Delegate Michael Webert will be the guest speaker at the 2016 VSSA Annual Meeting on September 17 at the Arlington-Fairfax IWLA. Delegate Webert's district includes Fauquier, Warren, Culpeper and Rappahannock counties. His day job is a farmer who runs a family farming operation on roughly 3500 acres of owned and rented land. During the 2016 session of the Virginia General Assembly, Delegate Webert sponsored House Bill 1163, one of three bills that was part of an agreement with Governor Terry McAuliffe to overturn Attorney General Mark Herring's December action ending concealed carry reciprocity and recognition agreements with 25 states. HB1163 requires the State Police Superintendent to enter into reciprocal arrangements with states that require the mutual recognition of concealed carry permits within 60 days of it’s enactment. The legislation also prohibits the recognition of an out of state permit if an individual’s Virginia permit has been revoked.
Also during the 2016 General Assembly, Delegate Webert sponsored and the Governor signed HB206. HB206 repeals the requirement that a Virginia resident present a secondary form of government issued identification to purchase a firearm. Under the new law, an individual would be required to provide only a single form of ID issued by a governmental agency of the Commonwealth or by the U.S. Department of Defense that indicates Virginia residency.
