Well, Michael Bloomberg and his pet toady in Virginia, Governor Ralph Northam, got a win under their belt this week. Yes, the Virginia legislature passed a law to mandate background checks on ALL firearm purchases, and there is little doubt that Northam is going to sign this one into law.
It’s amazing the foolishness that these people keep pushing for. Tal Axelrod gives us the infuriating details:
The Virginia state legislature voted Saturday to mandate criminal background checks on all gun purchases in the chamber’s latest effort to tackle gun control.
The measure passed both the Senate and the General Assembly and is poised to be reviewed by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) for signature. The legislature also passed a measure Saturday limiting anyone who does not have a concealed carry permit to one handgun purchase a month.
The state House passed the background check legislation by a 51-45 vote Thursday. The bill passed the state Senate by a 23-16 vote Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT
The two bills are part of a larger package Northam has backed. Of the eight measures, seven were passed by the state Senate, which killed a ban on the sale of assault weapons and ownership of high-capacity magazines.
Of course, anti-gunners were ecstatic about passing this legislation. Axelrod continues,
“I am so proud to finally see the passage of so many great bills this session that are going to save lives and protect Virginians throughout our commonwealth,” Del. Hala Ayala said in a statement.
“We promised to make Virginia safer from the senseless gun violence that has ravaged our communities. Promise kept,” added Eileen Filler-Corn, the Speaker of the Virginia state House.
Being proud of passing this legislation is like being proud of your puppy for pooping in your kitchen when you wanted him to poop in your backyard. And safer? This is going to do absolutely nothing to make anyone safer. Anyone who has studied the historical effects of gun control in context of overall levels of violence knows this.
But don’t confuse anti-gun politicians with logic, facts, and common sense. They don’t have any of those.
So, it looks like the #VAGunRightsRebellion is going to have some court cases to file to get these ridiculous laws overturned and to keep their 2nd Amendment rights.
Isn’t there a Federal Background check all ready in place? Seems I’ve had to go through that on most of the modern guns I’ve bought.
This will simply force this state to find private sales outside of the state and purchase their guns under the radar. This is simply forcing law abiding citizens to become law breakers will maintaining their constitutional rights.
I don’t know where these folks get their info. ALL gun shows in Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee require background checks and all pawn and commercial entities require background checks. I will sell guns without a full background check because of the cost, I will run a personal check online to make sure they can purchase legally so I am not sure if this is simply a revenue maker or a desire to lose their office by election. I guess we will see how many gun owners are paying attention.
The law is moot because if I remember correctly Va does not require the registration of fire arms. I know I never had to register mine. But they my have changed the law. So How does one enforce such violations of private trade among non FFL’s?
Entrapment? Only useful when they can”t find anything else to prosecute some one with? I left that Commonwealth because of draconian police state actions taken by authorities.
The one hand gun a month law used to be on the books when I was a teenage, and it was passed to please NY’s complaint that a Virginian could buy multiple hand guns then travel to NY and sell them on the street . Unfounded of course but Dems will use any lie to accomplish their goals.
Well Virginian you got screw! How about your first amendment rights? Guess you fool still have not learned a thing in life! Please don’t move any further SOUTH! We don’t want people who don’t stand up for the CONSTITUTION LAWS. All those foreigners in northern Virginia sure love to live as a slave to the governor!
What is guns safety house speaker of Virginia? I can bet you your job that you can’t explain it! Tell me what you going to do about BLACK MARKET? If you don’t have a clue. Go ahead and resign! To you people of Virginia you are a FOOL! Got your second amendment right took away. Now your first will follow!
People will just lie and say purchased the firearm before the law was passed. So much for their legislation. And the democrats are just a bunch of lieing A holes. All of this will be overturned when the democrats lose in the next election after the crime rate increases from their stupid murdering legislation.
The black market – or “Parallel Market” just got bigger. It was called “Parallel Market” in France back around 1960. Same kind; high prices but aone could even buy a SMG.
Actually, the lawmakers who ***pass*** KNOW all of this and could recite it all word for word. That is what they want. The Dems look on what is happening as an excuse to turn us into a socialist dictatorship under their control.
Absurd..total nonsense..almost as ridiculouse as the empty hospitals i have gone to…im not sure why so many buy any of this nonsense..im taking NO test..NO vax..im not wearing a mask ever..and as far as anymore gun laws? They have all commited treason in my opinion and all need to be locked up..and face the penalty for treason.. i dont care what they threaten..its all treason..from ralph nonsenstrom to donald dump..all guilty…
that northam should be removed for not upholding his oath to uphold the const. of the us.he should be arrested and jailed if not by law officers then by the people by force if needed not keeping our const. is treason punishable by death!!! come on people???
Does this background check-in Viginia include all gang members,and criminals,and illegals.
No they are exempt, especially the illegals.
The Socialists , Fascists and Communists that have relentlessly attacked our Constitution and Bill Of Rights for over 100 years are using the words Universal Background Check as a scheme to create a Gun Registry which is illegal , Gun Owners Protection Act of 1986 , But they are doing it anyway Federal Law will not stand in their way , They are counting on their Useful Idiots and the Ignorant to shove this Unconstitutional Pretended Legislation down our throats and hope no one notices or will fight back , They know that out of the 26,453 Gun Control Laws on the books not a single one has ever prevented a crime or murder , Every Dictator , Tyrant , Fascist , Socialist , Communist and Despot in history has known that before He is able to wield Power and have Control first One has to disarm Ones Victims
How did these fools get voted into office? It shows the mentality of Virginia voters.
Keep those guns you will need them soon enough!
our govt takes an oath to uphold our const.and protect the people and borders and when they dont do that its treason punishable by death!!! wake up and enforce there rules people
Charles, please don’t judge Virginians fight against gun controls by this vote. You are right about northern Va. population. Four counties in northern Va. control the entire state. They are all government liberals with no common sense, just a communist wish list. We are 85% rural communities. They out number us and have people like Bloomburg dumping millions into changing laws. Don’t forget, the N.R.A. is headquartered in Va. and we still lost the vote.That doesn’t leave many options for getting rid of these communists, does it?
This is a clear violation of the 14th Amendment clauses relating to “privileges and immunities” and, more specifically, “due process.” 2A Virginians need to sue the State, because the 14th Amendment binds the States to adhering to the first 8 Amendments to the Constitution, which limit the Federal government’s intrusion and limitation of citizen rights; also, passing these laws – under the haze of Covid19 – is a clear violation of Virginian’s civil rights as it relates to due process. Why is no one – Virginians, NRA, and other pro 2A groups and organizations – not pursuing this path?
