But since there are now more than a half million more of these weapons in Virginia than there were before the Democrats’ highly-touted gun control bills passed, one can only conclude that the effort was a total flop.
They rushed to follow Everytown's agenda and didn't think it through. Governor's election next year which should be very interesting and legislative elections.

The same agenda is a side issue in this election as well. Considering the dynamics it will be interesting to see what happens after this election and how it will influence following elections in 21 and 22.

Protest against the patchwork.

Today "boogaloo boy" Mike Dunn led militia activists on an armed march in laps around the Capitol in Richmond, Virginia, where it's illegal to carry guns at protests, and it's illegal to carry 20+ round mags.

Police stood back and did not intervene as the group defied both laws.
I wonder if BLM757 will do something like this.

Norfolk.
Gun rights advocates want Norfolk to keep allowing firearms in city buildings. If the council says no, it could be up to voters.
NORFOLK — After months of stumbling, gun rights advocates in Norfolk have finally amassed enough signatures to force the City Council to hold hearings on their request for the city to keep allowing guns in city-owned buildings.

Called the Norfolk Second Amendment Preservation Coalition, the group gathered more than 2,600 petition signatures on Election Day, forcing the city’s hand and mandating a public discussion.

Given the political makeup of the council and what members have said about gun laws, the push is nearly certain to fail. Assuming that happens, advocates will try to gather more signatures to put the issue before voters through a ballot referendum, though it’s not clear when that would happen.

Richmond.
Richmond police enforcement of new city gun ban in question
Following two demonstrations in downtown Richmond in recent weeks, both including people armed with guns, the police department’s response has been mum over one demonstration where the ordinance was apparently violated.
Richmond city Councilmember Stephanie Lynch is questioning the decision.

“It’s the law and it needs to be enforced,” said Lynch, who is vying for action. “My hope is that RPD is doing the due diligence and investigating who came into our city and broke this ordinance.”
