The insidious ideas of gun control and civilian disarmament continue to spread.
In the wake of vetoing legislation that would have allowed women to quickly arm themselves against domestic abusers, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) is now pushing for handgun rationing in Virginia.
He is proposing a legislative amendment that mandates law-abiding Virginians can only buy one handgun a month.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that McAuliffe’s amendment would criminalize law-abiding citizens by making it “a Class 1 misdemeanor — punishable by up to a year in jail and $2,500 fine — for anyone other than a licensed firearms dealer to buy more than one handgun within a 30-day period.”
A handgun rationing law was previously on the books in Virginia but was repealed in 2012 by Gov. Bob McDonnell (R).
McAuliffe wants to bar law-abiding citizens from buying more than one handgun a month because of an “indictment that charged 22 Virginians with running more than 200 guns bought in Virginia north to New York and selling them to an undercover officer.”
