    Virginia Democrats won an election. Gun owners are talking civil war

    Thousands of Virginia residents have shown up at meetings across the state to try to block Democrats from enacting new gun laws, with some gun rights supporters openly discussing violent resistance and civil war. The backlash to gun control in Virginia is being fueled by conspiracy theories and misinformation, and some observers worry that the escalating rhetoric may spark violence. When Democrats won control of Virginia’s state government for the first time in 26 years in November 2019, they pledged to pass a series of standard gun control laws, including universal background checks and bans on military-style “assault weapons” and high-capacity ammunition magazines. The agenda was no surprise: state Democrats had run for office on a platform of gun violence prevention, backed by funding from national gun control groups. But the pledge sparked a grassroots pro-gun movement whose size and intensity has surprised even longtime activists.

    This is as clear a case of good vs. evil as can be imagined.

    Libturds definition of 'high capacity magazines' is anything that holds more than 1 round.

    Shielding the Democrats' Quds Force

    This is the same Statehouse that wanted to give convicts the right to vote, so we know what design motivates their desire to leave Virginians defenseless against predatory subhumans.

    We handled cons in the first civil war against the odds. Maybe they will keep that in mind. ;)

    Anyone who actually believes they are going to take on this authoritarian power structure with their little guns is delusional.

    Why do you believe that?

    Or first, do you actually believe that, or is this just you trying to convince people they have no chance, and therefore there is no hope? In spite of all the historical evidence that shows otherwise?

    I'm suggesting the time window has passed given the empire's war tech and mass surveillance advances and that the strategy is nothing but empty hope. The gun is more a fetish symbol for the freedoms we sat and watched being incrementally reversed by concentrated capital over time. It's very american to yearn for some bloodbath rebirth, we're a culture based upon and founded upon violence. It's messianic thinking. Look at what we do to other nations, can't happen here? Militarist empires in decline are wont to redirect the violence projected abroad homeward as they decline.

    The police have been militarized. The citizenry is under constant corporate state surveillance with assistance from Israeli Intelligence, the Israelis knowing a thing or two about subjugating an uncooperative population. Both the military and law enforcement have been infiltrated by white nationalists/supremacists, those entities reporting this themselves. More and more americans are working for too little to live on as capital becomes evermore concentrated. More and more americans cannot afford healthcare. More and more of the public water supply is becoming contaminated; lead poisoning can take a community into dysfunctionalism for generations via retardation in children. All as an orchestrated anxiety worn public yearns to be walled in by authority.

    Well ain't you just a little Debbie Downer?:rolleyes:

    All this flexing by the government is a sign of their fear...... they know their time is coming, and they're trying to project an image of indomitable strength, to hold on to as much as they can for as long as they can.
    But the truth is, they're done..... and they know it. It's just a matter of time.
