As Congress struggles to make any headway on gun control, Virginia is set to implement a new set of gun regulation.
In 2014, 66 people in the state were killed by a spouse or partner, using a firearm. One new measure seeks to lower that number.
The new law, touted as an important step for bipartisan gun control, prohibits individuals who have permanent protective orders from possessing a firearm.
Brian Moran, Virginia’s Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, explains.
