Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Last week, state Representative Kathleen Willis filed House Amendment 8 to House Bill 1016, another anti-gun amendment that seeks to over-regulate gun dealers and impose restrictions that could potentially force gun stores to close.
House Bill 1016 has been sent to the House floor and could be considered at any time.
Your NRA-ILA continues to outright oppose House Bill 1016 and any anti-gun amendment proposed.
Please continue to contact your state Representative and politely urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 1016.
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) licenses and closely monitors all FFLs and strictly enforces any violations of federal law. HB 1016 goes far beyond federal law in its mandatory regulations and red tape imposed at the state level that it would almost assuredly force the closure of most firearm dealers, and prevent prospective owners from opening new ones.
This legislation seeks to create so many department divisions, anti-gun 5-member licensing boards, and licensing fees that dealers would be forced to close through oversight by anti-gun appointees or would be priced out of business.
Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Representative and politely urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 1016 in any form.
