Petition To Impeach VA Governor Ralph Northam Has Been Started

No matter what you think about the current “impeachment” hearings against President Trump (which went along party lines in their committee votes) and the political circus that has become (has always been?), there is a legitimate use of the process of impeachment.

Now, in case you’re one of the many Constitutionally uneducated in America today, impeachment, in its legitimate usage, is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “to charge with a crime or misdemeanor, specifically to charge (a public official) before a competent tribunal with misconduct in office.” The idea is, if a government official does something wrong, then that official is impeached to start the process to remove them from office.

Well, now, there is an impeachment process in Virginia which makes sense (well, if you’re a Constitutionalist): Virginia citizens are working to impeach anti-gun Governor Ralph Northam. The petition at change.org reads:

Governor Ralph Northam has presented a state wide gun ban that would disarm law abiding citizens, infringing on constitutional rights granted by the U.S Constitution 2nd Amendment as well as Virginia Constitution Article 1 section 13. This kind of proposition is unconstitutional and should not be allowed. 

His plan for implementing and enforcing such a ban would be using local law enforcement and National Guard soldiers to gather guns. Doing so would also be taking privately owned weapons from the ones ordered to enforce the new law.

Law enforcement and the citizen soldiers have taken oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Governor Northam’s proposition to ban privately owned and registered weapons would violate such an oath.

Lastly, banning weapons only effects the law abiding citizen, criminals will always find a way to obtain a weapon to use to commit a crime. Disarming would only cause more innocent lives to be taken by the hands of a heartless criminal. 

A gentleman named Josh Bratton initiated the petition to be sent to the U.S. Supreme Court, Virginia State House, and Virginia State Senate. Because anti-gunners currently control the Virginia State House and Senate, it’s unlikely this petition will get any traction there, but, hopefully, it can get some action out of the U.S. Supreme Court, though, admittedly, this isn’t likely either as the court can’t initiate action, only rule on cases brought before them.

Still, maybe this petition will finally wake up those anti-gun nutcases currently running the Virginia State legislature so that the #VAGunRightsRebellion won’t need to take any further action.

  1. I COMPARE RALPH NORTHAM TO JOSEF MINGELE.THEY ARE BOTH ANGELS OF DEATH.I THINK HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED FOR ABUSING CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF VIRGINIANS.SHOW ME A PETITION AND I WILL SIGN IT.

  2. These people need to understand that the Constitution does not GRANT rights it is there only to insure that our god given rights are not to be intruded upon, if more people understood this then i think that a lot of the carp that is spread would be stopped in it’s tracks.

  3. Seems their could be a lot more added to this, such as violating the state constitution, making other laws infringing on the second amendment. For example limiting magazine size etc.and making capital grounds gun free for rally (against state constitution). I would think the more violations you can show, increases chance of success.

  4. They won’t be happy until we are left to the mercy of our enemies. Funny thing happens to human beings though, when a unexpected scary event happens like being mugged or seeing your loved one being raped, the human being wants to then be able to defend themselves. Then they realize, of course, that their new laws to remove guns from regular law abiding citizens has made it impossible to find a gun dealer since they all closed down. Now they gave break the law to own the ine instrument that could save theirs and their loved ones lives.

  5. I own Weapons and if they want to try to take them God forgive me for the sins that I will commit I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way so they should leave our 2nd amendment rights alone or the blood spilled will be on there hands

  6. Well you want to stop this we need to start with the schools. Like over in the middle East they teach the kids to hate the west well our own schools are doing the same hate our Country. There turning them into good Fascists.

  7. WhatGive state the right to change the constitution of the United States if we do not live by the constitution then we live by the Russian constitution that was neverFollowed.If you read the Russian Consultation In some aspects it is better than the US Constitution And you see how Russia Is.

  8. Your brother’s and sister’s around VIRGINIA are ready to back you up! Get the Telegram app I am @ Roberts65. The ADM I know how to get Richmond to capitulate in less than 2 weeks!

  9. Stop being an abiding citizen. There are laws that make sense and then there are those that are dangerous to your well-being and that of your family. Tyrants can only take over if we let them.

  10. Perhaps GOD intends that VA should be HIS test case in the struggle over 2nd Amendment rights. If, after 2 years of implementation, the crime rate in VA soars because the citizens are defenseless, they can then present this information to the VA Legislature, which will do nothing. But the legislatures in other States may notice. If, in addition to the soaring crime rate, a direct attack against pro-gunners in the VA legislature is made, by Antifa or other leftist groups, the situation will become clearer, but nothing will truly change until both the VA Legislature and Blackface Governor Northam are replaced – hopefully by being voted out of office.

    • You do know antifa was protesting the gun laws with right wing groups right? Not every leftist is anti gun. I identify as a centrist and i have some left wing policies i agree with and some right wing policies i agree with. The 2nd ammendment isnt left wing or right wing. Its there to protect us from tyranny regardless of the socioeconomic policies the current administration has in place

      • Jan – you might want to recheck that antifa was there – afaik there were NO reports of any of them showing up for the rally in Richmond. If they were there, it is the ONLY time they have been peaceful and not worn masks………………

  11. He needs to be removed from office. Our constitution is the backbone of our country and NO ONE has the right to make any changes to it!
