    Arkansas is actually passing pro 2A legislation. I love my state.

    WA has nothing I'm aware of. "The state of Washington hereby fully occupies and preempts the entire field of firearms regulation". Gun-grabbing cities whine about it, but they can't do anything. That keeps any gun legislation at the state-level so it's hard to sneak anything by and keeps the laws same anywhere inside the state.

    FL seems fine. I don't know of anything coming down the pike. There's a group headed up by Trayvon Martin's mom to repeal the SYG law, but it doesn't have much traction.

    I haven't heard or read anything in Ohio. Some local districts are passing laws allowing staff members in schools to carry. The only states I have read about that are jamming crap through are typically regarded as the liberal states. California's new laws sound scary and unconstitutional.

    No anti-gun stuff going to pass in Arizona. A couple of proposed bills, but they wont go anywhere. The city of Tucson either passed or has proposed an ordinance to require background checks for all sales (gun shows) that take place on city property. But, then, Tucson is to Arizona what san francisco is to california.

    MS is working on/passed a resolution telling Obama to "get bent" with any new gun control.
    TN has a similar resolution bobbing around in the state senate right now.

    Virginia is trying to pass a bill that will forbid all state entities from aiding in enforcing any federal gun control legislation. as far as i know, its on the house floor right now.. although some feel it is not strong enough, and should include jailing federal agents... and we are working on further eliminating gun free zones, right now in Virginia, the only places you cant carry, are courthouses, a place of worship while a meeting of religious purposes is being held without good reason, private property where prohibited by owner, and school property. we can carry into a restaurant that has an alcohol license as long we dont consume alcohol... i havent heard exactly what we're pushing foor, but assume schools will be removed from the list after sandy hook, since we are trying to pass legislation to increase armed security in schools... and gun sales are climbing where as our gun crimes are down by 40% and still dropping as sales increase... so it seems that removing gun free zones does help in crime stopping... but then again our crime rates have always been lower then adjacent states MD, and DC, as they have stricter gun laws and gun free zones... go figure... and oddly enough, you can OC in virginia at 18 even though you cant buy a handgun... logic...

    Indeed VCDL is doing a great job.

    Kudos to Phil Van Cleave and staff.

    Are you sure about that?

    What is the status of...

    SB 435 - Memo: Assault Weapons Ban Bans firearms with certain cosmetic features that make them look scary. No grandfathering. Possession of scary-looking firearms after the effective date is an M1 the first time (read: lifetime prohibitor of firearms possession) and F3 each subsequent time.

    HB239 "All firearms...shall be registered...." Photos, SSN, and fingerprints required with annual renewal fees!

    SB192 An Act amending Titles 18 (Crimes and Offenses) and 53 (Municipalities Generally) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, providing for a limit on handgun purchases and sales in cities of the first class; establishing the Violence Prevention Fund; and further providing for limitation on the regulation of firearms and ammunition and for limitation on municipal powers.

    SB191 An Act amending Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, providing for a limit on handgun purchases and sales and establishing the Violence Prevention Fund.

    SB190 This bill would allow judges, the Pennsylvania State Police, mental health review officers, and county mental health administrators to share all documents concerning mental health treatment with the FBI.

    HB122 An Act amending the act of March 10, 1949 (P.L.30, No.14), known as the Public School Code of 1949, providing for trained school personnel.

    SB189 An Act amending Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, prohibiting persons ordered to undergo involuntary mental health treatment on an outpatient basis from owning firearms.

    House Bill 335 This bill would add a mental health question relating to if someone has "ever been treated".

    Interesting enough, there are a bunch of pro-gun bills as well as the anti-gun bills being floated in CT.

    After Sandy Hook the governor of MI veto'd a no gun free zone bill for a level 2 ccw. Other than that, I think nothing for MI.

    A clarification about post #38. In VA you CAN carry on school grounds if you are dropping off or picking up student/students but only under these conditions. Keep up the good work VCDL

    I'm unaware of anything new that is happening in New York; after all, the only thing that hasn't been enacted---yet---is door to door confiscation. I figure we're safe for at least another year.

    You FORGOT this one:

    Regular Session 2013-2014
    House Bill 357

    Short Title: An Act providing that any Federal law which attempts to register, restrict or ban a firearm or to limit the size of a magazine of a firearm in this Commonwealth shall be unenforceable in this Commonwealth; and imposing penalties.

    Prime Sponsor: Representative METCALFE

    Last Action: Referred to JUDICIARY, Jan. 25, 2013 [House]

    Memo: Right to Bear Arms Protection Act

    You also forgot this:

    Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution:

    I think here in the midwest, barring CO,MN and WI, you stand a better chance of getting a bill passed saying that you HAVE to own a AR15, along with several 30 rd mags.

    I'll affirm this & go a step further. New proposed legislation would enshrine in our state constitution the right of all citizens to carry anywhere law enforcement does except fed govt buildings. I believe there is also talk of making it policy to ignore fed gun bans in NC also.

    My fellow Arkies didn't give specifics.

    The AR lege passed a bill allowing churches to decide if concealed carry is OK. Before it was illegal in church.

    They also passed a bill keeping permit holder info confidential so no more leftist rags publishing names of gun owners. This happened here a couple years ago and at that time the Dem controlled leg refused to act. Now the GOP led leg came through.

    There is a bill to allow college employees to carry on campus but I have not heard anything about its status.
