First Firearm Related Bill Prefiled for General Assembly

Delegate Mark Cole is first out of the box with a firearm related bill for the 2008 Session. HB 109 is a pro-gun bill. The bill titled "Regulation of firearms by state entities", prohibits a state agency, council, commission, or other entity from adopting any rules, regulations, or policies governing the purchase, possession, transfer, ownership, carrying, storage, or transporting of firearms, ammunition, or components or combinations thereof, unless expressly authorized by statute. The prohibition does not apply to state, local, and regional correctional facilities or mental health facilities, nor is it to be construed to prohibit a law-enforcement officer from acting within the scope of his duties. Any rule, regulation, or policy adopted prior to July 1, 2007, except for those specifically authorized by statute, will be invalid.

VSSA will soon have its legislative tracking tool on the VSSA website. In addition, gun owners will be able to get up-to-date information on all the goings on at the General Assembly right here on the Blog.
