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.

There you go, Progtards. A real Hitlerian politician for you to bawl about. Oh wait. You actually WANT a Hitlerian politician as long he/she/it “enforces” jack-boot tyranny in the name of “progressivism.”

Seems a good time to recall:

During the NOLA gun confiscation fiasco (exemplified by video of a team of armed men talking down then jumping an elderly lady with a mundane revolver), I recall video of teams confronting armed private guards carrying AR15s: demands to hand ‘em over were met with little more than a polite smile ... and the confiscators soon moved on to other softer targets.

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

That is exactly what the commie gun grabbers want. They want to play public opinion against the 2nd Amendment.

When you just signed up to get some free tuition and now they want you to go door to door to confiscate guns. 😯

Nothing has encouraged me regarding the future of these United States as the recent response of most of Virginia to Governor Blackface.

It is incredible the left does not understand the resolve of the armed giant they keep poking at.

So, blackface abortionist is creating a militia to shoot and kill non-violent citizens who won’t give up their legal guns.

Yes. That’s what it’s all about. He obviously doesn’t want to take guns from violent criminals. Just from NRA members who vote Republican.

You say, he isn’t going to do that! Yes he is. 18 cops on the team now, 1,018 later. 18 won’t work, so he’ll expand it to 1,018.

Why have a team of cops do this if you don’t plan to shoot and kill anyone who resists?

The legal dynamics of mailing Virginia flags to the governor of Virginia strikes me as interesting.

$4.8 million is a lot of money to pay for eighteen walking targets.

"...it will never be Republican again."

?

With 200,000 dead leftists in VA - it will never be demoncrap again. The party will not even exist.

I hope the Conservatives there that sit out elections (some on this site) due to RINOs and GOPe types are happy with the results of their helping to cede power to the Democrats.

They were certainly warned as to what would happen if they went ahead and tried to ‘teach the Republican Party a lesson’ by sitting out November elections.

Hard to feel sorry for them.

Trump should take VA.

I believe and have stated this several times

Trump will take every state he got in 16

And will get most if not all states he got 45% of the vote or better and lost

And he will take the battle to the states where he got around 40% of the vote in 16 and don’t be surprised if he takes a few of those as well

Doesn’t matter who the D nominee is

I lived in NORVA Fairfax County for much of the 80s and it was always a bastion of conservatism. The liberals lived in Maryland. WTF happened?
