I don’t know if you heard, but the Virginia State Crime Commission is meeting next week to hear presentations and comments from the public regarding gun control bills. Red flag laws, waiting periods, local firearm bans... There’s even a bill that would make it a CLASS 6 FELONY to own many hunting rifles.
