The deal includes reversing Attorney General Mark Herring’s decision to end concealed carry reciprocity agreements with 25 states that fail to meet Virginia’s standards. In fact, it broadens reciprocity to all 49 states in the country. This would allow individuals from other states with weak or relatively no requirements for carrying a concealed weapon to legally do the same in Virginia. That means convicted stalkers and abusers, habitual drunks, those with severe mental illness, and other dangerous individuals could carry weapons in the Commonwealth of Virginia.SB 610 should be up for a final vote on Tuesday, February 2nd. Please make sure your State Senator knows you support passage of this bill.
We don’t want the George Zimmermans of the world to be armed in our neighborhoods! We want our Governor, who we elected to keep us safe, to stand up to the NRA and REJECT THIS BAD DEAL.

Virginian's for Responsible Gun Laws sent out an email today urging their supporters to contact their state senators and urge them to vote again Senator Reeves' SB610, the Senate bill that is the vehicle to advance the deal to restore concealed carry permit reciprocity/recognition with 25 states.
