Virginia Police Chief Wants To Ban ALL Guns
DCdirtylaundry.com ^ | By Chris Badger Thomas - October 2, 2019

Posted on 10/02/2019 8:49:17 AM PDT by Red Badger

On Sept. 25, the Democrat-led U.S. House Judiciary Committee held a 3 ½ hour “hearing” entitled “Protecting America From Assault Weapons.”

That framing of the issue underscored the erroneous notion that Americans need protection from inanimate objects, rather than from violent criminals who have and always will use any means at their disposal to harm innocent, defenseless people. It also revealed the unfortunate agenda of the proceedings, which was to emphasize politics and finger-pointing over any useful exploration of how Congress might take meaningful steps to improve public safety, The NRA-ILA reports.

The most startling claim of the proceedings came when Dr. RaShall Brackney, Chief of the Charlottesville Police Department in Virginia responded to a question from Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) about whether she would support a ban on hunting rifles. “I believe any weapon that can be used to hunt individuals should be banned,” Brackney replied.

Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) even asked her directly, “Okay, so you then stand for the proposition to ban any type of firearm, because any firearm can be used and misused to kill people.”

Rather than answering the question directly, Dr. Brackney began talking about police and the social contract. Rep. Steube tried asking again, only to be interrupted by an anti-gun committee member who tried to raise a point of order. She claimed that Rep. Steube was “attacking” the witness – when in fact he was merely trying to get a straight answer – and requested that he “tone down his words.” That exchange took up most of Steube’s remaining time for questioning, which was not reinstated.

Again, however, Rep. Steube tried, to clarify, asking, “Any type of weapon … that can be used to kill people should be banned?” “Sir,” Brackney replied, “you’re adding the word ‘type.’ I said ‘any weapons,’ so that’s my answer. Thank you.”

These are the lies that will be told in the U.S. Senate in the coming weeks—both by Democrats and by moderate Republicans. It is no longer a “conspiracy” that the Democrats are “coming for your guns”, they openly admit it now. They have also learned that President Trump stands in their path, so they have been passing state laws and when certain states refuse they then turn to large companies such as Walmart.

The days of saying, “It will never happen” or “shall not be infringed” are days of the past, because it is happening and horrifically infringed upon.

There is a little thing called the 2nd Amendment that stands directly in the way of what he wants.

He can pound sand.

She’d get along good with the police chief who cancelled a fallen officer’s memorial because it would have a Republicans speaking.

“I believe any weapon that can be used to hunt individuals should be banned,”

Well when collectors go out to HUNT those who owe out here, they use bats, brass knuckles, blackjacks, their fists and if the guy falls, their feet. One guy carried a golf club with him.

Are we going to ban all of those things, including the human parts?

I saw a recent Brit TV program where a terrorist used a catapult to break windows in a residence that they desecrated with paint and grafetti.

Turns out the catapult was a wham-o like slingshot

So we go back to crossbow, compound, recurve and long bows... not be mention quality wristrocket sling shots... or make your own with surgical tubing, shoe tongue and a forked dogwood branch. Then of course thugs probably remember how to make zip guns... there is no end to it.

It’s a she. Words can’t express at how absolutely and utterly insane that she is, and how far-left and radical the citizens of the cesspool of Charlottesville are.

The PD has been hit with a mass exodus, and the Chief has been hiring Millennial trash to replace them. They still can’t keep the department staffed.

They implemented a “citizen review board” to second guess every action that police officers take, and they stacked it with Black Lives Matter activists and a local attorney who spends the majority of his time suing police officers.

The Vice-Mayor and City Council member was a vile anti-White racist who posted some of the sickest things that you can imagine on Twitter.

Don’t make the mistake of adopting the Language of the Left.

Semiautomatic Rifles are not Assault Weapons no matter what they look like.

A Baseball Bat is just a Baseball Bat until you hit someone over their Head with one. After you do, that same Baseball Bat is considered Evidence.

In regards to the 2A, gov’t has never defined the term “infringement.”

I would suggest that Chief Brackney lead by example, and refuse to carry any guns herself. And that goes for her staff as well. No guns while on duty. No guns while off duty.

They could be like the British police. Just carry a whistle. Come on Chief Brackney, what do you say?
