Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam Attacks the 2nd Amendment and Loses…AGAIN

USA – -( Virginia Governor Ralph Northam took a second bite at the apple, in an effort to implement sweeping gun-control laws on the very people he represents. Here’s his list of policies and the comments he used to justify them.

“Assault Weapons” ban

We all know the Anti-2nd Amendment Radicals love the term “assault weapon” because it scares people who don’t know any better. They are the very people the gun-grabbers are speaking to. “Assault weapon” and “gun-violence” are the two most powerful terms fueling the anti-gun fear-campaign.

Bump stock ban

The idea is to qualify bumpstocks as “machine guns” and give authority to the ATF for determining important terminology related to the national ban on bumpstocks. This is hype at the State level to gain traction on the national level.

Suppressor ban

Why? Because it’s trendy again among the gun-grabbers. Accessory bans are part of the overall attempt to make future gun-ownership impossible. Oh yeah, they call them “silencers” so the anti-gun people will think killers will be roaming their neighborhoods killing people and no one will be able to hear it happening.

Magazine capacity limit

According to Northam, ten rounds is ok, but 11? Way too much. Another attempt to squeeze “accessories,” under the guise of “gun-safety.”

Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) aka Red Flag Law

Red Flag Laws are a way for Judges to sign off on household gun-confiscations without due-process and hand the authority over to police departments, based on nothing more than an accusation that the gun-owner may be a risk.

Universal Background checks

Of course, the Gun-Grabber’s claim is that Universal Background Checks will save lives. The truth is:

  • 90% of criminals avoid background checks
  • 95% of background checks denied are initially false positives (Good people being denied their right)
  • UBC’s pave the road for a gun-owners database (to be used later in conjunction with RED FLAG Laws.)
  • UBC’s create lengthy delays, preventing people who could potentially be in danger from protecting themselves.

Limit handgun purchases to (1) per month.

Read Dan’s new book, Good Gun Bad Guy 2.

Because, somehow, if you buy two, you are more likely to kill people. This policy is similar to Eric Swalwell’s “48 hour cooling off period for firearms purchases. The idea that limiting handgun purchases to (1) handgun per month would prevent bad behavior is an idea that lives in the minds of Anti-Gunners. By believing others would act dangerously with two handguns, the Gun-Grabbers may be revealing more about themselves than they realize.

This is a common projection that comes from the irrational gun-fear crowd that believes “guns make people do bad things.” This reveals their own dangerously volatile lack of physical restraint. Someone who thinks “anyone buying more than one handgun a month, makes them dangerous,” may have some deeper issues that need to be addressed.

Tougher penalties for having a loaded gun around a child.

This policy would lead to guns being locked up in safes or rendered useless, putting people in danger while in their own homes. The idea behind this policy is to protect the bad guys while using the “Toddler and the Gun” scenario to tug at the heartstrings of the angry anti-gun crowd. The Anti-2nd Amendment Radicals want everyone to believe that all across America, cute little diaper-bottomed babies are killing themselves with guns that their parents irresponsibly left loaded and laying around the house. This never happens, but it helps anger the anti-gun crowd. Remember, they care about babies so much, they will kill them after birth to stay in good graces with their political party while claiming to want to protect them.

Here are some of Governor Northam’s comments and my responses.

“None of these ideas are radical.”

WRONG. They are ALL radical because they violate the rights of Americans and put them in danger in an attempt to push a political agenda.

“None of them violate the 2nd Amendment.”

WRONG. They ALL violate the 2nd Amendment, and some of them violate the 4th, 5th, and others.

“None of them would impair any of my fellow Virginia hunters or sportsman.”

WRONG. Semi-automatic rifle ban, suppressor ban, magazine capacity limit, universal background checks and purchase limits ALL impair hunters and sportsman. If these policies were implemented, I’ll bet hunters and sportsman would no longer be Northam’s “fellows.”

Universal Background Checks have “90% public support.”

WRONG, unless the “public” surveyed were skinny jean wearing, latte drinking, friends of David Hogg. This is a strategy that works great on leftists because they are more likely to fall in line with “group-think.” They will do anything to be part of the “popular table” or the “90%” and avoid being an outcast. This type of strategy doesn’t work with Conservatives, but leftists haven’t figured that out yet. The hope is that by saying a policy has “90% support” everyone else will doubt their own position and get on-board with the majority. Gun-owners make up almost half of the American population, and this statement is designed to make you believe that they want to be added to database.

Governor Northam’s 2nd attempt at implementing these policies failed on July 9th, 2019, but will most likely come up for a vote again in November.

Northam is a disgusting human being. Blackface, race-baiting campaign ads, willing to withhold care from newborns so they die, using murdered people for political gain, and lying about the Second Amendment and Republican legislators.


Communists/socialists love anti-gun laws as did their mentors in the soviet union and in China, and North Korea. In the soviet union the politicians were backed up by the criminal element, even against the local police departments as was found out after the fall of the soviet union, the local police were always outgunned by the criminal element. It is to bad the leftist politicians in this country are starting to look like their mentors in the soviet union and the criminal element is being given a free pass by the left when it comes to gun laws. The leftist… Read more »


Since the dems openly advocate and support illegal aliens break asylum laws and Court Orders, what is good for the gander is good for the goose.

When the dems allow illegals to break the laws, what laws may the citizenry break with their approval?

Attacking the Second Amendment is the work of an evil politician. The following is the work of a statesman: Made in America Product Showcase at the White House Post Falls, Idaho On Monday, July 15, 2019, XXX Knives will participate in the third annual Made in America Product Showcase at the White House. “We are excited to once again host businesses from all 50 states at the White House to highlight and celebrate the Trump Administration’s commitment to American-made products,” a White House official said. “In today’s booming economy, we are proud to tout businesses that create jobs and support… Read more »


Now you wait just a minute. I’m an avid gun owner and I drink lattes and wear the occasional skinny jean.

@BV If your gun, latte and jeans are all made in America, then that is good enough for me.


What this nation needs is a background check on politicians and bureaucrats. Every one of these anti-Constitution liars must be disqualified from ever holding office based on their actions. They must be held accountable for the oath of office
they swore to follow because they continue to erode the Law of the Land without any consequence.

@MJ, Not a bad idea. Politicians have more capacity to harm people than any one person with a pea shooter. May have to do some modifying to the various state Constitutions and an amendment to the US Constitution.
