    Default One day after the big gun rally, House Democrats wipe out GOP firearm bills (VA)

    They....don't ....care!!!!


    “Thank you very much. It’s an honor to be the first to go down for the cause,” said Del. Chris Head, R-Botetourt, after he saw two of his bills — which would have created legal protections for hunters who unknowingly cross county lines — get rejected in less than 10 minutes.

    In addition to the tensions stoked by Monday’s rally, Tuesday’s hearing came amid fraught relations between the House’s new Democratic leaders and the Republican minority. Last week, House Minority Leader Todd Gilbert, R-Shenandoah, took to the floor to accuse Democrats of sluggishness and incompetence, saying the body had been too slow to begin taking up legislation. Democrats bristled at the suggestion, saying they were doing all they could to manage the leadership transition and get the business of the House moving.

    Del. Glenn Davis, R-Virginia Beach, who spoke up for many of the gun bills killed by the subcommittee mostly along party lines, complained at one point that his Democratic colleagues weren’t allowing enough time for discussion on individual bills.

    “I think we just heard on the floor the other day that Democrats were slow to get the work done,” said Del. Jeff Bourne, D-Richmond, the subcommittee chairman.

    Democrats control Virginia at this point - regardless of how amazing the turnout was Monday and how peacefully it went, they're still going to push their gun-grabbing agenda.

    In that case they should be removed from office with prejudice

    That should be the major lesson from the last election that enabled this situation. 2020 needs to HURT THEM.

    How do they get away with this? It's an actual written right that LIMITS government from doing this----have we drifted that far off course? These actions are treasonous and put lives in danger-----

    This is a great example of how the democrats "reach across the aisle" to come up with "bi-partisan" solutions.
    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.

    Looks like being peaceful didn't work.

    Being peaceful NEVER works. It simply stokes the fires that burn our competence.
