VA to restore handgun reciprocity in deal with Republicans

Republican concessions to restore the reciprocity
If an individual’s Virginia concealed-carry permit is revoked, a permit from another state will not be honored in Virginia — a practice known as “state shopping.”

State police must be present at all gun shows to administer background checks in private sales of guns on a voluntary basis.

Dinstar:

Saw this someplace else today. Good news for us, I think, here in OH.

However, the State Police at the gun shows to administer voluntary background checks is a "feel good".

The people who will obtain guns regardless of the law won't bother.... For the rest of us, I'd say that anybody who'd voluntarily submit to the check is not the problem. It's just an inconvenience.

That said, I'd prefer to have the option - the Courts are tending to favor the "belt and suspenders" coverage in many cases.

The advantage to us LAC's is some sort of proof that the recipient is legal. Since the Courts have been accepting cases where a gun is misused by a buyer should make the seller liable. That this is nonsense may not occur to some anti's. Having the protection of a check might be of value. BUT, voluntary compliance could easily get to "required", and we don't need that.

Regards,
Stu
