Virginia’s GOP Governor Glenn Youngkin Vetoes Over Two Dozen Gun Control Bills Passed by Democrats in One Week

Virginia’s Republican Governor, Glenn Youngkin, has vetoed over two dozen gun control bills sent to him this week by the Democratic-controlled state legislature.

No matter the severity of the crime or the urgency felt by Americans to protect themselves and their families, Democrats persist in advocating for gun control measures.

This highlights the critical importance of elections. If Glenn Youngkin had been defeated by Democrat Terry McAuliffe, these gun control bills would likely be in effect today.

Youngkin Utterly Destroys Gun Control Push by VA Dems

From a ban on some semi-automatic weapons to gun purchase waiting periods, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin vetoed more than two dozen gun bills sent to his desk this week by the Democrat-controlled General Assembly.

On Tuesday, the Republican governor said he signed 31 bills into law, vetoed 30, and offered amendments to six.

“I swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America and the Constitution of Virginia, and that absolutely includes protecting the right of law-abiding Virginians to keep and bear arms,” he said in a statement.

“I am pleased to sign four public safety bills which are commonsense reforms with significant bipartisan support from the General Assembly, and offer recommendations to several bills which, if adopted, will make it harder for criminals to use guns in the commission of a violent act.”

Youngkin’s office released a 23-page document with his veto statements, including on some high-profile pieces of legislation, such as the ban on what Democrats refer to as “assault weapons.”
