Trump Says Virginia Dems ‘Will Take Your Guns Away,’ Thanks Them for GOP Victory In 2020

Might want to rethink that gun control push…

Elections have consequences. Republicans in Virginia know it all too well. After Democrats secured both state chambers of Congress last November, they almost immediately said they were coming for the guns.

Heck, even far-left Governor Ralph Northam, ol’ blackface himself, was giddy just thinking about it. However, lefties have seen tremendous pushback – as you might expect. On Thursday, President Trump virtually sent liberal Virginians a warning.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to raise awareness about the extreme anti-freedom proposals that Virginia Democrats are pushing in their state, which have included the possibility of gun confiscation.

Trump’s tweet comes as an uprising to the Democrats’ anti-Second Amendment agenda has swelled across the state as the majority of cities, towns, and counties have declared themselves to be sanctuaries from the proposed unconstitutional restrictions on the Second Amendment.

A local Virginia firearm store says that the sale of guns, magazines, and ammunition have gone up by a whopping 200 percent.

Along with that, the store owner says more customers are now paying with cash than ever before.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“This is the largest Christmas and November, December that we’ve had, basically, since Trump has come on board. The only other person that was a better salesman right now is when we had President Obama,” said Jerry Rapp, owner of SpecDive Tactical, in Alexandria, comparing the administrations of President Trump and his White House predecessor, Barack Obama.

“Every time [Obama] turned around he was going to ban something or make something illegal. But even that isn’t even close to the amount of sales we’re selling right now of magazines, of guns, of every kind of gun from pistol, rifle, shotguns, to AR platforms” and ammunition, Rapp told the Washington Examiner. “We can’t keep it in stock.”

So why are folks in Virginia paying with cash more now than ever?

That likely has something to do with Virginia freshman Democratic Rep. Jennifer Wexton. Wexton has suggested legislation in Congress that uses credit card to track gun purchases.

The bill isn’t likely to pass Capitol Hill, but the news about her ideas made it back to her home state and it seems folks are responding accordingly.

Along with Wexton’s legislation, Rapp stated that people are growing increasingly concerned about privacy issues, another reason for the uptick in cash sales.

Minority Owners Of Washington Redskins Looking To Sell Stake In Team

Published

Three individual minority owners of the Washington Redskins professional football team are looking to sell off their shares in the team amid controversy over the team’s name. Again. Yes, it seems the Redskins are forever caught in a loop of having to defend their team name from the gaggle of social justice warriors running around the nation screaming and crying about faux systemic racism and crusading for causes like renaming sports teams in order to make themselves feel important and like they have a purpose. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Businessmen Robert Rothman, Dwight Schar, and Frederick Smith have hired an investment banking firm to conduct the search for potential buyers, which, according to one unnamed source, was happening because they are “not happy being a partner” of majority owner Daniel Snyder, the Washington Post reported. ProFootballTalk first reported that Schar and Smith were trying to sell their share of the team on Sunday. Rothman is chairman and CEO of Black Diamond Capital, a private investment company; Schar is chairman of NVR Inc., one of the largest homebuilder companies in the country; and Smith is the chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx, which has a long-standing partnership with the football franchise. Together, they account for about 40% of the team’s ownership. The remaining stake rests with Snyder, his mother, and his sister. The organization said on Friday that it will conduct a “thorough review” of the team’s name amid new demands that it stops referring to the team as the Redskins, which critics view as being racist and insensitive to Native Americans. Snyder released a statement last Friday saying, “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors,…

Good News For Trump: SCOTUS Issues Ruling Against ‘Faithless’ Electors

Published

on

The Supreme Court ruled against “faithless electors,” allowing states to require presidential electors to vote for the candidates they are committed to, which is good news for President Trump just ahead of what is sure to be a very tight contest come November. Essentially, this means that electors can’t rebel and refuse to cast their votes for the candidate who won the state, therefore, if Trump wins a state, he gets all of the votes without worrying about losing any. The ruling strips a tool of dissension out of the hands of the left who aren’t above using any and every strategy at their disposal to stop him from having a second term. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The 538 members of the Electoral College are chosen based on the presidential vote in each state, and they, in turn, elect the president of the United States. States can require these electors to vote for the statewide winner or otherwise follow state laws, the court ruled. Justices decided against four 2016 Electoral College electors seeking to overturn state laws binding them to the presidential nominee to whom they are pledged. In that race, a record seven electors didn’t back the candidate to which they were pledged. A total of 10 electors rebelled last cycle, and seven of those votes counted toward the final tally. The overall results were 304 for Donald Trump, 227 for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and others seven, instead of Trump 306 to Clinton 232. Four “faithless electors,” one from Colorado and another three from Washington, presented their oral arguments to the Supreme Court last month challenging the laws in 32 states and the District of Columbia. This is a good thing. Whoever wins a state should be entitled to those Electoral College votes. Period.…
