Virginia Democrats Double Down on Failed Gun Control Plans

January 1, 2020

Democrats won the recent elections in Virginia. They have not taken office yet, but they announced their legislative plans. I guess they have to do that since out-of-state special interests funded so many of their campaigns and the newly-minted legislators have to quickly prove their fealty. Their chief target has been the honest gun owners of Virginia. This has been amazing to watch.

Some of the first announcements were plans to outlaw “assault weapons”. “Assault weapon” is a well-tested catch phrase that means any gun that looks scary to potential voters. The color black is scary. Something that looks like it came out of a video game is scary. Paint the same gun pink and put a wood stock on it, and it is suddenly acceptable. The politicians don’t have to fool all the people all the time with their mislabeled claims. Democrat politicians only have to fool the press, and that is remarkably easy to do. The press never bothers to check if previous “assault weapon” bans actually lowered the crime rate. To the surprise of the Democrat politicians and their donors, the gun owners in Virginia were not buying the media spin.

The official evil black rifle is the AR-15. Lost in the headlines is the fact that the AR was developed 63 years ago. It was designed as an easy to shoot firearm that is adjustable to fit people of varying stature. It shoots one bullet each time the trigger is pressed, a suddenly novel feature that is over 130 years old. The AR is significantly lighter in weight, and easier shooting, than a main battle rifle. Despite the media hysterics, in some states, the AR was not allowed for deer hunting because it was initially considered an underpowered cartridge.

We’re not talking about a fringe segment of the firearms market. The AR and its clones are the most popular and widely sold long-guns in the US. After the lightweight .22s, the AR is often the gateway rifle for new shooters. The AR has also been called a girl’s gun, and that may be the real reason it is vilified by Virginia Democrats.

As we saw in other states, the Virginia Democrats first demanded confiscation of existing guns. When the public defiantly answered with, “Come and take them,” the Virginia Democrats proposed to outlaw the sales of ARs while demanding the registration of existing guns. In their dictatorial exuberance, the gun-banning Democrats also said they’d scoop up some shotguns and rifles that weren’t ARs.

What strikes me as strange is that the Democrats don’t want to ban all the ARs. These guns are called weapons of war when the Democrats want to disarm civilians. The same hardware is called “a patrol rifle” or a “personal defense weapon” if the police or government agents carry them. What the Democrats are saying with their wordplay is that select government employees can be armed, but the rest of us must be helpless. Recent events showed us the tragic results.

Democrats are not against guns. They are only against us having them.

Time and again we’re told that the police will protect us, so it is ok if we’re disarmed at church, at school, or in some contrived “gun free zone”. Note that the people making these rules don’t have to follow them. The elites have their own security service at the capital, and even at church. Government officials get a security team, but you don’t.

The past Republican State Attorney General in Virginia said that self defense was sufficient cause to carry a concealed firearm in church. I expect the present Democrat State Attorney General in Virginia to reverse that ruling. The Democrat montra is that the more of us are defenseless, the safer we will be. Ask yourself this question; if we’re so safe, then why do the Democrat Brahmins need a security detail everywhere they go?

Democrats often restrict the right of citizens to go armed in public. When that happens, judges and elite politicians will receive carry permits, while you are denied them. You are also disarmed in many “gun-free zones” where they may carry. Concealed carry laws are for the little people.

98% of mass murders are in so called “gun free zones”,
yet Democrat politicians in Virginia propose to disarmed more victims
in the name of public safety.

I expect the cost of concealed carry permits to rise now that Democrats are in power. The excuse will be the cost of state regulation. In fact, the armed citizen is the most economically efficient form of crime control. What other states can do for a few dollars, the State of Virginia will soon charge much more.

Armed civilians stopped a church shooting in six seconds.
Disarmed military personnel were attacked in a “gun-free zone” for over 50 minutes.
Which is safer?

Taking a page from Alinsky, any feature of a firearm can be isolated, demonized, and outlawed. For example, semi-automatic firearms shoot too fast. Magazines carry too many cartridges. Guns anywhere are invariably too close to schools and playgrounds. The universal exception is when the same firearm is issued to a law enforcement officer. What the media then ignores is that licensed concealed carry holders are more law abiding and more accurate than cops. The takeaway is that facts don’t matter when you’re selling propaganda.

I have a simple test for gun-control proposals. Call me once you’ve imposed those same regulations on the police and security services protecting the capital and county buildings. Democrats are not hypocrites who break the rules. Virginia Democrats are supremacists who think they are above the rules that apply to the rest of us. We won’t change their minds, but we can reveal their character.

When it comes to gun control, all I ask is that Democrat politicians go first. I’ll watch from here and see how it works for you.. and I’ll keep my guns.

I gave you 900 words. Please share them with a friend. RM

    1st item: The AR in .223/5.56mm is allowed for hunting in a majority of states. Ar platform rifles are the most popular hunting rifle in the US today. The AR platform is available in a variety of calibers which some may feel are more suitable for big game than the .223/5.56mm. However, the .223/5.56mm cartridge is also used in other action types to take big game, as well as being used in the AR platform.

    The democrat party does not care about statistics, this is not about “PUBLIC SAFETY”. This is about their vision for the future, where governments structure, surveil, manage, and enforce upon an unarmed citizenry. The Google “SOCIAL CREDIT SYSTEM”, Designed for use HERE, is now up-and-running in Communist China, being tested, working the “bugs” out, FOR IMPLEMENTATION HERE. They can not CONTROL a citizenry that, by sheer numbers, OUTGUNS THEM.
    Virginia democrats have a tried and true, federal district court approved blueprint, that they will pass into law soon.
    Complete now with “grandfather” REGISTRATION to keep your “assault weapon”.
    (Can’t confiscate without a (registration) CONFISCATION LIST!)
    Of course if they don’t jump to CONFISCATION, facilitated by the “list” after the next “best opportunity” mass shooting . . . the Second Amendment STILL SUNSETS on the next generation! . . . It is written into the law, UPON YOUR DEATH – TURN IN THAT “GRANDFATHER” REGISTERED GUN IN TO THE STATE! (Or dispose of it out of the jurisdiction) YOUR KIDS DO NOT TAKE OWNERSHIP!
    I didn’t read that about the VA law – THAT is the NY SAFE Act.
    I’m confident the VA law is the same.
    If subversive VA democrat “traitors to the Constitution” are smart, they added in some items to close some of the NY SAFE Act loopholes.
    They probably EXPECT less of a compliance rate than NY, but they don’t really care, getting it on the books starts the timer on the sunset of the Second Amendment – and one thing for sure, the NEXT generation will care LESS than THIS generation. They have been programmed and indoctrinated to be progressive “global citizens”. COPS have guns.
    Did you hear MICHAEL BLOOMBERG when questioned about the recent Texas Church shooting?
    “I don’t know the details, but WE DON’T WANT CITIZENS TAKING THE LAW INTO THEIR OWN HANDS!” (Could you believe that? Someone is killing you – DON’T TAKE THE LAW INTO YOUR OWN HANDS!)
    “It’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot. You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”
    To be a good “average citizen” – your obligation is to DIE! (THANKS MIKE! (gfy))
    The government’s concern is not about public safety – the government’s concern is about PUBLIC CONTROL.
    If they do not – the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the United States of America ARE DONE!
    It is why the democrat party is in panic about President TRUMP – Gorsuch & Kavanaugh – Clinton /Obama nominees would’ve “sealed the deal” in “transforming” the US Constitution / Bill of Rights into a meaningless piece of paper with absolutely NO restraint on the progressive socialist vision.
    And it will be easy, 5G appliances, automobiles, and smartphones will ALL have sound/voice and video monitoring capabilities that will have artificial intelligence monitors that will be VERY efficient at generating “RED FLAGS”.
    Watch what you do – watch what you say – watch what you think.
    For now, in Virginia, just register your “assault weapons”.
    (So the democrat party can keep you safe.)
