    An 11-year-old girl toting a loaded AR-15 assault weapon appeared Monday at a legislative hearing with her grandfather, who is supporting a proposal that would allow visitors to Idaho who can legally possess firearms to carry a concealed handgun within city limits. Charles Nielsen addressed the committee that voted to send the legislation to the full House as Bailey Nielsen stood at his side with the weapon slung over her right shoulder, but did not say anything. “Bailey is carrying a loaded AR-15,” Charles Nielsen told lawmakers. “People live in fear, terrified of that which they do not understand. She’s...

    Bills that would have limited how many rounds can be stored in gun magazines and what guns can be sold did not pass in Olympia. Neither bill was approved before Wednesday's 5 p.m. deadline. Lawmakers knew earlier this month the proposed ban on firearms defined as assault weapons did not have the votes to proceed.

    Virginia Democrats mistake their legislative control as a mandate for extreme liberal social re-engineering — and it shows where the rest of the party is headed. For the first time in 26 years, Virginians voted a Democrat majority into both the state’s House and Senate. Four weeks into the General Assembly, the new majority is voting in laws restricting parents’ rights, removing religious protections, and disturbing rights traditional to Virginians.“The aggressive onslaught of hostile legislation is new this year,” said Victoria Cobb, president of the Family Foundation of Virginia. “Virginia has never even had a public policy discussion about forcing...
  • Florida Gun Owners to Law Enforcement: Violate Our Rights & We Will Sue You

    TALLAHASSEE, FL – -( Florida Carry, Inc. has put Florida’s top cops on notice: Stop violating the rights of law-abiding gun owners or you will get sued. In a letter sent to every sheriff and police chief in the state (SEE ATTACHED), Florida Carry notes, “Despite the well-established right, our members have been repeatedly victimized and deprived of their rights by various law enforcement agencies and their respective officers and deputies. Too many individuals in law enforcement throughout the state have harassed, berated, belittled, arrested, and even killed law-abiding citizens going about their personal business, for simply exercising their constitutionally...

    Congratulations, Virginia – you overcame the terrible peril that was patriots rallying in Richmond to peacefully express your disgust with Governor Jolson Klanrobe and his legislative back-up dancers’ attempt to strip you of your rights. You came, you saw, you protested, and then you swept up. But the fight’s not over. It’s just starting. But know this – you will win. Let’s begin with a basic principle: You have no moral obligation to respect or obey unconstitutional actions by a government. None. And when a government acts outside its constitutional limits, you do not merely have the right but the...

    A gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia attracted thousands on Monday and one Western New Yorker stood out among the rest. Brandon Lewis was a protester at the rally who is getting a lot of attention from national media outlets because of the gun he was carrying. In many photos Lewis is pictured carrying a Barrett M82A1 rifle, which is a semi-automatic rifle that is used by the U.S. military. Lewis told 2 On Your Side that the rifle was meant to send a message. "The citizens are the government and we are in control not the other way around,"...

    World War III was a nothingburger. Thus far, Civil War II is similarly underwhelming. Call it the Rubber-Glue Effect. Everything the left has tried lately has ultimately boomeranged and stuck to them in comical fashion. Insults and insinuations returning to visit harm on the heads of the accusers. In Richmond, the “violent white supremacists” even picked up their own garbage. For a white supremacy march, they were awfully diverse. What do you call it when whites, blacks, gays, straights, Latinos, etc.–in other words, Americans–turn up at the alleged “celebration of hate”? A: you call it what it is, a rally...
  • VA Democrats' Anti-Gun Agenda Caused State Gun Sales to Hit Second-Highest Monthly Total on Record

    We keep saying this: elections have consequences. In Virginia, it’s the Republicans that are at the receiving end of this lesson. Five years ago, the state GOP controlled a supermajority in the House of Delegates. Now, it has a Democratic majority. The Virginia State Senate is now Democratic-controlled. The governorship is under a Democratic administration. For the first time in two decades, there is a unified Democratic government in Richmond—and they’re coming after the firearms of law-abiding citizens. There is no goodwill here. Expanded background checks are being pushed to get a database going for eventual confiscation. Heck, you even...

    """I’m in Richmond and have just received information from a very reliable source concerning Monday’s rally against the legislature’s gun grabs. Antifa have rented seven buses to bring in their thugs to cause trouble. The report says they will be wearing MAGA hats and wearing NRA garb. They will pretend to be pro gun people. Meanwhile others posing as democrats holding anti gun signs will stand on the side. The Antifa thugs, pretending to be pro gun , will attack the sign holders. Making it look like the pro gun people have started violence. This is the plan. If you...

    When Democrats took the majority in Virginia the last election, they quickly put on the table a package of radical laws that were set to limit Virginians’ Second Amendment rights, including closing down every shooting range not owned by the government, hindering their ability to form militias, severely limiting gun sale transfers, as well as fresh registration bills. Within the first 48 hours of taking over the Virginia legislature in 2020, Democrats passed their first of many proposed gun laws and banned the carry of firearms on the property of the state capitol and other government offices. The people of...

    I’m not sure if this is more hilarious or serious. Probably both. But with all the news coming out of Virginia these days regarding pushback against new gun control laws, their neighbors in West Virginia have put forth an offer. Tired of the government in Richmond taxing the heck out of you and trying to infringe upon your Second Amendment rights? Perhaps you should consider switching over and becoming part of our state. Come on in… the water’s fine!And it’s more than just a casual discussion. The state government in Charleston has already drawn up a bill preparing to...

    CBS Denver ^ | 01 12 2020 | Rick Sallinger
    For the first time, a judge has denied a request to take away a man’s guns under Colorado’s new red flag law. A Limon woman claimed a man who she had a relationship with threatened her with a gun and filed the request. Since the law took effect, the red flag law has had many gun owners seeing red. At least four requests have been filed since the first of 2020; CBS4 is aware of them being filed in Denver, in Larimer County and this one — in Lincoln County. Many gun owners, like Jak Gruenberg, despise it. “Red flag...

    WAPO ^ | Jan. 8, 2020 | Mary B. McCord
    Overblown alarm over reasonable gun-control laws proposed in statehouses across the country has led to a movement by various local governments declaring themselves Second Amendment “sanctuaries” — vowing to establish local jurisdictions where state gun laws that they view as unconstitutional will not be enforced. These resolutions, to the extent they conflict with state law, lack legal effect: In Tazewell County, Va., for example, the “Sanctuary Resolution” approved by the board of supervisors purports to prohibit any county employee from enforcing, and any county funds from being used for the enforcement of, new state gun laws the county deems unconstitutional....

    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.

    The Federalist ^ | December 31, 2019 | Ryan Moore
    Instances of defensive gun use save lives every day, but the stories get very little news coverage and the negative gun use instances are often covered by the national news media for days on end. As during a Texas church shooting on Sunday, guns save lives, so supporting the Second Amendment is pro-life. Abortion, on the other hand, takes a life every single time. Studies on incidents of defensive gun use range anywhere from an absurdly low 55,000 to a high of 4.7 million per year. The most commonly cited and widely accepted is the 1995 study by Gary Kleck...

    The House Republican Caucus has expelled Matt Shea after an investigation revealed that he "participated in an act of domestic terrorism against the United States." Shea represents Washington’s 4th District, which encapsulates the area surrounding Spokane Valley. He has since taken to social media to call the investigation a "sham." On Facebook he wrote: "Like we are seeing with our President this is a sham investigation meant to silence those of us who stand up against attempts to disarm and destroy our great country. I will not back down, I will not give in, I will not resign. Stand strong...

    Culpepper County, VA — It looks like what Virginia gun owners needed was a wake up call. Or more accurately, a wake up slap in the face. Ever since Bloomberg bought himself a blue Virginia and stacked it with eager anti-gun legislators, we’ve told you how the state is on fire with pro-gun rights sentiment. County after county has joined the Second Amendment Sanctuary list, totaling 42 counties in less than six weeks. Add one more sheriff to the list of Second Amendment heroes. Sheriff Scott Jenkins of Culpepper County, VA made a post on his official county Facebook page...

    Destroying the lie from the national socialist left that ‘no one is talking about gun confiscation’.Joy Behar, Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rouke and Representative Eric ‘nukem’ Swawell (D-CA) epitomise the mendacity of the left in demanding gun confiscation while denying that they are demanding gun confiscation. Like many others of the national socialist left, they want to push for their final solution to the liberty problem while still pretending to be ‘liberal’, using all manner of soft sounding synonyms for the taking of the people’s property. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) loves to talk on this subject, but according to him, anyone...
