Live Blogging Vote on HB2528

HB2528, Delegate Cole's bill targeting "Compensated Gun Confiscation" is on final vote today. This vote will be close. It was passed out of committee on an 8-7 vote and there is grumbling among some Senators inclined to support the bill that they don't like mandating what localities should or should not do.

12:55 - The bill is up for the vote now. Senator Lucas said even though she does not support the bill and voted against it in committee, she moved it pass as chairman of the committee.

12:56 - Bill passes 21Y-18N.

This was easier than I thought it would be.

UPDATE - Something is afoot in the Senate. Senator Stolle moved the vote be reconsidered, it was approved, then he offered an amendment (it is currently not online), then had the bill passed by for the day. I presume the amendment removes the requirement that localities sell the firearms and makes it permissive - something they can already do. I will update as soon as I see the amendment.
