  • Second Amendment Sanctuary

    I'm sure all the liberals here will support these acts of resistance!

    In Virginia, and elsewhere, gun supporters prepare to defy new laws


    They were here to demand that the Board of Supervisors declare Amelia County a “Second Amendment sanctuary” where officials will refuse to enforce any new restrictions on gun ownership.

    A resistance movement is boiling up in Virginia, where Democrats rode a platform on gun control to historic victories in state elections earlier this month. The uprising is fueled by a deep cultural gulf between rural red areas that had long wielded power in Virginia and the urban and suburban communities that now dominate. Guns are the focus. Behind that, there is a sense that a way of life is being cast aside.

    In the past two weeks, county governments from the central Piedmont to the Appalachian Southwest — Charlotte, Campbell, Carroll, Appomattox, Patrick, Dinwiddie, Pittsylvania, Lee and Giles — have approved resolutions that defy Richmond to come take their guns.

    It mirrors a trend that began last year in western parts of the United States, where some law enforcement officials vowed to go to jail rather than enforce firearm restrictions, and has spread eastward. In New Mexico, 25 of 33 counties declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries after the state expanded background checks. In Illinois, nearly two-thirds of its counties have done the same.

    Will it be secession, or civil war?
    Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.

      Won't secession lead to civil war?

        Neither, but I imagine there'll be stockpiles of guns here and there.

            No. For example

            1) the American 'Civil War' was by definition not a civil war, since the South was not fighting to rule the North. It was a failed war of independence.
            2) The North could have allowed them to peacefully secede, but peaceful secession is rare.

              I'm taking the long-term view here. The division is only increasing.

                Once again, I'm sure our liberal friends will applaud this act of resistance!

                VA sheriff says he’d ‘deputize thousands’ of citizens to exclude them from state gun bans

                  Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know, you love your guns. But we love our kids and our grand kids even more. Relax, no one is trying to take your prescious guns away, we're trying to save peoples, particularly kids, lives.

                    You're more likely to get killed by falling off a ladder than with a gun. According to the CDC, guns aren't even in the Top 10 causes of death in the United States.

                    Than a fool in the eyes of God

                      Do you have kids, MM. I doubt it. But how would you like it if they had to worry about the possibility of being gunned down every day while they're in school, at the mall, or at the movies. It's not just about the murders, although that's bad enough.

                        In fact, I have three kids, and I'm more worried about them getting hit by car than I am about them being shot.

                          Sure, but thats not what I asked. I asked you about them, your kids, not about you.

                            They're not worried about it, either.

                              If states can defy constitutional federal laws then counties can defy constitutional state laws.

                              Might end up revisiting incorporation so this may not be a good idea for 2A enthusiasts...
