In recent weeks the state of Virginia has become the model for unconstitutional laws. A model with such boldness and rapid pace that other liberal states will surely follow as precedent. While it appears the federal government adheres to the wishes of legal firearm owners in America, Virginia’s state government completely ignores the voices of its citizens. And while the media distracts the population with President Trump’s impeachment, as if legislators have stopped legislating, and as if any pundit or viewer could change the outcome, the erosion of our Constitution is ongoing from the state level. This practice did not begin with the impeachment process. Nor did it begin in the state of Virginia. But, Virginia is undoubtedly the boldest state in its blatant disregard for the Constitution and every American that garners it as a guiding light to the rights of the people.
For this article I will focus on two of the most unconstitutional laws this nation has ever seen. One of which has been passed by the Virginia legislature, and another that brings us even closer to the Marxist nation that many left wingers are hell bent on flying us into. Which is why I such left wingers Commiecrats.
The first piece of legislation was introduced to the 2020 Virginia legislative session on January 16,2020, by Democrat Jeffrey M. Bourne, who represents House District 71. HB 1627. Threats and harassment of certain officials and prosperity; venue. On the surface, House Bill NO. 1627 seems to merely address threats of bodily injury to persons on school property and health care providers. Which is a good thing. It isn’t until you fully read the one page House Bill that the real objective becomes clear.
As it is with much of American legislation, the authors hide the ugly unconstitutional truths beneath sections that on the surface, are proposals most Americans find harmless and for the people. it is clearly stated at the top of HB 1627 that it is “A BILL to amend and reenact…the Code of Virginia, relating to threats and harassment of certain officials and property”. But, a full reading of the bill shows that it is in fact legislation to shade officials from public criticism.
As stated in section 18.2-152.7:1. Harassment bu computer, penalty. “If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, shall use a computer or computer network to communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act, he
shall be is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. A violation of this section may be prosecuted in the jurisdiction in which the communication was made or received or in the City of Richmond if the person subjected to the act is one of the following officials or employees of the Commonwealth: the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.” SOURCE
As you can see, those who disregard the rights of the people wish not to be recipients of criticism from those they disregard. This is evident by the use of some choice words, such as, “communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language”. Only in nations such as communist China is it illegal to voice criticism about officials. When looking at the timing of HB 1627 in connection with the unconstitutional anti gun laws and protests that followed in Virginia, one can only see true erosion of the peoples rights and voices.
The second piece of legislation was passed on January 22,2020. SB 240 Firearms; removal from persons posing substatntial risk of injury to himself, etc., penalties, was introduced by Democrat Senator George L. Barker who represents Senate District 39. SB 240 is nothing short of a Red Flag law. The following Summary As Introduced for SB 240 shows exactly how left wing laws are creeping closer to gun confiscation.
“Firearms; removal from persons posing substantial risk; penalties. Creates a procedure by which any attorney for the Commonwealth or any law-enforcement officer may apply to a general district court, circuit court, or juvenile and domestic relations district court judge or magistrate for an emergency substantial risk order to prohibit a person who poses a substantial risk of injury to himself or others from purchasing, possessing, or transporting a firearm. If an emergency substantial risk order is issued, a judge or magistrate may issue a search warrant to remove firearms from such person. An emergency substantial risk order shall expire on the fourteenth day following issuance of the order. The bill requires a court hearing in the circuit court for the jurisdiction where the order was issued within 14 days from issuance of an emergency substantial risk order to determine whether a substantial risk order should be issued. Seized firearms shall be retained by a law-enforcement agency for the duration of an emergency substantial risk order or a substantial risk order or, for a substantial risk order and with court approval, may be transferred to a third party 21 years of age or older chosen by the person from whom they were seized. The bill allows the complainant of the original warrant to file a motion for a hearing to extend the substantial risk order prior to its expiration. The court may extend the substantial risk order for a period not longer than 180 days. The bill provides that persons who are subject to a substantial risk order, until such order has been dissolved by a court, are guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor for purchasing, possessing, or transporting a firearm; are disqualified from having a concealed handgun permit; and may not be employed by a licensed firearms dealer. The bill also provides that a person who transfers a firearm to a person he knows has been served with a warrant or who is the subject of a substantial risk order is guilty of a Class 4 felony. The bill creates a computerized substantial risk order registry for the entry of orders issued pursuant to provisions in the bill. SOURCE
Those that have the ultimate goal of of progressing the people into a nation of less rights, less religion, and less individualism have gotten wise to the distractions of Washington and are using them to their benefit. Whether it be the Democrats with the majority in the House of Representatives with their eyes on the Senate, or state legislators, the obsession with the White House that Americans have had for years, is blinding to the undermining of our Constitution from the states. Woke should be more than a trendy word used to illuminate ones supposed political intelligence. It should be a reality!
