Bloomberg Buys Virginia: Legislature Flips Blue, Path Cleared for Gun Control Laws

Do you remember the ambitious gun control agenda proposed by Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam? After yesterday’s election results in the Old Dominion, there will be nothing to stop him from enacting virtually every aspect of it. That includes a red flag law, one gun a month limits and universal background checks.

So you’d better get out there, Virginia gun owners, and buy those assaulty-looking rifles and 30-round magazines while you still can. Because while wearing black shoe polish on your face may be perfectly acceptable in Virginia, selling standard capacity magazines is likely to be unacceptable in polite society soon.

As CNN reported in a story titled, How a Bloomberg-funded gun-control group helped turn Virginia blue Tuesday. . .

On Tuesday in Virginia, all three seats flipped from Republican to Democrat — after a $2.5 million spending spree in the state by Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun-control group aligned with billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The investments made the Bloomberg-affiliated organization the largest outside spender in the elections that saw Democrats take control of the state’s executive and legislative branches for the first time in a generation.

Everytown officials — who provided CNN with details of their Virginia strategy — say their approach to the off-year election demonstrates the potency of the gun-safety message one year before the nation heads to the polls to decide control of Congress and the White House. The spending also underscores how aggressively the deep-pocketed group will pursue its agenda in the months ahead. Everytown outspent the embattled National Rifle Association by roughly 8-to-1 in Virginia, plowing money into the state to target vulnerable Republicans months in advance of Tuesday’s election.

“Gun safety will be one of the defining issues of 2020,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown.

The AP notes a gleeful Governor Coonman with visions of gun control laws dancing in his head . . .

Northam, speaking at a Cabinet meeting, promised swift action on a host of liberal policy proposals, with a particular emphasis on gun control measures.

He said Democratic gains were largely powered by voters who wanted to see commonsense gun laws enacted and noted that Republicans adjourned a special session earlier this year called in response to a mass shooting in Virginia Beach in less than 90 minutes “with no results.”

“The landscape has changed,” Northam said.

        Yeah, I’m not ready to let to NRA off the hook. They need to get their act together and get a heck of a lot more aggressive if they want to help states hold onto 2nd Amendment Rights.

        That said, Virginia voters need to accept some personal responsibility here. The NRA could have spent a billion dollars, but at the end of the day the voter gotta vote. There’s no excuse for sitting at home when your rights are on the line. In 10 years or so, when the confiscations begin in Virginia, you’ll all regret not getting off the couch in 2019 to vote for your rights.

          It had nothing to do with gun owners not voting. The red areas stayed red.

          Earlier this year districts were reorganized in a way that heavily favored Democrats. Once red districts were redrawn to include areas packed with D voters. Not to mention NoVa has been invaded by more and more DC cretins, and idiots who vote Democrat in northern states then move here to escape the mess they’ve created, and somehow CONTINUE TO VOTE DEMOCRAT.

          We’ve been getting sabotaged for years and they finally gained enough ground.

      bloomberg is worth $60 BILLION dollars. The NRA could spend every dollar they have and bloomberg could counter that with the money in his checking account.

      bloomberg is a problem because of the massive amount of money he has, it can have an effect.

      Look what happened in the 2018 election in WA state where a bunch of billionaries (paul allen, steve ballmer and a few others) outspent the NRA and pro gun groups 10 to 1.

      1. avatar Charlie Foxtrot says:

        The NRA spent $300k in VA. That’s it. It was outspent by Bloomberg in VA by 8:1.

        The NRA spends $100k PER DAY on their lawyers and over $1M per year on Wayne LaPierre’s salary. The last reported annual revenue of the NRA was $400M.

        It is not that the NRA has no money to spend. It is that the NRA spends it on the wrong things.

      Republicans are complicit in the downfall. They have no intention of saving the republic form of government America was intended to be. They want a police state where law enforcement becomes the domestic military force that enforces the government’s rule over the individual.

      America is no longer the land of the free and home of the brave. That’s the truth (and you know it). Trump only made it worse.

    Don’t you think they will ban possession of anything they ban buying and selling of?

    We ALL need to be thinking long and hard about what “we will not comply” really means and whether or not we are willing to go through that.

    1. avatar Dan Zimmerman says:

      No. I don’t. They’ll probably only ban new sales.

      1. avatar Mike Hawkizard says:

        Dan read HB4021 and revise your statement.

        1. avatar DDay says:

          CA banned possession of 30 round mags and a Federal judge just ruled against CA earlier this year and threw out the entire mag ban. The ruling overturned the ban on 30 round mag sales too. It’s on appeal to the 9th circuit now

          The 9th circuit is much less liberal than it was a few years ago, mcconnell and trump are changing the 9th. Of the 29 judges, right now it’s 16 dem’s, 13 GOP. Trump has put 9 judges on that court in less than 3 years. If trump gets a second term, he’ll flip the loony 9th to a conservative majority circuit.

          He’s already put judges on the 3rd and 11th and flipped those to majority GOP control. He will flip the 2nd circuit soon with a few pending nominees.

      2. avatar Jake says:

        And then make possession illegal too.

      3. avatar Matt says:

        Yup, the proposed law bans them. Render inoperable, turn them in or remove them from the state. Those are your options. Zero option to modify even like Cali and a couple of other states allow.

        Might pass. I also would guess they might see at least mild modifications before passing, like allowing grandfathering. If they don’t, best chance of any AWB to get successfully challenged in court as it would be the most extreme AWB on the books.

      Government being your daddy and mommy is far more appealing to the fearful and dumb. Most people want to be taken care of by someone else.

      The educational system in America was designed to “teach” the kids to be powerless victims. This is why you see young people always playing victim every opportunity they get in every aspect of life. They don’t know how to empower themselves, instead they cry out for someone to save them. Call the police, pass a new law, beg a politician to guide them through life forever.

      I was wondering why I felt like being weak/sick was an opportunity to get some attention and personal benefit. I figured out that the government has made me want to be a victim in order to get treated like a poor baby who needs special attention and care. If you are intelligent enough to figure that out you feel disgusted for thinking about being a snowflake seeking a special safe space created by others.

      The government tries to weaken your mind and body so you run to them to be saved. Most people fall for it, including Republicans.

        One of our rural county high schools in 2016 had a lockdown as the result of hearing gunshots on the first day of hunting season.

        A month later at a gun-grabber Democrat candidate forum (that I was asking hard questions of) they had 4 students on stage talking about their experiences of being a “gun violence survivor”.

        Yep, some idiot hears gun shots out in the distant woods on the first day of hunting season and now there are 300+ “gun violence survivors” at the school. They wallow in their “victimhood”.

    This is just a continuation of a trend. that won’t stop. Virginia was solid Red until millennials and immigrants flooded into Northern VA to work for the Govt and big tech. Couple this with current crop of govt workers and there was no turning back. Look for Florida to go next. MASSIVE immigration(both legal and illegal) and flood of NY/NJ people will turn that solid blue in next decade. NC will follow as well. Young progressives are flooding Charlotte and Raleigh. Raleigh is full of Indian tech workers who have kids here and get their citizenship…they vote solid blue. Legal/illegal immigrants are flooding Texas along with Californians and that will be blue just like they turned Colorado blue. Arizona is also not far behind. In South Carolina where I live I already see the Blue trend starting as well.

    This spreads like a cancer. There isn’t a state in the Union that is going the other way.

    1. avatar JP Ruiz says:

      Everything of scenario you listed happened to New Mexico, Washington State, Oregon, and…….CALIFORNIA in the 1990’s.

      Those States were the harbinger of things to come regarding the Democrat Party Playbook of turning this Country into something like that of Nicaragua under Daniel Ortega……….and the steaming pile of D**S*** Republican Party is just about “go along to get along”.

    2. avatar Dude says:

      That seems to be the strategy. I would say they eventually grow up or get red-pilled, but like JP Ruiz said, California. There doesn’t seem to be any turning back from that.

      We need to not only demand a stop to illegal immigration, but stop Disney, big tech, etc. from bringing in lower paid legal immigrants to replace Americans. If the skilled workforce they need doesn’t exist in this country, then they need to invest in training one. That would be a win win for this country, but democrats, along with big corporations will fight that tooth and nail.

      1. avatar Albert Speary says:

        LEGAL immigration is a huge issue for gun rights and one never addressed. The vast majority…..and I would wage nearly all…maybe 95% of legal immigrants don’t care about gun rights or are openly hostile to them. They come from countries with zero gun rights, have never owned guns, and were taught from birth only the govt and police should have them. They almost exclusively vote Dem as they love big govt. They aren’t coming here for the freedom but for a better living. And it’s not racist to say that….white people from England, France, or Norway immigrating here are just like that as well.

        I’ve seen in personally at my job. I work for a big bank in Raleigh. The building I work in is 70% Indian. Every single one of them is young and married. They almost all either have a young child(born in US) or one on the way. They talk about how this makes getting citizen ship easier. Almost all of them have brought one or both sets of parents over. They will become citizens as well.
        I’ve had extensive conversations with them and have yet to meet one who is okay with gun rights. They view gun ownership as something to be feared and want them all banned. They all vote Dem and want free health care, education, etc. They really don’t care at all about freedom of speech, gun rights, etc.

        I can easily see NC turning blue as the economic boom in Raleigh and Charlotte bring in so many immigrants and yankees that their numbers overwhelm any People of the GUn

        1. avatar Dude says:

          Yep. And for the record, I’m not talking about regular immigration where people apply for citizenship and THEN come over as citizens. I’m just talking about work visas where they come and compete for jobs with citizens; then once they’re here, they either don’t leave when they’re supposed to or start a family etc. to get an advantage by having their babies born as citizens.

          I think the people that go through the process of citizenship first have more respect for this country and it’s laws.

        2. avatar JP Ruiz says:

          “They all vote Dem and want free health care, education, etc”.

          And in doing so, they recreate the Countries that they come from, and that prospect of a better living they seek, evaporates. The Lily White Liberal Eurotrash are the worst. I met quite a few of them when I was in NJ.

          NJ and NY Transplants are another example. Flee their Shit-Show Progressive Utopias and then recreate them in the Red States that they move to.

        3. avatar Migrant says:

          As a legal immigrant, I admit to arriving on these shores very leery of civilian gun rights. That said in the required 4 years of living in the US before getting citizenship (and hence voting rights), my opinion flipped to a strong 2A supporter. And a similar story holds for a majority of other legal international migrants I have personally met.

          The difference between my experience and your experience of migrants is one of naturalization. I arrived expecting to live here permanently. I adopted the local American culture, I surrounded myself with locals (not other migrants), I listened and learned. I did not demand people pander to customs from my homeland. So did most of the other international migrants I’ve met.

          By the sounds of your experience, the problem is they are not melting into the great melting pot; but living in a bubble. This is exacerbated by the “progressive” notion that migrants should not change, but everyone else should change for them. But I rarely meet these people because I don’t socialize in that bubble.

          I saw the same thing happen from the country I left behind. The migrants that came and adapted; adopted local values and were welcomed. The migrants who didn’t, self-ghettoized, and became unwelcome. I see the same phenomenon happening in my State, with transplants from the usual liberal utopias. Moving here, surrounding themselves with other escapees, and attempting to change their new home to match their old.

      2. avatar Chief Censor says:

        Trump said he wants to increase legal immigration to fill jobs that American can’t/won’t do. He wants millions. He is a business man after all and he will go back to that sooner than later. It benefits him to make America a strong corporate state. Republicans are no against this. Look what Ronald Reagan did.

        America is not a free market capitalist society. Republican voters look at such a system as an anarchist’s dreamland. They hate such liberty orientated systems. They want a controlled society that brings them a safe space they call stability and predictable outcomes. In other words, current day Republicans are socialists in one way or another.

        The obvious outcome is an eventual collapse of human rights in the U.S. Heck, Republicans argue if you are not an American citizen, or you are not on U.S. soil, you have no human rights. The next generation will make sure to turn the lights out.

    “…who provided CNN with details of their Virginia strategy — say their approach to the off-year election demonstrates the potency of the gun-safety message…”

    If $2.5 million to flip three seats at the state level in an off year with no real out-o-state opposition money to counter you is “potent” you might be a bit derpy. The average cost of such a race, nationwide, is like $5 million. They dumped something like $830,000/candidate extra on top of that to win, a ~16.6% spending boost. That is, in a word, unsustainable.

    If that’s the game they want to play, well, damn, I’ll play all day and stay up late on the weekends considering that the DNC is already borrowing money for next year to the tune of $800,000/month and they currently $7 million in the bank with $6.2 million in debt. The GOP, for whatever they’re worth, have $34.7 million banked with no debt and are out-raising the Dems 2.5:1.

    On top of that you didn’t really manage to elect what would be considered “Lefty” candidates from a nationwide perspective. Yeah, they’re Democrats but they’re still not

        When it comes to actual elections I’d be far, far more concerned about the way the GOP, POTG and OFWG’s seem hell-bent on insulting and alienating people 18-35. That’s more than 21 million people who can vote without an act of the legislature. That age group had nearly record high turnout last time around and still only hit 35%. You don’t need to tick off that many of them to make the felons getting the vote inconsequential.

      This is coupled with too many of those on our side refusing to the see this and get out to vote.

      Also, the “Russian Collusion” WHORESHIT has infused an attitude in the Leftwing of America that they have Entitled Birthright to Political Office, and that any loss they suffer (2016) means that the Election of said political Office was stolen from them.

    Will racist abortionist Governor Coonman sign these new laws in Blackface or Justin Trudeau “brown face”?

    1. avatar Chris T in KY says:

      Thats a good question. But I would add, will Gov “Coon face” showup in a KKK uniform to sign the gun control bills into law? Since the other person in the picture was in Klan robes. I don’t believe he was in black face. I believe the future Virginia governor was wearing a KKK uniform in that photograph.

    Someone needs to draw a political cartoon with all these newly elected Delegates and Senators all lined up with their pants pulled down just a little bit while Bloomburg walks down the line branding his ownership mark on their butts.

    I’m hoping The SCOTUS will put an end to this crap. New York’s lawyers have a major knot in the knickers because SCOTUS insists on reviewing the unconstitutional laws NY has since disappeared. The momentum seems to indicate they will rule on states ignoring the constitution till they get caught. Or at least more clearly define the 2A.

    1. avatar Ross says:

      “Or at least more clearly define the 2A”?

      The 2A is the clearest of them all, SCOTUS will not save the 2A, we are going to have to fight at some point in the not too distance future.

    LMAO!!! Just as I predicted you Jethro’s are losing your grip on your guns – pun intended. 2021 will be a glorious year for People of Color as we take all of your damn guns and dismantle each and every one, melting them down for scrap. Kamala Harris may not be our next president but she will lead POC, immigrants, and indigenous peoples back to power and status. You Jethro’s will lose everything. White racist/supremacist’s will be buried under a tidal wave of blue. Socialism will reign supreme in this, “our” country. There will be rich rewards for informants even as you Jethro’s scurry to hide your weapons of mass violence. One by one the U.N. troops will come to your doors, K-9’s at the ready and you will give up all to our socialist regime or face the consequences. We will take knives, trucks, anything that represents violence and aggression against People of Color. Your kind will be buried forever and the constitution will be rewritten in 2021. The media will control all and you will bow to us or be reeducated. Your minds and bodies are ours. You have no control anymore. Live with that Jethro’s and Hillbillies.

      Can anyone tell me if the white Tranny is pro civil rights or anti civil rights?
      It’s an important question with Virginia history involved.
      I already know “its” pro great gay sex.

      https://nypost.com/2019/11/05/danica-roem-first-transgender-lawmaker-reelected-in-virginia/

      Anyone upset by my questions needs to ask themselves if they really support civil rights????

    2. avatar Dani in WA says:

      Trucks represent violence and aggression against “people of color”?
      Just who are these “people”?
      How do you, specifically, identify them?
      How many “people” do you speak for when you say “we”?
      Do these “people” you identify have different needs compared to those you do not identify?
      Oxygen, food, shelter, treatment under the law, ability to defend oneself and family…
      Please describe the difference, child.

      1. avatar Chris T in KY says:

        Again more distractions. Blowing smoke. But still not answering my questions. Mayor Pete Buttigieg also supports great gay sex. But he DOES NOT SUPPORT Civil Rights.

        Does this white Tranny support civil rights????

        It seems I have to do YOUR homework for you.

    What really happened:

    Virginia is trending blue due to a continued influx of tech workers, federal workers, and immigrants, but none of these groups are particularly dedicated voters. The name of the game is turnout particularly in low-turnout, off year elections, so Bloomberg saw an opportunity and pumped lots of money into ads dedicated into scaring those suburban moms and others leaning Democrat, who previously weren’t particularly concerned, silly. The object being to drive those with time to go to the polls and vote in the gun control candidates. At the same time not particularly motivated gun owners were too busy, didn’t work too hard at motivating 2a voters, and didn’t get around to it themselves.

    Demographic trends are disturbing, but as Migrant (above) suggests from his own experience maybe it is incumbent on us to work a little harder to help naturalize new immigrants and tech workers, who need to be deprogrammed from their recent educational experience (I live near a big university). Get to know them and take them to the range, or perhaps in the case of interested people hunting. Particularly those who come from countries (or states) where gun ownership is virtually prohibited are curious, but fearful. Get them over their initial fear, teach them safe gun handling practices, and offer to take them out shooting. A trip like this with someone they trust to help bridge the very real cultural divide that surrounds those of us who grew up in the American gun culture will be tempting. I have a brother-in-law from Cleveland, who owns guns and still has problems range etiquette. Then remember the smiles that often come from an initial positive experience at the range. If you can get that grin you will have a convert with a little luck for life and a lot more American culturally.

    I frankly don’t care what color my neighbors are or where they come from, what I care about is do they share my values and I have a number of friends with way different backgrounds than mine, who do.

    Republicans gave VA away. They failed to run candidates in all districts (which was a lot of districts), some candidates screwed up their paperwork to register for the ballot, and multiple close votes that could have been flipped if a few hundred idiots got off the couch and voted.

    I’m already looking for a storage location for my NFA stuff out of state incase shit gets real. I also have purchased weapons that usually get missed by AWBs over the past few years. I guess they want us using full power rifle cartridges for home defense? Because that’s what I got in semi auto if I can’t own my other semi autos with standard capacity mags.

    To those saying there will be a boogaloo, there won’t. The super bowl is only a few months away, and people aren’t going to miss the commercials and halftime show for the boogaloo.

  28. avatar moreadventuresonotherplanets says:

    The Dems were dancing in the streets today and screaming all the semi-auto’s and magazines that hold over 1 round will now be illegal with a 20 year prison sentence and 250,000 dollar fine. New red flag laws will take all your guns if you get caught spitting on the street. SCOTUS of course is getting ready to conveniently leave town during any appeals of course and then let the lower courts bless it all and then take the heat.

    And if you think this is bad wait until the 2020 elections are over. You ain’t seen nothin yet.

    Bloomberg has often failed, so stop giving him credit.

    The population of Virginia, just like the rest of America, is absolutely clueless.

    All they do is watch TV and keep up with sports.

    It doesn’t help that there are only two corrupt parties to choose from. Many of us stay home when those are the only choices.

The battle continues…CAN EVERYONE HERE REACH IN THEIR POCKETS AND KICK $5 TO FPC, 2AF, GOA, or yes even THE NRA!
    – we need to be getting together more often to strengthen gun culture, not only at the rage but definitely at the range. And yes we need out reach, especially to non shooters, and even the anti gun type

    I feel for the good folks who live in VA, those that bothered to vote anyway.

    Socialist/government worship is strong in NVA helped along by a strong component of TDS, this is an expected outcome from an off-off year election. The people who vote Democrat in these kind of elections are unlikely to ever support freedom since it requires more work on their part and they are generally quite lazy.

  37. avatar Phuck Yall says:

    The NRA spent almost as much money on Wayne’s wardrobe and clothing allowance ($274,000) as it did on holding onto Virginia ($300,000).

  38. avatar Randy Jones says:

    The NRA spent 300,000 dollars in Virginia, or about three dollars per member in Virginia. Bloomberg spent eight times that amount, but there are no records of how many members of his anti-gun campaign live there, their website claims they have ‘two-million members’ total, meaning they spent about $62 per estimated Virginia member.

    We also know they ran disinformation ads against the NRA, which seems to be unethical.

    Why do campaign laws allow for money from outside a state to be used for people running for state offices? National offices maybe, but state offices? Most States say a person running for office must have a residence there. Even that gets abused, people buy a home they don’t ever actually live in, think Senator Clinton. Why shouldn’t the same apply to campaign finances? Yet, the left claims the NRA controls politicians’ pockets. Not overly accurate.
