Virginia Reverses New Concealed-Carry Restrictions, Governor and Legislature Compromise on Gun Shows

February 02, 2016  | 

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and state Republican leaders have announced a rare bipartisan compromise on gun laws for the state.

It reverses Virginia's recent decision to stop recognizing concealed-handgun permits from 25 states that have less stringent gun permit laws. That decision had been announced by Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring in December and had not yet taken effect.

In exchange, the deal requires state police "to be present at every firearms show in the Commonwealth to perform background checks on a voluntary basis." It also prevents anyone with a protective order for domestic abuse from possessing a firearm, NPR reports.

"Protecting reciprocity for Virginia's law-abiding citizens was a major priority for the House of Delegates," Republican Speaker William Howell says in the press statement. "We are also sending a clear signal about the mutual willingness of both parties to protect victims of domestic violence."
