        Are VA Dems Planning A “Gun Free Zone” On Lobby Day?

        Not sure if this made the radar yet, looks like the house is voting on “rules” prohibiting weapons in buildings they control.

        Rule 85. It is the policy of the Virginia House of Delegates to take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of every member, full and part-time employee, page, intern, visitor, and guest of the Virginia House of Delegates. In keeping with this commitment, the House Committee on Rules will establish, by majority vote, a formal policy on the ability of members, staff, guests, and visitors to bring firearms into the those areas under the legal authority of the House of Delegates including, but not limited to, the Capitol, the House Chamber, and the Pocahontas Building. The Committee may amend the policy, which may or may not include a blanket prohibition, from time to time as appropriate. Copies of the approved policy and any changes or amendments thereof will be provided to every member, full and part-time employee, page, and intern of the Virginia House of Delegates and be posted for the members of the public.

        For the moment I’d assume this applies to all CCW

        Virginia lawmakers are set to vote Friday on whether to ban guns at the state Capitol.

        Democratic leaders in the House and Senate have set a meeting to vote on new rules that are widely expected to include a proposed new gun ban for the Capitol and a legislative office building.

            As I understand it, they snuck it through at the last moment when it was to late to do anything about it too.
            What a surprise. (sarc)
            IMHO, this is probably a portent of how they plan to handle other bills/proposals as well.
            Again, not like that should surprise anyone, not the first time they’ve pulled sneaky votes like this, but still…
            I think some people are expecting to change the course more than they really will, come lobby day.

              “They just did it, banned carry inside the Capitol Building, for everyone.”

              For everyone except duly sworn, badged, and armed agents of the government.

                People can’t carry inside the state capitol or capitol annex in KY. Been this way for years.
