The following is a transcript of a report from "Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson." Watch the video by clicking the link at the end of the page.
It has been nearly a year since we explored the second amendment sanctuary movement. Cities and counties declaring they would fight new gun control laws. Today an update as to what has happened since.
“It’s time to stand up and fight back”
Virginia was at the center of a nationwide movement to block new restrictions on gun ownership. Thousands gathered for a giant protest at the state capitol in January, guns were prohibited on the Capitol grounds by order of the governor, but attendees outside the fence were well armed.
Nearly every county in Virginia had passed second amendment sanctuary resolutions to speak against more gun control laws.
Man: I know that if anybody is going to get guns taken away from them, it's going to be people who go have them legally because that's the only ones that have them on record. So, I don't think that's right.
After our report, Virginia’s Democrat-controlled legislature failed to pass the most controversial proposal: one that would have expanded the definition of “assault weapons” and banned their purchase.
But a series of other new gun laws did make the cut, and Democratic governor Ralph Northam signed them into law in April.
Governor Ralph Northam: So, we’re here today with seven new laws which are part of a commonsense legislative package to prevent gun violence.
Those laws include expanding background checks to include private sales, limiting handgun purchases to one a month, and a so-called Red Flag law which temporarily block peoples from buying a gun if they’re deemed at high risk of committing violence.
Elsewhere, since our original report, New Mexico and Rhode Island also passed Red Flag laws and Colorado began enforcing one as well.
New Mexico and Rhode Island banned so-called “ghost guns,” guns made privately without serial numbers or other identifying markings.
On the other side, more communities have voted to become second amendment sanctuaries from Kenai, Alaska to Star, Idaho to Rich Creek, Virginia.
And there were significant wins for gun rights advocates across the country.
Red Flag laws were voted down in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Nebraska.
Indiana eliminated the permit fee for handguns and extended legal immunity for those involved in justified shootings.
A federal appeals court threw out California’s ban on high capacity magazines as an unconstitutional infringement of the Second Amendment.
Sharyl (on camera): The Utah state legislature is considering a bill to throw out a Salt Lake City law mandating background checks for purchases at gun shows in the city.
Who controls the language directs the
popular culture :
Marxists/socialists/feminists rule !
Libertines’, Liberals’, Progressives’ ( Commies’ ),
and Shadow-Cabalists’ PROPAGANDA language
RULES the West!—because political/social/
financial conservatives lack any CREATIVITY
(( my artistic bent gets me there )).
For example, which of these two terms have
more psychological (( persuasive )) impact on
women and girls :
B A B Y C I D E or A B O R T I O N ?
One aborts a plan while killing a baby :
Another example (( I have about 70 examples of
conservatives’ ongoing FAILURES at language )) :
“GUN Control” is Leftism’s choice of terms while
“SELF-Defense Control” (( my term )) exposes the
truth of what leftists are after (( over the years, I
had tried to get Lydia and Peter - VDARE.COM -
to use my more correct term—but to no avail )).
Anti-Self-Defense Laws !
—would be more powerful.

Absolutely and just try to use Wikipedia. Look up Definition of ANTIFA and BLM, both of which are involved in widespread violence, vs Proud Boys which have no history of violence.
ol....the last two generations in this country produced no men ...the reason for a corrupt country .....how funny
The Left and the Socialist Democratic Party continues to create new words to accomplish their agenda. Shamelessly lying to the American people via MSM and Social media networks. By mandates and force they have imposed illegal restrictions on every American. We must join together and search and destroy those responsible for the CCP political takeover of our country. God Help Us All.

Take over? Not in my back yard, almost in my front yard. I'm standing up and no one likes it! I don't care. I have family. I'm digging in and digging deep, I'm here to stay.
2nd Amendment will not be taken from us! Socialism, Marxism and well the Far Left will not prevail.
We are prepared, more of us should be. Open your eyes people it is getting REAL
