Prohibiting sale, transport, etc., of assault firearms, certain firearm magazines, silencers, and trigger activators; penalties. Expands the definition of "assault firearm" and prohibits any person from importing, selling, transferring, manufacturing, purchasing, or transporting an assault firearm. A violation is a Class 6 felony. The bill prohibits a dealer from selling, renting, trading, or transferring from his inventory an assault firearm to any person. The bill makes it a Class 6 felony to import, sell, transfer, manufacture, purchase, possess, or transport silencers, and trigger activators, all defined in the bill. The bill makes it a Class 6 felony to import, sell, transfer, manufacture, purchase, or transport a large-capacity firearm magazine, as defined in the bill, and a Class 1 misdemeanor to possess such large-capacity firearm magazine. Any person who legally owns a large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator on July 1, 2020, may retain possession until January 1, 2021. During that time, such person shall (i) render the large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator inoperable; (ii) remove the large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator from the Commonwealth; (iii) transfer the large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator to a person outside the Commonwealth who is not prohibited from possessing it; or (iv) surrender the large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator to a state or local law-enforcement agency.
§ 18.2-308.11. Import, sale, transfer, etc., of silencers; penalty.Notice possession is not banned, but any further acquisition is.
A. For purposes of this section, "silencer" means any device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a firearm, including any part or combination of parts designed or intended for use in assembling or fabricating such a device.
B. It is unlawful for any person to import, sell, transfer, manufacture, or purchase a silencer, provided that a person may transfer a silencer in accordance with the provisions of the National Firearms Act (26 U.S.C. § 5801 et seq.). A violation of this section is punishable as a Class 6 felony.
A test case would be interesting, not only for the legal challenges, which would be swift and certain.
I want to see just how real we really are. Will we or will we not walk the walk when were finally pushed too far?
My expectation is pockets of active resistance in every state in which this totalitarianism is tried.
Our team is the law and order brigade; *but*, we started out as rebels and cant be afraid to return to our roots, if forced.
Greater Idaho is looking better by the day.
Now Ill have the B52s stuck in my head all day.
What’s the connection with the B52s? I’m afraid to ask cause I know how it is getting things stuck in your mind.
Why Idaho? I’ve never figured out why people want to do Idaho.
And just great,
now I've got it stuck in my head too.
Commonly called an “Earworm” tune or song.
From The VCDL:
The House Public Safety committee is going to hear the following bills TOMORROW morning, Friday, February 21, at 8 am in the House Committee Room:
SB 71, Firearms, possession on school property, adds public, private or religious preschools and child daycare centers to the definition of “school properties”. If you have a daycare in your church during worship services it would prohibit all but professional security services from carrying.
SB 173, Allows the holder of a valid concealed handgun permit to possess a stun weapon on school property while in a motor vehicle in a parking lot, traffic circle, or other means of vehicular ingress or egress to the school. The bill also allows a stun weapon to be stored in a closed container in a motor vehicle while such vehicle is on school property.
SB 70, Universal Background Check Bill. Background checks must be run through FFL Dealers. Dealers are limited to a maximum charge of $15 plus the VCHECK fee. Violation constitutes a Class 1 Misdemeanor for both buyer and seller. This bill would also extend the time that the State Police have to issue the disposition from one day to three.
SB 240, Red Flag Laws (gun confiscation)
SB 479, Adds to the “Prohibited Persons” list requiring that people subject to certain protective orders surrender their firearms.
SB 14, Bans Trigger Activators
SB 436, Establishes a voluntary “Do Not Sell Firearms” list, which takes a minimum of 21 days to be removed from, even if someone else maliciously puts you on the list.
To get to this meeting room, take an immediate left after passing through the metal detectors and go past the guard desk, through the glass doors and the room will be on your right.
We’ll be handing out our orange Guns SAVE Lives stickers before the meeting.
Thanks a lot.
and it’s the song that never ends.
it just goes on and on my friends.
someone started singing it, not knowing what it was.
and they’ll just go on singing it forever just because,
it is the song that never ends.
it just goes on and on my friends.
The state has very different and separate areas. All conservative. I lived in North Idaho. Great lakes and mountains.
My latest ‘earworm’...
