Everytown’s Self-Delusional “Victory” in Virginia

The Senator-elect for VA's District 10 thinks Richmond has the final say about gun rights...wrong!

Got another Everytown/Moms Demand Action email, this one from someone who had just gotten elected as state senator for Virginia’s 10th district.


“Last month, we pulled off a huge victory for gun safety in Virginia — we flipped the Virginia General Assembly by electing a Gun Sense Majority in the House of Delegates and State Senate. Everytown and Moms Demand Action were a huge part of our victory.”

“Gun safety”–funny, I don’t recall anything proposed to promote the safe handling of guns we should already have access to.  No, it’s all prohibitionism.

“I am the first Muslim elected to the Virginia State Senate.”

Well, good for her.  She doesn’t tell us how that’s necessary for making Virginia a better place.  I was raised Methodist, have about as much Cherokee as Elizabeth Warren, and a smattering of Ashkenazi Jew.  Impressed yet?

Oh, wait, she says she’ll be a “powerful voice for marginalized communities across Virginia.”  Which I find highly ironic, seeing how Everytown and Moms Demand Action, like their progressive fellow-travelers, are notorious for trying to marginalize gun owners, regardless of whatever other demographic they fall in.  But, I guess that’s equality for ya.


While she tells you about the political successes gun control seems to have won from the last round of elections in Virginia, here’s what she doesn’t tell you:

Over 90% of Virginia’s counties  have declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries,” meaning that those counties have decided not to support further infringements on our civil rights, even if it means defying the state.

That includes one county covered by her district.   Powhatan passed a resolution to be such a sanctuary, and efforts are underway to get Chesterfield County (also in her district) to do the same.

So, don’t think that just because you won a popularity contest with some out-of-state money, that it gives you a carte blanche to run roughshod over civil rights.  And the people of Virginia–which is more than just Richmond–are letting you know just that.
