“Our position is that Article I, Section 13, of the Constitution of Virginia reserves the right to ‘order’ militia to the localities. Therefore, counties, not the state, determine what types of arms may be carried in their territory and by whom. So, we are ‘ordering’ the militia by making sure everyone can own a weapon.”

Anti-gun leftists have long maintained that the Second Amendment only references a militia’s right to bear arms. So when your state proposes onerous gun-control laws, accompanied by an unofficial threat to use the National Guard to enforce them, what do you do?
If you’re a group of smart patriots, you form a militia.
This is exactly what’s happening in Virginia, according to Law Enforcement Today, as post-election Democrat dominance is causing many Old Dominion residents to take their state’s motto, Sic Semper Tyrannis (Thus ever to tyrants), more seriously.
As the Independent Sentinel reports:
Tazewell County, Virginia, is forming a militia to defend the Constitution and, specifically, the Second Amendment, in the now-deep blue state. Within hours, they were flooded with emails from people across the state who wanted to join. These included military veterans, officers, and other patriotic Americans.
…Over 76 counties out of 95, 9 of 38 independent cities, and 13 towns have already declared themselves gun sanctuaries. Tazewell is not only a sanctuary, but it’s also going to be the home of the militia.
It’s a clever parry. Again, leftists’ own past statements acknowledge a militia’s right to firearm ownership. This is clear in the Second Amendment, too, which reads, “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
The Constitution of Virginia echoes this, mind you, with its Article I, Section 13 stating, “That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state, therefore, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
The current proposed infringement is extreme, too. As The New American (TNAreported last month, “In the wake of the Democrat takeover of Virginia, the newly empowered Left is unapologetic about plans to disarm residents of the Old Dominion” (Good “One America News” summary of the situation below).
Aside from working to ban new AR-15 sporting guns — our nation’s most popular rifle — and establish “red flag” laws, “Virginia Democrats have put forth a bill that would strengthen current state law against ‘paramilitary’ activity by criminalizing assemblies of persons with firearms,” wrote TNA December 2.
The offending language of Senate Bill No. 64 establishes that a person is “guilty of unlawful paramilitary activity, punishable as a Class 5 felony” if he assembles “with one or more persons with the intent of intimidating any person or group of persons by drilling, parading, or marching with any firearm, any explosive or incendiary device, or any components or combination thereof.”
“The threat of SB 64 to defenders of the Second Amendment is the uncertainty of how ‘intent’ would be decided,” wrote TNA.
Yet this is an old story. Politicians’ vaguely worded bills sometimes reflect incompetence, but there also can be method to the madness: Legislation can be thus crafted purposely in the knowledge that the ambiguities will then be settled in court — often by activist judges who’ll apply the most statist, liberty-squelching interpretation.
This allows cowardly politicians to effect policy by judicial-fiat proxy, enabling them to advance an unpopular agenda without taking responsibility for it and incurring voter wrath at election time. “Hey, the courts have ruled! It’s out of our hands!” is the idea.
But “cowardly” does not describe Tazewell County, wherein votes “for the militia were unanimous among 200 citizens,” the Sentinel also reported. “They had three attorneys check their declarations which included a ban on funding any law enforcement department that infringed on citizens’ rights to bear arms.”
Speaking of funding, a state government threat to withhold it from Second Amendment “sanctuary” counties prompted Tazewell’s actions. But that’s not all about which sanctuary counties have to worry. “Rep. Gerald Connelly, D-Fairfax County, has called for sheriffs and deputies who refuse to enforce any new gun laws to be ‘prosecuted for failure to fulfill their oath,’” reports the Roanoke Times.
And “Rep. Donald McEachin, D-Richmond, has … suggested that the governor call out the National Guard to enforce the law,” the paper continues. Them’s fightin’ words, as is said, that certainly stir the pot. As the Times put it, “If Connelly and McEachin were firefighters, they’d apparently show up at a house fire with a tanker full of gasoline.”
Mindful of these poltroonish politician pyromaniacs, Tazewell isn’t the only county seeking to confront Richmond’s tyranny with brains rather than brawn. Earlier this month, Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins said that while he won’t disregard “duly passed” laws, he will deputize every law-abiding resident in his jurisdiction to protect their Second Amendment rights (video below).
In explaining why he’d choose a lawful remedy instead of just defying Richmond law, Jenkins said that “elections have consequences.” This is true, and one consequence now is that the Old Dominion State may want to reconsider its famous tourist slogan, “Virginia is for lovers.” ’Cause with the empowering of its leftists, love is one thing that, increasingly, is in short supply.

Virginia: A Sleeping Giant Has Awoken

NUTNFANCY PATREON IS ACTIVE, special content for members, less than 1% of TNPrs help me out on Patreon....what?!: The Virginia Democrats (i.e. LEFTISTS) are going for broke. They wish to imprison non complying citizens and even LEOs if they don't fall in line with a coming semi auto firearm ban. Read about SB16 here: These Leftists were allowed to come into office by Virginians and what your'e seeing there will be coming to you soon enough (watch my video: Here I give highlight to a good pro human rights organization in Virginia, the Virginia Citizens Defense League or VCDL. They are organized, motivated, and aggressive in pushing back on what could be the genesis of an entire US trend. I read their manifesto and applaud it. All states should have energized and ready-to-go pro gun rights organizations like this. This is a political answer to a serious problem for good folks around this country, not just in VA. Sanctuary counties have emerged with their good citizens and SHERIFFS vowing to oppose this onerous legislation and promised punishments. Gun owners in VA promise NOT to comply and even use of force against confiscators. They represent a nationwide attitude that has tired of being vilified and attacked by the Left. Gov what's his face promises harsh retribution and even National Guard involvement to quell any "insurrections" against his decree. This is what happens when you sit home, bitch and moan online and DON'T vote: the Dems come into power and have their way. This is happening nationwide not just in VA. All this and much more is discussed here with an emphasis on peaceful resolutions if at all possible. VCDL is applying pressure to their legislators on Monday January 20th, 2020 at the Richmond Capitol Building. Another touchstone Nutnfancy human rights video.
