Speaking of the VA: Move to strip him of his protection detail


A lot of the governors power is deferred to the General Assembly at that point and Ill be getting with my collegues to circumvent everything this governor has done on this point, he said. I have a budget amendment that Im looking at to take away his executive protection unit. If hes so afraid of guns, then Im not going to surround him with armed state policemen.

This comes after the AG made a move to eliminate reciprocity with 25 other states.

    No, it came subsequent to the issuance of an “Emergency Executive Order” by Governor McAuliffe (McAwful) to ban the carry of weapons in those state building housing executive agencies. The AG’s actions are an entirely separate instance of treachery.

    See here for comments regarding the efficacy and/or necessity of such an order:

    Get rid of the permit process altogether. This has gone too far already. You don’t need a permit to exercise any other constitutionally enumerated right. This whole thing is a sham. We, in our extreme tolerance, let them have their way; we went along with their idiotic permit requirements, and now they just want more and more control. We can’t appease them. We’ve only encouraged them (there’s a big difference), and it must stop. It’s our fault for going along with the stupidity from the beginning.

    It’s time we apologize for giving the Progressives the idea that they could run roughshod over the constitution. They can’t, and we should have made that clear a long time ago, taken away their power and told them to stand in a corner with the other dunces. Instead we tried to play nice, and look where it’s gotten us all. This is going to end in tears anyway, and it’s all our fault.

    What the VA Governor, via the AG, did was more insidious than just eliminating reciprocity. He created a requirement for reciprocity such that any other state has to have a concealed permit as rigorous to obtain and as limiting as Virginia’s. My state of Texas, for example, still has reciprocity in Virginia because requirements to get a permit here are rigorous enough.

    What this is intended to do is to survive court challenges, because it is not an outright ban on reciprocity, and simultaneously make it harder to get concealed carry permits in other states than Virginia – in order to obtain reciprocity, they must be more restrictive than they are now, and Dem legislatures will leap all over that excuse to tighten up permitting.

    Well played, anti-rights bigots, well played. Very bureaucratic of you.

    The alternative to concealed carry permits, is, of course, not more restrictive permitting but Constitutional Carry. If a state has that, like Vermont or Arizona, I’d think a court would demand reciprocity within Virginia under some process to avoid infringing the rights of entire states full of people. So AZ & VT, get your lawsuits on with VA.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
