Virginia’s House of Delegates approved a ban on private firearm sales, a red flag law and gun rationing among others on Thursday. This despite the massive rally on January 20th that drew tens of thousands of angry gun owners to Richmond.
From the Daily Caller:
The Virginia House of Delegates approved a series of gun control laws Thursday, just over a week after Second Amendment activists staged massive protests at the state capital of Richmond.
The legislation included universal background checks, red flag laws and a law limiting citizens of the Commonwealth to one firearm purchase a month, according to ABC News. Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has made gun control a top priority since Democrats took control of the state legislature last November.
And then he went on Twitter to claim those racist gun control bills will save lives.
The Virginia House of Delegates just passed 7 of our commonsense gun safety bills, including universal background checks and a ‘red flag’ law.
Make no mistake—these measures will save lives.

It should surprise no one that a guy who appeared in a racist yearbook photo while in college would want to impose gun control upon the little people. After all, gun control disproportionately impacts law-abiding minorities and women, not criminals.
