“Virginia had a one-handgun-a-month law in effect for nearly twenty years that was extremely successful in keeping firearms out of our communities and out of the hands of dangerous individuals.”
The real goal is to keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens.
GOOCHLAND, Va. — A Goochland Circuit Court judge denied a challenge from gun rights groups Thursday to block the one-handgun-a-month law from going into effect on July 1.
The group challenged the constitutionality of the newly reinstated law arguing it violates Virginians’ right to “keep and bear arms.”
Judge Timothy K. Sanner found that the gun lobby was unlikely to succeed in convincing the court that the law was unconstitutional.
