Have some Americans gotten their fill of Left-wing authoritarianism?
By Jon Dougherty
(TNS) We have been reporting on the increasingly volatile situation in Virginia regarding numerous gun control proposals incoming Democrats have been floating since they won control of all lawmaking institutions in November.
That is a terrifying prospect and I have never seen people willing to speak about something like that publicly…As a law enforcement officer, I empathize with concerns people have over gun violence.”
When asked to sum up, Maj. Woods concluded with this warning:
“The legal precedent we would set by allowing the legislature to selectively ignore enumerated rights at will is the same mindset that 150 years ago let this country into a civil war.”
It’s not clear if he believes that Democrats in the South were responsible for the Civil War via secession over the institution of slavery or if he’s implying something else. But to hear a veteran military officer and cop say something like this is chilling.
Incoming majority Democrats have been floating one new gun control bill after another — a “red flag” law that destroys the Fifth Amendment’s “due process” clause; bans on entire classes of semi-automatic rifles; magazine bans; even a gun confiscation measure.
Democrats have claimed that they have been given a “mandate” from voters in the state because they happened to have captured a majority of seats in the Assembly and Senate, as well as owning the governor’s mansion.
But if that were true, then how come more than 110 cities and (a majority of) counties around the state have declared themselves to be “Second Amendment sanctuaries,” pledging not to help state authorities enforce any new gun control laws like “sanctuary cities” in the state refuse to help federal officials enforce immigration laws?
It just feels like this issue is going to come down to who blinks first or, if no one does, someone will miscalculate. And our money is on state Democrats who are arrogantly dismissing two-thirds of their state with new gun law proposals.
Woods appears to agree.
