Gov. Northam On VA ‘Assault Weapons’ Gun Ban: ‘It’ll Be Back’


When asked about Monday’s failure of the so-called "assault weapons ban" in a Senate Committee, Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA) told MRCTV the bill will “be back next year.”

In a bi-partisan effort the Virginia Senate Judiciary Committee voted to table House Bill 961, also known as the ‘assault weapons ban’ for the rest of the year.

“The assault weapons ban and the high-capacity magazines we’ll work on that for the next year, but it’ll be back next year, so we’ll continue to deal with it,” Northam told MRCTV.

Was the failure of the measure due to elected officials listening to gun rights supporters rallying across the state? Or are Democratic lawmakers biding time to try to force through more gun control measures later? MRCTV took to the streets to find out people’s thoughts on the issue, including Gov. Ralph Northam.
