Excerpt:

Virginia’s pop-up gun sanctuary movement has turned its attention to fighting the governor’s call for a $4.8 million, 18-officer team to enforce his proposed “assault weapons” ban.

Two key groups issued an alert this week to push gun owners to four budget hearings Thursday around the state, asking them to quiz state legislators if they will vote to ban or confiscate weapons.

Virginia is a powder keg, just waiting for someone to jump the gun (no pun intended).

Perhaps the cesspool that is NOVA has finally done something to wake up the rest of the state?

So their proposing to send 18 people door to door confiscating peoples legally purchased firearms?

Any bets on how many blocks they get before they need to call for backup?

When someone here said that law enforcement personnel wouldn’t confiscate weapons I predicted that he’d bring in a goon squad to do it. And so it’s playing out. He wants a confrontation and he’s going to manufacture one. Then his next move? National guard / martial law I guess.

The Democrats mask is coming off. Now it not just we want to ban assault weapons but we are banning assault weapons and will throw you in jail if you don’t comply. Notice they never really define “assault weapons”. To them an assault weapon is any semi-automatic firearm.

So the governor is going to have a squad of 18 people to enforce this law state wide.

What is this governor nucking futs?

Assault weapons normally come with 30 round mags.

What is the gun owner going to do with 12 extra rounds?

The gun grabbers that permeate the media covered for Gov Blackface, because they knew his upcoming favorite first priority was open immigration and gun confiscation. He will start with modern sporting rifles, but not end there.

Dem run states are as bad as Dem run cities. They are no longer representative of America. God Bless Trump.

YES!

I think Virginia is a state that Trump can win. IF not now, with Gov. Black-Face, LT. Gov. Rapist, and this proposed gun confiscation, it will never be Republican again.
