Each year VSSA's lobbying team is at the General Assembly everyday working with legislators to defeat bad bills and pass good bills. By the time the legislators walk into a subcommittee or committee meeting, they have met with your lobbying team and know the VSSA position on every bill. You may not see our name in the newspaper or TV news as having stood up in committee to address a bill but rest assured, the committee members know our position and we are confident at the time the committee meets that your rights will be protected by the Delegates and State Senators.
The 2017 Virginia General Assembly adjouned Sine Die on February 25, 2017. Pro-gun bills of interest to gun owners this session included Constitutional Carry, bills to reduce the cost of applying and renewing concealed handgun permits, and bills that would allow victims of domestic violence that have an active protective order to carry concealed for 45 days without a permit until their permit application is approved and received. There was also a bill again this year that would prohibit the sharing of concealed carry permit holder information with law enforcement in states that do not have reciprocity with Virginia. The usual anti-gun bills were introduced again this year including a bill to reinstate handgun rationing, a bill requiring FFLS to carry so-called "smart guns", "universal" background check bills, and bills that would prohibit carrying concealed in a public library. The VSSA legislative team was on the ground talking to legislators and representing Virginia's gun owners at committee meetings. And those bills were defeated.
