Virginia Governor Ralph Northam may be vowing to pass gun bans and more when lawmakers return to Richmond for the 2020 session in a few weeks, but in the meantime he’s going to end up selling a lot of guns across the state. On today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co., gun shop owner Scott Ayers from Farmville Sporting Goods joins me to talk about how gun owners are already reacting to the loss of the legislature and the upcoming onslaught of gun control bills. From AR-15’s to suppressors, residents are buying up pretty much everything Northam is hoping to ban.
That’s not good news for the governor when it comes to predicting how many Virginians will comply with his proposed gun and magazine bans. I doubt the men and women visiting Farmville Sporting Goods, for instance, are buying 20-round magazines because they only want to use them for a few months. It looks to me like many Virginians are making a decision not to comply with law that would strip them of their lawfully owned arms.
Also on today’s program we feature the amazing armed citizen in Washington State who stopped a dangerous incident on an interstate highway, a 15-year old already on probation for armed robbery who’s now facing similar charges after an alleged stickup at a New York motel, and an off-duty officer out for a jog who was in the right place at the right time to help a woman and her three-legged canine companion.
