Government Facilities Bill On Local Gov. Docket Tuesday

Senator Whipple's SB 268, a bill that would gut the Commonwealth's firearms preemption statute, is scheduled to be heard tomorrow in the Senate Committee on Local Government. Specifically, the bill would allow the governing body (Board of Supervisors, Town Council, City Council) to pass ordinances banning firearms on property owned or leased by the locality and used for governmental purposes.

The Committee meets at 2:00 PM in Senate Room B.

Gun owners need to call committee members and urge them to defeat the bill. You can find contact information for individual committee members by clicking on their name below. This will be a close vote and gun owners are urged to concentrate on Senator Fred Quayle as he will be the swing vote on this bill.

Lucas (Chairman), Marsh, Quayle, Martin, Hanger, Ticer, Reynolds, Puller, Ruff, Obenshain, Herring, Locke, Smith, Stuart, Marsden
