The plan to ban the sale and possession of certain types of firearms proposed by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (d) could affect millions of gun owners, a industry group said on Friday.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the said weapons manufacturer and dealer, the vague description of the legislation published by Northam on Jan. 4 would be for most of the firearms that are currently on sale in the community.

“The legislative proposals being discussed, would choose most of the firearms out of the reach of the law-abiding Virginians, the shot hunting weapons of their choice to protect themselves, and to practice recreational target shooting,” said Lawrence G. Keane, the group general counsel. “That could potentially impact on the availability of tens of millions of firearms.”
