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.

Fauci Comes Right Out and Blames the Unvaccinated for Continued Pandemic

It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

Published

on

There has been an incredible amount of pressure being applied to unvaccinated Americans as of late, and it’s coming from all directions.  Media pundits are berating them, local and federal governments are targeting them, and businesses around the country are treating them like second class citizens. Now, to add insult to injury, one of the nation’s most well-known epidemiologists is blaming the unvaccinated for the recent uptick in COVID cases. Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Biden, said Sunday that Americans who remain unvaccinated against the coronavirus are “propagating” the latest outbreak of cases of the highly contagious Delta variant. “We have 100 million people in this country … who are eligible to be vaccinated, who are not vaccinated,” Fauci said in an interview with “Face the Nation.” “We’ve really got to get those people to change their minds, make it easy for them, convince them, do something to get them to be vaccinated because they are the ones that are propagating this outbreak.” In places such as Florida, where the local government has largely resisted restrictive coronavirus precautions, a new daily-case record was just reached on Saturday, besting the previous number that occurred back in January, before the vaccines were widely available. Of course, Dr. Fauci is not a popular man among conservatives and libertarians, who have largely suggested that the government should simply stay out of the way of We The People as it pertains to keeping ourselves safe.

Southern State Breaks Single Day COVID Record During ‘Delta’ Heyday

That can’t be good.

Published

Concerns abound in America today, as the coronavirus crisis’ latest surge has some wondering if the “third” and “fourth” waves we were talking about back in the tail end of 2020 were actually still part of the first wave. That’s because now, after 17-plus months of abject annoyance, the COVID-19 pandemic is back in nearly-full-swing. In fact, down in The Sunshine State, the delta variant is pushing the pandemic to new single-day records. Florida on Saturday reported 21,683 new coronavirus cases, its highest one-day tally since the pandemic started – and a 50% jump over the last week, according to health officials. Cases have ticked up around the country as businesses open up and the delta variant spreads but Florida accounts for around one-fifth of all cases in the U.S. Florida’s previous single-day record had been the 19,334 cases reported Jan. 7 this year before vaccines were widely available. Around 60% of Floridians age 12 and older are vaccinated, ranking it about midway among the states. The state’s governor was adamant about his method for tackling the virus, however. Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has resisted mandatory mask mandates and vaccine requirements and on Friday he barred school districts from requiring students to wear masks when classes resume next month. “A lot of these kids suffered under wearing these masks,” DeSantis said Saturday on Fox News’ “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino.” “There’s a lot of harms that come with it and I think we’re basically empowering the parents to be able to recognize what’s best for their kids and I think in most instances what’s best for the kids from the parents’ perspective is going to be going to school mask-free.” Further fueling this coronavirus resurgence has been Florida’s still thriving tourism industry, which brings Americans from all corners of the country to the…
