Senate Bill 67, which was sponsored by Sen. Bill Stanley (R-20). SB67, which was passed in the House of Delegates by 72 to 24 vote, removes the option for localities to require concealed carry permit applicants to submit fingerprints with the application.
Senate Bill 323 was drafted by the NRA and sponsored by Sen. Bill Carrico (R-40). SB323 passed by a 64 to 32 vote and would allow citizens to buy more than one handgun in a 30-day period.
Senate Bill 563, sponsored by Sen. Frank Ruff (R-15) and relates to concealed carry permit application. The bill, which passed by a 79 to 20 vote, allows applications to be sent in through mail and would restrict the clerk and the circuit court from requiring or requesting information beyond that which is allowed on the permit application.
