Lawmakers Push for Gun Control

Posted: Updated:

Virginia Democrats announced a series of new gun control measures Wednesday morning in Richmond.

They include a bill to expand background checks to include all gun sales, and others designed to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers for five years after a conviction.

The proposals are now before House and Senate committees for consideration.
