It appears that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is about to take a shot at pushing the citizens of his state to the point of an armed rebellion not all that different than that which took place during the Revolutionary War or the Civil War.
In just a few days, the legislature of Virginia is about to be yielded to the Democrats, and one of the highest actions that Governor Northam has prioritized is to forcibly separate law-abiding gun owners from their legally-owned guns.
Over 100 local governmental jurisdictions around the state have already declared themselves to be second amendment gun sanctuaries, yet Northam is spouting rhetoric that indicates that he will stop at nothing to enact his unconstitutional beliefs regarding gun control.
A detail that makes this turn of events so ominous is the fact that he has a backer with some VERY deep pockets — none other than the billionaire, Michael Bloomberg, who has also thrown his hat into the ring at the last minute as a 2020 presidential candidate.
The reason we should be up in arms about Bloomberg’s participation in the effort is manifold. For one, he is on record as being an open sympathizer of the Communist Party of China. He is also the founder of the far-left group Everytown for Gun Safety, which outspent the NRA in Virginia during the 2018 elections and was a major factor in helping Democrats take over the entire state.
In response, many NRA billboards have popped up around the state, and the NRA website that points directly to the issue has even posted a countdown timer to show the exact time and date of the deadline of the Democrat turnover.
"A slew of pro-#2A [@NRA] billboards have started to pop up around #Virginia raising awareness of the radical anti-gun agenda that Dems in the state are prepared to impose on law-abiding citizens with the backing of Michael Bloomberg." @RealSaavedra https://t.co/chwW8rmeBb

Governor Northam is vowing “consequences” for counties that refuse to enforce the new gun controls. Representative Donald McEachin (D-VA) went so far as to suggest that the National Guard should be called in to force Virginians to comply with the radical new agenda.
I think the governor and the rest of the radical Dems that want to start this gun confiscation mess need to take a step back and come to grips with the fact that they’re on the verge of starting Civil War II.
Above all, I hope the National Guardsmen stand on their Constitutional rights ahead of the orders of a would-be tyrant and refuse to obey the governor’s unlawful mandate to attack their fellow citizens.
