Virginia – -(Ammoland.com)- A recount has now tied control of the Virginia House of Delegates BY ONE VOTE (I never want to hear any gun owner saying their vote doesn’t count).
That single vote has made Virginia Citizens Defense League’s job of both protecting and advancing gun rights in Virginia MUCH more difficult and MUCH more important.
The anti-rights crowd isn’t wasting any time. There are already bills pre-filed that will:
* ban anything that makes a semi-automatic firearm fire faster than an “unaided” shooter can fire that same firearm. Existing devices are not grandfathered. Gun Parts Ban.
* allow localities to prohibit firearms at protests and demonstrations. Subverting Preemption
* ban firearms at preschools and child daycare centers. Increased Gun Free Zones
* make it illegal for a person open carrying to consume alcohol, even a glass of wine with a meal. Gun Owner Harrasment
* ban online firearms training. Reduced Access to Gun Safety Training
Those anti rights bills bills are just the tip of the iceberg. Universal background checks, “assault weapon” bans, magazine capacity limitations, bans on carry in libraries and other local government buildings, and much more are on the way.
