Virginia House Democrats Pass ‘Assault Firearm’ Ban Targeting Semiautomatic Rifles With Threaded Barrels

by Chelsea Betonie

The Virginia House Democrats have approved a ban on “assault firearms” that would prohibit certain semiautomatic centerfire rifles.

The ban specifies that if these rifles have features such as a threaded barrel, vertical fore grip, sound suppressor, muzzle brake, or folding/telescoping/collapsible rear stock, they fall into the prohibited category.

Additionally, the ban extends to semiautomatic centerfire pistols with a detachable magazine and threaded barrel allowing for the use of a sound suppressor or flash suppressor.

This combination alone would make many popular semiautomatic pistols from various manufacturers ineligible under the ban.

The House Democrats’ emphasis on “sound suppressors” – devices that reduce but not eliminate sound – implies that they are prohibiting firearms based on features that offer health benefits, such as protecting the hearing of target shooters and hunters, as well as benefiting the environment.

According to Guns.com, the Firearms Policy Coalition has stated its intention to file a lawsuit if the ban is enacted into law.

Looks like the Democrat Socialist in Virgina have gone full tilt Communist. They have one problem
and that currently is the Governor. Apparently the voters there are totally ignorant or else their
election system is questionable. This will be a very interesting situation for other elections across
out Nation if they succeed.

The solution is simple. Virginians should disobey the law and shoot back if the state attempts to confiscate them. This is where we are now at in America.

We should have overthrown this corrupt federal government 30 years ago and re-established the Constitution in strict compliance to the founder’s vision after toppling the corruption of both political parties.

I pretty sure Governor Youngkin will veto this Communist legislation.

If these Democrats can’t read and understand the constitution they should be fired on the spot.
The constitution is there for a reason so assholes like Democrats can’t destroy America
Can you imagine if ever asshole had there own way of what they think is for the better we would be controlled by asshole Democrats and Biden. Time to take back America and get rid of government corruption and corrupt politicians. Look how much money would be saved. FJB

Supreme Court decision – Marbury vs Madison on 2nd Amendment – Any law repugnant to the Constitution is Null and Void – clearly states – the 2nd Amendment is an Inalienable Right and Shall Not Be Infringed
