According to the Arizona Citizen's Defense League, it's Bloomberg who is funding the bills and rallying the left.

That has already happened! Who do you think funded all the anti-gun pols that pushed through dealer licensing? Besides donating directly to their political campaigns he also founded and funds anti-gun groups like Moms Demand Action. There's more Bloomberg-sponsored anti-gun bills in the legislature right now.

It's disheartening that so many gun owners have no idea what is happening all around them, we're the frog in the pot slowly being brought to boil.

Unless his $ swings Arizona's or Utah's state Government blue at the November 2020 election, this means...not much..

It would be safe to say that Bloomburg is, or very near to, the number one enemy of gun owners. Yet there are thousands of gun owners that vote for the likes of him. We are our own worse enemy.

you guys are getting bent over bad. however, you guys let the democrats take the state senate, state house of reps, and the gov. mansion so it seems just that this is happening.
It's happening in Alabama too. Did not Sen Jones vote to remove Trump?

This happened over the years and was subtle. As soon as the left had all of the pieces in place, they moved in fast and hard. It's now like a smash and grab type robbery...grabbing every piece they can and ramming it through. They are actually rushing it so organized resistance is hampered. There is no/limited debate and the legislators, in particular the delegates, now ignore the pleas for sanity from their constituents. They actually kicked us out of the public community hearing with threat of arrest for trespassing when they passed the weapons/magazine ban. Bloomberg's money and influence is huge here. He is actually attending a gala with the Governor and the legislators tonight in Richmond.

I fear things will get much worse here. Most of the state does not support what those in power (from the population centers) are doing and the anxiety is high. It gets worse by the minute with other bills being push through to ensure the antis stay in power.

yes, the GOP put up a good ole boy to throw a bone to instead of a really viable candidate. he was easily beat by the DNC candidate supported by the white guilt tribe.

Update...As of 9 Mar, the following are headed to the Governor's desk. Though not yet signed into law, the Governor and his leftist friends in the House of Delegates and Senate have ignored our calls. We have a long fight ahead of us.

from VCDL:
Bills that have passed both the House and Senate and will now head to the Governor's desk to possibly be signed into law
Duplicate bills are combined:

HB 2, SB 70 - Universal Background Checks. Only applies to bonafide sales, where something is given in exchange for a firearm.
HB 9 - lost/stolen firearms must be reported in 48 hours - time to report increased from 24 to 48 hours.
SB 14 - bans possession of bump stocks. Binary triggers, trigger cranks, etc. are not affected.
SB 64 - makes a group of two or more individuals brandishing with the intent and purpose of intimidating others a felony.
SB 71 - daycare/preschool become gun-free zones. For daycare centers and religious or private preschools, the gun ban only applies during hours of operation.
SB 173 - allows CHP holders to have a stun-weapon in their vehicle while on
HB 264, SB 263 - Eliminates online training and does not affect training from NRA instructors to get a CHP.
HB 421, SB 35 - allows localities to create their own gun laws. Restricted as to where localities can control guns: government buildings, parks, recreation and community centers, permitted events and surrounding roads.
HB 600, SB 593 - Licensed home day facilities require firearms to be stored unloaded and locked up during hours of operation. Localities can make their requirements more strict.
HB 674, SB 240 - Red Flag law - additional protections for search warrants and wrongful accusations were added.
HB 812, SB 69 - One Handgun a Month. Has exception for CHP holders.
HB 1004, SB 479 - protective orders take away gun rights while in effect.
HB 1080 - only those authorized by state law can carry on K-12 grounds. Conservators of the Peace cannot carry on school grounds under this bill.
HB 1083 - class 1 misdemeanor for younger than 14-years-old getting access to a loaded firearm in a reckless manner. Only change to current law is raising the penalty from a Class 3 misdemeanor to a Class 1 misdemeanor.
