Around 22,000 people came here last week to protest potential new restrictions on guns under consideration by the new Democratic majority in the General Assembly.

VA – GUN RIGHTS – ‘Unconstitutional and worthless’: Emails show officials doubting gun sanctuaries

TIGHTER GUN LAWS AREN'T THE ONLY THING RURAL VIRGINIA COUNTIES HAVE RESISTED AS THEY'VE DECLARED THEMSELVES SECOND AMENDMENT "SANCTUARIES." THEY’VE ALSO DEFIED LEGAL ADVICE IN SOME CASES, IGNORING WARNINGS FROM COUNTY ATTORNEYS AND ADMINISTRATORS THAT THE SANCTUARY RESOLUTIONS ARE LEGALLY MEANINGLESS AND DANGEROUSLY CONFUSING.

VA – EDITORIAL – Another View: Thankful for a rally without incident

VIRGINIA BREATHED A SIGH OF RELIEF ON TUESDAY, ONE DAY AFTER GUN CONTROL OPPONENTS DOMINATED THE TRADITIONAL LOBBY DAY AFFAIR — MASSING AN ESTIMATED 22,000 PEOPLE AT THE CAPITOL TO PROTEST SEVERAL PROPOSED GUN CONTROL MEASURES BEFORE THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

NAT’L – WATCH: Virginia’s “Second Amendment Sanctuary Cities”

We begin with an epic Constitutional battle in Virginia that’s drawing national attention. Inside of two months, nearly every county in the state has passed new measures supporting Constitutional gun rights. The effort culminated with a massive, peaceful rally at the state capitol this past week where the Governor declared a state of emergency and warned there could be violence. We investigate what triggered a movement that is now…

VA – WILDLIFE – “No Kill” Bill Returns to Reignite Animal Wars

Another attempt to impose the “no-kill” philosophy on Virginia’s animal shelters is pending in the Virginia Senate, sponsored by a rural Republican who is the great champion of that (so-far) failed cause. After a long subcommittee hearing Thursday, his bill was put back in the shelter pen to await its fate for another week. If you think gun control is the most contentious issue facing legislators year in and…

VA – MEDIA – Media Paints Virginia 2A Supporters as White Nationalists

Tens of thousands of gun rights advocates journeyed to Virginia to defend the Second Amendment (2A), yet the mainstream media painted another picture, one that grouped 2A defenders with neo-Nazis. As Fox News reported, “several news outlets pushed the claim that the rally was made up of ‘white supremacists’ or ‘white nationalists.’ Instead, they got a rally that was so peaceful that the protesters even picked up their own trash when they were done.”…

VA – GUN CONTROL – VA Democrat Gun Grabber Can’t Define ‘Assault Weapon’

Virginia Delegate Mark Levine (D) is pushing a ban on “assault weapons,” but cannot define what such a weapon actually is. Levine’s legislation, House Bill 961, would ban “assault weapons,” but allow those who currently own them to keep them as long as they get a license to do so. HB 961 makes clear the licensing process would be used to create a database of “assault weapon” owners so the…

The First Time I Shot, I Walked Away Wondering: What Is A Responsible Gun Owner?

FORBES.COM – The young man put the handgun on the counter in front of me. I felt like I was in the presence of a rattlesnake. If I avoided it, it wouldn’t hurt me. But I was there to shoot it, which meant I had to pick it up. I’d told a friend of mine, a gun collector, that I intended…

Me, My Liberal Wife and What Happened When We Went to a Gun Range

TIME.COM – There are plenty of people my lovely wife Cassandra rants against — some of whom don’t even live in our house. But the ones who get it worst are gun owners. Having grown up in a rural, gun-loving town, she finds the preppers and vigilantes to be self-heroizing macho bullies who, now that I type this sentence, I am…

NV – SHOT Show – Surprising Gun Facts from the SHOT Show

Only John Lott could kill a much-repeated “fact” so cleanly. In 2018 it was widely reported that Americans own 46% of the world’s civilian-owned firearms. This statistic came from the Small Arms Survey, a Geneva, Switzerland, based organization that calls itself “a global centre of excellence” that “generates evidence-based, impartial, and policy-relevant knowledge and analysis on small arms….” It says this just before stating: “Our main objective is to reduce…

NAT’L – OPINION – Gun Firms is preparing for ‘panic buying’ as the elections approach

Firearms and ammunition companies are waiting for signs of increasing focus on weapons as the 2020 presidential election approaches, according to CL King.

NAT’L – GUN RIGHTS – The Racist History of Gun Control

This week’s Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Virginia, was a big disappointment … but not for those in attendance. More than 20,000 protesters marched peacefully in Virginia’s capital city in support of their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. But for members of the Leftmedia, many of whom characterized the event as an uprising of violent white nationalists, the day was a stark reminder that they just don’t understand this…
