In November, things didn’t look good for Virginians. Governor Ralph Northam successfully used gun control as an issue to deflect attention away from his blackface scandal and his party took control of both chambers of the legislature. The fact that a number of Democrats ran on gun control anyway only made it more obvious that gun control was coming to the Old Dominion State.
However, something interesting has been happening.
Northam and his allies aren’t getting the gun control traction they and everyone else thought they’d get. The most recent measure fell just yesterday, but it wasn’t the first.
