Virginia governorís call for 18-person gun ban force comes under fire

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.

Appreciate your moniker, there (obverse of Sic Semper Tyrannis)

You, Sir, are a history scholar, and probably a gentleman, but we won’t hold that against you. 👍

“WTF happened?”

It began with the second invasion by the north. Then came the illegals.
In NORVA you can’t swing a cat without hitting a yankee, muslim, Indian, paki or some flavor of south of the Rio Grande illegal.

It seems the Christian Science Monitor was hijacked by the same leftist cabal that hijacked the Christianity Today.

I massively agree with your post. However, after interacting with that ilk (the pristine and pure and incredibly self righteous) on this site, they blame everyone but themselves as they assist in the dismantling of the US as we know it.

Daniel P Love. The BLM agent who murdered several people and got away with it.

He was fired from the BLM in 2017 and has yet to be charged with any of his crimes.

Northern Virginia supplies 1 out of every 4 votes in the state of Virginia. The region gets more democrat by the hour.

Northern Virginia has 10 out of the 40 state senate seats and 25 out of the 100 state house seats for a total of 35 seats. Every single seat is held by a democrat.

The voters in this region are incredibly self satisfied and are united with their hatred of Trump. Nothing is going to deter them from voting against Trump.

There was record turnout for the democrats in Nov 2019 for the state elections and the key motivation was a dem vote was a proxy vote against Trump.

This while the gun owners stayed at home on election day cleaning their guns in their red buffalo plaid shirts while whistling Dixie.

Trump lost Virginia by 250,000 votes and with the demographics changing rapidly towards the democrats, Trump doesn't have a chance.

Trump is not going to campaign in Virginia and isn't going to spend a dime in this state.

Also, keep in mind, that both state houses flipped to the dems while a sitting democrat governor either wore blackface or donned a KKK sheet (maybe both), a democrat lt. gov has three credible claims from women claiming he raped them and the dem attorney general has admitted being a serial blackface artist. The dems still had a record turnout propelled by the liberals of Northern Virginia and you think Trump will win Va?

Nope and something to think about.

I read a few months ago, Trump is not going to campaign in Virginia and is going to focus on more promising states. That could change, perhaps, but at the moment, no.

Who’d be stupid enough to take one of those jobs?

I might. I'd go to the local Dunkin' Donuts read some magazines, use their wi-fi. At the end of the day I will report no one was home, and some homes had tough dogs keeping me at bay.

No he's campaigning in Virginia. He even has a special "Virginia for Trump" campaign slogan:

I would bet that there will be no call for backup, they likely will not have the chance to make that call.
