Virginia house passes ban on AR-15 style rifles

The Virginia House of Delegates passed a bill to ban ’assault weapons’ such as the AR-15 and AK-47. The bill would also ban magazines which hold more than 12 rounds and silencers. The bill now moves to the Virginia Senate where it will have difficulty passing as the Democrats have a very narrow majority and Republicans vehemently oppose the bill.

They ain't get those guns the government has no right to pass any gun legislation. The rights of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. You want my guns your going to have to take it from my cold dead hands but if you try and take me down I will take you with me.

There’s no excuse not to get out and vote. Virginia got lazy and let the democrats get control and look what they do. Pro-2nd amendment Americans, remember this when it comes time to head to the polls.

The good news is that many police and sheriff departments said they will not enforce this law.

These morons in Virginia just don't understand the law it seems. This will not end well if the Constitution is not upheld. These laws need to be struck down with expediency before some stupid ass with a badge tries to enforce this tyranny on a citizen.

Unmodified AR-15s are less deadly than some pistols and are much harder to conceal.

All firearms are assault weapons. It is kind of the point, so come and take it!! The leftist want a boogaloo we will stand and deliver.

Truth be told assault weapons ban legislation never really works. It usually grandfathers in all of the existing assault weapons that they want to ban including already manufactured guns that have not been sold yet. The gun manufacturers modify their designs to get around what is described as an assault weapon in the legislation, and ramp up production ahead of the implementation date. This is what happened with the last federally-mandated assault weapons ban. It's just feel good legislation for the politicians to say they're doing something about gun violence while actually really not doing anything about it.
