Virginia sportsmen have long enjoyed Virginia’s great outdoors, and have done so very responsibly. Virginia is a great place for sportsmen, regardless of whether they prefer to hunt, fish, hike, canoe or just enjoy being outdoors. Israel will always support the right of Virginia sportsmen to enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Virginia.
Israel firmly believes those who use guns for violence such as gang crimes and mass shootings should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The Second Amendment is not a shield for gang members or those who commit violent crimes.
