This week, Virginia’s Democrat attorney general, Mark Herring, revoked recognition of out-of-state concealed carry permits for half the nation– a whopping 25 states will no longer have their concealed carry permits recognized in the land that produced patriots like Washington, Jefferson and Madison.
According to Herring, the states that were previously recognized by Virginia do not meet the arbitrary criteria necessary for Virginia to recognize their concealed carry permits. Allegedly, the requirements to obtain the permits in these 25 states are too lax.
McAuliffe vetoed a number of pro-gun bills from the legislature this year and issued an executive order prohibiting concealed carry permit holders with their firearms in executive offices buildings all over the state.
Republican state legislators could strip Virginia Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe of his protective detail. Virginia Sen. Bill Carrico told The Herald Courier last Tuesday he plans to propose a budget amendment during the State Senate’s January Session that would defund the governor’s protective detail.
“A lot of the governor’s power is deferred to the General Assembly at that point and I’ll be getting with my colleagues to circumvent everything this governor has done on this point,” Carrico said. “I have a budget amendment that I’m looking at to take away his executive protection unit. If he’s so afraid of guns, then I’m not going to surround him with armed state policemen.”
Hallelujah and a big Amen for Carrico.
Finally someone who knows what common sense gun control really is.
Let’s pray McAuliffe is placed in the same situation he wishes for the rest of us; defenseless.
There’s nothing like putting the shoe on the other foot for a reality check.
