Virginia Democrats Take A Step Back From Gun Control Plan After Receiving Major Backlash From Gun Owners

Published

Democrats in the state of Virginia have discovered that a great many folks who make up their constituency are supporters of the Second Amendment right to bear arms after they received massive backlash from gun owners after unveiling their gun control plan.

Now, in light of the all the criticism, Democrats in the state have decided to take a step back from the proposal.

Check out the details from TheBlaze:

Democrats will assume control of the Virginia General Assembly next year, and lawmakers quickly began submitting gun control bills that previously had little-to-no chance of passage. Gun-rights advocates statewide responded by forming “sanctuary” counties in which enforcement of new gun control laws would be de-emphasized or neglected altogether.

Monday, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw said they were adding a “grandfather clause” into the proposed assault weapon ban, which would allow gun owners to keep weapons under the policy that were already legally owned — as long as they register them.

“I’m not going to lock up a large part of Virginia,” Saslaw told the Virginia Mercury, acknowledging that a grandfather clause would “make sense.”

Gun-rights activists in Virginia are not letting their guard down after what seems like a victory, being well aware of the fact that the left will keep pushing for further restrictions on the Second Amendment.

Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League said, “We’ve been down this compromise road and their version of a compromise is they never give up anything. We are expected to give up something every time and we’re not doing it anymore. I think gun owners are tired of this and they’re gonna stand up and fight this stuff.”

Watch: Pelosi Gloats As She Fist Bumps Bill Maher, Says Trump Is Now ‘Impeached Forever’

Is she still feeling ‘somber?’

The goal of impeaching President Trump was never to kick him out of office. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives knew from the start that POTUS would be acquitted in the Senate. It’s only a matter of time. The whole point was to stain his record because they have nothing else to go on. The economy is great. Unemployment is in the basement. Jobs are abundant. Enemies fear America. Like I said, they have nothing. Check out Pelosi on Bill Maher, via The Blaze: In the days leading up to the House of Representatives passing the articles of impeachment against President Trump, Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi told members of her party to appear “solemn” during proceedings. “Don’t cheer, keep it solemn,” Pelosi said, according to a swing-district Democrat. One month later, and the appearances of solemnity appears to have gone out the window.

The LSU Tigers are fresh off a college football national championship after defeating Clemson on January 13. Unlike other teams, collegiate or professional, LSU didn’t shun President Trump in order to gain some credit with far-left loons in the media. The team showed up to the White House and created a memory that will last forever. On top of that, a video of some of the players dancing in the Oval Office has since gone viral.

From Fox News: On Friday the players danced in suits and ties — joined by the woman, whose daughter later identified her on Twitter as her mother, Gemi Bordelon, wife of former LSU Tiger offensive tackle Ben Bordelon, who went on to play for the NFL’s San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers in 1997, Heavy and WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge reported. The Bordelons joined the team on the White House visit because they’re close with members of the Louisiana congressional delegation, WBRZ reported.
