·         VIRGINIA COMMITTEE VOTES TO REPEAL ONE-GUN-A-MONTH LAW . . . The Virginia House of Delegates Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee voted 15-6 to repeal Virginia's one-gun-a-month law. The proposed legislation (HB 49), which Gov. Bob McDonnell indicated he would sign into law, is now headed to the full House of Delegates for a vote as early as tomorrow. NSSF supports the repeal of the one-gun-a-month law and is encouraging all Virginia gun owners to contact their state delegate today, urging him or her to support this commonsense measure. Read more in NSSF's Keane Insights blog.

·         ANTI-GUN BILLS INTRODUCED IN ILLINOIS . . . Efforts are under way in the Illinois Senate to pass firearms-microstamping legislation (SB 3425), while in the Illinois House a bill (HB 180) has been introduced that would establish a state-based licensing system for FFLs selling handguns. NSSF has sent letters of opposition on behalf of itself and the Illinois Association of Firearms Retailers for both bills. NSSF will also be issuing a legislative alert urging all sportsmen and gun owners to voice their opposition to these anti-gun / anti-business bills. Learn more.

·         MISSISSIPPI BILL WOULD ESTABLISH FIREARMS SALES-TAX HOLIDAY . . . State Rep. Warner McBride (D-Courtland) has introduced legislation (HB 1207) in Mississippi that would exempt firearms and ammunition sold over Labor Day weekend from state sales tax. NSSF is working with an economist to develop data in support of such tax-free holidays. This data would be used to encourage the introduction and passage of similar legislation in other states. Currently, tax-holiday legislation is pending in Kentucky, Oklahoma and Missouri.

·         'BLOOMBERG BILL' INTRODUCED IN WEST VIRGINIA . . . West Virginia State Sen. Jeffrey Kessler is proposing legislation to ban Mayor Bloomberg-like sting operations of West Virginia firearms retailers. In 2006, the New York City mayor hired private investigators to run undercover sting operations against out-of-state firearms dealers. These stings, which were conducted without the knowledge of ATF or Mayor Bloomberg's own police department, resulted in a written reprimand from the U.S. Department of Justice. The mayor's actions interfered with as many as 18 ongoing criminal investigations, jeopardizing the lives of law enforcement officers, witnesses and others.
