Somebody’s gonna get hurt, if this keeps up

Insisting on one’s rights is not rebellion,
it’s self-defense

    The Virginia Civil Defense League has the list of sanctuary counties and the list where they’re working on it.
    Arlington and Prince William are on the ‘working on it’ list. If they pull the trigger, that’s huge. They’re No. Va places full of gubmint werkers.

    As of 9 Dec, 59 of 95 Virginia counties have declared themselves 2A sanctuaries. I had hopes there would be a ray of sunshine here in my central Virginia county because 4 of 5 County Supervisors are Republican, the Commonwealth’s Attorney and Sheriff are both Republican, so we should have been another resistant “sanctuary” county after their 11 Dec Board meeting.
    My County Board of Supervisors Fence Straddlers wimped out last night on the sanctuary vote in spite of a capacity crowd in the room (290 according to the Fire Marshall) and hundreds more outside.
    They refused to vote, with the Republican Chairwoman saying,
    “We have been contacted by so very many of you and realize that any actions we might consider only serve to further possibly divide the community and give you no protections as to any possible actions that state or federal legislators might take.”
    People in the crowd were upset with the supervisors’ refusal to vote on a resolution and raised their voices at the board members, demanding repeatedly that they vote.

    Total wimp out! I’m ashamed to say I voted for the Chairwoman Head Wimp RINO as my district supervisor just a month ago. I have a long memory, and I’m sure so do many other 2A supporters.

    To politicians everywhere:

    If you think it’s a good idea, go ahead and try to confiscate people’s firearms. Use whatever excuse, whatever tortured reasoning you want. Wait for some tragic episode of gun violence; then tell folks that you’re just looking out for their safety. Then watch what happens.

    It’s not going to matter whether your cities, or counties, or states have declared themselves pro- or anti- Second Amendment. Your CITIZENS will show you the folly of your reasoning. It will not be pretty, but you will have no doubt about the People’s sentiment. Send in the police, deputize the National Guard, stand day after day in front of the cameras decrying the violence that is headed your way. That’s what’s coming.

    People will quietly tolerate a lot of b.s. because they realize that things will change and someday it will be their turn to make stupid rules. But there is a line in each of their hearts that they will not cross, nor will they allow anyone to push them across. When they reach that point, they will resist, and it will not matter to them which or how many stupid or unconstitutional laws they have to break to ensure that the America they know and love will survive.

    Thank you. That comment should be hung on every American patriots’ wall.

    The idiots running VA honestly believe violence will only go one direction.

    These people live in a fantasy world.

    And the minute Trump federalizes the VA NG, the Dems will start screaming about States’ rights.

    Gotta love it …
