And it’s not like those red parts of Virginia haven’t seen this coming: According to the Washington Examiner, over 75 counties have declared themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries,” meaning law enforcement there won’t enforce state laws deemed to violate the Second Amendment.
Well, that puts everyone at quite a loggerheads, doesn’t it? This is something that could be handled delicately by the state government in Richmond; it could try to figure out how to enforce laws that aren’t universally popular in a state where there’s clearly a wide gulf when it comes to people’s opinions on guns.
Or, you know, they could have state officials threaten to bring out the National Guard; that too.
In statements to the Examiner that might have come out better if they had any filter between their brain and mouth, two state Democrats basically said, “Look at us: we’re the captains now.”The first thing these fascists need to realize is that trying to use the Virginia National Guard to enforce their unconsitutional gun-grab is like trying to use deer hunters to enforce illegal anti-hunting laws.
Just who the hell do they think owns guns in Virginia? Where the hell do those people live? Do they really think that they'll be able to whistle up a bunch of goose-stepping thugs from the hinterlands of Prince George County to march down I-95 and enforce their will? "Oh, look! Richmond is a big city! They've got National Guard centers all over, I bet they'll be FULL of people who want to do our bidding!" Except for the fact that the people who fill those National Guard centers in Richmond on drill weekend don't all come from Richmond, they come from the counties and rural areas around Richmond. And while Richmond might be Proggie central for Virginia, it's surrounded by counties where you couldn't find a Hillary Clinton sign in 2016. You really think Jim from Powhatan is going to go door to door on the Governor's gun-grabbing plan? You think he's going to go arrest the sheriff of Powhatan, when he voted for the guy?
Things are going to get real interesting here in the next few years as the Democrats continue to lose their minds.
