Virginia Governer wants a special voting session on gun control

Hmm...so the public has forgot the controversy Gov Blackface and the LT. Gov had last year quickly. Now he wants a special vote on gun control.:

https://www.wusa9.com/article/news/l...c-cb3869e39e04

Part of the story:

Virginia governor says he'll have special legislative session on gun control
No date yet, but it will happen later this summer, Gov. Ralph Northam said.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam will summon lawmakers to the state Capitol in coming weeks to take up a package of gun-control legislation he said is urgently needed to prevent killings like Friday's mass shooting in Virginia Beach.

Northam, a Democrat confronted with a Republican-controlled General Assembly in the middle of an election year, said he plans to convene a special legislative session later this summer but has not determined a date.

He wants legislators to hear from the public about the need for common-sense laws related to guns and accessories, saying last week's mass shooting in Virginia Beach calls for "votes and laws, not thoughts and prayers." He also wants every legislator to go on record for or against his proposals during the special session rather than avoid tough votes by quietly killing the bills in subcommittee.

"The nation will be watching," the governor said, four days after Virginia Beach employee DeWayne Craddock used two semi-automatic handguns, a silencer and extended ammunition magazines to slaughter 12 people at a municipal building. Craddock then was killed in a gunbattle with police.

Republicans previously have rejected Northam's gun control bills out of hand, but a top GOP lawmaker signaled Monday that he's open to a legislative debate.

Northam's bills include include a ban on silencers and high-capacity magazines, as well as a broadening of the ability of local governments to limit guns in city buildings. The governor said he also wants mandatory, universal background checks before gun purchases; a limit of one handgun purchase a month; and a "red flag" law that would allow authorities to seize the weapons of those who are a threat to themselves or others.

But Northam said other shootings, including the death last month of a 9-year-old girl who was shot at a community cookout in Richmond, also are driving his call for a special session.

"It's an emergency here in Virginia, and it's time to take action," Northam said. "Every one of these pieces of legislation will save lives."

The governor has long advocated for stricter gun control. He made the issue a top priority of his 2017 gubernatorial campaign, drawing from his experience as a pediatrician and Army doctor who has treated children and soldiers wounded by firearms.

In a statement, GOP Speaker Kirk Cox dismissed the governor's call for a special session as "hasty and suspect when considered against the backdrop of the last few months" — a reference to the blackface photo scandal that nearly destroyed Northam's career.

Cox said the Republicans instead will put forward legislation to toughen penalties — including new, mandatory minimum sentences — for those who use guns to commit crimes.

"We believe addressing gun violence starts with holding criminals accountable for their actions, not infringing on the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens," he said.

Gov. Coonman can take his "special session" and put it up his butt along with his "Healing tour" and rotate!

How many 'silencers' did the VA Tech killer use to kill all those people?

That should be the question a good reporter or politician should force this asshole to answer.

Yep, but I don't think he would just leave it alone to it's own end. He would be kind enough to "make the baby comfortable", whatever the hell that means!

If "Coonman", his Lt. Gov. and alleged rapist Fairfax, and that AG, "Blackface" Herring had been Republicans, all three would have been ousted months ago.

He’s truly an embarrassment to the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Abortions kill more Americans than murder by guns. 60+ million kids destroyed by liberals since 1971. If they will kill their own kids then they will have no problem murdering you to get the lifestyle they want.

Bathtubs and swimming pools kill far more children than firearms

As appalling as Abortions stats are wimmins have been inducing miscarriage for thousands of years. It really only became an issue when Men stuck their noses into it all
anyways when debating with liberals you gain no ground arguing Abortion but you can often make some headway pointing out the actual leading causations of deaths

for example refer to inflatable kiddie pools as Dead Pools noting child drowning stats in them, drives wackos to froth at the mouth jim

I'm apathetic regarding Abortion anyways
It's really not all that many Conservative types engaging in them. Reality is sadly without Abortion we would have MILLIONS more Progressive types consuming our Nation's moral fiber
Damned if you do or don't friend.
