BREAKING: Virginia Senate Strikes Down Gun Ban Bill — 4 Dems Joined Republican Opposition

This kind of news makes me completely euphoric.

According to The Dan Bongino Show:

After Democrats took complete control over Virginia’s state government in January, they wasted no time in ushering through a slough of gun control bills.

Lawmakers have thus far passed nearly a dozen gun control bills, all of which were opposed by the state’s gun owners, but still are minor compared to the so-called “assault weapons ban (AWB)” that Governor Ralph Northam had pushed for as the most encompassing piece of legislation.

I absolutely love when people come together, especially when they’re from the other side of the aisle, to fight for our Constitutional rights.

Northam even attempted to reclassify assault weapons in order to include shotguns and handguns.

More from The Dan Bongino Show:

While Northam did largely ignore the 20,000+ peaceful gun owners who rallied against his gun ban, the proposed AWB did end up getting watered down. Earlier in the month,  in a 12-9 vote, the House Public Safety Committee voted to ban “assault weapons” which now included the popular AR-15 and AK-47. The bill also banned magazines that hold more than 12 rounds, and sound suppressors, effective July 1. But the bill didn’t survive the Senate.

As Richmond local network WHSV reports: Northam’s push to ban the sale of assault weapons has failed after members of his own party balked at the proposal.

Just remember, just because the opposition is more vocal doesn’t mean they’ll win.

Quite frankly, the smaller dogs bark the loudest.

More from The Dan Bongino Show:

Virginia’s push for gun control saw immediate resistance, even when it was merely being discussed ahead of Democrats taking control of the state government. Within just a month-and-a-half of Northam publicly floating an AWB, 90% of the state’s counties (which contain 40% of the population) voted to become “Second Amendment Sanctuaries” and refuse to enforce all future gun control legislation.

Keep in mind that this means we’ll be at peace with this for only one year, so I definitely anticipate this will be brought back once that year mark is reached.

I have faith in our country and in our people to fight for their rights.
