Fox News host Tucker Carlson warned of the tyranny of Virginia Democrats on the Wednesday edition of his eponymous primetime show, claiming that the liberals who run the state “hate gun owners” and want them to suffer.
“In the name of public safety, Virginia Democrats newly ascendant are trying to erase the 2nd Amendment in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” Carlson explained. “They don’t just want to make you less free. They want to destroy things simply because you enjoy them and because they might make you safer and more self-reliant.”
Carlson is referring to House Bill 567, which has been introduced by spiteful Virginia Democrats just to thumb their noses at their foes in the National Rifle Association.
The proposed legislation reads as follows:
“It is unlawful to operate an indoor shooting range in any building not owned or leased by the Commonwealth or the federal government unless (i) fewer than 50 employees work in the building or (ii) (a) at least 90 percent of the users of the indoor shooting range are law-enforcement officers, as defined in § 9.1-101, or federal law-enforcement officers, (b) the indoor shooting range maintains a log of each user’s name, phone number, address, and the law-enforcement agency where such user is employed, and (c) the indoor shooting range verifies each user’s identity and address by requiring all users to present a government-issued photo-identification card.”
“Taking away ranges won’t stop shootings, of course. There is no evidence of that at all. It will make nobody safer, just the opposite in fact. The purpose is simple: They want to take away gun ranges because gun owners like them and they hate gun owners,” Carlson explained.
Carlson interviewed Larry Keene of the National Shooting Sports Foundation about the legislation and other unconstitutional infringements that are being pushed by Virginia Democrats under the leadership of Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam.
“Clearly, it’s punitive. Clearly, they’re trying to disarm the population for whatever dark motive they might have, but what are they saying they are trying to achieve with this?” Carlson asked Keene.
“Well, he’s admitted, the delegate who introduced this bill, that it’s aimed at trying to shut down the NRA’s indoor range at their facility in Fairfax,” Keene answered. “He claims it’s to prevent workplace violence although I don’t understand how he arrives at that conclusion. It’s really to shut down the 2nd Amendment in Virginia by saying you can’t have an indoor range, and its going to cause harm to business in Virginia.”
Keene explained that other ranges besides the NRA’s indoor range will be impacted by the legislation and forced to shut down. He mentioned that businesses that violated the terms under this bill would be fined a stunning $100,000 for a single violation if it is signed into law.
Carlson finished with a question indicating that he may believe it is time to draw a line in the sand and do what it takes to resist these left-wing tyrants at war with the Constitution.
“Are people going to go along with this and just sit back and let a constitutional right evaporate, or is there going to be some pushback?” Carlson asked.

Keene said to Carlson that a large-scale resistance movement has already formed, describing the prevalence of 2nd Amendment sanctuary jurisdictions that have sprung up through the grassroots. We have covered that movement extensively at Big League Politics.
“There is a big rally coming up on January 20th in Richmond that will probably be the most well-attended event that has ever taken place where people are going to come to stand up and support their 2nd Amendment rights and make sure the legislature understands that they’re not going to stand by and let their rights be stripped from them,” Keene said.
“There’s no reason to be passive in a democracy,” Carlson concluded.
However, Governor Blackface has declared a state of emergency based on nonexistent terror threats from gun owners, and he has effectively revoked the 2nd Amendment in the state capitol by decree on the day of the rally. Civil unrest, or the boogaloo as it is now popularly referred to by activists, may be right around the corner as the “pushback” Carlson asked for may be coming very soon against gun-grabbing Virginia tyrants.
In Republican-Controlled Wyoming, A Gun Rights Group is Now being Forced to Reveal its Donors
Violation of privacy.
The Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office is cracking down on a pro-Second Amendment organization by forcing it to reveal its donors. This move was spurred by a campaign that Wyoming Gun Owners launched last summer in which it attacked a number of incumbent elected officials in races across the state.
In a letter that the office published on October 14, 2020 Wyoming Gun Owners allegedly did follow the state’s campaign finance law.
The organization pulled off a number victories by unseating incumbent lawmakers last summer and has released advertisement targeting various candidates in the elections on November 3, which includes Riverton Republican Ember Oakley and Democrat Britney Wallesch.
The pro-Second Amendment organization has been around Wyoming politics for some time and publicly disclosed that it is paying for advertisements. However, its lack of registry with the state as either a lobbying organization or a political action committee runs afoul of state guidelines.
“The Secretary of State’s Office has reviewed the advertisements paid for by WYGO and determined that they are clearly electioneering communications,” the letter stated. “As such, WYGO failed to comply with the requirements set forth in Wyo. Stat. § 22-25-106(h).”
It wasn’t until a few months ago that the group’s activities have not been reported within the state government. The Wyoming government cannot initiate the investigation on electioneering activity allegations unless someone files a formal complaint.
An initial complaint was first reported by the Riverton Ranger newspaper earlier this month. It did not gather any further steam because it was lacking in evidence to support the allegations. Subsequently, a second complaint with proper documentation was filed with the state not too long after, which prompted the Secretary of State to take action.
Wyoming Gun Owners now has until November 4 to disclose the names of its donors or be slapped with a $500 fine.
If the group refuses to follow the state’s order, the case will then be kicked to the Wyoming Attorney General, according to secretary of state spokesperson Monique Meese.
“Then we take their advice about what to do going forward,” she stated.
State Senator Anthony Bouchard founded Wyoming Gun Owners almost a decade ago. Nowadays, it is run by various members of the Dorr Family, who operate a network of pro-gun organizations pushing for pro-Second Amendment policies.
Aaron Dorr, Wyoming Gun Owners’ executive director, has had public disputes with elected officials such as Senate Vice President Ogden Driskill, who has repeatedly criticized the organization’s tactics during the 2020 election cycle.
The pro-gun organization bolstered its reputation by killing a firearm reporting bill in 2019 sponsored by former Campbell County Sheriff and current State Representative Bill Pownall. Wyoming Gun Owners ran ads supporting Bill Fortner, Pownall’s opponent. Throughout these ad blasts, Pownall was depicted as anti-gun. Fortner ended up winning in a landslide.
Such a case shows how even Republican governments will go out of their way to prop up incumbents and infringe on the privacy rights of organizations that wish to restore freedoms such as the Second Amendment. Just because politicians have an “R”s beside their name does not guarantee that they will protect individuals’ rights.
