VA Democrat: Let National Guard Force Counties To Honor Gun Control

(Breitbart) – Rep. Donald McEachin (D-VA) suggests Gov. Ralph Northam (D) can activate the National Guard and use it to force Second Amendment sanctuary counties to honor gun control.

There are dozens upon dozens of Second Amendment sanctuary counties and numerous sanctuary cities too. And the number continues to grow. On December 12, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Northam said Second Amendment sanctuary counties will face “consequences” for refusing to enforce gun control.

The Washington Examiner reports that Rep. McEachin suggested using the National Guard to force compliance.

He said, “I’m not the governor, but the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law. That’s his call, because I don’t know how serious these counties are and how severe the violations of law will be. But that’s obviously an option he has.”

<strong>Flashback: 22 Virginia Counties Declare Second Amendment Sanctuary Status</strong>

Nearly two dozen counties in Virginia have declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status ahead of Democrats taking control of the state legislature in 2020.

Gun control Democrats won the night on November 5, 2019, securing enough seats to take control of the Virginia legislature. On November 8, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Gov. Ralph Northam (D) reacted to the victory by planning a war on guns.

This war includes the implementation of numerous gun controls that have been in place in states like California for decades and have proven impotent to hinder, much less prevent, high-profile firearm-based attacks.

On November 23, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Appomattox, Giles, and Dinwiddie Counties each declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status, but they are not the only ones. WSLS reports that the number of Second Amendment Sanctuary counties is now at 22.

The 19 counties in addition to Appomattox, Giles, and Dinwiddie are:
<ul>
<li>Bland</li>
<li>Botetourt</li>
<li>Campbell</li>
<li>Carroll</li>
<li>Charlotte</li>
<li>Dickenson</li>
<li>Henry</li>
<li>King William</li>
<li>Lee</li>
<li>Madison</li>
<li>New Kent</li>
<li>Nottoway</li>
<li>Patrick</li>
<li>Pittsylvania</li>
<li>Powhatan</li>
<li>Southampton</li>
<li>Sussex</li>
<li>Washington</li>
<li>Wythe</li>
</ul>

  1. I live in NC, but you damn well better believe I will join the sanctuary counties to defend their second amendment rights. Democrats you work for us, we do not work for you and the few. We will not tolerate your threats! So come and get them!

    • John, that socio-political retard will likely find that the National Guard will never comply with such an unconstitutional “order,” and then he will have to deal with an insueection, the like of which has not been experienced since 1860!

    • If I’m wrong, please correct me. Didn’t the Democrats once state that the President COULD NOT use the National Guard to defend the borders from immigrants trying to cross the border ILLEGALLY? Didn’t the Democrats state, during the 2016 election, that If Trump became President, he would turn this country into a military state? SO, the VA governor wants go against the Constitution and use the National Guard to control and force law abiding AMERICAN citizens to do his bidding. I believe the VA citizens need to wake up to this abuse of power by the Democratic Party. I pray the President steps in and stops this abuse of power from continuing to happen. I DID NOT vote along the democratic lines in VA and will definitely vote TRUMP in 2020. God help us!

  2. Load up your guns and rifle with ammo for a fight for your freedom of your 2nd Amendment right for battle in a shooting war with the far radical democrats socialist communist democrat taking away your right and their will blood flowing in the street against these radical far leftist crooked socialists communists bastards traitors democrats.

  3. I read a couple articles about how Virginia no longer has paper ballots. Before doing away with paper ballots, it was a red state. Now it’s blue. There should be a major push to bring paper ballots back.

  4. Let the governor activate the national guard. They have taken an oath to uphold the constitution. Of which the second amendment is part of, they will refuse to enforce his band. If not there will be blood in the streets.

  5. The dummy’s have no right to call up US natl guard to take legal guns from citizens. And yes their will be a new revolution To keep America Free From Socialists and Commie democrats

  6. Any attempt to activate the US National Guard to enforce any rule or law contrary to the Constitution, Bill of Righrs, or other federal laws should be FORBIDDEN by the federal government! (And, the Governor should be held accountable for such misuse!)

    • One of the FEW controls that our constitution provided to the FED was to Protect those pesky Bill of RIGHTS. If we allow the Senate and POTUS to turn Blue, only the rights, as they describe them, will be protected.

  7. So let me get this straight…..Democrats believe in Sanctuary cities when the law is something they don’t like, such as regarding illegal aliens; however, when they create a law others don’t like, they believe being a Sanctuary city is unlawful. They are lawless people who follow their emotions rather than laws. STOP voting them into office. Neither the the Democrat nor Republican party are the parties of old. Wake up to what is happening TODAY!

  8. 1) The National guard is made up of that state’s citizenry
    2) Most of not all are not the Dems core constituency (i.e. “Snowflakes”)
    3.) Most if not all of the Guard have firearm training and probably own at least 1 or 2
    guns themselves.
    Do these Liberal idiots think that these men and women will follow an illegal order? Most are probably ex-military and know what the meaning of patriotism and the 2nd Amendment means.

  9. Rep McEachin apparently is neither a student of history nor gun control laws. Gun control laws have never reduced crime because those who use guns to commit crime don’t obey any law including gun control law. They only punish over 100 million responsible gun owners by denying their ability to defend themselves from those criminals who ignore the law. On the other hand, he, like so many Demoncrats, has no regard for the law of the land. If he did, he would never consider violating the Second Amendment which, if I may be so bold as to lecture a supposedly learned legislator, in no uncertain terms denies the government any right to infringe upon the people’s right to KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. But, since when do legislators care about the Constitution?

  10. There is NO SUCH THING as a “National Guard” that does NOT support and defend the Constitution. That statement doesn’t allow a politician to ignore parts of the Constitution that they don’t like. ANY, and I mean any government worker, which includes police, fire, agents, and all Staff employees are not following the constitution, they are criminals.
    When a Governor, Mayor or any other officer of a Court or Government orders an employee to perform or act on something that violates the Constitution, which includes the 2nd Amendment, they are in violation of the law. This violation is not only a Civil Law violation it’s a Civil Rights violation. The person causing the violation is “using the color of their authority” to commit a crime. All police that enter a home, use fire arms to take property from a legal citizen will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. Recently some police officers performed a ‘no knock” raid on a private citizen and “murdered the occupants”. They (the officers) were arrested for murder, but I cannot believe that the people that ordered the raid are not brought up on similar charges.
    If the Government doesn’t take action against these Public leaders that are using Public Police Agents, such as FBI, State Police, or even National Guard, there truly is a possibility of Civil War. What these deranged people in Leadership position are failing to understand is that we legal citizens have a right to take action on our own by laws similar to the abused “whistle blower” laws (which on its own is unconstitutional), and there are groups standing ready to act.

  11. If the individual states don’t have to follow the laws of the federal government why should each individual County have to obey the laws and regulations of the states

  12. For some historical perspective, remember the Battle of Athens, Tennessee, or the McMinn County War, that took place 1 and 2 August 1946, between returning G.I.’s and the deputies of a corrupt Sheriff and an equally corrupt Tennessee State Senator. Those guys wanted their ally the Governor of Tennessee to call out Tennessee’s National Guard. Well, the Guard never moved. Somebody told either the Governor or the Adjutant General not to do something that crazy, if they didn’t want a mutiny within the Guard.

    Virginia’s Adjutant General has already sent an all-hands bulletin saying, “Let’s wait and see what happens in the General Assembly, and if you have any questions, have your officers pass them up to me.” Make of that what you will.

  13. Does this Rep. have any idea what could/would happen?
    Does he realize just how many AMERICANS would Drive to Va. to defend and protect the good citizens from this illegal action if he wants Open Warfare on these good people and start another Civil War WE will be ready

  14. It is the MORAL DUTY OF EVERY NATIONAL GUARDSMAN, POLICE OFFICER and AMERICAN CITIZEN TO decide for HIMSELF what he will fight for. The Constitutional right to bear arms under the Second Amendment, Or he will decide to fight for a tyrannical government that has set out to destroy America through the legal system, which is no longer a legal system, but a Democrat/Liberal/ Progressive/Socialist system of governing (CONTROLLING) THE PEOPLE by force when the refuse to bow to the ALL MIGHTY tyrannical oligarchy!

  15. He was sent to Washington to work for the people he represents and take care of the important business of country. Suggesting that Gov. Northam send the National Guard to confiscate law abiding citizens guns shows just how ignorant he is of the Constitution. Unfortunately I have been cast into his district due to gerrymandering. It’s time for him to be voted out and sent home.

  16. I am also in his district, he has been MIA since being elected. What really amazes me is there has been no mention of cracking down on the criminals only us law abiding citizens . There have been two shootings on my street this year. We need to find some one to primary this hack.

  17. Let’s get this straight. The 2nd amendment is in place to protect ourselves from government overreach. The Governor of a state is threatening to bring out the national guard to take away our guns. This is the whole reason behind the 2nd amendment. Do they really want a door to door search and battle to find our guns. Did I inadvertently move to a third world country?

  18. This gentleman needs to look at Sanctuary Cities, none of which the Federal government has sent in the Guard to protect American citizens from illegal aliens. Yet he wants Virginia to violate the rights of American citizens, rights given to them by the founders of our Republic. He can’t possibly think there is a Democratic politician, at any level, who has half the brains of our founding Fathers…can he? Was he raised under Stalin, Moussilini, Idi Amin? I don’t go into Philly anymore, the City I was born and grew up in, because of Kinney the Mayor, and the Soros purchase of a D A. Now I will add VA as a place to avoid if demagogues like him are ever listened to. George must be spinning in his grave because of such ignorance.

  19. I believe the British tried this a very long time ago…..and they got shot for their trouble…..good luck with the gun confiscation, McEachin, both to you and your ignorant governor Northam……there are PLENTY of citizens out here who will see you in Hell before that happens!!!
