Just last week we reported that a number of counties in Virginia had voted to become gun sanctuaries in response to the crazy proposed gun control laws that the new Democratic regimes seems hell-bent on implementing.
When we first reported about this last week, the number of gun sanctuary counties was at thirty. Then, the number was revised to eighty. Now, nearly 100 counties in Virginia have decided to become gun sanctuary counties. AWR Hawkins writes,
The November 5 elections were pivotal inasmuch as they gave Democrats a majority in the Virginia legislature. Democrats will take their seats in early January 2020, at which point they are expected to embark on a war on guns.
On December 15, Breitbart News reported that 90+ counties and municipalities had reacted to the threat of more gun control by declaring Second Amendment Sanctuary status. In the county of Rockingham, over 3,000 pro-gun residents showed up for the board of supervisors meeting and broke out into cheers and applause when Second Amendment Sanctuary status was declared.
Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins took a stand for his county, warning state-level legislators that he is ready to “deputize thousands” of residents in order to defend gun rights.
The Roanoke Times reports that Pulaski County declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status on Monday night.
Pulaski’s declaration brings the number of Second Amendment Sanctuary declarations to “nearly 100.”
On December 12, Breitbart News reported Gov. Ralph Northam (D) vowing “consequences” for counties that refuse to enforce gun controls.
When you consider that there are 95 counties and 38 independent cities (which are kind of the same thing as counties in Virginia), this basically means that two-thirds of the state (68%) has already rejected gun control, yet the new Democratic governor and legislature are threatening to unconstitutionally take away counties’ right to nullify laws which should not be enforced.
This situation just keeps heating up, and, at this rate, we could end up with a Virginia gun rights rebellion on our hands.
This is going to be a situation to watch.
