Senator Tom Garrett Offers Valentines Day Utah Concealed Carry Permit Class for 22nd Senate District and 5th Congressional District Constituents

As gun rights and concealed carry reciprocity in the future hang in uncertainty, Senator Garrett takes steps to benefit gun owners immediately with no cost to constituents.

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA – In a statement released today, State Senator Tom Garrett (R-Buckingham) reinforced his commitment to the Second Amendment in the face of continued uncertainty over the  reciprocity of Virginia’s concealed carry permits after steps taken by the Attorney General’s Office and the State Superintendent of the Virginia State Police to void the honoring of more than 25 states’ concealed carry permits here in the Commonwealth, saying:
“When Mark Herring unilaterally attacked our 2nd Amendment rights, we filed the first bill, SB178 to reverse his unparalleled gun grab. Short of Constitutional Carry, which I co-patroned and which died at the hands of Democrat Ralph Northam, a Utah permit is the best option. For this reason we are inviting citizens to attend for free, our Utah permit training.”
The class will be held at Gilmer Hall on the campus of Hampden Sydney, on Sunday, February 14th, from 2pm to 730pm, and will be taught by VCDL President Philip Van Cleave. Garrett said:
“We are delighted to welcome VCDL President Philip Van Cleave as our Utah permit instructor on the 14th.”
Constituents are encouraged to sign up on Garrett’s facebook page and website via the Eventbrite link there. Registration will be limited to the first 100 constituents that sign up.
