It Happened Again
As predicted in my last post more counties around the country are declaring themselves gun sanctuaries. In Virginia which has turned into a hard-blue state; recently, and who’s Governor and legislators are all Democratic they have promised some very restrictive gun control laws. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Here are two more articles about Virginia from Breitbart news:
- More Virginia counties declare themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries.
- Virginia Sheriff will not enforce unconstitutional gun laws.
In an article from Reason magazine you will see that Counties in Wisconsin, Florida, Virginia, Arizona, and Texas became part of a growing “Second Amendment sanctuary” movement this month.
This article describes a Virginia House delegate Ken Plum saying: “The notion that you can have a locality void a state law by declaring yourself a sanctuary simply is not going to hold up in court.”
It is amazing how these Democrat’s see things two ways. It is perfectly fine to declare immigration sanctuaries but not gun sanctuaries. As noted in the article though, “Laws, at the end of the day, need somebody to enforce them, and many sheriffs and police officers in counties where Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions have been passed support their communities’ decisions.”
Patrick Henry had predicted this long ago. He was a staunch Antifederalist and didn’t want the constitution ratified. I will discuss his statement about why he believed that the constitution was flawed and how it led to the situation we are into today in my next post.
