Governor Terry McAuliffe today proposed amendments to Senate Bill 1023, which would restore Virginia’s One-Handgun-a-Month law that was repealed by Governor McDonnell in 2012.
Senate Bill 1023 prohibits sharing of information regarding Virginia concealed handgun permits in the Virginia Criminal Information Network with law enforcement in states that do not recognize a Virginia concealed handgun permit as valid in the state. The bill requires the Department of State Police to maintain and publish online a list of states that recognize a Virginia concealed handgun permit as valid in the state. The bill does not create a private cause of action.
Thursday, September 24th, Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor Jody Wagner will take part in an on-line discussion at the Not Larry Sabato blog. Wagner had originally been scheduled to take part in a debate sponsored by the Prince William 100 on Thursday. However, earlier in the week, the Bolling campaign pulled out of the debate. In its place, Wagner will have a discussion with voters about her record as Treasurer and Secretary of Finance, as well as her plans to create new jobs, grow the economy, and invest in education.
Following Bill Bolling’s decision to withdraw from this Thursday’s Prince William 100 Lt. Governor’s debate, Virginians for Wagner is releasing a video asking: Where has Bill Bolling been for four years?
Wagner’s campaign claims that Bolling has attended less than 10% of the meetings of the boards and commissions on which the Lt. Governor serves or is asked to attend.
