Man they are really starting early this year and from the look of it it is going to be a busy year for firearm legislation. It also looks like South Carolina is trying to become the most gun friendly state in the country.

These are all pre-files at this point but valid 2015 proposed legislation none the less

Virginia:

HB1359 would make carry permits for residents lifetime (currently they need to be renewed every 5 years)

SB689 is the companion bill to HB1359

SB694 would require background checks on all firearms sold at shows.

HB1329 would open up reciprocity to anyone carrying another state permit as long as they have photo id from that state

Proposed Virginia Gun Laws :: American Gun Owners Alliance

South Carolina:

S0105 is called the "south Carolina Constitutional Carry Act Of 2015" and that's exactly what it would do.

S0113 would add an exception to carrying a firearm to "a person who served on active duty for a period of more than one hundred eighty days and was discharged or released from active duty with an honorable discharge."

S0126 is called the "South Carolina Firearms Freedom Act" providing that any firearm built and held in the state is exempt from federal laws

S0036 Would set up preemption in the state

S0003 would make it illegal for a resident to own, possess or carry a firearm or ammunition if they have been convicted of domestic violence

S0088 would allow students and faculty to possess a firearm on campus but would also allow those schools to post signs stating 'No Concealable Weapons Allowed'

S0110 would make it so a new resident of the state that holds a permit recognized by the state will remain valid until the permit expires

S0109 would remove all fees for a concealed carry license

S0066 would make it legal to kill any animal during any season in self defense, defence of another or defence of a domestic animal

S0125 is called the "Second Amendment Preservation Act" essentually nullifying any federal firearm law the state deems unconstitutional

S0095 would allows schools to offer an elective course in firearm marksmanship

S0117 would make it that firearms and ammunition 'Possessed Or Manufactured And Retained In South Carolina' is exempt from 'Federal Regulation Under The Commerce Clause Of The Constitution Of The United State'

Kentucky:

HB13 would nullify all federal firearm laws restricting ownership or possession of firearm by Kentucky residents

SB14 would add 'no duty to retreat' to current law relating to defense of oneself

Proposed Kentucky Gun Laws :: American Gun Owners Alliance

Oklahoma SB10 would make all firearms and ammunition manufacturered and kept within the state borders exempt from federal law

That's it? I'm disappointed in you Texas...
Oh trust me, this is just the beginning of a HUGE list that will be coming out over the next 2 months (most legislatures don't come back until early February)

And actually these are the earliest pre-filings we have seen in years, normally we don't see these until late December

I know that Texas is writing an Open Carry bill right now, that the governor-elect said he will happily sign.

I also heard about another push for Constitutional Carry which would be PHENOMENAL!
I don't know the bill number, but there's also something in the works that makes it criminal for officers sworn in Texas to enforce federal gun control laws. I imagine this is being done to protect our LE from prosecution in refusing to enforce Dear Leader's martial law.
