How to kill a bill without a vote, part 2

with 3 comments

After dispatching several gun safety measures last week, the Firearms subcommittee of Militia, Police, and Public Safety met again last night. Their first victim was Del. Chuck Caputo’s HB734, which would prohibit guns in public libraries. With only three members present – Republicans Tommy Wright, Scott Lingamfelter, and Morgan Griffith – the measure died when no one made a motion.

Del. Caputo’s HB746, which would keep guns out of child day care centers, met the same fate shortly after.

  1. Those downstate Republicans (and maybe a few rural Democrats) sure don’t want to be on record voting against that bill. This way nobody had to vote against it, even those who sat quietly not making a motion. It’s time for a change in this Commonwealth!
