  • FORMER VIRGINIA BLACK-FACERS STILL DON’T GET CIVIL RIGHTS

    Powerline ^ | MAY 5, 2020 | PAUL MIRENGOFF
    Herring still doesn’t have much appreciation for civil rights. He’s defending Virginia social distancing policies that led to the pastor of a Virginia church being cited for holding a church service. There were sixteen people in the church sanctuary, which seats 225. The congregation in question serves, among others, recovering drug addicts and former prostitutes. The church sought legal relief. The Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division filed a statement of interest, arguing that the Virginia polices at issue may constitute a violation of the constitutional right to the free exercise of religion. Herring’s office responded with this imbecilic statement:...

    NRA Institute for Legislative Action ^ | MONDAY, APRIL 27, 2020 | NRA-ILA
    On April 10, disgraced Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed five pieces of anti-gun legislation into law. Those measures criminalize the private sale of firearms, ration handgun sales to one a month, create a "red flag" gun confiscation scheme, punish property crime victims who fail to hastily report a firearm as stolen, and restrict how Virginia parents may store and introduce their children to firearms. Northam sent two pieces of anti-gun legislation back, including legislation that erodes the Right-to-Carry and the state firearms preemption statute, to the general assembly with governor's amendments. The General Assembly enacted both items of legislation...

I’m proud to sign these bills into law.” Northam signed legislation allowing early voting 45 days prior to an election without even stating an excuse. Voters used to have to provide a reason for absentee voting from an approved...

    A Virginia store clerk heard a crash that sounded like a car had crashed into the place at 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. He grabbed a gun and shot at three masked men he found stealing merchandise and cash from the shop. When it was over, the clerk was the one in handcuffs. He now sits in jail on no bail, charged with crimes for which he could be locked up for 20 years. Those charges include: "Malicious Wounding, Reckless Handling of a Firearm and Violation of a Protective Order." Police say they'll get around to charging the robbers later. What's...

    As Democratic lawmakers in Virginia chip away at commonwealth residents' firearms rights, one bill in a Southern state seeks to undo the damage and form a pro-Second Amendment bulwark across the south. Mississippi House Bill 753, sponsored by seven Republicans in the state Legislature, was introduced Monday. The bill aims to establish an interstate compact to circumvent certain federal gun laws by establishing a regional power dedicated to the defense of the Second Amendment. Part of the legislation's intended purpose is to exempt certain firearms, accessories and ammunition from overreaching federal regulation. The bill doesn't stop there, promising to "declare...

    Everytown for Gun Safety announced on Monday its plan to spend at least $60 million in the 2020 election, which is nearly double what the National Rifle Association (NRA) spent in 2016. Billionaire former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, is a co-founder of Everytown and is the organization’s largest donor. Bloomberg has put gun control at the forefront of his campaign, but Everytown has said they will treat him like any other candidate in terms of endorsements. “This massive 2020 effort is fueled by a combination of financial resources, unprecedented grassroots...

    "Mass shooters don't like things that go like this," Levine gestured again. "Because what that means is someone can hit the edge of the heads...it's very hard to shoot a lot people fast that way." Levine said mass shooters "like to use guns that go like this," and gestured in a sweeping motion while using a pistol grip: "And guns that go like this are widely inaccurate, that's why hunters don't like them, but mass shooters do like them because their goal is generally not to accurately shoot one person, like an assassin, but to shoot many, many people fast."

    Data from Virginia gun dealers show there were 73,849 firearm sales in December 2019, an increase of 47% over the number of gun sales in December 2018, reported the Associated Press. Sales soared apparently "due to growing fears of increased firearms restrictions backed by Democrats who control the state government," said the AP. Since 1990, the only month that topped last month for gun sales was December 2012, when there were an estimated 75,120 firearm sales.
