Virginia Senate Majority Leader Withdrawls Anti-Gun Bill 24 Hours After Introducing It

Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment announced Tuesday that he will withdraw the gun bill he proposed only 24 hours before.

Norment filed a bill Monday that would extend a state prohibition on guns in courthouses to any "building owned or used by a locality for governmental purposes." The proposal would also increase the penalty for breaking the law from a misdemeanor to a felony.

Political experts called Norment's bill surprising and unexpected considering Republicans have historically blocked gun control measures. So much so, the Virginia Senate GOP majority whip offered his resignation calling Norment's proposal "a great betrayal."

Tuesday afternoon, Norment said he will withdraw the gun bill because "as currently drafted, the legislation represents neither my views nor my intention."
