    Governor Northam wants to force you to register every gun you own, while he builds a MASSIVE database of Virginia gun owners!
    .
    This would allow your firearms to be seized via ex-parte hearings that you wouldn't even be allowed to attend. Help us fight back, sign this petition now: https://tinyurl.com/y34vr24z

    Folks, you're not required to donate in order to sign. The moment you pressed submit, we got your petition! If you'd like to donate, in order to help us fund the operation we're running in Richmond, we'd appreciate the help but it's NOT required to sign! Unfortunately fighting for gun rights isn't free and the Left is LOADED with Bloomberg and Soros money.

    VA Governor Ralph Northam has called for a special session of the General Assembly

    Governor Ralph Northam has called for a special session of the General Assembly to specifically address gun control regulations following the mass shooting in a Virginia Beach city government building in May.
    .
    That session is set to begin on Tuesday, and Northam has released details on his legislative agenda for it.
    .
    According to a release, this special session is intended to address gun violence in the Commonwealth.
    .
    "We continue to lose too many lives to senseless and preventable acts of gun violence, but we have the power to make meaningful change," said Northam. "Now is the time to act. Virginians deserve votes and laws, not thoughts and prayers. I urge the members of the General Assembly to engage in a thorough, meaningful discussion about these proposed bills and to allow every member to cast their votes on the floor."
    .
    One bill would require background checks on all firearms sales and transactions, mandating that any person selling, renting, trading or transferring a firearm must first get the results of a background check before the transaction can be completed.
    .
    Another would ban "dangerous weapons" such as assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, bump stocks and silencers/suppressors.
    .
    Northam also wants to reinstate a law that allows only one handgun to be purchased within a 30-day period by a given person.
    .
    He also wants a law requiring lost and stolen firearms to be reported to law enforcement within 24 hours of the weapon's disappearance.
    .
    Another bill would create an Extreme Risk Protective Order, which would allow law enforcement and courts to temporarily separate a person from their firearms if the person exhibits dangerous behavior that presents an immediate threat to themselves or to others.
    .
    Still another bill would prohibit people who are subject to final protective orders from possessing firearms, expanding on a current law that prohibits people subject to final protective orders of family abuse from possessing firearms.
    .
    Northam has also proposed legislation to enhance the punishment for allowing access to loaded, unsecured firearms by a child. The bill would raise it from a class 3 misdemeanor to a class 6 felony and raises the age of the child from 14 to 18.
    .
    The final bill in Northam's agenda enables localities to enact any firearms ordinances that are stricter than state law, including regulating firearms in municipal buildings, libraries and at permitted events.
    .
    This last bill has been an issue of contention in the Charlottesville area following the events of the Unite the Right rally in August 2017.
    .
    Since the shooting in Virginia Beach, Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran and Secretary of Health and Human Resources Daniel Carey have been holding roundtable discussion across Virginia to talk with community leaders and the people about gun violence.
    .
    The release describes gun violence as a public safety and public health crisis in Virginia.
    .
    In 2017, more than 1,000 lives were lost to gun violence in the Commonwealth, and the number increased in 2018.
    .
    The special session will take place July 9.

    As of today, this special session was postponed with the help of the Republican controlled state senate.

    GOP-led Virginia Legislature abruptly adjourns gun session
    .
    Less than two hours after beginning a special session called in response to a mass shooting, Virginia lawmakers abruptly adjourned Tuesday and postponed any movement on gun laws until after the November election.
    .
    Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam summoned the Republican-led Legislature to the Capitol to address gun violence in the wake of the May 31 attack that killed a dozen people in Virginia Beach. He put forward a package of eight gun-control measures and called for “votes and laws, not thoughts and prayers” in reaction to the massacre.
    .
    But not a single vote was cast on the legislation. Republican leaders said the session was premature and politically motivated. They assigned the state’s bipartisan crime commission to study the Virginia Beach shooting and the governor’s proposed legislation.
    .
    In reply, angry Democrats said Republicans were beholden to the gun lobby and afraid of passing commonsense laws they know will save lives.

    .
    It was a familiar outcome in a stalled debate that plays out yearly in Virginia on an issue that has divided the nation for more than two decades.
    .
    Richard Keene, a 51-year-old gun owner from Chesterfield, said the session turned out to be “a lot of hype for nothing.”
    .
    “I’m a little disappointed in everyone, actually,” he said. “I don’t feel like the common, normal person, the normal American, is represented anymore. It’s frustrating.”
    .
    Outside the Capitol, Northam led a group of gun-control supporters chanting “Enough is enough!” It has become a refrain against gun violence at rallies nationwide after repeated mass shootings.
    .
    Jim Snyder, a 69-year-old gun owner from northern Virginia, said the Virginia Beach shooting had not moved the needle on gun issues for him one bit.
    .
    “A lot of people say, ‘Well, we’ve got to find common ground,’ which means, ‘We’ve got to find gun control that you’ll accept,’” said Snyder, who is vice president of the gun-rights group Virginia Citizens Defense League. But he said he was speaking only for himself.

    .
    Northam is a typical anti-gun Democrat and most of his recommendations are way too liberal and most people here in VA don’t want them to be implemented.
