The Virginia Gun Ban just passed the VA House by very narrow margins. HB 961 passed the House by a vote of 51-48 votes, in favor of the ban. The interesting thing, is that there are 55 democrats, meaning that some of them voted nay to the sweeping anti-gun bill.
This is great news, especially since a few of the house democrats are also suspected to be against the gun ban.
I’m not sure anyone saw this coming, but the VA Senate is led by only two seats by the democrats. What this means, is that if just a couple of them vote against the ban (and as long as the republicans do their job), it’s done.
If senators in any 2A sanctuary areas want to keep their job they should vote the way the people in their area want–which is a solid “NO.”
There are a few senators who could very well change the way this looks. If all the republicans vote how they should, against the gun ban, with a few democrat flips, this ban could essentially die in its tracks.
At least, it could die for now.
The house democrats took to Twitter praise themselves for their anti-Constitutional leanings, to which I left a reply that should be similar to the way we’re all thinking. They want “safety” while they threaten to take away our guns.
Kind of seems unsafe, to me.
So, what can we do to ensure that this thing falls flat on its face? Well, for one, if you live in Virginia you need to contact your senator and let them know that this is an unconstitutional ban on the right to keep and bear arms.
Let them know that if they come out and vote “yes” to this bill that you won’t be voting for them to get reelected when it’s time.
Also, contact all of your friends throughout the state and let them know that there is still time. We can still beat this. Tell them to contact their officials to say the same thing. An even bigger result will occur if you’re a democrat with gun-owning democrat friends. I know you’re out there, and we need your help.
There’s still time for peace, and I pray we can have it.
