Richmond, VA—We aren’t alarmists. We’re big fans of making our politicians fear our power at the ballot box. We like the tactics where legislators are left begging for mercy after unceasing public humiliation, phone calls, and emails have made their lives a nightmare and removed all political cover for their yellow-bellied lying.
But you don’t have to be an alarmist to read between the lines of this new bill that has already been pre-filed in Virginia. The bill in question will be quoted in its entirety below. In essence, this bill clarifies and expands the current law in Virginia defining what constitutes illegal paramilitary activity.
The Bill In Question:
SENATE BILL NO. 64
Offered January 8, 2020
Prefiled November 21, 2019
A BILL to amend and reenact § 18.2-433.2 of the Code of Virginia, relating to paramilitary activities; penalty.
Referred to Committee for Courts of Justice
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:
- That § 18.2-433.2 of the Code of Virginia is amended and reenacted as follows:
- 18.2-433.2. Paramilitary activity prohibited; penalty.
A person shall be is guilty of unlawful paramilitary activity, punishable as a Class 5 felony if he:
- Teaches or demonstrates to any other person the use, application, or making of any firearm, explosive, or incendiary device, or technique capable of causing injury or death to persons, knowing or having reason to know or intending that such training will be employed for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder; or
- Assembles with one or more persons for the purpose of training with, practicing with, or being instructed in the use of any firearm, explosive, or incendiary device, or technique capable of causing injury or death to persons, intending to employ such training for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder; or
- 3. Assembles with one or more persons with the intent of intimidating any person or group of persons by drilling, parading, or marching with any firearm, any explosive or incendiary device, or any components or combination thereof.
- That the provisions of this act may result in a net increase in periods of imprisonment or commitment. Pursuant to § 30-19.1:4 of the Code of Virginia, the estimated amount of the necessary appropriation cannot be determined for periods of imprisonment in state adult correctional facilities; therefore, Chapter 854 of the Acts of Assembly of 2019 requires the Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission to assign a minimum fiscal impact of $50,000. Pursuant to § 30-19.1:4 of the Code of Virginia, the estimated amount of the necessary appropriation cannot be determined for periods of commitment to the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice.
Assembling to Object to Tyranny is Now Illegal
Folks. If you decide to go to the capital or to a county board of supervisors meeting, or to a pro-gun rally with your guns, you would be committing a Class 5 felony in Virginia. Those gun rallies you might have attended in your own State? Illegal in Virginia. The 2,000 citizens who gathered in Virginia’s Capital just this week to demand that their gun rights be left intact? All of them could be arrested if this bill gets passed in January.
This is why we must fight NOW! Before we’re looking down the barrel of some of the worst gun laws this country has ever seen. Or before just getting together to make our voices heard is illegal. Before teaching a friend how to carry or shoot a gun is a crime if they can claim you taught them for the day the SHTF.
They threaten military action against citizens, but if the citizens so much as gather together while armed to object, they might be arrested and charged with a felony.
- This makes our blood boil.
