Virginia Gun Sales Soar As Dems Consider Draconian "Assault Weapons" Ban

• by Tyler Durden

Unsurprisingly, many Virginians feel strongly about preserving their second amendment rights, and the state has traditionally enforced a more permissive stance toward firearm ownership. But now, lawmakers are tossing around ideas like an "assault weapons ban" - language that has been criticized as vague and even nonsensical. Several moderate Democrats have even expressed reservations about supporting a sweeping gun-control bill if it includes the ban.

"A lot of people don't really understand assault weapons and how complicated the issue really is," said Democratic Sen. John Edwards. "It's going to be very difficult to figure out a way to do it. But we're studying it, that's all I can say."

And yet, lawmakers are pressing ahead, prompting a vicious backlash that has even prompted Gov. Northam to declare a state of Emergency because armed militia groups planned to storm the capitol.

Well the serfs of Virginia got what they voted for. And must live with the results. The Democraps wanted to ban or at least greatly restrict the peons of the US from owning any gun. Who ever heard of any master allowing their slaves owning guns? Yet they were foolish enough to vote them in to a point of majority power in all houses plus the governor palace. When they stifle the protest this time with the power of the now socialist state, Antifa goons to ensure trouble is to be had and finally the MSM who are nothing but socialist progressive liberal democrat party hacks. They will use that to enact even more laws to disarm the smelly masses they so distrain.
