ISRA Thursday Bulletin - December 5, 2019

President Barack Obama famously said, “Elections have consequences…” and nothing could make that clearer than the recent elections in Virginia.  We are now seeing what many of us have been saying for a long time, which is that Bloomberg, Soros and the rest of the many elitist billionaires are funding a nationwide movement to disarm law-abiding American citizens.  The combination of Bloomberg pouring millions into the Virginia elections, poor voter turnout, few strong Second Amendment candidates, and gun owner complacency has created a perfect storm against the Second Amendment in Virginia.

Virginia Democrats Prefile SB 64 – Could Outlaw Firearms Training

Published in Conservative Firing Line

Democrats are having a free-for-all in Virginia after their big win this fall. Another ridiculous bill has been prefiled to be printed on January 8, 2020. SB 64 outlaws firearms training, and could impact other group sports such as Krav Maga, Jiu-Jitsu, self-defense training, etc. The bill is designed to prohibit paramilitary activity (read that “citizen militias”). But as it stands, it would do a lot more. And turn law abiding Virginians into felons with a snap of the handcuffs.

The gun sanctuary movement keeps chugging along despite the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the anti-gun fanatics.  In Lake County, Florida, the Commission passed a resolution declaring Lake County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.  This is the first county in Florida to become a Gun Sanctuary County.  This resolution was a response to gun buy-back proposals from various democrat presidential candidates.
