Virginia: Gun Ban Bill Defeated!
NRA ^ | Feb 17, 2020 | Staff

Posted on 02/17/2020 6:20:40 AM PST by 11th_VA

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.

Numerous other anti-gun bills are still in play this session. Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on these bills and other issues threatening our Second Amendment rights in Virginia.

New York Times:

Four moderate Democrats joined Republicans in Monday's committee vote, rejecting legislation that would have prohibited the sale of certain semiautomatic firearms, including popular AR-15 style rifles, and banned the possession of magazines that hold more than 12 rounds.

The bill was a top priority for Northam, a Democrat who has campaigned heavily for a broad package of gun-control measures.

I would caution against getting too excited. These Commies are not of the mind to take defeat, easily or laying down. They will not give up in their efforts to replace Freedom with Tyranny. This is just a minor set-back.

They only tabled the bill for the year. It is important to never give up the fight.

Yes, Virginia. Citizens’ action does sometimes work.

Enough time to ensure these MoFos don't get re-elected in 2021

We know that.

We are in this for the long haul and I don’t think any of us are unaware of that.

Don’t get too excited, they’ll just massage it a little and keep bringing it back until the senate is worn down.

None of the VA Senate is up in 2021, only the VA House of Delegates.

They better learn to take defeat regularly. Those who have Chinese influence money better learn to tread softly. We see and we know!!
