The gun grabbers in Virginia have wasted little time attacking the 2nd Amendment.
Just this week they passed three gun control bills through their state Senate.
One bill restricts how many firearms you can buy in a single month. Another bill allows local municipalities to restrict firearms on public property. The final bill implements Universal Background Checks.
Sadly, several Republican Senate lawmakers jumped on board the gun control bandwagon.
In addition to these gun control bills, the Governor has banned firearms at the state capitol.
An appeal was made by Gun Owners of America and the Virginia Citizens Defense League to block the Governor’s order, but the Virginia Supreme Court upheld the ban.
And just to ensure the rest of the country can feel the Virginia Democrats desire to attack gun owners, the state has now revoked concealed carry reciprocity agreements with 25 states!
The claim from the Virginia state government is that the 25 states don’t have strict enough permit requirements to maintain reciprocity.
While some states change reciprocity with other states occasionally, we have never seen such a massive change from one state, all at once.
Out of the five states in the Northwest, four states reciprocity agreements with the state of Virginia have been revoked!
Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and Washington have now all lost their reciprocity with Virginia.
To our knowledge, the reciprocity agreement with the state of Oregon is still intact.
If there was ever an example of what will happen to your gun rights when a “Red” state turns “Blue,” Virginia is a shining example.
This is just the beginning.
How much more are gun owners in Virginia going to have to fight against this year and the years to come?
For now, gun owners in the Northwest, other than Oregon, can’t carry concealed in the state of Virginia.
