BREAKING: Virginia Strikes Down One Of Gov. Northam’s Insane Gun Control Bills


When Virginia’s House Public Safety Committee meets on Friday morning to consider HB961, Democrats will move to modify the current language and remove a registration requirement for so-called “assault firearms,” as well as changing a ban on ammunition magazines that can hold more than ten rounds to a ban on those that can hold more than twelve, according to a draft copy of the legislation reviewed by Bearing Arms.

The changes are clearly meant to mollify some House Democrats who are concerned voting for the sweeping bill could mean the end of their political careers in the 2021, but despite removing the registration requirement for existing owners of the most commonly produced rifle in the country, the bill would still turn the vast majority of the state’s legal gun owners into felons overnight.

Northam wanted to make it a felony for gun owners to allow their minor kids access to firearms for self-defense or other lawful purposes. Or even have a loaded firearm present for defense of the home.

Democrats are continuing to work on the substitute language in the hours before the House Public Safety Committee hearing that begins at 8 a.m. Friday morning, and we may see more changes to the portions of the bill dealing with suppressors and magazines before the committee votes on the measure, which at the moment is slated to be the last bill considered in the hearing.
Remarkably, or perhaps not so much, two Democrats voted against the measure, killing it in a Senate committee.

From FoxNews:

Virginia lawmakers on Monday rejected a gun control bill proposed by Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, as the state continues to become the battleground in the nation’s gun debate.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted against Northam‘s bill that would make it a felony to “recklessly leave a loaded, unsecured firearm” in a way that endangers a minor.

“This bill will keep children safe from loaded, unsecured firearms. Like Gov. Northam’s other commonsense gun safety measures, it is something that everyone — including responsible gun owners — should support,” said Northam’s spokeswoman, Alena Yarmosky…

Getting controversial bills through House and Senate committees is generally considered easier than getting them through the entire legislative bodies.
