OT - What's Going On in VA

Post by nchunterkw » Tue Feb 11, 2020 10:44 am

For those of you that live in Virginia, what's the real story with the gun legislation? Being closer to it that I, I figure y'all have some good insight.

My opinion, the radical left Dumacrooks are trying hard to turn in into a society where the government tells us how to act, and what we need to protect ourselves and family members. They attack our constitution every chance that they can without regard for law abiding citizens that have the right to keep and bare arms. If this constitutional right is taken away, what is next? An armed society is a safe society. The government needs to be tough on criminals, illegal immigration, and wasteful spending. Rant over!
The people of Virginia have spoken, the governing idiots are still pressing on as far as I know. I’m hoping that the federal government can pass a unified gun law for all legal citizens that allow us freedom to carry in ALL states, maybe I’m way out there with that one, but hopeful.
I’m hoping that the federal government takes all funding away from sanctuary cities and the states that they reside in! Ranting again, sorry. :eusa-deadhorse:

Well said!! :clap:
I remember back in the day when concealed carry was first looked at here in Texas. A lot of well meaning people ask me if I was concerned about people being legally able to carry a firearm.
I always told them, it is NOT my concern for the man or woman who passes a background check, attends the classes, and abides by the law. It is with the criminal element who has NO regard for the law or the safety of his fellow citizen. This is the element of society that concerns me. Both back then and even more so today!!

Dan, I agree with what you say. It funny in some regards your laws are lax compared to ours, but then other laws the polar opposite is true. Short barreled shotguns and shipping firearms in the mail for examples

Could someone please, for the outsiders, post up a reference to what is being tabled. Please post up something as factual as possible so we can all be on the same page.

We are also in a constant battle for gun laws up here. And it's taken quite some time to get to where we are at. Positive and negative. After all these fights, we have settled on some aspects of gun laws that actually work. And some that are completely rediculous

Well Chris, it’s kinda fell off the mainstream media around here. Basically they want to make assault rifles illegal. This would be by their definition for assault rifles, also no grandfather clause which would make anyone currently owning one a criminal.

It won’t stop there if it passes!

Living in Canada all my life. I’ve been around firearms. I started hunting as a young lad after taking a hunter’s safety course. I shot and snared rabbits for my grandmother who made the best rabbit pies.it always amazes me when the police post all the photos of ILLEGAL GUNS after a big bust. I legally own many firearms and have never been in trouble with the law. Yet my rights as a legal gun owner are constantly being challenged

What about this amnesty "haul" from Waterloo in 2017 the police were pumping and patting backs in the media for months. Good job guys! 2 air rifles, a 30" 870 and a bunch of Cooey's.

True that. Same boat.
Owned pistols since I could walk.
Never any trouble with the law.
Constantly under fire from the lefties.

Unfortunately we are often our own worst enemies.
If you look at the current related Petition demanding Due Democratic process for the bans the lefties are promoting, with three days left we have just shy of 170,000 signatures. While that is the most signed Petition in Canada of this nature, it pales in light of the 2 MILLION plus firearm owners here. That petition should be in the million plus range, but it seems most are quite willing to sit on their hands and do nothing. Extremely disappointing!! :thumbdown:

The noted Petition for any that might care: https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-2341

I’ve tried multiple time to sign that petition and have been rejected every time. Any ideas on how to get it signed?
