After passing an unconstitutional “assault rifle” ban through a House committee, the Virginia state delegation forced onlookers to leave the committee under threat of arrest, essentially stripping them of their 1st Amendment right to petition the government.
The shocking video of law enforcement stomping on the free speech of the people in attendance during the committee hearing can be seen here:
Virginia House Bill 961 would effectively ban semi-automatic weapons as well as suppressors and magazines. The House Public Safety Committee only gave the dozens of activists who showed up for the vote Friday morning a combined total of five minutes to speak, according to the NRA-ILA.
“Though the committee amended the bill to allow citizens to keep affected firearms and suppressors they lawfully owned prior to the ban, confiscation is undoubtedly still the end goal of Michael Bloomberg and he will continue to work toward this end. There is no option for citizens to keep their lawfully acquired magazines with capacities greater than twelve rounds, forcing millions of Virginians to dispose of their property, become a felon, or surrender it to the government,” the NRA-ILA wrote.
The committee passed the legislation by a 12-9 vote that fell on party lines, with all Democrats in support and all Republicans in opposition. It will now be considered by the full state delegation in the days to come.
The Labiosa Liberty PAC posted the official livestream on Facebook showing Chairman Patrick Hope of Arlington making the signal for enraged pro-constitution attendees to be removed from the committee room. The livestream goes dead while the individuals are being stripped of their rights and removed, then resumes after they are gone.
“According to those in the room, Virginia State Police formed a riot line between the public and the committee and gave the public 30 seconds to leave or be arrested. Shortly after the room was cleared the committee came back into session with an empty chamber to consider additional gun control measures,” Labiosa Liberty PAC wrote.
Following the peaceful gun march on the Virginia Capitol last month, the state legislature has ramrodded through many intolerable acts of gun control. They were completely undaunted and laughed off the messages of peace, love and inclusivity from the pro-2nd Amendment protesters at that event.
Meanwhile, pro-gun protesters in Kentucky are sending a different message to their lawmakers:
Gun owners in Kentucky made a bold stand for freedom on Friday when they converged on their state Capitol building in Frankfort.
While Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam made the area around his state Capitol a 2nd Amendment-free zone, the patriots of Kentucky actually entered the Capitol building with their firearms, which resulted in some iconic and inspiring photographs.
The Louisville Courier Journal reported on the successful rally of constitutionalists who are making it clear that their rights will be infringed upon no more…
The gun owners are vigilant regarding infringements on the 2nd Amendment that have been introduced in the state legislature. New Democrat Governor Andy Beshear is on the record stating that he supports red flag gun confiscation, and the constitutional activists are steadfastly dedicated to not letting that happen.
“We’re watching,” said Tony Wheatley, a leader of the group We Are KY Gun Owners. “Not only for the gun issues but for all constitutional issues that come up.”
“It’s kind of like the Declaration of Independence — it was basically a letter to the king saying we’re tired of what you’re trying to feed us,” Wheatley added. “Same thing here. It’s symbolic. We’re listening. We want changes.”
The free men of Kentucky are making a statement that they will not let their state become like Virginia, where Democrats have taken over and made a complete mockery of the Bill of Rights.
It has become clear that additional action other than just peaceful protests and smiling photo ops will be needed for Virginians to reclaim their lost freedoms.
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.
