Veterans committee passes Jones’ resolution to protect 2nd amendment rights

Senate Democratic Floor Leader Ray S. Jones’ legislation urging the Governor of Virginia and the Virginia Attorney General to restore reciprocal recognition of concealed carry weapons licenses from Kentucky is making its way through the legislative process. 

Senate Joint Resolution 36, which is the result of the Commonwealth of Virginia’s recent decision to cease recognition of concealed deadly weapon licenses from Kentucky and 24 other states, was passed today by the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs, and Public Protection Committee.  Jones, D-Pikeville, said that law abiding citizens should have a way to protect themselves. 

SJR 36 now moves to the full Senate for further consideration.
