Description

Reorganizing and recodifying the law related to carrying concealed weapons and concealed handgun permits. Reorganizes the existing 18.2-308 into a new Article 6.1 in Chapter 7 of Title 18.2. The new article creates separate, discrete sections to address the general criminal prohibition against carrying concealed weapons; the requirements for applying for a concealed handgun permit; the process the circuit court follows in reviewing, issuing, and denying permits; the appeals process procedures for nonresidents to obtain permits; the renewal process disqualifications; and other procedural issues currently addressed in 18.2-308. The bill also contains numerous technical amendments. This bill does not make any substantive changes to existing law. Read the Bill »
