SB698 will be heard in committee next Wednesday, January 15, 2003 at 2:00 pm in Senate Room A of the General Assembly Building. We need MANY bodies there to let the committee members know that this bill has wide and diverse support. If you are able to come to show support, please do so. We anticipate that the other side will be well represented and we need to let the legislators know that common sense people want common sense legislation in Virginia.

SB698 will require that all gun show private sales go through a dealer. The show management and organizers, not to mention the private seller, face felony charges if they violate the law. This is just the first step to banning all private sales in Virginia.
Note that the show promoter is responsible for overseeing activities that occur in the parking lot of the show... never mind that several gun shows are held in places like shopping centers with people entering and leaving who are not show attendees.

The best deals at the gunshows are from private sellers - why would anyone want to ban private sales?
VAHV is a pretty silly group - do you really think there are many gun control supporters on Free Republic?

Well, first off, give a conservative group a liberal name, and then post vague, brief messages, and that's what you get: confusion.
I just emailed my VA Senator and said vote NO on this bill...if we will all do this, this bill will be DOA on the Senate floor!
To arms, FREEPERS!
The group is a commie/lib group - someone else posted their
