    I did contact Peterson. He responded with his concerns over the vagueness of the bill, but immediately crowed about the passage of all of the others. I think the moderates realized that this bill was "A Bridge Too Far", and punted until the fervor died down. Therefore, we must not relent, and we must stay active.

    Update and action request from VCDL below...there are some bad bills.

    1. Bills that changed status today
    2. Bills that have passed both the House and Senate and will now head to the Governor's desk to possibly be signed into law

    5. Bills that have not yet been voted on by both Senate and House

    2. Bills that have passed both the House and Senate and will now head to the Governor's desk to possibly be signed into law
    HB 9 - lost/stolen firearms must be reported in 48 hours - time to report increased from 24 to 48 hours.
    SB 14 - bans possession of bump stocks. Binary triggers, trigger cranks, etc. are not affected.
    SB 35 - allows locates to create their own gun laws. Restricted as to where localities can control guns: government buildings, parks, recreation and community centers, permitted events and surrounding roads.
    SB 173 - allows CHP holders to have a stun-weapon in their vehicle while on K-12 school grounds.
    SB 240 - Red Flag law - additional protections for search warrants and wrongful accusations were added.
    HB 264 - Eliminates online training and possibly NRA instructors - language eliminating training from NRA instructors was removed from final bill. Bill now only eliminates online training to get a CHP.
    SB 268 - No sales tax on gun safes less than $1,500.

    HB 1083 - class 1 misdemeanor for younger than 14-years-old getting access to a loaded firearm in a reckless manner. Only change to current law is raising the penalty from a Class 3 misdemeanor to a Class 1 misdemeanor.
    3. Bills that are in a conference committee
    SB 69 - One Handgun a Month. Senate Conferees: Senators Locke, Deeds, Stuart. House Conferees: no conferees assigned yet.
    SB 263 - Eliminates online training and possibly NRA instructors. Senate Conferees: Senators Bell, Deeds, and Stuart. House Conferees: Lopez, Hope, Wright.
    SB 593 - Licensed daycare facilities to store firearms unloaded and locked up. Senate Conferees: Senators Hanger, McClellan, and Stuart. House Conferees: Delegates Hope, Bourne, Coyner.
    HB 600 - Licensed daycare facilities to store firearms unloaded and locked up. House rejected Senate substitute. No conferees assigned yet.
    HB 888 - No sales tax for purchases of a gun safe under $1,500. Senate Conferees: Bell, Boysko, Ebbin. House Conferees: Hurt, Sullivan, Robinson.
    4. Bills that passed both bodies, but different (modified by opposite body in some way)
    These bills can go in two different directions. One body can accept the other body's changes and then the bill is effectively passed and heads to the Governor's desk. One or both bodies can demand their version of the bill and then the bill heads to a conference committee of 6 people (3 from each body) to try to work out a compromise. If no compromise is worked out or either body rejects the compromise, the bill is dead.

    SB 70 - Universal Background Checks - passed House with substitute
    SB 71 - daycare/preschool become gun-free zones - passed House with substitute
    SB 479 - protective orders take away gun rights while in effect - passed House with substitute

    HB 2 - Universal Background Checks - House rejected Senate substitute.
    HB 674 - Red Flag law - passed Senate with substitute.
    HB 812 - One Handgun a Month - passed Senate with substitute.
    5. Bills that have not yet been voted on by both Senate and House
    SB 64 - makes two or more individuals brandishing with the intent and purpose of intimidating others a felony - passed out of committee and headed to House Floor.
    6. ACTION ITEM: Kill bills currently in conference committee

    We seemed to have lost some support and momentum. I urge Ya'all to step it. Lot of work still to be done.

    Remember that the Antis will be trying to subvert the rights of Virginians and Americans until their Senate and House of Delegates go home for the year. Then they'll make another run at infringing upon the 2nd again ...and another ... until they're removed from office.

    We need to support the pro2A forces until these Anti politicians aren't holding office in VA.
