What the left and their media cheerleaders can’t control, they would denigrate and demonize. In much the same way as they savaged the Tea Party movement almost a decade ago, the push is now on to portray those who are resisting infringements on their Second Amendment guaranteed gun rights in Virginia and other states as dangerous, cultish paranoiacs.
[F]or all the chest pounding and whining over a hypothetical scenario where guns are confiscated from law-abiding citizens, these “sanctuary” communities for guns amount to little more than a symbolic stance.
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring said the resolutions wouldn’t hold water in a court of law.
“These resolutions, they are just part of an effort by the gun lobby to stoke fear,” Herring told Northern Virginia radio station WTOP last week. “When the General Assembly passes new gun safety laws, they will be enforced, and they’re going to be followed.”
New Mexico officials had a similar response. Tripp Stelnicki, a spokesman for the governor, told the AP in February that “commonsense firearm safety measures” would not infringe on New Mexicans’ constitutional rights.
“These resolutions mark an expression of opinion, and that’s fine,” Stelnicki told the AP. “State law will be followed.”
