A bill backed by Gov. Ralph Northam that would ban the sale of assault-style weapons in Virginia failed on a committee vote Monday morning, setting back one of the biggest priorities for the newly minted Democrat-controlled government in the state.

A crowd of gun-rights activists packed into the committee room cheered as the vote came in, with four moderate Democrats joining Republicans to shelve the bill until next year. Heated exchanges over guns have dominated this year's legislative session. They were also a key topic of last year's legislative elections – particularly after a mass shooting in Virginia Beach claimed a dozen lives – and gun control groups heavily funded Democratic candidates.


Thank God a few democrats remembered their oath to defend and support the Constitution. This is a giant win for our nation.
I hope some time is spent trying to find out why someone would want to kill others en mass, the means don't seem to matter.

Unless this clown and others like him are voted out, this will continue while everyone sleeps. They will attempt to attach it as a rider to a bill everyone wants passed and sneak it through.

totally agreed. But this could have passed and had to be dealt with in court, which could take years. meanwhile, honest folk would be felons. This was a win!

I agree it is a win. But, it is merely one battle in a long and drawn out war. That's the trap. Give the dissenters the feeling of victory, while scheming how they can slide it past them while they revel in this "victory".

In November 2021, that can all be rectified. I hope they do non stop adds about all the things he tried to do. That alone should sink him.

All weapons are assault weapons. That's why they're called "weapons".

That's why they want to wait until after the presidential election to see where things go, and if they happen to win the white house then it will pass......then what ?

True, and Virginia has the perfect reminder of that right on their flag.
Governor blackface should be voted out ,because they changed the recall rules to favor him.
That is the kid who changes the rules when he sees that he is loosing the game...bunch of BS

assault guillotine, obviously.
when it takes a whole town to get involved in executing the traitors, you can't call it a line gunman. or a line brickswinger. line terrorist. etc etc etc...

the will of the people can only be enforced by the people.
That's why the French up and execute everyone in charge now and then- the people run things, not the government.

Where are they at with leaving and joining WV? May be it was a financial decision rather than them upholding the 2nd. How much tax revenew would they loose from those counties moving west?

Sad news. They should ban them. I hope they all get shot for allowing such weapons and all people who want those guns to get shot too.

you sound unhinged and really violent. I think you should be held in a mental facility for a few years to verify if you are suicidal.

I think you need to get a mental health checkup, and soon. Wishing people get shot?? Really?? With people like you on their side, it's no wonder they want to ban weapons. They don't trust their own supporters I guess.

If you feel so strongly about that, why not go about it in the legal manner? You know, as the founders set forth in the Constitution. It is amendable, so make that happen legally. That way, nobody needs to wish others get shot for defending their rights under the Constitution.

And I still think you need professional help for that anger management and fantasies of killing. That is simply not healthy at all.

If I knew you in person I would use the red flag law that you probably support against you to make sure you couldn't be a real threat to anyone.
