Reporting within that story that a large number of Virginia counties were already 'revolting' against any un-Constitutional gun grabs by declaring their counties as '2nd Amendment Sanctuary's', we also had asked ANP readers within that story to please share their own thoughts and comments on what we're witnessing in America with the 'deep state' and parts of the Democrat party believing themselves to be 'above the law' during their impeachment coup attempt while also pushing to take away Americans means to protect themselves and their families. So we'll be exploring those excellent comments within this new ANP story with one of the top rated comments highlighted for you right here with many more ANP reader comments in the final section of this story.
Motorcyclerider: People with guns make terrible slaves. It isn't complicated.
And with America moving closer and closer to crossing the rubicon into socialism every day and 'socialism' nearly always leading to Communism which brings with it forced obedience to government, famine, mass starvation and eventually, millions of cases of 'death by government' to a country, all Americans need to do is take a look at what's happening right now in Venezuela or Communist China to get a picture of America's possible future under socialism and as the people of Venezuela will tell us, it's not pretty.
And as the website Foundation For Economic Education had reported back in January of 2019 in this story titled "Gun Control Preceded the Tyranny in Venezuela", the shocking nature of Venezuela’s economic collapse has been covered ad nauseam. However, one aspect of the Venezuelan crisis that does not receive much coverage is the country’s gun control regime.
All the way back in June of 2008, the website "Learn About Guns" published a story that should be required reading by Democrats all across America so we'll be republishing a lengthy excerpt of it below. Titled "News Flash: Criminals Ignore Laws (Including Gun Control Laws)", most arguing for 'gun control' and 'gun confiscations' in 2020 have no idea about the total insanity that would be unleashed with only criminals and government having guns while law abiding American citizens are disarmed. From that 2008 story which still rings true today.:
Throughout this site I have pointed out the many problems with gun control. Those problems include the fact that criminals don’t obey laws (including gun control laws), and that failure to obey laws is what makes them criminals. Given the number of people still reaching this site after searching for “reasons to support gun control”, I thought I would further explain why gun control laws won’t prevent crime any better than the laws against murder and other crimes.
Criminals disobey laws
Criminals don’t abide by the laws of our society. Instead, they violate the laws for their own personal gain. It is this very fact that makes them criminals. This should be obvious, but since it is a necessary part of the reasoning I use below, I included it for the sake of completeness.
Gun control is just another law for criminals to disobey
It boggles my mind to see people call for gun control in the wake of a murder. It is especially ridiculous in places like Chicago, which already have an outright ban on handguns, but still have at least 1 handgun shooting every day, and sometimes over 30 in a weekend. Gun control laws are just like any other law, in that people can choose to obey or disobey. A criminal who disobeys the law against murder, which is arguably the most strictly enforced law in our society, is not going to think twice about ignoring a gun ban law.
Some people will then argue that by banning guns all together, we will somehow keep the guns out of the hands of criminals, preventing them from having the guns at all. This reasoning is faulty. Criminals manage to smuggle in millions upon millions of pounds of illegal drugs, and thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants each year. They can (and do) smuggle in guns right along with the drugs and illegal immigrants. There are also hundreds of millions of guns in the country already. Finally, criminals can and do make guns, since it is not that difficult to make a gun that will work for their purposes. These home made guns (called “zip guns”) may not equal the quality of a fine Springfield 1911 or XD, but they will still kill, as will criminals without guns.
Also warning within their story that criminals could care less about gun possession charges because they've already crossed that rubicon into criminality, they warn that it'll be law abiding citizens who end up completely vulnerable should Democrats be successful at creating more 'gun control laws' in America.
Gun possession charges don’t scare criminals
That same criminal who is willing to face the severe penalties for murder and other felonies is not going to be deterred by a misdemeanor or petty offense gun possession charge. Using Chicago‘s handgun ban as an example, what criminal would be willing to risk life in prison for murder, but is afraid of a misdemeanor gun charge that only carries up to a year in prison? Even laws with harsher penalties for gun possession won’t deter criminals, since the crime they are committing while using the gun (such as murder, rape, robbery, carjacking, etc) will all have higher penalties already.
Law abiding citizens obey gun control laws and are left vulnerable as a result
The people who will obey the gun bans are the law abiding citizens, who wouldn’t commit crimes in the first place. Such people are the students at universities, the shoppers at malls, and the other good people in society who die in “gun free zones“. They obey the gun bans because they believe in laws, and because they don’t want a criminal conviction on their record. The problem is that these are the very people who we would want to have guns, since they could help stop criminals and otherwise protected themselves and the rest of society.
With any further gun control laws in Virginia or America sure to lead to many more problems than solutions, especially with widespread and in-your-face deep state/Democrat corruption already unfolding here, we'll take a look below at more thoughts and comments from ANP readers from this November 27th ANP story.
With one of the top rated comments on that story being the meme seen above posted by 'What The Heck' perfectly summing up the thoughts of many, why do Democrats want to disarm law abiding American citizens but suggesting absolutely no ideas to disarm criminals bent upon causing havoc and chaos? Some more of the excellent comments by ANP readers are posted below.
Cathbad: First, Happy Thanksgiving to all as it may be our last normal one for a while.
Second, I predict the next American civil war will break out in Virginia. A repeat of the North state versus the South state clash. This 2nd Amendment Gun Rights fight needs to go viral all across America.
Lastly, a bit of good news - from California of all places. 52 of 58 counties in California have legally and Constitutionally formed an organization to petition the US Congress to form New California, a Constitutional republic. It's interim president will be the former governor of Texas (a Republic), Rick Perry. It could happen before the 2020 election. As we all know old California has become a single party tyranny of Communists running everything from soups to nuts in that state. Many of these maniacs are in the US Congress. Colonel
Robert F. Cunningham: Virginia could have avoided all this safety cum wholesale murder via government by NOT voting these jack*sses into office in the first place!!!
No exception: the way into Marxism is voting stupid - eventually requiring shooting the way out !!!
Irongrampa: We live in the most exceptional county on the planet, populated by an extraordinary people.
We have achieved this through fealty to the most unique political system in history. It has guided us and allowed this nation to prevail over situations that have destroyed lesser political systems.
The current struggle is to prevent a political system antithetical to our very being from gaining ascendancy.
Simple choice here--survive as a nation or not?
Jay: “Our form of government was made only for a moral and religious people; it is wholly inadequate for the governance of any other.” John Adams.
“Ultimately man will be ruled by the Bible or by the bayonet.”
Illegal Behavior Northam:Any legislation for gun control is a violation of the U.S. Constitution, Virginia Constitution, Oath's of Office they take when sworn in, and the inalienable right to self defense by the people.
That means they are operating without authority, illegally and they will be brought to justice for their crimes against the people. There are way more people than those idiots and it's time coming up when they will feel the heat of their illegal attempts.
🕊jr🕊 “ Deep State Target": "What will it say to you if the Inspector General Report and/or Attorney General Bill Barr give all the 'guilty parties' a free pass and/or 'get out of jail free' card with the IG Report possibly a big 'nothing-burger', suggesting that Democrats who engineered this coup and the 'deep state' are 'above the rule of law'"?
Then I will consider that “ rule of law" to be "tyranny" and shall at my own pleasure and choice choose to either obey it or not at each given moment.
But this much I do know ahead of time, the moment mans unrighteous law countermands Gods LAW I will obey Gods and disregard mans out of turn every time.
Chuck C: The way Senate Bill 64 is worded, anyone who is a member of a gun club could also be considered a felon. Elections have consequences. The Republican party didn't even bother to field challengers in many Virginia elections. Either it was a bug or a feature of the political system there. I think a feature.
2020 is the last chance America has to vote to do the right thing. The demoncrats will pull every dirty trick they can to win Senate seats since they have come to realize that they can't win the White House and Congress doesn't matter.
And with the people of Venezuela regretting the gun ban that was imposed upon them by government, what many have called 'a declaration of war against an unarmed population', just imagine what the globalists/democrats might do should they be successful at disarming the American people!
And as we hear in the final video below from videographer 'Guns & Gadgets', what's happening now in Virginia is a huge warning to the rest of America should a Democrat win the presidency in 2020 with Democrats in VA having just taken control there and already wanting to ban just about everything when it comes to 'self defense' and protecting our families from either criminals or outright, in-your-face government tyranny.
