Virginia governor proposes radical gun control measure that could end up with confiscation

Make no mistake about this gun grab: This demoRAT governor is leading the fight to take away your guns in Virginia.

From Fox News: The plan to ban the sale and possession of certain kinds of firearms proposed by Virginia governor Ralph Northam (D.) could affect millions of gun owners, an industry group said on Friday.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), which represents gun manufacturers and dealers, said the vague description of the legislation released by Northam on Jan. 4 would apply to most firearms currently on sale in the commonwealth.

The legislative proposals being discussed would put most firearms beyond the reach of law-abiding Virginians who choose the firearms of their choice to protect themselves, hunt, and practice recreational target shooting,” said Lawrence G. Keane, the group’s general counsel. “That could potentially impact the availability of tens of millions of firearms.”

While short on details, Northam’s announcement said part of the proposed gun-control package would ban the “sale, purchase, possession, and transport” of undefined “assault firearms” including “any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.” Since the vast majority of semiautomatic handguns and rifles in the state are sold standard with magazines capable of holding 10 or more rounds, it appears the proposed ban would affect most firearms on sale in Virginia.

Additionally, the announcement of the ban did not include mention of any grandfathering to allow what NSSF estimated would be millions of Virginians who already own such firearms to legally keep them.

This is a straight-up gun confiscation proposal. Stephen Gutowski from Free Beacon details more about this proposal on Twitter (from Twitchy):

“Virginia Democrats don’t just want to ban future sales of “assault firearms” as a few states have done, they want to outright ban possession which means confiscation. And their vauge definition of “assault firearms” applies to most currently sold in VA.”

“The only defining characteristic they’ve released thus far is any firearm “equipped” with a magazine that holds 10 or more rounds. That’s nearly every semi-automatic handgun and rifle sold in the state. The vast majority come standard with magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.”

The governor’s office refused to return my calls or answer my questions on the proposed ban so there’s no more details on what the actual legislation will look like or how Democrats would enforce such a law.”

“If the legislation matches the governor’s announcement, which isn’t a guarantee given how vauge and poorly written the announcement is, the proposal would be by far the most radical gun ban in the country. No other state has attempted this kind of confiscation on this scale.”

Remember this when demoRATs claim they aren’t coming for your guns…

  1. Come and take my gun! Bang, bang, bang! I just renewed my NRA membership!

  2. The gun-control mania is intensifying across the U.S.
    Molon Labe!

  3. Gov. Northam, Rep. Pelossi and the rest of the elected gun-grabbing hoard know perfectly well that their gun ban proposals have no chance of becoming law. They don’t care. What they actually are up to is forcing pro 2nd Amendment organizations to deplete their resources by having them filing constant lawsuits against the proposed bans. The NRA, the NSSF, and other activists cannot out spend haters of democracy such as George Soros, the Brady bunch, and their allies who would turn the USA into a socialist/communist wasteland of repressed, disenfranchised slaves. History proves this. There has never been a country in which the populace, having first been disarmed, has not subsequently been enslaved in some fundamental way. Think Hitler’s gun-control act of 1938. Think England today, where it is a crime to disrespect a cop, and where flipping the bird at an electronic speed trap will get you an 8-month jail sentence. It can happen here, and it will happen here if we allow ourselves to be deprived of the only thing that can keep us free. Molon labe.

  4. 2nd Amendment. Use it or Lose it.

    All the while that these fool legislators and multiple ignorant authoritarians, and arbitrators, argue and debate these absurd proposals, it is incumbent on some one, one of common sense, real under standing, and authority, to inform these half-wits that gun control has no standing.

    If the true U.S. citizens have to do it on their own, the vultures will be swarming.

  6. This clown is out of his mind if he thinks he can confiscate our LEGAL guns!!!

  7. You’re welcome to try and you’re welcome to die.

    As a Navy Veteran and retired Los Angeles policeman I swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. As a cop I was to keep the peace and serve the citizens, not oppress them. I swore to defend our God given rights as protected by the Bill of Rights. From both domestic and foreign enemies. Those elected and non-elected people who want to disarm us are domestic enemies. Cops need to boldly announce they will not enforce these unconstitutional laws. All of us have the right and may I say responsibility t water the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants when they come for our guns.

    • Thank you, Kevin, for your many services to this country, and for your support of the law-abiding citizens of this country who expect to receive & defend, their Constitutional rights to individually bear arms…..(against all enemies, foreign and domestic, I might add).

    • Yes, the Constitution is at risk by globalists. Demand a referendum in Virginia because your Governor is betraying the Constitution, not upholding it.

      Northam is a TRAITOR.

  9. I believe we have reached a point in this country where any hope of settling our differences with the Left outside of bloodshed. We have a right to defend our lives. That Right is given to us from God.

  10. It’s been a long time since a Conservative and a Liberal could talk Politics and actually reach a LOGICAL conclusion. With this last imposter/president,it became 100 times worse. The Democrats/Liberals/Leftists/Socialists/Communists (They’re ALL different “Chapters” of the same “Club”.) have gone even beyond extremist-they’ve gone stark raving mad. They’ve ignored the letter of law,the Constitution and common sense to formulate a party-wide lynch-mob. I’ve NEVER seen such insanity actually sanctioned by the general population. I don’t know what can be done about ’em-there’s FAR too many to arrest,prosecute for their various crimes,incarcerate,or,in the case of some specific examples (Pelosi,Schumer,Feinstein,Mad Maxine,Hillary,Obama and his husband-I’m looking right at YOU while I say this!) lock into rubber rooms for life. When cattle go crazy en mas (From bad water,toxic feed,things like that),all that can be done is to shoot ’em,but in THIS case,that would only lower US to THEIR level. I dunno-maybe “volunteer” them all for the first Mars colonization trip….

  11. Scratch a Democrat, find a fascist…

  12. There has never been a government that banned it’s own ARMED FORCES from “Keeping and Bearing” ARMS.
    Find one government in the history of humanity that felt a need to document a “RIGHT” for it’s ARMED FORCES to possess ARMS.
    Oppressive Governments are ALWAYS banning the People’S RIGHTS to arms.
    The claim that the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our ARMED FORCES a “right” to keep and carry ARMS is S-T-U-P-I-D.
    The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS.
    The only reason for the BILL(list) of RIGHTS was to codify INDIVIDUALS’ GOD GIVEN RIGHTS.
    Has there ever been a government that was not chock full of it’s “rights” up to and including declaring itself to be the Lord God Almighty?! (Rome, Egypt, Israel,etc)
    Does the 1st Amendment mean the GOVERNMENT is allowed to give speeches? Try shutting up any Politician. But THEY would LOVE to shut YOU up, hence the FIRST Amendment.
    Anyone who tells you the 2nd Amendment applies to the Army or State Militia, is telling you they think you are STUPID.
    There has NEVER been a government that felt it had to codify it’s army’s/soldier’s “RIGHT” to “Keep and BEAR ARMS” because there has NEVER been a government that refused to allow It’s own soldiers to KEEP and BEAR ARMS!
    The Second Amendment was written for the People, like the other 9 Amendments in the Bill of Rights. This was confirmed by the SCOTUS in the DC vs Heller decision, where they stated that the “People” in the Second Amendment were the same “People” that are mentioned in the First and Fourth Amendment.
    The 2nd Amendment clearly codifies the “right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms”, and certainly not “the Militia”.
    Why would “the Militia”, a type of army manned by citizen-soldiers as opposed to full-time “regulars”, need a constitutional amendment to guarantee they have the right “to keep and bear arms”?
    Is there any specific statement anywhere in the Constitution that the army Congress is empowered to raise has the “right to keep and bear arms”? Of course not. …………. That is assumed.

    the 2nd amendment,, specifies that the RIGHT to bear arms is the right of the people,, NOT the militia,,,, it is the people who will make up the militia,, but the right is not the right of a “well regulated militia” it is the right of the people, We the people were BORN WITH INALIENABLE RIGHTS, meaning they come from GOD.

    Your Rights do not come from the Constitution. Your Rights come from Our Creator, and the Constitution was written to SUPERVISE, REGULATE, and CONTROL government actors. As it relates to firearms, the Heller “decision” was completely unnecessary, and likely a smokescreen to make it APPEAR that the USG retained some rights to regulate some firearms. Check out the relevant part of US v. Cruikshank:
    “[The Right to Keep and Bear Arms] is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The second amendment declares that it shall not be infringed;… This is one of the amendments that has no other effect
    than to restrict the powers of the national government,…”.
    U.S. v. Cruikshank Et Al. 92 U.S. 542 (1875).
    Res adjudicata – “the thing has already been decided.”
    The 9th and 10th Amendments help make it ABUNDANTLY clear to even the DENSEST of intellects that we truly have NO “Constitutional rights.” What we have(at the risk of being redundant) is Constitutionally-SECURED rights, but these rights are ONLY as secure as:
    a) the honor and integrity of those taking the oath, and
    b) the ability of the People to COMPEL obedience on pain of perjury charges and removal from office.

    The intention of the Founders and Framers was to keep our God-given rights secure by REQUIRING those who seek office to take the oath as an immutable predicate to taking office, meaning it is binding on THEM – not on US.

    Of course, most of the power brokers wish to keep us ignorant of our Rights and our Power. If possible, i highly recommend Thomas Paine’s “The Rights of Man,” which should help to educate Americans and illustrate to them the difference between Natural Rights, and what the 14th (never properly ratified, btw) wishes to change that to: “privileges and immunities.”

    It is implicit in the nature of all kinds of armies —- be they militia or regulars, volunteer, conscripted, or mercenary — to be armed.
    They are all “armed forces”.
    They all “bear arms”.
    They all carry guns.
    That is what they do.
    It certainly no more requires an amendment to the Constitution to state that “the Militia” has the RKBA , than a specific statement that the army Congress is empowered to raise may be manned by armed troops.

    Governments don’t have to document their “right” to bear arms, that is what governments ARE, they are naked force, George Washington said as much. Saying governments have a right to guns is like saying cars have a right to have wheels…

    “The [U.S.] Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals … it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government … it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen’s protection against the government.” Ayn Rand
