Skip to comments.Virginia Republicans To Consider Stripping Gov. McAuliffe Of Protective Detail
Posted on 12/28/2015 7:13:00 AM PST by george76
Virginia GOP'ers returned fire over the state Democrat Attorney General Mark Herring's move to halt recognition of concealed carry permits from 25 different states.
Our General Assembly has already identified who can and cannot conceal handguns in Virginia, and we cannot have that decision undermined by recognizing permits from other states with more permissive standards, Herring said when he made the announcement last week.
Republican state legislators could strip Virginia Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe of his protective detail. Virginia Sen. Bill Carrico told The Herald Courier last Tuesday he plans to propose a budget amendment during the State Senate's January Session that would defund the governor's protective detail.
Virginia will stop recognizing the 25 out-of-state concealed carry permits on February 1. Some states that border the commonwealth will affect specific cities, like Bristol, which Virginia shares with Tennessee, a state whose permit will no longer be honored in the Old Dominion..
Residents of Bristol say it is unfair that they become criminals as a result of crossing a street in town, because their permit is no good in Virginia anymore.
I think it is a crock, Virginia resident Ted Culberson said. I think this is a political play that will have a greater impact on Bristol, Tennessee residents than Virginia residents. If a Tennessee resident has a conceal-carry permit and has their firearm they won't even be able to cross the street.
Second Amendment activists are expected to lobby Virginia state legislators from both chambers in Richmond on January 18 during lobby day at the capitol.

It would be a PR failure to go through with this of course.
But it does make for wonderful rhetoric!
Is this more of the fake Virginia Republican agenda or an actual real Virginia Republican agenda?
Seems like the proper thing to do. Betcha the congress doesn’t have the stones.
The conservatives in the House of Delegates in this state are the real deal. They’ve done a good job keeping McAuliffe and his agenda bottled up.
How about states whose CCW permits aren’t recognized by Virginia returning the favor by not recognizing Virginia driver’s licenses? Make it a citation with a $500 fine, and pull over every vehicle with Virginia plates. Tit for tat.
Once again, the issue is ‘control’.
Not of your gun, your car, your house, your job, your doctor, your bank ...
I sympathize with the folks in bristol, and i would think that ‘pushing the envelope backwards’ would work very well, for the folks on the Tenn. side, by ‘reverse ornance-ing’ the other side of the street, from chewing gum on the sidewalk on up. Make the businesses on the Va. side of the street difficult to deal with, and in fact, entice them ‘to move to another state’ by merely relocating across the street, depriving Va. of business tax revenue.
Politicians should be able to defend themselves with their Great Wit ,guns Blah
but, but,but.... if Terry McAwful is killed as governor, how can he run for President?
Why take it out on Virginians? This is industrial strength Democrat stupid. Pull over the cars with Obama and COEXIST bumper stickers.
Because they elected him. Sucks for those that didn’t but gives them a reason to work harder next time.
And being an AZ guy I think people should shun this state until we rid the Country of McCain in politics as well.
The GOP, at every level, is full of moral cowards who are more concerned with placating the liberal MSM who hates them than they are with taking a principled stand for ANYTHING. They will do nothing.
You are obviously not from Old Dominion. We went blue because of no immigration enforcement, and that is not my opinion— there are studies showing the change in demographics. Not our fault.
This is just bluster from feckless cowards - they have no balls and will NEVER do this.
Just think of all the people who moved to Virginia from Maryland thinking they would be safe from all the stupidity.
Doesn’t matter where We’re from. AZ is going left for the same reason. It’s our job to stop it or suffer under the result. No alternatives there.
Then tell the Virgina Welfareians that their EBT/Welfare cards will not be accepted anywhere outside of their state.
he he he he he he
That’ll leave a mark.
We see many VA license plates in TX. There should be a $1000 fine for crossing the Texas border, and the second infraction should mean the loss of the offender’s vehicle.
