I’m sitting here watching Joe Biden’s most recent propaganda video against the NRA. I keep asking myself why Democrats insist on blaming the firearms-related tragedies on the existence of guns themselves and why they refuse to acknowledge that behind every shooting, every bullet fired at an innocent civilian, there’s either a person with severe mental and/or substance abuse issues or a straight up criminal who would commit an act of evil no matter what weapon they employed.
How can they not understand that no matter how illegal you make a gun, no matter how many restrictions you put on a person’s background check, if they want a gun, they’re going to find a way to get a gun? And when they’re the only ones that have a gun, in gun-free zones where there are no good guys around to take them on, that’s when good people get hurt.
Why can’t they see that? I ask myself.
And then, sitting at my desk watching Joe Biden speak, it hit me:
Joe Biden and other civil rights abolitionists don’t want to admit out loud that the problem is a diminished mental health system in our country because then they have to actually do something to fix it.
They don’t want to admit out loud that criminals will not lay down their arms simply because the law says so, because then they can’t control people with fear.
The same thing can be said for “bail reforms.”
The more criminals they let out of jail, the more innocent people get victimized. And the more innocent people get victimized, the more they look to their leaders for protection. And the more protection leaders can give us, the more people rely on them. And more reliance on leaders means more power for them as well.
If the mental health crisis in America is fixed, if they admit that they’re not in control of criminals with guns, then not only will there be less people with mental issues (which means less votes for them), but then the entire population will know for certain that it needs its own protection.
Liberals don’t want to submit unarmed to the anarchy of the criminals, but they want to allow for the tyranny of the innocent.
Much like Adolph Hitler’s Nazi Germany. As much as the left shames anyone for talking about it, when Hitler disarmed the “unreliable” population (i.e. Jewish people) and loosened the restrictions for “normal” citizens (i.e. other German people), he took away the Jewish ability to fight against the rise of the Third Reich. He rendered them defenseless. And he exposed them to the tyranny of the regime.
Biden and other Democrats are pushing hard for a repeat of that disarmament.
The propaganda video (an attempt at softening civil rights advocates’ hearts by focusing on our children and schools) posted to Biden’s social media has this to say:
“Children went to school today learning how to duck and cover because they may get shot in school. Talk about a troubled soul in a country. Assault rifles, magazines holding 40, 50, 60, 100 bullets. There’s no room for them in America. We have to go out and take on the NRA and beat them. I’ve beaten them twice and I will beat them again.”
His caption above the video posting reads,
“This election is about the soul of America- and a nation that allows our epidemic of school shootings to continue has a troubled soul. We have to be the @NRA and get weapons of war off our streets. Lives depend on it.”

The Soul of America is the United States Constitution, written and signed by our founding fathers. It is the Bill of Rights, including the Second Amendment, which says “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
The guarantee of these rights by all American citizens; the rightto life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
THAT is the soul of America.

Joe, you lead the way into the towns and homes of criminals and tell them that they have to turn in all of their guns and ammo. After, of course, you’ve disarmed yourself and your security detail. You tell the criminals they can’t bear arms because that’s the law and you said so.
Let’s see how that works out for you.
As for me and my household, we will practice our God-given rights and protect ourselves. That’s the soul of my family, and our lives (and freedom) depend on it.

Virginia is leading the way in the creation of unconstitutional law proposals. And in order to make sure they stay in office, they’re trying to change the law to make it harder for the people to force them out of power.
First, it was full-blown gun confiscation, then it was a mandatory registration process. Then they started looking into shutting down outdoor ranges, then eliminating indoor ranges unless they were in buildings owned or leased by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Then they decided that gun-free zones were not enough. Apparently, they needed ammunition-free zones as well.
And, oh by the way, they also flirted with the idea of using the National Guard to enforce all these potential gun law changes after the majority of Virginia sheriffs said that they would not enforce them. It led to a common-sense response from a state delegate.
And now, with full knowledge that what they are doing is unconstitutional, and from a place of what I assume is fear, Paul Krizek wrote a bill that, if passed, could make it virtually impossible for these rights-stealing politicians to get recalled. These unconstitutional hacks are not only trying to move their state to a tyrannical environment, they are trying to make sure that they can enact their illegal will without fear of reprisal or removal from office.
The bill is summarized as:
Removal of public officers; petition requirements; signature requirements. Clarifies that the requirement that a petition for the removal of a public officer be signed under penalty of perjury applies only to the person or persons filing such petition with the circuit court. Registered voters signing the petition for purposes of reaching the required number of signatures shall not be required to sign under penalty of perjury. The bill also increases the required number of signatures to a number of registered voters in the locality equal to 25 percent, up from 10 percent, of the total number of votes cast at the last election for the office, and requires the signatures to be collected within a 60-day period.
The recall process in Virginia is like most states. There is a petition that must gain signatures of registered voters in the district of the elected official. Prior to Krizek’s bill, it required the signatures of 10% of the number of votes in the previous election. The petition would then be sent to the circuit court who would then require the elected official to show cause why they should not be removed from office. If the court determines that they do not show just cause to stay in office, they go to trial. If found to be in breech of any of the actions that provide grounds for removal, they will be removed from office.
While we were not able to find out how many registered voters live in the area with a population of 80,010, the numbers from the election in 2019 show that 19,407 people voted. With a 10% requirement, a petition for a recall would need 1,941 signatures.
Should Krizek’s bill get pass the General Assembly and wind up on Governor Northam’s desk for signature, the number of required signatures would be 25%.
For Krizek’s district, that would be 4,852.
Escalating the recall process to the governor’s mansion, it would require over 646,000 signatures.
Oh, I forgot to mention, the signature gathering window is 60 days. And, the filer of the petition has to sign it under penalty of perjury related to the statement of the grounds or reasons for removal.
In case you are wondering what offenses rise to the level of removal from office, here you go.
- For neglect of duty, misuse of office, or incompetence in the performance of duties when that neglect of duty, misuse of office, or incompetence in the performance of duties has a material adverse effect upon the conduct of the office;
- Upon conviction of a misdemeanor pursuant to Article 1 (§ 18.2-247 et seq.) or Article 1.1 (§18.2-265.1 et seq.) of Chapter 7 of Title 18.2 and after all rights of appeal have terminated involving the:
- Manufacture, sale, gift, distribution, or possession with intent to manufacture, sell, give, or distribute a controlled substance or marijuana;
- Sale, possession with intent to sell, or placing an advertisement for the purpose of selling drug paraphernalia; or
- Possession of any controlled substance or marijuana and such conviction under subdivision a, b, or c has a material adverse effect upon the conduct of such office;
- Upon conviction, and after all rights of appeal have terminated, of a misdemeanor involving a “hate crime” as that term is defined in § 52-8.5 when the conviction has a material adverse effect upon the conduct of such office; or
- Upon conviction, and after all rights of appeal have terminated, of sexual battery in violation of § 18.2-67.4, attempted sexual battery in violation of subsection C of § 18.2-67.5, peeping or spying into dwelling or enclosure in violation of § 18.2-130, consensual sexual intercourse with a child 15 years of age or older in violation of § 18.2-371, or indecent exposure of himself or procuring another to expose himself in violation of § 18.2-387, and such conviction has a material adverse effect upon the conduct of such office.
The petition must be signed by a number of registered voters who reside within the jurisdiction of the officer equal to25 percent of the total number of votes cast at the last election for the office that the officer holds. Such signatures shall be collected within a period of 60 days. A registered voter signing the petition shall not be required to sign under penalties of perjury.
Any person removed from office under the provisions of subdivision 2, 3, or 4 may not be subsequently subject to the provisions of this section for the same criminal offense.
So, the obvious question would be: which of the above was Northam and Democratic leadership guilty of when they decided that they were just going to trample on the 2nd Amendment rights of Virginians under threats of martial law and military governance?
