    @Ken Anderson
    Brain-washed mindset, blind P.C. acceptance, and the easiest way out, IMO; blame the tool that inflicts harm, rather than it's user.

    My in-laws were vehemently against gun ownership, so much so, that seeing one of my pistols lying on a table caused venting of frustrated fear. I tried to explain that the firearm might lie there for a hundred years, and do nothing. They seemed to misunderstand the example.

    I have been reading about this for a while now, but it is hard to wrap my head around that this could actually be happening. Has anyone else read about this, and is this governor actually making these kinds of threats, and if so........why ?

    The *killed* part is a new one on me but he did say the rest of it.
    I guess the Virginia Militia combined with some other vets and organizations are marching on the State Capital this weekend. Added to that, several counties have already declared themselves to be gun sanctuaries.

    And just a note, the Virginia National Guard pretty much stated that they weren’t going to help the governor.

    The "government" now goes so far as to threaten "Obey, or die!".

    Wonder if this governor has thought much about dying?

    Things are getting pretty scary in Virginia. I fear it's a test case. If they can do it in Virginia, we'll see it in other states, like Maine, where Democrats have a majority.

    Population disarmed
    1911 Turkey 1.5 million murdered
    1929 Russia 20 million murdered
    1935 China 20 million murdered
    1938 Germany 6 million jews murdered
    1956 Cambodia 1 million murdered

    The left works tirelessly to disarm America Citizens
    When you disarm the population the government becomes the killers

    A Charlton Heston quote would be appropriate right about now.

    When politicians of the sort who have control of Virginia now are in power is the time you most need a weapon.

    Dictatorships are only successful if the population is disarmed

    The problem I see with the whole thing is not so much that the governor wants to confiscate the weapons, it’s how much he doesn’t mind stepping into a civi war.
    He’s what I call a checkers man as opposed to playing a game of chess. He isn’t thinking of anything other than getting to the other side so as to be kinged. Nothing else matters and there’s very little thought to his moves to get the crown so even the thought of losing isn’t apparent, just the crown.

    Bottom line is that it isn’t going to end well no matter how the board is set. Lives will be lost and as @Frank Sanoica ventured, one of them will probably be his own. If that rather vague prognostication of the man’s future does happen, it’s too bad he’ll be remembered as a martyr of sorts by the folks who voted him into office and then the feces will definitely strike the oscillator.

    It’s a no win situation unless he reverses his thinking which, is probably never going to happen.

    Keep in mind too, that this is the same governor who wants to be able to kill children after they are delivered if the parents don't want them.

    Makes me think that he and John Rogers (Alabama rep) are reading from the same book called: Idiots R Us.

    They are all given orders from the UN [new world order] that the populations have to be disarmed for their take over. It is in the UN mandate for disarming everyone except them.
