  1. Just think, if they are willing to do this to law enforcement officers in Virginia, what do you think they will be willing to do to you. If you live in Virginia and you support the Second Amendment, just remember that these Sheriffs came out to support you when you needed it. Pay them back by showing up at the ballot box and vote these people out. In the video, you’ll learn about a prefiled bill that threatens to remove the pensions of law enforcement officers who publicly state or intentionally fail to enforce the unconstitutional gun laws. It also mentions retraining for officers as well as an oath to the commonwealth. Is an oath to uphold the Constitution not good enough? Is the oath to the commonwealth superior to an oath to the Constitution? Hopefully we’ll get some answers on this in the months to come. In another disgusting act today, we learned that apparently Virginia Democrats denied law enforcement officers a 3% pay raise specifically because they opposed unconstitutional gun laws. If you don’t get out and vote in the next election in 2021 then this is on you. No more excuses; we have to get these people out. Stand up for your law enforcement and vote! Article online here.
  2. The Virginia House of Delegates passed a package of gun control proposals Tuesday on a near party line vote. The proposal passed the House 51-48, with all Republicans, and several Democrats voting against the bill. The legislation includes a ban on the sale of several firearms defined as “assault weapons,” including the popular AR-15. (RELATED: The Virginia Legislature Is Pondering Confiscation. These Sanctuary Counties Are Ready To Fight Back) Virginia residents who currently own these types of firearms will not be forced to participate in a mandatory buyback program as had initially been considered by state Democrats. However, the bill gives the state government the authority to confiscate certain types of magazines that are considered “high capacity.” (RELATED: Here Are The Good Guys With Guns The Media Doesn’t Want You To Know About) This is the second gun control package approved by the House in recent weeks. The legislature passed legislation late last month that included universal background checks, red flag laws, and a law limiting citizens of the Commonwealth to one firearm purchase a month. Both bills now head to the state senate, where Democrats hold a narrow 21-19 majority. Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has spoken out in support of both bills, and has made gun control a top priority for his remaining two years in office. Gun control initiatives have been met with intense backlash in the Commonwealth, with 91 of the state’s 95 counties having declared themselves sanctuaries for the Second Amendment. A Second Amendment rally in the state’s capital of Richmond drew roughly 22,000 attendees. Article online here.
  3. Gun rights protestors gather under the Virginia State Capitol for a rally in support of Second Amendment rights on January 20, 2020, in Richmond, Va. A series of new gun control bills in Virginia cleared key votes on Thursday, including expanded background checks and “red flag” protective orders, among other measures. In total, seven new gun control bills passed in the Virginia House of Delegates, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Virginia Senate has passed their own versions of several of those same bills and the two chambers are expected to reconcile the individual differences of the bills before sending them to Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam to sign and enact. Democratic lawmakers, exercising their newly won legislative majorities, pushed through all seven measures in under 90 minutes. The votes came just over a week after an estimated 22,000 gun rights activists protested in Richmond in opposition to the newly proposed gun laws. According to the Washington Post, lawmakers voted on party lines to pass measures that would: Extend background checks to currently exempted private gun sales. Require gun owners to report the loss of a firearm within 24 hours. Create an extreme risk protective order, also known as a “red flag” order, which allows law enforcement to temporarily seize firearms from otherwise lawful owners accused of presenting a risk of harm to themselves or others. Return to a pre-2012 policy, limiting the number of handguns allowed for an individual to purchase to one per month. Increase the restrictions barring a person to access a firearm while subject to a protective order. Extend the power to local governments to create additional gun control measures on the community level. Make it a felony to leave a firearm accessible to anyone under the age of 18, up from the current age of 14. Del. Todd Gilbert (R-Shenandoah) argued that the new age restrictions on firearms access would punish gun owners who allow their children to use their firearms for hunting purposes. The measure allowing localities to pass their own firearms legislation reportedly caused some confusion as well, as Del. Nick Rush (R-Montgomery) pointed out that many localities have actually adopted second amendment “sanctuary” resolutions urging local law enforcement not to enforce new gun control measures. A full 91 of Virginia’s 95 counties have adopted such sanctuary measures. The bill’s sponsor, Del. Marcia S. “Cia” Price (D-Newport News), argued that the measure is meant to permit communities to add their own gun control measures in addition to ones passed at the state level, but that they may also choose not to add their own community-level measures. Other proposed gun control measures favored by Northam have not yet been able to proceed through the legislature as quickly. A proposed “assault weapons” ban has seen delays in both the Virginia House and the Senate, where lawmakers have expressed a lack of clarity over how to define “assault weapons” and how to implement such a ban. The talk of an “assault weapons” ban has caused much anxiety throughout the state, feeding into the sanctuary movement, and seeing some lawmakers suggest Northam should call on the National Guard to carry out the law’s enforcement.

  4. Tucker Carlson Tonight This morning, thousands of Virginians marched peacefully at the state Capitol to protest an attack on their gun rights. Under some circumstances, a demonstration to protect the Constitution would be considered virtuous. “Civil disobedience,” they often tell us. “It’s what democracy’s supposed to look like.” But needless to say, they don’t really mean it. Instead of congratulating the protesters, the left suggested they were engaged in a form of terrorism.
  5. Gun-rights supporters demonstrate in front of state Capitol in Richmond, Va., Monday morning Jan. 20, 2020. Gun-rights activists and other groups are descending on Virginia’s capital city of Richmond to protest plans by the state’s Democratic leadership to pass gun-control . By - Associated Press - Updated: 4:49 p.m. on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 RICHMOND, Va. — The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others. The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House. Republicans blasted the bill as an assault on gun rights and civil liberties. Democrats said the bill was a thoughtful measure that would preserve due process while also protecting people against potential gun violence. The bill is one of several gun-control measures the new Democratic majority at the General Assembly is set to pass this year. Also on Tuesday, the Democratic-led House killed several pro-gun measures in a subcommittee meeting. Those GOP-backed measures included a bill to allow people to carry concealed handguns without a permit and to repeal a limit on carrying weapons in churches and other places of worship. Tuesday’s legislative action came a day after tens of thousands of gun-rights activists from around the country rallied peacefully at the state Capitol to protest plans by the state’s Democratic leadership to pass gun-control legislation.
  6. As 4 bills progress along party lines in Virginia legislature, 2nd Amendment sanctuary movement gains momentum BY BOWEN XIAO 28 CommentsJanuary 15, 2020 Updated: January 15, 2020 RICHMOND, Va.—Hundreds of Second Amendment advocates converged on Virginia’s state capital on Jan. 13 to oppose a slew of tighter gun control proposals being voted on by newly elected state lawmakers. The long line of Virginia residents—many wearing bright “Guns Save Lives” stickers—showed up before 8 a.m. in a show of support for their constitutional rights that they say are being infringed upon. Some gun control advocates attended as well, holding signs with slogans such as “sensible gun laws equal less gun violence.” The rallying crowds did little to stop four gun control measures from advancing in the state’s Democratic-led General Assembly after approval by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The committee passed legislation for universal background checks, a measure allowing localities to ban weapons from some events and government buildings, a “red flag” bill allowing authorities to temporarily confiscate guns from certain individuals deemed a risk, and a law that limits the purchase of handguns to only one per month. In interviews with The Epoch Times, Second Amendment advocates, including local residents, county sheriffs, gun store owners, and Virginia’s NRA leader, argued that the proposed gun control measures were an overreach that violated residents’ constitutional rights. They said stricter legislation will do nothing to stop criminals from committing crimes and said the focus should be more on mental health.

(Samira Bouaou/The Epoch Times) The Senate Judiciary Committee passed four gun control bills during a hearing at the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond on Jan. 13, 2020. (Samira Bouaou/The Epoch Times) The four bills now advance to the Virginia Senate for further discussion. They would need to be passed by the Senate and the House of Delegates, and be signed by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) to become law. Democrats won control of both chambers of the state legislature in the November 2019 elections and have vowed to enact stronger gun control policies. They believe stricter legislation will help reduce shootings and deaths and would “break the cycle” of gun violence. The committee ended up largely voting along party lines, but not every piece of legislation was approved. One proposed measure (SB-16) that sparked the most controversy—banning the sale and possession of so-called assault weapons—was taken off the table. According to The Associated Press, an estimated 8 million AR-style guns have been sold since their introduction to the public in the 1960s. Matthew Thwing, a 41-year-old small-business owner in Virginia, said he attended the hearing to have his voice heard and to show that he and the other “nearly 1,000” Second Amendment advocates weren’t going to stand for the new agenda pushed by state lawmakers. An additional overflow room had to be opened during the hearing because of the large numbers. “I think that if there’s a mandate in Virginia, it’s that they don’t want gun control. We don’t want gun control,” he told The Epoch Times. “These numbers are tremendous, and you really don’t see that kind of turnout for any kind of political event whatsoever. “It’s woken a sleeping giant, if you will,” Thwing added. Some of the Second Amendment supporters took the day off work to attend, while others drove from hours away.

(Samira Bouaou/The Epoch Times) The number of Second Amendment supporters who showed up wasn’t surprising, Matt Rogers, chief of staff to Sen. David W. Marsden (D-Fairfax), said before the hearing. Marsden represents the 37th District in the state Senate. “There are people here on this side, and on that side,” Rogers told The Epoch Times. “I’m absolutely not surprised, its a democracy. It’s not a problem, and it’s actually exciting, even if people don’t tend to agree with our point of view … this is the right way to address their grievances.” Rogers said they have to “be mindful” of the Second Amendment, but he added that there are things that can be done “within the bounds” of it. Daniel Spiker, state director at the National Rifle Association (NRA), expressed disappointment following the results of the committee hearing. He predicted the fight for Second Amendment rights will be a very long and drawn-out one. “SB-16 being stricken from the record is an indication that the governor and some of the Democrats have seen that they’ve overreached and that these bills have unintended consequences,” he told The Epoch Times. “We’re encouraged by it. But at the end of the day, it’s still multiple levels of new regulation and new laws imposed on law-abiding citizens,” he said. State lawmakers have less than 60 days to get all the bills to become law. Spiker said that the result of the NRA’s rallying call for citizens to flock to the state capitol “far exceeded their expectations of what the turnout was going to be.” “It’s indicative of what this movement is and the enthusiasm we’re seeing at the local level with engaging their board of supervisors, their city councils,” Spiker said. “Our hope was for that enthusiasm to come to Richmond.” Daniel Spiker, state director at NRA, after a hearing where four gun control bills passed the Senate Judiciary Committee at the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond on Jan. 13, 2020. (Samira Bouaou/The Epoch Times) The ‘Second Amendment Sanctuary’ Movement On Jan. 7, the city council in Virginia Beach enacted legislation in a 6 to 4 vote to declare the state’s largest city a “Second Amendment constitutional city.” In that vote, local residents crowded the building to have their voices heard, with an overflow crowd outside watching the proceedings on a TV screen. Officials who have adopted such sanctuary resolutions or amendments generally state that they won’t follow new gun laws they believe are unconstitutional. Local officials who voted for their counties to become Second Amendment sanctuaries told The Epoch Times the measures they passed were largely symbolic and were made to send a message to lawmakers. They said that any state laws enacted would still supersede any local legislation. Following the Senate committee hearing, a county sheriff said he wasn’t surprised by the committee’s action, and that he was disappointed he couldn’t speak for longer. He said the committee had “their minds made up” and “didn’t want to hear any input,” adding that it could affect their seats in the next election. “I thank them for starting down this road for one reason—it’s going to flip Virginia back red in so many ways they don’t expect,” Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins told The Epoch Times. “Elections have consequences.” Jenkins said the strong push for tighter gun control has “awakened a population in the state that has long been quiet.” “And that doesn’t account for the court battles that are coming, because there are plenty of us willing to battle this out in the court the right way, as well,” he added.

(Samira Bouaou/The Epoch Times) Jenkins has gone further than others, saying he would “deputize citizens” as auxiliary deputies, if needed, to protect the constitutional right to bear firearms. In early December, Culpeper County’s Board of Supervisors voted 7 to 0 to affirm itself as a “constitutional county,” prompting a standing ovation by residents who were present for the vote. Northam and other Democratic lawmakers in the state, meanwhile, have credited their focus on gun control for helping them win full control of the General Assembly for the first time in more than two decades, according to The Associated Press. Virginia, especially, has become the center of the gun debate, with 91 of the state’s 95 counties passing some sort of measure affirming their support for Second Amendment rights. A number of municipalities in Virginia have also become sanctuaries. Hundreds of local counties, cities, and towns across America are declaring themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries” or “constitutional counties” as part of an expanding movement over the past few years. In Illinois, at least 70 of the 102 counties in the state have passed some form of sanctuary resolution. Paul Moog, who works with the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a nonprofit grassroots organization whose goal is to advance the rights of Virginians to keep and bear arms, said he was very much in favor of the Second Amendment sanctuary movement. “[We] helped put them in through Orange County,” he said. “I’ve been to several other meetings, and I think it’s a great movement that will help defuse some of the tension.” The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed by Congress on Sept. 25, 1789, and was ratified on Dec. 15, 1791. The text reads that “a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Moog claims that the proposed gun control agenda could cause a bigger fight to break out within the state. “I think that the Democrats are very close to pushing civil war in Virginia,” Moog said. “If you try to turn your opposition into criminals, people have a tendency to want to fight back.” Second Amendment advocates attend a hearing where four gun control bills passed the Senate Judiciary Committee at the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond on Jan. 13, 2020.

(Samira Bouaou/The Epoch Times) The sanctuary movement is helping to take the heat off the anger people are feeling, because it’s making them “feel more secure” according to Moog. “I think we’re in a very touchy situation,” he said. In a sign of tensions boiling over, Marsden last week called Second Amendment supporters “little kids” who should be ignored, according to a news post by the Fairfax County Republican Committee. In an interview with radio station WMAL, co-host Mary Walter read from an email that Marsden had reportedly written to a constituent, where he had said that “too many of your members and other 2A supporters appear to have mental health issues.” Marsden later defended his remarks and cited offensive emails and phone calls he claimed he received from some constituents. In response to the rising number of Second Amendment sanctuaries, a U.S. House Democrat recently floated the idea that Northam could direct the state’s National Guard to help enforce the proposed gun restrictions. Rep. Donald McEachin (D-Va.) made the proposal on Dec. 11, 2019, while also suggesting cutting off state funds to counties that don’t comply with gun control measures that might pass in the state. The Virginia National Guard responded with a string of Twitter posts, in which they said they haven’t received any requests from the governor. “We understand and respect the passion people feel for the U.S. Constitution and 2nd Amendment rights,” Maj. Gen. Timothy P. Williams, the state’s adjutant general, wrote. “We will not speculate about the possible use of the Virginia National Guard.” ‘Innocent Until Proven Guilty’ Miles away from the state capital, a local gun store owner said that the constitution protects the people. “Our constitution protects us … But the people that want control understand that they can’t get control as long as the population can protect themselves,” Tony Martin, the managing partner of a local gun store, said. “That’s the point of the Second Amendment—to be able to serve the people and not be oppressed by the government,” he added. “In Virginia, they want to change it completely.” Red flag laws and other gun control proposals infringe upon the rights of the citizens, Martin said. He said the United States judicial system is based on the principle that everyone is innocent until proven guilty and that, in a court of law, people are entitled to a fair and reasonable opportunity to defend themselves. Martin said that the red flag law approach appears on the surface as if it should make everyone safer, but, on closer examination, exposes serious issues. In particular, it would forgo the “innocent until proven guilty” principle. “If in place, you can lose your rights and you can lose your personal property, based on somebody else’s accusation,” he said. “This is an incremental process. You can’t just come in and say, ‘Oh, here’s the Constitution, let’s shred it and start over.’ They can’t do that, so they are taking baby steps and they have done so for many, many years.” Martin noted that the “firearms industry is the most heavily regulated industry in the world.” He said he also objects to the term “gun violence,” saying that the gun itself isn’t capable of committing any crimes. “It’s an inanimate object,” he said. “Now, could it be used violently by a person? Of course. And for that matter, anything could.” Follow Bowen on Twitter: @BowenXiao_ Dear Readers, Thank you for reading The Epoch Times.

  7. Facebook has flagged this video as "false information" (these so called 'lead-story fact checkers' affiliated with Facebook are worthless and of zero repute), but I assure you every fact within this video is true. The questionable element is concerning the UN advertisement for officers. They did not expressly say the recruitment effort for these officers were to be utilized in Virginia, and the UN has recruited operations officers in New York for years. But in the same token, it has not been revealed where these officers will be deployed, a major requirement for the job is a "fluency in English and French", and though Virginia deployment is assuming, it is still a very real possibility that the UN would welcome if given the chance. Governor Northam did actually threaten citizens with the National Guard to confiscate guns from gun owners. So you can understand this level of concern. Do you remember what happened in Washington in 2008 when Democrats had the majority in Congress and the Presidency? The people were shut out. Everyone was shut out of government legislation except for Democrats that implemented one unconstitutional agenda after another. NOW Democrats have taken Virginia in the same manner (bought and paid for by Michael Bloomberg) and despite the will of the people being made plain by the voted upon overwhelming majority of sanctuary counties and cities that have arisen with the announcement of the proposed new sweeping gun confiscation laws, the GOVERNMENT in classic unconstitutional and tyrannical fashion by Democrats ARE making a move to confiscate all guns. You can call this a conspiracy theory if you wish. If you think that, you probably don't have any guns in your house or have any use for them anyway. But you'll be very upset with how life will turn in America without them around you, possessed by law abiding citizens. It's been proven over and over in all of world history, everytime a society is disarmed, they are no longer free citizens. They become subjects serving under the political elite that rules.
  8. If you or anyone you know is planning to attend the rally in Virginia on 20 January there are several things you must know: Wearing masks is against the law in Virginia. Watch this video: Here is the actual law, and a link to it: https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title18.2/chapter9/section18.2-422/ 18.2-422. Prohibition of wearing of masks in certain places; exceptions. It shall be unlawful for any person over 16 years of age to, with the intent to conceal his identity, wear any mask, hood or other device whereby a substantial portion of the face is hidden or covered so as to conceal the identity of the wearer, to be or appear in any public place, or upon any private property in this Commonwealth without first having obtained from the owner or tenant thereof consent to do so in writing. However, the provisions of this section shall not apply to persons (i) wearing traditional holiday costumes; (ii) engaged in professions, trades, employment or other activities and wearing protective masks which are deemed necessary for the physical safety of the wearer or other persons; (iii) engaged in any bona fide theatrical production or masquerade ball; or (iv) wearing a mask, hood or other device for bona fide medical reasons upon (a) the advice of a licensed physician or osteopath and carrying on his person an affidavit from the physician or osteopath specifying the medical necessity for wearing the device and the date on which the wearing of the device will no longer be necessary and providing a brief description of the device, or (b) the declaration of a disaster or state of emergency by the Governor in response to a public health emergency where the emergency declaration expressly waives this section, defines the mask appropriate for the emergency, and provides for the duration of the waiver. The violation of any provisions of this section is a Class 6 felony. There is another law which makes it a felony to throw something at a car with people in it. This is also discussed in the video above. I believe it would also be very unwise to bring longarms to this rally. Presumably the organizers will be issuing instructions soon. It's clear that this is going to be a large rally, and it may have a significant impact on awakening gun owners around America to what is likely to happen to them soon. This could be a big victory for 2A supporters, and also a jolt for growth of the militia movement. For that reason, the enemies of gun owners will be hoping that there is violence, preferably armed violence, at the rally, which will frighten away potential supporters in the 'middle'. And they might just try to arrange it so that there IS violence. So ... if someone in the crowd of pro-2A protesters throws a half-brick at the police or National Guard, they are almost certainly an Anti-Fa infiltrator. They should be picked up by everyone around them, holding both arms and legs, and passed over the head of the crowd to the police. And if they happen to lose their wallet and ID while being passed overhead to the edge of the crowd, that would be very sad.
  9. FAIRFAX, VA - NOVEMBER 07: Virginia Governor-elect Ralph Northam waves to supporters at an election night rally November 7, 2017 in Fairfax, Virginia. Northam defeated Republican candidate Ed Gillespie. As if Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s wholesale attack on law-abiding gun owners wasn’t enough, the disgraced public official and his Michael Bloomberg-bought allies in the General Assembly now want the state’s hard-working taxpayers to foot the bill for their unconstitutional schemes. The budget bill (HB30) includes an appropriation of a quarter million dollars to carry out a host of gun control measures that Northam and his anti-gun allies hope to enact. The $250,000 is appropriated to the Corrections Special Reserve Fund in order to provide for the “increase in the operating cost of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment” of Northam’s gun control measures. Among the enumerated laws that this allocation is meant to fund is a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, the criminalization of private firearms transfers, and gun confiscation orders issued without due process. Aside from the insult of forcing law-abiding Virginia taxpayers to pay for the diminution of their rights, the gun control allocation is a severe waste of resources. Northam’s Bloomberg-backed gun control measures will not make Virginia safer. In additional to being unconstitutional, a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms will not reduce violent crime. Long guns of any description are rarely used in violent crime. FBI Uniform Crime Reporting data breaks down homicides by weapon type. In 2018, the FBI reported that there were five times as many individuals listed as killed with “knives or cutting instruments,” than with rifles of any kind. The data also showed that rifles were listed as being used in less homicides than “blunt objects (clubs, hammers, etc.)” or “personal weapons (hands, fists, feet, etc.).” A 1997 Department of Justice-funded study of the 1994 federal “assault weapons” ban determined that “At best, the assault weapons ban can have only a limited effect on total gun murders, because the banned weapons and magazines were never involved in more than a modest fraction of all gun murders.” A 2004 follow-up Department of Justice-funded study came to a similar conclusion. The study determined that “AWs [assault weapons] and LCMs [large capacity magazines] were used in only a minority of gun crimes prior to the 1994 federal ban,” “relatively few attacks involve more than 10 shots fired,” and “the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.” So-called “universal” background checks do not stop criminals from obtaining firearms. Background checks don’t stop criminals from stealing firearms, getting them on the black market, or getting them from straw purchasers. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 75 percent of criminals in state and federal state prison who had possessed a firearm during their offense acquired the firearm through theft, “Off the street/underground market,” or “from a family member or friend, or as a gift.” Less than one percent got firearms from dealers or non-dealers at gun shows. ATF has reported, “[t]he most frequent type of trafficking channel identified in ATF investigations is straw purchasing from federally licensed firearms dealers.” This year, researchers at the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the UC Davis School of Medicine found that comprehensive background checks and prohibitions based on violent misdemeanors “were not associated with changes in firearm suicide or homicide.” Aside from enabling the unacceptable deprivation of constitutional rights without due process, an Extreme Risk Protection Order (Red Flag) law is unnecessary in Virginia because the state already has strong and effective civil commitment laws. Under Virginia law, a law enforcement officer may take an individual into emergency custody for a mental health evaluation without prior court approval. A person detained in this manner is then evaluated to determine whether they meet the criteria for a temporary detention. A person that was subject to a temporary detention order and subsequently agreed to voluntary admission to a mental health facility is prohibited from possessing firearms until their rights are restored by a court. Tax-paying Virginians should not have to foot the bill for Northam and Bloomberg’s radical attack on their fundamental rights.
