Gun Grabs: Virginia, Idaho Ground Zero in Fight Against Left

By Jodi Giddings – Victory Girls – 12/24/2019

Its motto is “Sic Semper Tyrannus.” And it looks like many of the citizens of Virginia are taking that motto to heart.

In case Christmas, and continuous impeachment hysteria, has had you busy and unaware as to what’s happening in Virginia, here it is, the Democrats’ gun-control legislative agenda for 2020:

SB 16 [prohibits] the sale, transfer and possession of so-called ‘assault firearms’ and certain standard magazines. Violating the measure would be a state felony. That means to avoid running afoul of the law, law abiding citizens who currently own these firearms would need to get rid of them or surrender them to the government.’

For those who refuse?

A ‘grandfather clause’ that includes a ‘requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period.’”

You know, for ease of confiscation.

Democrats also want to impose red flag laws that would allow courts to remove firearms from those who have been ‘flagged’ by someone around them as a danger to themselves or others.”

Additionally, Democrats are considering SB 64, which would criminalize ‘tactical training’ and discourage ‘paramilitary activity’ by strengthening penalties for individuals who engage in ‘training with, practicing with, or being instructed in the use of any firearm…for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder.’

No concerns about constitutional rights violations there, right? In other words: the Democrats want us all prostrate and dependent.

Oh, and then there’s this:

…HB 67…would apply to any law enforcement official…[and] those who ‘willfully refuses [sic] to perform the duties of his employment,’ will be terminated and ineligible for future law enforcement employment for another year.’”

Meanwhile…

Democratic Congressman Donald McEachin…suggested Gov. Northam call out the Virginia National Guard to enforce the ill-received gun restrictions.”

With what, you might ask? Well, actual assault weapons, of course, brandished against their own citizens. The irony is rich.

Now, the gun-control cudgel currently being wielded by the authoritarian Virginia Democrats following their newfound power is not occurring in a vacuum.

It’s happening right here in my home state of allegedly-red Idaho and it’s blue neighbor, Washington.

At the root of the uproar is also guns and government overreach, one event to which the current onslaught of leftist vitriol refers having occurred over four years ago under Barack Obama, and the tactics being employed are eerily familiar to those being used against our president:

[A] four-month investigation found that [Rep. Matt, WA] ‘Shea, as a leader in the Patriot movement, planned, engaged in and promoted” three armed conflicts between 2014 and 2016: in Bunkerville, Nevada; in Priest River, Idaho; and at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon…’”

Some background on the Idaho reference:

Due to health issues and safety concerns, the Veterans Administration decided to remove firearms from an elderly veteran in Priest River in August 2015. Shea posted an ‘urgent action alert’ on social media for Patriot Movement followers to travel to Priest River with him to prevent the VA from removing the firearms.

In his post, Shea stated, ‘We cannot let this stand … Rep. Heather Scott has asked us all for help since this is in her district and I will stand by her.’”

You can read Rep. Shea’s response to this, ahem, dossier here:

Gun Grabs: Virginia, Idaho Ground Zero in Fight Against Left

So let’s be crystal clear: Antifa is a-ok with many leftists, but standing between federal government overreach and a citizen who’s done nothing wrong now gets one labeled a “domestic terrorist,” the same language often used by tyrants in countries like Iran whenever its brutally oppressed citizenry dares fight back.

And I’ll remind you: the Idaho event occurred in 2015. And another in 2014. With the alleged internet chats from 2017. And neither of these legislators has ever been charged with any crime. But four years later, that didn’t stop the chief clerk of the House from hiring a Seattle-based, retired FBI agent who’s accused Rep. Shea of “domestic terrorism” anyway, with leftists here in my hometown parroting that language against Rep. Scott. Might I remind you the death of due process was on full display during the Kavanaugh hearings, and more recently with the release of the FISA report that showed the FBI repeatedly lying to the court in order to spy on Trump affiliate, Carter Page. There was plenty of government malfeasance with regard to the Bunkerville conflict as well. But you won’t hear the Democrats screeching about prosecutorial misconduct in either case, because those ends justify those means.

By the way, what’s omitted with regard to the Priest River event—the “armed standoff” language is laughable; literally everyone I know here in Idaho is armed—is the fact that our local sheriff also stood in defense of the veteran over a federal agency threatening to confiscate his personal property without regard to his constitutional protections. And it’s his sworn duty to do so, and thus liberty-lovers in Idaho are thankful for Reps. Shea and Scott, our sheriff, and our county commissioners, all of whom walk their talk.

So you see, all of this is not transpiring coincidentally. It’s planned, and of course likely funded, by billionaires whose names rhyme with “Whore-ose” and “Oom-berg” among others.

And there’s a reason for it: overwhelm the system, Cloward and Piven style, in order to force the left’s will upon us via rapid-fire ballot initiatives—a circumvention of our legislators that will devastate Idaho’s economy—targeting of the most conservative and second amendment-supporting legislators who physically stand for liberty, dehumanizing and bullying anyone who dares think differently, and of course, disarming us so that we cannot resist.

Except…

People are fed up and fighting back.

Exhibit A:

Boom. And a mic drop, girlfriend.

Further:

  • * A National Guardsman reportedly penned an anonymous letter in response to the despotic Virginia Dems. It’s safe to say he/she won’t be engaging in gun confiscation.
  • * Militias are forming across Virginia, and more than 100 cities, counties and municipalities have adopted Second Amendment or constitutional sanctuary resolutions in response to the constitution-shredding gun laws the Dems are planning (hey, your rules, Dems).
  • * A group of citizens here in Idaho (raises hand) are coordinating to push back against the abusive tax burdens being hefted on us from all sides, while many are poised to stand with Reps. Shea and Scott in support of our right to self defense.

And that’s just for starters. Should the Governor Northams of the land keep pushing, the Pandora’s Box they’ll open will be one full of patriots, from all walks of life, and from all across the nation.

There are some—and by “some” I mean thoughtful, pragmatic people who rarely make controversial remarks—who say the left is trying to start a second Civil War. And I cannot disagree. And should it come, Virginia—ironically, given its battle for independence from Britain—will be ground zero.

The only question is: Do they think a second civil war will bring a different outcome than the first one?

While I hope it doesn’t come to that, next year’s election will bring one of two things: a Trump re-election and a further out-of-control left who’ll exhibit even more violent and incoherent behavior, or a Democrat win, which could very well, and very likely, spread like wildfire throughout the nation what’s transpiring right now in Virginia, Idaho, and Washington.

It’s a pivotal time for America, and it’s time those of us still on the fence about what the Democrat Party (and their appeasers in the GOP) really is jumped the hell off, because they’re showing us, right now, in technicolor, what they’ll do should we make the grave mistake of handing them back power.

So your New Year’s resolution should be this: Stand for liberty. Stand for due process. And stand for the future generations who deserve to live in a free America. Because the survival of our constitution and our republic demands nothing less.

And to Governor BlackFace von BabyKiller and the rest of the Democrats who’ve stirred up a hornet’s nest in Virginia, and to their comrades here in Idaho: We will not comply.

  1. General Smedley Butler: “There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights.” (if you recognize who he is then you know that he does know of which he speaks.)

    Constitution of the United States of America, 2nd Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    INFRINGE, 1. To break, as contracts; to violate, either positively by contravention, or negatively by non-fulfillment or neglect of performance. A prince or a private person infringes an agreement or covenant by neglecting to perform its conditions, as well as by doing what is stipulated not to be done.
    2. To break; to violate; to transgress; to neglect to fulfill or obey; as, to infringe a law.
    3. To destroy or hinder; as, to infringe efficacy. [Little used.] http://webstersdictionary1828.com/Dictionary/Infringe

    REG’ULATED, participle passive Adjusted by rule, method or forms; put in good order; subjected to rules or restrictions. http://webstersdictionary1828.com/Dictionary/Regulated

    Constitution, The established form of government in a state, kingdom or country; a system of fundamental rules, principles and ordinances for the government of a state or nation. In free states, the constitution is paramount to the statutes or laws enacted by the legislature, limiting and controlling its power; and in the United States, the legislature is created, and its powers designated, by the constitution. http://webstersdictionary1828.com/Dictionary/Constitution

    So who is FORBIDDEN to be armed by our framers, etc? Consider these words from one who would know, “THE UNLIMITED POWER OF THE SWORD IS NOT IN THE HANDS OF EITHER THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENTS…”

    Tench Coxe, Delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1787: “Who are the militia? are they not ourselves. Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. THEIR SWORDS, AND EVERY OTHER TERRIBLE IMPLEMENT OF THE SOLDIER, ARE THE BIRTH-RIGHT OF AN AMERICAN… THE UNLIMITED POWER OF THE SWORD IS NOT IN THE HANDS OF EITHER THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENTS BUT, where I trust in God it will ever remain, IN THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE.”

    In this country the US Constitution created our constitutional republic, is the supreme law of this land, requires an Oath from everyone who serves within our governments to support/defend it (Preserve, Protect, and Defend is the requirement for US Presidents),
    http://webstersdictionary1828.com/Dictionary/support (lots of words here, so chose a few)
    To bear; to sustain; to uphold; as in
    – To endure without being overcome;
    – To bear; to endure;
    – To sustain;
    – To maintain; to sustain; to keep from failing; -To sustain without change or dissolution;
    – In general, the maintenance or sustaining of any thing without suffering it to fail, decline or languish;

    PRE’AMBLE, noun [Latin proe, before, and ambulo, to go.]
    1. Something previous; introduction to a discourse or writing.
    2. The introductory part of a statute, which states the reasons and intent of the law.
    PRE’AMBLE, verb transitive To preface; to introduce with previous remarks.

    Preamble to the Bill of Rights: Congress OF THE United States begun and held at the City of New York, on Wednesday the Fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.
    THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.”

    Patrick Henry: “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

    Du Pont v. Du Pont, 85 A 724: “The basic purpose of a written constitution has a two-fold aspect, first securing [not granting] to the people of certain unchangeable rights and remedies, and second, the curtailment of unrestricted governmental activity within certain defined spheres.”

    Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859): “The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the “high powers” delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.’ A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power.”

    Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878): “To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm … is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.”

    Bliss vs. Commonwealth, 12 Ky. (2 Litt.) 90, at 92, and 93, 13 Am. Dec. 251 (1822): “For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing of concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. But it should not be forgotten, that it is not only a part of the right that is secured by the constitution; it is the right entire and complete, as it existed at the adoption of the constitution; and if any portion of that right be impaired, immaterial how small the part may be, and immaterial the order of time at which it be done, it is equally forbidden by the constitution.”

    Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846): ” `The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right.”

    The US Constitution FORBIDS those who serve within our governments from quite a few things, those things that are delegated to our governments are listed within it (and within state constitutions), and assigned to the different branches and to named offices within a branch. Those that serve within our governments have no lawful authority beyond that which is written which is why (my opinion) they work from within our governments to destroy our constitutional republic. That is why one hears almost all of the politicians, media, etc refer to our country as a democracy, not as what it really is, a constitutional republic with the powers of government in writing (unlike England’s Constitution which is unwritten).

  2. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

    John Stuart Mill
