U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today said Virginia state lawmakers who threaten to withhold state funds from “Second Amendment Sanctuary” counties that refuse to enforce gun control laws that pass in Richmond are “practicing world-class hypocrisy.”

“After weeks of rhetoric about alleged ‘quid pro quo’ efforts by President Donald Trump to force the Ukraine government to investigate a political rival or risk losing U.S. aid, it is dumbfounding that a Virginia lawmaker would suggest essentially the same thing,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “The hypocrisy is stunning.”

The Washington Examiner reported that Democratic Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin “suggested cutting off state funds to counties that do not comply with any gun control measures that pass in Richmond.”

“Anti-gun Democrats can call that anything they want,” Gottlieb observed, “but it equates to the kind of political blackmail their Capitol Hill colleagues have accused Trump of committing. Apparently, strong-arm coercion is okay so long as it’s a Democrat who’s doing it.”

Seventy-eight Virginia counties have reportedly adopted “Second Amendment Sanctuary” resolutions, infuriating incoming Democrats who are threatening to pass all kinds of restrictive gun control measures in 2020.

“These anti-rights extremists aren’t even trying to disguise their intentions anymore,” Gottlieb stated. “What was once the party of gun control has become the party of gun confiscation and social bigotry. Where they were once apprehensive about gun control, now they are arrogant. They despise gun owners and they’re determined to reduce a constitutional right to a heavily-regulated privilege. They will punish anyone who stands in their way.”

Democrats will consider bans on so-called “assault weapons” and original capacity magazines, revive the failed one-gun-a-month restriction, expand background checks, and institute other gun control schemes. They won the legislature with help from a $2.5 million expenditure by Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund.

“The saddest part of this,” Gottlieb concluded, “is that nobody should really be surprised. When anti-rights extremism replaces sensible governing, diplomacy gives way to demagoguery and nobody benefits.”

While the idiot says cut off funds to the counties that don’t comply. My understanding is that the monies come from the counties that they pay to support the state government. So, if I were in a county I would stop paying the tax’s and fee’s that the counties pay in to support the State. I think that would bring the State Government to a halt in a hurry. The other thing I have heard mentioned is using the National Guard to enforce their gun control bills. Just where does the State going to draw the solders from??? I know… Read more »

THEY don’t see it as hypocrisy in their case. They see it as a VIRTUE! We will take away your funding…blah blah. Can someone tell me…which came first? Counties or states? Seems to me that the COUNTIES can withhold a LOT from the States.

Note that efforts to block Federal funds from “sanctuary cities” that defy Federal law on illegal immigration enforcement were almost immediately blocked by “judges” on the Left.

Only the rights and laws Democrats like are okay to enforce, and the ones they don’t like should be altered or changed to suit the current Democrat version of Political Correctness. It’s okay for liberals and Democrats to protest and proclaim cities to be illegal alien sanctuaries and not allow the law to be applied to those places, but it’s not okay for cities/counties to proclaim themselves 2nd Amendment Sanctuaries and the “laws” need to be enforced in those cities/counties. The hypocrisy of liberals and Democrats is amazing and the stupidity of the American public not to recognize it is… Read more »

Even a mouse will come out swinging when it’s cornered. The state seal does have it’s backings in history. Strange how history repeats itself. It looks like history is about to repeat itself again. Denying or delaying an American citizen their GOD given, constitutionally protected right to keep and bare arms is, by definition, treasonous. That goes for legislators, judges, courts, enforcement personnel and those who finance them. Treason has a price, a legitimate, legal and a most final price. The price, the cost, the payment for treason is death. It would be best if this went to the courts… Read more »

build a trapdoor into the gallows platform. Then they won’t need that box. Judicious use of the other four boxes will preclude the need for the last one. I wonder how differently Virginia’s election would have gone nad EVERY gun owner in the state cast their ballot, back at the primary, and again at final. I know in my state a yeara go, only 23% of gun owners showed up to cast a vote against the stupid Bloomburg anti gun bill that carried. Had even half of the other 77% votd, that nasty BloomTurd would have not become what passes… Read more »

Hypocrisy is just one of thier trademark qualities and they are not “anti-gun” because they have no intention of surrendering thier guns it is only Americans guns they demand be surrendered. They are “anti-rights” aggressors subverting the will of We The People and a rope can fix this.

And as for the foothold…heck it started way back at the war for Southern Independence when the traitor in chief Lincoln did away with habeas corpus and fought a war to “save the union” which in the long run has not saved it in the least except for in word. There is still a large cultural rift between the north and south. I hear it every day where I live just in conversations. Then with the passage of the Dick Act in 1903, the Federal Reserve monetary ponzie scheme in 1913..the sneaking in of all 10 planks of the communist… Read more »
