Well, this is annoying: https://www.nraila.org/articles/201...e-july-9th-for-special-session-on-gun-control I voted for Corey Stewart, and I have no idea why those in the primaries nominated Ed G. But now we're forced to sow the fruits of that election with Ralph "Shoe-polish/KKK-man" Northam at the helm. Let me be clear. My heart goes out to everyone who lost their lives at the Municipal Centre in Virginia Beach. That's my home town. I know the people who drove the victims to the hospital (my friend is one of the EMTs for that part of Virginia Beach). But Ralph Northam is pushing something that none of the Virginia Beach'ers want. It's a pretty conservative city by virtue of the military. I used to be a Lyft driver there, and about every third passenger I had was for the Naval or Army bases nearby. Super republican. We don't want this crap. I digress, enough personal commentary on my part. I do not believe that this will be fruitful. The House of Delegates and Senate both have a Republican majority (narrow, at 51 in the HoD, and 21 in the Senate, plus not all of the democrats want to commit suicide by voting for unpopular bans, I'm sure) but I have still written to my delegates and senators. I encourage all of the virginians on here to do the same. To summarize what Northam is proposing (The left's common language in parentheses) : Criminalization of the private transfer of firearms ("Universal Background Checks") Bans on semi-auto, military-style firearms ("Assault Weapons Ban") Ban on suppressors and bump stocks ("Ban Silencers and Bump Stocks") Firearms rationing ("One gun a month/One handgun a month") Provisions to confiscate firearms from law-abiding individuals without due-process ("Extreme Protective Order") Mandatory firearm storage requirements ("Child access prevention") Allowing localities to patchwork gun laws, weakening Virginia's firearm preemption laws. ("Empowering localities to regulate guns") Mandatory lost/stolen firearm reporting If any of the provisions here, besides firearms rationing, got passed, I plan to pack up and move within the next year or two. I luckily don't own any housing in VA and I don't have a long lease, so I can get out. Others aren't so lucky. I cannot emphasize this enough - bug the absolute crap out of your delegates/senators about this.
