Summary as passed House: (all summaries)
Reporting of certain acts by school authorities to law enforcement. Expands the enumerated activities that school principals must report to local law enforcement by providing that reportable offenses involving "firearms" on school property address any weapon prohibited on school property or at a school-sponsored activity pursuant to 18.2-308.1, as well as (i) any weapon, including a starter gun, that will, or is designed or may readily be converted to, expel single or multiple projectiles by the action of an explosion of a combustible material; (ii) the frame or receiver of any such weapon; (iii) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or (iv) any destructive device. "Firearm" shall not include any weapon in which ammunition may be discharged by pneumatic pressure. By linking the definition of "firearm" to the definition in 22.1-277.07 (Gun-Free Schools), the measure captures possession of knives and other weapons.
