NRA: ‘First weeks critical’ in fight to save gun rights in Virginia; is a showdown looming with Democrats?

Aggrieved parties try to solve problems politically until left with no other choice

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) If ever if felt like there was a showdown coming over a civil and constitutional right, it feels that way today…in Virginia.

Incoming majority Democrats have been floating one new gun control bill after another — a “red flag” law that destroys the Fifth Amendment’s “due process” clause; bans on entire classes of semi-automatic rifles; magazine bans; even a gun confiscation measure.

Democrats have claimed that they have been given a “mandate” from voters in the state because they happened to have captured a majority of seats in the Assembly and Senate, as well as owning the governor’s mansion.

But if that were true, then how come more than 110 cities and (a majority of) counties around the state have declared themselves to be “Second Amendment sanctuaries,” pledging not to help state authorities enforce any new gun control laws like “sanctuary cities” in the state refuse to help federal officials enforce immigration laws?

The state attorney general, Mark Herring, also a Democrat, has declared the gun sanctuaries to be illegal and unenforceable (he has made no such similar declaration regarding sanctuaries shielding illegal aliens from deportation).

Gun rights groups and citizen militias have dug in their heels, claiming such nonsense hypocritical and beyond Herring’s authority.

It just feels like this issue is going to come down to who blinks first or, if no one does, someone will miscalculate. And our money is on state Democrats who are arrogantly dismissing two-thirds of their state with new gun law proposals.

The NRA agrees. In a post to the NRA-ILA website, the group said the first few weeks of January are going to be “critical” for gun rights:

Law-abiding gun owners throughout the Commonwealth must continue to join together to fight against gun bans, gun rationing, and confiscation this January in Richmond. Your NRA has events planned for the early, critical days of the 2020 legislative session.

The first hearing of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee is January 13th, where lawmakers could hear the first slate of bills to restrict our freedom into oblivion. It’s critical that law-abiding gun owners are heard on this day, because waiting even one week to make our voices heard, whether individually or at an organized event, will simply be too late. 

Anti-gun zealot Gov. Northam wants the entire package of gun control bills fast-tracked for passage in the first week of the short session.  We must defend freedom at the very first hearing on the 13th and show the new bought and paid for anti-gun majority that our rights are not for sale – to Bloomberg or anyone else. 

It should be noted that throughout the modern history of nation-states, kinetic conflict — warfare — only breaks out after all political processes to resolve issues and disagreements have been exhausted.



The side the feels aggrieved will eventually resort to force to protect its rights when they feel there is no remaining option.

Are we reaching that point in Virginia over the Second Amendment? That will largely depend on Democrats.

IT IS CRITICAL FOR ALL THE CITIES AND COUNTIES IN VIRGINIA THAT BECAME GUN-SANCTUARY LOCATIONS TO HAVE THEIR “VOTED INTO OFFICE BY THE PUBLIC” SHERIFFS AND MARSHALS TO BE ON BOARD AND BLOCK “ANYTHING” THAT GOV. BUTTHEAD PASSED INTO NEW LAWS. NOBODY, AND I MEAN “NOBODY” HAS ANY AUTHORITY OVER THE SHERIFF, FOR HE IS THE HIGHEST ELECTED ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL IN THE LAND. ALL OTHER ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS (INCLUDING FEDERAL OFFICERS) WERE **NOT** VOTED INTO OFFICE BY THE PEOPLE. SO IF THE SHERIFF SAYS THESE NEW LAWS DO NOT APPLY TO HIS COUNTY OR CITY… THEN THAT IS THE WAY IT’S… Read more »

You can’t have a communist takeover when Patriots are ventilating your ass.

I bet militias in other neighboring states join the turkey shoot. When Patriots win the war on marxist-satanist dirtfaggots, the next target will be deep state.

MAGA/KAG ANNIHILATE MARXISTS!

Two words ….
Recall petition
For northam and for every one who supports these proposals.
Lege@lators fear the ballot more than they fear bullets. Mainly because they will not be in combat, but will stand for reelection/recall

The NRA has become a worthless gum-flapping-money-begging organization. The people in Virginia need more than lip service from the NRA. America needs a legal challenge to the Supreme Court that makes all the rest of the BS gun laws in Virginia and across America moot.

I truly believe that the governor wants gun owners to show up in Richmond with guns, otherwise why keep rubbing in what they want to do? They most likely plan to start something. I believe we are being set up!!!! NO ONE should carry, outsmart them. Use your words. Example:”you are trying to establish a Totalitarian regime in the state of Virginia which is both illegal & unconstitutional which makes your actions treasonous”. I am aware that after HRC got into office, they planned to use UN troops. The UN is recruiting plus they are embedded around the country. The… Read more »

It’s difficult to support the NRA since they absolutely refuse to fight for he 2A in NYS. I realize that he Big Apple is beyond hope, but REST of NYS loved the 2A, and our AR’s…but the NRA slept through Cuomo’s constantly escalating infringements all the while sending me mailer after mailer stuffed with gimmick after gimmick asking me for more and more money!

[…] Think about that, though: An American lawmaker actually proposing to empower the federal government to steal private purchasing data in order to track gun sales. Wexton whacked three amendments at once, the Second, the Fourth (privacy), and the Fifth (due process). Buying a gun is not against the law; furthermore, it’s no business of anyone in government how many legal guns a citizen purchases.
