After Pro-Second Amendment Rally, Virginia Democrats Kill Pro-Gun Legislation and Advance Red Flag Gun Confiscation

Published

on

A day after the pro-gun rally in Richmond, Virginia, Democrats are quickly moving their anti-gun agenda forward.

First, they started off by killing pro-gun legislation.

Some of these bills included proposals to make it easier to carry guns in places of worship, bring Constitutional Carry to Virginia, limit gun-free zones, and strengthen mandatory sentences for crimes involving guns.

Three Republicans, Delegates John McGuire, Dave LaRock, and Wendell Walker, introduced bills to repeal a state law that bans guns, knives, and other weapons in places of worship unless there is  “good and sufficient reason” to bring them on the premises.

Several Republicans cited Jack Wilson’s heroics in a Texas church where he stopped a potential mass shooter last month as the reason to reform Virginia’s gun laws. This bill would be killed in a panel by a 5 to 3 vote.

The gun-free zone reform bill would have made it easier for victims of mass shootings to sue localities that establish gun-free zones but fail to implement measures to secure these areas. The public safety subcommittee killed the bill on a 6 to 2 vote.

A Republican delegate, Charles Poindexter introduced a bill that would have increased mandatory minimum sentences for felonies involving guns.

The proposal would have raised the minimum sentence for a first offense from three to five years and increased sentences for subsequent offenses from five years to 10 years.

“This gives our prosecutors and our police an excellent tool to use to address those people that really use guns in an illegal fashion,” Poindexter declared. “It focuses on gun violence itself.”

This bill failed on strict party lines.

John McGuire, who is vying for the GOP nomination to challenge incumbent Democrat congresswoman Abigail Spanberger, sponsored Constitutional Carry legislation.

This bill would have eliminated the requirement that Virginians get a permit to carry a concealed handgun.

It ultimately died in the subcommittee on a 6 to 2 vote.

Democrats did not stop with killing bills.

They also proceeded to go on offense. The Virginia Senate recently advanced red flag gun confiscation legislation that would give law enforcement the power to confiscate firearms from people who allegedly pose a threat to themselves or others.

The Democratic-controlled Senate preliminarily greenlit the “red flag” law. SB 240 would establish a process for attorneys and law enforcement to file gun confiscation orders against a person they believe poses “a substantial risk of injury to himself or others.”

This move came the day after 22,000 thousands of Second Amendment activists peacefully gathered at the state Capitol.

The measure is slated for a final vote in the Senate before it is taken to the House.

Virginia Democrats are not joking.

They want to undermine private gun ownership through the passage of gradual control legislation.

Red flag laws offer them a good first step in their long-term quest to destroy the Second Amendment.

New Mexico Will Be Newest State to Enact Unconstitutional ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation

The 2nd Amendment is under attack like never before.

Published

on

The state of New Mexico will be the next state to enact red flag laws that will strip due process rights from gun owners and confiscate their weapons based on an edict from a judge.

The New Mexico state house approved a red flag bill by a 39-31 vote last week. Having previously been passed in the state senate by a 22-20 margin earlier this month, the legislation will be placed on the desk of Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who is a massive proponent of red flag laws and expected to enthusiastically sign the bill into law.

“We have an obligation to every single New Mexican, every single family, every single child that we do everything in our power that can provide just that additional layer of safety and public support,” Lujan Grisham said about her support of red flag laws.

The legislation was not passed unanimously by all Democrats in the state house, as legislators Harry Garcia of Grants, Raymundo Lara of Chamberino, Willie Madrid of Chaparral, Rudy Martinez of Bayard, Patricio Ruiloba of Albuquerque, Joseph Sanchez of Alcalde and Candie Sweetser of Deming joined Republicans in opposing the bill.

New Mexico will be the 18th state, along with Washington D.C., to pass this unconstitutional measure that eviscerates multiple amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Counties are passing resolutions to urge Gov. Lujan Grisham not to sign the bill into law.

“Senate Bill 5 and House Bill 7 make criminals of innocent citizens and deprive them of due process of law by making it a criminal offense for gun-owners living with a person made subject to a Red Flag order to not secure their guns from that person, even if the gun owner had no knowledge of the Red Flag order or had no control over another person’s actions,” a resolution passed in Lincoln County states.

In addition to Lincoln County, the counties of Otero and Torrence have passed resolutions condemning red flag laws. Doña Ana County passed a resolution in favor of the anti-constitutional measures.

Big League Politics has highlighted some of the worst abuses stemming from red flag laws that have occurred throughout the country, including a military veteran who lost his weapons due to a case of mistaken identity in Florida; a doctor snitching on a patient who was suing him so his guns would be confiscated in New Jersey; an Iraq War veteran who lost his guns after protesting the governor while wearing a MAGA hat in Oregon; and a man who lost his life when police came to confiscate his guns in Maryland.

Sadly, it will not be long before these kind of heinous abuses come to the state of New Mexico. Lujan Grisham is expected to sign the legislation into law in the upcoming days.
