The National Association for Gun Rights, reported on a recent victory that gun owners scored against anti-gun Governor Ralph Northam, the same governor who BLP exposed for either wearing blackface or a KKK hood in medical school.
The Virginia General Assembly came into session on July 9, 2019 to address the issue of gun control, but ultimately shutdown all discussions the same day. Gun owners caught a break when no gun control measures went to Northam’s desk.
The National Association for Gun Rights had staff present in Richmond for the special session delivering thousands of petitions from pro-gun Virginians to their elected officials. These petitions were designed to urge lawmakers to oppose Northam’s gun control schemes.
Staff from a gun rights organization skyrocketing in membership, the American Firearms Coalition, confronted Northam directly as he scurried away to avoid their questioning.
Gun owners dodged the proverbial bullet when gun control died on arrival. The Virginia legislature will not meet again until November 18th.
After the regular session of the Virginia General Assembly, committees in both the House and Senate came together to refer a slew of gun control bills to the Virginia State Crime Commission.
The State Crime Commission is comprised of members from both the House and Senate, as well as individuals appointed by the Executive branch. This body does not have legislative or regulatory power, and only has the authority to make recommendations to the Virginia General Assembly provided that they have the majority of the legislative members of the commission onboard.
Republicans have slim majorities in both the House and Senate as well as majority legislative control on the State Crime Commission.
Northam was obviously dealt a major blow when all his gun control schemes were killed on July 9.
But he wasn’t the only one that saw his image tarnished.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment took heat from his own caucus after filing a gun control bill right before the special session kicked off.
As a result, Republican Senator Bill Stanley resigned as Senate Majority Whip right after Norment filed his gun control bill.
After tremendous pressure placed by groups like NAGR and the American Firearms Coalition, Norment abruptly withdrew his bill and declared that he won’t support “any measure that restricts the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens,” according to a report from WDBJ 7.
Norment quickly rescinded his bill and stated that he won’t support “any measure that restricts the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens,” according to WDBJ 7.
That being said, the fight to preserve gun rights in Virginia is far from over.
As the upcoming general election approaches, Democrats are looking to take complete control of the General Assembly to make sure that Virginia falls even further in those rankings.
Should they control all branches of the government, Democrats will work with Northam to carry out all of his proposals in 2020.
For that reason, NAGR is “keeping a close eye on the Virginia State Crime Commission and is working on a battle plan to expose anti-gun politicians and lobby candidates for office in support of the Second Amendment in the days leading up to the elections this fall.”
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
