Virginia General Assembly Approved Red Flag Laws

The Virginia General Assembly approved ‘red flag laws’ which require Virginia State Police to keep a digital system keeping track of people subject to substantial risk orders, disallow guns for people under protective orders, expanded background checks, and require gun owners to report a lost or stolen firearm within 48 hours. Governor Northam also signed a bill that increases the penalty of giving a child less than 14-years-old a firearm, and local government can ban guns in public buildings.
