22 Virginia Counties Declare Second Amendment Sanctuary Status

(Breitbart) – Nearly two dozen counties in Virginia have declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status ahead of Democrats taking control of the state legislature in 2020.

Gun control Democrats won the night on November 5, 2019, securing enough seats to take control of the Virginia legislature. On November 8, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Gov. Ralph Northam (D) reacted to the victory by planning a war on guns.

This war includes the implementation of numerous gun controls that have been in place in states like California for decades and have proven impotent to hinder, much less prevent, high-profile firearm-based attacks.

On November 23, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Appomattox, Giles, and Dinwiddie Counties each declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status, but they are not the only ones. WSLS reports that the number of Second Amendment Sanctuary counties is now at 22.

The 19 counties in addition to Appomattox, Giles, and Dinwiddie are:

  • Bland
  • Botetourt
  • Campbell
  • Carroll
  • Charlotte
  • Dickenson
  • Henry
  • King William
  • Lee
  • Madison
  • New Kent
  • Nottoway
  • Patrick
  • Pittsylvania
  • Powhatan
  • Southampton
  • Sussex
  • Washington
  • Wythe

Flashback: CNN’s Chris Cuomo: 2nd Amendment Didn’t Mean ‘Individual Right’ To Bear Arms ‘Until Scalia Read It In’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo used a tweet Thursday to suggest the Second Amendment only protected a collective right until Supreme Justice Antonin Scalia read an “individual right” into it.

Cuomo tweeted:

Notice the last sentence of Cuomo’s tweet, “If you are an originalist about the constitution you have no basis for thinking you and not the state control access.” He is saying because the Second Amendment only protects a collective right, in his opinion, then the true originalist position is to believe you only have guns if the state says so.

Cuomo did not say whether freedom of speech and religion (First Amendment), the freedom to pursue and possess private property (Third Amendment), and to be secure in our “persons, houses, papers, and effects” (Fourth Amendment) is collective as well. In other words, do we need state permission to speak freely, worship freely, do with our things as we would, and enjoy security in papers and effects?

  1. yes remind the politicians need to be remined that we pay their salary and we are the ones in control election coming up vote REPUBLICAN and keep America going forward not back like the DEMOCRATS want a big ALL RIGHT to those 22 counties . my personal property I have put as a 2nd amendment sanctuary and also sanctuary allowing only American citizens on it .

  2. Wow…..Impressive!! Time for all the other states to get involved!! We currently have a load of *ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT* sanctuary cities…. Now let’s give our Constitution a higher level of protection – especially the Second Amendment!! Fight-back hard America…..This is OUR damned country!!

  3. I am very proud of my county of Madison for standing with the constitution and our citizens. Waiting to see Culpeper join the fight.

  4. If you really want to understand what is going on in our government, I urge (even beg) you to read Andrew Breibart’s book called “Righteous Indignation” or at least watch Glenn Beck’s recent video called “The Democrat Hydra” on YouTube. Glenn’s video provides factual documents and text messages obtained through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) and not conspiracy theory. If you agree this information is correct, you can do your part like I am by spreading it around. Yes, I keep posting this in hopes to reach new readers. We need to do something, not just talk about it.

  5. Amazing how the dems have absolutely no use for the Constitution they took an oath to defend, no wonder the next civil war continues to brew !!

  6. Ooops, Cuomo, your ignorance is showing. The Second Amendment reads:

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    What this means is that citizens have the right, individually, to “keep and bear arms”, since a militia is by usual definition an ad hoc assembly of individual citizens (as opposed to a regimented and hierarchical army), who are thus free to take up those arms in defense of their liberty (which can conceivably be threatened by established, standing armies under the control of a political and/or military elite. One of the first things would-be despots attempt is to take away the arms from common citizens– once they have been disarmed, it becomes infinitely easier to impose a tyranny over them. Ever since this Amendment was passed in 1791 this has been the explicit meaning imputed to the it. Cuomo’s assertion that it never guaranteed individual gun ownership until Justice Antonin Scalia “read it into it” is ludicrously risible and shows that the man has no grasp whatsoever of American civics. He is, in a word, a moron.

    • Sorry for the typos! No way of editing here, alas…

      I meant “imputed to it” but had written “imputed to the Amendment”, a redundancy, and in correcting it I should have removed the “the” as well as “Amendment’…

  7. Temporary politicians that come and go with the extreme arrogance to change a nation they did not establish or in most cases their people did not arrive till 200+ years too late. so many in the (D) party are newbies that have shallow roots and loyalty.

  8. Considering Chris Cuomo’s employer (CNN) and all the ass he had to kiss in order to get where he is, it comes as no great surprise regarding his perverted interpretation of 2A.
    Since I wasn ‘t informed of his appointment to the Supreme Court BY ANYONE, I must assume that he’s just another Marxist turd in the sewer.

  9. The liberals have twisted the meaning of the Second Amendment for many years now and they still don’t what it means or why the framers put it in.
    This is just another step on our way to a revolution in our country! Semper Fi !!!

  10. I’m waiting for Chesterfield County to join with these counties and declare Chesterfield County a 2d Amendment Sanctuary as well.

  11. Politicians need to be reminded from time to time that the people are in control, and that they are there only by the will of the people.

  12. Interesting how the democrats were able to over ride the voice and will of the people of Virginia with their Richmond and Fairfax suburb votes. I wonder if these localities also were mailed packages of fake and forged driver licenses ?
