Description

Concealed handgun permits; reciprocity. Requires the General Assembly, in consultation with the Office of the Attorney General, to determine whether states meet the statutory qualifications for Virginia to recognize the concealed handgun permit of a person from another state. Under current law, this function is performed by the Superintendent of State Police in consultation with the Office of the Attorney General. The bill also requires the Superintendent of State Police to enter into agreements for reciprocal recognition with any state that qualifies. Read the Bill »
