In Virginia State Politics postponing a
bill to the next term is an all around win.

It does mean it will likely be back in 2021 though.

We have been at representative Government longer than anyone else in the New World.

Going forward we all need to remember this. The "It will never happen in my state." mentality. Get past that illusion, as it surely will unless we maintain a united front. Just sayin!

You can be sure the Left will target those 4 Democrats for primary challenges with candidates stuffed with Bloomberg cash and the media.

I was more than happy to help in the modest way that I could, and it would have been more had I been able to do so. You are absolutely correct that whomever of us is willing and able to act together as one front must do so; it is the only way we will defeat our adversaries. This will never be a "State Issue" - evil lurks everywhere and will come out from under the rocks when it senses weakness on our part. Well done to you folks in Va. and elsewhere that helped and/or took part!

That is great news! Congratulations to Virginia gun owners and a special thanks to all who went to the rally. May it be twice as big next year.

Just as we will be targeting the ones that voted against us. That is what is known as politics.

The word in the street was that they were pretty "stuffed with Bloomberg cash" and had the media on their side this year. So much for that.

No doubt, HT77.
I can't help but think that resistance from our side made those four Democrats blink.

Good job and congrats to everyone.

This is the outcome all other states in trouble should be looking at.

Stay in the game, the enemy never sleeps.

There's two issues. The voters across the US have to replace the democrats in the US congress, or the wasted time/money on impeachments against Trump will just continue. And the voters in Virginia need to send a singular 'message' to the democrats that promoted an unconstitutional usurpation of the voters gun rights.

Northam says they'll try again next year. Keep in mind some of those Democrats didn't so much support the 2nd Amendment but rather voted no because they said the bill as drafted was insufficiently exact.

This success has just made the Fox-Business-Channel Mornings with Maria (or whatever the show is called)... Just a 15 sec blip by Maria, but they showed the pissed off look of the Evil-Governor. I enjoyed it.

I wonder how much cash has to be pissed away by this guy until he finally figures out that it’s a negative ROI?? I think it would be smart to keep an eye on where his funding is originating from. Should be much easier to track than secret emails on a private server or a Lewinski under a desk!

Just had another longer interview on regular FOX, VA Dem Peterson (spelling?) State Senator discussed why he voted against the AWB live. He said it was too much and that the Patriots Rally's did matter in swaying opinion. -Go figure ;-)...

"They" said it couldn't be done. :-)

That's good and what was done over there was a great initial effort but don't pop the champagne. I am old enough that I have seen the Left succeed on every issue they have pushed for even though it might take them decades. I saw them destroy the schools, families and marriage and other foundational aspects of our culture and they don't quit. This is not the end of the war but just the beginning.

Which is a good enough excuse for a democrat.

They can't actually come out and say the bill was unconstitutional,
now, could they?

These kinds of battles will never go away. They'll always be going on somewhere. Keep the pressure on, always.

His boss michael Boomberg will not be happy. Not good for a washed up politician.

I think a lot will depend on the national election. If the progressives suffer defeat, the local politicians will notice. And we have state elections in 2021.

Unfortunately a small percentage of voters actually voted in the last election. I hope in 2021, this will galvanize the pro second amendment folks to VOTE.
