Virginia Democrats prefer turning lawful gun owners into felons over punishing thugs who use guns to commit crimes

Ah, leftist priorities

Via Bearing Arms

While Virginia Democrats are merrily approving gun control laws aimed at the state’s legal gun owners, they apparently aren’t interested in focusing on violent criminals who use firearms in the commission of a crime.

HB 1175 would have increased the penalty for using or brandishing a firearm while committing certain felonies, which seems like a pretty common sense bill to me. Instead, members of the House Public Safety Committee rejected the measure on Tuesday, while approving a number of gun bills that are meant to restrict the rights of legal gun owners in the name of public safety.

Cam Edwards points out just how skewed the Democrats priorities really are

So they’re okay with making it a felony to continue to possess your 15-round magazine or to transfer a firearm without a background check, but the status quo is fine when it comes to punishing those who use guns in the commission of a crime. Think about that for a second. Ralph Northam, who believes himself to be a champion of criminal justice reform, would turn the vast majority of Virginia gun owners into felons with HB 961 while maintaining the current penalties for actually using a gun in a violent crime. The reform that Northam wants to enact would simply replace the war on drugs with a war on legal gun owners.

Northam would create criminals out of law-abiding Virginians, instead of ensuring that violent criminals stay behind bars for a significant period of time for their crimes, and the public safety

Again, we see what is really important to the left

Moms Demand Good People Disarm spokestool says Virginia protests were “temper tantrum”

So, defending your natural rights makes you a brat?

“All over the country – Red States, Blue States, Purple States – are more aware of gun violence,” said Laura Hudson with Moms Demand Action, in a phone interview.

Hudson says the demonstration in Virginia and pushback in Arizona won’t deter their efforts.

“It’s a temper tantrum because we’re trying to pass laws that will save lives,” said Hudson.

Well, madame, allow me to say your rhetoric is twisted, sick, and as wrong as can be. But all of that would be lost on you. I have come to believe that totalitarian starter kits like you deserve only one response. One that is but two words long. Care to guess what those words are?

Still waiting for the media to apologize to lawful gun owners

Remember truth is not a leftist value

Which is why leftists, like those who belong to what I call the Cult of Gun Control can lie so easily

Magpul donated 1,000 30-round PMags for the NRA to give out to those who attended the January 13th NRA rally at the Virginia State Capitol. Duane Liptak, Magpul’s Executive VP, is a member of the NRA Board of Directors. Bear in mind that a magazine ban is one of the agenda items for anti-gun Democrats in the Virginia General Assembly. A magazine ban, I should add, that has no grandfathering.

Giving out 30-round PMags was reminiscent of what Magpul did for rallies in Vermont in 2018 and in Colorado in 2013. In other words it was nothing new. Nonetheless, the gun prohibitionists at the Cult of Personality known as Giffords have their panties in a wad over this.

The goal of the left is, of course, to ultimately disarm Americans. It is their most treasured dream. After all, a disarmed society is all the easier to control. So, would any reasonable person ever think groups like the Gafford Gang would not lie to further their cause?

Gun rights advocates from around the country are urging armed protesters to descend on Virginia’s capital before the General Assembly’s first legislative session of 2020 to stop Democrats from passing gun-control bills.

The NRA is even getting involved by offering to hand out 30 round magazines to protesters for free if they show up.

A 30 round magazine was used to shoot this organization’s co-founder, Gabby Giffords, kill six people and injure 12 others in Tucson.

 Actually, no, as John Richardson points out

In Ms. Giffords’ case, the murderer in Tucson had a Glock pistol as his weapon of choice. He did have a Glock 18 knock-off magazine that jammed when he was reloading allowing heroic bystanders to end his rampage.

The killer bought it legally after passing a FBI NICS check. That he was able to pass such a check despite evidence of mental issues was due to the failure of school authorities to report his behavior and due to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department ignoring his actions. The latter was due to a friendly relationship between the killer’s mother and Sheriff Clarence Dupnik.

Actually, the Gafford Gun Grabbers likely know their claim is patently false, but, they do not care. They believe their claim can frighten folks into supporting “common sense” gun laws. They also believe their lie can paint those who are opposed to the liberty trampling laws being pushed down the throats of law abiding Virginians as dangerous radicals. And, yes, they know the media will never challenge them or point out their falsehoods. So, they lie, and lie, was, rinse, repeat

Virginia Democrats pass useless rule to fix problem that does not exist

Stuck on Stoopit!

For years, Virginians have been able to carry firearms at the state Capitol  in Richmond. So, in a bold move fraught with foolishness, the Democratic controlled legislature, has now banned such sinful acts

One wonders how Democrats in the Virginia legislature ever go to restaurants or movie theaters or grocery stores. Nine percent of Virginians have concealed handgun permits, and it is very likely that when they are out in public someone next to them is carrying a concealed handgun.

But as Democrats voted along straight party lines on Friday to ban people from carrying concealed handguns at the state Capitol, they worry, despite all evidence to the contrary, that there is a real danger to letting people continue carrying guns. This vote foreshadows Democrats’ opposition to allowing people to defend themselves and their loved ones.

Of course, I am sure Virginia House Speaker would channel her inner statist and tell is this is for our own good, right Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn?

While Democrat House Speaker House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn can’t point any problems in their state Capitol, she claims that this ban is necessary “to keep everybody safe.”

See, told y’all she has our best interests at heart, and has taken bold action to fix a problem that, not only does not exist in Virginia’s capitol, but any other state capitol either!

But it isn’t just that there hasn’t been a problem in Virginia where people have been able to carry for decades. There hasn’t been a problem in the other 22 states that allow legislators and/or civilians to carry guns on Capitol grounds.

Well, if you want to follow reason, I guess this is nothing but a band-aid on a cut that isn’t there. But, of course what Democrat would follow reason when they can pretend they are trying to “keep us safe”. Take Virginia Del. Dan Helmer who wants to ban gun ranges, yes, really.

Del. Dan Helmer, who represents parts of Prince William County, has introduced a bill to ban indoor gun ranges in buildings where more than 50 people work, a move that would likely affect the indoor gun range at National Rifle Association headquarters in Fairfax.

“Yes, this plan would affect the NRA, we also think it will save lives,” Helmer, D-40th, said about the bill in an email Tuesday.

Good grief the absurdity is dripping off of this foolish man. But, he digs deeper into the Pit of Foolishness

Helmer, a West Point grad and U.S. Army veteran elected in 2019, said his bill, HB567, is aimed at keeping Virginia workplaces safe in the wake of numerous workplace mass shootings throughout the country, including a mass shooting at a Virginia Beach municipal building in May 2019 that killed 12.

“This bill would make sure that we don’t have people bringing large quantities of firearms and ammunition into office builldings,”

The Virginia Beach shooting, of course occurred in a gun-free zone. But maybe Helmer thinks making gun-free zones, where the vast majority of mass shootings happen, will “save lives”. Being foolish does not make you a fool. Refusing to, at some point, grasp your foolishness and learn makes you a fool. Sadly, Virginia Democrats are on the road to being fools.

 

Virginia Democrats continue to piss on Mason, Madison, Washington, Jefferson, Henry and the right of self-defense

Then they came for your ARs, “high capacity” magazines, ammunition, gun ranges!

Del. Dan Helmer, who represents parts of Prince William County, has introduced a bill to ban indoor gun ranges in buildings where more than 50 people work, a move that would likely affect the indoor gun range at National Rifle Association headquarters in Fairfax.

“Yes, this plan would affect the NRA, we also think it will save lives,” Helmer, D-40th, said about the bill in an email Tuesday.

Could he say anything less connected to reality? When was the last time a gun range? How will this bill stop any evil person intent on shooting up a gun range. Again I ask everyone when that has happened, ever. But, Del. Helmer does not care about reality or common sense. That is predictable frankly, leftists live in alternative realities. What really disappoints is that Helmer attended West Point, and, seemingly learned nothing!

Helmer, a West Point grad and U.S. Army veteran elected in 2019, said his bill, HB567, is aimed at keeping Virginia workplaces safe in the wake of numerous workplace mass shootings throughout the country, including a mass shooting at a Virginia Beach municipal building in May 2019 that killed 12.

“This bill would make sure that we don’t have people bringing large quantities of firearms and ammunition into office builldings,” said Helmer aide Noah Bardash. “This bill would likely impact the NRA’s indoor range.”

Ah, that workplace was a GUN FREE ZONE! Maybe this bill would make these workplaces doubly gun free? 

One more question, why does this bill target ONLY privately owned ranges?

The bill would not prohibit indoor shooting ranges in buildings owned or leased by the state or federal government or at ranges where at least 90% of the users are law-enforcement officers.

Also note this nugget of privacy invasion in Helmer’s bill

The bill would also require indoor shooting ranges to keep a log of each user’s name, phone number, address and the law-enforcement agency where users are employed. It would also require all indoor gun range users to present a government-issued photo-identification card upon entry.

Things that make you go HMMMMMM

Noted dictatorial midget visits state he is trying to dictate to

Little Michael Bloomberg was here yesterday, telling gun owners to give their freedom away

Former New York mayor and gun control sugar daddy Michael Bloomberg was in Richmond, Virginia as the state legislative session kicked off on Wednesday. Bloomberg, who spent millions in the state backing anti-gun candidates in the 2019 elections, used his time in the Old Dominion to scold gun owners for the Second Amendment Sanctuary push in the state, and to urge them to urge them to turn in their guns to local police.

How about fuck you Bloomberg? Bloomberg basically tried to buy Virginia elections, and now, he is basking in his success. But he is sad because he knows most folks here simply are not into their rifles up

“It’s probably impossible to get all of those back. One can only hope that when people see the damage they can cause, and the danger of having them in their houses, they’ll decide to just take them to the local police station and say, ‘Please, get rid of this,’” Bloomberg said.

So, guns, in this case AR-15s are dangerous in your home? Millions and millions of Americans own them, and no harm befalls them, or their community. But, Bloomberg still wants to take them away, even though he still insists he is not pursuing that goal

“Nobody’s trying to take away anybody’s handguns … or rifles or shotguns,” Bloomberg said. “What we’re trying to do is have sensible gun regulations.”

And if you believe that………… Cam Edwards lays out the truth about what the types of laws Nanny Bloomberg is pushing will do to lawful gun owners

Bloomberg and the anti-gun lawmakers he funded are absolutely trying to take away people’s handguns, rifles, and shotguns (at least those that meet Northam’s definition of “assault firearms”) if they don’t register them with the state of Virginia. They’re demanding people get rid of their legally owned ammunition magazines and suppressors. They’re also trying to take away the right to purchase these items in the future. Is it really a right if I’m “allowed” to keep my AR-15, but someone who wants to buy that exact same rifle in August of this year will be told it’s illegal for them to do so? Of course not. They’re turning the right to keep and bear arms into a privilege.

Please go read the rest folks, this fight is so very crucial.
