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.
America First Florida Rep Anthony Sabatini Introduces Pro-Second Amendment Bills that Would Repeal Red Flag Laws and Make the State a 2A Sanctuary
Anthony Sabatini has quickly established himself as the most Pro-Trump State House Representative in Florida.
Last week, Sabatini unveiled House Memorial 1135, which directs Congress to designate Florida as a Second Amendment sanctuary state.
“Florida is the nation’s beacon of Freedom—and no state or local official should administer any unconstitutional law,” Sabatini added.
The memorial alludes to the U.S. Constitution as well as the state’s constitution as far as the right to bear arms is concerned.
On February 2x, 2021, Sabatini made an announcement with regards to his filing of HB 6083, the bill which would repeal Florida’s unconstitutional red flag law. Under red flag laws, judges have the ability to confiscate firearms without due process.
“The Bill also repeals other irrational anti-#2A laws—including the law prohibiting adults 18-20 years of age from purchasing firearms,” Sabatini commented.
For those of us with short-term memory, Florida passed a red flag gun confiscation order in 2018 under the watch of a Republican-controlled state legislature. U.S. Senator Rick Scott was governor at the time and ended up signing the red flag bill, SB 7026, into law. He was sadly rewarded with higher office by voters that election cycle.
Thankfully, the Sunshine State can count on the likes of Sabatini to make things right. More legislators will likely need to copy his example in order to rid Florida of this gun control abomination.
