ICYMI: Dem Governor Increases Corrections Budget In Anticipation of Tossing Gun Owners In Jail

Virginia gun sales are doing very well. Go figure.

Virginia’s Ralph Northam is dedicated to eroding the United States Constitution, one piece at a time. It’s just what liberals do. They enjoy it. They get some sort of twisted pleasure from it.

As if being known for wearing blackface in his youth wasn’t enough to hurt Northam’s image in 2019, the far-left governor now wants to go after law-abiding gun owners. Because, why not? He’s got the media on his side.

Might as well go for gold!

As if Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s wholesale attack on law-abiding gun owners wasn’t enough, the disgraced public official and his Michael Bloomberg-bought allies in the General Assembly now want the state’s hard-working taxpayers to foot the bill for their unconstitutional schemes. The budget bill (HB30) includes an appropriation of a quarter million dollars to carry out a host of gun control measures that Northam and his anti-gun allies hope to enact.

The $250,000 is appropriated to the Corrections Special Reserve Fund in order to provide for the “increase in the operating cost of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment” of Northam’s gun control measures. Among the enumerated laws that this allocation is meant to fund is a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, the criminalization of private firearms transfers, and gun confiscation orders issued without due process.

Oh, brother. What were Virginians thinking?

Here’s more…

A 1997 Department of Justice-funded study of the 1994 federal “assault weapons” ban determined that “At best, the assault weapons ban can have only a limited effect on total gun murders, because the banned weapons and magazines were never involved in more than a modest fraction of all gun murders.” A 2004 follow-up Department of Justice-funded study came to a similar conclusion. The study determined that “AWs [assault weapons] and LCMs [large capacity magazines] were used in only a minority of gun crimes prior to the 1994 federal ban,” “relatively few attacks involve more than 10 shots fired,” and “the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.”

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.

Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) did not heed these words.

The Clinton-ally says racists and white supremacists like Donald Trump have no place in the Old Dominion state.

Clearly, McAuliffe forgot that the state’s current governor, Ralph Northam, either wore blackface or dressed in a KKK outfit (he can’t remember which) in his youth.

It was kind of a big scandal earlier this year, Ter-bear!

Racists and white nationalists have no place in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Go home, @realDonaldTrump.

You can’t make this stuff up. It’s like straight from The Babylon Bee.

Reactions:

President Trump ripped into Northam after racist photos surfaced from his yearbook showing men in blackface and a KKK hood.

Democrats and Republicans are calling for Northam’s resignation, but he says he’s not leaving his post.

Here’s what 45 had to say on the subject…

Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia just stated, “I believe that I am not either of the people in that photo.” This was 24 hours after apologizing for appearing in the picture and after making the most horrible statement on “super” late term abortion. Unforgivable!

Ed Gillespie, who ran for Governor of the Great State of Virginia against Ralph Northam, must now be thinking Malpractice and Dereliction of Duty with regard to his Opposition Research Staff. If they find that terrible picture before the election, he wins by 20 points!

Save conservative media!

White House Reveals Details Of Plan To Ship 150 Million Rapid Virus Tests To States

Published

on

According to brand new reports, states are set to receive 6.5 million rapid coronavirus tests this week, thanks to a plan detailed by President Trump on Monday, calling the move a “game changer” that will enable leadership in those states to provide better protection for first responders and to reopen schools. The whole idea of reopening schools has been something of a hot button issue as of late, despite the mountain of evidence that supports children not having severe issues with the virus like high-risk adults do. Here’s more from the Washington Times: Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, a Republican, thanked Mr. Trump for the BinaxNOW tests. He said the 15-minute turnaround time will allow him to screen K-12 schoolteachers daily instead of weekly. “We want to get 100% of our kids back in the classroom,” Mr. Reeves said in the White House Rose Garden. All told, 100 million of the Abbott tests will be sent to states. Governors can use them as they see fit, though the White House wants them to keep K-12 schools open, support critical infrastructure and first responders and stamp out local flare-ups of COVID-19. Mr. Trump said the other 50 million tests will go to nursing homes, assisted-living facilities and historically Black colleges and universities as part of an effort to protect the most vulnerable. He said the shipments will be a “massive and groundbreaking” expansion of the nation’s testing. Despite what mainstream media outlets have had to say about the Trump administrations handling of the coronavirus, the president has done a fantastic job. He’s refused to abuse his power and get involved in state affairs, allowing governors to handle the bulk of the work just as the Constitution calls for. And, for the most part, the majority of governors seem to have done fairly…

David Hogg Issues Apology For Condemning Violence Carried Out By Non-White People: ‘It’s Not My Place’

Published

on

Leftism continues to prove that it is indeed some sort of wacky mental disorder by showcasing just how impossible it is to hold this view and be consistent. The latest case in point comes to us from anti-gun activist and Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg. Hogg made some comments about condemning violent acts and seemed to allude this included acts perpetrated by individuals who weren’t white as well. Seems like a reasonable, principled, consistent take. Kind of unusual for this guy. But, after he got pressure from folks, he walked that back and said “it’s not my place” to condemn those violent acts done by people of color. Sigh. via Daily Wire: “Young people can stage a nonviolent political revolution over the coming decade but it will require all of us voting in consistently high # EVERY election, protesting, organizing and running for office and most importantly the persistence, love and community to overcome setbacks,” Hogg tweeted on Monday morning. “To do so we must all practice the humility, kindness and grace to be the political leaders we need to be in order to create such change.” “We must not fall for the slander espoused by those in power that says violence will solve our problems, they only say that so they can have an excuse to grow their authoritarianism. I have seen how violence and hate destroys lives and communities- it is not the answer,” he continued. “The use of violence to acquire political power is deeply rooted in imperialism, capitalism and white supremacy[.] I personally refuse to believe that the use of this same violence will ever create nonviolent systems of government that represent and support everyone.” https://twitter.com/davidhogg111/status/1310581905591590914 https://twitter.com/davidhogg111/status/1310591353445810177 Hogg later clarified that his comments are only directed at “young white people” who have used the protests and…
