Gun Rationing, Other Controls Ready for Passage by VA Democrats
Democrats in Virginia’s House are full steam ahead with gun controls that include a rationing measure and a law that limits decisions parents can make when it comes to firearms in the home.
The gun rationing bill is HB 812, which prohibits law-abiding citizens from buying more than one handgun a month.
HB 1803 puts parents in a precarious position by making them criminally liable if their 15-17-year-old son or daughter accesses the gun they use for home defense. HB 1803 is moving through legislative channels with HB 72, the latter of which actually drops the age to 14 years, meaning a Class 6 felony is “the penalty for recklessly leaving a loaded, unsecured firearm in such a manner as to endanger the life or limb of any person under the age of 14.”
