Victory for Defense: Virginia Court Partially Blocks Unconstitutional Gun Ban

A Lynchburg, Virginia judge has ruled that a new gun purchasing ban in the state violated a citizen's right to keep and bear arms, partially blocking the law from being enforced.

The new rule, enacted with a bevy of other strict anti-gun laws at the beginning of the month, effectively prohibited adults under age 21 from purchasing a handgun. The state already blocked adults between 18-20 from purchasing a firearm at a licensed gun store as required background checks were only offered to those 21 and older.

The new rule further implemented restriction on private sales, requiring purchasers to go through that same federal background check that prohibited adults under 21 from purchasing a gun. The plaintiffs in this Virginia case, Peter Elhert and Wyatt Lowman, contended that the new state restrictions violated their rights.

The laws, which have been hotly contended and drew protests of gun-owning Virginians to the state capitol in Richmond, went into effect on July 1. Lowman, who is 18, asserted that such restrictions forbade him from exercising his right to keep and bear arms, which is specifically protected in the constitution for the Commonwealth of Virginia. .......
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

One small step towards repealing Gov. Blackface's unconstitutional edicts.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God
