    Patrik Mathews, formerly with the Canadian Forces, was arrested by the FBI on gun charges. Mathews, along with two other men are allegedly connected to a neo-Nazi gang. The men allegedly planned to attack a Virginia gun rally scheduled for next week. The charges against Mathews include the transporting of a firearm and ammunition with intent to commit a felony and breaking immigration laws. Mathews was a former reservist in the Canadian Army who officials claim illegally entered the United States. The CBC reported that while in the force, Mathews worked as a combat engineer and had basic explosives training...

    There are strategic reasons why the Govenor of VA wants to start the ball rolling with the destruction of the 2nd ammendment. Whatever he is allowed to get away with will then be forced up on one state after another until we are all defenseless. President Trump can't intervene in VA's abuses of their citizens. That means it's up to We The people to raise our voices.It's time to write, email, call, and protest in order to stand with Virginians because, truly, what they do to Virginians they will soon do to us.Politicians use a rule of thumb; they consider...

    The Democrats must know that Trump is going to walk away with this election... so they need another fake narrative that they can play over and over right up till voters go to the polls. They would also love a reason to do another round of mass deplatformings. The last time they did this it was after an event in Charlottesville, Virginia. This latest pro 2A Virginia thing scheduled for Jan 20 is shaping up to be used to create another false event to give them the reasons they need to do it all over again.
  • Why This Antifa Group Is Siding With Thousands of Pro-Gun Conservatives In Virginia

    A huge rally against gun control is shaping up to be a bizarre meeting of the minds. When gun lovers rally in front of the Virginia Capitol in Richmond next week, the local chapter of antifa will be there too. But their members won’t be wearing all black, and they don’t plan to douse right-wingers in milkshakes or Silly String.Instead, local antifa will join thousands of conservatives who are expected to descend on Richmond that day in protesting pending gun-control legislation introduced by Democratic lawmakers.SNIP“I think it’s been pretty important for us to focus on the fact that gun control...

    Welcome to the weekend. I come here humbled by the fact that I have been in error and have made mistakes. I am less than perfect, I am less than a Deity. My background is in religious conservatism praying a prayer of "salvation" saying words I had yet to comprehend when I was 13, coming out of being an Anti-Semite which is a hot topic today. A friend of mine approached me last week noting efforts to combat Anti-Semitism in the community and my libertarian radar is up sensing the endgame will be less freedom in this country.

    Our second amendment isn't under attack. Our state [Virginia] may well be under attack, though, if violent mobs succeed in assembling in Richmond Monday. A normal president would urge calm and offer assistance. But that is the way of a president, not of a demagogue.

    A year and a half into Donald Trumps presidency, Henry Kissinger set out a theory. I think Trump may be one of those figures in history who appears from time to time to mark the end of an era and to force it to give up its old pretences, he told the Financial Times. It doesnt necessarily mean that he knows this, or that he is considering any great alternative. It could just be an accident. A term has been coined to describe this notion: Ryan Evans of War on the Rocks calls them Trumportunities. It is the idea that,...

    Way back in 2015, when the rumors began to circulate about Donald Trump running for president, rumors we had heard for decades, I was shocked at how many smart people those snobs I enjoy heckling as #GOPSmartSet underestimated The Donald. Shrugging off the idea Trump would actually run was fair enough. Like I said, hed been flirting with the idea for decades. Even I would have bet it was a publicity stunt. No, what surprised me was how #GOPSmartSet and the elite media laughed off Trump as a clown, a huckster, a carnival barker, and bankrupt loser. That,...

    On January 17, 2020, President Donald Trump pointed to the gun control situation in Virginia, noting that it proves once more the Democrats “will take your guns” if voted into office. He made this point amid the all-out war on guns by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and the newly elected Democrat majority in the state legislature. Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 17, 2020...

    West Virginia has a strong preemption statute to ensure the state has reasonably uniform laws about the carry and use of firearms by individuals, throughout the state. It is 8-12-5a: Limitations upon municipalities' power to restrict the purchase, possession, transfer, ownership, carrying, transport, sale and storage of certain weapons and ammunition.8-12-5a does a pretty good job of limiting the power of local governments to infringe on the right to keep and bear firearms. But the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution is not limited to firearms. As affirmed in the Heller decision, the Second Amendment covers all bearable arms....

    President Trump trashed 2020 Democrat Mike Bloomberg, calling the septuagenarian a "terrible speaker" and mocking the billionaire's height at 5 feet, 8 inches. "Mini Mike Bloomberg doesnt get on the Democrat Debate Stage because he doesnt want to - he is a terrible debater and speaker," tweeted Trump on Friday. "If he did, he would go down in the polls even more (if that is possible!)." The president further slammed Bloomberg in a follow-up tweet soon after, saying, "Mini Mike Bloomberg ads are purposely wrong - A vanity project for him to get into the game. Nobody in many years...

    The Senate overwhelmingly passed President Trump's proposed replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on Thursday, sending the deal to the presidents desk for his approval. Passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) represents a rare moment of bipartisanship in a bitterly divided Congress. The deal cleared the Senate by a vote of 89 to 10 on Thursday, close to a month after passing the House by a vote of 385-41. Republicans were eager to help Trump accomplish a major pillar of his economic agenda despite their preferences for a deal with looser restrictions. Democrats, who broadly shared Trumps...

    In response to anti-Second Amendment measures, that are increasingly likely to be passed by the democrat led Legislature in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell is pretty sure he will call for civil disobedience if said legislation is passed and signed by the governor. Mr. Falwell has served as President of Liberty University since 2007, succeeding to the Presidency after the passing of his father, Jerry Falwell, Sr. President Falwells comments are welcome by many in the Christian and Conservative communities and may answer the larger question of when individuals on the political center and right will...
  • New York Bill Requires Mental Health Evaluation to Buy Firearms

    Legislation pre-filed in New York by State Senator James Sanders (D-10th Senate District) will require anyone wishing to purchase a firearm to first pass a mental health evaluation. Senate Bill 7065 has been referred to the New York Senate Consumer Protection Committee where it awaits a hearing.Current New York law requires the use of a licensed firearms dealer and passage of a federal background (NICS) check to transfer any firearm. SB 7065 would require the mental health check prior to initiating the background check. The implementation of a mental health evaluation for firearm transfers constitutes unprecedented government regulation and overreach....

Two of the men, one a former Canadian Army reservist in the U.S. illegally, face charges including transporting a firearm and ammunition with intent to commit a felony, according to the U.S. attorneys office in Maryland. One was also charged with transporting a machine gun, and the third man was charged with transporting and harboring an illegal alien. Online court records didnt list attorneys...

    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...

    Fearing a repeat of the deadly march by white nationalists in Charlottesville in 2017, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday declared a state of emergency and temporarily banned people from carrying guns and other weapons on the grounds of the state Capitol, where thousands of gun rights activists are expected to rally next week against stricter gun control laws. Northam said he made the call after hearing "credible intelligence" from law enforcement that armed militias and hate groups, some from outside Virginia, planned to disrupt the event. He said the threats of violence, picked up on the internet and on...

    Twelve years after the Supreme Court ruled that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right "unconnected with service in a militia," the Second Amendment is in worse shape than ever. New York; California; Massachusetts; Connecticut; and Washington, D.C., with a combined population of 70 million, have outlawed the sale of most semi-automatic rifles and all gun magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds to the public. Colorado, New Jersey, Vermont, Maryland, and Hawaii also have restrictions on magazine capacity. Seventeen states have so-called "red flag" laws, allowing the summary confiscation of a person's firearms on...
