No one imagined Democrats would push the envelope this far.
But the Left has clearly lost its mind in the wake of Donald Trump’s election.
And now one top Democrat is about to set off civil conflict with this crazy move.
Democrats seized power in both Houses of the State legislature in Virginia.
With Democrat Ralph Northam in the Governor’s Mansion, Democrats are indulging in every Left-wing fantasy under the sun.
Democrats wanted to ban and confiscate firearms and so-called “high capacity” magazines.
One Democrat in the legislature even suggested calling in the National Guard to assist with confiscation.
And now with gun rights supporters set to stage a massive rally against Democrat-sponsored gun control bills at the Capitol on January 20, Governor Northam is banning firearms by declaring a state of emergency.
Northam’s decision comes just days before a January 20, 2020, pro-Second Amendment rally, which is scheduled to be held on Capitol grounds in opposition to Democrat-sponsored gun controls.
Nearly 120 local governments around Virginia have declared Second Amendment sanctuary status, making clear they have no intention of enforcing gun controls they view as unconstitutional.
But Democrats are pushing a ban on “high-capacity” magazines and suppressors, and are seeking to criminalize private gun sales via universal background checks. They also want to require all AR-15 owners to acquire a permit to own their rifles and plan to use permit issuance as a means of building a database with the names of AR-15 owners.
Whenever Democrats run for office they always take great care to say they won’t ban or confiscate firearms.
But as Virginia shows, not only are Democrats willing to take you guns away, they are willing to use soldiers to help them.
Northam’s decision to ban firearms on the Capitol grounds through an emergency declaration could spark a civil conflict in Virginia.
Many Virginians are wondering if President Trump will weigh in on Virginia Democrats’ all-out assault on the Second Amendment and use it to his advantage in 2020.
Virginia Citizens Defense League President Philip Van Cleave told reporters, “Gun owners are wide awake. Donald Trump is going to be the big beneficiary of this. He should be tweeting more stuff on it, taking advantage of it, activating his base.”
