House Democrats used their majority Friday to advance the most controversial gun control bill this General Assembly session, a ban on the sale of assault weapons and the possession of "high capacity" magazines of 12 or more rounds.
The House Public Safety Committee backed House Bill 961 on a 12-9 party-line vote, sending it to the floor of the House of Delegates. The bill would, among other things, require Virginians to turn over or destroy ammunition magazines considered to be high capacity and allow the possession of centerfire assault rifles but prohibit the transfer of sale of them in most situations.

Communists doing what communists do.
Why would anyone live in Virginia?
The Democrats no longer care about freedom, liberty or democracy
They are a totalitarian party set upon enslaving you and your families until you are under their thumb.
This fall - kick them all out.
There you have it.
Y'all need to turn your Legislature back over to the sane lawmakers again come November.
Because it was for sure a nice place to Live and raise Families,stuff happens and you Pray everyday it changes so you will not have to move or take action.
The only good democrat politician is a ... You get the idea.
Its amazing red Virginia lasted as long as it did with that huge sociopath magnet next to it drawing sociopaths from all over the US to settle and vote in NVA. With the growth of the fed state in the last 40 years or so its a wonder this didnt happen long before. Folks should consider how their own state would do treading water with that ever-growing boat anchor attached to their state for decade upon decade.
The capital should be rotated so every region and state gets to experience the benefits and drawbacks of the fed monster and the massive private support structure that services it.
Turn them in empty...
Learn the hard lesson, Virginians, and never, EVER vote for a dimocrat again!
Once 18 in 1984, ran from the place. Cops were power hungry , gone to their heads, straight up gestapo back then and steady getting worse. Hated it ! Were it not for family would never go back
Its pathetic that these clueless assholes and their supporters have no idea how a semiautomatic firearm operates.
Democrats serve their benefactors in foreign communist governments and the drug cartels. Saw an article within the past few days from the Chinese government showing its desire for Americans to be disarmed. And our big free traitors want to please their benefactors in China.
So campaign and contribute to Republicans, or your Second Amendment rights will certainly be violated in the near future.
Now why would the chinese government want our population disarmed......maybe they realize that 100 million Americans with 3-6 guns each would make the largest army in the world.....
I can only believe that these fools ate trying to instigate a violent reaction thinking that they can then use the letter of the law to castigate the perpetrators as villains.
“Why would anyone live in Virginia?”
Swamp denizens don’t want to live in DC.
Unfortunately not possible. The next Virginia general election is in November of 2021.
Don’t kid yourself. They know. And they are not against the ownership of guns. They just want the State to be the only one to be able to own guns. And the Agents of the State to be the only ones to possess guns.
