And so it begins.

Gov. Ralph Northam announced Monday that his ban on "assault weapons" means that AR-15 owners will either have to register their guns with the government or hand them over.

According to the Virginia Mercury, Northam spokesperson Alena Yarmosky said in a statement, "The governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period."
