    Virginia sheriff promises to “deputize thousands” if necessary to protect their “right to own firearms”

    The sheriff of Culpeper County, Virginia deserves the praise of every American who holds the Second Amendment near and dear to their hearts. In the wake of numerous gun control proposals from incoming Democrat lawmakers, Sheriff Scott Jenkins has hit back, promising to deputize thousands of his constituents should any bill threaten their constitutional right to own firearms and thereby impact their ability to defend themselves and their loved ones.

    Recently, a seven member board of county legislators voted unanimously to declare Culpeper County a Second Amendment Constitutional County (otherwise known as a Second Amendment sanctuary county).

    It’s nice to hear some are not taking this threat lying down.

    If confiscation gets shut down in VA before it becomes a thing... it could avoid a lot of pain and suffering elsewhere.

    We are (as of yet) STILL lying down.

    Without ORDINANCES being passed this is just rhetoric.

    Why folks cannot see this I do not know...

    This is how nations fall.

    One man stands against a storm.

    The honorable thing to do.

    If anyone has a better idea of what to do, I'm all for it. The 2a sanctuary seems to be making an impact. Some of the legislaters are already having second thoughts on the bills.

    Although I appreciate the Sherrif's sentiment, I suspect there is much more to deputizing thousands of constituents than just the Sherrif's say-so...

    At this point, in Virginia, any news is good news.

    Not in today's America. The Left has shown us that the law, including the Constitution, is merely a suggestion to be ignored.

    I think you missed my point.

    I do not believe that the Sherrif, in spite of his good intentions, will have any impact on what happens in VA with regards to eventual gun confiscation.

    Ahhh. OK. I guess we'll see what happens. Honestly I don't think VA will pass it at this point, but we'll see.

    I think I've read, from time to time over the years, that this tact (deputizing, reserve officers, special agents, etc...) was exactly how liberals pols gave their buddies and contributors permits to carry where their laws and policies had made it all but impossible get a permit in real life ie: New York, Chicago, L.A., etc...

    What I hope will happen is; if this Sheriff and perhaps others who may take a cue from him, become more vocal and garner more attention, I pray this will enhance our chances of getting this before the Supremes...I know there are some who worry this may result in an adverse decision...but [they] are all we got at this point...the storm clouds are gathering

    I graduated high school with this man. He enjoys shooting sports and is a genuine good guy. This does not surprise me at all. Liberal politics is popular only in NOVA, Virginia Beach, and Richmond. It's everyone's problem though. Virginia is not unique. Rural America vs. Urban America is a reality.

    Ran into a couple of very interesting videos posted on YouTube. One is by the Patriot Nurse and the other is a man involved in law enforcement giving testimony before the state legislature. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to provide a link with my IPhone.

    There is a lot of anger in Virginia right now. The law enforcement officer was very concerned about how angry people are at this point. The Patriot Nurse was very well spoken, and very angry.

    Not sure if this is going to lead to something, but it bears watching.
