Gun law safety advocates disappointed by special session

By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Tuesday's General Assembly special session dealing with gun violence prevention bills came up empty.

Both Republican-led chambers adjourned until Nov. 18, days after the upcoming statewide elections on Nov. 5.

For gun safety groups that want what they call "common sense changes "in the law, some say they were surprised no action was taken on Tuesday and there was no dialogue either.

But Gay Einstein, founder of the Charlottesville Coalition for Gun Violence Prevention, says the election is also in November.

"I was disappointed but actually going into this, we've been at this for a very long time and I felt like well this is going to be one more disappointment and it was," she said. "We will be voting for sensible gun laws candidates we pick."

Einstein says she and her fellow gun law advocates say this is more than just politics because it is an ethical issue.
