On Friday the Virginia state House committee passed a bill that would ban the sale of certain semi-automatic firearms, including the popular AR-15 style rifles.
The bill is named “H.B. 961” and would also ban silencers and magazines that hold more than 12 rounds. It was passed out of the House Public Safety Committee by a vote of 12-9.
The bill, which has the support of Virginia Gov. Ralph “Blackface” Northam will now make its way to the Democratic-controlled House of Delegates. Pro-Second Amendment patriots packed the committee room for the vote, and when it passed, the crowd went ballistic and even started fighting with police asking them what side they were on.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
The crowd got so rowdy that law enforcement was forced to break it up.
After the vote passed, NRA spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen described the bill as an “egregious gun ban” that will “make millions of law-abiding Virginian’s felons overnight.”
