Bill of Attainder?

Virginia has legislation that would shut down any non-government-owned shooting range with at least 50 employees.

Most gun ranges are operated by much smaller businesses, well under that 50 employee limit. So what's the deal here? Aside from making it hard to run large scale gun ranges (which mostly do not exist anyway), why try to pass a law like this if it would have no effect?

I do have an idea why. The NRA HQ range is located in Virginia and the NRA organization undoubtedly has more than 50 employees. This is likely just a petty way to score some points by making the NRA shut down or spin off their HQ range.
