Things are really getting heated in Virginia as liberals try their best to confiscate American’s gun now that the state is being fully run by communist progressives.
Gun owners are not sitting back and accepting these unconstitutional laws. They’re fighting back in a big way.
Patriotic citizens have formed grassroots militia groups and now vets and police officers are joining, vowing to fight against these tyrannical liberals.
Virginia is a Second Amendment powder keg with liberals threatening to light the fuse in January. Democrats take control of both the state’s Senate and House of Delegates next month for the first time in 24 years. Radical-left Governor Ralph Northam is in place and giddy with the prospect of transforming Virginia into a gun-free, progressive utopia.
The left is calling it “common-sense gun safety legislation.” But citizen militias are exploding in numbers across the state and law enforcement officers, military service members, and citizens are vowing: “I will not comply,” to the perceived declaration of “war on gun owners.”
Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League characterized the reality facing law-abiding residents there, in a letter he wrote to VCDL members.

The grassroots backlash has been building for a while now. But it’s gotten so big and so serious that it now includes an overwhelming amount of local support from citizens from 114 state counties and cities declaring themselves gun sanctuaries.
A recent map of those sanctuaries (shown in green) was tweeted out by Van Cleave.

Liberals are unfazed by the growing opposition to their gun control plans. “I don’t think there’s anything to be afraid of,” Northam told reporters, according to The Virginian-Pilot.
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, issued a warning that the sanctuary resolutions had no legal standing. “It is my opinion that these resolutions have no legal effect,” he wrote.
The Virginian-Pilot tried to minimize the effect of opposition to gun control when they reported in November that “experts say retribution for lawmakers is unlikely once the laws go into effect, and support for stricter gun control will overpower any opposition from pro-gun-rights groups.” [Bizpacreview]
Meanwhile, Law Enforcement Today is reporting on the opposition to the assault on citizens’ 2A liberties and the upcoming confrontation.
Last week, LET updated readers with this headline “police, veterans, residents join exploding militia.”
Law Enforcement Today reports being “overwhelmed with hundreds of messages from veterans and active members of the military stating: ‘I will not comply.’”
The situation in Virginia is having a major impact on other parts of the country, as well. “While Virginia is turning into a whole different kind of ‘battleground state’, we’re receiving messages from people in Washington, Oregon, Arizona, New Mexico, and California saying their own militias are exploding in numbers,” the group reported.
We love seeing this kind of FIGHT from patriots across the country! Keep it up. We won’t ever back down to these tyrants.
Dems have awakened a sleeping giant and they have no idea what they’re up against now.
