Jess Foster (VA-HD88), Foster, Cole clash over ERA amendment, other issues in House debate

Foster is an attorney with a Manassas law firm she co-owns, specializing in representing juveniles and domestic abuse survivors.

She said that Virginia has some of the laxest gun control laws in the country and that she favors universal background checks and protective orders that would allow law enforcement to take guns away from those deemed an extreme risk.

These are commonsense steps that are supported by responsible gun owners, such as her father and husband, Foster said.
