Republicans Defeat Democratic Push for Stricter Gun Laws

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A Virginia state Senate panel has defeated a Democratic push for stricter gun laws.

Terry McAuliffe enacted similar rules on a temporary basis last November. The panel also voted down a bill to expand mandatory background checks on gun buyers. The vote comes two days after newly sworn-in Gov. Ralph Northam, a...
