Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Friday, February 23. Also, see below for video of the Fairfax County School Board last night discussing – and voting to adopt (at 1:26 of the video) – Board member Ryan McElveen’s resolution on combating gun violence. Among other things, the resolution “calls upon the United States Congress and state legislatures, including the Virginia General Assembly, to prioritize the protection of students and school system employees by passing legislation that more effectively regulates access to firearms in the interest of public safety, funds public-health research on firearms related issues, and advances mental health supports.””
