Virginia Democratic-controlled legislature advanced the red flag bill that allows authorities to confiscate guns from people accused of being a threat to themselves and others.
The Senate Bill SB240 passed alongside three other gun control bills Senate Bill 35, Senate Bill 69, and Senate Bill 70. The bills authorize localities to impose firearm bans from public spaces during some events, imposes the limit of one handgun purchase per month, and enforce universal background checks for all firearm transfers respectively.
Another Democratic-sponsored bill bans indoor shooting ranges at offices with more than 50 employees. Yet another Democratic bill HB 162 offers immunity to gun-free zones if a person sustains firearm-related injuries in such places.
The democrats ruled out any amendments that the Republicans suggested and proceeded to approve the bills. Republican members protested the passing of the bills saying that it amounted to an assault of civil liberties. The Senate Bill SB240 will go through a vote where it is expected to pass.
The democratic legislature also killed 11 Republican bills within two hours with some bills being kicked out in less than 10 minutes.
Republican-sponsored HB 1470 and HB 1471 introduced by Christopher Head from Botetourt sought to create a process for compliance for a landowner whose property spans different localities with different gun laws.
Other bills sought to allow the carrying of firearms in places of worship. Religious leaders had made these requests in order to ensure the security of their places of worship. However, the democratic legislature ignores their requests and trashed the bills. Another Republican-sponsored bill would allow citizens to carry without a concealed gun without a permit.
The sane gun debate in Virginia ended when the democrats funded by rich anti-gun billionaires such as Michael Bloomberg took over the house after over two decades of failure.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
