RPV Statement on ‘Assault Weapons Ban’

Richmond, VA – House Democrats took another step to make hundreds of thousands of law-abiding Virginians felons today by passing authoritarian legislation to strip the Commonwealth of its Second Amendment right.

“The Democrats want a vulnerable and subservient citizenry,” said RPV Chairman Jack Wilson. “Most of these General Assembly Democrats can’t tell the difference between an ‘assault weapon’ and a hole in the ground, yet they think they can regulate the Bill of Rights.”

“Virginia won’t go down without a fight. Republicans are organized, energized, and inspired to turn out in 2020 to re-elect President Trump and take back the General Assembly in 2021.”
