⁉️ Bill to Ban AR-15 style rifles, Suppressors, Mandate ‘High Cap’ Magazine Destruction passes Virginia General Assembly.. will make millions felons
A state House committee on Friday advanced legislation backed by Gov. Ralph Northam to ban the sale of certain semiautomatic firearms, including popular AR-15 style rifles, and silencers and prohibit the possession of magazines that hold more than 12 rounds.
That’s right…ownership of “high capacity” magazines would be outlawed.
Virginia’s gun-grabbing legislators apparently expect the state’s gun owners to either destroy or turn in their newly-verboten magazines should this bill become law.
The bill also expands the definition of "assault firearm" and prohibits any person from importing, selling, transferring, manufacturing, purchasing, possessing or transporting an assault firearm. A violation would be a Class 6 felony.
It would prohibit a person from carrying a shotgun with a magazine that will hold more than seven rounds of the longest ammunition for which it is chambered in a public place; under existing law, this prohibition applies only in certain localities.
