West Virginia Legislature: Virginia Pro-Gun-Rights Counties Invited to Secede and Join WV

WEST VIRGINIA LAWMAKERS are pushing a resolution inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to become constituents of West Virginia.

AWR Hawkins reported that West Virginia lawmakers introduced a resolution, HCR8, which is inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to join the state of West Virginia.

This resolution alludes to 1863, the very year Republicans broke off from slave-owning Virginia and formed West Virginia.

At the time, the people of Western Virginia did not believe “the government at Richmond” represented their interests.

Now, another divide is emerging. But this time its concerns gun rights issues.

So far, 118 local governments in Virginia have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries.

West
Virginia Delegates are using the resolution to declare that gun rights
are on the chopping block in Virginia and that counties who choose to
become a part of West Virginia will have their Second Amendment rights
protected.

HCR 8 stated:

Whereas,
Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West
Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into,
and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and
of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas,
In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby
extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to
join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the
government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent
county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the
body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set
forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a
majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such
proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be
addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights
shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and
State Constitution. 

Several
Delegates such as “Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin,
Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster,
Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter and
Linville” are sponsors of this legislation.

This
resolution demands that a Special Session of state legislators plan “a
special election to provide for the approval of the admission, or, the
rejection of such admission, of such county or independent city.”

The Associated Press reported that Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam will announce a gun ban on January 20, 2020, when a peaceful pro-gun rally is set to take place.

Tensions are heating up in Virginia as many Second Amendment supporters believe their right to keep and bear arms in under grave danger thanks to demographic change which has led to a majority anti-gun-rights coalition of leftists, Jews, and other non-Whites in the Virginia General Assembly.

Many fear that the weapons and firearms accessories that law-abiding gun owners have traditionally owned could be threatened by new legislation which undermines this otherwise lawful ownership of firearms.
