Bring In the National Guard to Enforce Virginia Gun Control, Says Dem

As you may have heard, Virginia Democrats have promised to pass new gun-control legislation in 2020.  

And as you also may have heard, this flagrant assault on the 2A rights of Virginians has created a groundswell of backlash as more than 75 of the state’s 95 counties have passed resolutions declaring themselves, “Second Amendment Sanctuaries,” meaning they will not observe nor enforce any law that infringes on one’s right to keep and bear arms.  

This face-off between pro-gun forces at the municipal and grassroots level and their anti-gun opposition in the Legislature raises an obvious question, who wins when the rubber meets the road?  Say the Dems do pass all eight proposals (see list below), what happens when a large percentage of the population does not come to heel.  

Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam said while there will not be “retaliation” there will be “consequences” for those who openly flout the law.  

“There’s not going to be retaliation. That’s not what I’m about. I’m about making Virginia safer,” said Northam on Wednesday.  

“If we have constitutional laws on the books and law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books, then there are going to be consequences,” he continued. “But I’ll cross that bridge if and when we get to it.”

Gov. Northam did no spell out exactly what he meant by consequences.  He did clarify that he would not confiscate firearms under the proposed ban on so-called “assault weapons.”

“We’re not going to take people’s guns away,” said the governor. 

Democratic Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin (4th District) did have some ideas as to what those consequences could be.  One way to get counties to fall in line is to cut funding; another, he said, was to bring in the national guard. 

“They certainly risk funding, because if the sheriff’s department is not going to enforce the law, they’re going to lose money. The counties’ attorneys offices are not going to have the money to prosecute because their prosecutions are going to go down,” he told the Washington Examiner.

“And ultimately, I’m not the governor, but the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law,” he continued. “That’s his call, because I don’t know how serious these counties are and how severe the violations of law will be. But that’s obviously an option he has.”

Bringing in the National Guard to quell the resistance and arrest citizens who violate these unconstitutional measures would be a disaster. Let us hope that Northam has more sense than that. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

The list of proposed gun control from local news affiliate WSET:

  • Legislation requiring background checks on all firearms sales and transactions. The bill mandates that any person selling, renting, trading, or transferring a firearm must first obtain the results of a background check before completing the transaction.
  • Legislation banning dangerous weapons. This will include bans on assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, bump stocks and silencers.
  • Legislation to reinstate Virginia’s successful law allowing only one handgun purchase within a 30-day period.
  • Legislation requiring that lost and stolen firearms be reported to law enforcement within 24 hours.
  • Legislation creating an Extreme Risk Protective Order, allowing law enforcement and the courts to temporarily separate a person from firearms if the person exhibits dangerous behavior that presents an immediate threat to self or others.
  • Legislation prohibiting all individuals subject to final protective orders from possessing firearms. The bill expands Virginia law which currently prohibits individuals subject to final protective orders of family abuse from possessing firearms.
  • Legislation enhancing the punishment for allowing access to loaded, unsecured firearm by a child from a Class 3 Misdemeanor to a Class 6 felony. The bill also raises the age of the child from 14 to 18.
  • Legislation enabling localities to enact any firearms ordinances that are stricter than state law. This includes regulating firearms in municipal buildings, libraries and at permitted events.

    The republicans are going to leave. we will take our money and businesses to other states that actually want our money. Threatening your people to take away their constitutional rights and threatening them with the military is not a smart move. It is an abuse of power!!! We will leave and the tax money that you think just magically appears out of nowhere will no longer be there because the people who make most of the money in your state (the republicans) are gone. they moved their businesses to states that actually want their money and respect their rights and don’t threaten their own people with military force. In my mind forced compliance leads to discompliance. Meaning bringing the military power to force people to give up their second amendment will only cause more disruption in the government that you think you are fixing. Sadly, I think this is how we fall into another civil war. The nation will fold in on itself. divide into two again. I think we should avoid that. But its really the Dems decision. If they want to take our rights away as AMERICAN CITIZENS than so be it. but I think they will come to realize that they no longer have money to fund their programs and whatever they think fixes the government.

      I’m just gonna say this. We are no longer the America we thought we were. We are now corrupted. Not only that but the politicians have seemed to forget that they are here for what the American people want. NOT FOR THEMSELVES AND THOSE PATHETIC IDEOLOGIES THAT THINK ARE FIXING THE GOVERNMENT WHEN IT IS ACTUALLY BREAKING IT. being 15 years of age, and still, in high school, it still means that there are a couple of things I do not understand. But remember that country that actually cared for its people. We have deviated from that. Remember how it said in the constitution, that if need be the American people can rewrite the government. I think that point is coming closer and closer to the GPS. We need to get it together. but that point may never reach cause we most likely will be divided nations.

  • Ted December 24, 2019, 11:53 am

    Ain’t going to happen, Gov. There’s no way a Nat’l Guard can force citizens of 75 of 95 counties to do your bidding. And the Nat’l Guard is also under the auspices of the federal government–you think Trump will allow that to happen? Not. Also, the Nat’l Guard is made up of your citizens. You think that they are going to go and point guns in the faces of their loved ones, friends and neighbors to enforce your unconstitutional laws? Not.

    Gov, you are a pompous, unrighteous, anti-servant of the people of Virginia. So are your legislators collaborating with you.

  • Cecil B December 22, 2019, 1:17 am

    These idiot politicians are going to keep pushing the envelope until we have law abiding, tax-paying Citizens exchanging gunfire with police and or National Guard.

    As a country, we could very well find ourselves in a very untenable situation. I am just glad that I am nearly at the end of the road and won’t be around to watch the Republic go to hell.

  • Tom December 21, 2019, 10:24 am

    I just have one question….If over 75 of the 95 counties have declared themselves 2A sanctuary counties…..HOW IN HELL did both houses in the state of Virginia fall under the control of Democratic Nazi’s????? Either gun owners are not voting or…..sounds to me like more of RIGGED ELECTIONS!!!!!!

    If This doesn’t show Americans and Especially Virginians how important it is to vote!,Anyone can see that an Overwhelming Amount of Virginians do not want these New Gun Laws that are being forced upon them from These far left loons that will control both houses of The State Legislature along with The Baby Killing Dr. That is their Governor, oh yeah and he’s a Past and Probably Still Current Member of the KKK. But I bet it’s a Safe Guess that there’s Probably Thousands of Virginians who Love their Guns and do not agree with these Unconstitutional Guns Laws that will be Passed in January of 2020,and I bet that those same Thousands of Virginians did not exercise their Right as an American Citizen to Vote in The November Election and Because they didn’t, This is The Result!,American’s Must Exercise Their Right to Vote Every Single Election!,To Prevent These Wackos on The Socialist Left from Destroying This Great Republic along With Our Most Treasured Freedoms,Like The Right To Keep and Bear Arms!,Next November Let’s Stop These Crazy People from Destroying our Country, Get Out and Vote To Re-Elect President Trump and Candidates Across this Country that stand for What Makes America Great, Our Constitution and Our Freedoms Such as The 1st and the 2nd Ammendments!

    • John Foster December 20, 2019, 11:53 pm

      You call them “socialist.” I call them exactly what they are and to this day none of them have denied it. Robert, I don’t know how old you are so I’m going to start at the end of WWII. The allies were against Nazi Germany and the Axis countries. At the end of Nazi existence when allied troops were racing for Berlin the Communist Russian troops from the old USSR attacked other allied armies. That is one reason for the Berlin Wall. Since then our nation has fought communism in the Cold War, the Korean War, the Bay of Pigs, the Viet Nam War and many other undeclared wars. USSR = Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republic. Now we can reason that Socialist = Communist. Also Communist are enemies of the United States. As such we can deduce that the “socialist democrat party” is in reality the “Communist democrat party.” We also now know they are enemies of the United States.
      The very first thing communist do when they want to take over a country is to take all guns away from Citizens. That is so the citizens cannot fight back against an oppressive communist government. It gets worse from there but you can read it for yourself in old history books from the 1950’s up to the mid 1970’s. Everything I have said can be verified either online or in your older history books.

  • RICK December 18, 2019, 6:36 am

    (The Dems are certainly picking their catch-phrases with great forethought.}

    This snake-pit of *%^$#@ politicians REALLY don’t understand Virginians.

    I’m sorry, civil discourse is over when you threaten to come take my guns.

    Let’s fInd a nice stout Liberty Tree and some strong rope; better yet, some tar and feathers (and we’ll heat the tar to about 300F; cause we’re THAT angry.)

    I’m ever-so proud of the fact my people arrived in VA in 1609; we’re not about to put up with the BS of silly little Progressive dirtbags like these. As a young lad growing up in Chesapeake, every single day I read VA’s motto on the flag:

    “Sic Semper Tyrannis.”

    If more than 75 of the state’s 95 counties have passed resolutions declaring themselves, “Second Amendment Sanctuaries,” meaning they will not observe nor enforce any law that infringes on one’s right to keep and bear arms, then only the few jerks who hold office are the ones who want it and “WE THE PEOPLE” do not.
    Make any laws you want and call it constitutional of you want, but the people will let you know you made a mistake.
    HMM, I wonder what happened in California, are they all asleep, or are they all just Sheep?
    The British crown made laws here once restricting gun rights that was not anything like what the people wanted and they did something about it.

  • Quis Custodiet December 14, 2019, 2:52 pm

    I’m looking forward to VA being safe, like Chicago, DC, Baltimore, L.A. and Newark with our new Nazi gun laws. I hope Guvn’r Nawthum hires MS-13 cadre to augment the National Guard in enforcing these common-sense safety measures.

    • Alan Brown December 20, 2019, 6:03 am

      Try finding an MS -13 to discuss that with. If you do, they will kill you. They don’t want to be identified. Law enforcement does not hire Murderers and rapists to work for them, ever.

        Maybe not intentionally, but I can give you PLENTY of cases where cops murdered and raped… plenty.

  • David C. Davis December 14, 2019, 12:46 pm

    Isn’t this the guy that blithely said it was completely fine to kill a perfectly normal baby after it is born if the mother tells the doctor she doesn’t want it? And he wants to protect the public from 2nd Amendment advocates? Wasn’t it Hitler in the 1930’s that wanted to protect the public so he had all Germans register their firearms and then had his henchmen take the list and forced all gun owner to give up their guns? That’s not going to happen in America. The public initiative in this state became law a couple years back. Most counties quickly became sanctuary counties for 2nd Amendment purposes. So far, the only thing we’ve heard is squeaks and squeals from the attorney general. Kind of hard for the governor and attorney general to have it both ways, as they totally support sanctuary status for illegal aliens.

  • Dennis Ploof December 14, 2019, 11:38 am

    I have not read all of the comments but one of the first things that comes to mind is the fact that all gun owners need to make it a permanent practice to vote and keep these communist traitors out of our Government. We have too many Democrats in our Government and as far as I’m concerned they are all Communist. With people like Soros and Bloomberg there will come a day when simply voting to keep them back will not be enough. We have let this get too far out of hand already because there are not enough gun owners voting.
    GUN OWNERS PLEASE VOTE EVERY ELECTION LOCAL AND NATIONAL!!!

  • Rex Weible December 14, 2019, 1:02 am

    Do not give in to this yahoo that thinks it is his state to do what he wants with. Once your weapons are gone so are your freedoms and even your lives as you now know them. I believe what your beautiful state does about this left winged socialist idiot will set the tone for the many other states that will most likely encounter this very same event. My state of Ohio hasn’t fallen into this yet but many ideas such as red flag laws ect have been tossed around. In short we (The Real Americans) are with you 120% , Do what you must do and if bloodshed is a must so be it. God bless America and may he ride by your sides. ( V )

  • JohnL December 13, 2019, 10:16 pm

    I m not sure what to say. He better watch out somebodies going to get shot. Does he know that there are people who can easily shoot, accurately, past 800 yards? Does he really mean the National guard? They are made up of us? He is really being very dangerous. Is this to cover up the fact he wears black face? This is way to dangerous. What ever you guys do I support you.

    • Quis Custodiet December 14, 2019, 2:56 pm

      I think he’s going to borrow the NY National Guard, compliments of Michael Doomberg. Our own guys here in VA would probably end up rolling up on the guv’ner’s mansion in their APCs before deploying against their families and neighbors.

  • Bob Gee December 13, 2019, 10:04 pm

    The Virginia State Seal along with the State motto is emblazoned on the State Flag. The seal in the center of the flag features the words “VIRGINIA,” and “SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS” (Latin meaning “Thus always to tyrants”). Depicting the state’s motto is the goddess Virtue holding a sword and a spear and standing with her foot on the chest of the slain tyrant. The Governor would do well to contemplate his state’s motto!
    As a former resident of this beautiful state I cry for what is happening to it.

  • TS Thomas December 13, 2019, 9:08 pm

    I haven’t seen it discussed much, but most reservists aren’t willing to enforce this either. As in, quitting the reserves, units becoming undermanned, undeployable and useless. But since no order has yet come down, all reservists are still showing up for drills, getting paid, and you can bet, they’re talking about this crap from Richmond. Take that to the bank. The Guard is just about entirely on the side of the 2nd Amendment. Much the same with a significant portion of the LEO community. The secondary question is: How do the Libtards look when their “enforcement” force, revolts against them? When we have solidarity, they can’t win.

    Well Virginia, welcome to California. We have all those laws and more. I hope you stand your ground on the 2A sanctuary cities.

Double standard BS from the left as usual.

    Go ahead, Mr. Northam. Not only will your jails be full of the cops you need to accomplish this, but National Guardsmen, too. Because they aren’t full time soldiers. They have real jobs 24/7. They’re the working backbone of the counties and cities that have stood together to tell you where to stick it. My guess would be that there were a ton of those National Guardsmen standing beside us at the rallies all across the Commonwealth. So when your’re all done with your idiotic saber rattling, the only ones left to actually come and TAKE our guns will be you and your cream puff snowflake minions in Fairfax. Good luck with that.

    The real danger on display here has been present for the last couple of decades and threatens to divide the nation in half and result in violence, and that is: The migration of Americans to urban areas since the industrial revolution of the late 1800s — 1950s resulted in national elections where the popular vote was not the same as the electoral college results, as intended by the founding fathers, just for that purpose.

    Add to that the intentional invitation to mass immigration through lack of enforcement of immigration laws and government sponsorship of millions of illiterate citizens from third world countries who by and large are receptive to the Democrats socialist free stuff big government cradle to grave entitlements by committee agenda.

    Virginia progressives (read commies) are even bragging about how mass illegal immigration has allowed the urban centers to outvote the majority of the counties in Virginia, which are not urban. This was the issue when GWB defeated Gore, with Trump over Clinton and in many other races on state and local levels States turning blue are the result of urban centers with huge mass illegal and legal immigration out voting the rest of the states and in counties the same.

    Pretty much all that can be said about this matter has been said in others comments, or will be touched upon soon if not. I will specify the obvioius, this man is a traitor, and knows nothing about the Contitution he swore an oath too. He apparantly also knows nothing about law even if he holds a degreei in such and of that I am not certain. Any law or statute that goes against the Constitution is not law, and it is not only the duty of the people but their right to disobey it. Any law including background checks that goes against the infringement of the 2nd amendment is unconstitutional and therefore it is the right and the duty of the people to not only disobey them, but to drag this scumbag traitor from his office by his hair or ears, give him a swift trial on the capital steps, upon conviction, hang or shoot him upon conviction, and feed his sorry bones to the hogs. Now I hope I have been politcally correct as to not offend the weak like this scumbag governor.

  • Logan December 13, 2019, 1:45 pm

    The first Revolutionary war started when the British tried to confiscate guns and ammo. What do you think is going to happen when a Governor tries to do that? Do you think it will result in a happy ending? Do they really think people are going to roll over and give up their guns??? People will fight, people will die. The civilians outnumber the military. Do you think you will have a loyal national guard that will enforce or shoot at civilians? There will be blood on the ground if you try this. Anyone who decides to enforce this will have a target on them.

    Did the Governor not read or understand the Constitution of the United States? Does he even know how to read? Did he not swear to uphold the Constitution when he took office? Sounds like an impeachable offence.

    • Peter F December 13, 2019, 6:37 pm

      Our governor has also promoted “aborting” babies after they are born. I think the there should be no argument that that is murder. For a pediatrician (his background is not law) this seems particularly appalling but his comments on ‘abortion’ get little publicity. People seem more concerned about an old picture of him in ‘black face’. Do I believe him when he says he won’t push for confiscation? Not a bit. I believe very little of what he says.

    • Edward Allen December 14, 2019, 6:21 am

      It could be that the 20 counties not going against the governor are the most populated ones. Much as Clark county drivers all the anti gun laws in Nevada, the city of Richmond has more people in it Richmond many of the counties do. Large cities are the bastion of liberals and are where most of this anti 2A crud comes from.

      If a second civil war were to start, the good news would be that large cities are much easier to capture as they are only consumers of resources, not producers. Cut of their food and water and energy will quickly fall.

Treat the disease and the symptoms will go away (although that direction would garner less publicity and proof that someone in office is “Doing Something” about the problem – and let’s face it, the Republic is all about good Press (Optics) these days rather than substance.

What will he do if the guard whose oath is to protect and defend the constitution take up arms against the law enforcement officers that attempt to enforce his plan? This might be the start of the second Civil War!!

    • David Cheatham December 13, 2019, 4:45 pm

  • George Paul December 13, 2019, 12:32 pm

    I will pray for you VA citizens, that you vote this self righteous zealot out of office, l am surprised he was not one of the elite talking heads in the Impeachment witch-hunt as he throws around the constitution as it will be enforced but he must not of read the current amendment protecting your current 2nd amendment right. Good thing our framers of the constitution were not this self serving. Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” The National Guard can always claim conscientious objector for going against his fellow citizens. Good luck Virginia, I will keep you in my prayers.

  • John Bianco December 13, 2019, 12:26 pm

    As a country in the 21st century with a constitutional 2nd amendment written 233 years ago some want to continue on a path of resisting any change. Denying change and realizing the need to ratify or pass laws is only self-serving for that smaller number of citizens. Given the world we all live in today where civilizations can become extinct with the push of a button and sales policies of personal weapons un tethered in some states , those denying any change should be held culpable and answerable to loop holes and out of control gun sales.

    • No1hunter December 13, 2019, 4:15 pm

      If you don’t like the US Constitution that was written 233 years ago, you are free to leave this country that is governments by that 233 year old Constitution and go somewhere that doesn’t have one. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass while leaving. I bet you are one of those that feels the 233 year old 1st amendment should only apply to liberals and their idiotic agenda (I was going to say thinking but very few liberals are capable of do that)

    • Steve December 13, 2019, 9:06 pm

      Doesn’t matter when the Constitution was written. The bill of rights is just as relevant today as it was then.

      We as a country have changed a lot in 233 years sir. What hasn’t changed is tyranny. It is the same now as it was then. Our Constitution is ours and ours alone. The Bill of Rights is just as relevant now as it was then.

    • Retnavet December 14, 2019, 5:50 am

    • Nmg December 29, 2019, 3:06 pm

      Gun sales are not out of control. The second amendment was never about hunting, or “sport shooting” the second amendment was written by men who just liberated a nation from tyranny. These founding fathers knew that the citizens keeping and bearing arms where key to a free society. I have many weapons and reloading capabilities, I will never give up my firearms to anyone!!! I am not a danger to anyone unless I have the need to defend myself or my god given or constitutionally given rights, then and only then will I be a danger to someone and you don’t want to be that person Or persons. I will die for my rights if need be but I will not be the only one!!! Ps good luck with the body armor I’ll be taking high and low chest shots. Read this to above and below where armor protects. Who wants to be a quadriplegic or live without their balls???

  • Peter Nelson December 13, 2019, 12:14 pm

    This is exactly why we have a Constitution and exactly what the Founding Fathers of The United States Of America feared, a person in Government who wants to ignore our Heritage and force his will, his version of and perhaps even a popular for the moment law upon the rest of us Citizens. He is abusing his power, he is trampling on our Constitution. He knows we have a Constitution. He knows we have the Second Amendment. He is willfully ignoring The Law and imposing his will upon the People. I can not abide men such as him. He is on a path that perhaps shall lead to the spilling of American blood. I understand he has a belief that guns kill people and that he in his way can do something about that. However he must work within the existing framework and not force his agenda. Many men have gone down this exact same Tyrannical path, forcing their populist agenda upon the land. Times change and each new generation is exposed to new and different forces, still if they work within the existing Constitutional framework of our Government then we shall be fine. If not, especially in regard to our second amendment “WE THE PEOPLE” are armed and “WE THE PEOPLE” Shall never Yield or fought for rights that are guaranteed under our Constitution.
    Support our Laws, support our Constitution, support our Government when is it abiding by of Constitution and fight Tyranny where ever it rears it’s ugly head. If WE allow “this” man to force his agenda then who is next? What other new development shall take hold and inspire well meaning men to ignore our American Constitution and trample on our rights?

    So, it’s OK to cut aid to counties that declare themselves 2A Sanctuary Counties. Imagine that. But let the Trump administration threaten to withhold federal money from cities/counties/states that are Sanctuaries for illegals and we have WWIII underway. Hypocrites all. There are 10 Democrat-controlled city states in Virginia. I’m willing to be lunch that the vast majority of any ‘gun violence’ occurs in those cities. Take those out of the mix and there’d be no ‘gun violence’ problem to rage against. Ditto for every Dem-controlled city in the country. And I’m not so sure the National Guard units in VA would comply. Democrats – Creating problems wherever they nest.

    • Kenny Smith December 16, 2019, 7:47 pm

      WELL SAID EDDIE !!!!!!!!!

  • Gerald Santomassimo December 13, 2019, 11:13 am

    Using the National Guard to perform police duties where the public is not rioting but is merely refusing to comply with one or two is likely quite a stretch of the Militia Act of 1903 (32 Stat. 775). A bigger roadblock is the backlash that would accompany it. I’m not so sure the dems want to go there. That’s too far into totalitarian country for even them.

  • ARLibertarian December 13, 2019, 11:12 am

    • Nicholas December 13, 2019, 4:05 pm

      The National Guard has never been under complete control of the States. It is part of the army, and can in no way be compared to “the Militia of the several States”, in the Constitution. National Guard is the army and comes under congress’s delegated authority under Article I, § 10, Cl. 3 to allow the States to “keep Troops *** of war in time of Peace”.

      Rudy PERPICH, Governor of Minnesota, et al v. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, et al. No. 89-542, 1990 – The DOD is in control of the National Guard. That is why it can function overseas.

  • No1hunter December 13, 2019, 11:02 am

    Let’s see, the Federal Government can’t withhold funds from sanctuary cities and states who refuse to uphold federal law but this bozo wants to withhold state money from counties that won’t uphold state law? Are all Liberals this ignorant?

  • wdcraftr December 13, 2019, 10:15 am

    It’s funny that he uses the words “Constitutional Laws”, in his wording of his unconstitutional laws.. He calls his own unconstitutional laws, constitutional, even though they Violate the 2nd amendment of the Constitution, as well as other amendments.. It’s funny how politicians think that they can just re-write the constitution anytime it fits their agenda.. They forget that the Declaration of Independence gives the people the “Right and Duty”, to Rebuke a tyrannous govt, for that is what the 2nd Amendment is all about…
    It looks like Virginia will be a testing ground for the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence..
    I guess we will see who the Real “Oath Keepers” are. The Politicians who Swore to Uphold the Constitution, or the People, those who served in the armed Forces, who Swore to uphold the Constitution.. Don’t legal immigrants who become citizens, also Swear to uphold the Constitution?

    But this is Not about gun control, but about Satan and the Catholic Papacy/Vatican, gaining Power to impose the Mark of the Beast upon all the people of the world.. The Catholic church leadership, system, is the Beast, and it’s Mark will be Forced Sunday worship to the Beast. But God the Creator says to Worship Him on His holy 7th day sabbath, Saturday.. So therefore What Day we then Worship on, will show Who we are Worshiping, and will determine if we receive Eternal Life, or Eternal Death.. Once every person on Earth has made their choice, Jesus will return, and life on Earth will be over.. The saved meet Jesus in the air and go to heaven, those who are unsaved are destroyed at the brightness of His coming..
    We fight Not against humans, but against Satan, his Demon angels, the powers of darkness.. And we will see that darkness in these last days exhibited in the words and actions of people, and the world’s govts. enforcing Pagan Religious laws upon the people.. As it was in the Dark Ages, so shall it be again..

    • Wayne December 13, 2019, 7:39 pm

    What were you people in Virginia thinking of when you voted this nutcase into office?
    Northram and his next in command two Democrats were all involved in either racist actions or sexual assault accusations just a few months ago. But instead of doing the honorable thing and admitting their actions and accepting the consequences, instead of stepping down they all continued holding office. Why? The fourth person in line to take office was a Republican, so it benefited the Democrat party to throw accountability to the wind and stay in office. Evidently the people of Virginia allowed them to get by with this so now you reap what you sow. You have a corrupt governor who is willing to walk all over your rights just to further his agenda.

    So, the gov is threatening to cut funding from non compliant counties. Maybe these counties should keep all their tax money that they send to the governor.

Maybe President Trump can isolate the communist governor and counties that agree with him, and send federal aid dollars directly to the non compliant counties.

    We need to take a firm stand against unlawful laws.
    The moron who signed the unconstitutional law still has his armed body guards.
    As the Progressive’s are elected to more states we will have more unlawful laws shoved down our throats.

  • Mario Acevedo December 13, 2019, 9:55 am

    You’d think that if the majority of your state’s police said they will not enforce a law, then perhaps you should rethink said law. The governor is proposing withholding funding of the police who don’t comply, which means he is willing to hold the state’s public safety and criminal justice system hostage to Michael Bloomberg’s schemes. Also, many in the Va guard own those “banned” weapons and are members of law enforcement, so he’s expecting them to arrest themselves? Finally, the Va guard is trained to fight terrorism overseas and provide disaster relief, not to serve as a police force in the US.

  • rsmalt December 13, 2019, 9:53 am

  • Ronnie Pigg December 13, 2019, 9:44 am

    Passing a law and then trying to enforce it without having a strategy to enforce it is the same philosophy as going to war without any weapons or men. That idiot governor needs to strap on a weapon and go take the guns himself. If he chooses not to than why should he expect the National Guard to try and take firearms from their own friends and family?
    And if Virginia depends on tourism as revenue they will need to raise their taxes because tourists will avoid that state like the plague.
    The Idiot Governor will only serve 1 term, maybe less, but he will go down in history as starting the biggest conflict in the U.S. since the civil war.

    • Tom K December 13, 2019, 10:29 am

      Scripture tells us that there will be Worldwide revolutions in these last days, as well as wars and rumors of wars. A time of trouble as has Never been is coming upon the Earth. It’s Not about guns, or people, but about spiritual powers of Darkness, and about Worship.. Satan is using the Catholic church, the Vatican, to get the Governments to impose a coming Sunday law, Mark of the Beast, in the name of Climate Change, and Common Good.. This law will progress into Forced Sunday Worship, an Abomination to God the Creator and His holy 7th day Sabbath Worship on Saturday.. Therefore what day we then Worship on, will show Who we are Worshiping, and will determine our Eternal destiny, Life or Death eternal..

  • Smitty December 13, 2019, 9:41 am

    The line is drawn in the sand. Now Virginians must decide. Will you stand your ground? The counties must stop sending revenue (when the time comes and it’s coming) to the State, and all Nation Guard and law enforcement must honor their oath to Protect and Defend the Constitution and the PEOPLE’S rights from a tyrannical government. Honor your state’s moto: Sic Semper Tyrannis. Remember Katrina and how the people were disarmed by police and some National Guardsmen who either disregarded their oath or were ignorant of it and just followed orders.

  • Michael December 13, 2019, 9:40 am

  • Michael December 13, 2019, 9:34 am

    So the Governor “suggests” cutting funding from counties that don’t kneel to his wishes? What will the state do if those counties simply stop reporting any criminal justice data to the state’s State Police and other state agencies? And what if citizens tear down state road signs, fail to have their vehicles inspected and registered, hide income and fail to report that income for taxing purposes, go to local interstate and secondary roads and block these with tire fires or other obstacles, and on, and on, and on? I suggest “The People”, quietly and subversively, can ultimately cause the state a lot more trouble and expense than the state can cause the people. And if the people begin these type of activities, what then happens to their tourist industry? No one wants to visit a state where their is open hostility by the citizens to their “govern”ment masters. This is going to be fun to watch!

    • Ronald Gonshorowski December 13, 2019, 7:47 pm

      Obviously he has a solution for your tire fires.
      He will bring out his not so secret weapon that will make you quiver in your boots.

  • Joer Haigh December 13, 2019, 8:15 am

    So let me get this straight…We’re not allowed to use the National Guard to go into what were once beautiful cities / towns to live in, but are now overrun by drug dealing gangs with illegally obtained guns, we can’t do that… But… You think you should be able to send the National Guard around to take legally purchased guns away from law abiding citizens?? I don’t think so. Time for SCOTUS to end this silliness, and uphold 2A rights.

      ‘SCOTUS’? You’re going to have a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry long wait

  • Steve Tremblay December 13, 2019, 8:04 am

    If there are all these pro 2a people against the jack wagon Governor how sis he get elected? So why don’t they recall him?

      Richmond, Norfolk, Quantico, Alexandria. The rest of the State is red. Look at a political map. It looks just like the U.S. political map. The major cities are Democrat. the rest of the country is Republican. Except the Peoples Republic of Commiefornication.

  • Mike Birky December 13, 2019, 7:14 am

    I don’t live in Virginia, but FULLY support the 2A sanctuary cities.

    Since the election was such a short time ago, there should be considered a recall election if within the states election laws. An impeachment would not happen.

    If the National Guard was called out to enforce, that would end badly as I believe that the majority of the units and its members are outside of the capital, hence in 2A cities and towns. So the response towards enforcing gun laws, zero!

    If funding was held back, I’m certain that many members of each community would stand up and volunteer time as a deputy or other team member to protect their community and citizens.

    Virginia is a beautiful state, unfortunately democrats are leading the state to destruction with their policies.
    Do the citizens want to be like California?
    I pray that they don’t. Taking a stand all the way to the capital to change will be required!

    • Nicholas December 13, 2019, 11:17 am

      Here’s the problem. The National Guard is not Militia, nor can it be. Read the Constitution and the associated Militia Acts, and State statutes.
      National Guard is part of the army and does not have the same authority as Militia. Consequently, as we’ve seen in the past, if ordered to do something it complies. Militia on the other hand is a branch that is controlled by the People with the purpose of supporting the rights of the People. It can refuse orders from public officials, and instead arrest those who violate the oath of office.
      I have no idea why those who claim to be pro-2nd ignore and disparage the first 13 words of the amendment that clearly expresses that it is “necessary to the security of a free State”.

  • Don Wolfal December 13, 2019, 7:05 am

    Withholding county funding to make the come into line is an impeacheable offense , quid pro quo according to the Democrats so impeach the governor.

    • JD December 13, 2019, 8:53 am

      Haha! True dat. Maybe the VA citizens will withhold their funding from the oppressive state government.

    • Nicholas December 13, 2019, 11:28 am

      Explain to me how you, We the People, enforce the law if we ignore the parts of the Constitution that tell us how to do so?

  • Ghost December 13, 2019, 7:00 am

    This is why Bloomberg Bought…Virginia. His stooge of a Governor is now going to enforce violence against ALL “Law abiding. Constitutional protected Gun Owners”. This may be ground zero for the next revolution. Lock & Load America, & “Remember” who the real enemy is.

    • ~ Occams December 13, 2019, 10:26 am

      Why do you think DC and MSM spend sooooo much time trying to make Americans hate each other for their color?

      DIVIDE AND CONQUER

      If Americans would stop falling for this stupidity, DC would be in REAL trouble.

  • Mr. Sparkles December 13, 2019, 6:57 am

    Calling out the national guard, who have all taken an oath to “protect the constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic”? That sounds like a great way to bring the whole issue to a head.

    What a “maroon”!

  • Joe December 13, 2019, 6:37 am

    As of 12/12/2019 We have 91 counties as 2a

    • shrugger December 13, 2019, 8:38 am

      Right on!

  • Will Drider December 12, 2019, 10:57 pm

    Let’s recap: local LE and Counties (75 of 95) will not comply. The Virginia National Guard is composed of “Citizen Soldiers” from those same Counties. The VNG Members also swear an Oath FIRST ITEM: to defend the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES,”

    Governors “mouthpiece” errand boy just commited the VA version of the Swalwell ” We got Nukes” threat. These type remarks arise from desperation to bully their Plans into reality.

    Its going to be an interesting VA Tea Party, possibly a Mexican Standoff, at least till the next elections. I think 75 of 95 Counties voting populations could easily change political representation and B.S. laws the gun grabbers enact.

    • shrugger December 13, 2019, 8:40 am

      They’re saying 91 Counties now.

  • Donald Radtke December 12, 2019, 5:05 pm

    So Virginia is where the revolution is gonna start?

  • Ronnie Maeker December 12, 2019, 12:29 pm

    Sooo..call out the National Guard to enforce laws that are unconstitutional………

    I was taught that we were a nation of laws (a Republic) and the Constitution rules unless powers are SPECIFICALLY designated to states.

    The Second Amendment is part of the Constitution.

    What part of this is not clear….???

    • Nicholas December 13, 2019, 11:30 am

      Apparently the first 13 words of the second amendment are not clear to those who profess to be supporters of the right to keep and bear arms.
