GUNPOINT TYRANNY: Democrat tyrants in Virginia threaten to use the National Guard to enforce draconian new gun laws
12/12/2019 // JD Heyes // Views

There is seldom a day that goes by when some Democrat somewhere — in Congress, in a statehouse, in a city council meeting — doesn’t call President Donald Trump a Nazi or a dictator or a king.

And yet, the man can barely govern. Nearly all of his executive orders are challenged in federal courts, he can’t get Congress to authorize many of his legislative proposals, and he’s about to be impeached.

But he’s a dictator. 

Actually, for a king, Donald Trump makes a real good constitutionalist. He has appointed one originalist after another to the judiciary, talks of an ‘America first’ foreign policy, and refuses to allow Americans — even those who despise him — from being abused by globalists.

As for dictators, Democrats are filling those shoes nicely. In every jurisdiction they control, they pick and choose which laws they want to enforce and which laws they want to ignore. The two most popular categories of law Democrats routinely dismiss are those prohibiting recreational use of marijuana and those dealing with illegal immigrants.

But let a conservative or constitutionalist threaten to ignore a Democrat-passed law — say, one having to do with more gun control or even gun confiscations — and the Donkey Party gets very, very angry.

How dare you challenge their authority!? (Related: Virginia sheriffs lining up to support ‘gun sanctuaries’ while daring state Democrats to come take their guns.)

You may have read lately that newly empowered Democrats in Virginia are threatening to pass a slew of anti-Second Amendment laws that are already being challenged by constitutionalists around the state. Conservatives are establishing “Second Amendment sanctuaries” along the lines of “sanctuary cities” for illegal aliens that Democrats in Virginia have established.


That’s annoying to the Donkey Party. So much so that some of its members are threatening to call out the National Guard to enforce their unconstitutional legislation, risking the lives of them and fellow Virginians and plunging at least one state into civil war.

The ‘consent of the governed’ is not what Democrats seek

The Washington Examiner reports: 

Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill say local police who do not enforce gun control measures likely to pass in Virginia should face prosecution and even threats of the National Guard.

After November's Virginia Legislature elections that led to Democrats taking control of both chambers, the gun control legislation proposed by some Democrats moved forward, including universal background checks, an “assault weapons” ban, and a red flag law.

What arrogance. What hubris. What hypocrisy.

“I would hope they either resign in good conscience, because they cannot uphold the law which they are sworn to uphold, or they're prosecuted for failure to fulfill their oath,” Democratic Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly told the Washington Examiner regarding claims by some county police who say they will refuse to enforce future gun control measures. “The law is the law. If that becomes the law, you don't have a choice, not if you're a sworn officer of the law.” 

Democratic Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin then went so far as to suggest that Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam could call out the Guard to enforce the law.

“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.”

Thus far, 75 counties in Virginia have passed “sanctuary” ordinances. 

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, meanwhile, vowed that when — when — Democrats in Richmond pass new gun control laws, “they will be enforced.”

Well, good luck with that, Mr. Herring.

Democrats in the age of President Trump are so perpetually enraged they can’t wait to exercise their authority, even if it means endangering — or taking — the lives of their own residents. 

They forget that we live in a republic and those in power derive it from the consent of the governed.
