ImageGun Control Pass Out Of Committee: Virginia Legislative Update 1/27/2020Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- More gun control bills pass out of committee On Friday the House Public Safety Committee met to hear a series of gun-control bills. This type of hearing is normally done in subcommittee, but they skipped the subcommittee meeting. Some of the bills duplicated or were similar to each other. Those bills were rolled together into one single bill. No pro-gun bills were heard and all the gun-control bills passed out of committee and are headed to the Floor. Here are the seven gun-control bills that came out of the committee. Bad votes are in red, bi-partisan votes are underlined. Not a single Democrat on the committee voted even once to support gun owners. Republican Delegates Ronnie Campbell and Amanda Batten stood with gun owners 100%: HB 2, Plum, Universal Background Checks. It doesn't even allow for the loaning of a gun, even among hunters, unless both parties stay right next to each other the entire time. Passed on party-line vote: YEAS–Hope, Bourne, Plum, Kory, Lopez, Rasoul, Price, Levine, Carroll Foy, Helmer, Cole, J.G., Simonds, Jenkins–13. NAYS–Wright, Robinson, Wilt, Fariss, Rush, Davis, Campbell, R.R., Coyner, Batten–9. – HB 9, Bourne, requires reporting of a lost or stolen gun within 24 hours of the discovery of the loss or theft. This bill implies that the gun owner could be liable if the lost or stolen gun is used in a crime, unless it is reported within the 24-hours. That is a bad precedent. Passed by a vote of 15 to 7, with some Republicans supporting it: YEAS–Hope, Bourne, Plum, Kory, Lopez, Rasoul, Price, Levine, Carroll Foy, Helmer, Cole, J.G., Simonds, Jenkins, Robinson, Coyner–15. NAYS–Wright, Wilt, Fariss, Rush, Davis, Campbell, R.R., Batten–7. – HB 421, Price, destroys the firearm preemption law, allowing localities to make confusing ordinances, resolutions, or motions that affect the possession, carrying, storage, or transport of firearms or ammunition. It passed on a party-line vote: YEAS–Hope, Bourne, Plum, Kory, Lopez, Rasoul, Price, Levine, Carroll Foy, Helmer, Cole, J.G., Simonds, Jenkins–13. NAYS–Wright, Robinson, Wilt, Fariss, Rush, Davis, Campbell, R.R., Coyner, Batten–9. – HB 1083, Hayes, makes it a felony to leave a loaded, unsecured firearm where someone under 18 years old has access to it. Many home invasions have been stopped by someone under 18 using a firearm. Passed by a party-line vote: YEAS–Hope, Bourne, Plum, Kory, Lopez, Rasoul, Price, Levine, Carroll Foy, Helmer, Cole, J.G., Simonds, Jenkins–13. NAYS–Wright, Robinson, Wilt, Fariss, Rush, Davis, Campbell, R.R., Coyner, Batten–9. – HB 674, Sullivan, Red Flag law. Sullivan claimed this bill will help prevents suicides. Baloney. It shreds the Constitution. Passed by a party-line vote: YEAS–Hope, Bourne, Plum, Kory, Lopez, Rasoul, Price, Levine, Carroll Foy, Helmer, Cole, J.G., Simonds, Jenkins–13. NAYS–Wright, Robinson, Wilt, Fariss, Rush, Davis, Campbell, R.R., Coyner, Batten–9. – HB 812, Ward, One Handgun a Month. Worst of two bills that were rolled together. There is no exemption for CHP holders that the old law had. Passed on a party-line vote: YEAS–Hope, Bourne, Plum, Kory, Lopez, Rasoul, Price, Levine, Carroll Foy, Helmer, Cole, J.G., Simonds, Jenkins–13. NAYS–Wright, Robinson, Wilt, Fariss, Rush, Davis, Campbell, R.R., Coyner, Batten–9. – HB 1004, Mullin, takes away a person's guns even in his own home if there is a protective order out against him, setting up that person to be murdered by a vengeful spouse or other person. Mullins had a chip on his shoulder when discussing his bill and was called out for how he was addressing fellow committee members who questioned him on the bill. Passed on a 20 to 2 vote, with many Republicans voting for the bill: YEAS–Hope, Bourne, Plum, Kory, Lopez, Rasoul, Price, Levine, Carroll Foy, Helmer, Cole, J.G., Simonds, Jenkins, Wright, Robinson, Wilt, Fariss, Rush, Davis, Coyner–20. NAYS–Campbell, R.R., Batten–2. 2. Action item: Let's flood the phone lines at the General Assembly! Let's make calls and send emails to both our Senator and Delegate, saying “no more gun control,” including Red Flag laws, weakening of firearm preemption laws, any bans on guns, magazines, or suppressors, and Universal Background Checks.
