    1. Good night for gun owners in subcommittee!
    *******************************************

    Tonight was an excellent one for gun owners in the House of
    Delegates. The Militia, Police and Public Safety subcommittee #1 took
    up the following bills:

    SB 1035, Senator Hanger's restaurant ban repeal. Delegates Griffith
    and Lingamfelter, with Senator Hanger's consent, took the notification
    provision out of the restaurant ban. So under the modified bill, a
    CHP holder could just walk into a restaurant carrying concealed and
    simply go about his business. The bill PASSED out of subcommittee.

    Voting pro-gun:

    Wright, Griffith, Lingamfelter, Nutter

    Voting anti-gun:

    Poisson

    -

    SB 1166, Senator Watkin's bill to raise the background check tax for
    firearms from $2 to $5 was DEFEATED! Thanks to Delegate Lingamfelter
    for taking the lead on killing the bill.

    Voting pro-gun:

    Wright, Griffith, Lingamfelter, Nutter

    Voting anti-gun

    Poisson

    -

    SB 1254, Senator Marsh's bill to require out of state permit holders
    with photo-ids to show yet another photo-id to a police officer.
    Marsh didn't show up and the bill was left on the table (KILLED).

    -

    SB 1383, Senator Stolle's bill to repeal Virginia's silence law,
    allowing federal law to rule, PASSED unanimously out of subcommittee.

    -

    SB 1528, Senator Cuccinelli's bill to allow for on-line training for
    CHP permits PASSED out of subcommittee.

    Voting for the bill:

    Wright, Griffith, Lingamfelter, Nutter

    Voting against the bill (who else?):

    Poisson

    2. UK documentary today
    *******************************************

    I was interviewed today for a documentary called "32," which is being
    done by a college group from the United Kingdom. After the interview
    I took the four of them to a local gun range, gave them a quick course
    on gun safety, and we shot a Glock 9 MM. Only one of the four had
    shot before, and that was a shotgun. The one who was filming didn't
    shoot.

    Everyone had a great time.

    Shooting is fun, let's face it.

    They also taped me speaking at the subcommittee hearing in item #1,
    above.

    Earlier in the week, they spent some time with anti-gunners in NoVA.

    Hopefully I gave them a good view of our side of the issue.
