Gun Control Is Coming To Virginia

BY Herschel Smith
1 month ago

AP:

The win will give Democrats control of the legislature and governorship for the first time in 26 years. Democrats have pledged to pass new gun restrictions and raise the minimum wage once in power.

It’s going to happen most places in America.  This is just the first wave.  It’s a shame, really.

I know good people in Virginia, in the mountainous areas, around Damascus, where they can barely contain their animosity for the progressive policies in Northern Virginia.

But here we are.  The “Army of Northern Virginia” is now a bunch of nanny state controllers who want to implement communism.

I’m sorry to my readers in Virginia.

    Excerpt from AP link:

    “Ghazala Hashmi defeated Sen. Glen Sturtevant Tuesday in a key win for Democrats hoping to flip control of the Senate.

    Hashmi campaigned heavily on education, gun violence prevention, and health care, criticizing Sturtevant for his vote against Medicaid expansion.

    Hashmi immigrated to the U.S. from India as a child. The state party says she will be the first Muslim-American woman to serve in the Senate.”

    By any means necessary.

    What was it Mike Vanderboegh used to say: I think it’s “Resist, Evade, Defy.”

    Hey as long as the suburban soccer moms are happy then we can take care of the world and have the glorious people’s collective utopia. Forward!
    We have unlimited space and money to be the world’s sugar mommy and it will make our social media followers happy with a cascade of emojis for our unicorns. Diversity is our strength, empower Saint Greta to save the world!

    Thanks for the kind words brother. Many of us in the Old Dominion are sad to see our State this way. We have been invaded again by scum and villainy. This time they just drove across the river and colonized Northern Virginia.
    My family has been here for several hundred years. Sad to say but I’m considering West Virginia when I officially retire from everything and become a curmudgeon. “Red in ProgressiveVirginny” just doesn’t have the same ring.
    To borrow a phrase ” There’s gonna be a fight – let’s win.”
    Best Regards,

    Here’s a good question IMHO;

    How much money has the NRA spent on lawyers to save Wayne and how much have they spent on saving candidates who support the 2nd in 2019?

    And I didn’t intend to throw shade at West-By G*d-Virginia. It’s a great State and I’ve done some networking and made some good friends there.
    After all they were parted from Virginia by devious methods.

    @Red in OleVirginny: I find it supremely ironic that VA and WV are again on opposite sides of a contentious issue, and that WV, a ‘northern’ state is acting much more southern than VA, a southern state.

    Not surprising, just ironic.

    VA can now look forward to permanent, super-majority Democrat Socialist Party control, just like California.

    The 11 largest states by number of Electors have the 270 majority needed. Virginia is number 12. The communists have strategy, the patriots have memes, oh and, Donald “I like taking the guns first” Trump, of course.

    billrla –
    Just like Nazi Jersey (NJ), and Taxachussets (MA), among others.

    All –
    KY also just turned blue:

    Just so everyone knows, Sturtevant willfully rejected the NRA Endorsement.

    He received A- … but he did NOT want it.

    He ran like a coward; the result is clear.

    And it was HIS decision, not the NRA.

    I was born in a Hampton Roads military hospital almost 7 decades ago.
    Though I wound up in MD due to family, I always considered it a “run to”
    State when even family ties had to take second row to safety/survival.
    Now, that option is off the table.

    The horde of public trough-suckers at Mordor on the Potomac has to live somewhere….so Virginia loses.

    Heard from a few sources that the (R) Party simply did not contest 25% of the seats. Shooting oneself in the foot?
