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.

Virginia Assault Weapons Ban Fails In House of Delegates
Northam’s gun grab appears to have failed after stalling in the Virginia House of Delegates.
Democrat-sponsored gun control and magazine confiscation legislation appears to have failed in the Virginia House of Delegates on Monday, after legislators voted not to take up the bill in committee.
Moderate Democrats proved instrumental in defeating the gun grab bill, setting back a comprehensive gun control program pushed by Governor Ralph Northam and progressives in the state. Virginians appear secure in their Second Amendment rights, at least for now.
One anti-gun delegate pushing for the legislation, Mark Levine, could be seen with a stone-faced expression as it became clear that his gun grab bill would fail. Second Amendment supporters celebrated with glee as the house clerk announced HB961 wouldn’t advance in the chamber.
Cheers erupted when the Virginia Senate Judiciary Committee voted to not move forward on HB961, the the "assault weapons" ban and magazine confiscation bill, for the year.@DelegateMark, who had been pushing for the bill, has a priceless reaction. pic.twitter.com/rvvF8JiWcO

HB961 would’ve banned the sale of “assault weapons” in the commonwealth and would’ve instituted confiscation policies for standard-capacity thirty round magazines.
The activism of Second Amendment supporters in Virginia appears to have been instrumental in blocking the comprehensive gun control push, which began around the start of the year with controversial Governor Ralph Northam’s support.
A massive rally held at the state capital appears to have dampened the enthusiasm of some state legislators for the gun control program. Also, an abundance of conservative Virginia counties declared their intention to ignore anti-Second Amendment mandates from the state capital, making it clear that their constitutional rights were not to be tossed aside by metropolitan progressives.
Democrats were forced to back off from an even more aggressive Beto O’Rourke style gun confiscation proposal, in which owners of commonly owned rifles would have no choice but to surrender them to the state government.
This represents a loss, but not a final defeat, for the energized and well-funded gun control movement in the commonwealth of Virginia.
