The only enemies your guns have are rust and politicians.
Now that Virginia is on statewide home lockdown orders, let's tally up the successes from that big Gun Woodstock rally back when Kung Flu wasn't a thing, shall we?
(RICHMOND, VIRGINIFORNIA) The bills signed by the governor on Friday are:
• Senate Bill 70 and House Bill 2, which establish universal background checks in Virginia
• Senate Bill 240 and House Bill 674, which establish an Extreme Risk Protective Order, allowing authorities to temporarily take guns away from people deemed to be dangerous to themselves or others
• Senate Bill 69 and House Bill 812, which reinstate Virginia’s one-handgun-a-month law
• House Bill 9, which requires gun owners to report their lost or stolen firearms to law enforcement within 48 hours or face a civil penalty.
• House Bill 1083, which toughens the penalty for leaving a loaded, unsecured firearm in a reckless manner that endangers a child
[Gov. Blackface Babykiller] proposed amendments for other bills without signing them into law, including:Bummer. Say, that's quite a box score, though! VA went from Zero to Califrutopia, in one swell foop. Gov. BB seems to be quakin' in his boots. "We stopped the AWB!" doesn't have quite the same ring to it now, does it? Sure is a good thing the jet-fuel geniuses behind that January rally spent that whole month planning that shindig, instead of spending time (that they don't have now - thanks, Kung Flu!) to organize militias at the county level to actually oppose any such nonsense. Surgical mask and gloves optional, but strongly recommended.
• Senate Bill 35 and House Bill 421, which give local governments more authority to ban guns in public spaces, like public buildings, parks, recreation centers, and during permitted events
--- The governor requested amendments clarifying the exemption included in the bill for institutions of higher education
• Senate Bill 479 and House Bill 1004, which bar people with protective orders against them from possessing firearms and require them to turn over their guns within 24 hours
--- The governor requested amendments recommended by the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance to allow judges to hold the person in contempt of court if they fail to comply
Maybe in two or three more months - if we're all really lucky with the pandemic and all - somebody might look into doing that this time around, as something that has a much better chance of actually working, and focuses on the acknowledged strengths available at the local level in 95% of the state, before the dumbass Gun Woodstock sucked all the oxygen out of the party.
Or, you could hold another rally. Maybe next time, masks at the capitol will be mandatory, instead of banned. (As long as they're N95s.)
That will show your legislature who's the boss, and it'll be just the thing to calm the Normies down right on the heels of a pandemic, and the outset of a monster economic recession/Depression: seeing a bunch of jaspers waving rifles around outside the state capitol. It's sure to sway average folks to that side of the argument, you betcha.
Just look how well it worked on the legislature.
Better luck next time around with Plan B. Maybe act like time wasn't infinite, this time.
And FFS, once you're not on lockdowns and stay-at-homes any more
Stop playing in the street.
Nothing you want is won there.
You'd have thought a decade and more of total hippie failures would've taught people at least that much about it.
