    "Thousands of NRA supporters turned out at Virginia's capitol building on Monday in a show of opposition that pushed Democrats in the state legislature to moderate or abandon some of their strictest gun-control proposals.
    ...
    The presence of gun-rights supporters at the state Senate judiciary committee hearing appeared to have an impact, as Democrats formally withdrew S.B. 16—a hotly-contested bill that would have effectively confiscated AR-15s and similar firearms—and moderated several other proposals. "


    NRA Supporters Flood Virginia Capitol, Push Dems to Change Gun-Control Bills

    Sorry leftists. Another failed gun grab attempt. Are you getting it yet?

    The idiots didn't learn from the successful states wording of laws.
    SB 16 Assault firearms and certain firearm magazines; prohibiting sale, transport, etc., penalties.
    Prohibiting sale, transport, etc., of assault firearms

    The wording of Assault ANYTHING would have been thrown out in the first court appearance. Assault Firearms has no meaning. It's already been ruled that it's too general of a definition and can be used to ban other guns like even the 22LR and the Mini-14 or any other semi auto hunting or sporting rifle. When you read what is in California's law and 7 other states that has been contested in the courts and found to be legal, they use the term "AR-15/AK-47 and their various clones: instead of Assault Rifle. It has to be specific. I wonder if the NRA didn't help write the thing know it wouldn't hold up only for the PR so they could get back to the public's attention.

    Only because it was poorly written. I still wonder if the NRA didn't have a hand in writing it. By getting it written so poorly, it makes the NRA look like a savior. Had it been written properly (doing the same thing) it would have been perfectly legal and sustained the court system. As it's written, it won't make it past the first court of appeals.

    Quite the opposite
    The far left sub human tyrannical nazi filth won today


    Several thousand gun owners turned out at the temporary General Assembly Building on Monday, January 13! The hearing room was divided into two areas - the larger area for gun-rights supporters and the other was a smaller area for gun-control supporters.

    Gun owners filled up their side of the room quickly, while the gun controllers side was still pretty empty. To make it looked like they had more people and not look so pitiful, a search for gun-controllers in the waiting line outside the meeting room doors was conducted. Countless gun owners in the line were skipped over in the search for more gun-controllers. Whenever a gun controller was found, they were allowed to go into the meeting room, but no more gun owners were allowed in.

    Sheriff Scott Jenkins of Culpeper County and Sheriff Richard Vaughn of Grayson County were in the room in support of gun owners. Sheriff Jenkins spoke twice during the hearings.

    The meeting was chaired by Democrat Senator John Edwards. The Republicans on the committee pointed out multiple mistakes and even rules that were broken in the running of the committee, but the Democrat-controlled committee ignored the complaints and lurched forward anyhow, rules be damned.

    You don't know what you are talking about.....the AR-15 by name, is protected by the 2nd Amendment as are all other rifles like it.......the lower courts have ignored the law....they are in violation of the Constitution. You make up stuff and think you are clever....you aren't.

    Another rightwing lie.

    There is no provision in the proposed measure that would have authorized the ‘confiscation’ of any firearm.

    Most conservatives are as dishonest as they are reprehensible.
