USMC officer and cop warn Virginia gun grabbers: ‘Your mindset is what caused Civil War 150 years ago’

Have some Americans gotten their fill of Left-wing authoritarianism?

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) We have been reporting on the increasingly volatile situation in Virginia regarding numerous gun control proposals incoming Democrats have been floating since they won control of all lawmaking institutions in November.

While it’s not clear yet what specific proposals are going to be offered, one thing is certain: Virginia Democrats are making it clear that any effort to oppose any new laws won’t be tolerated.

Specifically, “Second Amendment sanctuaries” — now covering nearly 80 percent of the state — won’t be honored, and anyone who attempts to defy their Left-wing masters in Richmond will face legal consequences.

Last month, a reserve Marine Corps officer and cop addressed Democrat arrogance on the issue of guns and even claimed that it could lead to a second civil war because their “mindset” is exactly the same as it was in the 1860s.

Law Enforcement Today:

At a Dec. 3 meeting of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, U.S. Marine Corps Reservist Maj. Ben Joseph Woods addressed the board and admonished Commonwealth of Virginia lawmakers for their plans to pass sweeping gun laws after they gain the majority next week … 

As Maj. Woods addressed the meeting, he spoke of his time in the military and federal law enforcement and what he feared politicians were doing to the state:

“I’m not going to address the bills themselves. What I would like to address is the fact that at this point, so many people believe that these are unconstitutional or draconian that as of last night, 30 counties in this state which have voted themselves…to be Second Amendment sanctuary counties.

The ugly truth of our situation is that is just scratching the surface of what is happening…I work plainclothes law enforcement…I walk around without a uniform, people don’t see my badge, people don’t see my gun, and I can tell you: People are angry.

And I am frightened to the point that I am looking at moving my wife and child…out of this state if these bills pass. The reason is because my fellow law enforcement officers…Tell me that they would not enforce these bills regardless of whether they believe in them ideologically because they believe that there are so many people angry in gun shops, gun shows, at bars, we have heard it now, people talking about tar and feathering politicians in a less than joking manner…

That is a terrifying prospect and I have never seen people willing to speak about something like that publicly…As a law enforcement officer, I empathize with concerns people have over gun violence.”

When asked to sum up, Maj. Woods concluded with this warning:

“The legal precedent we would set by allowing the legislature to selectively ignore enumerated rights at will is the same mindset that 150 years ago let this country into a civil war.”

It’s not clear if he believes that Democrats in the South were responsible for the Civil War via secession over the institution of slavery or if he’s implying something else. But to hear a veteran military officer and cop say something like this is chilling.

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?



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.

Woods appears to agree.

Unless the state can enlist help from somewhere, they do not stand a chance against that many gun owners. Hopefully the feds will stay out of the way. If the state disregards the US Constitution, the citizens should disregard the state.

Why hasn’t there been a RECALL Petition to toss Northam and the idiots suggesting this unconstitutional, nonsensical, legislation out on their collective AZZES? Wait for these freaks to submit 1 foolish bill proposal, then have the author and supporters arrested for Usurping The US Constitution.

Praying that both sides avoid any rash actions. Give the courts time to reverse these unconstitutional proposals.

Virginia libtards are blowing out their ass. When we have a Democrat president, House and Senate then it will be time to get nervous. That’s when the SHTF. In the meantime we will hopefully have four more years with President Trump. After Trump be prepared fellow patriots.

Little State “Codes” DO NOT, CAN NOT and NEVER WILL Supersede the only “LAW” of the Land, which reigns SUPREME- the US Constitution. Of the People, By the People, For the People. The PEOPLE Govern America BY the Constitution. The Elected SERVANTS of the People are GOVERNED by the LAW of the Constitution. Any bastard that tries to Register or Confiscate the ARMS of the People, commits an ACT OF WAR and TREASON against the People and their BLOOD BOUGHT Constitution. EXECUTION stands as the true REMEDY for such CRIMINALS. The NRA has SOLD us out ENOUGH. They will not… Read more »

Of course the Mockingbird MSM is going to push the angle that the Marines and police will enforce gun confiscation. It’s a psychological scare tactic. Truth is most cops, sheriffs, national guard, militias, gun owner citizens, non-gun owner citizens, vets, active military, just about everybody will fight the quissling, beholden commies in our govt accountable if they ever turn on the American people in a projected ratio of 6:1 if a civil war breaks out in the states. Keep a bug out bag with guns and ammo OUTSIDE your home/s vehicle/s. God bless.

It doesn’t matter if the vast majority of citizens vote to outlaw guns. American gun owners have a natural and constitutional right that cannot be abridged simply because the mob says so. If this type of thinking is the new norm and we abide by it, than we have lost our republic.

I’ve already built safeguards against enemies like Northam and marxists. Elevated and ar500 armored shooting positions, walls, barbed wire, caltrops, bear traps, and razor wire.

When war comes to my doorstep dressed up like a marxist, its gonna be a mad minute forever. The vultures and yotes can scatter the carcasses to the four winds. Patriots Unite!

This is really, a Natural Rights issue. We the People, have a Natural Right to self defense. In the Federalist and Antifederalist papers, Madison and Jefferson have both described that we as a people, on this planet, and in this country have a Natural right, endowed by our Creator (whomever you believe in, because this country bars no religion (as long as it does not conflict with a Republocan Form of Government) christian, pagan, even muslim) to defend yourselves against any enemy, foreign or domestic. The Constitution and Bill of Rights is a Government Negative document, meaning it puts restrictions… Read more »

The Civil War was not caused by secession. It was caused by Lincoln’s invasion of the South to stop secession, in defiance of the Constitution’s Tenth Amendment, and in the absence of any constitutionally enumerated power in the matter of secession.

Democrats will not stop this rush to enact bad law in Virginia because so many of them are convinced that this is “their time” now that they finally have a majority in the legislature. I lived in Virginia for 29 years and can affirmatively state that very few of the old time Democrats (Saslaw excluded) would have continued the headlong rush to a gun ban given the Sanctuary movement. Gun laws simply don’t work, but the Democrats of today won’t listen.

All well and good. Not to disparage honorable and patriotic citizens, however, nobody has addressed the elephants in the room: 1) It is against federal law to deprive people of their rights under the color of law, regardless of who the violators are (legislative, executive or judicial) or where they are in the United States. (read all chapter 13 of 18 U.S.C. but specifically 18 U.S.C. sec. 242 Deprivation of Rights under the Color of Law). Anyone violating the law(s) are de-facto criminals and as such, have no executive, legislative or judicial powers – none. 2) Law Enforcement cannot violate… Read more »
