Description

Concealed weapon permits; concealed weapons other than firearms; furnishing certain weapons to minors; furnishing certain weapons. Replaces concealed handgun permits with concealed weapon permits, which authorize the holder to carry any weapon that is otherwise prohibited from being carried concealed, including handguns. The bill prohibits the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) from adopting a regulation preventing a person employed by an electronic security company or a locksmith from carrying a lawfully possessed weapon in the course of his duties when such person carries with him a valid concealed weapon permit. Current law prohibits DCJS from preventing such persons from carrying a firearm. The bill exempts any person who is carrying a nun chuck, throwing star, or weapon of like kind from the prohibition on carrying a concealed weapon while at, or going to or from, a martial arts training location or organized competition that uses such weapons. The bill increases the penalty for furnishing a ballistic knife to a minor from a Class 4 misdemeanor to a Class 1 misdemeanor and decriminalizes furnishing such weapon to an adult. The bill changes from any person to any minor the persons for whom it is a Class 4 misdemeanor to furnish with any blackjack, brass or metal knucks, throwing star, or weapon of like kind. The bill removes the presumption that possession of any such weapon is prima facie evidence of a person's intent to furnish it. Amends § 18.2-287.4, § 18.2-308, § 18.2-308.1, § 18.2-308.1:4, § 18.2-309, § 9.1-141, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »

WE ONLY WERE WILLING TO ALLOW IT IN THAT ONE NARROW CIRCUMSTANCE BECAUSE WE WERE TOLD THAT THERE WAS NO OTHER COMPOUND OR DRUG THAT COULD BE PRESCRIBED THAT ACTUALLY WORKED. WELL, THAT MAY BE A GOOD ARGUMENT, BUT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUFFERED FROM SOME OF THESE OTHER DISEASES, THEY HAVE SAID IN THE COURSE OF THEIR EFFORTS FOR LOBBY ON BEHALF OF CBD OIL, THAT WHILE THERE ARE OTHER DRUGS THAT WORK, THEY HAVE PROFOUNDLY DEVASTATING SIDE EFFECTS THAT MAKE THEM HORRIBLY SICK AND THAT VBD OIL DOES NOT AND THAT IT HAS HAS -- NOT ONLY DOES IT LACK SIDE EFFECTS, BUT IT ALSO HAS REALLY HEALING PROPERTIES AND IT HAS BENEFICIAL -- IT BENEFITS SOME OF THE OTHER NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE OTHER DRUGS THEY TAKE, FROM CHEMOTHERAPY AND OTHER DRUGS. SO THERE HAS BEEN SOME QUIBBLING OVER THE BREADTH OF THE LIST. SOME HAVE SAID NO, IT SHOULD JUST BE FOR CANCER OR JUST FOR CROHN'S DISEASE, BUT IF YOU HAVE SOMEBODY IN YOUR FAMILY WITH A DEBILITATING GENETIC DISORDER OR DYING A PAINFUL DEATH FROM ONE OF THESE DISEASES, WHICH ARE YOU GOING TO PICK? THAT WAS MY STRUGGLE. OF THE LIST PRESENTED TO ME, WHICH WAS I GOING TO PICK? IS MS SOMEHOW MORE LEGITIMATE THAN LOU GEHRIG'S DISEASE?
