Default Virginia county to fund militia, per US Constitution, in wake of Democrats' gun-contr

Progressives are hell bent upon nullifying the 2nd Amendment by any means possible. Fortunately, one county in Virginia is not going to take it sitting down. I love their approach and hope that more municipalities follow their lead.

Virginia county to fund militia, per US Constitution, in wake of Democrats' gun-control agenda

One official said the measure allows for immediate intervention if state legislation violates citizens' Second Amendment rights

Amid dozens of Virginia counties declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries in case the state enacts strict gun-control measures next year, Tazewell County joined in and took a big extra step.

In addition to passing a resolution declaring the county a Second Amendment sanctuary, the Tazewell County Board of Supervisors on Dec. 3 also passed a resolution underscoring the right to a well-funded and regulated militia as described in the U.S. Constitution and the commonwealth's constitution, WJHL-TV reported.

And even though Democrats outnumber Republicans 3-2 on the board, both resolutions passed unanimously, the station said.

What does it all mean?

The Second Amendment Sanctuary resolution indicates the county won't provide funds for any measure infringing upon its citizens' Second Amendment rights, the station said.

The militia resolution allocates county funds to maintain a well-regulated militia, board chairman Travis Hackworth told WJHL.

Vice Chairman Charles Stacey added to the station that the militia resolution also would provide immediate intervention if the Virginia General Assembly which will be Democrat-controlled in 2020 passes legislation violating citizens' Second Amendment rights.

Stacey and Hackworth also told WJHL that if state laws are signed that oppose the Second Amendment, Tazewell County will prepare an injunction.

What's the background?

Virginia Democratic lawmakers have threatened law enforcement officials in Second Amendment Sanctuary counties with potential prosecution if they don't uphold future gun control measures.

Regarding the matter Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam said "there's not going to be retaliation" but "if we have constitutional laws on the books, and law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books, then there are going to be consequences, but I'll cross that bridge if and when we get to it."

Amid the backlash, Northam and incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw said they would add a "grandfather clause" to the proposed assault weapon ban, which would let gun owners keep weapons already legally owned as long as they're registered.

In addition, a Virginia sheriff said if Democrats pass restrictive gun control laws, he may deputize thousands of citizens to exempt them from such measures.

There are now over 100 of Va cities/counties who have voted to ignore Northram and the Democrats. In the end there will be all but a few refusing to cooperate.

My best guess is there will be lots of bluster until after the holidays, but no bill will ever reach the floor.

In the end, I see all anti-gun people with their thumbs up their asses, standing by, helpless and clueless, as real Americans stand up for their Constitutional rights.

Anti-gun people and assorted weenies, including "I'm pro-gun, but..." types, chime in.

If the bill does pass, I'm betting Virginians will not be standing alone under MOLON LABE flags. This is some serous sh!t!

Va is not all rednecks and Pabst Blue Ribbon. Just as all states have these vigilantes, they have their share.
Who are they gonna fight? The police who they claim to respect? Cause that's who will come for them if they start any real violence.

Great cult fantasy movie
And it's a lie
Nobody ever beat the police for the sake of Indians
And no magas or sagas will fight cops over trump that dont end up screwed glued and tatooed.

What in the world are you talking about? Who is calling the people of Virginia "rednecks" and "vigilantes" and claiming they are looking to fight the police?

You must have some inane ability to read something in a post that was not written. All that the article is referring to is that there is a county in Virginia that is taking CONSTITUTIONAL steps to prepare themselves in the event that progressives in power cannot trample on their rights. YOU are the one claiming they are nothing but rednecks and vigilantes.

The Second Amendment does not grant the people the right to bear arms. The Second Amendment denies the government the power and authority to infringe on our right to Bear arms.

I think the Virginia legislators have forgotten.
