    I got this from the VCDL.
    Please call or email your delegates and ask them to support this.

    Good luck from me too.

    My state enacted Constitutional Carry a while back and it hasn't created any problems. It would be nice to see more states get onn board.

    Likewise for me...

    But what I read on the OP certainly sounds good... [​IMG]

    Yes, it is 20/20 in the senate, but a few democrats do have A or B ratings from the NRA.

    Well, I hounded my reps about it. I also noticed on the VCDL website quite a few other promising bits of legislation in various stages of the legislative process, including some castle doctrine laws. Should be interesting to see what happens.

    Indeed...I find it deplorable that the Old Dominion, which gave us the seminal thinkers of the Constitution in people like George Mason and James Madison, does not have a Castle Doctrine!

    My prayers have been answered! Now all we need is to get rid of the mag cap limits on carried firearms and the 1 handgun a month law.

    We have a very solid body of case law.

    The only thing an actual 'castle law' might add is some type of restriction on civil suites, but Virginia has never had a real rash of them anyway.

    And 'castle laws' that prevent the filing of a civil suite are not going to stand a significant challenge.
    Ones that make the complainant pay if they lose the civil suite have a much better chance of being held valid.

    Interesting point about Virginia not needing a Castle Doctrine, on the basis that civil suits are not that big in this state. However, that also leads me to think that the legal lobby is having a huge impact on whether such a doctrine is implemented.

    On balance, I have no issue with what you said. I guess I would just like to see VA enact such a doctrine on principle, as a statement on the growing number of states issuing such declarations.

    Outside of a limit on civil suites we already have the law, it is just common (case) law and not statute law.

    One thing that was expressed in the legislature when it has been discussed is not wanting to in any way disturb the existing common law.

    Statute law is NOT the only law.

    Common (case) law is just as significant (though a little harder to research).
