As more and more Virginia counties pass resolutions refusing to enforce new gun laws Governor Northam is now threatening “consequences” against these 2nd amendment sanctuaries. From WTKR.com:
When asked by a reporter if local governments would face retaliation for declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, Northam responded, “There’s not going to be retaliation. That’s not what I’m about. I’m about making Virginia safer.”
Northam continued, “If we have constitutional laws on the books and law enforcement officers are not enforcing those laws on the books, then there are going to be consequences, but I’ll cross that bridge if and when we get to it.”
The Governor has not yet said what those consequences may be. He can call it whatever he wants, but it’s retaliation against more than 40 Virginia counties (with more added every day) that have declared themselves 2nd Amendment sanctuaries.
UPDATE: The left is now threatening prosecution and the National Guard if Sheriffs don’t enforce the new gun control laws, more here.
