Virginia governor proposes radical gun control measure that could end up with confiscation

Make no mistake about this gun grab: This demoRAT governor is leading the fight to take away your guns in Virginia.

From Fox News: The plan to ban the sale and possession of certain kinds of firearms proposed by Virginia governor Ralph Northam (D.) could affect millions of gun owners, an industry group said on Friday.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), which represents gun manufacturers and dealers, said the vague description of the legislation released by Northam on Jan. 4 would apply to most firearms currently on sale in the commonwealth.

The legislative proposals being discussed would put most firearms beyond the reach of law-abiding Virginians who choose the firearms of their choice to protect themselves, hunt, and practice recreational target shooting,” said Lawrence G. Keane, the group’s general counsel. “That could potentially impact the availability of tens of millions of firearms.”

While short on details, Northam’s announcement said part of the proposed gun-control package would ban the “sale, purchase, possession, and transport” of undefined “assault firearms” including “any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.” Since the vast majority of semiautomatic handguns and rifles in the state are sold standard with magazines capable of holding 10 or more rounds, it appears the proposed ban would affect most firearms on sale in Virginia.

Additionally, the announcement of the ban did not include mention of any grandfathering to allow what NSSF estimated would be millions of Virginians who already own such firearms to legally keep them.

This is a straight-up gun confiscation proposal. Stephen Gutowski from Free Beacon details more about this proposal on Twitter (from Twitchy):

“Virginia Democrats don’t just want to ban future sales of “assault firearms” as a few states have done, they want to outright ban possession which means confiscation. And their vauge definition of “assault firearms” applies to most currently sold in VA.”

“The only defining characteristic they’ve released thus far is any firearm “equipped” with a magazine that holds 10 or more rounds. That’s nearly every semi-automatic handgun and rifle sold in the state. The vast majority come standard with magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.”

The governor’s office refused to return my calls or answer my questions on the proposed ban so there’s no more details on what the actual legislation will look like or how Democrats would enforce such a law.”

“If the legislation matches the governor’s announcement, which isn’t a guarantee given how vauge and poorly written the announcement is, the proposal would be by far the most radical gun ban in the country. No other state has attempted this kind of confiscation on this scale.”

Remember this when demoRATs claim they aren’t coming for your guns…

The gun-control mania is intensifying across the U.S.

Gov. Northam, Rep. Pelossi and the rest of the elected gun-grabbing hoard know perfectly well that their gun ban proposals have no chance of becoming law. They don’t care. What they actually are up to is forcing pro 2nd Amendment organizations to deplete their resources by having them filing constant lawsuits against the proposed bans. The NRA, the NSSF, and other activists cannot out spend haters of democracy such as George Soros, the Brady bunch, and their allies who would turn the USA into a socialist/communist wasteland of repressed, disenfranchised slaves. History proves this. There has never been a country… Read more »

All the while that these fool legislators and multiple ignorant authoritarians, and arbitrators, argue and debate these absurd proposals, it is incumbent on some one, one of common sense, real under standing, and authority, to inform these half-wits that gun control has no standing.

If the true U.S. citizens have to do it on their own, the vultures will be swarming.

As a Navy Veteran and retired Los Angeles policeman I swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. As a cop I was to keep the peace and serve the citizens, not oppress them. I swore to defend our God given rights as protected by the Bill of Rights. From both domestic and foreign enemies. Those elected and non-elected people who want to disarm us are domestic enemies. Cops need to boldly announce they will not enforce these unconstitutional laws. All of us have the right and may I say responsibility t water the tree of liberty with the… Read more »

I believe we have reached a point in this country where any hope of settling our differences with the Left outside of bloodshed. We have a right to defend our lives. That Right is given to us from God.

It’s been a long time since a Conservative and a Liberal could talk Politics and actually reach a LOGICAL conclusion. With this last imposter/president,it became 100 times worse. The Democrats/Liberals/Leftists/Socialists/Communists (They’re ALL different “Chapters” of the same “Club”.) have gone even beyond extremist-they’ve gone stark raving mad. They’ve ignored the letter of law,the Constitution and common sense to formulate a party-wide lynch-mob. I’ve NEVER seen such insanity actually sanctioned by the general population. I don’t know what can be done about ’em-there’s FAR too many to arrest,prosecute for their various crimes,incarcerate,or,in the case of some specific examples (Pelosi,Schumer,Feinstein,Mad Maxine,Hillary,Obama and… Read more »

There has never been a government that banned it’s own ARMED FORCES from “Keeping and Bearing” ARMS. Find one government in the history of humanity that felt a need to document a “RIGHT” for it’s ARMED FORCES to possess ARMS. Oppressive Governments are ALWAYS banning the People’S RIGHTS to arms. The claim that the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our ARMED FORCES a “right” to keep and carry ARMS is S-T-U-P-I-D. The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS. The only reason for… Read more »
