As Virginians celebrated the Christian holidays leading up to Easter and the Jewish Passover, Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) signed a sweeping array of lefty legislation — 45 bills in total, with proposed amendments for even more. From abortion to voting, from climate to LGBT issues, from guns to collective bargaining, the minimum wage, and Confederate monuments, the governor seemingly attempted to smuggle Democrats’ radical new laws past Virginians as they celebrated the holidays and hunkered down to fight the virus.

Northam’s office issued no fewer than eight press releases announcing the governor had signed legislation that the Democrat-majority House of Delegates and Senate had signed over the past year.

On Good Friday, Northam announced he had signed five gun control bills. “We lose too many Virginians to gun violence, and it is past time we took bold, meaningful action to make our communities safer,” he said. The governor signed a law requiring background checks on all firearm sales in Virginia, a red flag law enabling cops to seize firearms from people judged a danger to themselves or others, a limit preventing people from buying more than one handgun per month, a law requiring gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms to law enforcement, and a law imposing a penalty on gun owners leaving firearms in the reach of children.

Northam also proposed amendments to more gun control bills.

Democrats’ assault on the Second Amendment has energized gun owners across Virginia. In January, thousands of protesters flocked to the state capitol. As PJ Media’s Jeff Reynolds reported, the gun control backlash could trigger a wave election for Republicans in November.

But Northam was just getting started with gun control.
