NRA Defies Virginia Gun Ban by Handing Out 30-Round Magazines

In defiance of expected upcoming gun control legislation in the state of Virginia, the National Rifle Association handed out 30-round magazines to pro-Second Amendment Virginians, as Breitbart reports.

About 1,000 such magazines were delivered to the NRA by Magpul Industries, with the NRA subsequently handing them out in the capitol city of Richmond on Monday, as Governor Ralph Northam (D-Va.) is pushing for stricter gun control legislation following Democrats’ takeover of the legislature last year.

One such proposed piece of legislation is HB 961, authored by Delegate Mark Levine (D-Va.), which would ban, among other things, “high-capacity magazines, certain triggers, and suppressors.” Under this bill, those who own such accessories can apply to keep them, but must enter their name and information into a database. Otherwise, gun owners will be forced to hand over any such accessories to the government, or else they will be charged with a felony.
