a week into the Virginia's General Assembly
session, two Virginia
lawmakers are introducing gun control laws, which they believe are sensible.
Adam Ebbin and Delegate Patrick Hope collaborated on the gun legislation
package. If passed, the legislation will:
-Prevent firearms from landing in the hands of anyone with a
-Allow only members of the General Assembly and police to
carry weapons inside the Capitol building
-Require universal background checks for any firearm
purchased, either online or at gun shows.
-Make gun owners responsible to report a missing or stolen
gun to police within 24 hours.
Delegate Hope believes the universal background checks proposal
will be the hardest to pass; Senator Ebbin feels the proposal of only General
Assembly members and police being allowed to carry a guns inside the building
will be the toughest.
Both men told 8News they're taking a stand, and are willing
to take on gun lobbyists.\
