VA. Lawmakers Snub Second Amendment Defenders Just A Week After The Rally
Lawful Virginia gun owners came together at a rally earlier this month to show their support for the second amendment. There was a huge turnout as over 15k people showed up and peacefully let lawmakers know that they were not ok with Gun Control. But lawmakers didn't seem to care about the wants of the people, so they started the process of pushing through Gun Control Laws just a week later.
"A Democratic-led House committee voted Friday for several pieces of gun legislation that a Republican majority has blocked for years. Those bills include limiting handgun purchases to once a month; universal background checks on gun purchases; allowing localities to ban guns in public buildings, parks and other areas; and a red flag bill that would allow authorities to temporarily take guns away from anyone deemed to be dangerous to themselves or others.
The advancing bills do not yet include a proposed assault weapon ban, a top priority for Gov. Ralph Northam and one that's drawn fierce resistance from gun-rights advocates.
The measures will go to the full House for a vote, likely next week, before going to the Senate, which has already passed some gun-control bills of its own.
“Our action today is for the families who have lost loved ones as a result of gun violence,” House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn said.
"The House committee passed seven out of eight gun bills that Northam has said were his priority. But it did not take up an assault weapon ban, which some Democrats said they don't think can pass this year. The Senate has already killed off its version of the bill and some moderate Democratic senators said they won't support the legislation, which would outlaw the popular AR-15-style rifles."
Watch The Clip Below.
The Lawmakers have not pushed through any of the bans or confiscation laws that they were threatening this past December, but supposedly those are still in the works. Most Virginian counties have declared themselves second amendment sanctuaries and that combined with the recent rally, Gun Grabbing lawmakers should know better. So if you look at how the Dem Lawmakers are acting now, just about a week after the rally, it shows just how indifferent they are to the wants of the people. Virginian gun owners better watch out, it looks like Dems will be coming after their guns soon.
