Northam administration takes gun law initiative on the road

Two members of Governor Northam’s administration are conducting a series of events in parts of the state from today through next Tuesday connected in advance of next month’s special General Assembly session on state gun laws. Northam’s office  says the events will discuss what the governor calls the “gun violence emergency” in Virginia. Almost all the events are in Richmond and northern Virginia. The only one west of Richmond is in Abingdon.

From Governor Northam’s Office:  In the lead up to the July 9 special legislative session called by Governor Ralph Northam, Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran and Secretary of Health and Human Resources Daniel Carey will participate in a series of roundtables across the state with community leaders and advocates to discuss the gun violence emergency in Virginia and commonsense gun safety legislation.

Last week, Governor Northam asked legislators to engage in an open and transparent debate, in which the bills brought before the legislature are put to a vote by the entire General Assembly.
