The similarities in demographics in population between Virginia and Minnesota are inescapable. Both states are large, solid red expanses of land and people, surrounding small, densely populated democrat dominated Metropolitan areas.
And of course, both states have Democratic parties prone to going wild on orgies of spending and power grabbing whenever they get unfettered power. As the Democrats did in Virginia over the past year, driving a wave of “progressive” legislation pretty much across-the-board, but especially focusing on gun control.
And watching Virginia’s Democrats, it’s not hard to think that they might actually be a little bit calm and restrained compared to the ones we have in Minnesota, the party of Ryan Winkler and Alondra Cano and Melissa Melissa and Ilhan Omar.￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
It’s hard to imagine what that crew would stop at if they got unrestrained power Dash say, by flipping the Senate this fall, giving them raw, unfettered access to all the money and all the power.
This isn’t problem just for Second Amendment advocates, of course.
But Second amendment￼ advocates are among the best organized￼￼ to do something about it; I’ve been telling conservative groups for a decade that they need to learn something from the Second Amendment movement nationwide.
Four Minnesota counties – Clearwater, Marshall, Roseau and Wadena – have declared themselves “sanctuaries” for the Second amendment (some choose the term “dedicated” to avoid confusion with immigration issue – the effect is entirely the same). ￼It’s not just a symbolic statement; the resolutions include language about litigation against intrusive legislation, as well as well as demurrals from enforcing unconstitutional laws.￼. Resolutions have been introduced in three more counties – and probably a few dozen more have some degree of activity on the subject.
Yours could be one of them, if you live in Minnesota; in fact, you could be the one to get things going in your county. The Gun Owners Caucus￼ has a list of resources right here, as well as a list of sanctuary/dedicated county groups around the state.
Because what better way to show the DFL; This Is What Power-Drunk Overreach gets you.
