Protect churches - support repealing 18.2-283 in 2019!
As a constituent, I urge you to SUPPORT repealing 18.2-283, an antiquated Blue law that requires an undefined standard of "good and sufficient reason" to carry a firearm into a place of worship DURING A SERVICE. 18.2-283 interferes with a church's ability to decide how to handle its own security. Churches are private property and the Commonwealth has no business limiting a church's security options. Churches will continue to be able to prohibit or limit the carry of firearms using trespass laws with 18.2-283 repealed. Trespass has a Class 1 misdemeanor penalty for a violation, while it is only a Class 4 misdemeanor penalty for a violation of 18.2-283.
