After hyping up Democrats Tuesday night and celebrating the "blue wave" that swept Virginia in the elections, Gov. Ralph Northam (D) is already preparing to put together legislation that will take guns away from law-abiding citizens.

According to The Washington Post, Northam is returning to the idea of his famed "common sense" gun laws that were voted down by Republicans at his special session in July. Some of the measures included universal background checks, banning "assault weapons" and high-capacity magazines, a ban on suppressors and bump stocks and implementing red flag laws that would allow courts to take guns away from someone who is deemed to be a risk to themselves or others.
