(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:
