A whopping 90 percent of county governments in Virginia have now openly declared resistance to the Democrat-controlled state legislature’s upcoming assault on the Second Amendment.
With the start of the new year, the Virginia Democrat Party will be in full control of both houses of the legislature as well as the governor’s mansion and Democrats have made no mistake that their main goal for 2020 will be to enact a long list of extremely strict gun control laws — including bans and confiscation — that will make owning a gun very difficult.
But since the elections last year, county after county began announcing that they intend to refuse to enforce any strict new gun laws that the state legislature might try to enact after the Democrats take control.
And now, fully 90 percent of the Commonwealth’s county governments have said that they will not obey the state legislature.
On Tuesday, the 101st county joined the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement when Stafford County voted itself in.
Stafford County is now a sanctuary! That’s the last for tonight and number 101!
— Phil Van Cleave VCDL (@VCDL_ORG) December 18, 2019
Virginia has 95 full counties and 15 independent cities, so that means almost every part of the state is now a gun rights sanctuary.
“It’s an organic thing that just took off after Election Day. Elections have consequences, and this is the result. This has truly rocked the conservative, libertarian group’s core. It has really shook a lot of them awake. They are fully awake,” Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins told the Washington Examiner.
The editor of Bearing Arms, Cam Edwards remarked that the effort has served as a national model that has spread to nine states.
Chairman of the Prince Edward board of supervisors says there are at least 550 people in attendance, and says supervisors have a “pretty good idea” of how the residents of the county feel.

Advocate Scott Jenkins added that this movement is not one led by powerbrokers — not even the NRA — but is a movement of the people.
“They are the ones you don’t hear from. They’re not going to speak out at the board meetings or polling places and write editorials. They’re the everyday man who is focused on raising a family, going to work, and trying to live a good life and be a good citizen, and they see this as people who have no knowledge of what they’re family means when it comes to protection or the bearing of arms, nor can they relate to their culture of hunting or sport shooting or anything about them, and yet they want to come from their urban areas … and they drive to Richmond, where they want to implement these laws where the vast amount of Virginia is going to be affected by it even though they have not done anything wrong,” Jenkins said.
This movement is unprecedented, for sure.

Lying Media Desperately Hoped Virginia Gun Rally Would Turn Violent
A review of coverage of Monday’s rally in Virginia by the fake news media shows they desperately hoped there would be bloodshed.
A review of coverage of Monday’s Second Amendment rally in Virginia by the fake news media shows they desperately hoped there would be bloodshed.
Extremist, left-wing cable network MSNBC led the way on Monday morning’s coverage. Just as rally goers were gathering, the extremist “news” network labeled the participants as dangerous terrorists who were sure to begin killing people by the scores.
MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin started out by falsely labeling the rally in Richmond, Virginia, as being attended by “armed militia,” and “white nationalist groups from all over the country.”
This is a flat out lie.
Still, he rambled on saying, “This is the scene in Richmond. Armed militia, white nationalist groups from all over the country taking part on MLK day.” He added that state officials “fear a dangerous confrontation.”
In another segment this liar gasped that “Right now, thousands of guns rights activists, white nationalists, militia groups all swarming the Virginia state capitol in Richmond.”
This garbage was typical of the media’s coverage of the day’s rally. But as it turned out, not a single negative incident occurred. All that happened was real Americans turned out to denounce Virginia’s elimination of American Second Amendment rights.
Others in the media were just as bad. Check out this montage of some of the worst offenders:

Oh, and the accusation that the rally was just a “white nationalist” rally? This black man who attended sure did not think so:

— Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) January 20, 2020
But once the rally went off without any of the violence, mayhem, arrests, and bloodletting that the liberal media wanted, that same media was sure annoyed by the law abiding gun owners.
Black 2A Supporter Has A Few Choice Words For MSM Who Characterized Gun Rights Rally As ‘Racist’
“Mainstream media be damned.”
An attendee at the Richmond Virginia gun rights rally today dispelled the MSM smears against rally-goers.
He says the media is mischaracterizing them, & that they are just law-abiding citizens who want to advocate for their constitutional rights.

“Every news piece you’ve seen this weekend, they’ve always brought up the issue of race, as thought its nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here that care for the Second Amendment,” said the man.
“When actually, black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans, in general, care about the 2nd Amendment,” the man continued. “I work at a gun store part-time and I can’t tell you the number of customers I see of all races, all colors, all creeds, who care about the 2nd Amendment and who just want to peaceably, live their lives, enjoy their rights, and their 2nd Amendment.”
This is outstanding to see fellow Americans stand up for our rights black, white, brown, or yellow it makes no difference we are all patriots at heart.
Fake News MSNBC is calling #VirginiaRally goers “white nationalists” on national television.
I’m sorry, but defending your Second Amendment rights from a usurpative government is not racist.
It’s called being an American patriot.

It was reported the attendance at the rally was about 22,000. Did anyone see the violence that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and the MSM predicted? Neither did I… So who’s the greatest fear monger: President Trump or Governor Northam?

MSM Hypes Fake News About Gun Rights Rally
Not only no violence, but those at the rally also picked up the place, leaving it cleaner than when they arrived! Leftists could learn a thing or two from conservatives.
The MSM wanted some violence to break out at the Virginia gun rally but were sorely disappointed that people who support the Constitution and who were NOT “white nationalists” didn’t comply with their hopes.
Here the montage:

Trump Rips “Mini-Mike” Over His Remarks Trashing Texas Church Hero
Remember Mike, when seconds count, the Police are only minutes away…
President Trump ripped “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg for his offensive attack on the Texas church hero Jack Wilson and the “average” American gun owners.
Seconds after a gunman open-fired at a Texas church, a good guy with a gun stopped him. Jack Wilson is the “average” American Bloomberg thinks should be disarmed.
— NRA (@NRA) January 3, 2020
Now Mini Mike Bloomberg is critical of Jack Wilson, who saved perhaps hundreds of people in a Church because he was carrying a gun, and knew how to use it. Jack quickly killed the shooter, who was beginning a rampage. Mini is against the 2nd A. His ads are Fake, just like him!

Texas Gunman Tries to Shoot Up Church, Is Taken Out by Armed Worshipers in Seconds
A dead monster in Texas tried to shoot up a church with a gun but after opening fire, armed churchgoers took him out with return fire.
A dead monster in Texas tried to shoot up a church with a gun but after opening fire, armed churchgoers took him out with return fire. The incident lasted only about six seconds.
The video of the incident is amazing for how quickly the shooter is identified, confronted, and shot down:
Texas Church Shooting livestream video shows a person returning fire and killing the gunman.
— OculusINT (@OculusInt) December 29, 2019
Unfortunately, the creep killed two worshipers at the West Freeway Church of Christ in the Fort Worth, Texas, suburb of White Settlement. But the killer was also taken out in seconds preventing him from doing even more damage.
The incident occurred at 10:57 on Sunday morning and was caught live on the church livestream of its weekly service.
Witnesses said that the killer entered the church wearing a fake beard, and sunglasses and began his attack after taking communion.
Three victims were taken to the hospital, one died on the way, and a second died while being treated.
The shooter was also pronounced dead at the scene.
“Our hearts go out to the victims and families of those killed in the evil act of violence that occurred at the West Freeway Church of Christ,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a public statement. “Places of worship are meant to be sacred, and I am grateful for the church members who acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life. ”
The FBI noted that an investigation is underway:

Thanks to an armed churchman, the attack lasted only six seconds, White Settlement Police Chief J.P. Bevering said.
“The suspect is deceased, and the threat has stopped thanks to the heroic action of those two parishioners at the church,” Bevering told the media.

Virginia Democrats Want Law to Use Credit Card Records for Stealth Registration of Guns
Virginia Democrats want to force banks and credit card companies to turn over data on gun purchases so that Democrats can track gun owners.
In yet another unconstitutional attack on the Second Amendment, Virginia Democrats want to force banks and credit card companies to turn over data on gun and ammunition purchases so that Democrats can illegally track gun owners.
Rep. Jennifer Wexton, D-10th, has filed a bill that she claims is only necessary to stop mass shooting, but would instead serve as a way to track all gun owners.
Wexton’s bill would require the state Treasury Department to use credit card data to track sales of things she claims will give clues to money laundering, fentanyl trafficking and human smuggling.
She also claims that the data could be used to predict future gun violence.
Critics, though, lambasted the plan saying that the state has no such expertise to use that kind of data to predict anything. There is no infrastructure, processes, or personnel to analyze the data.
According to the Richmond Dispatch:
“Banks, credit card companies and retailers have unique insight into the behavior and purchasing patterns that can help identify and prevent mass shootings,” said Wexton, whose plan has the backing of Everytown for Gun Safety, a national gun-control organization. “The red flags are there — someone just needs to be paying attention.”
The result of this folderol, of course, would only be to track legal gun owners who innocently use credit cards to buy their firearms and supplies.
After all, if such a law were to be enacted, criminals would simply stop using credit cards.
What the state would end up with would be an unconstitutional gun registry on the sly where gun owners would be identified, tracked, and harassed by the government or engaging in their Constitutional rights to bear arms.
Such a registry would also lead to gun confiscation. And this is the true goal of Wexton’s bill.
