Just came from the Greene Co. meeting, smallest county in Virginia had several hundred there. Got to go to work early so I couldnt wait for the vote, but I think I know which way the wind will blow.
not trying to understate the stupidity and wrongness of the bill(s), but they were singling out semi-auto rifles and pistols with threaded muzzles and/or other scary attributes. not bolt guns (but of course that can change...).I think I read threaded muzzle being one of the things that makes it an assault rifle. That will get a whole lot of bolt actions. Foot to the floor. We are all rooting for you.
This is hear say on my part but,....All city's an states have electrical choke points/lynch pins every last one of them of them. Somethings in fact can be disrupted by simply blocking a Mw path. Again so I am told.We all know how to shut down a city. Wouldn’t take that many men.
Was just talking with co-workers about that this morning. And I work for a media company, a radio news network. Minimal coverage is being given to any of this in the Northern VA/DC area. What tiny blurbs that do appear on the local TV newscasts cover the 2nd Amendment Sanctuary votes very briefly, without mentioning anything about what's inspiring the movement. Almost like, "Oh wow, here's what those paranoid gun nuts are up to". I've been seeing alot of stuff on Facebook about the movement as well, and have taken to "sharing" every last little bit of info on the topic with my list of friends. Just to spread awareness. I was stunned at the number of people, gun people at that, that I know that had no clue about the bills that have been proposed. A few of them I believe who voted Democrat in November's election. Surprise!!It is also depressing how little coverage this is getting in the main stream media. Washington Post has nothing on it. Nearly an entire state standing up against political over-reach and doing it in a very respectable, honorable fashion. WTF? It would be nice if Drudge Report picked up some local media coverage, because they are covering it. Snipers Hide is the leading source of coverage, and this is all grass roots. (I imagine the boys on ARCOM are covering it too, but I don't frequent that site). Nice work Hide!
This is my major issue. Driving down a long ways and need a parking spot that works. Hopefully I'm bringing down some supporters in a car pool, but still, parking my wife's big ass Suburban is a major concern.To me, that's key in making the numbers large. If you have an organized, published place to go and park and step on a shuttle bus that drops you off and picks you up and the door, then you'll get a lot more people.
Local politicians don’t pull this crap were I’m from. I vote that those in Virginia that wanna talk about people that should have voted need to finish the job and hang politicians from a rope.People didn't get out and vote for those that represent their beliefs. Now they are going to stand by with this bullshit faux sanctuary. All the while knowing that once this is passed it's not going to be removed from the books. The left side will wait for your grandchildren to plant flowers on the graves of the Patriots to enforce it.
Bottom line.......not voting caused this. Not getting involved locally to get someone to represent your ideals caused this.
