Yesterday, the General Assembly passed Virginia’s two year budget. Back in December, outgoing Governor Ralph Northam had proposed $27.4 million of taxpayer money to go towards anti-gun propaganda to further erode Second Amendment rights. Former Governor Terry McAuliffe had run for another term with that same idea. The budget that passed instead includes $13 million towards various efforts to reduce crime and violence, including ensuring that violent criminals are held accountable for their actions. This represents a victory for the law-abiding gun owners of Virginia, who turned out to the polls in November to reject the Northam-McAuliffe gun ban agenda.
