    Police say: In Virginia, Law-Abiding Gun Owners are the Real Problem

    I accidentally clicked on an ad, and it took me to this teaser about a story from my local ABC affiliate in the Lynchburg and Roanoke area that ran on Monday.



    Local police agencies say that legal gun owners may actually be part of the growing problem of crime scenes at gunpoint.


    New research shows criminals are getting their hands on serious weapons at an alarming rate.


    This was one day after Democrats swept the state house, announcing they will ram through gun control.


    My 2A friends and I are all speculating what they’ll propose, and the complicit fourth estate here seems to be setting up the ball for a spike. “Safe storage” laws comin’ right up!

    If only “safe storage” is where it will stop. Remember that following the Virginia Beach shooting, Governor Ralph Coonman Northam and anti-gun legislators have proposed a wide range of limits on the right to keep and bear arms including . . .



    • “Extreme risk protection orders” AKA a red flag confiscation law
    • Universal background checks
    • A one-gun-a-month purchase limit…that used to be law in the Old Dominion until it was repealed in 2012
    • An assault weapons ban
    • Magazine capacity limits


    Northam can’t wait to get going.

    Northam said in a statement Tuesday night after Democrats won at least 21 of 40 seats in the state Senate and 51 seats in the 100-member House of Delegates that the “ground has shifted in Virginia government.”


    “Since I took office two years ago, we have made historic progress as a Commonwealth,” he added. “Tonight, Virginians made it clear they want us to continue building on that progress.”


    The governor went on to argue that the results signaled that voters wanted state lawmakers to take action on issues such as gun safety and climate change.

    The newly-elected legislators will be sworn into office in January and the Governor and Democrats are vowing to push through their slate of gun control laws and limits almost immediately.


    If you live in Virginia, plan (and buy) accordingly.

    In addition to being famous for wearing blackface, the Governor may soon also be known as the greatest gun salesman in Virginia history. At least until the new legislature takes control.
    The saddest epitaph which can be carved in memory of a vanished liberty is that it was lost because its possessors failed to stretch forth a saving hand while yet there was time. — JUSTICE GEORGE SUTHERLAND (1938)

    so, law abiding gun owners are the problem, not the criminals who steal them and use them to commit crimes.
