Gov. Northam and his billionaire allies are desperate to yoke Virginians with some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, and turn hundreds of thousands of law-abiding Virginians into felons. Gov. Northam knows that none of his gun control proposals will make Virginians safer, but it will make it harder for law-abiding Virginians to exercise their constitutional right to self-defense. Click here to find your state legislators and contact them to voice your concern about Gov. Northam's anti-gun agenda.
Don't let Gov. Northam take away your rights and put your safety at risk.
It is critical every gun owner in the Commonwealth contact their legislators, urging them to OPPOSE Governor Northam’s anti-gun agenda as Virginia’s legislative session continues in Richmond!
Will any of Gov. Northam’s gun control proposals make Virginians safer?
So-Called "Universal" Background Checks NO.
Lend your brother a rifle for a deer hunt? Allow your daughter to borrow a handgun for self-defense? You’d all be felons under Gov. Northam’s background check scheme.
"Assault Weapons" Ban NO.
Banning commonly-owned firearms are statistically proven to be ineffective, and SB16 would define assault weapons as accessories and certain pistol grips.
Standard Capacity Magazine Ban NO.
Many commonly-owned handguns by Virginians would not be grandfathered, turning hundreds of thousands of Virginians into felons overnight.
Silencer/Suppressor Ban NO.
Despite its name, firearms are still very loud with using a silencer/suppressor. With rigorous federal regulations already in place, Virginia should not penalize law-abiding Virginians.
One-Gun-A-Month Purchase Law NO.
Virginia’s law-abiding citizens were exempt from previous one-gun-a-month legislation; Gov. Northam would penalize millions for the actions of one individual.
Requiring Reporting Lost or Stolen Firearms NO.
With federal stolen firearms tracking, individuals are already incentivized to report stolen weapons, while criminals remain outside the system.
Say NO to Gov. Northam's extreme gun control agenda. This is anti-gun politics as usual. Let's demand real solutions from Richmond, not failed gun control schemes.
Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the "lobbying" arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
