The legislature in VA is pushing a number of bills that are aimed at "downstate" and conservative, rural, working class people.  Guns are just the first issue to be tackled by the Progressives in Virginia. 

When someone says "school shooting," a lot of otherwise well-intentioned people (e.g., the soccer moms of NoVa) have been told the answer is "gun control," which somehow translates into taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.  Those are the votes the Progs harnessed in the last election, and the people they are pandering to with draconian gun control legislation now.  (My own thinking is that there are lot of closet gun owners in NoVa, people who are professionally successful in this government employee, contractor, IT services-heavy environment, and who want to protect their homes and families.  Living in NoVa, they are just too embarrassed to admit they have a Glock in the dresser drawer).

So lobby day in Virginia went off without any of the violence from all the nasty right wing extremists much to the chagrin of the left wing media and government officials in the state. All those people with all those evil guns and not one violent incident. Contrast that with what we see from all those nice unarmed people we see protesting in places like Portland. Very interesting who the dangerous people really are.

And yet the VA legislature does not allow Republican backed bills that put criminals who use a firearm in jail for a mandatory 5 yr minimum.   So much for “crime control”😏.   It’s about controlling “we the people”, not guns or crime.

They don't hate guns, they hate us. I think people are finally starting to accept that reality.

This. They are not against guns, because the guns will be needed to disarm people. So it’s not that they are anti-gun. They'll need the guns of the police to take away other people’s guns. So they’re very pro-gun; they just believe that only the Government (which is, of course, so reliable, honest, moral and virtuous…) should be allowed to have guns. There is no such thing as gun control. There is only centralizing gun ownership in the hands of a small political elite and their minions.

^ That.
When people ignorant of guns make gun laws, you end up with ignorant gun laws.
