A Few Excellent Firearms Bills by Senators Favola and Marsden; Two Godawful Bills by Delegates Pogge, "Sideshow Bob"

Wednesday, January 6, 2016

With the Virginia General Assembly almost ready to rev up its 2016 session, the bills are pouring in now. Here are a few excellent ones, by Senators Barbara Favola (D) and Dave Marsden (D) dealing with firearms near schools, preventing terrorists and little kids from getting fireamrs. There are also a couple really awful ones: by far-right winger Del. Brenda Pogge (R) preventing Virginia from in any way enforcing or implementing "Obamacare;" and one by raving anti-LGBT bigot Del. "Sideshow Bob" Marshall (R, of course), prohibiting localities from prohibiting anti-LGBT discrimination. Great job by Senators Favola and Marsden; appalling as usual by the right wingers. Check out the bills below, and click to "embiggen."
