2nd amendment resolutions helped shelve AW ban

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — While they may have lacked legal muscle, a political scientist says the political muscle of the “2nd Amendment Sanctuary” movement in Virginia was seen as lawmakers shelved an assault weapons ban pushed by the governor.

Virginia’s Senate Judiciary Committee voted Monday to send HB961 to the crime commission for a study until the 2021 legislative session. The 10-5 vote to continue to the bill drew applause from gun rights supporters in attendance and a “bunch a wimps” remark from Sen. Louise Lucas, (D-Portsmouth).

"Northam pushed the legislation, saying it would help prevent mass shootings like the one that occurred in Virginia Beach on May 31st, and has campaigned heavily for a broad package of gun control measures."

“Northam conceded that his proposals wouldn’t have necessarily prevented the Virginia Beach shooting” The Roanoke Times reports."
from: https://newvirginiapress.com/gov-northa ... -shooting/

Which is it you lying sack of refuse?

I've got a measure that would have made a difference at that shooting...allowing those that want to defend themselves to do so. At least one would have.

That's right. Eliminating gun-free zones in all but sterile locales would discourage such events and would cut short those that do occur...
The only reason for those zones is to disarm potential victims so that more gun-control laws that wouldn't make a difference can be enacted. That is the progress of the progressives.

^^^^^^

...but I digress. Second Amendment Sanctuary and public demonstration sent a clear message to those willing to listen to be reasonable. Kudos and props to the movement.

The biggest question is what happened to the laws that let each city/or county adopt their own laws? Did that get shelved??
