After The Huge Second Amendment Rally In Richmond Will Red Ralph Back Down? NO–He Will Double Down!

by Al Benson Jr.

Well, thanks be to God our prayers were answered. The gigantic Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Virginia was peaceful and went off without a hitch. Maybe when they saw the numbers of armed protesters Antifa decided it would be lots safer to back off and play at being no-shows for the day. They are lots more efficient at beating up on those who can’t resist than they are about facing honest opposition. So much for their “opposition” to fascism!

If ever you needed to see massive opposition to gun control, you saw it today in Richmond.

Will all that make any difference to Red Ralph and his socialist cadre in the legislature? Don’t kid yourselves! Today’s huge demonstration won’t make him and his socialist cohorts back down. It will make them double down! You have to understand one thing about socialists. They have an agenda and they fully intend to fulfil that agenda. If 99.9% of the  people are opposed to that agenda that makes no difference whatever. They will continue to push that agenda no matter what! This is where people misunderstand socialism. They think socialists can be persuaded just like normal people can. If you can just show up with a big enough crowd to make them think twice about what they want to do, then you can change their minds about doing it. That may work with normal people. It does not work with socialists! Socialists do not get into office to merely govern. They get into office to rule–and rule they will, no matter what or who opposes them.

When they get into power they couldn’t care less what the populace wants. They are not in power to do what the people want. They get into power to do what they want–and what they want is unfettered control over the people and they will enact whatever legislation they have to in order to maintain that control

Many years ago now, someone wrote a book called Gun Control Is People Control. It was a good book and the title was almost prophetic because that is exactly the way it works out. If you control the guns then you control the people that you took them away from. When you have all the guns you can pretty much do what you want and who can resist except someone with a death wish?

The managed media spent the day denigrating the size of the pro-Second Amendment crowd. They also rather cavalierly informed their readership that, even though many thousands of people turned up to protest gun control, the vast majority of Virginians really wanted gun control. If so, why didn’t they show up to protest what the Second Amendment folks were doing? I’m sorry, folks, when the managed media tells me the vast majority in Virginia want gun control, yet thousands upon thousands show up to protest gun control, you will pardon me if I harbor doubts about what the managed media is trying to peddle.

Gun control/confiscation is one of the main tenets of the socialist agenda. So anyone thinking that because all these folks came to protest gun control will change the minds of any of the socialists in Richmond is kidding themselves.

Looking at the situation as it is now it seems you all have two options in Virginia. You can actively work to elect a better legislature next November, which is a long way away yet, during which time you will probably be saddled with onerous gun control bills. Or you can work through the sheriffs in your counties to get them to refuse to comply with unconstitutional (both state and federal) laws. Encourage them to deputize as many deputies as needed to resist state aggression and/or work toward forming legitimate militias in their counties, complete with the proper training and procedures.

The only way Red Ralph will be encouraged to back down is if there is such massive non-compliance with his edicts at the county level that he cannot possibly deal with it all–kind of a Cloward/Piven strategy in reverse. There are laws on the books in some states that simply do not get complied with. Look at the marijuana laws in some states. Many of them are just ignored. It’s more bother trying to enforce them than to just let it go. And there are even some gun control laws in New York state that few gunowners pay attention to–and no one says all that much there. This is the only way you are going to make any headway with Red Ralph. The non-compliance rate for his unconstitutional gun control laws has got to be so high that he just can’t deal with it–and most of that will be up to the county sheriffs.

The only parts of Virginia where gun control is popular are the urban areas. The rest of the state wants nothing to do with it. If Red Ralph was going to honestly uphold the state constitution he took an oath  to uphold, he would be forced to jettison his gun control agenda, but, as a socialist, you know he can’t do that. He has got to disarm the citizens of Virginia in order for him to do to them what his socialist agenda demands of him. Otherwise, his handlers will come along before the next election and make sure some other socialist gets to run in his place.

When Is A “White Nationalist” Rally NOT a White Nationalist Rally, but Really a Pro-Second Amendment Rally?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

By this time, late on Sunday evening, most of you all have read the mainstream (and totally false) headlines about how tomorrow’s Lobby Day in Richmond, Virginia has suddenly, thanks to the lying media, morphed into a “white nationalist” rally.

Over the years I have been to lots of rallies and protests about various issues and, so, with a little experience with such things, I have to offer a comment here. A “white nationalist” rally and a pro-Second Amendment rally just ain’t the same animal. Oh, I realize the managed media and the managed politicians would like you to be dumb enough to lump the two together, but please do not be fooled by their balderdash–because that’s  just what it is.

An interesting article on for January 19th stated: “If it wasn’t already blatantly obvious,  Democrats and mainstream media reporters (but I repeat myself) are hoping for conflict and bloodshed at tomorrow’s Lobby Day in Richmond…Elected officials from Gov. Ralph (“Blackface”) Northam on down and their friends in the media are working around the clock to label Lobby Day as a ‘white nationalist’ rally and make gun owners and white nationalists synonymous in the eyes of the public.

The article quoted Ben Collins of NBC News as he labeled tomorrow’s rally as a “white nationalist” rally. You’d think, from all this white nationalist flak being tossed around that no one except white nationalists ever owned a firearm. What about black gun owners–or is the leftist media too racist to admit they exist? What about Hispanic gun owners? Don’t try to tell me there ain’t any. I know better.

Another article, this one on for January 18th observed:: “On Thursday, federal law enforcement officials arrested several white supremacists who, we are told, wanted to shoot up the Lobby Day rally in Virginia on Monday where 100,000 Second Amendment supporters will demonstrate. How fortuitous for the government. The arrests are giving Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and other opponents of gun rights a perfect excuse to portray all gun owners as mouth breathing racist hicks who can’t be trusted to carry guns anywhere.” Aren’t these arrests convenient, coming when they did? Convenient–or pre-planned?

And then there were Tom DeWeese’s comments, which also showed up yesterday. Tom DeWeese has been around long enough that when he says something you can probably take it to the bank. He said that he was in Richmond and had info from a reliable source that told him: “Antifa have rented seven buses to bring in their thugs to cause trouble.  The report says they will be wearing MAGA hats and wearing NRA garb. They will pretend to be pro gun people. Meanwhile others posing as Democrats holding anti-gun signs will stand on the side. The Antifa thugs, pretending to be pro-gun, will attack the sign holders. Making it look like the pro gun people have started the violence. This is the plan. If you are attending the rally be aware. Be very careful.”

So the fix would appear to be in for Lobby Day to make it look like a “white supremacist” rally, which it is not! Law abiding gun owners are to be deliberately smeared by a lying news media and lying politicians in order to give them and the Second Amendment a black eye in the view of the general public.

Pray that the Lord will not allow the rabid left to pull off this Draconian stunt and pray for the safety of the honest Second Amendment advocates there. As for the leftists there, I pray the Lord will allow them to fall into the ditch they are busily digging for others.

“The War Of Northam Aggression”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The title of this article is not original with me. Someone sent it to me as part of something they wrote about what is going on in Virginia and I felt it was so appropriate I couldn’t pass up using it. Whoever coined it originally obviously had a sense of humor as well as a grasp of what’s happening in Virginia. I give them credit for expressing it the way they did. It fits actual events.

Events seem to be shaping up so that Lobby Day in Richmond next Monday is going to be a real nightmare–and naturally it will play out so that those folks who are concerned about “the War of Northam Aggression” on their legitimate firearms will get blamed for that. That seems to be the way the script will work out if the powers that be have their way. At this point, probably only the Lord can  intervene to change that outcome–and we know He is able.

Why do I say it will be a nightmare? A couple reasons. This morning someone sent me a copy of an article off for January 16th by Alex Parker. The title of the article is Say What? Antifa is Set to Protest Alongside 2nd Amendment Advocates in What is Sure to Be a Giant Mess.

The articles notes, in part, “:In a surreal turn, the apparently-unknowingly pro-fascism group will be hitting Virginia’s capital Monday to rally alongside Second Amendment advocates in response to the state’s clampdown on gun rights.” When I read that, my first thought was–it smells! After going and doing some other things and then coming back and re-reading the article, I still think it smells. I can’t see anything good in that situation for honest Second Amendment advocates. Lumping them together with Antifa, as is sure to happen as though it was planned that way, will not help their cause, which is a righteous cause. It will only hurt their cause–and I think that is the whole idea.

What if Antifa decides to act up and cause a big fuss at Lobby Day? You know who the media will blame for that and it won’t be Antifa. It will be the Second Amendment folks who will get the blame and they will be tarred with the “extremist” brush. I think that’s what Antifa will be there for.

Someone also sent me this from which was a brief video, the title of which was Jan 16, 2020 Call Out for Crisis Actor in Virginia..As GOV Declares State of Emergency. You really have to wonder what that one is all about–and it doesn’t take too much imagination to figure it out. Another false flag in the making? Again, to make the Second Amendment folks look bad.

You have to realize that, for Northam and his crowd in Richmond to even begin to look reasonable you have to demonize the good Second Amendment folks and I think that is what all of this is all about.

The prepper, Daisy Luther, had an article on for January 17th where she quoted a source that said: “So Virginia introduces a bundle of radical laws to destroy 2A rights, militias, sale transfer and registration bills, and the people of Virginia say no, and we’re going to vote you all out next term. Virginia government responds by introducing a bill to eliminate voter ID.  Virginia says we’re not going to wait, we’ll petition your removal from office and gets almost a 3rd of the 240K signatures to remove the governor and starts petitions to remove delegates. Virginia government responds by introducing a bill to raise the amount of signatures from 10% of the prevailing vote, to 25%. Folks, this is a textbook example of tyranny.  ‘We’re the government, and we’ll do anything we want, whether you like it or not. We won’t let you vote us out, we won’t let you remove us from office…And if you can’t possess the weapons that a militia would need to force us out, of office, then there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.”  Are you beginning to get the picture now???

An article from stated: “The Democrats are afraid of the voters and want to portray this peaceful assembly (at Lobby Day) of law-abiding gun owners in the worst possible way. They would love for it to degenerate to ‘violence, rioting, and insurrection’ in order to smear gun owners. Has the Democrat leadership actually invited violent groups to attend for the purpose  of disrupting our peaceful assembly?” That’s a very good question. I doubt if anyone would get an honest answer out of the Democrat leadership in Richmond, but the question still needs to be asked.

And, some penetrating commentary from Pastor Chuck Baldwin on where he says: “Make no mistake about it: This has the potential to be a Lexington and Concord redux…This is happening in the land of Washington and Jefferson–the land of Lee and Jackson…This oncoming Monday, January 20th (the day in between the birthdays of Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. ‘Stonewall’ Jackson, by the way), 100,000 Virginians are expected to descend on the Virginia legislature in Richmond to protest the gun confiscation acts–acts that can only be described as acts of war against the people of that state.”

Then, Pastor Baldwin askes an interesting question–one I have thought about myself. He says “Speaking of Donald Trump, has anyone noticed that this president who keeps telling us how much he supports the Second Amendment  has thus far said absolutely NOTHING in defense of the brave men and women of Virginia who are right now fighting for the right of every American to keep and bear arms? Not a peep! Not a tweet!”

I think Pastor Baldwin asks a legitimate question here. Why nothing from Mr. Trump on this hot button issue? I know he is all tied up with the impeachment imbroglio, but still, a few words of encouragement for the good folks in Virginia for trying to preserve the Second Amendment in their state would surely not be out of line for him. His silence on this very important issue does make me wonder.

There is a lot going on here that we don’t see or grasp–and I have a feeling that most of that is not good and that the Second Amendment and those of us who support it, are being sold out at the highest levels of government–be that in Richmond or Washington!

Red Ralph Seeking To Snuff Out Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

There was a Virginia State Police officer that telephoned into just this week and told them that “Obama was behind Red Ralph’s anti-gun “emergency” that is going on right now. Most folks who follow this kind of thing have noted that Obama did not just “go quietly into the night” when his presidential term expired. He was quite active in promoting anti-Trump activity from his new digs hardly a stone’s throw from the White House. Just because you haven’t heard anything from him of late doesn’t mean he is not active–in fact it may well mean he is active.

A former Navy Seal, Ben Smith, recalled that, when Obama was in office that: “Going back to the beginning of this administration, I’ve had friends within the community talking about how they were brought in and questioned with people from more toward the top side and the questioning…where it was pointing was do you feel comfortable disarming American citizens,” Obama was big into this sort of thing when he was in power. With all the Obama appointees still in government positions, there might be some folk who question whether he might not still be in power.

An article on by Cam Edwards, for January 16, 2020 observed that: “Anti-gun politicians and gun control activists are busily crafting a narrative that Monday’s Lobby Day at the state capitol  is going to be a disaster of epic proportions; a rampaging mob of militia members, white supremacists, and ‘gun extremists’ intent on starting the Second Civil War or at least another Charlottesville.” This is the hyperbole you learn to expect from the Left–a total smearing of any and all who dare to disagree with their radical agenda.

Mr. Edwards also notes that “The real weight of the (Second Amendment Sanctuary) movement will come from the commonwealth’s attorneys and county sheriffs who use their discretion to not enforce unconstitutional gun laws. And yes, even in Virginia, law enforcement has the discretion to not enforce laws…Governor Northam himself claims there have been credible, though unspecified threats that require him to ban guns from the capitol grounds, though a spokesperson for the Capitol Police told USA Today that there’s no resemblance between Lobby Day and what happened in Charlottesville in August of 2018.” However, Northam would love to try to make that connection because it would help to portray all law-abiding gun owners as kooks and extremists, which would fit in perfectly with his agenda.

Cam Edwards notes further that: “I’ve watched the Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement explode across the state of Virginia over the past two months, and I know that the tens of thousands of people who’ve peacefully turned out for their local supervisors meetings aren’t going to suddenly turn into a rampaging mob when they show up at the state capitol on Monday.” That’s not to say that the feds or some other entity won’t  salt the crowd with a few agent provocateurs to act up to make all legitimate gun owners look bad. And if such should happen, you just know what the media will focus on. It won’t be the law-abiding gun owners, it will be that handful that has been sent in to make the honest gun owners look bad. And if you think the media doesn’t know the difference then you haven’t been paying attention.

Edwards already knows the plan. He says: “Gun control advocates and anti-gun politicians like Ralph Northam are doing everything they can to tamp down attendance and make it seem like a gathering of nutjobs will be taking place.” That’s exactly what the anti-gun crowd will be doing.

But Edwards concludes his article on little different beat. He says: “They know that this year’  Lobby Day isn’t the end of a movement, though it may be the culmination of the dozens of meetings where thousands of us have shown up to declare our support for our  cities, towns, and counties becoming Second Amendment Sanctuaries. It might be the end of a chapter, but we’re still at the beginning of this story. We still have to see what bills pass out of the legislature, what bills are signed by Gov. Northam, what bills get challenged in court, and what bills go into effect on July 1st. Then, and only then, will we see how these  Second Amendment Sanctuaries respond to any unconstitutional laws placed on the books.” In other words, it ain’t over ’til its over!

And on the same note, I heard just today that the Gun Owners of America and the Virginia Citizens Defense League have filed a joint court suit challenging what Northam is doing, claiming he is violating both the First and Second Amendments with his actions to present. And that happy note is a good place to close this article.

Gun Control Is A Tool Of Socialism

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

If you look, over the years, at those who have  promoted gun control, you find that the vast majority of them, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and a vast host of others, were socialists or communists of one stripe or another. Socialists usually have agendas that are not always wildly popular with those living under their regimes and so gun control is one way of “protecting lives” in such countries–socialist lives, nobody else’s because socialists don’t care about any lives but their own.

That being the case, what we see now going on in Virginia is running true to socialist form. You have a newly elected socialist regime there that, in order to be able to fulfil its socialist agenda, feels the population at large would be better off without the dubious benefit of firearms to protect themselves from the gentle ministrations of the newly elected socialists. The socialists feel they are much safer if you are not armed!

An article by Richard W. Rahn on for Jan 13th contains some insightful commentary on this.  Rahn observed: “The governor and the Democratic legislators in Virginia are proposing restrictive gun laws, which would make it much more difficult for law-abiding Virginians to defend themselves, as well as taking away some of their basic liberty. The Democrats are doing this, claiming it will save lives (which is rather ironic coming from a governor who endorsed infanticide–‘as long as the infants are made comfortable’–for newborn babies if the mother so decides). Note, the anti-gun mafia ignores all of the lives that are saved by people being able to protect themselves by having guns. (The Texas church shooting a couple weeks ago being exhibit one. Perhaps several dozen lives were saved by the fact that some members of the congregation had legal guns and were immediately able to put a stop to the madman.) There is considerable evidence that more guns in the hands of the law-abiding save, rather than cost lives..”

Rahn continued: “Almost all mass homicides are committed by mentally ill people or terrorists…Again, terrorists and the homicidal mentally ill are a real problem, and their behavior is not going to change because some physical objects they can use to kill people are made illegal.”

Rahn then notes something people should reflect on, and not enough do. He says: “It is no coincidence that many anti-gun zealots are also big government types, including socialists, who get their highs from taking the property and liberty of others…If Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam…seems to have deliberately misdiagnosed the problem and prefers to focus on the fake solution of gun restrictions which reduces the ability of the people to protect themselves, rather than dealing with the mentally ill and terrorists.”

Spending some time on the internet this afternoon, I came across people who couldn’t seem to figure out why Northam was doing what he was doing–and didn’t he realize what a burden he was putting on the folks in Virginia? Reading a few of their naïve comments is the kind of thing that makes you start talking to yourself.

I thought to myself “Come on folks, get real. Of course he realizes what he is doing to the people in Virginia. Do you really think he cares? I’ve got a revelation for you all. He couldn’t care less what he’s doing to folks in Virginia. If he manages to leave them all defenseless–so what? Since most of them are not socialists they are just not important! All he needs them for is the tax money he can siphon out of them and to make sure they all put their kids in Virginia’s public schools so they can be socialized beyond recognition. Other than that they are useless to Northam. And his socialist state legislature is already on record regarding how little they think of the voters in Virginia. According to some in the legislature, the voters are all “gun nuts” or crazy, or like “little kids.” Do you honestly think that legislators with these kinds of sentiments give a tinker’s damn about the ordinary citizens of Virginia? Let me clue you in–they don’t! You are nothing to them but sheep to be sheared–and the first thing you are to be “sheared” of is your ability to defend yourselves.

So many foolish people harbor the grave misconception that, socialism, somehow, is a caring and compassionate system. Their common sense has been tampered with. Socialism is a system that exploits people, all the while telling them how much it cares about them. Talk to people from socialist and communist countries as I have and you will soon realize that socialism is nothing more than a way to exploit those that live under it. It is an anti-Christ system that needs to be resisted and exposed for the total fraud it really is.


The Sleeping Giant Is Waking Up In North Carolina

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Although this article will be mostly about North Carolina, I came across a brief article on Zero Hedge just before I started on this. According to Zero Hedge they had “an active shooter situation” near a school in Henrico County, Virginia this morning. There was no more information than that, and I must admit, with my ever suspicious mind, the first thought that came to me was is this a false flag event in Virginia only a week before Lobbying Day there to get folks in Virginia more attuned to embrace some form of gun control there? I can’t say that for sure, but the thought occurred to me. Maybe it will to other folks too.

And now, on to North Carolina.

There was an article by Glenn Counts on for January 5th about Lincoln County, North Carolina county commissioners voting “to take gun laws into their own hands and become a 2nd Amendment sanctuary, which means county officials would refuse to enforce any new restrictions on gun ownership.” The vote was unanimous.

There was one dissenting voice, however, and that voice was that of Vice Chairman Richard Permeter, who said “I generally oppose meaningless resolutions.” The article noted that over 3,000 people had signed a petition that supported the resolution. Permeter commented that “I can’t ignore the fact that these are intelligent people who have good opinions and sometimes if I’m the odd man out, I have to ask, ‘Why?'”

All I can say here is that if Mr. Permeter has to ask why over 3,000 people in his county signed a petition to become a Second Amendment Sanctuary County in view of the recent and sustained attacks on the Second Amendment, then he just hasn’t been paying attention. Why indeed!

Then, there was the article  in The Charlotte Observer for January 8th, which was obviously biased, but then, what else is new? The article said: “Three North Carolina counties declared themselves supporters of gun rights this week, adding to the list of so-called Second Amendment sanctuaries across the state and the country.” Note the subtle dig here–“so-called Second Amendment sanctuaries.”

The article continued: “Commissioners in Lincoln, Surry and Wilkes counties in Western North Carolina voted to defend gun ownership, according to news reports and government documents. Local government leaders across the country have passed Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions. Many times the moves are symbolic and show that officials plan to defy state or federal efforts to restrict gun rights,  McClatchy newspapers have reported.”

These votes came this week. Cherokee and Rutherford counties became Second Amendment Sanctuary counties back in 2019. The article noted: “In Surry County, northwest of Winston-Salem, officials voted 5-0 to refuse  to use government resources to take guns away from people who follow the law, its resolution shows. And to the west, another unanimous vote means the Wilkes County government is ‘opposing any efforts’ to restrict gun rights, according to leaders. Nearby, other communities are eyeing similar resolutions.”

And so the trend continues across the country. Law-abiding gun owners are beginning to wake up and realize that the only threat to their Second Amendment rights does not come from the federal government, though that threat is always there, but that they now have a serious problem with the governments in many of their states capitols who are every bit as anxious to disarm them as ATF in Washington is. Would be socialist dictators exist in every state capitol across the country and when they seek to undermine the Bill of Rights they need to be resisted! When they do that, they are trying to overthrow the law of the land, and as such, they constitute themselves as usurpers and lawbreakers!

Governments are not God, though many of them would like to be or think they are. The people in our state capitols are supposed to be there to serve the best interests of those that elected them. They seem, in the main, to have forgotten that and they now seem to think we the people exist to serve their best interests, and heaven help us if we dare to disobey their edicts!  May the Lord reveal to them their folly–even if they don’t want to see it! It is my fond hope He may use this Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement to do some of that, and in the process, humble some of these would be socialist dictators to the point they realize that God is still in control and that they ain’t Him and never will be, no matter how much they want to be.


Second Amendment Under Attack–One state at a time

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Well, the Virginia legislature has voted to make the state Capitol in Richmond a gun free zone, at least that seems to be the plan up to this point. It’s only eight days away from Lobbying Day in Richmond on January 20th and lots of pro-Second Amendment folks are expected to turn up to legally register their complaints about what the legislature is trying to do to gun owners, which is to make most of them criminals for possessing anything more than an air rifle. Admittedly, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but the way things are going in Virginia, you almost have to wonder when they will start outlawing those air rifles. Seems like there are anti-gun bills out there now to outlaw just about everything else!

You Civil War re-enactors in Virginia that possess Civil War era weapons, how long will it be before they decide to come after your guns? Think that won’t happen? Maybe you better think again.

What happens in Virginia may well be a portent as to where the rest of the country, or at least a good part of it, may be headed.

As much as I hate to say it, there are politicians here in the South, and in the West, that would dearly love to disarm all of us. They realize they can’t accomplish their heart-felt desire to socialize the country until they have successfully neutered the Second Amendment. That is really what all of this stuff in various states is  all about–eventually putting to death the Second Amendment under the noble-sounding guise of “states rights.” Those people really hate the rights of the states to be self-governing but they love the “rights” of the states if they can use that argument as a plan to disarm us. If they manage to do that, then the “rights” of the states won’t be worth a flip anyway because, without arms, the states won’t have any “rights” to defend. They will have been removed by our “friends” in our state capitols and in Washington, you know, those people that are so very concerned about our welfare (as well as our ability to defend ourselves from them).

I have heard, recently, about some in Washington who have been telling us that the Second Amendment is really outdated anyway. In most cases these are the same worthies that are telling us that the Electoral College is antiquated and should be done away with. They must really think we are all as stupid as they wish we were. Do away with the Electoral College and about three Democratic controlled states would decide future presidents almost for perpetuity. With out public school “educations” we are not supposed to be able to perceive that little fact.

You almost wonder, with the situation in Virginia as it is, if some false flag situation will be scheduled to take place there in the next couple weeks or so to show the world that Virginia really needs protection from all those “gun nuts” that reside there. I do pray such will not happen but if it does, I will not be greatly surprised.

Red Ralph and his socialist state legislature may have some friends and supporters on the Left that may figure this is just what is needed to help cement all those new gun control bills firmly into law. And this is the sort of thing the Leftists are famous for. Look at how many of them we had under the Obama administration that were used to promote gun control. And a goodly number of those working through the Trump administration are still Obama appointees or supporters. Trump seems oddly ambivalent in this area. For instance, John Brennan still has his security clearance, which should have disappeared long ago but doesn’t seem to have, so you do have to wonder.
