Virginia Budget Bill HB30 " $250K Allotted For Violators of Gun Confiscation

•, By Douglas J. Hagmann

This amount shall be paid into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund, established pursuant to § 30-19.1:4, Code of Virginia."

Allow the removal of firearms from persons who pose a substantial risk to themselves or others — $50,000

Prohibit the sale, possession, and transport of assault firearms, trigger activators, and silencers –$50,000

Increase the penalty for allowing a child to access unsecured firearms –$50,000

Prohibit possession of firearms for persons subject to final orders of protection –$50,000

Require background checks for all firearm sales –$50,000

Of note is that § 30-19.1:4 addresses the budget "Increase in terms of imprisonment or commitment; fiscal impact statements; appropriations for operating costs."

The submission of a budget increase specifically designated for costs associated with the incarceration of any person who violates the proposed anti-Second Amendment gun laws being pushed by Governor Northam is indeed troubling.
