VIRGINIA: SUPPRESSOR BAN NEARING CRITICAL DEADLINE
RICHMOND, VA – Delegate Mark Levine’s House Bill 961 is likely to be heard at the House Public Safety Committee Hearing on Friday, February 7th at 8:00 AM. The hearing, which will take place in House Room 1 of the General Assembly Building, is the last chance for legislation to pass out of the committee prior to the crossover deadline on Tuesday, February 11th.
House Bill 961 seeks to ban the sale of suppressors, standard capacity magazines, and “assault firearms” in Virginia. If enacted as currently drafted, Virginians in lawful possession of suppressors would be required to destroy them, transfer them out of state, or surrender them to state or local law enforcement by January 1st, 2021. Any civilian caught importing, selling, transferring, manufacturing, purchasing, possessing, or transporting a suppressor after that date would be charged with a Class 6 felony.
