Virginia Democratic Controlled Legislature to Reintroduce Gun Control Legislation in 2020
The Virginia State Crime Commission cancelled their planned November 12 meeting regarding gun control.
The meeting was scheduled to discuss eight bills proposed by Gov. Ralph Northam during the July special session.
Republican Majority Leader Todd Gilbert also stated the November 18 reconvened special session will become pro forma and lawmakers will not have to report to the General Assembly.
With the Democrats controlling the Legislature, lawmakers are expected to reintroduce the gun control issue in the upcoming January session.
