NRA-ILA: Virginia Albemarle County Considering Gun Ban

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Earlier this week, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors considered a proposed ordinance banning firearms in certain public places.

File 21-320 prohibits possessing, carrying, or transporting firearms, ammunition, or components in or on county-owned or controlled buildings, parks, and recreation centers. There are no exemptions for concealed handgun permit holders or for storage in parked vehicles. Because this ban includes “components,” citizens may find themselves in legal trouble for accidentally entering one of these “gun-free zones” with something as simple as a shell casing forgotten in a pocket or accidentally left in a vehicle.

While the county “may approve and order implemented” security measures for these “gun-free zones,” nothing in this proposed ordinance actually requires them to do anything to keep disarmed citizens safe by taking measures to prevent armed criminals from ignoring such arbitrary boundaries.

NRA will continue to monitor this proposed ordinance. Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates.​

It fails constitutional muster. While public buildings with screening and safe-storage onsite are permissible, albeit a PIA, banning otherwise lawful concealed carry in parks and recreation centers are arbitrary and unreasonable. Eventually, the common understanding will get around to realizing that prohibitions of vetted, lawful carriers being armed in schools are ridiculous, and the ‘sensitive places’ nonsense is just that – nonsense. The plain fact is (and there’s no denying it; the SCOTUS will eventually come around to it) is that anywhere that an armed person bent on violence can enter with ease (which is just about everywhere) is a… Read more »

It is time to remove all Anti-Constitutional Communists from the
United States of America, considering we are a Constitutional Republic,
not a Democracy as they would like you to believe, with the rest of their lies…

We’re a constitutional republic, which is a form of democracy. This quick read should help clear up what is confusing to so many: https://act.represent.us/sign/democracy-republic/

A victim of the Virginia Beach spree killings, only the night before her demise, considered taking her gun to work. There was a friction between two coworkers, that she thought might erupt into a dangerous conclusion. She decided to obey workplace policy. In a recap of the event, a columnist related that the police response and their engagement of the killer, kept the killer distracted, thus saving lives. The columnist failed to realize, that had armed citizens been present, the killer would have been distracted much earlier, saving even more lives. Having grown up in an academic group-think environment, the… Read more »

That’s right! And let everybody know that criminal activity within Albermarle county will be met with no resistance from the county citizens because they are not allowed to exercise their constitutional rights. Just post a sign at the county line stating “Criminal activity allowed here, but no firearms”. That ought to make the county safe and secure for those living there, and visitors as well.

Similar to the passage of the No Gun Zone law in 1990, which banned guns in certain public places including public schools facilitated mass shootings. This law and others like it “enable and guarantees a successful mass shooting every time” by making everyone in no gun zones and public school system defenseless and easy targets. This law also guaranteed the shooters’ safety by making sure they alone had weapons during the carnage. Please notice that most shootings occur at public schools, this law does not cover private schools which have their own armed security. There have been no mass shootings… Read more »

There have been a number of public schools/ school districts which have locally rescinded the ‘gun free zone’ from their schools. I have yet to hear of a mass shooting at any of those schools. You can be sure if any one of those schools had a mass shooting, the lame stream media would be all over it.

It’s Virginia. They had preemption until the Democrats took control.

That’s why it has to be a Virginia Constitutional Amendment. As it stands now, every time the Democrats get control , they repeal the Preemption statutes that the Republicans put in place. Sea Saw laws, never know one election to the next if you’re a criminal.

The NRA needs to do less monitoring and lobbying. It needs to do more litigating and decapitating those who are legislating. The NRA needs find ways of removing corrupt members of Congress by getting them indicted.

How can NRA get corrupt congressmen indicted when LaPierre & his cronies should/may soon be indicted for misappropriation?

LaPierre is not the NRA and that is irrelevant to corrupt members of Congress being held accountable for violating our natural inalienable right to self-defense. My response is to the statement:
About NRA-ILA:

Begging members of Congress to do right is not the same as making them pay every time they do wrong.

LaPierre & his corrupt rubber-stamp board effectively ARE the NRA since so many glazy-eyed members mindlessly gobble their lies, dismiss anything negative, shoot the messenger etc. “Access” lobbying is begging, paves the way for corruption. Pro-lobbyists compromise or sell out their alleged cause for access, even on behalf of other special interests – including their own – quid pro quo. A membership group run by a clique is very susceptible to this corruption. It’s why NRA has long given phony A & B grades, endorsements, money & Orange Alert Cards to gun grabbing Democrats, RINO squishes & Do Nothings who… Read more »

Relocated P.S. NRA’s various forms of corruption are a major factor in the loss of Virginia to the commie-Dems, along with deluge legal & illegal immigration – which single-issue fools & “Libertarians” like former NRA director Grover Norquist & his toadies refuse to see as a critical indirect 2A issue. The single-issue parrot objection is absurd. NRA is supposed to & has been active in other indirect 2A issues including 1A. Election fraud is also a critical indirect 2A issue that NRA’s budget of $1B every few years should’ve gone to instead of corruption.

Don’t forget Florida’s Marco Rubio. He’s on the same path as the current Virginia Legislature.
Time to put “Ol Yeller” Down. That means any Dem, socialist libtard or swamp republican that does not follow the constitution.
They all need to be sent to meet Lucifer immediately. Your time is up, you a-holes.

State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance is one of their biggest employers, outside of the government. State Farm does not need your business.

I remember back in the 1990’s, a gun owner and avid shooter moved to the Chapin, SC area from up north. His business was heavy equipment and he put available resources to work building a nice shooting range on his property for himself, his family, and friends to use. One day, he was in the office of his (female) State Farm agent and casually mentioned that he had built a shooting range on his property. She went ballistic (pun unintentional) and canceled his homeowner policy. Word spread throughout the gun community in SC. Before long, gun people were canceling State… Read more »

Whether State Farm needs my business or not is pretty much irrelevant to the topic being discussed.
