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Norment quickly rescinded his bill and stated that he won’t support “any measure that restricts the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens,” according to WDBJ 7.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.”

GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis Follows Democrat Orders, Locks Down Florida After Media Pressure Campaign
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a statewide shelter order on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 in response to the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
“I’m going to be doing an executive order today directing all Floridians to limit movements and personal interactions outside the home to only those necessary,” he stated. “To obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities.”
DeSantis’s order will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and will last for 30 days.
If any “essential service” was missed in the initial executive order, the governor says it can be tacked on.
DeSantis claimed he consulted with the White House and had a conversation with President Donald Trump about the decision. He noted that the White House Wuhan Virus task force’s extended guidelines from Tuesday night shaped DeSantis’ decision, describing the president’s move a “national pause.”
“We’re going to be in this for another 30 days,” he declared. “At this point, even though there’s a lot of places in Florida that have very low infection rates, it makes sense to make this move now.”
DeSantis has taken advantage of this situation by pushing forward infrastructure programs. The Florida governor ordered that $2.1 billion in transportation projects be accelerated. These projects include the Howard Frankland bridge project in Tampa Bay.
Sadly, it appears that the Florida Governor has capitulated to Democrat demands to shut down the entire state, even though the Democrat cities infested with the disease are already on lock down. Thirteen left-wing members of Congress led by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz lead a media campaign by signing a letter to the governor earlier this week calling for him to issue the order.
The Wuhan Virus saga demonstrates the unforeseen costs of globalization, where basic civil liberties have to be suspended due to the problems that globalist policies cause.
Mass migration and free trade come with lots of hidden costs and increase the likelihood of generalized crises like the Wuhan Virus pandemic to occur.
