With Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam holding onto his job somehow and Democrats controlling both houses of the General Assembly in Virginia, there’s been a movement to establish Second Amendment sanctuaries, inspired by sanctuary cities, in which local government and law enforcement would refuse to cooperate with the state when it comes to gun control laws including confiscation.
The Washington Post editorial board published a piece Saturday calling the gun sanctuary movement a fad and mainly symbolic. Overlooking the Second Amendment completely, the editorial board also argued that there’s no parallel at all to be made to sanctuary cities, in which no laws were being broken — except, of course, for being in the country illegally, which is still against the law.
