VA Dems Drop AR-15 Confiscation After 1000s Of NRA Members Show

(Breitbart) – Virginia Democrats withdrew an AR-15 confiscation bill Monday after thousands of NRA members showed up to oppose new gun controls.

The NRA asked members to flood the January 13, 2020, Virginia Senate meetings and ensure pro-Second Amendment voices drowned out those calling for gun control.

Video from hallways outside the meetings showed NRA members responded en masse:

The Washington Free Beacon reports the presence of thousands of NRA members “appeared to have an impact.” Democrats withdrew a bill aimed at AR-15 confiscation and moderated other gun control proposals.

But NRA-ILA Virginia state director Daniel Spiker made clear the changes, though good, were not enough.

He said, “While there were some improvements to some of these bills, overall, it’s still bad legislation. Putting in more regulations and making it more onerous on the law-abiding citizens of Virginia is not something we stand for.”

Richard Cosner, a Chester, Virginia, preacher, was present to oppose new gun controls.

He pointed out attempts to legislate gun control serve as a way to usurp the Constitution: “The Constitution is specific; it ‘shall not be infringed.’ If somebody wants to restrict those rights then they need to follow it by altering the Constitution, not by putting in place legislation that is in conflict with the Constitution.”

  1. We should be vigilant. I heard on WMAL radio that they are introducing bills that are designed to subvert the will of the citizens like doing away with voter IDs, extending the term of the governor to eight years, and making the electoral college votes align with the national popular vote.

    • I’m surprised they want to eliminate voter IDs. One would expect them to take the opposite approach as California and New York have by issuing drivers licenses to illegals. Those are, among other things, defacto voter ID cards. And we wonder how Hillary got enough votes in California to override the national popular vote?

  2. SORRY VA VOTERS YOU GET THE KIND OF LEADERSHIP YOU VOTE FOR.
    THIS GOVERNOR IS A DISASTER AND NOW YOU HAVE GIVEN HIM A MAJORITY AND NOW THE SKY IS THE LIMIT.

    • Yes, Lins Roberts, you are so right. Never thought that Virginia would turn insane left. The demographics and flooding of VA. suburbs with Dem. voters is having a negative impact on the morals and following of Constitution in Virginia. You had a situation where the Governor and Lt.
      Gov. should have been ousted and it is brushed over or ignored. Glad to see NRA hold it’s own against the assembly. Republicans need to retake those seats.

  3. I agree with you Willie. The bible also says we war not against flesh but principalities of darkness. I encourage all to keep in prayer for our leaders our nation and the world. I pray the swamp be completely exposed and knocked on it’s heels and the powers that be that we can’t see be laid to waist.

  4. Yep…..to reiterate……Thanks Virginia NRA men and women!! To give in to any new gun regulations is to open the door to further and even more restrictive regulations……the socialists will not stop trying to take away our 2nd Amendment Right.

  5. Two things that will trigger a reveloution here in this country, trying to take the guns and impeaching Trump. I believe that millions of people will hit the streets with guns, including the army, navy, marines and 90% of the Veterans in this country, to keep Trump in office and if this happens, we will have a new party, THE AMERICAN PARTY, AND EVERYONE IN WASHINGTON WILL BE OUT BY LOST OF JOB OR IN JAIL. WE THE SLIENT MAJORTY IS FED UP.

  6. Nothing will happen to her. The slithering creatures are immune to any penalty. There is a large cartel of the miscreants who constantly provide protection for their buddies.

    • 2 Peter 3:4 (KJV) 4 And saying, “Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
      Take heart, just because it hasn’t come to fruition yet doesn’t mean it won’t. The change is coming slowly and what we’re witnessing is the awakening of the American public to the real evil that’s been running things. The swamp, and not just D.C. but worldwide, is being drained gradually. Before y’know it we’ll be back on the gold standard and things will be running like the founders had planned. 17!
