    Subject: VA-ALERT: ACTION ITEM - Legislation introduction!

    Now is the time to contact your Delegate and your Senator and ask them
    to pre-file two pro-gun bills:

    1. A bill to completely repeal the restaurant ban, allowing permit
    holders to carry just like off-duty and untrained Commonwealth
    Attorneys can now do.

    2. A bill to allow a CHP holder to carry on K-12 school property,
    just like off-duty and untrained Commonwealth Attorneys can now do.

    Here is a suggested message for the Governor:


    Dear Governor Kaine,

    I urge you to support the following two bills when introduced in the
    General Assembly.

    Both bills give trained concealed-handgun permit holders the same
    carry rights as an untrained and off-duty state lawyer based on a bill
    (SB 776) that you signed into law in the 2008 session:

    1. A bill to strike 18.2-308 J3. This will allow a trained person
    with a concealed handgun permit to be able to carry concealed in a
    restaurant or club that serves alcoholic beverages, as untrained
    Commonwealth Attorneys can now do.

    2. A bill to allow a trained concealed handgun permit holder to carry
    on K-12 school grounds, as untrained Commonwealth Attorneys can now.

    A recent Attorney General's Opinion provided to Delegate Lee Ware on
    June 10, 2008, confirmed that, based on your signing SB 776 into law,
    effective July 1, 2008, Commonwealth Attorneys and their deputies can
    carry concealed firearms into restaurants serving alcoholic beverages
    and can carry concealed firearms on K-12 property.

    As a law-abiding citizen who has been screened, background checked,
    and trained in order to meet the criteria for a state issued concealed
    handgun permit, I should have at least the same rights as an off-duty
    state lawyer for whom no firearms training is required.

    Please let me know what you are going to do.


    You can send the message above to the Governor by clicking here and
    doing a copy/paste:


    For the subject use something like:

    Support gun owners like you supported state lawyers!


    Please forward me any responses that you receive.
