Dems Warn Virginia Sheriffs Refusing To Enforce Gun-Control Laws They’ll Send In The National Guard


Virginia Democrats are floating prosecution and deployment of the National Guard if the police don’t enforce their gun control measures.

Democratic Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin: “And ultimately, I’m not the governor, but the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law,” he said. “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.”

Democratic congressmen from Virginia are threatening sheriffs in their state who have warned they will not enforce harsh state-level gun laws that violate Second Amendment rights, suggesting they could be prosecuted if they are unwilling to resign, that their sheriff’s office could lose funding, or most stridently, that the National Guard be called in to enforce the gun-control measures.

“Over 75 counties in Virginia have so far adopted such Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions in the commonwealth, the latest being Spotsylvania County,” The Washington Examiner reports.

In November, the Virginia Democratic party won total control of the General Assembly for the first time in a quarter-century. That enabled them to push gun-control legislation. Incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw drafted a bill whose summary stated that it: Expands the definition of “assault firearm” and prohibits any person from importing, selling, transferring, manufacturing, purchasing, possessing, or transporting an assault firearm. A violation is a Class 6 felony. The bill prohibits a dealer from selling, renting, trading, or transferring from his inventory an assault firearm to any person. The bill also prohibits a person from carrying a shotgun with a magazine that will hold more than seven rounds of the longest ammunition for which it is chambered in a public place; under existing law, this prohibition applies only in certain localities. The bill makes it a Class 1 misdemeanor to import, sell, barter, or transfer any firearm magazine designed to hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. More

The Virginia National Guard has now responded after a Democratic Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin suggested the governor could use them to enforce new gun-control measures.
