The Commonwealth of Virginia has been ablaze as of late, as supporters of the Second Amendment continue to worry about the statehouse’s sudden Democratic majority, and what could become of their right to bear arms.
A number of proposed laws currently being considered by the state government are considered to be unconstitutional by many, including one that would force owners of so-called “assault” weapons to be licensed and registered with law enforcement. The concern here is that, should the state or federal government turn authoritarian, this would be the simplest way to round up the weapons needed for a rebellion.
Now, as the tensions continue to mount in Old Dominion, the Mountain State next door has a bold plan to protect those citizens from their government: Annex them.
Governor Jim Justice (R) on Tuesday invited Virginia counties weighed down by Democrat gun control to secede from the Old Dominion and become part of West Virginia.
During a joint press conference with Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Justice said, “A long time ago, the infringement of fundamental values” led to the formation of West Virginia. This point comes as Virginia Democrats continue their focused attack on Second Amendment rights; it comes as more than 100 local governments in Virginia have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries in the face of infringement on fundamental gun rights.
Justice added, “West Virginia is an incredible state…If you’re not truly happy with where you are, we stand with open arms to take you from Virginia or wherever you may be. We stand strongly behind the Second Amendment, we stand strongly behind the unborn.”
Just days ago, a massive rally took place in Richmond, the capital of Virginia, in which thousands of pro-Second Amendment supporters marched on the statehouse to demand that these legislations be abandoned.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
