I'm trying not to comment too early on the situation in VA, because you never know for sure...

But the draft legislation that was tabled at the end of the last session, when the GOP was still in power, was pretty draconian.

VA could be the first state to really get into it - that is, what happens exactly when you outlaw AKs and ARs and all rifles that can take box magazines after 15 years of robust and perfectly legal sales of these types of weapons.

So the OP is probably well and truly warned by now, that he should leave any stuff he has that could be outlawed in VA behind in Texas. For those of us who live here, there is the hope of some grandfathering of excluded types (which would be wise on the part of the ascendant party, to prevent making several million residents into instant felons for something that was legal the day before).

And then there are liable to be some court cases, too: "That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state, therefore, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" (Constitution of Virginia).

Precedent was set with bump stocks. It's only going to get worse.

If you can wait it out, I high suspect that the Supreme Court will put a stop to all this anti-gun, anti 2A stuff. A judge is Cali has temporarily struck down the 10 round mag limit, and this
will probably become permanent. Once RB Ginsburg goes, the Supreme Court will reliably be interpreting the constitution as it was intended.

VA shooters could convert their AR collection to single shot, or disassemble the firearms, then wait it out.

Man, I hope you guys find a way out of this. There are way too many Fudds that will also stand in your way. As long as it doesn't directly concern them, they think its someone else's fault that this happened. Sad part is they are too stupid to figure out that by the time they muster up the energy because it does involve them, it will be way too late.

Also remember, based upon where you live in VA, you still have to be tried and convicted. In many places outside of the metro areas, I think that isn't going to happen. A jury isn't going to find you guilty in many areas across the state, and most likely if you aren't possessing things while sitting on a pallet of cocaine, local LE isn't going to mess with you. Cops don't vote blue by and large and are as sick of this as you are.

The left is in full resistance. Time for us to be too.
