Virginia Senate Bill 1299 and House Bill 1852 would allow a person under the protection of an unexpired protection order to carry a concealed handgun for 45 days after the order was issued. This would allow the victim sufficient time to apply for a concealed carry permit. Virginia Senate Bill 1023 would prohibit the sharing of information about concealed handgun permits with any state that does not recognize Virginia permits. Dave Adams of the Virginia Shooting Sport Association says that this is the second time around for the important legislation. Governor Terry McAuliffe vetoed the domestic violence-related bills, citing a lack of training. The information sharing legislation forbids states like Maryland or New Jersey from going on fishing expeditions against gun owners. Originally aired on Cam & Co 02/03/17.
