Virginia: The "intent" to own a firearm with more than 7 rounds can soon make you a felon
In the ongoing chess match between good and evil, the citizenry of Virginia (the good) seem to have the upper hand (the U.S. Constitution) over Governor Northam, his AG Mark Herring and the Democrat-led General Assembly (the evil).
The Virginia Citizens Defense League is taking the state-level elected officials to task over the push to ban and confiscate practically every weapon in the Commonwealth.
Two pieces of legislation have been pre-filed for the 2020 session. They’ll be taken up after the new politicians are sworn in on January 8th, creating a shift in power and putting the Democrats in that state in the driver’s seat.
Two major parts of proposed new laws are:
If a gun, (pistol, rifle or shotgun) CAN accept a Magazine over 7 or 10, the weapon is deemed an assault weapon and is therefore illegal. You do not have to be in possession of the magazine or even have it in the weapon.
The second part is a bill seeking to criminalize the intention to do something, NOT the doing or planning, but the “Intention”.
“A semi-automatic, centerfire, firearm equipped with a folding stock, or equipped at the time with a magazine capable of holding more than 20 rounds, or capable of accommodating a silencer/suppressor.”
“Any person who sells, barters, gives or furnishes, or has in his possession or under his control with the intent of selling, bartering, giving or furnishing, any firearm to any person he knows is prohibited from possessing or transporting a firearm pursuant to 18.2-308.1:1, 18.2-308.1:2, 18.2-308.1:3, 18.2-308.2, 18.2-308.2:01, or 18.2-308.7 is guilty of a Class 4 felony.
So merely thinking about owning a rifle makes you a class 4 felon.
I am a place in my life where peace is a priority. I make deliberate life choice to protect my mental, emotional and spiritual state.
