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.
Florida Sheriff Will Deputize Gun Owners if Rioters “Overwhelm” County
He’s not messing around.
A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.
Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.
“If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.
The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.
“If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”
Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
