    It will most likely be shot down within minutes of hitting the house.

    The representative who sponsored this bill is Joseph D. Morrissey, a democrat.

    For reference:

    Title 54.1 - PROFESSIONS AND OCCUPATIONS.

    § 54.1-4200. Definitions.

    TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 44 > § 921

    TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 44 > § 923


    Obviously, Delegate Morrissey didn't even bother to read (and understand) these laws before filing this aberration called HB 520.

    If you sell more than 3 guns at a gunshow; Representivite Morrissey will threaten your life and physically attack you like a fat kid going for a cupcake.

    Seriously; did this tool not get the memo that his party LOST just about every meaningful seat in. . .oh wait, he's Henrico county; yeah. . .memos get "lost" down that way.

    Lol, what is the penalty if this bill were to even pass? Civil? Criminal? God damn half ass bill. A suitible punishment should be, "If you sell more than 3 guns at a gunshow; Representivite Morrissey will threaten your life and physically attack you like a fat kid going for a cupcake."

    No penalty has to be specified in the section because there is already a penalty for violations of any provisions of the chapter:

    § 54.1-4202. Penalties for violation of the provisions of this chapter.

    The first offense is a class 2 misdemeanor, subsequent offenses are a class 1 misdemeanor.

    I should have known that. Thank you for the clarification though.

    Would that be a chocolate cupcake or a vanilla cupcake? Because the chocolate ones usually go first, ya know. And then there's the whole issue of sprinkles.
