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.
As the U.S. Elections Approaches, Thousands of Immigrants are Gaining U.S. Citizenship
America’s foreign voter base continues to grow ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
John Binder of Breitbart News noted that this is “adding a bloc of first-time foreign-born voters to the electorate.”
The last few months has seen delays in naturalization ceremonies thanks to the Wuhan virus pandemic. As of June, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency restarted ceremonies, with 2,000 immigrants being naturalized according to a report published by Camila DeChalus on June 10.
Other immigrants, who were expected to receive citizenship in 2020, are now pressing legal action against the federal government.
Prior to the crisis, USICS was naturalizing immigrants to the tune of 60,000 monthly.
Binder broke down the overall legal migration numbers:
Legal immigration levels — where 1.2 million immigrants secure Green Cards and nearly a million obtain naturalized citizenship annually — has driven up the nation’s foreign-born voting population to record levels.
The Breitbart writer highlighted another demographic trend that is taking place across America:
In February, Pew Research Center revealed that for the first time since 1970, one-in-ten U.S. voters will have been born outside the country in the 2020 election. High legal immigration levels have also ensured that Hispanic voters will replace black Americans as the largest voting minority for the first time in U.S. history.
According to research from The Atlantic, the New York Times, and Axios, Democrats tend to benefit from an increased foreign-born population.
Binder gave an overview about what these foreign voter numbers look like:
The Atlantic‘s Ronald Brownstein reveals nearly 90 percent of House congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average are won by Democrats. This means every congressional district with a foreign-born population exceeding 14 percent has a 90 percent chance of electing Democrats and only a ten percent chance of electing a Republican.
Exit polling data indicated that Trump won 49 percent of native-born Americans’ votes, whereas Clinton won 45 percent of the vote. As far as foreign voters were concerned, Clinton trounced Trump by raking in 64 percent of the immigrant vote, while Trump got only 31 percent.
At the moment, the Binder points out that the “U.S. is on track to import about 15 million new foreign-born voters in the next two decades due to existing legal immigration levels.”
Those 15 million new foreign-born voters include about eight million who will arrive through chain migration, where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.
The U.S. is undergoing a massive demographic transformation thanks to public policy.
In previous eras, migration waves would at least be contained by legislative pauses that allowed for assimilation.
But now, elites are content by keeping the illegal and legal migration gravy train going without any pause in sight.
Given immigrant voting trends, many freedoms such as the right to bear arms and free speech could be in jeopardy thanks to Democrats gaining a new voting bloc that will help them stay in power for a long time.
