"Never let a good crisis go to waste." - Winston Churchill
Well, Virginia's Gun Grabbing politicians sure didn't, and they played on the vulnerabilities of many Liberty Loving Virginians. (YEP! I said it!)
As us Die-Hard Gun Rights outlets have warned our readers and communities of the underlying schemes that Gun Grabbing politicians WILL use during the COVID-19 crisis, many even within our 2A folds have fallen for the propaganda meant to keep you complacent and compliant.
Now... HERE. WE. ARE. (WE TOLD YOU SO!)
On Good Friday, April 10th, 2020... Moms Demand Action's Gun Sense Governor (D-VA), Ralph Northam, slipped passed many Virginians, as they scanned the net for N95 masks and toilet paper, and he SIGNED INTO LAW FIVE NEW UNCONSTITUTIONAL GUN CONTROL MEASURES.
From the article linked in pic above:
Governor Northam signed these bills:
Senate Bill 240 and House Bill 674 establish an Extreme Risk Protective Order, which creates a legal mechanism for law enforcement to temporarily separate a person from their firearms when they represent a danger to themselves or others. Virginia is now among 19 other states and the District of Columbia in enacting this type of law.
House Bill 9 requires gun owners to report their lost or stolen firearms to law enforcement within 48 hours or face a civil penalty.
House Bill 1083 prevents children from accessing firearms by increasing the penalty for recklessly leaving firearms in their presence.
Governor Northam proposed amendments to these bills:
Senate Bill 479 and House Bill 1004 prohibit individuals subject to protective orders from possessing firearms, require them to turn over their firearms within 24 hours, and certify to the court that they have turned over their weapons. Governor Northam amended this legislation at the request of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance. This will enhance safety for victims by allowing judges to hold the respondent in contempt of court if they fail to comply with the certification requirements.
Am I pissed? Damn right I am.
YOU SHOULD BE, TOO!
While “This is a monumental day,” as Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw said in the article above about Gun Control measures to curb Virginia's "Gun Violence" issue... which we don't even have..., it's a MONUMENTAL KICK IN THE ASS FOR GUN RIGHTS ACTIVISTS AND VIRGINIANS.
While you fell for the fear tactics of one of the most well paid propaganda pushing organizations in the world, Moms Demand Action and other Gun Rights Groups swooped in for the win.
Gun Control: 1
Gun Rights: 0
It was their plan all along...
