AWR Hawkins of Breitbart reported that on February 10, 2020, the Virginia State Police public relations department entertained the idea of conducting door-to-door enforcement of a suppressor ban.
During a conversation on the phone that day, the Virginia State Police public relations department did not dismiss the idea of going door-to-door to enforce a suppressor ban.
According to Hawkins, Breitbart News reached out to the Virginia State Police and pointed out that Democrats are passing legislation to ban a number of firearm accessories. They called attention to the suppressor ban which is currently making progress in the state legislature and inquired if, “Virginia State Police will go door-to-door to get those.”
In typical fashion, the public relations official did not give a direct yes” or “no” answer on the question of door-to-door enforcement. Instead, she said, “[No laws] have gone into effect, no laws have been formalized or finalized.”
She added that they do not, “do the speculation because nothing’s been passed into formal law,” but set the record straight that their job is to “enforce and comply with the laws” that are on the books.
On February 9, 2020, Breitbart News provided coverage on legislation banning suppressors. The legislation received enough votes from Democrats in the House of Delegates Public Safety Committee. The Washington Examiner reported that the ban is expected to move out of the full House, and then move on to the Virginia Senate.
The suppressor ban bill also bans “high capacity” magazines.
Virginia Democrats are not wasting time to impose their will in the Virginia legislature and start slowly chipping away at Virginians’ right to bear arms.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.
In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates.
Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.”
Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.
According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:
If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.
Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain.
If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
