There are now 91 Sanctuary Localities in Virginia

After last night's local governing board meetings, there are now 91 localities that have passed resolutions declaring themselves 2A Sanctuary Localities, or in a couple of cases (Henrico County for example) that they will uphold the Constitutions of Virginia and the United States.  The gun ban lobby and Governor Northam have taken notice.  At Chesterfield's Board of Supervisors' meeting on Wednesday, there was a massive turnout of gun owners, both inside the Board meeting (the Public Meeting Room only holds about 290 people) and outside at a rally with an estimated crowd of between 2000 and 3000 people in front of the Old Courthouse building where State Senator Amanda Chase.  There was no resolution on the agenda but during their public comment period, they allowed 15 people to address the board on matters not on the agenda.  It was clear from the number of anti-rights speakers (about half of those signed up to speak) that the gun ban lobby has taken notice of the push back around the state.  There is a GOP majority on the Chesterfield Board and they should have included a resolution on the agenda.  For what ever reason, they have chosen not to at this time.  A new Board will take office in January and we will have another opportunity for a resolution to be considered.

You can find updated information about the list of localities that have passed resolutions on the VSSA web site.

Next week's board meetings include:

Monday December 16:
City of Roanoke - There is no resolution on the agenda but there is a "Hearing of Citizens" on the 2:PM part of the agenda which is a good time to again urge the city to pass a resolution.
Montgomery County - There is an item on the agenda to consider a 2A resolution during the meeting scheduled for 7:15 PM.

Tuesday December 17:
Mathews County will vote on a 2A resolution during their 1:00 PM meeting.  The meeting will be held at 17 Church Street, Mathews, VA.
Franklin County - There is no resolution on the agenda.  There are five cititizens signed up for the Public Comment portion of the agenda and one of those may ask the board to consider a resolution.
Stafford County - There is a 2A resolution item under New Business on the 7:00 PM portion of the agenda.
York County - The agenda includes consideration of a "Constitutional County" during the 6:00 PM meeting
Clarke County - There is no resolution for consideration on the agenda but there is a public comment period so that is an opportunity to ask the board to consider and pass a resolution.
Prince Edward County - Will hold a special meeting Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Prince Edward County High School Auditorium, 1482 Zion Hill Road, Farmville, Virginia.  The Board will receive citizen input and consider a resolution regarding declaring Prince Edward County a Second Amendment Santuary County. The meeting is open to the public; however, only citizens and taxpayers of Prince Edward County will have the opportunity to provide input. This is the only item on the agenda for this special meeting and no other items will be discussed at this time.
Vinton Town Council - Council meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month.  An agenda was not available on the web site at the time this was posted but by clicking the link ahead of Tuesday the agenda may be available.

Wednesday December 18
Accomack County - The Board will have a public comment period and have an item listed as "Discussion of Second Amendment Resolution" on the 5:00 PM agenda.
Amelia County - The Board will consider a 2A resolution at the meeting scheduled for 7:00 PM at Amelia County High School

Anderson and Associates Law Firm Gives Gun Law Updates

Found this thanks to the VA2ANews You Tube Video channel.  It is highly recommended you listen to this.  The Attorney talks about the new talk about the so-called "grandfather" clause in the "assault weapons" ban bill.  Let me be clear,  VSSA opposes registration, and VSSA opposes a ban on modern sporting rifles.  It is VSSA's responsibility to keep members and gun owners informed so that is why this video is being shared.


Governor Northam Substitutes Registration for Confiscation of Modern Sporting Rifles

Virginia Mercury is reporting that Governor Northam is pulling back from his proposal to ban the possession of modern sporting rifles.
“In this case, the governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period,” Northam spokeswoman Alena Yarmosky said in a statement Monday evening. “Additional details on this and all other bills will be announced prior to the start of the upcoming session.”

Though legislation for the 2020 General Assembly session is still being written, gun-rights supporters have directed a wave of outrage at an early draft of a bill filed by incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw, D-Fairfax. Saslaw’s legislation would have made it a felony to possess an pistol, rifle or shotgun that falls under its “assault weapon” definition after the bill takes effect and didn’t appear to make any exceptions for gun owners who already have them.

In a brief phone interview Monday night, Saslaw said the bill he filed won’t be the main assault weapon proposal and will be amended at a later date. Asked about the governor’s support for grandfathering in existing weapons, Saslaw said “that would make sense.”

“I’m not going to lock up a large part of Virginia,” Saslaw said.
Saslaw sure seemed ready to lock up thousands of Virginians a month ago when he introduced the bill.  Northam and Saslaw probably think this will appease the thousands of people who have packed local governing boards meetings over the past month.  Don't bet on it!

Graphic by Gun Rights Watch

VSSA's position of opposing any bill that bans the most popular rifle in America is not changing.  Simply adding a grandfathering clause and requiring registration of currently owned firearms doesn't change that.  VSSA will oppose any bill at the state legislature that bans the sale or purchase of any firearm.

Sanctuary Localities Now Total 59

Graphic by Gun Rights Watch

On Tuesday, 13 more localities heard and passed 2A Sanctuary Resolutions. The new localities are:

City of Franklin
Galax

Junior Shooter Tells Fairfax Board Why She Supports 2A Sanctuaries

Earlier this week, the Fairfax Board of Supervisors heard from a packed room of constituents why Fairfax should be come a 2A Sanctuary Locality. The board unfortunately did not pass a resolution. You can see the entire video of the meeting here and here.  But there was one portion that really stood out to me.  It was a young lady who is a member of her high school Junior ROTC program, and is also a competitive shooter, shooting USPSA, 3Gun and is on her school's Junior ROTC Shooting Team.  In less than two minutes she explained why she supported the resolution.  If Senate Bill 16, introduced by incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw passes and is signed into law, competitors like the one in the below video would no longer be able to compete in their chosen sport and would even have their driving privileges revoked if they were caught with one of the banned firearms, some of which are used in competitions like 3-Gun.  If you know shooters like the young lady in the video, please make sure they are at the Virginia State Capitol on January 20th to let the legislature and the Governor know they responsibly use firearms that would be banned by SB16 and that they oppose the legislation.


Delegate Nick Freitas Gives A Pep Talk Before Orange County Board of Supervisors Meeting

Delegate Nick Freitas is well known for his support of the Second Amendment thanks to his viral video from the floor of the House of Delegates a couple years ago.  He was at the Orange County Board of Supervisor's meeting earlier this week and gave the below pep talk to attendees ahead of the meeteing.

Delegate Freitas announced earlier this week that he is running for the GOP nomination to challenge anti-rights Congresswomen Abigail Spanberger in the 7th Congressional District.  He joins a handful of other candidates running for the nomination which will be decided by a nominating convention in 2020.

Two More Localities Pass 2A Sanctuary Resolutions

Last night, Scott County and Augusta County joined the list of counties, towns, and cities that have passed 2A Sanctuary Resolutions.  Also meeting last night were Fluvanna County and the City of Suffolk.  Fluvanna deffered their vote to next Wednesday, December 11.  Suffolk however took no action.

NBC29 in Charlottesville had coverage of the Fluvanna meeting.  They also spoke with retiring Charolottesville Democrat Dave Tascono.  He said he finds the resolutions problematic.  He claims the country is already a Second Amendment Santucary because of the Constitution.  That's interesting since that has not seemed to stop those that want to infringe on our rights.

The Staunton News Leader had  live coverage of the Augusta meeting.  After the vote, the reporter tweeted the comment of one supervisor:
The reporter Clair Mitzel also shared this photo of the crowd.


Townhall.com has this piece on how some Sheriffs are speaking out in favor of the resolutions too.  Some Commonwealth Attorneys have expressed support too.
Appomattox Commonwealth’s Attorney Leslie “Les” Fleet is on the same page as Simpson. Fleet said he believes in abiding by the law, as long as it’s a constitutional law. “The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land and as such, I will not enforce [prosecute] any state or local statute that violates the federal or state constitutions. I will wait and see what comes out of Richmond this coming session, but if I believe a law infringes on a 2A right, the sheriff-elect and I are on the same page, that law will not be enforced in Appomattox County,” Fleet said in an email Nov. 30.
Norfolk Democrat Delegate Jay Jones has asked Attorney General Mark Herring for a formal opinion on the Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolutions. You can probably guess what he is going to say.

The gun ban lobby and some gun ban elected officials are taking notice of this movement and are trying to create a new narrative.  One is that it is one state gun group that is pushing this. Nevermind the fact that each of these meetings have upwards of 600 - 1500 people attending.   The Democratic Party of Virginia is even attacking the group's leader with this online article.  A number of the things they cite in their attack are taken out of context.  But as Bearingarms.com's editor Cam Edwards stated on his show yesterday, this movement is bigger than one group or one person.  The other narrative is that Virginians overwhelmingly favor the gun control proposals being put forward.  You can find numerous news articles yesterday talking about a new Roanoke College poll that shows support in Virginia for more gun control.  Expect more of this from the gun ban lobby and their willing accomplices in the media.

The meetings continue tonight. Surry County has a 2A Sanctuary Resolution on their agenda tonight, at 7 pm. It is item #7 under the Consent Items on the agenda. The meeting will be held at:

General District Courtroom
Surry County Government Center
45 School Street
Surry, VA 23883

Tuesday Brought 11 New 2A Sanctuary Resolution Approvals

Tuesday was another good day/night for gun owners as 11 more localities approved 2A Sanctuary Resolutions.  Joining the growing list are:

Alleghany County
Amherst County
Culpeper County
City of Norton
Gloucester County
Goochland County
King George County
Middlesex County
Orange County
Page County
Roanoke County

Four additional localities held hearings on resolutions but did not vote:

Danville
Fairfax County
Virginia Beach
York County

Of particular note was VSSA's home of Orange County.  VSSA Executive Director Lu Charette was there and provided this update:
"Originally the Orange County Board of Supervisors were not to vote on the Sanctuary issue this evening but, several hundred folks turned out in support of the passage. 42 spoke in favor of passing the action and one opposed. After nearly two hours of folks public speaking the Board was almost forced to take an action. There was a motion made to pass then there was an amendment made and accepted, seconded and the vote in favor passed 4 to 1. The one Nay vote was predicted well before the meeting began. "
BoS-Bowman_3563.jpg

What Lu was referring to when he said "forced to take action" is reported in the Daily Progress:
Before the proposed resolution received a second (ultimately from Crozier), Johnson reminded the audience that the issue at hand involves “proposed” legislation at this point and to condemn actions that haven’t yet happened is a “futile gesture,” though he assured the audience if the general assembly adopted legislation that was contra-constitutional, the board would oppose it.

Crozier said Orange County could be “leaders instead of lemmings” when it came to opposing proposed overreaching gun legislation. “We want to stand above and ahead of places that have just rubber-stamped what others have done,” he said.

Citizens then implored the board with shouts of “put it to a vote,” and “we want a sanctuary county,” and “let’s see who’s not for it” and “it’s time to act,” and “where do you stand?”

White reminded the audience “it’s no good to make noise without impact,” and chastised those who walked out angrily.

“How do we take an unconstitutional act to condemn an unconstitutional act by others? How do we square that up?” he asked.

The board voted 5-0 in favor of Johnson’s motion and the proposed resolution.

But the audience wasn’t satisfied.
The amendment Lu referred to was also reported by the Daily Progress. An attendee named Paul Moog, who spoke earlier and identified himself as "a Navy veteran who had taken an oath to protect the country from enemies foreign and domestic" offered a solution:
“I think it’s clear we all want the same thing,” White said. “The question is how do we get there?”

Amid shouts about “sanctuary county!” and “show a little backbone,” and “join the other counties!” Moog recommended the board adopt a second resolution that “Orange is a Second Amendment sanctuary and you’ll do everything in your constitutional power to defend the Second Amendment rights of Orange County citizens,” receiving one of the largest cheers of the evening.

He suggested it was an “elegant solution,” allowing the board to “support citizens’ rights without violating the law.”

Crozier then turned Moog’s comments into a motion, and rather than adopt a second resolution, “and confuse the dear souls in Richmond,” Johnson recommended submitting just one combined resolution, blending the two.

Frame had issue though and asked if the motion could be amended to remove calling Orange County a “sanctuary county,” but didn’t have support for a second.

Ultimately, the board voted 4-1 on the new, combined amendment, with Frame dissenting. A hearty cheer from the hundreds remaining ensued and the board adjourned after two and a half hours.
Besides being a Navy vet, Moog is also a VSSA Life Member.

Additional localities will be considering hearing and/or voting on resolutions today/tonight:

Albemarle County, Suffolk, Fluvanna County, and Augusta County.

VSSA will continue to provide coverage here on the blog and look for a complete wrap-up of the week's activity in Friday's eBullet.

NYSRPA vs New York After Action Report

Gun Talk's Tom Gresham was at the U.S. Supreme Court today for the oral arguments in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association vs City of New York.  He posted his thoughts after the proceedings.  He noted that there was a relatively large turn out of gun ban folks at the court, likely paid for by Bloomberg, with loud speakers and a list of speakers.  There wondered why the pro-rights community did not have a similar showing.

Gresham said he does not believe the Court will find the case moot, but he also said while he believes we will get a favorable ruling, it is likely it will not go as far as we want.  We'll have to wait and see.  You can see he report below.

Second Amendment Sanctuary Localities Push Back on Gun Ban Onslaught

Since the November 5th Election, 23 counties and towns have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries.  What is a Second Amendment Sanctuary? A Second Amendment Sanctuary is any locality that says it will not enforce any unconstitutional (federal or state) gun laws. Many sheriffs are going to take the County's lead on this and county police could be told not to enforce such laws either.  Localities may decide not to use local tax dollars to enforce federal and/or state gun control laws.

The 23 localities to date are:
Appomattox, Bland, Botetourt, Campbell, Carroll, Charlotte, Dickenson, Dinwiddie, Giles, Henry, King William, Lee, Madison, Nottoway, Patrick, Pittsylvania, Powhatan, Rural Retreat, Southampton, Sussex, Tazewell County, Washington, Wythe.

These are resolutions and don't carry the force of law and it needs to be remembered that Virginia is a Dillon Rule state which means state law determines what localities can and can't do.  While this show of defiance is encouraging, gun owners need to remember that the fact that a locality passes a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary resolution doesn't change the fact that if bills like Senate Bill 16 passes next year and is signed into law, you will still be a felon if you own the banned items in the bill, as competitive shooter Todd Jarret said in the below video on Thanksgiving Day.


There are a number of counties that have scheduled to hear or vote on 2A Sanctuary Resolutions. The list that we currently have and meeting times are below.  If you live in one of these counties or cities and can attend, you should be there and speak in favor of these resolutions.  If you can't attend, please contact your member of the town or city council, or member of the Board of Supervisors and let them know you support the resolution being considered.
