2nd Amendment: VA AG Unilaterally Eliminates Gun Carry Reciprocity with 25 States

2nd Amendment: More “common sense” from gun grabbers

I’m calling this guy a red Herring.

This guy is no fan of the 2nd Amendment

Virginia Attorney General General Mark R. Herring is no fan of the 2nd Amendment

 

From the Washington Free Beacon:

The Virginia attorney general announced on Tuesday that he would unilaterally eliminate gun carry reciprocity agreements with 25 other states on Feb. 1, a move that will affect millions of Americans.

Attorney General Mark R. Herring, a Democrat, released a statement with the details of the action he is taking.

“To ensure Virginia’s law and safety standards for concealed handgun permits are applied evenly, consistently, and fairly, I have recommended the State Police terminate the reciprocity agreements with 25 states whose laws are not adequate to prevent issuance of a concealed handgun permit to individuals that Virginia would disqualify,” Herring said. “The State Police has accepted that recommendation and has begun sending letters to the 25 states informing them that as of February 1, their permits will no longer be recognized by Virginia.”

He called the move a “commonsense step” and said it would make Virginia police safer. “To me, this is a commonsense step that can help make Virginians and our law enforcement officers safer by ensuring that our concealed carry laws and safety standards apply to everyone in Virginia, whether they are a resident or a visitor,” he said. “Strong, consistent enforcement of Virginia’s laws and safety standards can prevent disqualified people who may be dangerous or irresponsible from utilizing a concealed handgun permit, and it’s what the law requires.”

The attorney general did not provide examples of those with out of state gun carry permits who have committed gun crimes in the Commonwealth.

  1. I smell a firestorm brewing. No politics here, as the AG promised there were to be none if elected. Blind sided everyone.
    Anyone for a boycott!

  2. I’m curious to know exactly how many people with out of state CCW permits have committed crimes in Virginia. Is there really a problem with out of state CCW permit holders gunning people down in that state? It seems like this is a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist.

    • Liberals do not need any data. They have an agenda to have guns banned. This is a start. Like Climate Change, they have their minds made up. Note that it caught everyone, including the VA Legislator with dropped draws. If Obama can shred the Constitution, he can too.

  3. If just one governor from one of those 25 states were to respond with a letter stating Virginia’s same sex marriage licenses would not be reciprocal, I think you would see the end of this pretty quickly. It’s the only way the dems will understand.

    • The VA Congress wants to strip funding of the Governor’s body guards. He gets the same protection as all of us, gun safe zones, aka, free range target practice.
      And, Teri has to rule on whether the 2nd covers reciprocity. I, like the POTUS , is NOT a Constitutional scholar!

    • But,i f that happens, then the Obama’s marriage would not be recognized. 🙂
