On the MVT Forum yesterday:
“Here we go. Virginia will be looking like NY, NJ, CT if not this year, then next. The commies have taken over the government.”
In the link is reference to:
“He said the package includes measures to require universal background checks; establish an Extreme Risk Protective Order; reinstate Virginia’s One Handgun a Month law; prohibit individuals subject to final protective orders from possessing firearms; ban assault firearms; prevent children from accessing firearms; and require individuals to report lost or stolen firearms to law enforcement. “
“The Extreme Risk Protective Order creates a legal mechanism to temporarily separate a person from their firearms and prevent them from accessing firearms when the court finds that they pose a substantial danger to themselves or others.”
“Other lawmakers will patron legislation to ban the sale, purchase, possession, and transport of assault firearms in the Commonwealth.”
“The bill also modifies the definition of assault firearm to any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.”
I have just joined the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL). They have a very good reputation for stopping these anti-2A bills in Virginia.
This is an absolute attack on Liberty and the Second Amendment. It must be fought. It almost seems inevitable that as the tyrants seize more and more power, more and more anti-Liberty laws are passed, in what seems like an inevitable manner. Just look at recent events in New Jersey. This cannot be allowed to happen, it is the very definition of anti-American tyranny. If tyranny is simply allowed to legislate away Liberty, what is the very point of the 2A? This is unconstitutional at a fundamental level, and is thus treason.
We often look at these other north-western States that were formerly part of the United States, as well as California, and laugh about it, as they have been fully subjugated. Well, this is a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy, and when you have a situation where a larger portion of the population has become unsuited to vote in a rational and Liberty-oriented manner, then you have a problem. When that same deluded mob attempts to vote away the very Republic that has enshrined individual Liberty, at the same time as supporting excessive taxation, as they expect welfare and income distribution from those who work to those who do not.
Well, now it is here in Virginia. All of you who spend your time posting FaceBook memes on ‘Molon Labe’ etc, well now your bluff has been called. The rubber just hit the road.
If these measure pass this year or the next, what exactly is that going to look like here in fair old Virginny? Hand it over? Then what about your 2A then? It has been suggested to me that I run a firearms and magazine storage service at the VTC in West Virginia! It has been suggested that we move from this State! So gun owners and Liberty-loving true Americans will get chased from State to State, leaving behind tyranny in charge. And what happens when the same laws are passed in West Virginia and elsewhere?
There is a lobby day on the 21 January in Richmond, run by the VCDL. HERE is a link to information on the 2017 event.
Think hard on this: what if the VCDL is unable to stop these measure being passed into law? What does it look like then? What happens to your rifles, magazines and tactical training then?
I suggest that if you live in VA, you join the VCDL and consider showing up to the lobby day.
