Virginia: Gun Ban Rammed Through Committee

Recommended Posts

In a deliberate insult to the hundreds of Second Amendment supporters who took time out of their busy schedules to get to Richmond before 8AM today, Bloomberg’s bought and paid for House Public Safety Committee granted them a total of just five minutes to speak out against House Bill 961, the crown jewel of the Northam-Bloomberg gun ban agenda. They quickly rubber stamped this comprehensive gun ban with a vote of 12-9 after limited committee debate, before clearing the public out of the room so they can continue rubber stamping other gun control bills. Clearly, they don’t want to face the citizens whose rights they are taking.

Please contact your Delegate to express your opposition to HB 961 and your disappointment in the committee’s underhanded tactics.

The Committee Substitute for House Bill 961 is a comprehensive ban on many commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, suppressors, and standard capacity magazines. The ban also extends to any part that could be used to change a firearm into a banned configuration. Though the committee amended the bill to allow citizens to keep affected firearms and suppressors they lawfully owned prior to the ban, confiscation is undoubtedly still the end goal of Michael Bloomberg and he will continue to work toward this end. There is no option for citizens to keep their lawfully acquired magazines with capacities greater than twelve rounds, forcing millions of Virginians to dispose of their property, become a felon, or surrender it to the government.

Again, please contact your Delegate to express your opposition to HB 961 and your disappointment in the committee’s underhanded tactics.

If the gun owners remember to VOTE, it won't take much to change the legislature and remove the onerous laws. The margin was very small.

And that's the RUB - If the gun owners get off their collective duffs and If the gun owners remember to VOTE.  To many think that changes will happen through social media, but they need to actually physically get involved by going to the polls.  The it won't happen here attitude has already been proved wrong.

Here in CA, 59% of the 2016 Trump supporters could not be bothered to get off their dead asses and vote in the 2018 CA primary.

As a result, we got Newsom, Pelosi, Waters, Harris and Feinstein.
