Virginia Democrats Introduce Even More Gun Control Bills

For the first time in a generation, all the levers of power in Virginia are controlled by Democrats.

Governor Ralph Northam (D) is pushing the incoming Virginia General Assembly to pursue an uncompromising, anti-gun agenda.

To that end, Delegate-elect Democrat Dan Helmer announced yesterday that he is introducing more draconian gun control bills – including one that would widely ban indoor gun ranges.

TownHall's Julio Rosas explains:

HB567 will implement a ban on indoor shooting ranges in private buildings with "large numbers of employees" because of "recent workplace shootings." The bill would ban the ranges if it is in a building that has more than 50 employees working in said building. Indoor ranges would be required to maintain a log of each shooter's name, phone number, address, and the law-enforcement agency where such user is employed and the indoor range verifies each shooter's identity and address by requiring all users to present a government-issued identification card.

HB568 will ban open carry of firearms in private vehicles, with Helmer calling it "absurd that a loaded gun can be left unattended in a car's glove box." Gun owners would be required to secure their firearm in a locked container.

HB569 will "ensure concealed carry permit holders from out-of-state have permits that meet Virginia's standards," with Helmer stating that Virginia will no longer "allow a domestic abuser in another state to carry concealed weapons."
