Legislation by Del. Patrick Hope (D-47th) tying concealed-handgun permits to prompt payment of child support was killed Jan. 29 in the House of Delegates.

The bill provided for the revocation of a concealed-handgun permit if an individual was delinquent by more than 90 days or $5,000 in child-support payments, or failed to comply with a subpoena, summons or warrant related to paternity or child-support proceedings.

The measure was sent to the House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety, where it died in subcommittee.
