Please SUPPORT SB 372!
As a constituent, I urge you to SUPPORT SB 372, Senator Chafin's bill to repeal 18.2-283, an antiquated law that requires an undefined standard of "good and sufficient reason" to carry a firearm into a place of worship during a service. This law interferes with a church's ability to decide how to handle its own security. Churches are private property and the Commonwealth has no compelling reason to dictate to churches if guns can be carried there and by whom. Churches will still be able to prohibit or limit the carry of firearms using trespass laws, which has a Class 1 misdemeanor penalty vs the Class 4 misdemeanor penalty for 18.2-283. Let me know how you plan to vote on this important bill, which protects all churches.
