VA: Lies Cost Lives in Virginia Politics

Democrat politicians in Virginia said we would be safer if we were disarmed. That isn’t true. These lies are getting us killed, and the gun-control laws in place today are already too severe.

This is where we are, where we should go, and where the Virginia Democrats will take us.

In December, the U.S. Supreme Court will have heard, for the first time since 2010, arguments on whether a gun-control law violates the Second Amendment. Its decision could determine whether the right to keep and bear arms will finally be accorded the respect and dignity of other Constitutional rights or whether it will remain, as Justice Clarence Thomas once lamented, a “constitutional orphan.”

A coalition of 21 state attorneys general is asking the Supreme Court to strike down a Maryland law that denies concealed carry permits unless applicants can convince local officials they have a “good and substantial reason” to be granted one by local authorities.
 

What We Learned from the Bloomberg Effect in Virginia

To touch the obvious highpoints-

Money talks. When your local representative is elected to office because billionaire Michael Bloomberg bought his victory, then the representative doesn’t speak for you. He speaks for Bloomberg.

Politicians who take large campaign contributions can propose disastrous laws so long as the contributions continue. Bloomberg’s political contributions becomes essential while the local results of legislation becomes superfluous.

News outlets accept money to run campaign advertisements. Beyond their personal biases, the media’s commercial incentives further distort their ability to report honestly on an election.
 

VA: Virginia's Second Amendment attack

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam apologized for his medical school blackface stunt, but he will have much more to apologize for if he signs into law a bill that attacks Virginia citizens' Second Amendment rights. The measure is Senate Bill 16, which would ban "assault" firearms and certain firearm magazines. Since Democrats have seized control of Virginia's General Assembly, they are likely to push hard for strict gun control laws. Those laws will have zero impact on Virginia's criminals and a heavy impact on Virginia's law-abiding citizens who own, or intend to own, automatic weapons for hunting or their protection. As a friend once explained to me, "I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop."
 

NJ: NJ town pushes back against gun control: 'Don't tread on us'

A second New Jersey municipality has declared itself friendly to gun rights-- pushing back against increasingly strict gun control measures under Gov. Phil Murphy's administration.

The New Jersey Herald reports Sussex Borough declared itself in a unanimously passed resolution last week to be "2nd Amendment/Lawful Gun Owner municipality" at the behest of Assemblyman Parker Space, who voted against a so-called "red flag" law that allows the state to temporarily confiscate guns from someone deemed a potential threat.
 

FL: South Florida Cities Take Aim At State Law Limiting Local Gun Control Policies

Describing the law as an “unnecessary and unconstitutional overreach,” cities and counties argue that an appeals court should reject a 2011 state law that threatens tough penalties if local elected officials approve gun regulations.

Attorneys for dozens of cities, counties and local officials filed a brief Monday urging the 1st District Court of Appeal to uphold a lower-court decision that found the law unconstitutional. Challenges to the law were filed after the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, as local governments looked for ways to curb gun violence.

“These immunities underscore our republican form of government in which citizens choose their elected officials, who are then duty-bound to represent their constituents’ interests through legislative and regulatory initiatives,” the 54-page brief said. “Without immunity from liability, officials and localities are understandably likely to refrain from acting on matters they reasonably believe are both permissible and in the interest of their constituents, for fear of professional and financial ruin if it is later determined their belief was mistaken.”
 

Second Amendment Supporters Should Watch Early Primaries

The 2020 presidential campaign will heat up soon, and it culminates in November with the presidential election. But the debates will soon be giving way to the primaries. This is where the rubber will start to meet the road.

The fact is, while polling and debate performances can give us a sense of which anti-Second Amendment extremist President Trump will face this coming November, the early primaries will sharpen the focus. Right now, there are four top-tier contenders: Former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Senator Bernie Sanders. Thankfully, Michael Bloomberg seems to be flailing and behind those four – but none of them are likely to say no to the Bloomberg agenda.

Second Amendment sanctuaries are repugnant

What is the matter with people? All the recent noise from local Virginia counties clamoring to make their communities Second Amendment sanctuaries is repugnant.

“For us [cops] to get your guns, there has to be due process,” Sheriff Aitor Narvaiza said Monday.

He said with the new “red flag” law, one person can go to the courthouse and fill out a statement about another person, and based on that statement a judge can issue an order that the other person’s guns must be taken away.

“It’s the only law on the books where you can lose your firearms without doing anything wrong, just based on an allegation,” Narvaiza said. “That to me is very unconstitutional.”

Narvaiza said he and Elko Police Chief Ty Trouten were meeting this week with Elko County District Attorney Tyler Ingram and others to discuss the “red flag” law and their response to it.
 

PA: Carrying Concealed Not Legal Grounds to Stop and Search a Person in PA

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court found that Hicks Fourth Amendment rights had been violated, and there was no legitimate reason for the police to stop him that early morning in June.

Michael Hicks was deprived of the protections of the Fourth Amendment and Article I, Section 8 of the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the evidence derivative of his seizure should have been suppressed.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court opinion was decided on 31 May, 2019. The State of Pennsylvania applied to the U.S. Supreme Court to appeal the decision on 27 September 2019. The United States Supreme Court formally declined to hear the case. The Court declines to hear cases by declining a writ of certiorari.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There are other things so clearly out of the power of Congress, that the bare recital of them is sufficient, I mean the "...rights of bearing arms for defence, or for killing game..." These things seem to have been inserted among their objections, merely to induce the ignorant to believe that Congress would have a power over such objects and to infer from their being refused a place in the Constitution, their intention to exercise that power to the oppression of the people. —ALEXANDER WHITE (1787)
