Today, January 12th, the Virginia General Assembly begins the 2022 legislative session. The anti-gun majority in the House of Delegates, previously bought and paid for by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is no longer in power. Once again, there is a pro-Second Amendment majority in the House.
Lawmakers have already filed a number of bills to undo the damage wrought over the past two years, including:
- To protect Virginians from localities creating a confusing patchwork of anti-gun ordinances across the state,
- To reduce areas where law-abiding citizens are left disarmed and defenseless, and
- To eliminate the fee for a concealed handgun permit in order to expand access to this fundamental right to all law-abiding citizens, regardless of economic means.
