Virginia Senate Passes Gun Control Bills

Virginia Senate Passes Gun Control Bills

( – In defiance of the thousands of protestors who flocked to the state last month, the Virginia General Assembly passed multiple anti-gun bills.

Second Amendment Under Attack

The Democrat-led assault includes legislation for criminal background checks, one handgun per month purchases, and fines for not reporting lost or stolen firearms. In total, nine gun control bills have passed through the House and Senate in Virginia.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has already raised concerns and criticism of the new bills, calling some “unenforceable” and stating others “victimize gun owners.”

Raise the Red Flag

Of all the bills passed, Senate Bill 240 and House Bill 674 are arguably the most controversial. They allow for the search and seizure of a person’s firearms if they’re suspected of being a danger to themselves or others. These bills also prevent such persons from purchasing or transporting a gun. At first glance, this seems like a logical decision to protect the public — but what’s to prevent this new process from being abused? Absolutely nothing, and that’s where the conundrum lies.

The Dems’ push to undermine the Second Amendment doesn’t end here, either. House Bill 961, which bans the sale of “assault firearms,” silencers, specific magazines, and trigger activators, was deferred until 2021.

Hopefully, Virginians see these new bills as the wake-up call they are and vote out the Democrats who passed them.
