Earlier this year, Virginia took the first step toward fighting unconstitutional federal violations of the right to keep and bear arms in the Commonwealth when 15 cosponsors introduced a Second Amendment Preservation Act in the state House. While HB2340 didn’t gain traction in the legislature, it set stage for further action.
And there’s Good news! You can still battle the feds at the local level.
What was most lacking – beyond political courage in the Commonwealth – was strong grassroots organization behind the Second Amendment Preservation Act well in advance. Next time, Virginia legislators will be on notice for months in order to get this important legislation passed. With your work and dedication, liberty will win.
In order to take this to the next level and get a victory, your action is needed right now. Starting today, and all the way through the rest of the year, local governments around the state need to be pressed to take action – passing legislation in support of the right to keep and bear arms and refusing to cooperate with the feds locally. And at the same time, calling on the state legislature to do the same. When the state is blanketed with local communities willing to nullify violations of the Second Amendment, the state legislature will be on notice. Do your job, or else.
It’s going to take work to ensure that this is how things play out. Here’s what you can start doing right now.
1. Contact your local legislators – County, City, Town - and urge them to introduce an ordinance in support of the Second Amendment.
