U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Last Friday, lame-duck Governor Ralph Northam announced that his proposed two-year state budget will include allocating $27.4 million of your taxpayer dollars towards anti-gun propaganda to further attack Second Amendment rights.

The proposal seeks to establish a so-called Center for Firearm Violence Intervention and Prevention at the Department of Criminal Justice Services. It is true that Virginia has a problem with violent criminals, usually, repeat offenders, being allowed to roam society and not being held accountable for their actions, but Gov. Northam wants to focus on firearms and not on the criminals who misuse them. His press release even says that the Center will focus on “violence caused by firearms.” If it’s anything like other “research” that anti-gun extremists have pushed over the decades, it will peddle propaganda as science.

Rather than ask the General Assembly to pass meaningful legislation to get the criminals off the streets and hold them accountable for their actions, Gov. Northam wants this $27.4 million to extend his attack on the Second Amendment past his four years in the Executive Mansion. Fortunately, with his anti-gun majority in the House of Delegates also on its way out, he is not likely to get his wish.

The Virginia General Assembly will start its 2022 legislative session on January 12thPlease stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates.

Center for Firearm Violence Intervention and Prevention, the perfect vehicle for distributing taxpayer money to the gun prohibition groups, that funded (and will fund) the election campaigns of the Democrats.

So, is Glenn Youngkin going to take this out or not?

Is he REALLY our friend and ally or just another GOP pussy?

Black face Northam is just another communist that will be dealt with real soon when the civil war starts. The people of Virginia will have to make a decision between freedom or being disarmed by blackface .

I was surprised when George came out with his statements. There are not many in the entertainment business who would make those comments.

The club requires foot soldiers who are oblivious and are either the types who get off on demanding their authority be respected or are willing to be complicit for short and long term compensation.

There are a number of different types totalitarians.

When someone writes: “Start charging the turds who violate firearms laws and keep them jailed,” it brings into question their commitment to the issue of firearm rights.

When they come right out and indicate they would give a months pay to be an enforcer again so they could abuse the power entrusted to them by “civilians” to retailiate against a “civilian” with whom they have a difference of opinion on politics, it provides a clue.

the only part of drug enforcement I agree with is stop the gangs and pushers. Failed education system does more to create drug users than anything else. “teachers” that are more about indoctrination in to do as you are told society than helping students to grow and think on their own…..can you imagine independent thinking was a course in school, along with chemistry,psychics, biology not guess my gender
