Politicians like AOC and media outlets like CNN and PBS have been pushing the narrative of "confederate flags" at rally.  Yet across the tens of thousands of photos and hundreds of video feeds not a single one has been found.  Which makes me now think that they believe the stars and stripes are a confederate flag.

I don't know - I see a Betsy Ross flag in there, and we all know that is racist.  Maybe they got confused between that and the Stars and Bars?

LOL.  Now on radio they are saying in their defense that there was one confedarate flag found in a picture.  But what they conveniently leave out is that it was brought by an antifa group from California to burn at the counter protest which didnt happen.  You cant make this stuff up.

Virginia sheriff: AOC's claims about gun rights rally 'not worthy of response'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's comments accusing Second Amendment supporters of "flying Confederate flags" during a peaceful rally in Richmond, Va. on Monday are "not worthy" of a response, Culpeper Country Sheriff Scott Jenkins said Tuesday.
...
Appearing on "Fox News @ Night" with host Shannon Bream and former Virginia Republican Congressman Dave Brat, Jenkins disputed Ocasio-Cortez's assertion -- echoing that of the liberal media -- that there were Confederate flags and said the police presence was significant.

"There were hundreds of officers from our state police as well as Capitol police there. To say that there wasn't a strong presence would be wrong," Jenkins told Bream.

"Her comments, I don't even believe they deserve any response at all. They're not worthy of it," he stated.

Gun control could push Virginia counties to join West Virginia

West Virginia lawmakers are scrambling to let rural Virginia counties join the Mountain State amid conservative voter anger with the new Democratic majority in Richmond and its push for gun control and other liberal initiatives.

In a building fight that echoes the Civil War-era split of the Old Dominion that created West Virginia in 1863, 40 of 100 West Virginia House delegates have signed on to legislation that would accept revolting Virginia counties and towns.
...
“We’re starting to get some phone calls from friends on the border who say these folks want to leave,” said West Virginia Del. Gary Howell.

Howell, a Republican, told Secrets that what started off as a long-shot effort “has turned into a real thing.”

He said that Virginia lawmakers and officials along the West Virginia border have cited the Democratic drive for gun control and desire to shift spending to the urban areas near Washington as reasons to leave for West Virginia.

It had to take real stones to do a protest in a Virginia still reeling from the Charlottesville debacle where say what you will about white power groups the city management and police assisted in creating a brawl, not preventing it. It is great to see that all sides were peaceful.

First the 2nd Amendment, then the 1st Amendment. Not surprising to any of us of course...

https://www.secondamendmentdaily.com/2020/01/virginia-democrats-file-bill-to-make-online-criticism-of-elected-officials-a-crime-were-not-kidding/

The author of that article has mis-read the bill.  The part about online harassment has been the law in Virginia for twenty years.  The new bill only adds a sentence about whch court has jurisdiction.

http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?001+ful+CHAP0849
Quote
CHAPTER 849
An Act to amend the Code of Virginia by adding in Article 7.1 of Chapter 5 of Title 18.2 a section numbered 18.2-152.7:1, relating to harassment by computer; penalty.
[H 1524]
Approved April 9, 2000

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. That the Code of Virginia is amended by adding in Article 7.1 of Chapter 5 of Title 18.2 a section numbered 18.2-152.7:1 as follows:

§ 18.2-152.7:1. Harassment by 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 guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Full text of the new bill is here: HOUSE BILL NO. 1627.  Italics indicate the proposed changes to existing law.

Never hurts to remind that Carolyn McCarthy thought a barrel shroud is a "shoulder thing that goes up".

West Virginia is serious.

West Virginia’s governor to Virginia counties: Leave your blue state and join West Virginia

As Virginia’s new Democratic majority ushers through a raft of liberal proposals on issues including gun control and abortion, West Virginia’s governor is making an unusual proposal to disgruntled Virginians: Break away.

Gov. Jim Justice (R) on Tuesday endorsed a plan for conservatives unhappy with the new direction of their state legislature to demand ballot referendums in their cities and counties this November, through which they could express their desire for their county to leave Virginia and join West Virginia instead.

Influential Democrat Senator now backing away from all firearm and magazine bans and raising legal age for gun ownership.   So those are now essentially off table in Senate.  Good lobbying effort by NRA.

https://shoredailynews.com/headlines/senator-lewis-comments-on-gun-issues/
SENATOR LEWIS COMMENTS ON GUN ISSUES

There is no Senate bill now regarding the banning of assault rifles. The Governor’s bill on this topic was introduced in the House of Delegates and is being carried by Delegate Mark Levine. As I stated publicly before the Session and as was reported in Eastern Shore news media I will not be supporting any type of ban legislation whether on a particular type of firearm or a particular type of magazine.  In addition Senator Howell has proposed SB581 which is very problematic and further highlights the cultural divide in our Commonwealth. That bill has an unintended consequence making it very difficult for our young people between the ages of fourteen and eighteen to have access to firearms for hunting and other purposes. Unless that legislation is amended in some significant way I will not be voting in favor of it. Senator Saslaw put in a bill which would raise the legal age for firearm purchases to twenty-one. As a general philosophical approach to legislation which seeks to increase the age threshold from eighteen to twenty-one I have a problem, since we allow eighteen year olds to vote and in all other respects be treated as adult members of society. I do not believe that we can pick and choose for which things they should be held accountable as adults. We should have had that discussion decades ago when we decided to treat eighteen year olds as full adults. Unless we want to have that larger discussion again, I will resist increasing the age to twenty-one.

So the coversation is quickly shifting from "keeping" arms to "bearing" them.

Virginia County Sees Surge In Concealed Carry Applications

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam isn’t just selling a lot of guns in Virginia these days. He’s also responsible for the increasing number of Virginians applying to get their concealed carry license as well. Fauquier County, which is in northern Virginia and an exurb of Washington, D.C. fifty miles away, has seen a huge increase in the number of residents applying for their concealed carry license in the past few weeks.

I wonder if this has something to do with the proposed legislation that would remove reciprocity with other State concealed carry permits ?

A Little Bit Of Good News For Virginia Gun Owners

We’re a little more than a week away from the crossover deadline in the Virginia legislature, and lawmakers are still hard at work in Richmond trying to infringe on the Second Amendment rights of residents. But as Dave Adams, legislative affairs director for Virginia Shooting Sports Association tells me on today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co., several anti-gun bills were actually set aside or defeated in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, and Governor Northam’s proposed gun, magazine, and suppressor ban appears to be in some serious trouble as well.
