Governor Terry McAuliffe
House Bill 1582 reflects an incomplete understanding of weapons qualification practices within our military and is an unwarranted expansion in the number of people allowed to carry handguns in the Commonwealth. It would do nothing to protect the safety of our citizens.
It would allow any person 18 years of age or older and on active military duty or honorably discharged from the United States Armed Forces or the Virginia National Guard who has completed basic training to apply for a concealed handgun permit.

Ever since the Washington Post endorsed Deeds he has been gaining momentum. Deeds is invigorating his loyal supporters and capturing the undecided.
CHARLOTTESVILLE – Virginia gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds has taken the lead from Terry McAuliffe in the latest Public Policy poll.
According to the PPP poll, Creigh has jumped 7 points in the polls in 10 days and Terry has dropped 5 points.
Once again, we have defied the odds and this poll confirms what we’ve been saying all along–this nomination is not for sale — and that Creigh is the one Democrat most prepared to be Governor” said Joe Abbey, campaign manager for Deeds for Virginia. “But I can assure you, no one on our campaign is taking anything for granted. It’s a sprint to the finish on June 9 and we need everyone’s help. And this poll reflects the thousands of Virginians that are joining our grassroots campaign because they know that Creigh is the Democrat most prepared to carry on the Warner-Kaine legacy.”
PPP Poll Numbers:
Deeds: 27 – McAuliffe: 24 – Moran: 22
According to PPP, “nevertheless the momentum continues to be on Deeds’ side. Over the last month he has gone from 14% to 20% to 27% in the polls while McAuliffe has dropped from 30% to 29% to 24% and Moran has pretty much stayed in place, polling twice at 20% and now up to 22%.”
