Vote here on the left of the article!

Vote "yes" on the poll. This involves allowing students with lawfully obtained Concealed Weapon Permits to carry their weapons on campus for self defense.

The poll ended up getting around 4 MILLION votes. I didn't see the final count but it was near 90% pro gun.

And the bill was still killed.

Unfortunately, it was... but other pro gun bills passed. We've lost alot, but won alot.

Good news! Two pro-gun bills just passed the House and are on their
way to the Senate where we start all over again:

HB 162, Delegate Lingamfelter's bill to allow law-abiding citizens to
have a gun in their parked vehicle passed by 74 to 22!

Here is the version that passed:

leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?061+ful+HB162H1

HB 1265, Delegate Janis' bill to prevent the government from
disarming us during an emergency or disaster passed by 97 to 0!

Here is the version that passed:

leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?061+ful+HB1265H1


AND

First, the bad news: Alaska carry and the restaurant ban repeal were
defeated by a single vote in the Militia, Police and Public Safety
subcommittee #3 this morning. :-(

There is no doubt in my mind that the Republican Leadership sent the
restaurant ban repeal and Alaska carry to that committee to die.
Well, they got their way. Also Delegate Roslyn Tyler (D-Jarratt),
whose district is partly pro-gun, has vote WRONG on every single
pro-gun bill that has come up in this subcommittee!

Now the GOOD news: YOUR EFFORTS TO CONTACT DELEGATE PAULA MILLER WORKED!

HB 1106, Delegate Athey's "Alaska Car Carry" bill (no permit required
for carry in a motor vehicle or boat if they are privately owned, and
no permit required to carry on your own property) was amended to
require notification of an officer that you have a concealed handgun
if you are stopped.

With that amendment by Democrat Delegate Miller, she was comfortable
supporting the measure, and it PASSED by a 3 to 2 vote!

HB 1106 now goes to the full committee.

We need to pay careful attention to the votes on that full committee
to make sure that this bill gets to the Floor and beyond.

In a frustrating move, the State Police were trying to run
interference on getting this bill passed. In the end, the VASP's
concerns were deemed to be unreasonable or not significant (even by
Delegate Carrico, who is an ex-State Police officer) and the bill
passed anyway.

ACTION ITEMS:

FIRST, you need to get the word out to your Delegate that you want HB

SECOND, we need to thank Delegates Janis (who did a fine job
defending the bill), Carrico (who did the right thing even though he
doesn't like bucking the State Police), and Delegate Miller (whose
vote was critical) for HB 1106 passing out of subcommittee:
