In Episode 57 of District of Conservation, Gabriella dissects the gun control bills that will be heard in Virginia’s General Assembly come January and why they won’t stop crimes but rather criminalize law-abiding gun owners in the state. She also offers three ways to be proactive and fight back these bad bills.
