Virginia Allocating Money to Jail Gun Owners
Article from The Daily Caller by NRA ILA.
As if Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s wholesale attack on law-abiding gun owners wasn’t enough, the disgraced public official and his Michael Bloomberg-bought allies in the General Assembly now want the state’s hard-working taxpayers to foot the bill for their unconstitutional schemes. The budget bill (HB30) includes an appropriation of a quarter million dollars to carry out a host of gun control measures that Northam and his anti-gun allies hope to enact.
The $250,000 is appropriated to the Corrections Special Reserve Fund in order to provide for the “increase in the operating cost of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment” of Northam’s gun control measures. Among the enumerated laws that this allocation is meant to fund is a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, the criminalization of private firearms transfers, and gun confiscation orders issued without due process.
Aside from the insult of forcing law-abiding Virginia taxpayers to pay for the diminution of their rights, the gun control allocation is a severe waste of resources. Northam’s Bloomberg-backed gun control measures will not make Virginia safer.
In additional to being unconstitutional, a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms will not reduce violent crime.

I think that all democrats in Washington needs to be sued for wasting tax payers money
Do the Virginia Democrats think that Virginians will be as compliant and subservient as Californians? We’ll see. First Step: Take Virginians’ Confederate statues and history. Second Step: Take Virginians’ guns. Final Step: Take Virginians’ freedom and savings.
The start down the path of communism. Soon we need to take the left down, and it will be a shooting war. I am prepared to uphold my oath to defend the United States from enemies, BOTH FORIGN AND DOMESTIC.

In coonman’s shriveled mind, he’s accepted the notion that it’s better to go after peaceable, lawful citizens than criminals. Perhaps he’s in cahoots with the criminal element. After all, most criminals live and earn their income in the big cities that generate most of his votes. And certainly, self-respecting residents in the smaller counties would never vote for such an clown. In a bizarre way, it makes sense to the mindless.
