Virginia: Correcting Record on Gun Ban Bill from 2020

Why Second Amendment Sanctuaries Are Important In Virginia & the U.S., Allexxandar-iStock-884220580

U.S.A. -(  Members and other Second Amendment supporters, you may have seen that other Virginia gun rights groups recently mentioned last year’s legislation and Governor Northam’s gun ban bill, HB961, making at least one incorrect claim. We feel that it is critical to address this.

House Bill 961, Governor Northam’s gun ban, was carried over by Senate Judiciary to the 2021 session. However, because no legislative action was taken on the bill at any other point in 2020, the legislation died on December 4, 2020. Thanks to your efforts, HB961 is dead, and cannot be brought back before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

However, Governor Northam has said that taking away guns remains a priority. New gun ban legislation can be filed at any time. NRA remains vigilant in monitoring incoming legislation in Richmond and is ready to fight for law-abiding citizens against these infringements.

Gee, I don’t know, maybe of the NRA had gotten involved, say, LAST YEAR & helped out those of us/groups that were actually fighting against this there wouldn’t be such hysteria now.

NRA…nra…nra. Seems like there was an organization called the NRA that was pretty good about 2A issues when I was a kid but they have been gone for a long time. Heard they became some kind of support group or money pool for some guy named wayne something or other. Too bad really.


You must be talking about prior to 1968 then.


I wised up and dropped my NRA membership in 1986. They had already stabbed me in the back, multiple times, before then, but that one finally woke me up. That year I went to GOA instead.
So it must’ve been WELL before then… 🙂
