Virginia Lawmakers Propose Bill HB318

For Commonwealth citizens who’ve been following the antics of the Virginia lawmakers, the newest intel is that not only are they seeking new gun legislation, but are aiming for “ammunition free” zones. In addition to their proposed legislation, and their threats against Second Amendment Sanctuary localities, they’ve also proposed closing down all non-government run gun ranges.
Their newest mind-numbing proposal is their Bill HB318. Introduced by Democratic Delegate Kaye Kory, if it passed, there would soon be ammunition free zones, in addition to gun free zones. If the proposed HB318 Bill becomes law, a violation of it would be considered a Class I Misdemeanor, that would be punishable by a fine of up to $2,500 and up to one year imprisonment.
Currently, the law in the Commonwealth of Virginia prohibits firearms on the “property of any public, private or religious elementary, middle or high school, including buildings and grounds.” These areas are known as “gun free” zones. An “ammunition free” zone would ban ammunition at the same locations.
The important thing to keep in mind is that those same areas would also include while the person is inside their vehicle. This new Bill would definitely impact law abiding citizens who may keep ammunition in their vehicles for trips to the range, hunting, or in the extreme, extra ammo for protection.
