VA Gov Signs Raft Of Gun Control Measures Into Law

USA Today reports:

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam signed a slate of gun control measures into law Friday that will increase background checks, limit handgun purchases and establish a so-called “red flag” law.

Guns became a divisive issue in Virginia after Democrats won full control of the state’s General Assembly in November, and Northam, a Democrat, promised to pass the host of restrictions.

The signing comes almost three months after more than 20,000 gun owners descended on the state capitol in Richmond to protest the measures. It’s also been almost a year since the deadly Virginia Beach shooting left 12 people dead plus the shooter at a municipal building.
