There is no such thing as an “assault weapon” – that term is wholly made up (thanks joshsugarmann) with the specific intent of confusing those who are not knowledgeable about weapons in general and firearms in particular. A lot of folks (including some of the previous commenters) conflate the bogus term with assault rifles (sturmgewehr to be specific) which does have a legal definition. If our side can’t get terminology correct it is small wonder that those who are weapons uneducated get confused so easily. BTW – I suspect that a lot of the bureaucrats who use such terms (like… Read more »

To the moderators is History to hard to understand? The intent of the 2nd Amendment is to I sure that America not become a country where the citizens are defenseless. Why do you think that the Democrat party is pushing gun control so hard, they are Communist trying to destroy AMERICA. George Soros owns the Democrat party and everyone of its leaders. We must control the leadership not the Individual. May America be Free Forever.

What is the problem history is recorded, the desires of our founders are known. Only the Democrats lie about it.

All firearms arecovered under the second Amendment,irregardless of make ,model, or magazine capacity. When the Second Amendment was written muskets were the state of the art weapons. It’s no different today. Semi-autos are not state of th art. People who want to ban them are anti-American liberal socialists. They spread lies, misinformeation and propaganda. They are just trying to frighten the ignorant !…

How stupid can the Democrats both leaders and followers become. The 2nd amendment is for the people to be able to defend themselves from a disgraceful and abusive government. By reading the discussions behind the 2nd Amendment it can be understood that each citizen can own any defensive weapon that the government can developed and posess. Including nukes and F 18s.

Just say “NO” to Red Flag Gun Laws. They make all responsible gun owners unable to protect themselves and their families.

Mine will be registered, in my memory banks where it can quickly be retrieved against the brown shirt, black faced, me-too, baby killers. They started it and the people will rise to the top.

Awsome President Trump, You holding the unspeakable, strategically , precisely timed as the far leftists put the NOOSES around their necks with the rope U gave them. Their blinding rage, arrogance, false pride, greed of money and power is fast leading to their demise. Virginia being in grave jepority of losses of second amendment rights, the state is ripe for Trump to help win this election any other state’s from them electing the house from the blue wave headed by Pelosi / Friends. ” We The People” see the crazy dems as out of control and sold us out, thus… Read more »

I sort of can understand it, but I don’t like it. I, personally, don’t have & NEVER have had ANY guns & NEVER WILL HAVE any, but yet it is sort of like taking a right away from us. If suddenly our goverment becomes as it was when our forefathers left England then you will know where all the GOOD guys are who have guns & the government will be able to take away theirs, but not the guns from the BAD guys who NEVER WILL have registered them defeating the purpose of registration.

Yes, so-called “assault weapons” are covered by the 2nd amendment. The 2nd amendment doesn’t establish any Rights, it recognizes our natural Rights and limits the government’s ability to take away or limit those Rights. The 2nd amendment wasn’t just about hunting, personal defense, target practice or even repelling the invasion of a foreign nation. The founding fathers in their infinite wisdom foresaw the day when citizens may have to rise up to protect themselves and their Rights against a tyrannical government and it seems that time is coming very soon. VA is the definition of a tyrannical government and citizens… Read more »

This is a process. The Virginia House was corrupted by Soros and Bloomberg money that was used to influence the elections. This should have been illegal, but it is what it is. As a result, they have both a Democrat Governor and House. They have decided that this assault on the second amendment is necessary. When it passes, it WILL be contested in court for good reason. I believe it will go all the way to the Supreme Court where it will be ruled unconstitutional. You see, the States have most of the Rights, but the Constitution protects a few.… Read more »

The second amendment as written…is having the citizens armed to the teeth…to defeat a malicious government that seeks to disarm the citizens. If you give up weapons for security and freedom ….you will get neither of the two.

This is a DIRECT attack on the Second Amendment!!! Every firearm has its base from a “weapon of war”. Really wish someone would educate all the rest of us law abiding Americans on what an “assault weapon” is!! I have sporting rifles, center fire rifles, rim fire rifles and pistols, shotguns, semi automatic pistols, revolvers and BB guns!!! Which ones of these are assault weapons?? Last I checked, all of my firearms are living happily together with my family and the dogs!! Not one assault or act of violence!! These idiots are just provoking the wrong people!!!

The Virginia legislature is totally full of BS!
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result
I.E. CHICAGO!!!

The 2nd. Amendment defends any and all guns!

If the supreme court doesn’t overturn these unconstitutional laws I will sell my property and vacate Virginia leaving it to the Commies!!!

The federal government has the only authority to designate weapons under federal
law. The states passing laws to add certain weapons to the “outlaw” status would
be shot down by the SCOTUS. Bloomberg bought the VA governor, both house in
the state legislature and wants to make VA as state to be the standard for the US. The
people of VA will have to take action, hopefully. It is the standard for anti second amendment action.

He already tried that in NYC and it didn’t turn out well for ordinary citizens! I can bet you his bodyguards have guns though!

The federal gov’s only position is to protect the constitution, which includes the second amendment. It does not have authority to designate anything under the law. This has long entered the slippery slope since their machine gun ban. It is not constitutional no matter how one looks at it. Question everything they do and say and remember nullification as it really is our government, not theirs. Most are sociopathic criminals that go into gov. to protect themselves from the laws that are truly reasonable. If laws were effective, there would be no murders. Just Consider and think.

Democrats think they figure away to make everyone a criminal, When they put your name in the criminal data base, that means your a criminal , to the rest of the world also, Dont vote Democrat.

Assault weapons are banned for most anyway. These rifles can go fully automatic. The only difference between an AR and my dads old rifle he used for small game is the AR looks meaner. The left is afraid of you. After all, if you own a decent firearm you could take back your evil government that seeks to control you
Should need be. Maybe soon if this keeps up. Safety is not what they are concerned about.

Virginia need to remove these fool! Read the second amendment words for words. Does it say what kind of GUNS? No it doesn’t! These LIBERAL Democrat just like to bring crap up they can’t explain! So they decide to call it whatever they want to!

Assault weapons are protected by the 2nd amendment. The Founding Fathers stated that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”. Using the word militia more than implies that the amendment applies to personal weapons of war, it requires it. i would not want to be part of a militia that is not able to use weapons of war. Additionally, when the second amendment was written the rifles that citizens had and used against the British were more advanced then the muskets of the British. That implies that citizens should be allowed the most cutting… Read more »

That places them at odds with the constitution with their definition of “assault” weapon because they have no clue as to what a real military weapon is about. Move the state areas that are against this insanity to West Virginia.

Yes, assault wepons are protected by the 2nd ammendment. Period. If we just enforced the existing laws that would be more than sufficient.

The existing laws violate the 2nd amendment too! Through re-interpretation, mis-interpretation and mis-representation misguided judges and politicians have all but nullified the 2nd amendment, all in the name of “safety” and “security”, neither of which has been provided. It’s really all about a power grab and they know that the 2nd amendment was enacted for just such a thing, so they weaken it, step on it and nullify it so that the people can’t fight back. They turn law abiding citizens into criminals and make it easier for criminals to prey on law abiding citizens. It’s a a disgrace and… Read more »
