Virginia Gun Rights Rally Update

| January 17, 2020

Gun rights? How about human rights, instead?

VA governor Northam bans guns during rally in VA capitol Richmond, based on “threats” by white supremacists to attend the rally.  https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/16/us/virginia-gun-rights-rally/index.html

According to him, there is credible evidence that these troublemakers will attend the rally. There’s  video in the following article with his gun ban announcement.

https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/478336-virginia-governor-to-ban-weapons-around-capitol-before-gun-rights-rally

He’s riding his agenda hot and hard right now, and the FBI is reported to have arrested at least one, and possibly three, of these troublemakers.  One is supposed to be a Canuck. I don’t know how credible these reports are, so I tend to take a ‘wait and see’ stance on it. This has become such a dustup that he created all by his lonesome that it is even making my local news stations.

It would be a priceless bit of irony if the “rally” never materialized.

As with that protest joke from the 1970s: “What if they held a war and nobody came to it?”

If, as ninja indicated a week or so ago, he was a pediatrics neurosurgeon in the past, why is this idjit in politics?  There are two possible answers:

1 – He’s being setup for failure by the Democrats.

2 – He is dumber than a box of rocks and I wouldn’t take a lame guinea pig to him for medical needs.

Okay, a 3rd answer: he never went into practice and it was all baloney, but that is speculation.

You do have to be careful what you wish for, you know. You just might get it.

Is this the end of this specious nonsense? I reckon not.

There is going to be far more to come on this, and we all know it, so keep your eyes and ears tuned, refreshments handy, and your powder dry.

Stay tuned.

    Here is the text of the EO. A “weapon” is defined as “anything we say it is”. And an exemption applies to “anyone we say it does”.

    I see this stuff and I wonder how long will we put up with it. And then I see the protests in Iran…they protest, go to jail, get executed, etc, and nothing changes.

  2. Got this from my friend this morning who moved down to Virginia from Long Beach, NY in August of last year after retiring.

    Virginia: Senate Passes Three Anti-Gun Bills

    On Thursday, January 16th, the Virginia Senate voted to pass three of the anti-gun bills that the Senate Judiciary Committee approved on Monday. The fight is far from over! Dozens of other gun control bills from Michael Bloomberg’s wish-list have still not been taken up by a committee. Second Amendment supporters have demonstrated an unprecedented showing in support for our rights. It is critical that law-abiding citizens not back down and remain ready to oppose this agenda at every turn.

    Senate Bill 35, introduced by Senator Scott Surovell, passed by a vote of 19-21. It would destroy Virginia’s firearm preemption laws by allowing localities to create new “gun-free zones” in and around public buildings, parks, and permitted events such as farmer’s markets. Criminals would ignore these restrictions, leaving law-abiding citizens unable to defend themselves and their loved ones.

    Senate Bill 69, introduced by Senator Mamie Locke, passed by a vote of 19-21. This scheme, commonly referred to as “one-gun-a-month,” would arbitrarily ration an individual’s right to lawfully purchase a handgun to once within 30 days.

    Senate Bill 70, introduced by Senator Louise Lucas, passed by a vote of 17-23. It would ban sales between private individuals without first paying fees and obtaining government permission. Firearm sales between friends, neighbors, or fellow hunters, would not be exempted. This proposal would have no impact on crime and is completely unenforceable.

    Please stay tuned to http://www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on these bills and the fight in Richmond.

    Restrictions being placed upon the right of citizens to assemble peaceably? Well, OK then.

    Personally, I am disinclined to assemble anywhere that violence is being telegraphed by the host. Should my presence be required at such an event, I would certainly expect the host to provide me with suitable instruments of self protection. Doesn’t matter where the assembly is or who the host might be, but in this case the governor is hosting an assembly at the capitol as he seems to be inviting violence among those attending.

    Sure sounds like the gov is doing all he can to cause serious problems for his constituents. Bad stuff, and so unnecessary.

    • Cameron Kingsley says:

      Not only unnecessary, it’s also unwise. That’s a good way of really getting people ticked at you, especially when they already don’t have a high opinion of you. That’s just asking for trouble. He really should quit while he’s behind. Of course, we know he’s too arrogant and foolish for that. He won’t give up until it’s too late. It will be interesting to see if him and his fellow slugs do end up quitting when the freight train they created is right on top of them with no way to stop it or if they will go for broke and lose more than if they had just stopped.

  4. Cameron Kingsley says:

    While I believe the US is going through a reawakening, I sure hope it’s not too late. I really hope I wasn’t unlucky enough to be born only to live and see the end of it.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      It’s never too late.

      Sometimes, CK, you have to rattle the doorknobs to get the sleepy souls to wake up and realize that they are about to lose the privilege of sleeping peacefully in their own little beds.

  5. OldManchu says:

    Northam should give himself a late late later term abortion.

  6. Mason says:

    Governor Ralph “Coon Man” Northam is the man who posed in his yearbook in either black face or Klan robes (he can’t remember which but is willing to dance a jig for you while he explains it) and who supports infanticide of unwanted children.

    This guy is Biden-level always wrong.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      The guy in the yearbook pictures wearing blackface is also wearing glasses. Northam doesn’t wear glasses.

      Oh, wait – maybe that’s his problem: he’s so short-sighted about American rights that he can’t see past his nose and his own greed for power.

  7. GDContractor says:

    There’s no advantage in taking the fight to them. Whoever planned and organized any kind of armed rally should have their motivations examined. As Mr. Sharkman pointed out several years ago, there are lessons to be learned from the history of the French Resistance. Self identification is not one of them.

        And more obscurely, the folks beaning Redcoats with “snowballs” in Boston.

        Absent the grotesque overreaction of musket fire, there might not have been a Revolution.

        Never underestimate the power of outrage and senseless death to trigger upheaval.

        Rather tough on the examples…. Thus Mr Sherman’s point. But no revolution lacks bloody shirts.

        • GDContractor says:

          In Texas, we prefer the “Come and take it” approach. Although there are a few morons who take their tacticool rifles to Taco Bell.

          Most folks I know just buy primers, stay at home, and reload.

  8. Thunderstixx says:

    Virginia has been a purple state for a long time now so I find myself not having a shitload of sympathy for them as they voted for the so called “moderate” klownes for decades.
    Now the chicken comes home to roost.
    This is about the total destruction of the US and I pray to God Almighty himself to carry us out of this mess without a shooting war.
    It will be assholes like him that get a real Civil War started that nobody wants, especially those of us on this page as we know the consequences.
    Combat Veteran or not, we all understand how horrific a real war is…

    • AW1Ed says:

      It’s purple due to the DC bedroom communities in Northern Virginia, and Richmond which is what one would expect in a Dem controlled city. This is painfully similar to the PDRofMD with the added bonus of welfare recipients displaced by DC’s gentrification programs into PG and Montgomery counties, and the endless river of suck that is Baltimore. If the Electoral College process applied to the several states the political landscape would look much different.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Well, Stixx, if you need a camp cook, let me know. 🙂

  9. ArmyATC says:

    Here are two articles concerning the ongoing 2A fight in Virginia.

    The West Virginia legislature is inviting sanctuary counties to secede from Virginia and join West Virginia.

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/01/15/state-lawmakers-invite-virginias-2a-sanctuary-counties-to-join-wv/

    Antifa has decided to join the 2nd Amendment rally. I doubt they were invited and I hope the rally organizers tell them to stay away.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/antifa-group-march-pro-gun-135931200.html

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      That latter item? “Cats and Dogs living in Sin”.

      Or a fifth column in place for the planned riot. (And probably some other folks infiltrating, too) Plus perhaps some agent-provocateurs for added zest.

      Hypergolic Mixture.

  10. 5th/77th FA says:

    That baby murdering blackface wearing KKK wanna be trash from hell WANTS a violent confrontation of any sort. That will give him a legit reason to declare a state of emergency/martial law. Virginia is the new test bed for the gunz grabbers and they know it. Antifa is there to make sure there is violence and you can bet that their expenses are being covered by some one with a D behind their name. You can also bet that the graves of true Patriots from Virginia need someone to reset their headstones. All that spinning in their graves has made them all caddywhompus.

    This whole sanctuary county is a crock of crap. The entire country has the right to keep and bear arms. NO state law can trump a federal law. Seems like THAT question was settled back in 1965. The 2A doesn’t give us the right so much to bear arms, it prevents the government from taking our arms away from us.

    Molon Labe…Bitch! And let’s not forget he has embellished his service too.

    • Cameron Kingsley says:

      If that’s how the entirety of the Left, Northam, and his band of merry weasels want to play their silly little gun grabbing game, so be it. They better not whine when the gloves come off and people begin to fight back and not fight fair. When you mess with the bull, you get the horns.

  11. Jus Bill says:

    I read earlier that Northam bugged out to a “safe house.” And…

    The VA SP just rolled this into town…
    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EOc8j92X4AIk-6w?format=jpg&name=small

    Things are going to get grim I fear.

    • Cameron Kingsley says:

      Sounds like this will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Northam and the rest of his snakes better watch it. He’s already got almost the entire state pissed at him and yet he just keeps on digging.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      So Northam ran away, called the Staat Polizei cab company to do his dirty work for him, and hopes that mayhem will ensue?

      I said he should be recalled a while back, and Virginia does have a recall article in its constitution.

      If he thinks this is the way to go, he just cut his own tow line. I hope he gets swamped but good.

      • UpNorth says:

        The dems are not only working feverishly to change the recall article to make that impossible, they also want to change the law so that the governor’s term will be 8 years, not 4, as it is presently. It’ll still limit the governor to one term, they just want to double the length of the term.

  12. The Other Whitey says:

    Northam says there’s threats and arrests have been made. I say “Pictures or it didn’t happen.” Northam should understand that; those “blackface/klan hood” photos of him tell us everything we need to know about the slithering fuck.

  13. Ex-PH2 says:

    Here’s something from a VA politician about this mess – and she’s not happy about it.

    • Cameron Kingsley says:

      Labeling all gun owners and Second Amendment supporters as domestic terrorists huh? Yeah, nothing can possibly go wrong with that plan. If that’s how they want to play their silly little game, then so be it. It won’t be as easy as they think it will be.
