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

HAVE EVER DONE IN ORDER TO PROVE THAT THEY KNOW HOW TO HANDLE A WEAPON AND WENT THROUGH THE TRAINING TO PROVE THEY CAN BE TRUSTED WITH IT. AGAIN, IF WE SEND THEM OVERSEAS TO DEFEND ALL OF OUR RIGHTS TO GET A CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT I THINK THEY ALSO PROVE THEY ARE TRUSTWORTHY THAT RESPECT AS IF THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH AND WELL. BEEN CONVICTED OF SOMETHING ADDITIONAL, GREAT, TREAT IT LIKE THAT THEN. NOT THAT YOU ARE WORRIED THEY MIGHT COMMIT SUICIDE. IF THEY HAVE DONE SOMETHING THEY HAVE BEEN GUILTY OF, FINE, TREAT THEM THAT WAY BUT LET'S NOT IDENTIFY THEM AS THAT MAKES THEM AN ADDITIONAL THREAT OR CONCERN. I WILL THINK THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH THE TRAINING AND DEMONSTRATED A DESIRE TO PROTECT OTHERS AND I THINK THAT THIS BILL IS PERFECTLY APPROPRIATE AND ADMIRES THEIR SERVICE. THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. [APPLAUSE]

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THE GENTLEMAN FROM PRINCE WILLIAM, MR. LINGAMFELTER.

Del. Scott Lingamfelter (R-Woodbridge): THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. BRIEFLY.
