New Gun Control Bill Passed By Virginia Democrats Once Again Tramples All Over The Second Amendment

(Tea Party PAC) – Democrats in the state of Virginia just aren’t getting the message when it comes to gun control, as they have once again passed a piece of legislation that is going to fire up — no pun intended — the Second Amendment crowd, as it violates the rights of gun owners across the state.

The new law, passed by Virginia’s House of Delegates Public Safety Committee, makes it a felony for anyone to own a suppressor in the state after July 1, 2020. This felony charge includes all supressors, even those that were legally purchased through background checks and are registered with the ATF.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

The Washington Examiner reports the ban is expected to pass in the full Democrat-controlled House of Delegates. The opportunity to stop the ban will occur in the Senate, where a few Democrats have expressed hesitancy to support bans on firearms or certain accessories.

For example, on January 29, 2020, Breitbart News reported Virginia State Sen. Lynwood Lewis (D) made clear he will not support a magazine or firearm bans. He indicated his focus in solely on strengthening laws that deal with access to firearms, not laws that prohibit certain firearms or related hardware.

The bill that bans suppressor possession also bans “high capacity” magazines, making it precisely the type of legislation Lewis said he would not support.

Gov. Ralph Northam (D) made his plans for a war on guns clear in early November 2019 and has not relented. Since then Virginia Democrats have put forward legislation criminalizing private gun sales and punishing gun owners for not reporting stolen guns within 24 hours. They have also introduced legislation banning certain ammunition magazines, suppressors, and requiring owners of certain rifles to acquire a license from the state police.

Virginia Democrats are also pushing legislation to mandate that law-abiding citizens are not allowed to buy more than one handgun a month.

There has been a lot of backlash concerning the gun control nonsense the state of Virginia has attempted to pass, as the vast majority of citizens have made it clear they do not want their right to bear arms infringed upon, which is precisely what the Second Amendment protects them from.

Yet, like most leftists, the Democrats in the state government are ignoring the will of the people and the Bill of Rights, totally opting for big government intrusion to unarm the populace.

It’s really hard to get a people who own firearms to go along with your socialist programs, so that’s why removing guns from the hands of law-abiding citizens is so important to the left. It’s all about consolidating power in the hands of the “elite” who know what’s best for us.

At the end of the day, all this does is leave folks vulnerable, not only to tyranny, but to the wiles of violent criminals. Gun control legislation has never stopped a mass shooting or any other gun violence. You know why? Because bad guys don’t follow the law. That’s the whole point of them being bad guys.

Why create more victims by stripping away a person’s rights to own a weapon? It just doesn’t make sense.

  1. sup·pres·sor
    /səˈpresər/
    noun

    1.
    a person or group that deprives others of power or prevents something from happening:
    “suppressors of free speech”

    Here is the definition of a suppressor. Doesn’t that mean that we can’t own a democrat ?

  2. Languages evolve over time as users apply new uses and meanings to older words. English is one of the most dynamic and adaptive modern languages on earth. “The United States and Great Britain are two nations separated by a common language” is an old joke that has been, and is still, true. It is easy, then, to imagine the differences that have evolved between eighteenth century British English and twenty-first century American English.
    For effective communication to occur between two parties, it is essential for both parties to speak and understand the same language. For this reason, I have used definitions from an eighteenth-century British dictionary in this presentation because the Framers of our Constitution spoke and wrote in eighteenth century British English. Since we cannot talk to the Framers, we must learn to listen to what they are actually saying to us today in their language.
    There is an inherent lazy, self-serving and deceptive practice among politicians of all stripes as well as those persons with self-serving agendas to try to apply contemporary definitions to writings that are almost two hundred and fifty years old. Such short cutting cannot be tolerated when examining documents as serious as the Constitution of the United States of America. This discussion will begin with the first ten amendments to our Constitution, collectively known as the Bill of Rights. Eighteenth-century British English definitions follow in parentheses..
    The Bill of Rights, (that which justly belongs to one, an immunity). A right “justly belongs” to an individual citizen, not “granted” by another. It is “immune” to revocation.
    The Second Amendment States:
    “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the Right of the people to Keep and Bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
    “A well-regulated (to adjust by rule or method, to direct skillfully, properly) Militia, (Citizens who are trained in the use of the same weapons as the Regular Military, and expected to provide their own weapons.) This is NOT the National Guard which is defined as an Organized Militia and is a permanent Corp in the pay of the government. The “Militia” referenced by the Framers is the Unorganized Militia, which consists of all civilian males (females are now included) of military service age. It is important to point out that this first clause is a subordinate clause and is entirely separable from the rest of the sentence which stands alone and is complete within itself. The overarching intent of this amendment is that the “Right of the people to Keep and Bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
    “being necessary to the security of a free State, the Right (see above) of the people (those who compose the community, the commonality, not the princes or nobles, in other words, INDIVIDUALS) to Keep (to retain, not to lose, to have in custody) and Bear (to carry as a burden) arms (weapons of offence or armour of defense), shall not be infringed (to violate, to break laws or contracts).”
    It is clearly evident that the Framers of our Constitution intended, for the security of a free State, for citizens to be armed with, and trained in the use of, weapons currently in use by our military services. “FOR THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE, not just for hunting or “sporting purposes,” but to ensure that citizens forever maintain the ability to ward off a government that is turning itself into a dictatorship. Any attempt to disarm free citizens is a VIOLATION of the CONSTITUTION and is, at the very least, grounds for removal from office of the offending party (singularly and collectively). Especially since upon taking the oath of office they swear to support and defend the Constitution.
    Laws that inhibit the ability of law-abiding citizens to obtain those weapons required by the Framers do not inhibit lawbreakers, since ignoring laws is their stock in trade, but, rather, infringe on the Constitutional, irrevocable rights of law-abiding citizens.
    As a conscientious citizen and supporter of our Constitution, are YOU willing to accept YOUR duty and obtain, and develop a facility in the care and use of, an AR-15 that is similar to that in current use by our military and to vote out of office any elected official who tries to legislate away YOUR rights enumerated in our Constitution?
    If you lose your right to defend yourself, you become, not a Citizen, but a Subject and your right to free speech will become your next loss. The illogical burden of Politically Correct speech that is being imposed upon us is the first step toward that goal.
    LIBERALS will hate this message and PATRIOTS will love it!

    • All these democRAT communists are doing is begging for a court case which will eventually overturn / eliminate the laws passed by these communists. It just costs the citizens millions in legal fees. Every time one of these laws is overturned the court overturning them should also apply a “with prejudice” component ordering the legislators to pay all the legal fees they caused. If they can’t or won’t pay they should be imprisoned for a very long time. Every state needs to put this solution in place to stop the nonsense by politicians altogether. People that cause frivolous law suites need to be punished.

  3. Write POTUS Trump and AG Barr and report the infringement. They are moving on the Sodomite turf of California. It is time to notify them and then the citizens who actually appreciate the Constitutional Rights need to stand up and be made known. You’ll see other US citizens (Patriots) come along side if you’re serious for yourself, family, and outside loved ones.

  4. Must be a control thing. The alleged purpose–protecting people from getting killed–is illogical because the premise is wrong. A would-be criminal will get a gun illegally if he cannot do so legally. And if he is unable to do so illegally this does not necessarily mean he will then feel obliged to abandon his goal of doing harm. Guess what–that leaves knives, poison, bombs and automobiles, etc. as the next option(s). So, the main result is millions of innocent gun owners are deprived of their constitutional rights.
