The state of Virginia opened up the floodgates when it decided that localities can enforce gun control measures stricter than what the state legislature decides. One town in Virginia, Herndon, is now taking this to its logical conclusion and is considering banning guns from all city property.

Herndon is looking to ban guns from being used, transported, or even held by any persons on town property. As for what town property means, From Reston Now: 

If approved, the ban would restrict the possession, use, and transportation of any firearms on specified town-owned property, including parks and community centers. It would also apply to any public street, sidewalk, right-of-way, or public place specifically being used for an official town-sponsored event.

Some residents fired off on a similar ban in Fairfax County, which was passed nearly one year ago. Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church and other neighboring jurisdictions also have similar ordinances.

As drafted, all violations would be classified as a Class 1 Misdemeanor. The ordinance does not apply to sworn or retired law enforcement officers, military personnel who are conducting official duties, historical re-enactors, private security hired by the town, and individuals who have a concealed handgun allowed through a valid concealed handgun permit.

Once again law-abiding gun owners are being punished for no real reason at all. This proposal effectively bans the carrying of firearms and will undoubtedly be enforced considering the way the state is shifting politically.

Totally unconstitutional. That will not survive the very first court case or first person that is raped and murdered and the city is sued for 100 million over it.

Alas, these restrictions have survived court cases. And people have been assaulted in parking lots in some of these “gun-free” zones. And it didn’t matter to the politicians in the least

Of course not. Gun bans are about controlling honest people. Democrats / liberals don’t care about people. They just push for their ridiculous ideas.

I can guarantee there is not a single person it that town that can honestly and factually explain a gun ban.

I would bet money on it that within the next 20 years the people in general will not be allowed to carry hand guns, and owning one will require you to keep that gun in a controlled place. Now even hints from the wording and speeches of SCOTUS justices say the 2nd has been full filled by the establishment of the State National guard. It seems like everyone ignores the main intent of the 2nd Amendment when it says, “A well regulated Militia, now where is the regulation when everyone has a gun.

No. In less than 20 years the only people with guns of any sort will be the military (called home to patrol our streets), private security, the police, and criminals. We, the people, won’t even be allowed to own a hunting rifle.

Now show me where in the 2nd it say you have a right to carry any weapon, it says you can own one, if you are part of a militia which actually are illegal in every state since the 1950s when the State National Guard was operational..

For starters, D.C. v. Heller focused on “well regulated militia” and affirmed the “individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia.” Further, McDonald v. Chicago ruled on the basis of Heller that the 2nd Amendment is incorporated as applicable to the states and local governments as well as to the federal government.

Historically, the term “militia” refers to peaceable, lawfully armed people, free individuals. They aren’t reservists, national or state guardsmen, inactive military or any other organized group.  They’re civilians. 

How do we know? The founders would have had no reason to affirm this natural human right to military people. It would have made no sense. The military already was and is under complete control of the government. The government owned and controlled the arsenals, ammunition stores and most of the arms. The government also directed their use. 

Simply stated, the 2nd Amendment does not say, “…the right of the MILITIA…” It says “…the right of the PEOPLE…” To affirm a soldier’s right to keep and bear arms is unnecessary and absurd, much like affirming the right to wear an issued uniform.

Pretty stupid! Do you actually think anyone going to use a gun for the purpose of killing someone is going to let you know they have a gun. A person carrying with a permit might save someone’s life when a nut pulls out a people gun to kill people.
I think the government is the nut and we are still the people with no one to protect us.
In Britton the crime rate went up for every other weapon they could use agaainst people after they banned guns.
It’s just a way to disarm us so the government can control us.

I do not see “hunting” as an allowed transport – driving through the town with your 30.06 in the trunk can get you a ticket if found, according to what I read….

We will see if crime increases in those areas….at least they allow for the registered concealed carry permits…. key word is registered

Blunt objects being the number one tool of murders in the USA so clubbing will happen.

Everything that is going on in this country right now is the start of Communism. President disreguarding our laws. Open borders, vaccine mandates, tearing down statues, taking in refugees, attacking freedom of speech, coming after our guns, cancel culture, and on and on. Many more things also. This is history repeating itself from other countries in the United States now. I fear that too many people are going to be sheep led to the slaughterhouse.

I suggest we send the hundreds of thousands of newly arrived ILLEGAL ALIENS and MUSLIMS to live in these gun free paradises. They can all practice “peaceful coexistence”.

Then let’s see how fast these Liberal MORONS change their ideas.

I wonder, are any of those MUSLIMS ONLY enclaves that the Obama Regime set up gun free zones?

If there’s one thing for sure that I have learned over the years, it’s that if a right wing nut job says something about someone else being gay and how bad a “SIN” it is, they are usually gay. Do your drinking buddies know? Bet they’re gay too.

You want to carry a gun in public, get the permit. I’m hoping it will help get the illegal guns off the street. Let’s not add to the already ‘out of control’ issue with humans using guns to solve their problems. I’m a gun owner, I have a permit, I enjoy shooting; but I believe humans are the problem. There are humans that should not own a weapon, period.

There is, I fear, a day of reckoning coming to America. While these liberal idiotic politicians pass rules to us and not for themselves is worse that a crime against our Constitution it is showing Americans that they strongly support dictatorships and socialism. There is a saying I am sure all of you have heard “I will give up my guns when they pry my cold dead fingers from around it”. Sadly I fear that time is coming. May our Lord Jesus and God defend the rightous when that happens. I fear tomorrow 9/18/2021 at the march by Americans to protest what’s happening may well be a spark if we are not careful. God bless each and every one of you. Stay safe and pray for our country.

Since the beginning of this USA the law says that mayors have the right to control the possession of guns in their towns, and it was often posted in the streets in every state. It should be that way if the Mayor is responsible for the people then they should be able to make their laws governing the district thy control.

What does this accomplish? Crime control? Hardly. Anyone who would defy laws against murder and robbery would not be deterred by some stupid gun ordinance. This, like many other things now, needs to be understood within the context of the cultural war of freedom versus tyranny; truth versus fascist propaganda and Democrat lies; good versus evil. This is about them versus us and us versus them. It is like a left jab in the struggle. It is annoying and distracting and will undoubedly entrap innocent people and give the revenue enhancers policing for profit a pretext for robbery, but that is its only value to the fascist powers of control.
