On the first day of the Special Session of the Virginia General Assembly, pro-gun group American Firearms Coalition confronted Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam.
Posted by American Firearms Coalition on Tuesday, July 9, 2019
With film crew on their side, activists from the gun group tried to get Northam on the record for his support of gun control laws.
One activist asked, “Gun-free zones killed 12 people at Virginia Beach, why do you want to expand gun-free zones?
Northam was pressed even further, after being asked “Why aren’t you asking the legislator to outlaw gun-free zones?”
The Virginia Governor did not respond to any of the activists’ questions.
At the end of the video, the activists described Northam’s gun control push as an “embarrassment” and “shameful”.
Northam called the special session after the Virginia Beach massacre in order to ram a slew of gun control bills down Virginia gun owners’ throats.
Interestingly enough, the perpetrator of this massacre went through all the government hoops that all gun owners must go through, and he still carried out his crime. No additional gun control laws would have likely stopped him.
However, Northam obviously ignored these stubborn facts and proceeded to push gun control forward.
But Northam was alone.
According to Second Amendment Daily, Republican Senator Tommy Norment filed a gun control bill at the last minute.
Second Amendment Daily stated that “Norment’s bill would make FELONS out of otherwise law abiding Virginians who carried a firearm into public (taxpayer funded) buildings — even with a permit!”
Thankfully, for gun owners, the special session came to a screeching halt after gun rights activists were able to get Senate Republicans to kill the session on gun control.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
