Transcript

This is a transcript of the video clips in which this bill is discussed.

I THINK THAT THAT WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT USE AND AN EXCELLENT REASON THAT SOMEBODY MIGHT -- A NONVIOLENT FELON MIGHT WANT TO CARRY THE BLACK POWDER. A FURTHER QUESTION.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): SPEAKER: WILL THE GENTLEMAN Y

[Unknown]: I WOULD ASK THE GENTLEMAN, IELD? WOULD THAT NOT BE A CULTURAL USE OF AN ANTIQUE FIREARM? I THINK ABSOLUTELY IT WOULD BE. THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. THE GENTLEMAN MAY CONTINUE. AS I WAS SAYING, I THINK THAT THE GOAL OF PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR NONVIOLENT FELONS TO FULLY PARTICIPATE IN THEIR COMMUNITY IS A LAUDABLE ONE. I THINK, AND I'VE SAID FOR A LONG TIME, THAT WE OUGHT TO REMOVE BARRIERS FROM NONVIOLENT FELONS FOR FEELING LIKE FULL PARTICIPANTS IN THEIR COMMUNITY. I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES WE HAVE BEYOND CARRYING BLACK POWDER AND CARRYING ANTIQUE FIREARMS FOR NONVIOLENT FELONS TO FULLY PARTICIPATE IN THEIR CIVIC PROCESS, IN THE WORKFORCE, IN ALL KINDS OF WAYS THAT THEY CAN REALLY MAKE THEY FEEL SELLS MORE PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY AND REINTEGRATE. I WOULD HOPE IT WOULD BE THE PLEASURE OF THE BODY TO GO AHEAD
