Game-Changer: West Virginia Invites Virginia’s Second Sanctuary Counties to Secede and Join the Pro-Gun State

Published

on

West Virginia lawmakers are pushing a resolution inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to become constituents of West Virginia.

AWR Hawkins reported that West Virginia lawmakers introduced a resolution, HCR8, which is inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to join the state 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.

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.

Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.

President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
