    ‘They’ve Awoken a Giant’: 20+ Virginia Counties Become 2A Sanctuaries Overnight

    Virginia gun owners have gathered by the hundreds at Board of Supervisors meetings in counties across the state to send a message to the newly elected Democratic legislature in Richmond.

    As of this writing, 23 counties and towns have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries since Michael Bloomberg flipped the state legislature from red to blue earlier this month. Second Amendment sanctuaries exist in many states across the country, but no state has seen so many in such a short span of time.


    “It’s sending a message to Richmond saying we don’t want any more gun control out here,” Philip Van Cleave told GunsAmerica.

    Van Cleave is the President of the gun-rights group Virginia Citizens Defense League, which has been fighting for Second Amendment rights in Virginia since 1994, when they helped turned the state from may-issue to shall-issue.

    Van Cleave has been active in the gun rights movement in Virginia for over 20 years, and he says he’s never seen anything like this.

    “Nothing even touches the activity in Virginia right now. A lot of gun owners were sleeping, but now they’ve woke the sleeping giant. All these gun owners that have been sound asleep have suddenly woken up.”

    The numbers don’t lie. Of Virginia’s 133 counties and independent towns, 23 have already declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, and another 53 are considering the measure.

    “There are more coming,” Van Cleave predicted. “That number’s going to jump quite a bit.”

    County Board of Supervisor meetings are literally overflowing with gun owners hoping to send a message to Richmond.

    One thousand people showed up at a Board of Supervisors meeting in Shenandoah County, for example, and 700 people attended a meeting in Washington County. The meetings in Amherst and Amelia counties were standing-room-only with crowds flooding the hallways and the front laws.

    And I guarantee you 2/3 of the people in that picture probably didn't bother to vote in the past election. They are "hoping to send a message to Richmond"? News flash, they DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR MESSAGE! They have been bought, paid for and delivered to the altar of Mike Bloomberg. They are not beholden to the rural residents of Virginia, they were bought for one purpose, to give Gun Control lobby a large and visible win. It's 10 times harder to win back ground that you had, and lost. Good Luck Virginia, your value now is to serve as an example to residents of other states that are being similarly targeted by this RICO lobby.

    And this means what, exactly? Are sheriffs going to physically prevent the state police from enforcing gun laws in their counties?

    Like "nullification" laws, this is a cool but toothless gesture. If the state wants to enforce its laws, there's little anyone can do to stop them.

    Kind of like those sanctuary cities that hide illegal criminals?

    Nothing to worry about. We're always told how the majority of police are pro-2A. They surely wouldn't enforce such laws.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Correct. If the feds had the willpower to go enforce their laws, they could, and there's nothing anyone can do to stop them, even "sanctuary cities."

    Now tell me, do you think the feds want to be splashed across the headlines rolling in hardcore against "sanctuary cities" or marijuana dispensaries across the land?

    They wouldn't view firearms violations the same way.


    I know this is nuance that many here can't comprehend. They falsely believe that the same treatment that "sanctuary cities" receive will be granted to "2A sanctuaries."

    It will be quite the opposite.
