General Assembly to Discuss Gun Issues

Posted:

Richmond, VA - Virginia gun control advocates are planning a vigil for victims of gun violence Monday at the State Capitol.

The Virginia Center for Public Safety is encouraging legislators to toughen the state's gun laws. But it will be a tough fight with a Republican controlled General Assembly.

Legislation already has been filed to allow any citizen to carry a concealed weapon without a permit.

Other gun-friendly measures are expected, including one to prohibit colleges and universities from barring gun possession on campuses.
