In the same interview in which he made vile remarks about murdering infants after they are born as a form of abortion, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam attempted to change the subject by suggesting the government turn churches into gun-free zones.
Northam went viral on Wednesday after endorsing murdering infants during a conversation about abortion. The governor suggested that, if a new mother is still unsure whether she wants to have a child moments after giving birth, the child should be “kept comfortable” while the mother and her doctor determine whether to end its life.
Big League Politics has video of the full, horrifying statement. Fortunately, after a massive nationwide backlash, Virginia lawmakers made it clear that the bill would never be voted on, or even leave its subcommittee.
Perhaps overshadowed by the bombshell endorsement of infanticide, most of the media missed Northam’s suggestion that churches should be made gun-free zones, taking swipes at Americans’ First and Second Amendment rights.
Fortunately, the governor summarized his thoughts on Twitter.
I don’t think firearms are needed in churches. Let’s have a conversation on gun safety.

Public records indicate Northam received nearly $1.5 million from Everytown For Gun Safety, a well funded anti-Second Amendment group founded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
This push to deprive Americans of the ability to protect themselves using their Second Amendment rights while in places of worship comes after at a time fraught with violence and threats against churches in America and around the world. In October of last year the FBI began investigating after a Seattle church was attacked with molotov cocktails, and the tragic 2017 shooting at a Texas church that left 26 dead before an armed citizen intervened and ended the killing spree is still fresh in the minds of many.
Just this week, terrorist group ISIS took responsibility for the bombing of a cathedral in the Philippines.
Apparently clueless to the massive public relations nightmare his statements created, Northam attempted to end the controversy surrounding his infanticide endorsement by tweeting that he has “devoted his life to caring for children” and condemning those criticizing him. He has yet to clarify his anti-Second Amendment statement.
I have devoted my life to caring for children and any insinuation otherwise is shameful and disgusting.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
