I hope everyone is preparing...our gun rights and many other things are on the line for real come November. PLEASE vote. PLEASE spread the word about what is coming. Join VCDL to help with the fight.

It is clear the current crop of democrats is on a kamikaze course to make Virginia look worse than CA, NY, CT, NJ in one session. I'd recommend taking a look at everything they proposed in January of this year (http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?191+lst+ALL)
1. MAJOR gun control (redefine assault weapon to basically anything semi-auto, ban suppressors, red flag, UBC's, mag cap bans). Leaves us with single shot hunting rifles, shotguns, and revolvers (for now). We will have stricter laws than any state if what they have previously proposed is proposed again).
2. fair housing law - prevents VA localities from not approving low income housing (i.e. like Obama wanted - subsidized housing in rural counties, "rich" areas. your county rejects it, someone complains, your county broke the law). Hello low income housing in your mcmansion neighborhood and your rural county.
3. voting by mail
4. no ID requirements for voting
5. replacement of non-gender terms of all state laws (no more "husband/wife"). change VA Constitution to remove "man and woman" from description of marriage.
6. election day - new school holiday
7. early voting without reason
8. all high school and college kids given voter registration forms (required)
9. repeal Right to Work law
10. Minimum wage goes to $9 an hour
11. abortion - removes requirement for ultrasound and written consent
12. expansion of definition of "hate crimes" and punishments

It happened. Prepare accordingly for January. As written, there is NO GRANDFATHERING. Not for rifles, pistols, suppressors, nothing. Destroy it, surrender it, sell it. Please get involved.

HB 2492 was the first one I could find related to magazines and "assault firearms" but I'm sure there are more...

See below for ONE example (there are UBC's, red flag laws and lots of other garbage). In a nutshell, anything semi-auto that is capable of a 10+ round magazine is an "assault firearm" and you can destroy it, surrender it, or sell it out of state or become a felon. Same for suppressors, magazines >10 rounds, etc. Basically all AR15's (rifle or pistol), all semi-auto pistols. Revolvers and single-shot shotguns and "sniper rifles" are all that would be legal. THOSE ARE NEXT - just wait until someone uses a revolver in a shooting...time to rally the troops. Contact your Sheriff, your local board of supervisors, your friends, your neighbors and be ready to stand up and fight.

list from July (special session): https://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?192+lst+ALL

The "ban everything" bill with ~25 co-sponsors, all Democrats: https://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?192+sum+HB4021

Expands the definition of "assault firearm" and prohibits any person from importing, selling, transferring, manufacturing, purchasing, possessing, or transporting an assault firearm. A violation is a Class 6 felony. The bill prohibits a dealer from selling, renting, trading, or transferring from his inventory an assault firearm to any person. The bill also prohibits a person from carrying a shotgun with a magazine that will hold more than seven rounds of the longest ammunition for which it is chambered in a public place; under existing law, this prohibition applies only in certain localities. The bill makes it a Class 6 felony to import, sell, transfer, manufacture, purchase, possess, or transport large-capacity firearm magazines, silencers, and trigger activators, all defined in the bill. Any person who legally owns an assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator on November 1, 2019, may retain possession until July 1, 2020.

During that time, such person shall (i) render the assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator inoperable; (ii) remove the assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator from the Commonwealth; (iii) transfer the assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator to a person outside the Commonwealth who is not prohibited from possessing it; or (iv) surrender the assault firearm, large-capacity firearm magazine, silencer, or trigger activator to a state or local law-enforcement agency. The bill establishes an appropriation for the fiscal impact of the bill and authorizes the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget to allocate such appropriation among the agencies and programs impacted by the bill.

"Assault firearm" means:

1. A semi-automatic center-fire rifle that expels single or multiple projectiles by action of an explosion of a combustible material with a fixed magazine capacity in excess of 10 rounds;

2. A semi-automatic center-fire rifle that expels single or multiple projectiles by action of an explosion of a combustible material that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine and has one of the following characteristics: (i) a folding or telescoping stock; (ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the rifle; (iii) a thumbhole stock; (iv) a second handgrip or a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand; (v) a bayonet mount; (vi) a grenade launcher; (vii) a flare launcher; (viii) a silencer; (ix) a flash suppressor; (x) a muzzle brake; (xi) a muzzle compensator; (xii) a threaded barrel capable of accepting (a) a silencer, (b) a flash suppressor, (c) a muzzle brake, or (d) a muzzle compensator; or (xiii) any characteristic of like kind as enumerated in clauses (i) through (xii);

3. A semi-automatic center-fire pistol that expels single or multiple projectiles by action of an explosion of a combustible material with a fixed magazine capacity in excess of 10 rounds;
