The Virginia senate voted, yesterday 17 FEB 20, to reject HB961. This is the bill that I believe created the large gun show crowd as it would have banned high capacity firearms and magazines in VA.
Guess a couple of judiciary members (4) listened to their constituents.
And the Gov Northam continues to lay low (scandalous yearbook photo avoidance).

Virginia's Democratic governor seemed poised to make broad changes to his state's gun control laws, but was dealt a stinging blow by his own party Monday when a state Senate committee blocked a bill that would have, among other things, banned sales of assault weapons.

Four Democrats on Virginia's Senate Judiciary Committee broke ranks with their party handing the Republican minority a victory in tabling the bill for the remainder of the year. It also sent the measure to the state's Crime Commission for further review.
Freaky!!
