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.

Save conservative media!

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Rashida Tlaib Forced to Repay Campaign Nearly $11,000 for Illegal Disbursements to Herself

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
