West Virginia lawmakers are pushing a resolution inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to become constituents of West Virginia.
This resolution alludes to 1863, the very year Republicans broke off from slave-owning Virginia and formed West Virginia.
At the time, the people of Western Virginia did not believe “the government at Richmond” represented their interests.
Now, another divide is emerging. But this time its concerns gun rights issues.
So far, 118 local governments in Virginia have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries.
West Virginia Delegates are using the resolution to declare that gun rights are on the chopping block in Virginia and that counties who choose to become a part of West Virginia will have their Second Amendment rights protected.
HCR 8 stated:
Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and
Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitution.
Several Delegates such as “Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter and Linville” are sponsors of this legislation.
This resolution demands that a Special Session of state legislators plan “a special election to provide for the approval of the admission, or, the rejection of such admission, of such county or independent city.”
The Associated Press reported that Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam will announce a gun ban on January 15, 2020, when a peaceful pro-gun rally is set to take place.
Tensions are heating up in Virginia as many Second Amendment supporters believe their right to keep and bear arms in under grave danger thanks to Democratic majority in the Virginia General Assembly.
Many fear that the weapons and firearms accessories that law-abiding gun owners have traditionally owned could be threatened by new legislation which undermines this otherwise lawful ownership of firearms.
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.
