So, while in Texas I had Governor Bush, who signed Texas’ concealed carry into law. Then I had Governor Perry, who was a solid ally of the second amendment, then came current Governor Greg Abbott, another pro second amendment governor. Now though Virginia has Governor Northam, who is into gun grabbing even more than he is into shoe polish. Cam Edwards at Bearing Arms sheds the light on Governor Northam’s veiled threats towards those who actually believe in natural rights like self-defense!
While several of Virginia’s congresscritters are calling for Second Amendment Sanctuary counties in the state to be stripped of state funds or to have the National Guard brought in to enforce new gun control laws, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is instead offering veiled threats of “consequences” for sheriffs in Second Amendment Sanctuary counties unless they enforce whatever gun control bills he signs into law.
When asked by a reporter if local governments would face retaliation for declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, Northam responded, “There’s not going to be retaliation. That’s not what I’m about. I’m about making Virginia safer.”
Northam continued, “If we have constitutional laws on the books and law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books, then there are going to be consequences, but I’ll cross that bridge if and when we get to it.”
Northam did not offer specifics on what the potential consequences would be.
Yeah, I doubt he would ever back up that rhetoric, and, hopefully, he can see well enough through that Blackface to see he is NOT on the right side of history
Funny how just a week or so ago the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement was “purely symbolic” according to gun control activists. Now that more than 80 counties and cities in Virginia have declared themselves safe havens for the right to keep and bear arms, they’re singing a very different tune. Too bad for the anti-gun crowd that Second Amendment supporters aren’t gonna dance to their song.
I am hopeful, and sure that our governor will focus on real issues and abandon Virginia Democrats obsession with trampling the constitution
