Virginia Democrats plan to introduce several gun control measures during the legislative session, including an “assault weapons” ban, expanded gun-free zones for concealed carry, and requirements for gun locks.

They also aim to establish liability for gun owners if a minor uses the gun in a crime and to ban concealed carry in restaurants serving alcohol.

These efforts were discussed during Virginia’s Lobby Day, coinciding with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, with both pro- and anti-Second Amendment voices expressing their views. (Trending: 2024 Miss America Winner Crowned)

Virginia House Speaker Don L. Scott Jr. said, “There is no honor in appropriating his memory for nefarious goals. So often his words are used by politicians … who stand in direct opposition to his beliefs or refused to take on the mantle of leadership toward racial inequality or toward income inequality or toward making sure our communities are safer.”

The bills’ opponents have referenced Martin Luther King Jr.’s desire for a concealed handgun permit, which he was denied in Democrat-controlled Alabama in 1956.

Radio host Stacy Washington said, “Martin Luther King Jr., was denied a concealed carry permit. His life was threatened a lot and he really wanted to protect himself with a concealed permit but he could not because he could not get one. This is hold-over racism from the Democrats and their Jim Crow era controls and all that.”
