Bill to Ban Out-of-State Sale of Long Guns Introduced at General Assembly

Delores McQuinn has introduced HB 61 for the 2014 General Assembly.  The bill would prohibit the sale of any rifle, shotgun, or "assault rifle" by a federally licensed firearms dealer to any out-of-state resident. Currently, out-of-state residents may purchase long guns from licensed retailers in the Commonwealth.  This appears to be in response to the Navy Yard incident where the shooter purchased his firearms from a licensed retailer in Virginia.  VSSA will strongly oppose this bill and we urge gun owners to let their Delegate know your thoughts on this legislation.
