Obama’s Gun Control In Virginia
Obama has taken the first formal step to leaving Americans defenseless and he has started in Virginia.
Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced recently that Virginia will no longer recognize concealed carry handgun permits from 25 states that have reciprocity agreements with the commonwealth.
Under the new policy, Virginians with a history of stalking, drug dealing or inpatient mental-health treatment cannot obtain a permit in a state with comparatively lax laws and carry a handgun legally at home.
In what can only be called a “red” Herring, the Attorney General would have people believe that severing the out-of-state agreements can prevent people who may be dangerous or irresponsible from carrying a concealed handgun.
In truth what he is doing is preparing the way for even tighter gun controls, followed later by confiscation of weapons already permitted.
By using the Attorney General in Virginia to introduce these changes, Obama is acting in exactly the same way as he does in the White House.
There he uses Executive Orders to circumvent scrutiny by the Congress and Senate. In Virginia he is using the Attorney General route so he can introduce gun control by first tightening restrictions, and do it all without going through GOP-controlled legislatures.
It is outrageous, unacceptable and undemocratic, but it is just a taste of what life will be like for gun owners under Hillary Clinton.
The only positive in the whole sorry mess is that by starting to do it now, Obama has alerted voters as to what is in store with a future liberal/socialist Democrat administration.
Voters should take notice.
A vote for the Democrats is a vote to destroy democracy and the 2nd Amendment, and usher in further decline for a defenseless America.
A vote for Donald Trump, on the other hand, is not only a vote for the 2nd Amendment, but also a vote to make America great again.
For those with the best interests of their country at heart, it should be an easy choice to make.
