Media Still Talking About Those Virginia Nonresident CHP Permits

Here is Harrisonburg's WHSV version of the story that was all over the media Monday courtesy of the AP.

For all the talk about the online version of the required safety course, it should once again be stressed that even before it was made clear by the General Assembly that online courses were acceptable, the Virginia training requirement was always very basic and even a hunter education course satisfied the requirement. The only thing that the online provision does is make it easier in these tough economic times when many are working two jobs, to qualify for a concealed handgun permit (CHP) without having to sit in a classroom for four or six hours. Virginia has never had a hands-on range time requirement.
