Virginia Senator Calls for Ralph Northam to Resign Amidst Gun Control Push

“How can the man of no integrity support the integrity of the office?”

A Virginia Senator is calling for Governor Ralph Northam to resign, just as the governor has imposed a state of emergency to safeguard against a supposed threat from pro-Second Amendment patriots.

Senator Amanda Chase of the Commonwealth’s 11th District made a post on her government Facebook page calling for the controversial and beleaguered governor to depart from office on January 20th.

Chase highlighted three derelictions of duty in making her call for the governor’s resignation. First, she slammed Northam’s support of egregious pro-abortion policies, infamously endorsing ‘live-term’ abortions of infants moments after their births.

She next blasted the governor’s nationally embarrassing blackface scandal, in which the Democrat initially apologized for a photo featuring him wearing blackface from his student yearbook page entry published by Big League Politics. Northam went on to change his mind, alleging that he wasn’t the blackface-clad character.

Chase, a conservative who represents a rural area of Virginia, pointed out that Northam’s metropolitan progressive agenda is roundly opposed by a clear majority of Virginia counties and municipalities. But the scandalized governor is moving full steam ahead even as a tsunami of Virginia counties designate themselves as sanctuaries from Northam’s gun control push.

Northam currently is spearheading a strong push to ban the transfers of all new semiautomatic sporting rifles in the commonwealth, and standard capacity 30-round magazines. Existing owners will face the prospect of turning their property in or signing up for a comprehensive state government database.

At this stage, Northam’s resignation is long overdue. Virginians have been well in need of a new, credible governor ever since Northam was exposed for his bizarre yearbook entry. But the Democratic lightning rod is set on distracting from his personal scandals with dream progressive policy drives, especially if it gives him a chance to demonize the commonwealth’s law-abiding second amendment community.

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.
