    Heads up, Prince William County gun owners!
    I have received word from a member that the Prince William County Board of Supervisors (BoS) is planning on announcing or discussing their intent to pass local gun control. That announcement or discussion will probably come at the BoS meeting tomorrow, November 22. If so, there could be a public hearing and vote as early as December 6!
    I don't know if the discussion/announcement will be in the afternoon session, that starts at 2 pm or the evening session that starts at 7:30 pm.
    I am independently trying to verify the discussion/announcement, but have not heard back from my source yet. If any of you have more information, please let me know.
    In the meantime, it would be good if we had some gun owners attend those two meetings and report back. If there is an opportunity to speak against such an ordinance at the meeting, it would be great if people would do so.
    The meetings will also be televised, I believe.
    Keep in mind that Prince William County is a Second Amendment Sanctuary and has been since 2019. In 2020 the new Board of Supervisors considered dropping that status, but in the end backed down due to overwhelming pressure from constituents.
    I will be out of the loop much of tomorrow due to other commitments, so I won't be able to travel to Prince William County to be at the meetings.

    Has this been rescinded?

    § 15.2-915. Control of firearms; applicability to authorities and local governmental agencies.​

    A. No locality shall adopt or enforce any ordinance, resolution, or motion, as permitted by § 15.2-1425, and no agent of such locality shall take any administrative action, governing the purchase, possession, transfer, ownership, carrying, storage, or transporting of firearms, ammunition, or components or combination thereof other than those expressly authorized by statute.
