It seems that since the state of Virginia has gone Commando and elected a Democrat governor and both houses of their legislature have a democrat majority so they have rolled out some beefy proposed new laws and it's a slam dunk to have these bills made law. So, read the following carefully because it's a template for every blue state and what they intend to do to grab your guns and in this case, forget compensation, it's strictly confiscation and every penalty for non compliance involves a class 6 felony.

Take the time to read this shit. Then start thinking how the Liberal states can circumvent the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment.

They didn't miss anything except baseball bats.
