Virginia state legislature passes background checks for all firearm purchases

The Virginia state legislature voted Saturday to mandate criminal background checks on all gun purchases in the chamber’s latest effort to tackle gun control.

The measure passed both the Senate and the General Assembly and is poised to be reviewed by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) for signature. The legislature also passed a measure Saturday limiting anyone who does not have a concealed carry permit to one handgun purchase a month.

The state House passed the background check legislation by a 51-45 vote Thursday. The bill passed the state Senate by a 23-16 vote Saturday. FULL ARTICLE
