Democrat Controlled Virginia ‘Working’ On Confiscating Guns From Law Abiding Citizens, Governor Says
During a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Northam “mentioned universal background checks, banning the sale of [semi-automatic firearms] and high-capacity magazines, restoring the law that limits purchases to one gun a month, and a red flag law that would empower a court to temporarily remove a gun from a person deemed to be a risk to himself or others,” The Washington Post reported.

“We will at least start with those,” Northam said.

When asked about confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens, Northam responded “that’s something I’m working [on] with our secretary of public safety,” adding that he will work with anti-gun activists on the issue.

That will teach Virginians to not elect a Blackfaced Govenor.

Surely a flat ban on semi-automatics would get appealed to the SCOTUS with an excellent chance of being struck down?

Keep dreaming if you think the courts will save us. We need to beat them at the ballot box.

The color where a flat ban on semi-auto guns is in direct contradiction to the Heller decision ("common use"), and would therefore have to be struck down unless SCOTUS wants to reverse its own precedent.

I sure wouldn't bet that Roberts won't sell us down the river. I think he's more interested in continuing to be invited to the DC black tie parties, or something.
