President Trump on Virginia Gun Grab: ‘It Will Never Happen as Long as I’m Here’

From The Western Journal: On Monday, tens of thousands of gun owners and Second Amendment supporters converged on the capital of Richmond to register their staunch opposition to the gun-control proposals.

Democrats in Virginia won control of the state Assembly and Senate in the 2019 elections.

It didn’t take long before those Virginia Democrats began to make good on their vows to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Virginians.

President Donald Trump spoke briefly about the attempted gun-grab during a wide-ranging interview with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo while in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum, and he made it clear that he was standing alongside gun owners in support of the Second Amendment.

“I think it’s crazy, and I think Virginia is crazy,” the president said. “They want to take away the guns in Virginia. You have a governor that’s — I just can’t believe it — but Virginia’s very much in play. I think we’re going to win the state of Virginia.”

“They want to take everyone’s gun away in Virginia. You can’t do it. You can’t do it,” he said. “People need that for safety. They need it for hunting and other — but many people need it for safety. They need it for security.”

“They’re playing with our Second Amendment,” Trump continued. “Frankly, they’d get rid of it. I watched [Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam] on an interview. He would get rid of the Second Amendment if it was up to him, and you have many Democrats saying the same thing.”

“They’re saying it quietly, but if they win these elections, they’re going to try and get rid of the Second Amendment. It will never happen as long as I’m here,” he added.
