Skip to comments.Sweeping VA gun ban, likely confiscation without grandfather clause, proposed by state legislature
Posted on 11/27/2019 11:12:58 AM PST by Roman_War_Criminal
Virginia lawmakers are now considering a state law banning the ownership of certain semi-automatic guns deemed assault firearms and limiting the magazine capacity of other firearms in the state and there are no clauses that would allow existing owners to continue possessing them.
Virginia state Sen. Richard Saslaw introduced SB16, which would expand the definition of an assault firearm to cover many different semi-automatic rifles and pistols. The bill would call for the ban of such firearms, barring people from purchasing, possessing, selling or transferring those weapons.
Among the changes in firearm definitions, the bill would expand the term assault firearm to include semi-automatic centerfire rifles and pistols with a fixed magazine capacity greater than 10 rounds. The bill would also ban semi-automatic rifles and pistols with detachable magazines that also have folding and telescoping stocks, barrel shrouds, and thumbhole grips and second hand grips.
Rifles, under the new bill, would not be allowed pistol grips, bayonet mounts, grenade or flare launchers, silencers, muzzle breaks and flash suppressors.

But the street gangs will be allowed to keep theirs since the government can’t get theirs they’ll get yours.
Elections have consequences.

This needs to be taken to the Supreme Court for clarification- the current def of assault weapon means something that is capable of BOTH single fire AND Automatic
What say ye, Virginia FReepers?
Well, Virginians, you voted your way into this. And now you’ll have to fight your way out of it.
Sounds like a court challenge on 2nd Amendment grounds and would run up to Supreme Court in a post RBG era
Attention Virginia: elections have consequences. May your chains rest lightly on you.
“...and there are no clauses that would allow existing owners to continue possessing them....”
This will be a model for other states PARTICULARLY if they can do it without violence or a lot of other trouble.
And VA is going to likely be under martial law by Trump and soon and people like Saskaw will be locked up.
Yep, this will keep kick off CWII. Count NC in for support, Ill let the lads know.
Nope. Tried already by NY State and Konnecticut.
So we all turned in our firearms....
Maybe Manasses will be the start of Civil War 2, just like Sumpter was in the first.
Time to take the blood of Tyrants and hang them from the tree of Liberty.
Elections have consequences.
Yes, they do. But, the Constitution and 2nd Amendment remains.
That sums it up for me.
"No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability."
Amendment XIV Section 3
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution...
Article VI of the Constitution
Leftists don't want to get barred from office permanently.
I understand that over a dozen counties saw this coming and are declaring themselves 2A Sanctuaries
