You know, Virginia used to be a state made up of sturdy, free White men who lived up to their motto: Sic semper tyrannis. That is the shortened version of the Latin phrase: Sic semper evello mortem tyrannis (roughly "Thus always I bring about the death of tyrants"). Many, today, mostly from the eastern portions in "progressive" Virginia, love their tyrants. That doesn't fly in SW VA, however, especially with those who live close to NC, TN, KY and WV. Rebellion is in the air over this sort of crap coming from the gun grabbers.
Virginia will stop honoring out-of-state concealed carry permits,
a move to tighten gun-control laws without involving legislatures.
By United Press International December 24, 2015
State Attorney General Mark R. Herring, a Democrat, announced the plan Tuesday. Virginia will no longer honor the permits from 25 states with which it has a reciprocity arrangement.
"While you are here (in Virginia), you are subject to the commonwealth's gun laws," he said. He added the 25 states have relatively lax gun laws, compared to those of Virginia.
The state's new policy, which goes into effect in February, is one which a number of state governors are adopting to address gun violence, without expecting Republican-controlled legislatures to change gun laws.
"This has been where the gun violence prevention movement is going," Chelsea Parsons of the liberal analysis group Center for American Progress told the Washington Post. "In much the same way President Obama said 'I'm not going to wait for Congress anymore,' the same can be said for leaders at the state level to really use their authority to take strong meaningful steps on this issue."
Although visitors to Virginia can still obtain non-resident permits to carry concealed handguns if they meet the state's standards, Herring's announcement brought angry reaction from some quarters.
"Death to Tyrants!"
