West Virginia Legislature: Virginia Pro-Gun-Rights Counties Invited to Secede and Join WV

WEST VIRGINIA LAWMAKERS are pushing a resolution inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to become constituents of West Virginia.

AWR Hawkins reported that West Virginia lawmakers introduced a resolution, HCR8, which is inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to join the state of West Virginia.

This resolution alludes to 1863, the very year Republicans broke off from slave-owning Virginia and formed West Virginia.

At the time, the people of Western Virginia did not believe “the government at Richmond” represented their interests.

Now, another divide is emerging. But this time its concerns gun rights issues.

So far, 118 local governments in Virginia have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries.

West Virginia Delegates are using the resolution to declare that gun rights are on the chopping block in Virginia and that counties who choose to become a part of West Virginia will have their Second Amendment rights protected.

HCR 8 stated:

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitution.

Several Delegates such as “Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter and Linville” are sponsors of this legislation.

This resolution demands that a Special Session of state legislators plan “a special election to provide for the approval of the admission, or, the rejection of such admission, of such county or independent city.”

The Associated Press reported that Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam will announce a gun ban on January 20, 2020, when a peaceful pro-gun rally is set to take place.

Tensions are heating up in Virginia as many Second Amendment supporters believe their right to keep and bear arms in under grave danger thanks to demographic change which has led to a majority anti-gun-rights coalition of leftists, Jews, and other non-Whites in the Virginia General Assembly.

Many fear that the weapons and firearms accessories that law-abiding gun owners have traditionally owned could be threatened by new legislation which undermines this otherwise lawful ownership of firearms.

As a proud citizen of West Virginia I would welcome these 2nd Amendment supporters. Hope this could become a reality.

It is a shame that our RINO governor is a virtue-signalling cuck that makes Holohoax brainwashing mandatory for West Virginia DOC prison guard trainees and has agreed to keep accepting refugees.

Justice switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican. I don’t like his positions on immigration and refugees (invaders). Not only that, he is a fat, disgusting eyesore. Hopefully we can vote him out of office when the time comes. The good news is that only ten (10) refugees were resettled in W.V. in 2019. We are a mountainous state, very little flat land to build out on, and very little available housing for them. I have mixed emotions on Trump, but he has slowed down the refugee flood into the U.S. He needs to do more on the southern border. I am extremely concerned about House Resolution 728, recently introduced by three shabbos goy Republicans. This resolution will, if passed, make Judaism the defacto state religion in the U.S.… Read more »

This has been established already in FLorida . West Virginia churches , who have schools probably have a foundation for this already . The unconstitutional conception is consistent with every other anti-American law passed since Abraham Lincoln.
The practice will simply be codified and sanctified and the prison system shall be enhanced with a new generation of political prisoners. CHurches will be required to denounce and deliver addresses . Time to praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

Judas is our governor not Pontius Pilot.
