Positive Pro Gun Steps This Week in Virginia Legislature – Anti's Bills Killed

Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- This week was excellent for Virginia gun owners! That Said, If We Don't Vote In Good People In September, This Could All Change Next Year.

The anti's behaved themselves. Of course it helped that a Capitol police officer was in the room the whole time to serve as a reminder to keep things civil. Chairman Farris made it clear in his initial remarks that incivility would NOT be tolerated.

Even Richmond Mayor Stoney, with interim police chief in tow, was there to push gun control.

BIG THANKS TO THE REPUBLICANS, WHO ALL VOTED CORRECTLY: Matt Fariss, Mike Webert, Nick Frietas, and Jeffrey Campbell.

NOTE: Keep Democrat John Bell in your prayers. He had to leave the subcommittee early tonight because of a tragedy within his family. No further information at this time.

  • HB 2399, Delegate Lopez, allows police to drag their heels in approving gun purchases. KILLED by a 4 to 1 vote!

I’m a gun owner.
Let’s be consistent.
Since weapons don’t kill and may actually prevent attacks, we should sell nukes to North Korea and Iran.
Then we’ll be less likely to go to war with them. We probably wouldn’t have invaded Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq if those countries had owned nukes. We’d have saved trillions and not caused dismemberment and deaths of 10,000s of Americans and 100,000s of others.

@OV, Trolling Broad has it all backwards. In war, we do not cause our own deaths and casualties (except for the rare fratricide). Funny how she could be confused about that. Nor did we invade Vietnam. There were two Vietnams, North and South. JFK, committed to help South Vietnam at the request of RSV. So she got all that wrong. As to Iraq, I was there and things went quite well, but I don’t recall seeing TB anywhere. As to Afghanistan, it was the Russians that went there uninvited, not the US. She must have done well in her Jr… Read more »

Yes, by all means, “Let’s be consistent.” We are talking about US gun laws that cover sales in the US. They have no bearing on international sales. Those are covered by end use rules. Those are enemy countries. What is it we call providing material support to the enemy? Right, TREASON. You provide them nukes, if you want, I’d rather provide ammunition, pointy end first. You must have filled out a 4473 before. Any of those nutcases able to fill one out w/o lying? That’s another issue. I’m pretty sure that murderers and baby rapers are covered by some law… Read more »
