Del. BaCote gun ban in NN libraries fails again

“For the eighth year in a row a measure sponsored by Del. Mamye BaCote, R-Newport News, to ban guns in Newport News public libraries failed Thursday. A House of Delegates subcommittee used a procedural maneuver to stop an initiative given to Bacote by the Newport News City Council designed to make the city’s libraries a gun free zone.┬áBecause Virginia is a “Dillon’s Rule” state local ordinances must be approved by the General Assembly and signed into law by the governor in order to take effect.”
