Virginia Politicians Retaliate Against Second Amendment Sanctuaries
Virginia Dems are striking back at Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties, putting a real hurt on the Sheriff Department for trying to protect the rights of their neighbors. Governor Northam and his fellow Gun Grabbing enthusiasts have blocked a 3% raise proposal for the Sheriff Department and then had the gall to admit it was because they refused to back their aggressive Gun Control laws.
Republican Senator Bill Stanley proposed the raise for the Sheriff's Department and was approached by the State Senate Majority Leader Saslaw and told exactly why his proposal was denied by every Dem present.
Stanley posted about it on Facebook.
"Tonight (just now) on the Senate floor, I tried to amend the state budget to give all of our men and women of Virginia's Sheriffs' Departments a 3% raise for this year. It was defeated, with all democrats voting "no." When I went to get a vote count from the clerk, Majority Leader Dick Saslaw came up and said this to me: "Hey Stanley, you want to know why your sheriffs didn't get a raise? —because they came to our committees and said that they weren't going to enforce our laws." When I asked him which law was he talking about, he said "gun control".
I was shocked that the Democrats are now punishing our local Sheriff's Departments (by eliminating a pay raise for them), for the their choice to protect and defend our citizens' Second Amendment rights. Democrats want to restrict a citizen's right to protect themselves, but won't pay our sheriffs' deputies to protect Virginians. Hypocrisy has a name."
"In response, Saslaw admitted that Stanley is telling the truth about their exchange.
"He didn't lie ... I said it," Saslaw told WTVR-TV. "All I said was a lot of people are upset that these people come in and say they're not going to enforce our laws. That's all."
Ultimately, the state Senate approved only a one-time bonus of $200 for Virginia sheriff department employees, WTOP-TV reported. The state House, however, has approved a pay raise."
So now the State Government is snubbing the Sheriff's Department for protecting the Second Amendment. Aren't they supposed to be protecting the rights of their constituents? Seems like they have forgotten their place. Citizens of Virginia need to get out and vote next chance they get and remove some of these enemies of the people.
