In the midst of a gun control push that includes a ban on firearms training and a wide-ranging gun registration regime, Virginia Democrats and scandal-tarred governor Ralph Northam are threatening dissident counties that are choosing to declare themselves to be ‘Second Amendment Sanctuaries’ in defiance.
When asked about the growing movement to create Second Amendment sanctuaries in the state on Friday, Northam responded with a concerning threat to those who chose to defy the state government’s push for gun control.
“If we have constitutional laws on the books and law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books, then there are going to be some consequences but I’ll cross that bridge if and when we get to it.”
Even more radical Democrats called for the use of the National Guard to enforce Northam’s gun control laws in localities where law enforcement have declined to enforce assault weapons bans and red flag laws.
“I’m not the governor, but the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law,” said far-left state representative Donald McEachin. “That’s his call, because I don’t know how serious these counties are and how severe the violations of law will be. But that’s obviously an option he has.”
More than 75 Virginia counties have already passed resolutions to oppose Northam’s comprehensive gun control manifesto. Should the municipalities stand strong in rejecting the controversial governor’s plans, the state will have a great obstacle in their way when it comes to enforcing radical gun control.
Corrupt oligarch Michael Bloomberg has also emerged from the shadows as a major funder and promoter of Northam’s gun control push. Bloomberg has funded state legislators that hope to push the mandatory gun registration plan into a full confiscation, in which existing semiautomatic rifle owners would have to surrender their lawfully owned guns to the state government.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
