Kamala Harris Has a Chance to Enact Major Gun Control Legislation and will get those guns
On August 11, Joe Biden officially selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate for the 2020 election.

America is, by explicit design, an exceptional place in which things are done differently. To its detractors, this difference is incalculably annoying: “This is the only country in the world,” Americans who envy others will gripe, “in which….” To its admirers, by contrast, America’s individuality is a source of both hope and pride. The United States remains the shining city upon the hill, the last great hope, the focal point for freedom around the globe.
And yet, America’s cherished idiosyncrasy yields a conspicuous risk: That, after a while, the country will forget why it was founded in the first place and fall carelessly into line with the others.
Champions of the United States like to ask what would happen if it should change beyond all

Virginia Democrats took an important step toward passing several gun control bills they have prioritized during this year's General Assembly session.
The majority-Democrat state Senate passed legislation that would restrict monthly gun purchases, expand background checks on firearms, and allow localities to ban guns in certain designated areas.
Senate Bill 69 amends Virginia law to restrict citizens' ability to purchase more than one handgun per month, Senate Bill 70 requires mandatory background checks for all private sales of guns, and Senate Bill 35 requires localities to ban guns at public events.
