Shocker…NOT, Va Dem. Suggest Quid-Pro-Quo To Force Gun Control Compliance

BELLEVUE, WA – -(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.”

Well, then. The counties should reciprocate by withholding any taxes to the state. Keeping sales and income taxes within the counties might be difficult, but they may need to take a stand if they want to protect their rights.

The dumbocrats are going to end up starting a shooting war if they keep it up. Is there any way the second amendment sanctuary counties and withhold all funds from the state?

If so many of the citizens in Virginia are joining in the 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement, why don’t they ban together and have recall elections for the idiot Democrats who made it into office and petition to repeal the laws as the next logical step for them? Obviously, they have the numbers.

In many states, the big cities have more votes than the rural counties. That’s how the idea started.

It sounds like that Democrat should be impeached for ‘abuse of power’. When will they learn they are supposed to be working for us. God bless Virginia and the gun owners of Virginia.

Treason has a valid price. Delaying or depriving any American citizen of their right to keep and bare arms IS TREASON by definition. Wither the sentence is carried out by the courts or by the people the politicians are accountable to makes little difference. I would prefer the courts, that way it can be televised from proceedings through execution. Maybe then the traitors will stop — maybe. If not… I understand there are lots of trees in Va.

Arm up, carry on.

Unless those that seek to destroy America are prosecuted for their crimes against the people, these assaults will continue.
