Virginia's Oldest Gun Rights Organization

Virginia Gun Owners are under attack from Governor Terry McAuliffe and Attorney General Mark Herring!


In October, McAuliffe attacked our right to carry openly and concealed in state buildings.  In December, Herring unilaterally revoked recognition of concealed carry permits issued by 25 states.  VSSA needs you today to help push back against these attacks and restore our rights.  Please join VSSA or renew your membership today! And be sure to check this web site and the VSSA blog and Facebook page for legislative updates.  All blog post links appear on the right side of this web site.

Breaking!!! McAuliffe throws Herring under the bus on reciprocity!!!


The goals of VSSA are to:

  • unite shooters, hunters, sportsmen, collectors and all other law abiding firearms enthusiasts to promote the safe and responsible use of firearms;
  • promote the development of the shooting sports and the facilities necessary to the shooting sports; and,
  • provide a united voice at all levels of government to defend the shooting sports, and firearms ownership.
