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.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
