Poor Ralphie

An epic faceplant by Virginia Democrats and Ralph Northam, who assumed that a narrow majority meant a mandate for progressive politics. After the state House passed an assault-weapons ban last week, the centerpiece of Northam’s agenda for this legislative year, the state Senate was expected to follow suit. Instead, four Democrats defected and killed the bill for at least this year:

    Think some of those Dem assholes are getting the message?

    • Rayvet says:

      Nope. They’re too stupid to realize when they’ve been beat. They still think they know what’s best for us and believe if they keep on trying to ram something down our throat, we’ll eventually accept it as a necessity. that’s why I find it imperative, and a public service, to continually point out the stupidness that is liberalism and the fact that those that practice it are “not right in the head”. This approach has a tendency to cause liberals to trigger, have meltdowns and seek safe places. Only then do I consider my work done.

    Who saw this coming?….

    They won’t stop. They are obsessed with confiscating guns from the law abiding citizens.

    • anonymous says:

      Yep, its the take-away from legal citizens they are after, not criminals. They already have the majority of felons already in their data base – no word on seeking them out and looking for firearms, right ?

      “That would be profiling !” So what – aren’t legal citizens being profiled right now ?

      This issue isn’t dead, they are just waiting for the gun sanctuary issue to die down. They poked at a hornet’s nest – they will cut the branch down from a different direction. I hope the gun sanctuary counties continue to press on and enact them.

    Doesn’t matter. After the next false flag “mass shooting”, they will call a special session and jam it through anyway.

    TONVOWOOT. Commies gotta commie.

    King Ralph and the Midget-Mike-purchased-Politburo couldn’t deliver. If the asshole Dims didn’t get the message, we’ll have to go through this shit again next year.

  6. Steve says:

    I disagree with his primary statement. This wasn’t a mandate for progressive politics and they weren’t playing it that way. Instead, he and the Democrats were trying to do the same thing that Obama did with Obamacare, ratchet-politics. Even if the Democrats lost control the next election, “it would still be the law”, and ratcheted into place. The citizens would then need to pursue declaring it unconstitutional thru the courts, which is an uncertain prospect, given the Obama appointed judges, and Justice Roberts.

    It’s a setback, but the Left and the Democrats (but I repeat myself) will never give up, and will try again.

      that’s why we’re still arming up and forming up the militia. over 500 mustered in Bedford county last w/e. other counties in progress.

  7. Stretch says:

    “Four moderate Democrats”? Ain’t no such critter. At least the 2 from my neck of the woods. They were afraid the bill, as worded, wouldn’t pass legal muster. Even the heavily Left courts of the Commonwealth and the 4th Federal District might find the bill in contravention of both the Heller and McDonald rulings. They’ll just fall back, regroup, and try again next year. I’m sure they are hoping (their sort doesn’t pray) for a Dem victory in Nov.

  8. Donny Corleone says:

    This is just temporary. They will wait for the furor to die down and then sneak it through while nobody’s paying attention.
    By the way, everyone has fallen into the trap of of using the communist term “assault weapons”. Stop it. You are playing by their rules and using their fake terminology.
    I will say it again; Better harden the fuck up both physically and mentally. Escape your normalcy bias and see things as they are, not as you want them to be.
    It’s coming. Are you prepared?

  9. Pedro says:

    Never ask a libtard/dimmorat/statist/communist for permission. Do what you need to do and forget these morons exist. Is an immoral law to be followed? There is no need to follow immoral legislation, friends.

    • Ohio Guy says:

      Well stated Pedro.Nor should we care what “the other side” legislates. They’re not on “our side” either.

  10. Dan says:

    As long as they are capable of turning Oxygen into Carbon Dioxide they will NEVER cease trying to disarm us so they can use us with impunity. As has been stated…..TINVOWOOT.

  11. the Real Kurt says:

    Someone has lost become entirely unmoored from any hold on
    both history and reality, as shown by this quote:

    “Assault weapons are not protected by the Second Amendment because
    they are weapons of war,” Moran said.

    He’s got it entirely backward – assault weapons are protected by the
    Second Amendment precisely *because* they’re weapons of war.

    Idjits…

    That’s what they’re doing in NH. The gun control bills that were defeated in the legislature this year were the same ones that were defeated last year and the year before that. I can almost guarantee that the same bills will be on the docket next year. All this since constitutional carry was approved three years ago and there is a Second Amendment enumerating the right to keep and bear arms that was enacted in the original State constitution in 1784.

    Not to mention NH has one of the lowest gun crime and violent crime rates in general in the Union.

Play nice.
