Armed with a shotgun and sidearm, a gun rights advocate showed up at the home of a legislator who sponsored a gun control bill. The Right to Bear Arms Virginia founder and Hopewell GOP chairman, Brandon Howard, showed up at Delegate Mark Levine’s home armed with a Bersa .380 and Rock Island VR60 12-gauge shotgun. Howard said he was responding to a domestic threat against the US constitution.
In a live broadcast video, Howard said armed Virginians knew where the legislator lived and were going to show up at his house to protest the passing of the unconstitutional laws. He warned gun confiscators against taking his firearms,
“I hope you kissed your husband. I hope you kiss your children goodbye before you come and take mine [firearm]”
When contacted, Alexandria Police Department indicated that Howard had not violated any laws but they were investigating the matter. The police department indicated that he had the right to protest and bear his arms in a public place. In his defense, Howard said he had the right to voice his grievances at a place of his choosing. "I can redress my grievances, with my government, where I see fit," Howard said. "In the park, at his home, behind his house. It's perfectly legal."
The GOP chairperson added that the only reason the lawmaker felt threatened was because he was a tyrant because only a tyrant would feel threatened. He added that they would keep visiting the homes of tyrants ho violate citizens' rights.
“Those who would come to strip those of their rights are domestic enemies of the Constitution,” Howard wrote. “We will continue to go to the homes of tyrants who wish to violate the rights of the people.”
Del. Levine said he would press charges and if he failed, he would try to make such acts a crime through legislation. "I am confident that they will press charges if there is a legal right to do so,” Levine said. “If they feel the law is insufficient to prosecute, one of the advantages I have as a lawmaker is to come back to the Virginia House of Delegates and propose a law to make sure it is prosecutable.”
A senate committee recently rejected proposed legislation that the House of Delegates passed seeking to ban AR-15 style rifles and order confiscation of magazines capable of holding more than 12 rounds. It was the second proposal to fail after the Senate also rejected another proposed law to criminalize the use of firearms in hunting and self-defense by youths below 18 years.
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.
