In an unexpected twist of events, the Virginia Senate voted Tuesday to block the pending ban on semiautomatic guns. The measure, if passed, would have ruled against the possession of magazines capable of holding over 12 rounds, while at the same time crippling gun shops that depend on the sale of those weapons.

Gun shop owners aren’t completely out of the woods. The Senate is now asking the VA crime commission to further investigate gun legislation and pending issues. The state does not expect to see any gun control legislation aimed at semi-automatic weapons on the floor again until 2021.
Legislation concerning universal background checks, a limit on monthly handgun purchases, and other local laws did pass.
