It’s a New Day In Virginia as Glenn Youngkin Signs Pro Freedom Executive Orders

Virginia – -(Ammoland.com)- Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed nine Executive Orders and two Executive Directives just hours after being sworn into office outside the State Capitol Saturday.

Prior to that, a pro-rights majority took the reigns of control in the House of Delegates as the General Assembly gaveled into session on Wednesday. Not much legislative work took place as the Assembly waited for the new statewide officeholders to be sworn into office.

Governor Glenn Youngkin’s actions and inaugural address, promise good things are ahead for Virginia. The Daily Wire described Youngkin’s address as a “Rousing Speech” that championed “Liberty” and a “New Day for Virginia”. While not mentioning gun rights, it was clear from his remarks that Youngkin believes deeply in the rights of individuals and that government needs to get out of the way and let the individual flourish.

In the General Assembly, there are a number of bills that have been introduced in the House and a couple in the State Senate to undo the restrictions placed on gun owners in 2020 and 2021. Many of those bills are awaiting assignment to committee.

There are very few gun ban bills as of today and the last day to introduce legislation is January 21. There is a bill to eliminate the ability of private citizens to build their own firearms (so-called “ghost gun” legislation”). VSSA’s legislative team will be at the Assembly every day of the session working to pass the many bills restoring our rights and defeating what is now less than a handful of bad bills.

There are no firearm-related bills on the docket in tomorrow’s Senate Judiciary Committee. VSSA will keep members informed of what is going on at the Assembly. You can track legislation by clicking here, and by following VSSA’s Facebook, Twitter, and Gettr feeds.

Constitutional Carry.
That is the only solution for Virginia.
The term should just be “Carry if ya wanna”.
It’s sad we have to use the term “Constitutional carry” The term for something that is unalienable in this country. 😉

For a very good tool to stay up-to-date on the legislation use VCDL’s legislation tracking tool at https://vcdl-lis.org/
There’s a lot more than this article is listing.

So far, 16 school districts have refused to implement his voluntary no mask for school children Executive Order.
Gee, who knew it was that easy to thwart a government mandate ?
Does the word “ sedition “ come to mind ?
Maybe the State can open their own “Special Committee “ to get to the bottom of this “insurrection “ by Democrat School boards .

That’s a lot of political theater with absolutely zero positive effect. Republicans have really gotten good at convincing their voters that they support the constitution while having to do absolutely nothing to actually prove it.

Good News! Virginia is trying to crawl out of the sewer from the previous administration.

Gov. Glenn Youngkin is a breath of fresh air. Just to think, Virginians had to suffer under the totally useless and depraved “Black Face.” Let’s hope that the new governor will restore the respect and rights that all Virginians deserve.

How many were even marginally related to RKBA?

Nada!

Gun owners are to Republicans as African Americans are to Democrats.

We can contribute money to their campaigns. We can campaign for them. But when the campaigns are over and the votes counted, we’re expected to sit quietly in the back of the tent until our money and votes are needed again.

You expected something in return?

Seriously?

Only hope, take out as many Blue-Light Federalist “Republicans” as possible in the primaries.
