Dems Lose VA City Council Elections Over Northam’s Gun Control Spelling Imminent Doom in November

The results of Virginia’s statewide disapproval of Northam’s gun control began to materialize as two Democratic-held cities flopped during the recent city council elections. The council turned red after a massive turnout by Republican voters who were discontent with statewide gun control by the Democratic administration.

Republican voters triumphed in Staunton and gave Waynesboro City Council a working majority indicating a political payback for a similar state takeover by democrats during the last elections.

The Second Amendment sanctuary movement could be responsible for the toppling of Democrats. Both cities resisted adopting the sanctuary resolutions despite the outcry by their residents.

Republicans in both cities ran on the Second Amendment manifesto, indicating that the issue was a priority for many voters. The pro-gun movement could continue to gain momentum up to the upcoming elections, spelling doom for the Democrats in most elective seats in the state.

We are Texalorians... Weapons are our religion.... This is the way, y'all... Show your Texalorian Pride with this kick ass shirt!

There was huge voter turnout for both Democrats voters and Republicans. The Democratic voter turnout was even higher than it has always been during the past elections. However, even a higher liberal turnout could not match that of irate Republicans voting on gun rights.

Northam’s gun control laws haven’t taken effect yet. When the laws begin to bite, many gun owners who fell for gun control will have a different opinion. Similarly, the Democrats intend to introduce more gun control during the next session, which will make the issue an even bigger agenda in a state whose residents are still resentful of the Democrats’ unilateral gun control.

The toppled candidates ran without Bloomberg funding, as Virginia is no longer a priority for the gun control magnate. Consequently, the state is likely to slip back to its traditional support for the pro-Second Amendment politicians, many of who are closely watching the developments.


Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
