The state of Virginia is on the leading edge of America’s battle for gun rights, with a number of battles occurring within the state’s legislation.

While there is plenty of arguing left to occur on the state house floor, especially with a newly minted governor working to establish dominance in a hotly contested arena, Virginians can at least agree that unintended gun violence is still a problem, regardless of the legal and constitutional issues that surround it.

“The House voted 89-8 with one abstention in favor of a bill to authorize the new plate and earmark proceeds from its sales to mental health and other services.

“Del. Marcus Simon, D-Fairfax, sponsored House Bill 287. He said it would draw attention to problems caused by firearms.

“’We have a culture in this country where we’ve started seeing gun violence on a daily basis,’ Simon said. ‘It can get people thinking of what they can be doing to improve the gun violence epidemic that we have, unfortunately.'”

While the message coming from the left side of Virginia’s house is a little pretentiously partisan, if some of the proceeds from this plate can benefit common sense education for these liberal lunatics.
