Governor Tim Kaine (D) is currently considering two critically important self-defense bills (Senate Bill 476 and Senate Bill 436) that recently passed both chambers of the General Assembly.
SB476, authored by State Senator Emmett Hanger (R-24), allows restaurant owners to decide whether or not they will allow concealed carry permit holders to carry a firearm for self-defense while dining in their restaurants. SB436, authored by State Senator Jill Vogel (R-27), allows law-abiding citizens who do not possess a permit to carry to store a handgun in a locked compartment or container in their vehicle or boat.
Please contact Governor Kaine today at (804) 786-2211 and strongly encourage him to protect your right to self-defense by signing SB476 and SB436!
