Republican Official Calls for Virginians to Give Guns to Friends and Family during Christmas

Published

on

The outgoing Republican chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors Corey Stewart called on Virginians to give law-abiding friends and family members firearms for Christmas.

WUSA 9 reported that “The urge comes in response to Democratic promises to pass new gun laws when they take power in Richmond in January.”

“A gun for Christmas, especially for self-protection, I think it’s a great gift,” Stewart stated.
Stewart expects a lot of people will be buying guns during the holiday.

When he was asked if he purchased a gun for his wife for Christmas, Stewart laughed.

“Well that’s a secret,” Stewart said. “I don’t want her to watch Channel 9 and know what I’m going to buy her!”

According to Second Amendment lawyers, it’s legal for an individual to give a firearm as a gift to another person, so long as the recipient is legally allowed to possess a firearm.

“It is a felony if they are not and you have knowingly given them a firearm,” attorney Ed Riley said in a video on the website of U.S. Lawshield of Virginia.

Riley asserted that it’s smarter to give a gift card, and allow the recipient to undergo a background check.

With Second Amendment Sanctuary cities taking off, Virginia will likely be a battleground for future gun control fights.

The Democrat-controlled state government— from the Governor’s mansion to the legislature— will be enthusiastic about pursuing gun control.

Gun rights activists will undoubtedly have their hands full in the next legislative session.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
