Along with the attempt to codify abortion, there is another radical bill being proposed by Democrats in Virginia.
An assault-weapons ban has been filed by Fairfax-area Delegate Dan Helmer in the House and Charlotteville-area Senator Craig Deeds.
HB 2 seeks to “make it a Class 1 misdemeanor for anyone to import, sell, manufacture, purchase, possess, transport or transfer an assault firearm.”
The Bill’s text defines an assault weapons ban as “a semi-automatic center-fire rifle or pistol that expels single or multiple projectiles by action of an explosion of a combustible material with anfixed magazine capacity in excess of 10 rounds.”
Helmer also carried a similar bill in the 2023 legislative session.
