Democrats on Virginia’s House of Delegates Public Safety Committee passed legislation Friday making it a felony to possess a suppressor in the state after July 1, 2020.

The felony applies to all suppressors, including those legally purchased through the federal background check and registered with the ATF.

The Washington Examiner reports the ban is expected to pass in the full Democrat-controlled House of Delegates. The opportunity to stop the ban will occur in the Senate, where a few Democrats have expressed hesitancy to support bans on firearms or certain accessories.

For example, on January 29, 2020, Breitbart News reported Virginia State Sen. Lynwood Lewis (D) made clear he will not support a magazine or firearm bans. He indicated his focus in solely on strengthening laws that deal with access to firearms, not laws that prohibit certain firearms or related hardware.

The bill that bans suppressor possession also bans “high capacity” magazines, making it precisely the type of legislation Lewis said he would not support.

Gov. Ralph Northam (D) made his plans for a war on guns clear in early November 2019 and has not relented. Since then Virginia Democrats have put forward legislation criminalizing private gun sales and punishing gun owners for not reporting stolen guns within 24 hours. They have also introduced legislation banning certain ammunition magazines, suppressors, and requiring owners of certain rifles to acquire a license from the state police.

Virginia Democrats are also pushing legislation to mandate that law-abiding citizens are not allowed to buy more than one handgun a month.

@$%@^.gif Democrats!


On a side note: Any Virginia citizens owning suppressors can stay legal by shipping/delivering their suppressors to me here in NC, where I will keep them safe for you! evillaugh.gif

Suppressors and mags, incrementalism is how it happens. I’m surprised it is 12 rounds and not 10 as it is here in Ca. They are going all out in Virginia despite the 2a sanctuary’s and the large rally. Bye bye 2a there.

Well this is kind of f'd up. They have federal "permission" with a tax stamp to own one. Went through a back round check finger printed, paper work, and wait time and totally legit. Whos going to reimburse them for their property?

I would make the same offer but it's already a felony to own one here in Gestapo York.

Same thing happened in NY with certain guns, mags etc although they did give the option to register some things while others were just banned. The registered ones will be banned at some point too. Everyone did different things around here. Some modified them so they weren't "illegal", others got rid of them while from what i hear many just didn't comply. I know some of the local C&R collectors registered mags greater than 10 rounds, they gave you that option for stuff 50 years(i think that was the number) or older. Mostly that covered guys with M-1 carbines and a small amount of handguns.
