(Breitbart) – Nearly two dozen counties in Virginia have declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status ahead of Democrats taking control of the state legislature in 2020.
Gun control Democrats won the night on November 5, 2019, securing enough seats to take control of the Virginia legislature. On November 8, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Gov. Ralph Northam (D) reacted to the victory by planning a war on guns.
This war includes the implementation of numerous gun controls that have been in place in states like California for decades and have proven impotent to hinder, much less prevent, high-profile firearm-based attacks.
On November 23, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Appomattox, Giles, and Dinwiddie Counties each declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status, but they are not the only ones. WSLS reports that the number of Second Amendment Sanctuary counties is now at 22.
The 19 counties in addition to Appomattox, Giles, and Dinwiddie are:
- King William
- New Kent
Flashback: CNN’s Chris Cuomo: 2nd Amendment Didn’t Mean ‘Individual Right’ To Bear Arms ‘Until Scalia Read It In’
CNN’s Chris Cuomo used a tweet Thursday to suggest the Second Amendment only protected a collective right until Supreme Justice Antonin Scalia read an “individual right” into it.
Do you remember what the 2a was created for? That there was no individual right contemplated until Scalia read it in? If you are an originalist about the constitution you have no basis for thinking you and not the state controls access. https://t.co/j5IAC3NTMZ

Notice the last sentence of Cuomo’s tweet, “If you are an originalist about the constitution you have no basis for thinking you and not the state control access.” He is saying because the Second Amendment only protects a collective right, in his opinion, then the true originalist position is to believe you only have guns if the state says so.
Cuomo did not say whether freedom of speech and religion (First Amendment), the freedom to pursue and possess private property (Third Amendment), and to be secure in our “persons, houses, papers, and effects” (Fourth Amendment) is collective as well. In other words, do we need state permission to speak freely, worship freely, do with our things as we would, and enjoy security in papers and effects?
