Virginia Senate passes bill fining visible handguns in vehicle

The Virginia Senate passed a bill that would create a $500 civil penalty for firearm owners who leave handguns on a car seat or any area that is visible to passersby.

The bill still needs to pass the House of Delegates and is expected to be vetoed by Governor Youngkin.

Sponsored by Senator Dave Marsden, D-Fairfax, said the bill is a “light touch” on gun control.

This bill is one of the first gun control measures of the session.

It highlights the differencing view points of gun crimes.
