Gun-rights supporters demonstrate in front of state Capitol in Richmond, Va., Monday morning Jan. 20, 2020. Gun-rights activists and other

groups are descending on Virginia’s capital city of Richmond to protest plans by the state’s Democratic leadership to pass gun-control .

 

 

RICHMOND, Va. — The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others.

 

The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House.

 

Republicans blasted the bill as an assault on gun rights and civil liberties. Democrats said the bill was a thoughtful measure that would preserve due process while also protecting people against potential gun violence.

 

The bill is one of several gun-control measures the new Democratic majority at the General Assembly is set to pass this year.

 

Also on Tuesday, the Democratic-led House killed several pro-gun measures in a subcommittee meeting. Those GOP-backed measures included a bill to allow people to carry concealed handguns without a permit and to repeal a limit on carrying weapons in churches and other places of worship.

 

Tuesday’s legislative action came a day after tens of thousands of gun-rights activists from around the country rallied peacefully at the state Capitol to protest plans by the state’s Democratic leadership to pass gun-control legislation.

Notice how all the MSM are calling it "gun rights" activism instead of 2nd amendment rights?  It's because they are brainwashing Joe and Josephine public into thinking this is all about inanimate objects instead of the God given / natural law  inalienable rights confirmed by not given by the 2nd amendment.  It is about the basic human right to protect ourselves our loved ones and way of life.  It isn't about not wanting our favorite gun(s) taken away from us.  I even caught many "conservative" pundits falling into this trap of semantics and calling it about "gun rights".  Guns don't have rights, but We The People do!  They want to separate this in our minds that this is about human rights, taking away human rights and subvert it to mean owning inanimate objects.  As a human being we have the right to keep and bear arms, personal weapons comparable to personal weapons a soldier may carry for defense, to overthrow tyranny or just the fun of owning and shooting them if that is what we want!
