Remember – when Progs soothingly, condescendingly coo “nobody’s coming to take your guns”, there’s always, always and implied “until we can get away with it” at the end.
Democrat in Virginia think they can get away with it.
Now, America’s real #resistance, in the form of 75 Virginia counties, have declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries”, with no intention of enforcing Governor and Chief Blackface Minstrel Ralph Northam’s gun confiscation laws.
Which has the salutary effect of getting some Virginia Democrats to screw up and let their inner id romp and play in public:
A U.S. congressman suggested that the Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam could deploy the National Guard to enforce gun laws in counties that have declared themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries.”
“Ultimately, I’m not the governor, but the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law,” Rep. Donald McEachin said, according to The Washington Examiner.“That’s his call, because I don’t know how serious these counties are and how severe the violations of law will be. But that’s obviously an option he has,” McEachin added.
Gov. Northam himself said on Wednesday that Virginia localities who refuse to enforce gun laws will face “consequences,” but did not allude to what those consequences could entail.
They want to sic the military on dissenters.
Scratch the surface of any “progressive” and you’ll eventually find a totalitarian waiting to get out. With some, you don’t have to scratch as hard.
The commandant of the Virginia Guard didn’t exactly quash the idea – but then, he’s a political appointee commenting on one of his boss, Governor Minstrel’s, idiot colleagues. I’ll cut him some slack.
But I’m going to guess that Governor Minstrel and Rep. McEachin are talking from an abundance of overconfidence in the loyalty of the Guard1. Most soldiers are drawn from the same class of people as the people who own the guns in the first place. I’m thinking Rep. McEachan might wind up going door to door himself, in his little pink kitty hat, at this rate.
Of course, “Protect” Minnesota, the legiion of the ignorant and depraved, was there with their own little authoritarian twist:
Slavery, segregation, poll taxes, “Separate but Equal” and Jews wearing yellow stars were all “the law”, “Reverend” Nord Bence.
Try again – and a little lighter on the “soullless totalitarian harpy” next time.
