Gun Control

This week, lawmakers will be considering an amendment to a bill they sent to Governor Ralph Northam earlier this year that bans guns at state buildings. The governor's amendment creates an exemption for magistrates.

Lawmakers are sending the governor several bills aimed at preventing gun violence. But there's one bill they're not sending him.

Democrats campaigned on a platform of taking action to crack down on gun violence. Now, they're divided on some of the details.

Now that Democrats are in control of the General Assembly, firearms are prohibited in a number of places. And, one of those places might soon be a polling place.
