There seems to be a shift in priorities in Richmond, and it could spell relief for lovers of the Second Amendment in Virginia — at least in the short term, according to one of my colleagues at sister site Bearing Arms. In a new piece published Wednesday, Cam Edwards discusses the fact that Democrats in the Old Dominion state ran hard on gun bans in the 2019 elections held there.
But, he explains, since they’ve recaptured the majority in the statehouse, Governor Northam and his allies in the legislature, like Democrat Delegate Mark Levine, seem to have stood down from trying to push through a proposed anti-gun bill in the next session, which starts in January, followed by an election to fill Northam’s governor’s seat (which he’s term-limited out of) and House of Delegates seats later in 2021.

WRIC-TV in Richmond reports that Del. Mark Levine, who was the chief sponsor of Gov. Ralph Northam’s attempted ban on modern sporting rifles; “high capacity” ammunition magazines; and legally owned suppressors (which was defeated in the state Senate earlier this year after passing the House of Delegates) says he has no plans to re-introduce the measure in the session which is slated to begin in early January.
Back in April, as he signed a half-dozen new gun control bills into law, Northam vowed that his failed gun ban would return in 2021, telling gun control activists “I will not stop and that piece of legislation will be introduced again to ban assault weapons [from] our streets.”
Now the governor is singing a different tune.
Now, in a new interview with “Cam & Company,” aired Wednesday, Republican Virginia state Del. Kirk Cox, who’s gunning for the GOP nomination in 2021 to fill Northam’s seat, revealed why he believes Virginia state Democrats “back[ed] off of their plans” to enact what Cam calls “the centerpiece” of Northam’s gun-control proposal.
