Virginia Puts New Monthly Limits On Handguns

Published

on

The Bill of Rights, contained within the United States Constitution, speaks in clear, easy-to-understand English, that the federal government does not have the authority in any capacity to infringe upon the God-given right to bear arms.

Scholars have debated what this amendment means for many, many years, which is ridiculous, because it’s spelled out for them in the text itself and in the context in which the amendment was written. People have the right to own guns and the government can’t interfere with that. Bingo.

However, big government nanny-state folk are only interested in finding new and creative ways to place as many limits on this right as possible, because an unarmed people are a whole lot easier to control.

The state of Virginia has now adopted some of the strictest gun control measures in the country after a judge shot down a bid to block a ridiculous one-handgun-a-month limit from taking effect.

Here’s more from The Free Beacon:

Virginia Democrats made gun control a top priority after taking control of both the state legislature and governor’s mansion in 2019 and quickly pushed through one of the most restrictive packages in the country. Residents in the commonwealth are now subject to universal background checks, red flag laws, and a monthly limit on how many handguns they can purchase.

Gun-rights activists had attempted to block the July 1 implementation date of those measures in separate suits. A state judge rejected a request to temporarily block the one-gun-a-month law on Thursday. The same group of gun-rights activists requested a stay in a new suit against the universal background check law, but were unable to secure a hearing before the law took effect.

Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), which is involved in both current lawsuits and considering two more, expects the new laws to anger Virginians. The new laws are at odds with a traditional pro-gun culture in the state and the quick implementation of strict gun-control measures could rankle residents enough to drive them to the polls.

Van Cleave said, “People are not going to be happy with this. “They’re not going to forget about what they’ve [Democrats] done, so it’ll be curious to see the elections in 2021 in Virginia. It might be curious to see the elections in 2020.”

People in the state have every right to be absolutely livid over this massive trampling of their God-given right to own the means needed to defend themselves. With so many radical leftists crying out for police to be defunded, which means a lot less cops actually out on the street, it’s more critical now than ever to allow folks to own guns so they can protect their lives, their families, and their property.

With the riots and general craziness happening right now, it’s imperative conservative folk stand up for gun rights, both at the polls and through legitimate forms of activism. We need to be able to protect ourselves because with the way things are going, it doesn’t appear police are going to be able to do much to help when it comes to defending yourself.

DA Says Andrew Brown Shooting was ‘Justified’, ‘Tragic’

New video evidence was released on Tuesday to explain the justification.

Published

Weeks ago, the small town of Elizabeth City, North Carolina was rocked by another police-involved shooting of an unarmed man named Andrew Brown Jr. Police had arrived to execute an arrest warrant on Brown, who had attempted to flee the scene when he was shot by officers.  Lawyers for Brown’s family suggested that the shooting was an “execution”, and demanded that authorities release body cam footage of the killing to the public. Now, the county’s district attorney has stated that, while the incident was certainly “tragic”, the police officers were justified in their use of force. North Carolina District Attorney Andrew Womble said at a press conference on Tuesday that the deputy-involved shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. “while tragic, was justified” – and no law enforcement officers will be criminally charged in the case. Womble, the elected district attorney for Judicial District 1, which covers seven counties of the northeastern part of the state, said that Brown was shot at by three Pasquotank deputies, whose actions were “justified because Brown’s actions caused deputies to reasonably believe it necessary to use force to protect themselves and others.” Womble began playing four body camera videos during the press conference, which was broadcast by several news outlets. Brown ignored deputies’ commands to stop and began to drive his car directly at one of the officers, Womble said. He said the first shot fired at Brown’s car went through the front windshield, not the back as was previously reported. The newly released portion of video was available online, and is graphic in nature. https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1394751010938183684?s=20 There is no telling if the explanation will satisfy police reform protesters, however, and Elizabeth City could see renewed protests in the coming days.

CDC Mask Guidline Confusion Demonstrated in Latest Polling

Americans just don’t seem to trust the CDC.

Published

Around the nation, businesses are reopening to full capacity, fans are filling the stadium stands, and bands are announcing their touring plans, thanks to the diminishing perception of a threat stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been a long time coming for Americans, and some carry with them a wee bit of trepidation still about the coming recovery. A new poll shows that many Americans are even having a hard time processing the CDC’s latest mask-guideline adjustment. A significant portion of the public still believes in wearing a mask outside regardless of guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to a recent survey. The survey indicates that forty-two percent of respondents believe everyone in their area should continue to wear a mask regardless of the CDC guidelines. Of the respondents, 39 percent said everyone should follow the CDC guidelines that state masks are only necessary outdoors when in crowds compared to only 19 percent of respondents who actually believe “everyone should do [what] they want regardless of guidelines.” And, somewhat surprisingly: Of those who believe in continuing to wear masks, broken down by party, the results were almost even; 36 percent of Republicans and 37 percent of Democrats want everyone around them to wear masks. Of course, the distrust that Americans naturally have for their government shouldn’t be overlooked either, as their handling of the coronavirus pandemic has spawned a number of protests and lawsuits around the nation.
