NRA: Virginia Gov. Preparing For Mass Incarcerations of Gun Owners With Increase in “Corrections Budget”

As independent media have been reporting now for more than a month, a showdown is nearing in the state of Virginia between patriots who are set to oppose a raft of new gun control laws that may include confiscations and Democrats who are behaving more like King George ahead of the American Revolution.

Some 114 counties and local jurisdictions have adopted so-called “Second Amendment sanctuary” policies that mimic those of sanctuary cities passed by Democrats around the country that shield illegal immigrants from deportation.

Essentially, officials in gun sanctuary jurisdictions are stating they will refuse to cooperate with state authorities in the enforcement of any new gun laws they believe violate the Second Amendment — like officials in sanctuary cities refuse to allow local police to assist federal immigration agents in the apprehension of illegal aliens.

Democrats in Virginia, newly empowered with election victories in November that gave them control of the state legislature for the first time in years, plan to work with Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam to pass new gun laws they claim are necessary to ‘end the violence.’

Among measures that have been considered or proposed: A “red flag” law empowering judges to authorize police to take guns away from people who haven’t yet committed any crime but are only thought to be dangerous; an ‘assault weapons’ ban; a gun buyback program associated with the assault weapons ban; forced confiscation of said assault weapons that are not sold or turned in; bans of large-capacity magazines; and ‘universal’ background checks.

Police and sheriffs throughout the state who are supportive of gun sanctuaries have said they don’t have a problem enforcing existing gun laws already on the books. But they say few, if any, of the proposed measures will actually curb crime. (Related: Anti-gun Dems in Virginia have awakened a ‘sleeping giant’ as scores of counties declare themselves ‘Second Amendment sanctuaries’.)

Nevertheless, not only are Democrat officials in Virginia serious about ensuring that any new gun laws will be enforced, according to the National Rifle Association Northam has pushed up the state’s prison budget in anticipation of having to mass incarcerate violators of those new laws, WorldNetDaily reported.

This is pretty sinister stuff

The site notes: 

The lobbying arm of the National Rifle Association is warning that Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is setting the stage to jail gun owners.

A statement from the Institute for Legislative Action, the NRA’s lobbying arm, warned bluntly that Northam “increases corrections budget in anticipation of jailing gun owners.”

“As if Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s wholesale attack on law-abiding gun owners wasn’t enough, the disgraced public official and his Michael Bloomberg-bought allies in the general assembly now want the state’s hard-working taxpayers to foot the bill for their unconstitutional schemes. The budget bill (HB30) includes an appropriation of a quarter-million dollars to carry out a host of gun control measures that Northam and his anti-gun allies hope to enact,” the ILA explained.

“The $250,000 is appropriated to the Corrections Special Reserve Fund in order to provide for the ‘increase in the operating cost of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment’ of Northam’s gun control measures,” the lobbying organization noted further, according to The Daily Caller. 

“Among the enumerated laws that this allocation is meant to fund is a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, the criminalization of private firearms transfers, and gun confiscation orders issued without due process.”

Such actions would be patently unconstitutional, but that doesn’t appear to have phased Northam or Democrats, at least yet.

This stealth increase in the corrections budget, however, is a serious thing — and a devious thing. It means that Democrats are planning to arrogantly enforce their will regardless of constitutionality and regardless of the fact that some jurisdictions in the state refuse to cooperate with federal immigration laws.

    I PRAY that this all goes away, but I’m afraid it isn’t. I hope that the Demorats back down, because if they don’t they might get something they don’t want. (tall trees short ropes) They are Treasonous, and one of the punishment for Treason is Death. GOD FORBID.
    I’ve been setting back read this site, and not commenting. One reason is because the last 4 or 5 times I never got my commits never got posted.
    Mac if I did something wrong let me know. If I did I didn’t know and I’m sorry for the mess up. So I hope this gets posted.
    Going back to the Virginian problem. If for one second they think the Patriot’s in other states are going to help the Patriots in VA. they are totally out of their heads. Not for one second do I believe that the VA. National Guard is going to go up against local Law Enforcement, because they will be backed by the Good patriots in the area. If they move against any of these counties they should close of the food and fuel supplies going into the large city areas that backing this unconstitutional acts. Again I pray that nothing happens, and this all just goes away, but I’m afraid this might be the area where the 2 Civil War starts. I also Pray that the Federal Government lead by Pres. Trump tells the Demorat Gov to stand down.
    I read somewhere that Militias across the USA are gearing up. God bless them and watch over them if they have to do the unthinkable.
    For me some of you know where I stand. I’m 66 years old I’ve lived a long timer, Saying this I’m ready to stand and fight agains all these Demorats Libtards when the day comes. I’m ready my gear is packed and the tools are ready.
    GOD BLESS THE USA, AND THE GREAT PATRIOTS OF VA. Stand tall! We are standing right behind you ready to act if need be.

      Hey Sarge,
      Have you found a place to hang your hat yet? Have you considered Lunenburg County, Va ? I know our governor is nuts but the country folk around here are great. EVERYBODY hunts and such, no problem. Low taxes, nice rolling hills plenty of streams and ponds. Land is relatively cheap, employment is okay but on the lower end of the scale.

      You did nothing wrong. I have enjoyed your comments and insights.

      You dared to speak honestly, openly, freely, this is Verbotten by the tech monopoly TYRANT control freaks. These tech tyrants are communist NWO Globalist boot lickers.

      These web sites are also Fed Gov honey pots. The same TREASONOUS US gov people that are going after our elected President, will be coming for you and I. They are Anti American traitors.

      Speak LOUD and Proud of everything Traditional American, God-Freedom-Liberty-Justice-Free Speech, Love of God, Love of Family, Love of the traditional America Freedoms and Liberty. Don’t let the “thems’ take these from you without a fight to your death. “Live Free or Die.” Have Resolve. Fear Not. They fear the People. That is why they want to shut you up.

      Be Red List Proud. Do not be hauled away quitely by thugs with guns, with Anti American communist Masters..
      Never give up your Freedom-Free Speech-God Given Rights. No matter the cost.

      China also scrubs many web site comments. The net has been compromised.

      We are in real trouble here. China-Russia-Iran naval drills.

    Northam better be careful, the gun owners might jail his ass.

    (Liberaltarians “wuv” their woke posterchildren, so immediately ruined the story with feminism.)

    People, deeply concerned with independence, should shy away from too-big-to-fail manufacturers and shops, which obviously cater to redcoats.

  5. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    They ought to spend that money on body bags for whatever gun grabbers they’ll use. If they want to commit suicide that’s their own affair. Their streets will be running red with democrat blood. It’s not too late for them to back off.

  6. Mark C says:

    In the last sentence of the article, you wrote “some jurisdictions in the state refuse to cooperate with federal immigration laws.” Presumably you mean state gun laws and not federal immigration laws???

  7. Old Codger says:

    “behaving more like King George ahead of the American Revolution.”

    Ever since King Charles 2nd came to the throne in the ‘Restoration’, the people running England have been the British Parliament, NOT the Monarch! The PM at the time was Lord North!
    All KG3 was allowed to do was sign the Bills into law as is the case ever since, to QE2 today.

    That is the very reason Cromwell fought the English Civil War!

  8. Bob1 says:

    $250K for incarcerations of gun owners? This is a laughable amount for increased incarcerations of gun owners. Are they intending to incarcerate less than 10 gun owners?

    “Police and sheriffs throughout the state who are supportive of gun sanctuaries have said they don’t have a problem enforcing existing gun laws already on the books.”

    These jack-booted thugs still don’t get it. They work for the post 9/11 Police State for blood money. They and the hirelings at the NRA are NOT friends of Liberty.

  11. Confederate Bill says:

    These new newly elected Democrat politicians, funded by liberal out of state billionaires, are set to betray Virginians after assuming office next week, are ideological fanatics. Today it is perfectly legal and Constitutional for millions of Virginians to own firearms and enjoy their 2nd Amendment freedoms. But the newly elected have decided the day after they take office it will no longer be so.
    Most Democrats despise individual freedoms and liberties (unless you want to kill your baby – even those born alive, want to marry someone of the same biological sex, want to use a public restroom different from your biological sex, or want to indoctrinate children to be transgenders). They want to place people in prison who will not surrender any Constitutional rights that empower them against the state.
    The good news is millions of Virginians are not going to roll over, there WILL BE mass non-compliance of any new un-Constitutional laws enacted. There will also be more good coming out of this latest attempt to deprive citizens of their rights, it will further shatter the relationship of many citizens to gov’t.

  12. cranerigger says:

    SUPREME COURT, wake up. Primarily I’m addressing Justice Sotomayor and Justice Ginsberg. Patriots within our country will not willingly give up their rights “to keep & bear arms” as affirmed in the Bill of Rights. If outside-the-law legislation requires police officers to steal firearms from those Patriots, bad things will happen. It could possibly lead to a civil war. Do NOT allow the Demonrat Governor Northam to start a Civil War.

  13. jakartaman says:

    Virginia will be a testing ground for the country

    This is where the oath keepers com into play

    This Governor CANNOT stand or the country is in BIG BIG trouble

  14. Use the supreme LAW of this land plus the constitutionally REQUIRED Oath against them. Basically, in my opinion, this IS treason. Let me provide proof.

    Virginia Constitution, Article I. Bill of Rights, Section 13. Militia; standing armies; military subordinate to civil power: That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state, THEREFORE, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power. [caps mine]

    We are a constitutional republic with the US Constitution being the supreme LAW of this land, plus supremely binding contract for all who serve within government – state and federal. This means that there cannot be a change in the US Constitution except by amending it, and that what it requires, says, protects cannot be negated.

    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.”

    This is not giving a right, it is requiring those who serve within our governments to PROTECT that natural right of the people.

    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.” [caps are mine]

    Back when courts actually KNEW the US Constitution and did not study “precedent” (peoples opinions).

    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.”

    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.”

    Treason – Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
    The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

    Three things are necessary for an offense to constitute treason:
    — an Obligation of Allegiance to the legal order,
    — Intent to go against the legal order, and then
    — Action to Violate that Obligation.

    28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    Black’s Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, defines Color of Law: “The appearance or semblance, without the substance, of legal right. Misuse of power, possessed by virtue of state law and made possible only because wrongdoer is clothed with authority of state, is action taken under “color of law.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, page 241.

  15. This is the watershed moment…If they get Virginia, then the traitors will seize the opportunity to go after every state one by one. Calif and Illinois are next. I will tell you this, if the jack-booted thugs ever come to my door for my weapons, I will use deadly force. Because I know that if I relinquish my guns, then the next time they come to my door it won’t be for my guns.
    Of course by that time, it will have already been too late because they weren’t stopped early in the game. I now think that every democrat in office should be indicted for sedition.!!!!

  16. Rock Roller says:

    The Demonrats want our guns because they plan on doing things to us we’d shoot them for.

  17. Anonymous says:

    HaHaHa…Big Talk. Most of you on here will hide under the bed and attach a little sign that says “Safe Space”.

    How far back are you going to move that line THIS time?

  18. James Woroble Jr says:

    This is a baited trap for Demon~(,_,)^>s.

    The very principles, legal foundations and actions implemented against 2nd Amendment sanctuaries by the Neo-Communists will be used to end alien invader sanctuaries by the American patriot faction – jamming a cork in the mouth of any expressed resistance.

    Laws governing recall in Virginia

    Recall of elected official(s) in Virginia is made available through Virginia statutes.
    Unlike other states that hold recall elections however, when citizens have petitioned for a recall, it is then sent to the state Circuit Courts for trial.

    Code of Virginia

    Virginia is one of two states that provide for recall only though state statutes and not constitutional law, the other being Montana.[1]
    Who may be recalled?

    Code § 24.2-233 states that “Upon petition, a circuit court may remove from office any elected officer or officer who has been appointed to fill an elective office, residing within the jurisdiction of the court.”[2]

    The Virginia Law Review in 1975, the year the recall statutes were enacted, noted of the law, “A single Code article now governs the removal of state and local officers, both elected and appointed, except those whose removal from office is specifically provided for in the Virginia Constitution.” The statute can be interpreted to generally mean all locally elected officials can be recalled. However, given ambiguity in the statute language, particularly in regard to court jurisdiction, it is unclear as to what extent the recall process would apply to state officers. There is no precedent of a Virginia state legislator or governor having faced recall, nor has the process been litigated in the courts. Removal of the Virginia Governor by impeachment is provided for in the Virginia Constitution.[1][3]
    Can you recall a federal official?
    The U.S. Constitution does not provide for recall of any federally elected official. Although some state constitutions have stated that their citizens have the right to recall members of the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Supreme Court has not ruled on whether this is constitutional at the federal level.
    Read Ballotpedia’s explanation »
    Recall reasons

    Code § 24.2-233 states acceptable reasons for recall when it has “material adverse effect upon the conduct of the office” include:[2]

    Neglect of duty
    Misuse of office
    Incompetence in the performance

    Other acceptable reasons include:

    Conviction of a misdemeanor relating to drugs
    Conviction of a misdemeanor involving a “hate crime”

    Petition requirements

    The petition for recall must be signed by at least 10% of the number of people who voted in the last election for the office being recalled.[2] The petition must also detail the reasons for removal.[4]

    Further applicable petition requirement for local recall efforts may be found in § 24.2-684.1. Potential petitioner should check with their local authorities for the most current and applicable regulations.
    Trial process

    After the petition has been submitted:

    The officer subject to recall will receive notice.[4]
    The officer’s position may be suspended.[5]
    The attorney for the Commonwealth will represent the state.[6]
    The official subject to a recall trial has the right to demand a trial by jury.[6]
    The results of the trial may be appealed to the Supreme Court of Virginia.[6]

    Filling vacancies

    If an official is recalled, the general procedure is to follow the laws set out for filling vacancies under Virginia Code Title 24.2 – Elections. For instance, when Mayor James Holley of Portsmouth was recalled for the second time in 2010, it was the city council who was charge with appointing a temporary successor; if they had failed to do it the process would have been deferred to the courts.[7][8]

    Unfortunately after reading many comments, I believe we are in a pressure pot ready to bust @ the seems. In 46 years of living, I have never seen a country become so divided & ready to fight over the slightest disagreement. Freedom is something America was built on. Hard work, proud work, and many different skill sets. Now, it feels as if America is a corporation not a country. Live free or die……..get ready for the unthinkable. 🙏🏼🙏🏼 For the best!!!!!

    • Bill says:

      Many Dems. politicians in the state of Virginia are bought and paid for by northern and foreign billionaires and other leftist activists desiring to introduce the same policies to the South that have brought political, social, Constitutional, and financial wreckage in many northern states.
      Not only do they want to totally disarm ALL citizens, but a few Dems. are introducing bills that would override all local zoning laws across the state that strictly permit only for single-family homes in suburban neighborhoods. The claim is this is racist, and say it must be rectified by constructing high-density low-income housing inside both established and new suburban neighborhoods, even if changes the character of the neighborhood and destroys property values. Their bills will not succeed and most of these leftist ideologues will be voted out next election.
      That the country is politically and socially coming apart at the seams is a very good thing. The issues, sentiments, turmoil, and disagreements raging throughout the country must continue and magnify to the point where social and political conditions boil over and become intolerable. Its true TPTB and officialdom love a fractured society so that the citizens of the country cannot unite against them, they already despise us, but now they must learn to fear us.
      When much of the American colonies desired their liberties, and no longer wanted merely be a possession of England, they rebelled. However, only about one-third of the people actively supported the revolution (actually, it too was a civil war), one-third were passive or indifferent, and about one-third were remainers who wanted to stay royalist. We all know what happened though. This shows one doesn’t need an absolute majority to bring about desired change, it is only matter of organizing with a united purpose. One-third of the citizens in the US today are more than enough to bring about desired change, even if it means wrenching states away to form a new nation. Though successful, it was extremely hard for the one-third to finally effect change back then because citizens and their families were self-sufficient, but today almost everyone is co-dependent on a large variety of institutions, refined resources, and on everyone else, therefore most citizens today are very vulnerable. The present general relationship of citizens and officialdom must be shattered.
      TPTB and their leftist minions label anyone who who does not comply with their statist / collectivist / fascist ideology as hate-filled bigots, racists, sexists, and a vast variety of phobes. That it’s not true is of no consequence. Their actions, motives, and goals show truth and honesty are in reality not virtues and do not serve them, they are only hinderances. Only power, unquestioned conformity, and mass uniformity is important. The current Demo. politicians in Virginia prove that.

      The most dangerous are those that have nothing to loose.
      Without an honest Free Press-Free Speech-Freedom to Travel-Right to disagree and question-Right to worship as one sees fit-Right to keep and bear arms to defend your family, church, neighborhood. Without these basic God Given Rights. There is nothing but slavery and TYRANNY.

      If you allow these God Given Rights to be taken away by the tech FarceBook leftie mob and commie Politicians, YOU HAVE NOTHING.

      Those that are running things are taking away ALL of the above Rights, or they are attempting to take away all of the above God given Rights in a relentless manner.

      I live in a so called “rights” friendly state. We are being INVADED by leftie commie Californians and those from outside the US who only have criminal activities in mind. Drug cartels control ALL of South Texas from San Antonio down. Politicians, Police, Judges, Jails, ALL are on drug cartel payroll. Bought and Paid for by murdering drug gangs. Murderers of innocent women and children.
      Where is your outrage at allowing Americans to be killed by thugs?

      Why aren’t US Spec Ops hunting down drug cartels and slaughtering them? This how to deal with murderous rabid beasts.

      The Only war America should be involved in is Securing the US Southern Border and stopping China from taking over the ENTIRE African continent. For 20 plus years China has been taking over Africa. Why is this Allowed?

  24. Kevin2 says:

    Such laws even more draconian were enacted largely W/O event in more urbanized states. Virginia has a cluster of urban around Washington and some major cities that socially conflict with their rural brethren. On a greater scale we see New York, specifically the city metropolis and California represented with Los Angeles and San Fransisco desiring to implement rule across the land. An enforced Bill Of Rights with 14th Amendment reach was meant to stop tyranny of the masses. I suspect significant non compliance and in functionality limited enforcement in Virginia. From Income Tax through Prohibition and Marijuana bans Americans are overwhelmingly compliant with Malum In Se are likewise ambivalent regarding Malum Prohibitum. A great number will not obey and as a percentage a very small number will be caught. The hype from both for and against is far greater than the reality.
