A gun control group claims that voters in certain Republican-controlled legislative districts “are widely in support of common-sense gun reforms” during a special session which will tackle gun control next month.
Gun control group Brady United employed the services of the Charlotte, North Carolina based polling firm Public Policy Polling. PPP polled 902 Virginians in key legislative districts about various gun control measures.
The districts polled consisted of Speaker of the House Kirk Cox of Colonial Heights, Senator Tommy Norment of James City County and Senator Bill DeSteph of Virginia Beach. Virginia Beach’s Senate District 7 was also polled, which Republican Senator Frank Wagner previously held. Wagner did not decide to run for re-election.
The first question, which asked about bans on so-called “assault weapons”, revealed that 62 percent supported such a ban, 34 percent opposed it, and 4 percent were unsure.
Additionally, the poll also found that 63 percent of respondents, which included half of gun owners surveyed, backed bans on magazines holding more than 10 rounds.
Brady’s poll also found that 83 percent of people who responded —including 73 percent of people who voted for President Trump in 2016— are also behind the idea of “red flag” gun confiscation orders that allow someone to petition a judge to seize someone’s guns simply if they’re perceived as a threat to themselves or others.
“We have an epidemic of gun violence in Virginia, and regardless of party or political beliefs, voters want to see their elected officials take action, not sides,” Brady President Kris Brown declared in a statement.
The gun control leader added, “When the special session convenes on July 9, Speaker Cox and Leader Norment have a choice – will they stand with their own communities and pass extreme risk laws and assault weapon bans into law? Or will they shun their own voters and retreat to the embrace of the gun lobby?”
In the era of Trump, polls should be taken with a grain of salt.
Governor Northam is hell-bent on joining the rest of his Democratic colleagues in making Virginia a safe haven for gun control. It stands to reason that he will use whatever polling information he can find to trick Republicans into supporting gun control.
Interestingly, the Virginia Beach shooter acquired his firearm legally. In other words, he had to go through a federal background check like any law-abiding gun owner would have to do in America. Even with federal gun control in place, a deranged lunatic was able to wreak havoc in Virginia Beach.
The gun control that Northam desires would have done nothing to deter the murderer.
Leftists are Having a Meltdown Over Trump Potentially Winning Minnesota
Joshua Klein of Breitbart News reported on a leaked document that the conservative outlet obtained revealing a plan by radical leftist organizations to stoke up unrest in Minnesota after a potential Trump victory.
The group is gearing up for post-election disturbances and is planning to carry out “strategic disruption” on a large scale.
TakeAction Minnesota is leading the charge and is calling for leftists to get out on the streets according to a confidential document being passed around the group’s leadership. The document serves as an instruction manual for what leftists should do out on the streets in the next week.
“We believe that regardless of the strength of the Minnesota election system, mass mobilization will and must happen in Minnesota to defend democracy,” the leaked document stated.
“We expect that this mobilization will create space and opportunity for unrest, primarily in Minneapolis. In this context, the situation could rapidly spiral beyond control depending on the nature of the unrest and the State’s reaction.”
The group alluded to the right-wing, in addition to the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD), as potential actors who will incite or facilitate violence. In light of these facts, Minnesota leftist organizations must be ready for unrest according to the document’s advice.
“The possibility of right-wing violence is real, as is the possibility of MPD inciting or enabling violence,” the document declared. Further, it contended that the MPD is “either disengaged or instigating tension” since the “uprising” that kicked off in the aftermath of George Floyd.
TakeAction Minnesota was heavily involved in the mass movement after the death of George Floyd. They were one of the most vocal groups calling for the abolition of MPD and became a leader in the national push to “defund the police.” After the group made enough noise, a veto-proof majority of the Minneapolis City Council promised to dissolve the Police Department, while vowing to replace it with a new system of public safety.
Leftist groups in Minneapolis expect a wide range of possibilities on November 3 — unclear results, Trump refusing to accept the results, or a suspected case of election interference in the chance that Trump wins.
The document cites an alleged rise in “white nationalist organization and activity” which has generated “multiple nights of infiltrator terror that targeted Black and brown business corridors and nearby neighborhoods” during “the most recent uprisings.”
“It is possible Black churches may also become a target. St. Cloud and Duluth are also two cities to keep in mind given their proximity to large white nationalist geographies and demographic and ideological make-up,” the document cautioned. “Additionally, we know of white nationalist infiltration and organization at Greater Minnesota universities.”
One section titled “Theory of What Will Happen,” ends up predicting a contested election in Minnesota and other states. This section outlines the groups’ role to “support efforts by the State (led by the Governor, Attorney General and Secretary of State) to resolve the contest rapidly and to prevent right-wing vigilantes, with or without the support of local officials, from interfering with the certification of Minnesota’s electors by the ‘safe harbor’ date [December 8, the last day for states to resolve contested election results]” and “to prevent illegitimate Federal efforts to intervene on behalf of local right-wing groups.”
Should other states have disputed elections, the leftist organizations have vowed a swift response.
“Knowing that there may be energy to join nearby mass mobilizations, we may choose to host actions here to diminish the amount of out-of-state actors activating in that contest,” the document read. “For contests farther away, we will work to maintain public demand as asked to support their work and coordinated via national infrastructure.”
Election Day is quickly coming and Minnesota will be a key battleground state for people to watch. Trump barely lost it by 45,000 votes and as of now Biden is ahead by 48.0 to 43.3 on RealClearPolitics. Win or lose, Minnesota will remain a crucial state for a newly re-aligned GOP’s electoral strategy.
Trump must continue hammering away at his pro-law & order to ensure victory in this state and coast on to a resounding victory in the General Election.
