Proposed VA Bill--outlaw suppressors in VA

Post by johndoe3 » Sat Jan 11, 2020 1:22 pm ... ppressors/

HB961 filed in Virginia would make it a felony to own/possess a suppressor in VA after a 6 month period giving "subjects" (in the mind of Democrat controllers) in the commonwealth a chance to dispose of them or move them to another State.
A bill put forward by Delegate Mark Levine (D) would make it a felony to own legally purchased firearm suppressors in Virginia.

Suppressors fall under the purview of the National Firearms Act of 1934, which means the sale of the devices is overseen by various federal agencies...

Under Levine’s bill, H.B.961, Virginians who have undergone the legal process to acquire a suppressor would be labeled felons after the passage of a six-month grace period in which suppressors can be transferred to persons out-of-state who are allowed to own them, destroyed or rendered inoperable, or surrendered to a “state or local law enforcement agency.”

On January 9, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Levine’s bill also makes it a felony for Virginians to possess legally purchased AR-15s and “high-capacity” magazines. Virginians who own AR-15s — and other rifles that Democrats describe as “assault weapons” — would be able to apply to the state police for an ownership license, which would allow them to keep their guns and avoid the felony charge.
You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time...and those are pretty good odds.
