Published

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.

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.
