Even the Dems realize guns are needed. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's assault weapons ban was rejected on Monday. The State Sentate punted the vote to 2021.
Instead of passing the bill, a Senate committee voted to let the state crime commission look into the issue.
The bill is one of eight that Northam has in his gun control package. These have resulted in huge protests in the state.
More on the story per Daily Caller:
“This is a victory for honest, hard-working Virginians who shared their support for the Second Amendment in rallies on the capitol, in one-on-one meetings with their lawmakers, in letters-to-the-editor, and in phone calls, emails,and texts to their state senators,” NRA spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen said in a statement. “We thank the senators on the judiciary committee for listening to their constituents and delivering a bi-partisan defeat of an egregious gun ban that would have criminalized law-abiding gun owners.”
Northam has been largely successful in passing the rest of his gun control package, however, which includes red flag laws, universal background checks, permission for localities to enact more strict gun laws, and limiting gun purchases to one per month.
On January 20, 22,000 gun rights advocates protested the gun control package at the state capital. Many of the protesters were open-carrying.
