Virginians’ rights upheld by help of 2nd Amendment supporters. READ MORE
Thanks to Second Amendment supporters around the Commonwealth ceaselessly voicing their opposition to a sweeping gun ban, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 10-5 to reject House Bill 961 on February 17th. Bloomberg’s House majority in the General Assembly is not going to deliver their most coveted agenda item to their billionaire master.
House Bill 961 was a comprehensive ban on many commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, suppressors, and standard capacity magazines. The original bill sought to impose a licensing and registration scheme for citizens who wish to keep affected firearms they lawfully owned prior to the ban, with felony penalties for noncompliance. It also broadly banned any part that could be used to change a firearm into a banned configuration. While the House Public Safety Committee amended the bill to allow citizens to keep currently owned firearms and suppressors, there was no option for citizens to keep their lawfully acquired magazines with capacities greater than twelve rounds, forcing millions of Virginians to dispose of their property, become a criminal, or surrender them to the government.

This is only a delay. They will wait until the dust settles and re introduce it hoping that no one will notice. Voters stay alert and active and vote all associated with gun control out at the first opportunity.
Being a resident of The Peoples Republic of Kaliforniastan I can attest to your words Joe. Stay vigilante Virginians!
I am legal gun owner with a legal carry permit in PA. take away
our guns , I don’t think so. if they wanted to start another civil
war that would be the way. yes there are people out there that
should not have a gun because of there mental condition, but
to take it out on all of us would spell trouble. we have a right to
have legal arms. they need to think of another game plan.
I hate to say it but , blood will flow if the GOVERMENT tries come and take are guns. are they willing to live with that.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!
Bloomberg, Soros and Steyer bought the last Virginia election. Virginia’s 2nd Amendment supporters and their out of state friends must buy it back. We worked together to produce a miracle. Thank you, thank you.
Life time member of the NRA , but very disappointed with them throughout our battle here in Virginia . Get involved before the laws are passed
Vote the communists out as soon as possible
