Supervisors in the Washington, D.C. exurb of Loudoun County, Virginia voted overwhelmingly this week to investigate how to implement and enforce more than a half-dozen gun control bills signed into law by Gov. Ralph Northam earlier this year. The laws take effect on July 1st, and supervisors on the Democrat-dominated board signaled that they want to be ready to enforce the new laws once they’re officially on the books.
Moms Demand Action, which calls itself a “grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence,” has been active locally in seeking more gun control measures.
Ami Miller, a spokeswoman for Loudoun Moms Demand Action, said she’s pleased with [Supervisor Juli] Briskman’s efforts. “We’re glad to see the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors take the crisis of gun violence seriously,” Miller said. “After seeing the governor sign several gun safety policies, it’s encouraging to see our local officials keep up the momentum and implement these new laws to keep our community safe.” Back in December, the Loudoun County board rejected a Second Amendment Sanctuary resolution, though at least one town in the county passed a weaker resolution calling on state lawmakers to reject gun control legislation back in February. Lovettsville city council members overwhelmingly approved the resolution with dozens of supporters in attendance, though many of them were hoping to see a stronger statement by the city council.
