DEMOCRATS APPROVE RED-FLAG LAW IN VIRGINIA A DAY AFTER PRO-GUN PROTESTS

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.
