VA Dems Drop AR-15 Confiscation After 1000s of NRA Members Show

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

Virginia Democrats withdrew an AR-15 confiscation bill Monday after thousands of NRA members showed up to oppose new gun controls.

The NRA asked members to flood the January 13, 2020, Virginia Senate meetings and ensure pro-Second Amendment voices drowned out those calling for gun control. 

Video from hallways outside the meetings showed NRA members responded en masse:

The Washington Free Beacon reports the presence of thousands of NRA members “appeared to have an impact.” Democrats withdrew a bill aimed at AR-15 confiscation and moderated other gun control proposals.

But NRA-ILA Virginia state director Daniel Spiker made clear the changes, though good, were not enough.

He said, “While there were some improvements to some of these bills, overall, it’s still bad legislation. Putting in more regulations and making it more onerous on the law-abiding citizens of Virginia is not something we stand for.”

Richard Cosner, a Chester, Virginia, preacher, was present to oppose new gun controls.

He pointed out attempts to legislate gun control serve as a way to usurp the Constitution:  “The Constitution is specific; it ‘shall not be infringed.’ If somebody wants to restrict those rights then they need to follow it by altering the Constitution, not by putting in place legislation that is in conflict with the Constitution.”

    One cannot improve treason and sedition!

    “If somebody wants to restrict those rights then they need to follow it by altering the Constitution,”

    Well, it ain’t the constitution it’s the BILL OF RIGHTS & you can’t alter it.
    A subtle suggestion here from the man , sounds like to me.

    • Norm says:

      Yes, exactly… they can not be altered. What POS

    • galen says:

      “One cannot improve treason and sedition!”

      Love it, Katie. So precise.

      And I’ll add that even in that false reality, the NRA came late to the party and still the headline validates and credits it with the victory.

    they should be fearing the rope , and that be the reason they dropped it

    because 2 things

    their eminent death
    and the fact that the 2nd amendment is perfect of WE the People , and is from our creator not some stuffed suit calling themselves politicians

    Long Live The Bill of Rights

    • galen says:

      I agree. They don’t know what to do with us. Seems they know they have their hands full with that large and growing group of American Nationals who refuse to be disarmed and refuse to be owned. Knowing this has them teetering of a tightrope as to which way to take us. With all the immigrating invasions and all the trampling of rights they are seeing an opposite result to what they had anticipated. Though greater power and control seemed available to them, they met with a resistance likely not seen since 1775. So what will they do: Bring us up or bring us down? Abandon the infrastructure or bring it to state of the art? Impoverish us or flow in prosperity? 5G, 6G, 7G, or relax surveillance and the false terrorist meme? In other words, Mao’s method or more freedom. Either way, there will be no settling for less than full liberty. Yeah, fight ahead.

      Regarding our Second Article, how many times has Henry said, “If they could have taken them by now they’d have done it already?” So this means we are really holding them at bay. They want to launch more tyranny but “the biggest army on earth” is standing in their way. What will they do?

      Well, at least we know what we’ll do.

        A Military Tribunal should present these TRAITOROUS POLITICIANS with formal charges of TREASON, SEDITION, FELONIOUS PERJURY, and CONSPIRACY TO DEPRIVE US CITIZENS OF THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, amongst other charges. After all, it is they who profess to be learned in the Laws, and proficient in the knowledge of our Bill of Rights and our US Constitution. And it is they who have taken the Oath of Office, in which they swore to uphold and defend the Constitution. I do believe, firmly in my heart, that when they swore the oath to UPHOLD & DEFEND, that they were lying through their teeth, knowing in their hearts that they intended to use their newly acquired power to destroy and decimate the Second Ammendment. Some of them were barely in the door before they were publicly proclaiming that they would confiscate the citizens weapons, and use our own National Guard to do their dirty work for them. They even threatened the Sheriffs and Police Chiefs with loss of pensions and job security if they did not enforce their illegal, unConstitutional decrees, which would be contrary to the Supremacy Clause found in Article Six of the US Constitution. And I firmly believe that they did conspire with certain Billionaire Oligarchs to bring about the disarmament of American Citizens, and cause any of those Law Enforcement Officers to become Traitorous Felons if they were to enforce the illegal screeds that were to be forced down our throats. And because they are so learned in the Constitution, they knew quite well that without the 2A, and an armed citizenry, that NONE of our other rights would be worth ten cents in Chinese money, for very much longer. Perhaps the end game of their plans was to bring about a civil war, with Martial Law declared, and then Foreign Troops called in to subdue and subjugate a decimated population. No, this is not over yet. There are many questions still unanswered, and the TRAITORS are still walking free.

        • Katie says:

          Lord-Pi-314, listen to yesterdays archive regarding the Virginia situation and if you’re in VA get this message out to your fellow Virginian’s.

        • galen says:

          Hi Lord-Pi. I certainly agree with Katie’s and Mary’s excellent input and recommendations. And best to you in the midst of all this. I do have one question… You say,

          “A Military Tribunal should present these TRAITOROUS POLITICIANS with formal charges of TREASON…”

          Where would we find such a tribunal, as they are also infested with corruption and compliance?

          So again, it comes down to us, to each (as Katie said) individual to do what he or she can to go the distance. The often asked question, “What can one man do?,” ever looms before us. I guess we answer that as we move through this uprising. I’ll just add that I believe in us and if those who fought and died for our freedom did it, so can we. They set the bar. Who knows, maybe we’ll even be able to raise it.


  3. Lord-Pi-314 says:

    @Katie….How can we get his message up here in the Tri-State area ? We got our own set of Globalist sellouts here who need to be reminded about what happens to TRAITORS. One of them just withdrew from the Presidential Race, but we now know what his real politics are. This area is totally infested with KommieKrats who have been promised high positions when the Kalergi Plan comes to fruition.

  4. Martist says:

    Those leo’s are already traitorous agents as they have have consistently enforced the unlawful application of ANY and ALL gun “laws” dictated by their masters.

    military and leo have also taken the oath and violate it daily through dereliction and service to the enemy occupying commie govt of BOTH d’s AND r’s.

    They ALL know what they are doing, but leo’s and military receive their 30 pieces of silver while their masters are paid in gold and power from OUR table.

    The usual traitors will continue to violate their oaths so don’t expect any remedy from them. NO kosher/masonic court of the crown is going to help US. That is not even an option, even IF it were offered. It would merely be a temporary distraction at best.

    Any redress offered by a completely corrupted sources will only lead to completely corrupted results.

    None of them serve US. Offer them no quarter. They are not deserving. They are only doing what they are doing so the unimaginable can be implemented against US, our children and our fellow American nationals, so no mercy should be afforded.

    “Citizen-b : a native or naturalized person who owes allegiance to a government and is entitled to protection from it”

    WE “owe” NOTHING, INCLUDING allegiance to a foreign occupying enemy govt that does not recognize OUR RIGHTS AND SUPREME LAW. It is they who are to be loyal to US, as they are to be OF, BY, and FOR US, the PEOPLE.

    • Lord-Pi-314 says:

      I am convinced there are many amongst the LEO’s and the various branches of the military who would wear the White Hats, if they knew that WE THE PEOPLE still had the nerve to stand behind them in sufficient numbers. What is going on in Virginia, with thousands standing up for their rights and pushing back against the tyrants, is a positive indication. This movement is going to spread to other states where Bloomberg money has corrupted the process. Rome was not built in a day, stay tuned !

      • Henry Shivley says:

        Do you mean the private standing blackwater army protecting the corporate aristocracy from the wrath of the people?
        As far as Virginia, all I saw was a bunch of people yelling “We will not comply” as they complied.
        No one you have mentioned in this comment is amongst the free nationals who make up the 75% who do not participate in this corporate bullshit and will be the ones to crush the retards that do.
        Stay tuned.

      • Mark Schumacher in LV says:

        All I saw in Virginia was what you see standing in line at the Dumbo attraction at Disneyland. Paid for professional Bloomberg asshats making a quick $150.00. The real warriors are at home cleaning their ammo loaders.

        Some of these clowns seemed to be doing a Blackwater fashion show.

        Fkg embarrassing…

    • galen says:

      Uh, sorry, but what’s a leo?


  5. galen says:

    Lord Pi (God it’s hard to call you that), now that I’ve learned what a LEO is I’ll just direct you to this site, “Free Thought Project,” for archived there are so very many of the abuses of the last several years that the police state has visited upon the American people. Grand and tortuous atrocities, continual infringements of rights, intrusive no-knock invasions into private homes without warrants, and sadly, even every method of sexual predation on the most vulnerable: children, those they are charged to protect. Please know, I do not align with all that “The Free Thought Project” publishes, but on the police state, they are, in my opinion, very comprehensive. Here’s their link:

    Also, regarding the military and integrity, just like the comments above mention, they get a hefty paycheck and life-long perks. But if you really want to know who they are, just ask the people of Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and many other countries where innocents were bombed, lives destroyed, lands devastated, resources stolen. These are not actions of honor.

    If any OPENLY defect, break all attachment to The Corporation and are willing to be one of the American Nationals committed to freedom, to The Bill of Rights, they may then be able to join the fight. Any thing short of that keeps them classified as soldiers of the enemy, anti-freedom, anti-integrity. It takes overcoming some deep programming as to who is actually a good guy and who is not.

    No offense taken. Those are nice words to hear. Love you, too, and all my Trencher buddies. What a group we are.
