A basic judo throw–it’ll be a felony to teach it or learn it
They haven’t even taken office yet, but Virginia’s new Democrat legislature has already cooked up a new “law” that would virtually outlaw all forms of self-defense. But don’t take my word for it: here’s the text, read it for yourself.
This monstrosity, SB64, to be offered for a vote on Jan. 8, will brand all forms of self-defense instruction “unlawful paramilitary activity” and prohibit, and class as a felony, “any… technique capable of causing injury or death to persons.” You won’t be allowed to “teach” or “demonstrate” it, or learn it, or practice it.
That slurping sound is muggers licking their lips.
Well, Virginia, you’ve got that Democrat legislature you wanted, live birth abortion, sanctuary cities, and all. And they have announced that they mean to strip you of any possible way of defending yourself from criminals.
I know: it sounds ridiculous, nothing this absurd could be true. But again, read the text of the bill and judge for yourself.
These people are out of their minds–and so is anyone who votes for them.
Not that any politicians were paying attention, but in Chicago this past weekend, seven people were shot to death. And this in a city famous for its multitude of gun control laws. Amazingly, criminals break laws.
New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin brought up a startling fact yesterday, in a guest spot on Mark Simone’s WOR radio show.
If not for the bizarre case of two rogue police detectives who hired themselves out to the mob as hit men (https://themobmuseum.org/blog/mob-cops-saga-still-reverberates-10-years-after-their-life-sentences/), Goodwin said, there would have been no murders in New York City committed with legally-possessed firearms. There are, of course, hundreds of murders done in New York City; but in recent memory, except for the eight people wacked by the cops turned mob assassins, none of those murders was done with a gun in legal possession of its user.
New York City has pretty strict gun laws, too, come to think of it. For some reason gang members and professional criminals simply pay no attention to them. Somehow they always get guns.
Disarming the law-abiding population, taking away their means of self-defense, is a left-wing project, part of liberals’ scheme to grow the government. They can’t turn us into Venezuela if we’re armed.
And no, they absolutely don’t care how many people get gunned down in Chicago or Baltimore or any other Democrat urban paradise. That’s just life in a sanctuary city.
