VA Senate approves ‘red flag’ gun law. Northam’s agenda moves forward after gun rights rally.

Virginia’s state senate has passed a bill that would allow law enforcement officers to confiscate guns from or prevent the purchase of firearms by people deemed to be threats to themselves or others, just days after a massive gun rights rally swarmed the state capitol.

The bill passed the chamber in a narrow 21-19 vote and will next move to the state Housem of Delegates.

Jake Rubenstein, a spokesman for Virginia House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn, told CNN the House would “deliver” on a demand from voters for gun control measures.

“Virginians spoke loud and clear on Election Day demanding common sense gun violence protections, and make no mistake, we will deliver on that mandate,” Jake Rubenstein said.
