Posted on 01/16/2014 7:56:38 AM PST by rktman
Just days after Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) was sworn into office, Virginia Democratic lawmakers announced their plans to push more gun control in 2014.
The Associated Press reports the proposals include the expanded background checks which McAuliffe supported during his gubernatorial campaign.

Surprise, surprise, surprise! Not.
Virginia is not for lovers... IT IS FOR IDIOTS!
Now we know where he got much of his $$$ backing.
Still boggles my mind that such an abject sleaze as McAuliffe got elected. I remember almost laughing when I first heard he was running, thinking now way on earth he could win.
Just more proof to me that America has really sunk to once-unimaginable depths of degeneracy.
I’m still bummed out by this election. I still wonder if Ken would have won if he’d brought Sarah and Ted in instead of Ron Paul.
Yes, by over 2/3 margin if I'm not mistaken (67-33). So if any gun control bill is proposed by the governor gets used for anything more than toilet paper on day one, the Republicans will have a LOT of explaining to do.
he can try. the republicans in the house would have to cave. good luck with that.
For liberals, oppression is the answer to any question.
Is he proposing restrictions that are greater than those already imposed by the current legislation?
Isn't that what we all thought about Obama.
I suppose they’ll “redouble” their efforts to make things really really really really illegal now.
Yes it is... almost 2-1 GOP majority... and most of these are conservatives too. This is nothing more than political grandstanding by the dems. New gun control laws aren't going to happen.
Exactly. This is precisely why I'm not sweating McAuliffe. He can posit all he wants, but he's going to be little more than a paperweight.
I am probably one of the last people on the planet who understood your screen name without prompting!
The U.S. House of Representatives is “firmly in Republican hands”.
How’s that working out?
very and if we win 1 of the 2 special elections, we take over the State Senate. Currently 20/20. One of the elections is already going to recount, only 10 votes separated the two and of course the DEM is winning as of right now.
Get your butts out for VCDL lobby day on Monday.
My daughter lives in VA and seemed to display a cetain antipthy towards Cuccinelli. I think she eventually voted for him, or the 3rd party candidate (same as voting for McCauliffe.)
For some reason, women in VA did not like Cuccinelli. I’m guessing that it was a combination of the McCuliffe hate campaign ads and the fact that Cuccinelli does not smile a lot. I think that lo-info women find a broad, easy smile on a candidate very appealing, and they are more willing to trust a candidate with a big, sappy grin.
Final count will be declared after they find a box of 120 uncounted Dem votes. sarc/off
Zathras on B5 was the keeper of the Great Machine and had a servants heart.
He also had lots of brothers.
Just like me.
Many women wanted the right to a dead baby, however and whenever they want it... Cuccinelli isn't down with that idea.
Zathras gone! Zathras warned Zathras, but Zathras never listened to Zathras. Zathras was quiet one in family.
Yes, the Dem is currently head by 9 votes, which actually surprised me. I really expected him to win it handily. He is extremely popular in the House District seat he currently holds (only token opposition). I had no real issues with him in the House, but I do not want to see him in the Senate.
That wasn’t my daughter. She is pro-life. But Cuccinelli did not appeal to her, or her friends. I really couldn’t get a good answer.
But McAwful has already signed two “executive orders” so he is sharpening his pen as we speak a la Obozo...
And the AG who stole the close one is another Holder who will let him “rule” unopposed.
Hold fast, HofDs
But is Zathras stuck? Or unstuck?
Actually... It was Sinclair that got stuck.
“Zathras warned, but no one listen to Zathras, no.”
VA people deserve all they will receive.
Yes, their mothers liked GA Jimmy’s disappearing grin after 1976. But oddly Carter lost VA both times.
“Isn’t that what we all thought about Obama. “
No. I knew Obama was going to win the day the name Jeremiah Wright was mentioned and the media did nothing to follow up on it.
Was also pretty obvious when the media selected John McCain to be the GOP nominee.
