VA Gov McAuliffe's anti-gun amendment defeated (HB-962)

Postby allingeneral » Sun, 09 Mar 2014 11:47:52

on Friday, the Governor’s amendment to House Bill 962, sponsored by Delegate Ben Cline (R-24), was defeated by a 30-70 vote in the House of Delegates. As previously reported, Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) made his first attempt to limit the legal use of firearms in Virginia by returning an amendment to HB 962 that would further restrict how handguns may be stored in vehicles by forcing drivers to keep firearms in a “locked” container rather than being allowed to secure those firearms in a container without a lock as they have lawfully been doing for years. Thanks to your calls and e-mails, this misguided amendment was rejected. This unamended legislation now returns to the Governor for his decision to sign HB 962 or veto it. Please contact Governor McAuliffe TODAY and urge him to sign HB 962 into law! Please e-mail him by clicking here and call him at 804-786-2211.

Thank YOU! All of you who called. I have been to sick to keep up with stuff.

I had direct email communications with Delegate Lingamfelter about this. He is the chairman of the Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee. I'm sure he has some influence in the right circles to help preserve our rights.

I'm glad to see that our voices still have weight in the ears of some of our leaders.
