The National Rifle Association gave away more than a thousand AR-15 magazines earlier this week in defiance of Ralph Northam’s planned Virginia gun control package.
The magazines have a standard 30-round capacity. Authoritarian Democrats in the Virginia Legislature are seeking to ban transfers of the magazines, which they claim are “high capacity.” Existing owners of 30-round magazines would be permitted to keep them, but would have to sign up for a government database.
Gun owners who don’t sign up for the mandatory gun accessory registration list would be either charged with a felony or forced to give up their property under Delegate Mark Levine’s HB 961.
Magpul Industries donated the magazines to the NRA as a way to show solidarity with peaceful gun owners facing a serious erosion of their Second Amendment rights in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Magpul’s magazines are some of the most popular on the civilian, military and law enforcement market, and can be acquired in free states that respect the Second Amendment for a relatively cheap price.
Virginia has become ground zero in the struggle between Orwellian elites and freedom-loving patriots over gun rights. Governor Ralph Northam is seeking to demonize a pro-Second Amendment protest slated for the state capital in Richmond, having declared a dubious state of emergency on the basis of supposed “online extremism” surrounding the rally.
Northam may be seeking to distract from his own scrupulous history of racial controversy through his gun control crusade.
As the governor moves to seize emergency powers in order to enforce gun control, patriots of Virginia should take every possible opportunity to acquire standard capacity magazines for popular civilian rifles before it’s too late.
Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
