A patriot in Virginia protested outside of Del. Mark Levine’s Alexandria home with a shotgun on Saturday, showing that he would not be scared by the gun-grabbing tyrant’s intolerable behavior.
Levine wants the police to file charges against activist Brandon Howard, leader of the Right to Bear Arms Virginia group, who Levine claims committed a crime by sharing his home address online. Levine was the lead sponsor of the assault weapons ban that died in committee on Monday.
“We’re going to tell Mark Levine: We know where you live and armed citizens of the Commonwealth are going to come to your house, to your doorstep,” Howard said in a Facebook video before the legislation was voted down.
Howard lived up to his word, and showed up at Levine’s home with his long gun and a sign reading “Withdraw HB 961,” the proposed assault weapons ban. Levine was incredibly triggered as a result, and called the police, who showed up to observe Howard as he exercised his constitutional rights.
“What’s not appropriate is to come to my house with a loaded gun to coerce me to change my position on a bill,” he said. “That will not work. That will never work with me and I suggest it will never work with this body.”
Levine wants to make an example of Howard, who he is accusing of breaking a law prohibiting the publication of a person’s name or photograph “with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass” that individual.
“Are we going to say that it’s OK to take loaded assault weapons with extended magazines and go and threaten every elected official?” Levine said in an interview on Tuesday.
Howard made it clear that he was abiding by his constitutional rights with his protest, and merely demonstrating that his God-given liberties would not be infringed.
“My goal was to tell him we the people will not tolerate tyrants stripping the rights of the law-abiding citizen,” Howard said in an interview on Tuesday. “There was no coercion. There was no intimidation.”
Levine said that the protest emboldened him to further destroy the rights of the people and criminalize their peaceful protest their public officials.
“If it’s not illegal, I’m going to be damned sure by next year it is illegal,” he said.
There is already active legislation that would criminalize speech arbitrarily deemed offensive against certain public officials in the state of Virginia:
House Bill 1627 was introduced by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne last week. The legislation “provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.”
Language in the bill explicitly criminalizes free speech, in what would constitute a blatant attack on the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.
“If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, shall use a computer or computer network to communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act, he is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor,” the legislation reads.
The legislation makes it clear that the above provision applies directly to “the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia,” which means this legislation effectively criminalizes dissent against public officials.
Tina Freitas, wife of Republican Delegate Nick Freitas, called attention to this intolerable act in a Facebook post on Tuesday night.
“Wow on cue, now they are after the 1A! Dems are trying to set up special rules exclusive to the Elite ruling class, to protect themselves from criticism!” Freitas wrote.
The Virginia Democrat tyrants might mess up and unleash a boogaloo if they are not careful, as the people have clearly had enough of their illegal overreaching.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
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.
