of law-abiding citizens.

Senate Bill 364 would have repealed the handgun rationing scheme where law-abiding citizens are only allowed to buy one handgun per 30-day period.

Senate Bill 644 would have exempted holders of resident Virginia carry permits, who already pass background checks conducted by state police, from the ban on private sales of firearms.

Senate Bill 763 would have exempted holders of Virginia concealed handgun permits from local ordinances that restricting lawful carry of firearms.

This highlights the importance of gun owners staying vigilant and thinking forward to the 2023 Virginia elections, when the whole state Senate is up for re-election. Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates.

Time for a Convention of States. If we don’t divide into a Federalist inspired republic of independent states, we will be conquered.

Virginia is making progress claiming their state from the commies who have moved in in the past, to work in the SWAMP. I suppose Virginia has a high concentration of migrant commies within commuting distance from that Hellhole Washington DC. I live in the Soviet of Washington and have seen firsthand how commie migration, (from Kalifornia), can ruin a good state. Regardless why the bastard commies are there, Virginia has more work to do. I suspect the impediments to freedom are marked and the good folks of Virginia are planning their next move. We didn’t get into this situation over… Read more »

Backwards state!

These “committees must be where the Communists democrats hide. Time to root them out!!

The Virginia state senate has 21 members who are Democrats and 19 who are Republicans. I remember when Youngkin was elected governor, someone posted that Virginia had “flipped” – far from it. Too many people vote for Democrats because they promise even more forced redistribution of wealth than the Republicans. The Virginia State Judiciary Committee has 8 Democrat members and 6 Republican members. SB 364 was written to reverse an obscene law restricting handgun purchases to one every 30 days. The vote was: “Passed by Indefinitely” (Action to allow a committee to reconsider legislation at a later meeting. If the… Read more »

Firearm rights activism downvoted by people who sit on their couch all day and do nothing to meet people in person, influence opinion, and get the vote out to defeat never-ending gun control.

You sit there 18 hours a day, every day, with your finger on the downvote button and pretend you are pro 2nd Amendment.

What happened to Virginia can happen to other states (it’s well on the way in some).

Arny

I’m in aw over the amount of downvotes for the truth being spoken. Crazy world we live in. lol

JSNMGC

They want to talk about .35 Remington and 1950s TV shows.

They supported the NRA for many decades before they finally conceded the the NRA is not actually “fighting for our rights.”

They are never going to do anything beyond sending a few dollars to GOA. They won’t organize meetings, they won’t go to meetings, they won’t meet legislators in person, they won’t write letters, they won’t make phone calls, and they won’t research legislation to find out who voted for never-ending gun control.

They downvote those who do those things.

Raconteur

Wow! You really hit close to home.

loveaduck

Many gun owners and political action can be described in one word, lazy.

Oldman

Not bad….Way to counter…..You, who must sit there at least 18 hours a day according too your daily postings, calling the kettle black. Put that useless finger on the button and down vote me, maggot….oops, I mean worm.

JSNMGC

Nope. Look closer.

I’ve been lifting, snowshoeing, skiing, skating, meeting with pro 2nd Amendment activists, and enjoying time with my family.

You are brave at your keyboard.

So, basically, you only have six hours everyday to do all those activities + shit shower and shave, eat and what ever else you may or not have time for? Not for one minute do I believe you……You must not sleep much. Maybe that is your problem there, Bucko.

JSNMGC

You were a detective, weren’t you? Go back and look at the actual data. I go days without being here while I’m off hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing, etc. Nine days ago, I went on a trip to a warmer location and shot sporting clays for a few days with some friends and family. I wasn’t on the board for three days. When I’m home, I’m outside every day. I lift three days a week. I can walk out my door and go snowshoeing, hiking, fly fishing, and grouse hunting without getting in a vehicle. A group of pro-freedom people is… Read more »

That’s a nice dream you got there…………Must be a pipe dream cuz you don’t have time to sleep…..and no I never have been a Detective…..but that doesn’t mean I can’t smell a rat.

Ignore the data and make-up your own.

People live here for a lot of reasons – being able to enjoy outdoor sports is one of them.

Gee, I looked at the actual data and found that there are at least five people that you have insulted so badly that they make it their business to down vote your comments, even when you stumble on a good observation. Very social.

JSNMGC

You are selective in making your “observations” about insults.

Wild Bill

You are selective about your work history.

JSNMGC

“You are selective about your work history.”

I just don’t want to disclose what it is – you keep making up lies about it.

Wild Bill

Naaa, I remember you wrote snowplow driver, tow truck driver and EMT.

Wild Bill

I noticed not one word about earning a living in his list. Not surprised.

JSNMGC

Retired early and enjoying life.

Wild Bill

Not what you wrote before. If you are retired why would you be scared of being cancelled. That is what you wrote that you were scared of (being doxxed or whatever it is called.)
Oh, what a tangled web you weave, when you practice to deceive.

JSNMGC

I never wrote that I was I not retired.

I take precautions with my identity, of course. You do too.

I don’t deceive.

Once you have your feelings hurt, you just keep making things up.

Wild Bill

No, you wrote that you were working. Driving snowplow, and tow truck. Now, you say retired.
No one’s feelings could be hurt by you.

JSNMGC

“No, you wrote that you were working. Driving snowplow, and tow truck. Now, you say retired.
No one’s feelings could be hurt by you.” ~ Wild Bill

I never said I drive a snowplow or a tow truck.

Would you please stop lying?

Go back and review the thread you are referencing.

JSNMGC

Here is what I wrote (it was in the same group of comments in which you were outed for your lie about calling people “raging assholes”): “Cruiser is not the first to write that retort here. There are life-saving events I can think of, but almost none of them would be resolved with an enforcer. Almost all them involve: Me My family My friends EMT (government employees, volunteers, and private sector employees) Hospital emergency room/surgical teams Random stranger on a snowmobile Random stranger on foot Snow plow driver Tow truck operator I’m not saying we don’t need law enforcement personnel… Read more »

Oh, so you can not do those things either? I stand corrected.

JSNMGC

“Oh, so you can not do those things either? I stand corrected.” ~ Wild Bill

Do you ever stand back and take an objective look at what you write?

Oldman

Agree! As he says, ” The truth hurts” For sure, it does.

JSNMGC

Lots of retired people post here. The truth that I’m retired doesn’t hurt one bit.

loveaduck

You’re not rabid enough for some.

Wild Bill

I’m thinking that he has insulted too many people.

swmft

likely all ex or current leos

JSNMGC

Yes, and unconditional enforcer supporters.

The truth hurts.

You got something against us in LE, Bucko? Most of us work in the trenches and risk getting injured every day, while you moan and groan. Why don’t you come out to L.A, and take a ride along in the South End? See what it is like. Or better yet, become a Reserve Officer and change LE from the inside. Might be difficult to leave your biscotti and latte routine, though. On the other hand, don’t. I probably wouldn’t trust you to back me as a partner in a situation gone sideways.

JSNMGC

As I’ve said before, I don’t support the bad ones. The LAPD has done some bad things and I have never read anything from you commenting on those bad things. Bad things, include: Following orders to abandon “civilians” in non-affluennt neighborhoods so those people had to defend themselves from violent rioters (and then hassling those very “civilians” in subsequent days for brandishing firearms); Shooting over a hundred rounds at two newspaper delivery ladies (and scoring two hits on one of them) and then being defended by their colleagues; Abusing privileges they shouldn’t have in the first place (like being able… Read more »

what you consider beating a guy to death with a flash light bad???? how could you. the duality of “good” cops is why I got out.. my experience there was no good anyone. I had 4 years to retire and walked the law enforcement agencies treat the people they work for like combatants rather than family. their only family is other cops one big crips or bloods gang

JSNMGC

I appreciate all the comments you have made about the truth of law enforcement in America. Courageous Lion and Roland T. Gunner have also made comments. RoyD was also a federal agent and spoke out against some of the actions by the BATFE and the FBI. A large percentage of state/county/city/town law enforcement members stick together when one of them does something terrible and they will punish any who speak out. Its clear how they work together on the internet and people should be cautious of them in real life. Their defense is typically “why don’t you do the job… Read more »

I did do the job at the worst of the drug wars, and bad police is the norm and the idealists that get in are driven out or made to keep quiet good example of that was highway patrol officer stopping a broward sherif who was driving recklessly https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/miami-cops-who-admitted-searching-female-officers-private-data-get-no-legal-punishment-9129525 all the threats she received from other leos went un punished ….so the thugs stay and the one good one is out

swmft

guess you still have a chip or two. betting you did a lot of illegal things under color of law read title 18 sometime and bill of rights , dont think you will grow enough to admit you did anything wrong but the pangs of guilt show in the bad attitude “bucco” really ask how many served in military Im betting most

Wild Bill

I have great hope for the future. The libtard dimocrats are all getting the jab. If all of the bad health effects of the jab are true, then those bad effects will be visited on our enemies and the libtard plan to get rid of people will backfire on them.

Beyond Biden, written by Newt G. is highly inspiring because, starting this Nov., there will no doubt be a reversal in ALL legislatures both Federal and State. Electing Biden has been the biggest boon to conservancy since the Civil War, IMO. They have no one to blame but themselves. Self Serving Commie Bastards!

even Canadians are tired of the bs their long haul truckers are not getting the jab just like ours. eat sand

Is Virginia where Cool Aid was invented?

Raconteur

Nah, but they drink it by the tanker load in Northern Virginia, Richmond, Charlottesville and Norfolk (where the girls neither kiss Norf–).

sad jim jones followers that were not at jonestown. biden and sanders missed their leader

Wild Bill

Funny!

Wild Bill

Oh yes the cheerleaders, but a guy has to know how they pronounce Norfork down there:

“We’re the girls from Norfork,
We don’t drink
and we don’t smoke,
Norfork! Norfork!”

that is why navy subs go to groton,
