Posted on 01/31/2016 10:36:13 AM PST by txnativegop
"The relationship between Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) and gun control groups is quickly souring after critics say he caved to pressure from the National Rifle Association.
Virginia will now recognize concealed carry permits from dozens of other states with what critics say are weaker gun laws than the commonwealth."

I wish he had stuck to his guns until the next election.
Im surprised too, keep the pressure on
Incrementalism in OUR favor for a change
It definitely given us an issue in the mid-term elections.
Driving is not a right and driver l’s are good everywhere.
Gun permits need to be the same as owning a firearm is a right
It is unusual, isn’t? I like it, but I wish it had happened when we could make the most political hay out of it.
Sometimes distancing yourself a little from the anti-Second Amendment commie and Nazi gun grabbers can be a good thing. So is standing up for the Bill of Rights, even in this era of freedom hating currently going on in this country.
that is the way it should be, but there is much more work to done with the youngsters in this country. they have been conditioned to mindlessly obey the authorities.
He doesn’t have to worry about re-election or future appointments within the DNC, does he?
Your ability to travel is a right.
Where in the Sam hell did you get the idea the state must give you permission to travel by car.
That’s nothing but big government clap trap.
Same as marriage licenses.
Governments confiscate your God given rights and then sell them back to you.
In the purest sense, since when should a permit be required for a right?
I will only refer to famous statement by Reagan concerning gov’t.
>This is welcome news. I must say I am surprised by McAuliffe’s move.<
Careful of believing the drive-by media. It was the Virginia legislature, not McAwful, who wrote the law. Granted, McAwful did not veto this bill.
Had he vetoed it, the veto would have been over ridden. He signed it to short circuit the political fallout.
Credit were credit is due. McAuliffe could have vetoed the bill, but he did not. I will say thank you (whispered) to him for that.
that may be, but it worked in the favor of the citizens and that is a good thing.
This is such a dishonest article I’m almost speechless.
Nowhere in the article was it mentioned that McAuliffe was prompted to do this because a Va. legislator introduced a bill to remove state funding for McAuliffe’s security detail after the bonehead Va. AG canceled the reciprocity agreements with the other states.
Guns for me, but not for thee, peasants.
