Virginia Democrats Pressure Counties To Ban Loaded Shotguns, Rifles On Roads
A group of Northern Virginia lawmakers, frustrated over a failure to pass gun-safety measures in Richmond, is pushing the state’s two largest jurisdictions to use an existing law that allows local governments to bar people from driving with a loaded shotgun or rifle. Seeking to capitalize on momentum from last week’s March for Our Lives, 10 Democratic state legislators sent a letter to Prince William County’s Board of Supervisors on Wednesday that urged them to adopt an ordinance regulating the transport of loaded weapons.
