4 Gun Control Bills Move Forward in Virginia’s General Assembly

Virginia’s General Assembly on Monday had four gun-control bills win approval. This “sets the stage” for a controversial argument between gun-rights advocates and Democratic lawmakers “who have vowed to bring comprehensive changes to the state.”

Washington Post reported that gun rights activists swarmed the Capitol, where firearms were banned last week. The Senate Judiciary Committee advanced most of the gun legislation proposed by Democrats.

According to Fox News, the bills that “sailed through the state’s Judiciary Committee would require background checks on all firearms purchases, allow law enforcement to temporarily remove guns from people deemed to be a risk to themselves or others, limit handgun purchases to one a month, and let localities decide whether to ban weapons from certain events.”

The new measures “will make it harder for law-abiding Virginians to protect themselves, while doing nothing to stop criminals,” said the National Rifle Association.

A report by Fox News said that “one measure that didn’t pass would have expanded the definition of ‘assault firearms’ under Virginia law.” “We are pleased one of the most egregious gun confiscation bills was pulled from consideration. The NRA will continue to work with our lawmakers to find solutions that address the root cause of violent crime, rather than punishing honest, hardworking Virginians,” said NRA spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen.

NBC Washington reported that “the measures approved Monday move on to the full Senate. Similar bills will be proposed and voted on in the House as well.”

    So where is the NRA in this. They should have been front and center.

    • Dave says:

      The NRA is not a pro 2A pro gun organization anymore

      • John says:

        NRA can’t do much if the People vote in Democrats!

        • Erik D Brazzale says:

          Do you live in Virginia? The last time we had elections I had a conservative to vote for. This last election they changed the districts so all I had to vote for was an anti second amendment democrat. 2 democrats ran unopposed. Needless I did not vote for them but they still won by default. Not much choice there when they change the district so you can’t vote for your rights.

        • Realist 4 sure says:


          The galling thing is how the SCOTUS manages to screw this simple issue up.
          Abortion on demand? Legal and ubiquitous henceforth!
          Gay marriage? Legal in every state and city without question!

          Neither are mentioned specifically in the Bill of Rights. But the second Amendment is barely upheld and localities are free to limit without issue. Gun ownership is rapidly approaching “use it or lose it” status!

      You didn’t read the article?

  • Hunter says:

    John, I fully agree. If you vote for liberal’s or don’t vote at all, then you suffer your fate at their hands. Let’s hope folks in the Commonwealth get the memo for the next election.

  • Erik D Brazzale says:

    Just so everyone is aware. The Rights stripping Democrats did not strike the assault firearms bill. SB16 was stricken from being heard. HB 961 has taken its place. With this bill if you do not move the firearm out of Virginia, sell it to another citizen that can legally own it in another state, register it and get approved for a permit to own it, or you can give, yes give it as surrender it with no compensation to the state police. If you do not comply with those demands then you will be a class 6 felon. And you should read the bill. Only one characteristic on a centerfire semi auto rifle makes it an Assault firearm. If you have a detachable magazine, or a muzzle break, or a grip that stands out under the action to include thumbhole stocks, and the list goes on.

    • Lyn says:

      Which makes almost all guns not legal. People better get those dumb beam o RATs 🐀 out of office. So only bad guys will be able to kill rob you you can give the or die. Is what’s they say to you with this bill but they are protected with all the good guys with guns to protect them. Hitler is in your state at you govt. get them out 🇺🇸

  • Let the 2nd Civil War begin. Are you ready to make a stand. All the dematards should be charged with crimes against the constitution. Who will start charging these idiots for their crimes.

  • Karen Brown Cox says:

    What if an illegal has a gun and commits a crime? I guess they are protected in this sanctuary, communist state. How many illegals or foreigners vote in Va elections?

  • Fredh says:

    State laws on guns, do not supersede the Constitution and the Second Amendment. No state law supersedes the Constitution.

  • SBL says:

    As a child I knew what was happening when Hitler and his brown wearing men started taking “rights” away from Jews and others with the end being slavery, mass murder of innocent people, war and all the rest. If we are dumb enough to let these politicians – and others – take away the 2nd amendment rights then we are in for the worst time in American history!!! Hell isn’t hot enough for the likes of any politician – Democrat or others who push such garbage through laws that bind citizens from God given rights in the Constitution of the United States of America. Vote ’em out ASAP!
