Virginia Sheriff Has Warning for Gun-Grabbing Dems About Massive ‘Militia’

One local government official stands ready for a fight — he's vowing to protect and defend the Constitution and the Second Amendment

A sheriff in Virginia is not submitting to gun-grabbing Democrats.

He’s ready for a fight — and is vowing to protect the Constitution and the Second Amendment by creating a militia.

Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins says he will “deputize thousands” of people to defend gun if the incoming Democrats use their legislative power to enact more gun control in Virginia.

Jenkins took to Facebook to thank the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors for standing in support of dozens of counties that have vowed to defend the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

This is how you fight back, in my view.

Here’s how Breitbart explained the story:

On Dec. 4, 2019, Jenkins used a Facebook post to thank the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors for standing with the dozens of other counties that have declared their intention to defend the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

But his joy was mixed with somber warnings: “Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if [the] general assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions,” [he wrote]. “Red flag laws without due process will create enormous conflict as well.”

“America has more guns than citizens and murder has long been illegal. At best, the proposed gun restrictions will disarm or handicap our law-abiding in their defense and possibly cause a criminal to choose another tool for evil.”

“I remain very optimistic that our General Assembly will not pass the proposed bills. Obviously, if passed, there are many of us willing to challenge these laws through the courts. In addition, if necessary, I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms.”

Jenkins made clear he is talking about doing nothing less than calling up the militia to defend God-given rights.

He quoted Richard Henry Lee from 1788, saying, “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves … and include all men capable of bearing arms.” (source: Breitbart)
