As Virginia Dems Threaten Gun Bans, Sanctuary Movement Spreads


Virginia’s “Second Amendment sanctuary” movement continued to see overflow crowds throughout the state on Thursday despite Governor Ralph Northam (D.) backtracking on confiscation and threatening “consequences” for sanctuary municipalities.

Eight Virginia localities became sanctuaries Thursday night, bringing the total to 93, including 75 of Virginia’s 95 counties and 18 of its legally independent cities. The movement—which pushes local governments to declare that they won’t enforce new gun laws they deem unconstitutional—has seen grassroots support from people of all backgrounds and ages in both rural and urban Virginia. It shows no sign of slowing, despite Northam promising a grandfather clause omitting preexisting owners from his proposed gun ban and threatening “consequences” for areas that become sanctuaries.

The continued momentum of the movement, especially in blue parts of the state, may weigh heavily on the new Democratic state legislature when it convenes Jan. 6. It has already forced Democratic leadership to abandon SB-16, a bill that would have completely banned possession of AR-15s and many other guns. As opposition continues to grow, newly elected Democrats may continue to shy away from the more radical parts of Northam’s gun-control agenda. read more

  1. well … they voted for this oppression

    it’s not like the D’rats hid their agenda

    (can’t understand why we’re so surprised when the D’rat do what they said they would do once they obtain power … & we roll over like puppy dogs & beg for belly rubs)

  2. Stay Strong down there, only because it would appear the new lexicon will become on the 2A?

    “As Virginia goes, we all go…”

    Take that, use that, send it out!

    @Molon Labe – they urban centers control the votes as in most large states in the legislatures. Look at the county 2016 MAGA Map.


  3. To quote that great United States’ movie, Patriot’s List, “It’s the same old tyranny, Oskar. They never mean it.”

  4. @ghost ~ I thoroughly understand the situation … the question is: what must be done? 75 out of 95 counties in VA do not want d’rat tyranny … what to do?

    if counties have enough fortitude to declare ‘2A sanctuary’ do they have enough to declare autonomy? declare separation? … got as much guts as western VA in 1863?

    what’s it gonna take? Virginia Government Troops going door to door? … that’s what they’re threatening today … what are they going to do tomorrow?

    (aside: notice how it’s always the socialist/progressives that threaten government violence? … soon, very soon, they will carry it out … ’cause they have the ‘large cities’)

  5. The karma of this is kind of fun. The demonrats started the whole ignore any laws you don’t like movement. Yet now they seem confused by people who are now defying their pet laws they want to pass to oppress people.

  6. “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

    … ’nuff said … shit … or get off the pot

  7. The first “shots” of the next civil war?

    Could very well be.

    You have to be NUTS to give up your guns to ANYONE in the government.

  8. Sanctuary cities are only right when WE do it! Your cities are only sanctuaries for HATE!

  9. When democrats win elections,they wield power like a five year old with a loaded gun. The result is lots of innocent people targeted ending in devastation and heartache. They are drunk with power.

  10. How can the whole STATE turn into a 2nd Amendment sanctuary, after “electing” all DEMOCRAPS?!?!?

    ANYONE check on Russian meddling/collusion with THIS election?!?!? 🤨

  11. Nearly every body I met or knew in Fairfax and Arlington counties had guns that they either talked about having or showed me during the five years of Elementary school in Arlington, three years of High school (Bishop J. O’Connel, W&L, and Yorktown) and during the four years working and living in Fairfax county in the 90’s. All my neighbors had guns. Never was there a casualty. And they are Democrats now? Must be the Truman/JFK kind.

  12. @Bob M,

    It’s a reaction after the fact. It shouldn’t have been necessary. People who should have voted Republican didn’t vote at all. There are 11 million people in Virginia. Almost 6 million are registered voters. 59% of those registered voters voted in 2018, results aren’t in for 2019.

    Do the people that didn’t vote think someone will do it for them? Pathetic.

    Despite being disgusted with many of my Representatives over the years, I vote in every primary, special election, and general election. It is a DUTY, not a right.

  13. “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun” is a phrase which was coined by Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong. I doubt the sentiment is ever far from what passes for a libtard’s mind.
    Ever notice that when government restricts your rights it’s “For your own good”?
