    Yes.....the reason we have gun crime in this country is the democrat party. The democrat party judges, prosecutors and in this case, politicians.....do not want to stop gun crime. How do we know? They keep letting violent, repeat gun offenders out of prison, and they prevent laws that would keep them locked up...

    Virginia Dems Kill Bill That Targeted Criminals Who Use Guns

    While Virginia Democrats are merrily approving gun control laws aimed at the state’s legal gun owners, they apparently aren’t interested in focusing on violent criminals who use firearms in the commission of a crime.

    HB 1175 would have increased the penalty for using or brandishing a firearm while committing certain felonies, which seems like a pretty common sense bill to me. Instead, members of the House Public Safety Committee rejected the measure on Tuesday, while approving a number of gun bills that are meant to restrict the rights of legal gun owners in the name of public safety.
    ------

    So they’re okay with making it a felony to continue to possess your 15-round magazine or to transfer a firearm without a background check, but the status quo is fine when it comes to punishing those who use guns in the commission of a crime.

    This is insane.......can anyone who supports dumb gun control laws explain why the democrat party refuses to add time to actual criminals who commit actual gun crimes?

    The democrat party does not care about gun crime. They show it with every ruling that let's a violent gun offender out of jail and prison and every Bill they pass or block that allows actual criminals who use guns in actual crimes to walk free.....

    It is totally insane

    surely criminals using guns should be taken off the streets for decades so they are no longer a threat

    Then who would do the killing the democrats need to demand gun control?

    The people who use guns to kill people in this country are repeat offenders, not normal gun owners.....they have long histories of crime and violence and likely multiple felony convictions for gun crimes.....and yet they are out walking the streets and end up killing other criminals or innocent people.....and they are out on the streets because of the democrat party..........

    A week or two ago the democrats in one state kept gang members from being put on red flag lists.....remember that?

    As I've said, the Democrats in Richmond have every intention of turning Virginia into California.

    The people of Virginia voted in this government, so they are getting exactly what they asked for.
