Bipartisan Rejection of Anti-Civil Rights Bill in Virginia


Virginia governor Ralph Northam’s push to ban the sale of assault weapons failed on Monday after some of his fellow Democrats balked at the proposal.

Senators voted to shelve the bill for the year and ask the state crime commission to study the issue, an outcome that drew cheers from a committee room packed with gun rights advocates.

Four moderate Democrats joined Republicans in Monday’s committee vote, rejecting legislation that would have prohibited the sale of certain semiautomatic firearms, including popular AR-15 style rifles, and banned the possession of magazines that hold more than 12 rounds.

    That racist Democrat governor should have resigned…for being Anti-American.

    California will be the first in the nation to enact the Virginia proposals.

    This situation came about in Virginia because of voter apathy in the last election. Remember that today.
