Anti-gun Bills in the Hopper

The first two anti-gun bills have been introduced in the General Assembly by anti-gun senator Mamie Locke. She apparently does not believe there is much of a chance of them becoming law however. This morning's Newport News Daily Press quoted Senator Locke as saying: "In the grand scheme of things — we'll probably get very little. I don't know what it's going to take, but at the very least, I expect there to be more attention on the issue."

Expect to hear a lot about Virginia Tech as a reason that we need more gun control in Virginia. Locke also told the Daily Press that she expects some movement on private sales at gun shows because Governor Kaine has promised to put his political muscle behind the bill.

Senator Locke's bills are:

SB 32 Control of firearms; libraries.
SB 33 Control of firearms; outdoor theaters, cabarets, carnivals, and fairs.

VSSA will keep gun owners posted as new bills are introduced and will fight vigorously to make sure the anti-gun bills do not become law.
