Virginia Is For Lovers
« on: December 24, 2019, 12:05:34 am »
Hi Folks,

You've heard about political efforts to legislate firearm laws in Virginia. If not, please click (or copy/paste) the link to a face book account by one Steve Huff.

https://www.facebook.com/steve.huff.9081?__tn__=%2CdCH-R-R&eid=ARDyiT5-9PQq7ZRNYGUXg5FuvVkd0USR5CG6DL_Xe5c_JE1rVKfEU2FLFdvYfDfu4YSxg3Es0-df0wT8&hc_ref=ART_hev0w7b-2AIha9HR_8Y5ZLG7u31XXKTE4RT9Jqp2PAUk2QdTL-nQPCMgHlpdQpQ&fref=nf

Also, please read this article:

If the Virginia legislators want to push this issue, it could get ugly.

And oh, by the way, plan on seeing the vast majority of the Virginia National Guard become Conscientious Objectors. It will be really hard for them to arrest cops and confiscate guns when none of them will carry the necessary arms to enforce said arrests and confiscations.

How do I know this? I am one of them and will be one of the first to lay down my gun and walk away.


Now,... what's Virginia's state motto? Something about lovers???

Nah! It's SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS.

I think it means BLANK YOU TYRANTS.

Thank you for protecting the most important right we have in America.  Never forget that it protects all of our other rights.

Great post Sal.

X 3 from one Navy veteran to the others   :wink:
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Hi Folks,

Government/Politicians never back down completely. Ask for it all,... but settle for some. Then,... DO IT AGAIN!

It's an old joke, but when the government tells you you don't need a gun,... YOU NEED A GUN!

Sal one would think that most Republicans and Democrats would be like minded on this issue? Everyone should have the right to defend themselves and their family at all times. This is a basic right.
