New Change to Virginia's Gun Law will take effect on July of 2012
New change to our current Virginia gun law will take effect on July 1st, 2012. As of right now, in the State of Virginia, an individual with a concealed gun permit may purchase multiple handguns in a period of one month, while a non-licensed individual may only buy one handgun during the same period of time. The new change in the gun law, starting on July 1st, 2012, will allow non-licensed individuals to purchase multiple handguns in a one month period of time. This is a major mile stone in favor of our constitution's second amendment rights in Virginia.

Interlock devices for DUI offenses have been a hot topic recently in Virginia and throughout the country. In fact, we previously discussed the pros and cons of new Virginia legislation that will require ignition interlock devices for first-time DUI offenders.
The new law, which was passed quickly by legislators, will go into effect in July and is expected to quadruple the number of Virginia residents required to install ignition interlock devices in their vehicles. That means about 18,000 people statewide will have to pay $480 for the installation of the device, which will stay in people's cars for six...
