Virginia’s Democrat Attorney General announced on Tuesday that the state will no longer honor reciprocal agreements for conceal carry that have been in place with 25 other states.
Gun Control Maneuvers
The Democrat Attorney General, Mark R. Herring, is doing this to avoid going through the Republican controlled legislature. Taking a page out of Obama’s evil playbook, he has said his move would prevent people who are “dangerous or irresponsible from carrying a concealed handgun.”
Actually, it prevents law-abiding citizens from coming to Virginia. Not to mention destruction of the 2nd Amendment. And Republicans are not happy.
“Unfortunately, I have little doubt as to his true motivations. Mark Herring consistently seeks to interpret and apply the law of the commonwealth through the lens of his own personal, political opinions. He is damaging the integrity of the office he holds.” Virginia House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford)
And from Mr. Herring’s opponent in the 2017 election:
“This is another Washington-style overreach from a nakedly partisan attorney general. Instead of doing the job he was elected to do, Mark Herring continues to put the political goals of his liberal supporters ahead of sound legal judgment.” Robert B. Bell III (R-Albemarle), former state prosecutor
Second Amendment Under Attack
Herring has severed reciprocal agreements with any state whose CCW laws are what he terms “weaker” than Virginia law. Those states include Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
A few of those states will now no longer recognize Virginia CCW permits, because their regulations require mutual reciprocation. Those states are: Florida, Louisiana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Wyoming.
We are in a war for the 2nd Amendment in America. Virginia’s requirements for a permit include 20 conditions that must be met. A nonresident permit may still be obtained, but let’s see if they do the same thing that Washington D.C. did for the permit process – not give them to many people.
Mark Herring has often unilaterally decided he can do things- like not enforce something he feels is “unconstitutional.” His blatantly liberal agenda is a slap in the face to the true Constitutional process.
