  1. I can’t see this surviving Supreme Court scrutiny…

    “Well-regulated” pretty much extends to cover training the militia, which is all able-bodied men of military age. So, I think this is overreach.

        • Yes , they took the fine out of your tax refund. so yeah lots of people paid it. A friend of mine paid it because it was cheaper than buying insurance. Its not still in effect, that is one of the things the GOP controlled congress and Trump actually did while they had power, They ended the obamacare mandate. though they didn’t manage to repeal obamacare. thanks to AMERICAN HERO johnny mccain being the no vote that kept it from happening. thanks be to God he is finally dead

  2. Thank you for the information. I do pray that our US Constitution is strong enough to stand up against the attacks on the ” right to assemble” and the “right to bear arms”.

  3. 1) you have a right to free assembly
    2) you have the right to keep and bear arms
    3) so they want no firearms safety training…that tells me they plan to eventually ban all firearms

    i realize if this were to pass it will be challenged, but what will happen in the years it takes to get to the SCOTUS?

    Virginians, when tyranny becomes law, you have a responsibility to defend freedom..not in the voting booth, not in the courts, but in the streets

  4. The whole concept of the 2nd Amendment is to provide the security of a free state. In order to provide that security, a well-regulated Militia is needed. In order to have a well-regulated Militia, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    When it speaks of a ‘free state’, it’s referencing to a Republic in which I refer you to Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution where it tells us that the United States will guarantee to every State in the Union a Republican form of Government. It’s not referencing the Republican party as they were formed in 1854 by the anti-slavery Whigs. The term well-regulated is not referencing any regulation by Congress. It means a well-trained, well-armed and a well-organized Militia.

    Even if no 2nd Amendment were ever written, Congress would still have no constitutional authority to implement firearm regulations. The only other place the Constitution speaks of weapons is in Article 1 Section 8 Clause 16 where it states that Congress shall arm and organize the Militia of the several States; not disarm them and create an unorganized Militia.

    This is where we look at the 10th Amendment. Any power not given to the government by the Constitution is reserved to the States respectively or to the People.

    In Article 2 Section 2 Clause 1 of the Constitution, the President has the constitutional authority to call forth the Armed Forces and the Militia of the several States in defense of the nation. So gun laws even impede on the President to do his job. Even Trump is guilty of this as he stated to take the guns first then give due process and he also wants to implement red flag laws. So he wants to impede on his own job as well.

    When politicians implement any firearm regulations, they are violating their oath of office and it is a federal crime to violate your oath under Title 5 US Code § 7311. Moreover it is Treason. Article 1 Section 6 tells us that we can’t arrest or question these politicians when they’re going to or coming from either House, during a speech or a debate unless it’s Treason, a felony or breach of peace. So what it a felony?

    Under Article 3 Section 3 Clause 1 it tells us that Treason is levying war against them. Who are ‘them’? That would be We the People. So when politicians want to take firearms away from We the People, not only do they not have constitutional authority in doing so, they are committing a federal crime and it is Treason.

  5. Here’s one Californian (Among many) who is deeply saddened to see the great State of Virginia following the same totalitarian path that California has been on since it became a one party State.

  6. Have you ever heard of anyone paying that fine?

    Now this is the problem. Americans like YOU aren’t paying attention. OF COURSE PEOPLE PAID THE FINE.

    • Wait, the guy who knows how to avoid paying the fine is the guy who’s not paying attention? Nobody wanted Obamacare. The voters in Massachusetts (!) sent a Republican (!) to the Senate to stop it. But Nancy Pelosi and her team passed the bill, and it turned out that what was in it was a fine-not-a-fine-but-a-tax that had a loophole that you could drive a semi through. It’s time to stop treating the federal government like we owe them good faith. If there are gibs, take them. And for the sake of everything to the right of Trotsky, do NOT pay taxes or fines that you don’t have to.

      Wherever Bart Stupak is, I hope he’s happy.

      Whatever. It’s not 2010 anymore.
