Peninsula-area students participate in National School Walkout

Farther south, Heritage High School’s student activity and group leaders invited Del. Marcia “Cia” Price, D-Newport News, to take part in their events.
They read aloud the 17 names of the victims, held a moment of silence and three spoken word student performers talked about how the Parkland shooting made them feel.
“They were just really talking about how it effects them personally,” Price said. “With Heritage, (the) 23607 (ZIP code), gun violence means something different than a lot of students across the country. It was about the everyday gun violence that they see. I really think that their ability to add that to the national conversation was really powerful. It was student-led, student implemented, and then they were back in their seats.”

How to counter mass shootings: mental-health care or gun control?

Whether the preventions that lawmakers do propose are too invasive or too simplistic becomes yet another part of the debate.
Opinions are as varied as the number of people you ask.
Democratic Sen. Mark Warner said he’s “committed to figuring out a way to put an end to mass shootings, and that means looking at all options. Frankly, we shouldn’t have to choose.”
Del. Marcia S. “Cia” Price, D-Newport News, said it’s “shortsighted” not to acknowledge that both mental illness and lax gun controls contribute to gun violence or mass shootings. But she warned against conflating the two. “Every time we have gun violence, it’s blamed on mental health,” said Price. “I think that is over-simplified and very shortsighted.” 


Wright chairs a subcommittee of the Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee, where most gun bills go to die.
Among them this year were two measures introduced by Del. Price that would have required a parent’s permission before a minor could keep a gun in the home and allowed localities to regulate gun possession inside government buildings.
Other failed bills would have required licensed day cares to keep guns locked up when children were around, banned carrying firearms or ammunition at major public events and forbade organized groups from marching and brandishing weapons in a threatening manner.
In all, about 70 gun-related bills never made it out of committees this session, said Price.
“We can do our jobs by presenting them,” Price said. “But if a subcommittee of six to seven people can prevent us from having a larger conversation with the full floor, then that’s not productive. That does not help us move the ball.”

The Democratic “Muscular Minority Brings Change to Virginia

Student Loan Reform
House Democrats are fighting to ensure that all Virginians have access to affordable, high-quality education.
Delegate Cia Price passed legislation to help borrowers navigate student loansby establishing a student loan ombudsman. In addition to helping Virginians understand their financial commitments, the ombudsman will also help resolve complaints from borrowers against companies that engage in predatory practices.
Delegate Schuyler VanValkenburg passed a bill to protect people who struggle to make their student loan payments from losing their professional licenses. The New York Times recently published a story on states that suspend the professional licenses of people with unpaid loans and the policy’s devastating effects on working people.
