2020 Virginia General Assembly Bills pertaining to "Weapons" and the "Paramilitary Activities Penalty" Bill
Virginia's Legislative Information System ^ | January 04, 2020 | Unattributed

Posted on 01/04/2020 1:43:41 PM PST by Perseverando

I just did a search on the "Virginia's Legislative Information System," website and listed under the Bill Subject Index, these are the "Weapons" related active Bills for 2020 (so far):

2020 SESSION
Weapons

HB 72 Children; allowing access to firearms by children. recklessly leaving loaded, unsecured firearm.
HB 78 Firearms; purchase, possession, and transporting following certain convictions.
HB 161 Carrying a concealed handgun; permit not required.
HB 162 Firearm-free zones designated by the Commonwealth or a locality; waiver of sovereign immunity.
HB 224 Carrying a concealed handgun; permit not required.
SB 13 Capitol Square; possessing or transporting a weapon within Square, penalty.
SB 14 Trigger activators; prohibition, penalty.
SB 15 Weapons; carrying into building owned or leased by the Commonwealth, penalty.
SB 16 Assault firearms and certain firearm magazines; prohibiting sale, transport, etc., penalties.

And then there's another high profile 2020 Bill, "Paramilitary Activities; Penalty," that 2nd Amendment defenders are very concerned about:

SB 64 Paramilitary activities; penalty.

Disclaimer: I currently have no affiliation with VCDL, but I do have a lot of VCDL and 2nd Amendment friends still in the Old Dominion.

With the regard to the 2nd Amendment and gun rights, I fear that as Virginia goes, so goes America.

2020, in so many ways, is going to be a make it or break it year. It's an incredibly important time with the 2020 election for President in just a matter of months. And let's face it, there are lot of very prominent demoKKKrats in the Swamp who have no intentions of going to prison. They have demonstrated that over and over again in the past 3 years with "Russian Collusion," and their partisan Impeachment effort. At every turn they have attempted to undermine the legitimacy of the Trump Administration, his programs and policies. They have no intention of slowing down now when there's hope of taking back the Presidency, DOJ, FBI, CIA, etc. And did I mention that they hate America and its peasantry class, commonly called citizens.

Make no mistake, the demoKKKrat globalists plan on winning the Presidential election by hook or by crook, as the saying goes.

Trying times? Yes, here's something that a friend shared with me awhile back during some very "trying times. I think it may be of help and comfort to some during future "trying times." It has certainly seen me through some difficult days and nights.

BTW, Remember the story of David and Goliath?

Psalm 27, of David- New International Version (NIV)

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked advance against me
to devour[a] me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
spouting malicious accusations.
13 I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.

Footnotes:
a. Psalm 27:2 Or slander

Ok, if you're going to be quoting scripture, please don't use the atrocious NIV. It is by far the worst translation available. No offense, but a word for word translation versus dynamic equivalence wins out every time.

The only version, therefore, to use is the Authorized King James, in which case, your reading would look like this:

The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation

Psalm 27:1, "A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" 

Psalm 27:2, "When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell." 

Psalm 27:3, "Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident." 

Psalm 27:4, "One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple." 

Psalm 27:5, "For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock." 

Psalm 27:6, "And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD."

Psalm 27:7, "Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me."

Psalm 27:8, "When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek." 

Psalm 27:9, "Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation." 

Psalm 27:10, "When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up." 

Psalm 27:11, "Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies." 

Psalm 27:12, "Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty." 

Psalm 27:13, "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living." 

Psalm 27:14, "Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD." 

Again, no offense, but whenever I see the NIV used I see another person who is not informed about the atrocities of modern biblical translations.

Excellent that so many turned-out. There are many up here in PA who will drive down to support VA’s 2nd Amendment and Constitution, when it happens.

Thou hast a point. If the Authorized KJV was good enough for the Israelites, the prophets, Jesus and his disciples it’s good enough for me. /sarc

I wonder, I’ve seen a lot of 4th of July parades with VFW / American legion members shouldering M1s.

Does the law apply to them

Here are a couple of Federal laws that the Virginia Legislature and Governor are about to break'

USC Title 18 Section 242

Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both;  and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both;  and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

And

TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 241

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same;... They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
