The State of Virginia is going to find out how much anti-gun politicians really don’t like guns. Virginia’s Democratic Attorney General Mark Herring is going ahead with a plan for Virginia to cease recognizing concealed carry permits granted by any state. However, Conservatives in the Virginia State Legislature have something diabolical in store for the state’s governor.
Governor Terry McAuliffe enjoys protection from an armed security team. State Legislature Republicans are going to use a planned budget amendment to strip the Governor’s security detail of their weapons. Republicans say that if McAuliffe is so afraid of guns, he won’t mind making public appearances without the protection of guns. Maybe the Governor will have Herring reconsider his anti-Second Amendment plan.
Truth and Action reports:
If things go according to plan in Virginia, we’re going to see how much anti-gun politicians really hate guns once they’re no longer protected by them.
Jumping on the anti-Second Amendment bandwagon, Democratic Attorney General Mark Herring has moved forward with a plan for Virginia to cease recognizing concealed carry permits granted by the 25 different states that issue such permits. But conservatives in the state legislature have a trick up their sleeves.
According to Virginia Senator Bill Carrico, Republicans in the State Senate will be able to strip Governor Terry McAuliffe of the armed security team that protects him via a planned budget amendment that he will introduce in January.
“If he’s so afraid of guns, then I’m not going to surround him with armed state policemen,” Carrico stated. “One can only hope this makes McAuliffe reconsider his Attorney General’s decision.”
