Page numbers refer to original locations in Edition 5 (the prior edition).

Notes: References below to the “new gun definition” refer to the recent phrase, “explosion of a combustible material,” that describes how a projectile is expelled, and which has been uniformly enacted to standardize the statutes. “Words to numerals” refers to numerous changes in statute such as “ten” to “10,” or “one dollar” to “$1,” and similar typography. Every occurrence of “ Immigration and Naturalization Service” is changed to “United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.”

There is an awful lot of new material here. The state legislature has been extremely busy making changes to the gun laws. Thanks to an active team of pro-rights supporters, much of it is for the better. But this much change makes it clear how difficult it is becoming to know and follow the gun laws. The descriptions below are broad summaries -- you must look at the actual bills to get the full meanings, or get the latest edition (Edition 6) of The Virginia Gun Owner's Guide, where everything is organized and described in plain English.
