As Cam noted last week, though, that wasn’t the end of it. A second wave seemed to be brewing.
Well, that second wave definitely seems to be rolling along.
Local officials across Virginia are resisting the push from Virginia Democrats to adopt gun-free zones.
Lawmakers in Powhatan County—located just outside Richmond— unanimously passed a “No Local Gun Control” resolution that would prevent localities from creating gun-free zones. The debate over gun restrictions that dominated Gov. Ralph Northam’s (D.) agenda in the early months of 2020 has moved back to the local level after state Democrats passed a law allowing local governments to ban the presence of firearms at certain buildings and events. Larry Nordvig, the independent Powhatan County supervisor who introduced the county’s resolution, told the Washington Free Beacon he hopes the resolution sends a message to the statehouse.
