VA Gov Northam Plans for Gun Confiscation

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) of blackface and post-birth abortion fame is working on numerous gun control measures including the possible confiscation of weapons he deems to be ‘assault weapons.’

Democrats control all three branches of government. They control the Commonwealth’s General Assembly — flipping both the Senate and the House of Delegates from red to blue majorities. The Democratic Party now controls not only Virginia’s legislature but holds the governorship, lieutenant governorship, attorney general, and both U.S. Senate seats.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Northam wants to bring back eight “common-sense” gun-control measures that Republicans were able to stop.

The new measures will include “universal background checks, banning the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, restoring the law that limits purchases to one gun a month, and a red flag law that would empower a court to temporarily remove a gun from a person deemed to be a risk to himself or others.”

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Northam wants to bring back his gun control measures, including confiscation.

When asked directly about whether he is supportive of confiscating “assault weapons from gun owners” Northam replied, “That’s something I’m working [on] with our secretary of public safety. I’ll work with the gun violence activists, and we’ll work [on] that. I don’t have a definite plan today.”

He might proceed incrementally at first. That’s what leftists do.

On Tuesday, Virginia voters handed Democrats total control of the commonwealth.

Democrats today are far-left. According to the Post, Northam made it clear Virginia is now a [deep] blue state.

CNBC reported that Everytown for Gun Safety — a Bloomberg gun-grabbing group — spent $2.5 million to swing the election left, The Daily Wire reports.

If you take guns from law-abiding citizens, the only ones who will have guns are criminals and terrorists.

Correction. We inadvertently put an ‘R’ after Governor Northam’s name. He’s a Democrat.

Democrat voters that completely turn their rights over to power hungry baby killer’s are going to learn the hard way ,with no sense of past history and the complete ignorance that they will stop at guns is complete insanity, there is no law on a piece of paper that will keep you and your family safe that is utterly preposterous. They are already murdering babies with that mindset who is next?

This man is already way out of control with just his support for infanticide. Now, if he thinks Virginians are going to willingly give up their guns to the state’s liberal bureaucrats, he’s in for a huge awakening. If he dares to try forceful confiscation of guns (and he’s threatening to bring in the military if necessary), I predict it will be the start of a civil war that could spread quickly across the nation.
There are 2 reasons that Virginia has basically turned liberal. First, the federal government has become so bloated over the past few decades that the once conservative Northern Virginia counties/cities of Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, and Loudoun have been completely overrun by liberal government employees. Unfortunately, this leaves the rest of the state – which is generally red – without fair representation.
Second, many residents of Maryland have “immigrated” to Virginia in order to escape the exorbitant taxes in that very liberal state. Unfortunately, these new residents to our state appear to have not learned a lesson, as they continue to vote for the very party that motivated their move in the first place, culminating in the rise of taxes and other liberal policies in Virginia. I don’t get it.
What I do get is that the growth of the federal government bureaucracy has been extremely kind to the liberal areas in Northern Virginia, but detrimental to the citizens struggling in the many rural areas of the state. In addition, the amount of wealth that exists in the counties/cities outside of D.C. is extremely concentrated compared to the rest of America. I find that to be inexcusable and detrimental to the nation as a whole.
It’s time to start downsizing the role of the federal government. I would suggest the elimination of the Department of Education and the IR for starters.

Time for Conservative Virginians to vote with their feet. Find a red state that you like and go there. That will leave VA to the loons/liberals, just like CA, as someone else pointed out.

Then they get to experience the horrendous consequences of their fantasy politics. And when the SHTF, they will be the first to succumb to the hordes of hungry sociopaths that our inner cities have been breeding.

Shake the dust off your feet and don’t look back.
