Be still my beating heart! A bill has been introduced in Maryland to recognize Virginia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania concealed handgun permits! It may be an uphill battle, but that's never stopped us before. Let's all email the committee that is going to be hearing that bill (it is scheduled to be heard on January 26th). To send an email to the committee,

Fill in your name, your email address, and select all of the names of the Delegates in the email list by clicking on the first name, scrolling down and, while holding your shift key down, clicking on the last name in the list.

For the email subject line put: Support HB 52! Suggested email message: Please support HB 52! As a Virginia concealed handgun permit holder, I would definitely visit Maryland more often and stay longer if Maryland would recognize my permit. Being able to protect myself and my family is very important to me.

FYI...If you have taken handgun training with me (and got a certificate) that will enable you to get a Virginia NON RESIDENT Permit!

I can also take prints and pictures!
