Bill Allowing Guns in Virginia Airports Delayed a Year

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) A proposal to allow people to carry guns and other weapons into Virginia airport terminals has been postponed until next year.

The House Militia, Police and Public Safety committee agreed Friday to carry over Republican Del. Richard Anderson's bill to the 2013 legislative session.

The committee chairman, Republican Del. Scott Lingamfelter, said most of the panel's members probably agree with the bill's intent. But he said there are too many technical issues that can't be resolved before Tuesday's deadline for each chamber to act on its own legislation.

The committee also killed a bill allowing former prosecutors to carry a concealed weapon without a permit.

The panel unanimously endorsed a bill allowing county and city treasurers to carry weapons into courthouses.
