Virginia Legislators Try To Banish Gun Store

posted on January 26, 2016

Nova Firearms, in the northern Virginia suburb of McLean, is again under attack—this time from legislators who want to create so-called “gun-store free zones.” House Bill 422 and Senate Bill 138 would give localities the option of “prohibiting anyone from engaging in the business of selling firearms at retail within 1,000 feet of a school.” 

The bills are just two of more than 100 firearm-related proposals before the Virginia General Assembly during its 60-day session. To drum up support for the schemes, the bills’ sponsors attended a rally outside Nova Firearms on Jan. 16, and scores of politicians reportedly attended a demonstration upon the store’s September grand opening. Moreover, hundreds of gun-control activists descended upon Richmond for Lobby Day on Jan. 18.
