As John avers in his excellent review below, the Virginia kerfuffle will be much ado about nothing in January 2020. Non-compliance with existing law is legion in the inland West of the USSA and even the Sovietized states like CT and NY have seen very little compliance with pants-wetting weapons prohibition laws and ordnances.
The real fight will be mass registration if no grandfathering is offered, that will be an undiscovered country. All thinking humans know that weapons registration is the necessary step to confiscation so it will be fascinating to see how forced registration of cosmetically offensive long guns in concert with an absence of grandfathering will pan out. Comrade-Governor Ralph Wescottovich Northam appears to be taking one of the bolder steps in weapons prohibition that even Calizuela has not tried. I will stand corrected if a reader could name a state that has required registration of long guns with no grandfathering, That is the flashpoint.
The 2A is worth the paper it’s printed on. The 2A is a sham to protect weapons ownership. It has no teeth whatsoever. If it did, how could the 1934 NFA, 1938 FFA, the decision in US v. Miller in 1939, 1968 GCA, Nixon’s pogrom against handguns, the 1986 FOPA, Bushevik I’s ban on foreign cosmetically offensive weapons in 1989, the NICs, the AWB all the way to the conservative zombie Scalia’s Leninist bromide about “dangerous and unusual weapons” be protection of private weapons ownership? On and on and on.
And always keep in mind this is a communist war on private weapons ownership in America; the vision of the government supremacists is total monopoly on long gun violence. The Federal government and its state subsidiary apparatchiks will continue to keep the weapons industry humming in the USSA to support it legions of coproaches and equip the armed forces in their perennial pyrrhic defeats planet-wide. The American imperial project has never had an interest in victory; the constant war is a sophisticated money-laundering operation for the military industrial complex in concert with a national government penchant for strategic deficit disorder hence the trillions spent on weapons systems that don’t work, cost too much or are an operational anachronism once fielded.
Virginia. The cradle of classical republican virtue and breadbasket of American enlightened liberalism. It is the alleged start of the Party in 2020. This remains to be seen.
The main problem confronting ‘Murkan-Spartan warriors is the current acceptance of the existing gun control regulatory superstructures in place already by nearly all. I’m talking about the Federal Firearms Licenses, background checks, 4473’s, NFA registry and the myriad of laws and regulations surrounding it. Great, you hold onto your grandfathered rifle. You don’t register it. But you also can’t buy anymore to outfit your children, neighbors or new “group members.” The legal penalties of riding around with an unregistered weapon for their “truck gun” will probably outweigh the cost of not having it. Training with your unregistered weapon at public shooting ranges will become risky. 2a sanctuaries, just like Oathkeepers, effectively enshrine the current draconian restrictions and thousands of gun laws as being “constitutional” and in compliance with freedom. It’s a no win.
When the guns do get taken while you get pulled over on a traffic stop and they find your illegal, unregistered, truck gun, the confiscator won’t be speaking Russian or wearing a blue helmet. The blue helmet analogy profited by the Lumpen-Patriotariat in my view is nothing but a way to de-personalize the actual enforcers of the laws they claim they will break, and keep their fantasy alive.
