The Law, and Governor Northam’s Planned Treason
We are working hard in Culpeper County, Virginia, to fight back lawfully against proposed treason from the Governor’s office. We have a Culpeper County 2A Facebook page which is doing really well. We succeeded, with the help of a sympathetic Board of Supervisors, to pass a ‘Constitutional County Resolution.’
Sheriff Jenkins, the consummate politician, is getting a lot of positive PR across social media. However, the jury remains out on his true commitment to the 2A. He spoke, and confirmed, at both BOS meetings, and explained that he could not make decisions on what laws may be unconstitutional until they were passed. There is nothing complicated about an infringement to VA and US Constitutional 2A rights. He appears to be hedging. He has said that there is no limit to the number of auxiliary Sheriffs deputies that he could create; a background check and 8 hours per month voluntary service is not your natural 2A right. It is indentured servitude in order to be allowed to carry / own a firearm. We have not written him off, but he needs to confirm his position and stop politicking.
Governor Northam proposes Treason and Violence against the peaceful citizens of Virginia:
It is vital that we are clear on this, and the true legal position. This is a Constitutional Republic and we do not have our natural rights taken from us by the mob. Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is No Law. To threaten gun confiscation is treason, and an implicit threat of violence against Virginia Citizens.
“Asked whether he (Governor Northam) supports confiscating assault weapons from gun owners, Northam demurred. ‘That’s something I’m working [on] with our secretary of public safety,” he said. “I’ll work with the gun violence activists, and we’ll work [on] that. I don’t have a definitive plan today.’”
