Judge Allows Virginia Gun Range to Reopen in Defiance of Blackface Northam’s Tyrannical Edict

Published

on

A Lynchburg, Virginia  judge has issued a temporary injunction declaring that a Lynchburg gun range is not covered by Governor Northam’s order which outlines the kind of businesses that must close during the Wuhan virus pandemic. Due to this injunction, SafeSide Tactical can reopen its gun range.

A lawsuit was originally filed by Virginia Citizens Defense League, Gun Owners of America and SafeSide Tactical, contending that the governor’s Executive Order (EO) to close non-essential businesses, namely indoor gun ranges, is unconstitutional.

According to the suit, EO53 is an usurpation of the governor’s constitutional power and it violates the right to keep and bear arms as enshrined in the state constitution.

“There is no pandemic exception to the fundamental liberties that the Constitution of Virginia Safeguards,” asserted David Browne, the plaintiff’s attorney.

The judge concurred with the argument.

The ruling was issued on April 28 by Judge F. Patrick Yeatts which said, “The Governor, the Department of State Police, and all law enforcement divisions, agencies and officers within the commonwealth, are hereby enjoined and prohibited from enforcing, in any manor, the prohibition on public access to Lynchburg Range & Training, LLC (SafeSide).”

Gun ranges were singled out in the governor’s order as “non-essential” businesses.

During his Monday afternoon briefing, Governor Northam said that the Virginia government is weighing options in order to respond to this ruling.

The ruling does note that Safeside still needs to comply with social distancing and sanitizing rules that health officials establish, and that nothing in the order should impede the enforcement of any other provision of EO53.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
