Gov. Ralph “Jolson” Northam is elated. Democrats have taken over the state legislature.
Dems are giddily preparing to exercise every ounce of their new-found powers.
THIS JUST IN Gov Jolson Northam and the rest of the gun-grabbers just joined the Democrat party lawsuit against Iran.
VA Democrats are suing Iran to get exclusive rights to use Death to America in Dem campaign ads.
“...requires the purchase of a permit, registration by serial number...”
Just the first step. I assume the next one will require all CHP holders to register their weapons, and then all firearms owners.
There is at least on town in the USA that requites every adult to have a gun.
I think its in Georgia but I no longer remember its name.
I don’t think they’re feeling the heat that much. I think this is just the bait and switch. They piled on everything they could think of expecting to back off on a few things. Which would then look like some sort of a victory to our side. Which it most certainly is not.
Background checks on Private Sales? I assume they’ll include a group discount for gang bangers. And isn’t it racist? I mean to expect gang members to be smart enough to have picture IDs ready when they purchase their guns?
“Years ago in a small Northern California town the city decided that people could keep certain types of rifles, all they had to do was register them.”
After many people registered these weapons, the city passed a law that they were now illegal and must be turned in.
I called out the Police dept/city on this underhanded practice and the person I mentioned it to just smiled.
Yeah I don’t either.
Good gun law IMO.
We need to wake up. The leftist’s model in how to destroy the Republic is what has been done to Virginia incrementally: demographics and fraud. This is what will be done to America overall if our side doesn’t stop it. Maybe we can’t.
Registration leads to confiscation.
Works every time.
I think it’s the old Rope a’ Dope, they never planned to push the assault weapons ban, but now by dropping it they can seem “reasonable” and still push through the other gun control bills that they actually wanted.
There is only one common sense gun law .... its called the Second Amendment.
Kennesaw if I remember correctly
Democrats trying to put lipstick on their pig.
Forward the Agenda.
Yep, Kennesaw, GA a town of 33,000 with a violent crime rate below 2% and only one murder in 6 years.
“which both would institute a “one gun a month” law “
these Dummycraps are really stupid people...
Obviously. A dummycrat always gets scared when they have guns in their faces.
Posted this the other day and they are proving me to be right.
Dont be fooled! The real aim of disarmament is NOT to suddenly pass draconian gun control laws and go door to door to confiscate them. They know that would start a revolution where they would lose.
Their intention is to THREATEN to pass those laws to get everyone all riled up and then back off and pass only a few sensible anti gun laws. The 2A crowd will think they have won but in reality they LOST SOME OF THEIR RIGHTS.
The liberals are in it for the long game where they nibble away your rights a tiny bit at a time until your great grandchildren will be hailed as heroes when they turn in the guns they inherited to be destroyed.
ACCEPT NO NEW GUN LAWS! No matter how sensible they seem.
Nope, it was in the plans all along:
“...Red Flag laws, limited number of weapons you can buy laws, Universal background check laws. ...”
Not just NO, but Oh h3ll NO to those also!
