you’re fearmongering. he’s not a “tyrant,” he’s just a politician. I’m sure I’ve said here before that I’m a gun owner, with two sidearms two hunting rifles and a shotgun, and I often rent out assault rifles from my local range. we’re friends. as a gun owner I hardly think that any of the bills being passed are unreasonable, and I think that the ones stroked down are ones that definitively should not be passed. as long as my state government is reflecting that I’m not touching with a hundred mile pole any “rallies” full of the same hotheaded asses packing heat that terrorized charlottesville—something which is still very much in the mind’s eye of virginians.
here are the bills that were passed by the senate if you’re interested:
Quote from:
First is SB 70, which would establish mandatory background checks for any transfer of firearms, including private sales. That bill, amid the priorities outlined in Gov. Northam's agenda for the 2020 session, passed the Senate on 23-17 vote, with two Republicans joining Democrats to support it.

It exempts transfers between immediate family members and by estate administrators, as well as transfers during lawful activities at shooting ranges or similar spaces designed for target practice. It also exempts temporary transfers that occur while the owner is present or are necessary to prevent death or bodily harm. Additionally, it allows transfers of antique firearms, transfers that are part of a buy-back or give-back program and those that occur by operation of law.

Also passed by the full Senate were SB 69 and SB 35.

Senate Bill 69 would institute a "one gun a month" law for Virginia limiting citizens to one handgun purchase within any 30-day period.

It exempts those with valid Virginia concealed handgun permits and those replacing a lost or stolen handgun, as well as law enforcement agencies, state and local correctional facilities, private security companies and those with special circumstances with a background check from Virginia State Police. It also exempts purchases made during a private sale for a personal collection of rare or historical items.

Virginia used to have a version of the same law, so it would essentially restore the commonwealth's previous rule. It passed on 21-19 vote along party lines.

Senate Bill 35 gives local governments the authority to ban the possession of firearms in public spaces during events which require a permit, like protests. It passed on a 21-19 party line vote as well.
essentially, you can’t buy a bag of twenty guns, threats posed by organized events can be neutralized by local governments (key words here, most local govts in va are pretty right, a dude brought a gun to his town council meeting unannounced recently and his proposal still passed lmao), and there are reasonable background checks.
the red flag bill, on the other hand, is a preventative—albeit somewhat questionable—measure so that the gun groups in virginia that point guns in the air and shout things don’t decide to point it back down.
Quote from:
Firearms; removal from persons posing substantial risk; penalties. Creates a procedure by which any attorney for the Commonwealth or any law-enforcement officer may apply to a general district court, circuit court, or juvenile and domestic relations district court judge or magistrate for an emergency substantial risk order to prohibit a person who poses a substantial risk of injury to himself or others from purchasing, possessing, or transporting a firearm. If an emergency substantial risk order is issued, a judge or magistrate may issue a search warrant to remove firearms from such person. An emergency substantial risk order shall expire on the fourteenth day following issuance of the order. The bill requires a court hearing in the circuit court for the jurisdiction where the order was issued within 14 days from issuance of an emergency substantial risk order to determine whether a substantial risk order should be issued. Seized firearms shall be retained by a law-enforcement agency for the duration of an emergency substantial risk order or a substantial risk order or, for a substantial risk order and with court approval, may be transferred to a third party 21 years of age or older chosen by the person from whom they were seized. The bill allows the complainant of the original warrant to file a motion for a hearing to extend the substantial risk order prior to its expiration. The court may extend the substantial risk order for a period not longer than 180 days. The bill provides that persons who are subject to a substantial risk order, until such order has been dissolved by a court, are guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor for purchasing, possessing, or transporting a firearm; are disqualified from having a concealed handgun permit; and may not be employed by a licensed firearms dealer. The bill also provides that a person who transfers a firearm to a person he knows has been served with a warrant or who is the subject of a substantial risk order is guilty of a Class 4 felony. The bill creates a computerized substantial risk order registry for the entry of orders issued pursuant to provisions in the bill.
you being strong advocates for your second amendment rights, you should agree that you want sane and convincing people portraying these groups, as opposed to alleged neo nazis or any of the other terrorists from three years ago.

regarding northam and my state government—I really don’t care enough about them personally to white knight anyone. he’s a democrat and most of what he says or does is politician garbage, and it’s not much more than a gut feeling when I say that I think I could trust him in a real crCIA, after seeing how he went to vmi and served first as a medic, and then a pediatric neurologist. however, the response from federal politicians is unprecedented and have done nothing but raise tensions (and they should know that). this is especially given that the (unfortunately unnamed) “imminent threat” that northam claimed is one of the biggest mistakes of his declaration, a phrase recently used by our president (one of the biggest offenders of raising tensions here) was very recently used to justify his own crusades.

I have a lot of friends in richmond. I have a lot of friends in charlottesville. along with any other part of virginia. yes the dems dumb loving bills might affect my ability to get a gun in twenty something years if I start talking about how I hate minorities, but it would affect me more to see these friends and family under threat again. so pardon me for loving “shilling”

what changed him

« on: Yesterday at 10:53:16 AM »
although he was driven by the usually liberal support of the lower class, it ultimately just makes the election more accurate. anyways it didn’t pass whatsoever so it’s moot

« on: Yesterday at 08:59:46 AM »
you forget the part where he upped the voting requirement because he found out it wasn't going to go the way he wanted
how is allowing more representation a bad thing lol

« on: Yesterday at 06:27:23 AM »
the abortion thing was really terribly misconstrued and he amended what he said afterwards, and the blackface was a gorillion years ago
as a governor he’s at least someone I can trust to be level headed lol I don’t care what party he is. he’s really obscenely qualified too

the comments on this video are absolutely nuts. he’s not marching into your house to steal your guns, nor is he marching into a hospital and stabbing your child. I mean fr its still virginia down here lmao
