Good News

Virginia's new Attorney-General was scrapping reciprocity agreements with 25 states on concealed carry.  Bloomberg bought himself an A-G one in the last election.  This reveals:
New details revealed on Friday show the gun carry deal between Virginia Republicans and Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D.) is more expansive than first reported.

The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), one of the state’s leading gun rights groups, said in an email to its members that the deal would not only restore the 25 reciprocity deals Attorney General Mark R. Herring (D.) had planned to eliminate but also expand Virginia’s recognition of gun carry permits to all states.

The deal also pushes back the attorney general’s reciprocity deadline from Feb. 1 to March 1 and will require the attorney general’s office to enter into any reciprocity agreement offered by any other state, removing the discretion that allowed Herring’s unilateral action.

  1. VCDL is one of the best-organized and most effective state-level defenders of the Second Amendment.

    I suspect this reversal happened in part because of VCDL's annual Lobby Day at the Virginia state house, this year on 18 January.
