Those Demo Rats in Va introduced a new bill that among other things basically defines any semiautomatic firearm that is CAPABLE of using a detachable magazine of greater than 10 round capacity as an Assault Weapon. Semiauto Shotgun greater than 7 round capacity OR ANY magazine fed. ANY firearm with a fore grip. ANY rifle or shotgun with a protruding handgrip. Thumb hole grip on a shotgun. ANY pistol with a threaded barrel. ALL of these are defined as assault weapons and are listed to be removed from the state, turned in with no compensation, or rendered inoperable.

Socialists most definitely getting their ducks in a row for when they are back in power. Having bills ready to sign. Unlike the GOP with obama care, saying they will repeal it then nothing but crickets when they are in power to make change.

On the other hand when liberals boast about the evil they wish to do if elected,by God you have to give those jack booted thugs credit. They stick together and vote in lock step unison to carry out their treasonous deeds.

looks like a Remington 742 Woodmaster semiautomatic rifle would still be legal under those definitions. As would a Colt .45 ACP and a Mossberg 930 autoloading shotgun.

nope. Not only will a greater than 10rnd mag be 'illegal', but so will a pistol CAPABLE of accepting a mag greater than 10rnds.....a 1911 is perfectly capable of accepting an 11+ round mag.

Virginia is getting worse. I guess the ONLY good thing so far is that nothing has been done YET.

The citizens at least from the sources I'm seeing are growing in their push back of these draconian and unconstitutional changes. Sadly, the legislation and governor aren't getting the message.

Yesterday, a new bill was introduced to close down all public shooting/gun ranges

My fear is that the only way change will come if these are passed is as an INSTAGRAM poster put it is to tar and feather the modern-day red coats.

There's your loopholes


Black powder is listed as an explosive


Modern smokeless powder is listed as a propellant


I really don't think it matters, SCOTUS will likely shoot all of them down


The people in Virginia could actually fix this dilemma if they really want to

The only people who should be charged with Sedition, treason and inciting insurrection are the GD LIBTARD , UN Global Communist Masquerading as DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST and those who vote for them as by their own actions are no longer our countrymen and should be treated as such and driven from our shores forever. JMHO and S/FI!
