    Only two out of the US congress....just wait till they warm up the pen. I feel this year there will be dozens, but hopefully, they will never go anywhere further than the US senate.

    A whole bunch of antigun bills have just been introduced in the Virginia legislature -- "Red Flag" seizures, one-handgun-a-month, bump stocks, civil liability for criminal misuse of stolen guns, UBC's, etc. But the one that worries me the most is an AWB that would supposedly outlaw any semiautomatic with a magazine capacity of more than 10 rounds (and presumably, the magazines themselves). Details are sparse. The actual legislative language of this particular bill hasn't been published yet.

    The governor is pushing hard on all of these. The Republicans have a one-vote margin in each of the houses of the legislature, so they should theoretically be able to stop all of these bills. But there could be some defections in the name of "bipartisanship." But the worst part is coming with the legislative elections this fall, when the Democrats are expected to gain control of both houses. After that it will be open season on guns.

    Please understand that we do NOT post bills here until we have seen the full text of them ... yes there are bills that come in but they have NO text so we don't post them ...it would be unfair and unwise to post anything about them until we can see that text

    Thank you for understanding

    Here in New Mexico it is going to be pretty rocky. New demo governor along with both chambers of the legislature firmly under blue control.

    Moved to committee today in Virginia legislature: HB 2492 that will ban possession of the following with no grandfather clause.
    C. For purposes of this section, "assault firearm" means any semi-automatic center-fire rifle or pistol that expels single or multiple projectiles by action of an explosion of a combustible material and is equipped at the time of the offense with a magazine which that will hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition or designed by the manufacturer to accommodate a silencer or equipped with a folding stock

    From VA legislation tracker, the relevant part of HB 2492 is: http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?191+ful+HB2492
    For the purposes of VA law, if I remember correctly, "designed by the manufacturer to accommodate a silencer" means anything with a threaded barrel.

    That Remington 700 with a threaded barrel? Assault weapon.

    Ruger MK with a threaded barrel? Assault weapon.

    I just read the bill. What a mess. It's based on existing law, which was enacted after the Kansi incident and is poorly drafted to begin with. Magazine capacity of over ten rounds is important if the gun is equipped with such a magazine "at the time of the offense." That means you should be OK as long as the magazine is out of the gun. (Buy 10-rounders for all your pistols just to be safe.) More worrisome is the language "designed to accommodate a silencer" (threaded barrel) and the mention of a folding stock. Would pinning a flash hider permanently in place, and pinning a folding stock permanently in the open position be enough to get around this? That would remain to be seen. I'm at least glad they didn't mention bayonet lugs.

    The magazine ban provision applies to "importation, sale, barter, or transfer" of over-10-round magazines. Mere possession is not affected. That means that (unlike what was done in New Jersey) the magazine provision has a form of grandfathering. They avoid the compensation issue and also potential conflict with the Virginia Uniform Machine Gun Act.
    No. It has to be a semiautomatic before the threaded barrel becomes relevant.
    No. It has to be a center-fire weapon.
