BREAKING: Virginia Passes 7 More Gun Control Bills


Virginia’s Democrat-controlled House of
Delegates approved more than a half-dozen gun control bills Thursday afternoon, including
a version of “red flag” legislation, “universal background checks,” and the gutting of Virginia’s
firearms preemption laws, Bearing Arms reported. Former delegate Scott Lingamfelter joins me
on today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co. to talk about the anti-gun agenda that’s being
rushed through the legislature with fierce opposition but little time for debate. The Republican says the actions of Gov. Ralph
Northam are a far cry from the man he served with in the Virginia legislature, and Lingamfelter
says Northam as “sold his soul” to anti-gun activists and far-Left politicians in an attempt
to rehabilitate his image and political career after his blackface controversy in 2019. Make sure you check out the entire interview
above, and keep reading for a look at the bills that cleared the House on Thursday afternoon. HB 1083 states that any person who “recklessly
leaves a loaded, unsecured firearm in such a manner as to endanger the life or limb of
any person under the age of 18 is guilty of a Class 6 felony.” HB 812 is handgun rationing, limiting purchases
of handguns to one-per-month. Unlike the version passed by the state senate, this bill does
not contain an exemption for those who are licensed to carry a concealed firearm in Virginia. HB 2 HB 2 requires background checks on all
sales and transfers of firearms, with only limited exceptions, while the senate version
of the background bill applies only to private sales, not transfers. HB 421 guts the state’s firearms preemption
laws and allows for localities to set their own gun control laws regarding the “possession,
carrying, storage, or transporting of firearms, ammunition, or components or combination thereof,”
meaning that Virginians could soon be forced to learn the various gun laws of dozens of
localities in order to stay in compliance. Virginia’s House of Delegates approved seven
pieces of legislation aimed at curbing gun violence, including universal background checks,
a monthly limit on handgun purchases and “a red flag” law, which would give judges and
police officers the authority to remove a weapon from an individual if they pose a threat.
