U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Today, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will consider banning firearms in certain public locations. Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to OPPOSE the proposed “An Ordinance Amending Chapter 6 of the Fairfax County Code, Relating to Weapons.” The meeting may be viewed by live stream online, and public comments may be submitted live over the phone. Click here for information on attending the meeting in person, viewing the meeting, or submitting live comments.

The proposed ordinance on page 626 of the agenda prohibits firearms, ammunition, and components in public buildings, public parks, and on public streets and sidewalks where, or adjacent to where, certain events are occurring. There are no exemptions for those with a concealed handgun permit or those simply transporting firearms in vehicles. This prohibition applies to both permitted events and events that “would otherwise require a permit,” making it extremely difficult for law-abiding citizens to determine or which areas might be or become “gun-free zones.” Individuals who live in an area where an event is occurring may not enter or leave their own property with a firearm. Because this ban includes “components,” citizens may find themselves in legal trouble for accidentally entering one of these vague “gun-free zones” with something as simple as a shell casing forgotten in a pocket or lost in a crevice of a vehicle.

Again, please consider opposing “An Ordinance Amending Chapter 6 of the Fairfax County Code, Relating to Weapons.”

Pre-emption has been reversed in Virginia. There are no more private sales without going through a background check. Localities can enact anything they damn well please. Virginia is now a lost State and anyone who thinks differently simply isn’t paying attention to reality.

Where is all the money coming from for the metal detectors that will be needed to enforce this, ‘cause that’s the only way they will know I have a concealed firearm. Like I said “when they outlaw guns, I will be an outlaw “

And the reason they are doing this is why? They had a concert and somebody whipped out a AR and killed allot of people? What is the reasoning behind this new law?

It must be that they hate peaceful protests from second amendment supporters that show up with guns and don’t fire a shot and are exercising their right to protest, that’s probably it.
Like my grandma who never cussed would sometimes say. It’s all going to hell in a hand basket.

While they are at it, I propose that they ban groups like Antifa and BLM from certain buildings and businesses. Wow, that was easy !!!!!
They will know that I’m a bad guy, when I wear my tee shirt saying “when they outlaw guns, I will be an outlaw “. There, made it easy for them again !!!
