Recently, the state of Virginia held hearings on gun control. Legislative hearings are nothing new, of course. They happen in pretty much every level of government with varying degrees of formality. In theory, it’s supposed to give lawmakers something to think about before they vote on various bills.
Yet in Virginia, they don’t want anything to think about, including how unpopular these measures might actually be. Which is why they’ve done everything to downplay gun control support at the hearings.
You see, during the hearing, Virginia Democrats sought to “balance” the sides a bit.
