Urge Virginia Legislators to Protect Sensible Gun Laws!

The majority of Virginians support common-sense gun violence prevention policies. But new, life-saving laws are at risk of repeal. We’re urging Virginia state senators to #StandWithVirginia and represent the will of the people!

Over the last two years, Virginia has seen an epidemic of gun violence worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately impacted communities of color. Despite these challenges, the Virginia General Assembly has delivered the will of the people and created a safer Virginia by passing an entire slate of gun violence prevention bills.

Virginia’s best defense to rising gun violence is protecting the state’s comprehensive set of evidence-based policies that are proven to save lives. But right now, these lifesaving laws are at risk of being repealed. They’re under threat by newly elected anti-gun sense legislators, including a new House majority that is self-interestedly catering to the gun lobby over their constituents.

We can’t roll back Virginia’s life-saving progress. We’re uniting to urge state senators to reflect the will of the people and protect Virginia’s hard-won progress in preventing gun violence. The facts speak for themselves:

  • 86% of Virginia voters support requiring background checks on all gun sales

  • 76% of Virginia voters oppose permitless concealed carry

  • 73% percent support extreme risk laws, also known as “red flag” laws

Fighting the dangerous repeal of any of Virginia's sensible gun violence prevention laws is a matter of life and death, period.
