    Virginia HB961 | 2020 | Regular Session

    Any person who legally owns an assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator on July 1, 2020, may retain possession until January 1, 2021. During that time, such person shall (i) render the assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator inoperable; (ii) remove the assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator from the Commonwealth; (iii) transfer the assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator to a person outside the Commonwealth who is not prohibited from possessing it; or (iv) surrender the assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator.

    This got introduced and approved today by Virginia house committee. Hopefully the courts will demolish this quickly.

    And so do they have any idea just how many of these so called prohibited items are in Virgina? Oh thats right since there is no registration of these items they have no idea. Lots of luck trying to enforce this as 96% of the state is a 2nd amendment sanctuary.

    Ok what is a "assault firearm" what is a "large-capacity magazine" and what is a "trigger activator" these seem to be very vague terms that could mean anything at any time.

    So for the trigger activators, do you have to cut off your index finger and burn your MAGA hats?

    Didn't they recently pass some red flag laws, as well as the "you're not allowed to criticize law makers on social media" law?

    The proposed legislation defines an assault as semi-automatic, center fire pistol, shotgun or rifle with one of a variety traits such as threaded barrel, mag well in front of the trigger, suppressor with a catch all statement of “or like” which will make everything is an assault weapon.

    BTW, the sanctuary movement will not protect citizens from the state police who will enforce these laws to the letter of the law and prosecutors will be looking to get maximum sentences to make examples out of anyone who defies these new laws.

    The irony is that the poor, minorities will be the ones getting locked up on the strength of these laws as they are the ones who statistically get stopped by the police more often. Put simply, the radical liberals are working hard to pass racist laws. You really can’t make this stuff up.

    100%. We’ll have to see if the VIRGINIA Senate stops the madness. I still can’t believe that VB voted for sanctuary and NORFOLK won’t even have a vote on the subject. Time to move to Currituck.

    Most of these people just ended their political career. I can see people who have never voted before turning up at the polls next election cycle to get these tyrannical douche bags out of office.

    That
    One can only hope at this point it gets voted down. The D's only hold a 3 vote majority in the senate. Hopefully a couple of them cross over when it comes time for the vote. Currituck is not out of the possibilities my wife hates it here more than me.

    Obvious that others (e.g. soros), who also have no idea what they’re talking about, tell him what rights need to be taken away from Americans so they can control us.
    He in turn, with his own prejudices, just throws money at it to try to get it done. Just like he did when he bought the house, senate, and governor in Virginia. Just like he's trying to buy the presidency.

    Frankly, I'm suprised how simple-minded and foolish he is for having +60 billion dollars.

    Yes to this. I bought a house in Carova Beach a few years ago. As soon as the daughter heads off to college and literally pulls out of the drive way, the VA house goes on the market.
