Fairfax, VA – -( The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action's director of public affairs, Jennifer Baker, released the following statement on Tuesday in reaction to Gov. Ralph Northam's gun control proposals:

“Gov. Northam is following the gun control playbook by exploiting a tragedy to push his failed political agenda. The fact is none of the governor's gun control proposals would have prevented the horrible tragedy at Virginia Beach. If Gov. Northam is genuinely interested in pursuing policies that will save lives, he should focus on prosecuting violent criminals and fixing our broken mental health system, instead of blaming Virginia's law-abiding gun owners for the actions of a deranged murderer.”

    1. All ‘gun control laws’ are un-Constitutional.

      Article 6, U.S. Constitution “The Constitution…shall be the supreme law of the land”.
      Therefore, no legislative law, Executive Order or local decree may limit, deny,
      change or modify the Constitution. THAT is called the ‘Supremacy Clause’.
      Article 6 continues “All laws must conform to and be made pursuant to the Constitution”.
      Therefore, any legislative law, Executive Order or local decree not in 100% harmony
      with the U.S. Constitution, is null & void.
      Americans could own any firearm of any type they wanted until the 1934 NFA.
      The U.S. Congress fearing the WW1 veterans they screwed over, enacted the NFA.
      While reviewing the NFA, the SCOTUS noted “…you may not ban machine guns,
      grenades…and any other weapon of the soldier. American citizens must have
      access to these weapons to fulfill their Constitutional obligations”.
      Ignorance of the nature of the government as servant and not master, or just sheer cowardice
      and kneeling to governmental tyranny as ‘gun control laws’, is why we have politicians
      thinking they can ban anything and disarm the American People. Cowardly Americans
      refuse to stand up and defend their Rights.
      Look up April 19, 1775. THAT is how Americans treat ‘gun control’.
      It used to be called “Patriot’s Day” until democrats had it removed from publications.
      The American People are the ultimate power & authority in America.
      The People created governments. Governments exist because the American People allow it.
      Kneeling as slaves to gun control laws insure governments as master.
      “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots
      and tyrants”. Thomas Jefferson.

    2. Kill babies and take guns away from honest citizens. I am beginning to get the opinion that he favors criminals and low lives. There are just too many good people around and it ruins his image.

    3. “GUN FREE ZONE” are killing zones. The only way to STOP a bad guy with a GUN, is a GOOD guy with a GUN. 98% of Public Mass Shootings occur in “GUN-FREE ZONES”. The other 2% occur in areas that were immediately Adjacent To “GUN-FREE Zones” (such as Parking Lots or Streets just outside the building). How many people who died in this shooting or were working in this building that were CCH left their weapon outside to Honor this “Gun Free Zone”

    4. I was slightly heartened by the VA Speaker saying that the governor can call a special session but can’t dictate what they talk about and vote on. Then I see that most if not all the seats will be up for election next year and there are some soft spined types in the slim Republican majority. Even the good wife has expressed doubts they’ll go against Gov Blackface and she usually doesn’t comment on things like this. Sadly, my delegate is a democrat and will likely vote for gun control. He did get an earful from me when he visited our civic league a couple of months ago. Both he and Gov Blackface have letters on the way.

    5. Walk into a place where those there are armed, start shit and die.

      Walk into a place where those there are unarmed, start shit and kill, and kill, and kill, and kill.

      Those who advocate gun free zones have the blood of those unarmed victims on their hands, but of course they will deny such and advocate more restrictions!

    6. I wouldn’t trust Michael Jackson further than I could throw him.
      If there was ever a picture of a craven, self-serving, water carrying Democrat, this is it.
