Virginia: Senate Passes Three Anti-Gun Bills

Thu, 01/16/2020 - 20:11
On Thursday, January 16th, the Virginia Senate voted to pass three of the anti-gun bills that the Senate Judiciary Committee approved on Monday. The fight is far from over! Dozens of other gun control bills from Michael Bloomberg’s wish-list have still not been taken up by a committee. Second Amendment supporters have demonstrated an unprecedented showing in support for our rights. It is critical that law-abiding citizens not back down and remain ready to oppose this agenda at every turn.

Alert! Florida REPUBLICAN Senators Vote for Massive Gun Control Bill

Wed, 01/15/2020 - 12:50
On Monday, 1/13/20, it happened again.  Senate President Bill Galvano picked a fight with Floridians who believe in the constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms. It is well known -- even by the media -- that in 2018 Bill Galvano orchestrated the creation and passage of the "Parkland Gun Control Bill."  And, of course, it didn't stop gun crime or criminals.  It only took away rights of law-abiding people.

Virginia: Bill Filed to Eliminate Right-to-Carry Permit Reciprocity!

Tue, 01/14/2020 - 07:08
In an unhinged effort to attack Virginians’ Second Amendment rights, one member of the Michael Bloomberg-bought General Assembly is willing to undermine a bipartisan policy advanced by the previous Democratic governor and target one of the state’s most law-abiding constituencies. H.B. 569, introduced by New Jersey native Dan Helmer (HD-40), targets Right-to-Carry permit holders by curtailing Virginia’s reciprocity regime.
