State Senate Passes Repeal of Handgun Rationing

After a surprisingly brief debate, the Virginia State Senate voted to repeal Virginia's handgun rationing law 21-19.  Senators Marden (D-Fairfax), Howell (D-Fairfax) and Saslaw (D-Fairfac) spoke against the bill. Senator Carrico spoke for his bill with Senator Norment addressed the comments by Marsden and Howell, then after speaking basically for the bill, voted against passed.

This is a great day for Virginia gun owners as the House has already passed a bill to repeal the law, and Governor McDonnell has said he would sign a bill repealing the law.

Democrats Edwards and Deeds joined all Republicans except Norment who voted against the bill.
