Dear XXXXXXX,

On behalf of the County Board, I am responding to your request that the Board consider adopting a resolution declaring Arlington a Second Amendment Sanctuary.

My colleagues and I agree that there is no threat to the Second Amendment in the Commonwealth, and no legislation contemplated either by the Virginia General Assembly or the United States Congress that could have the effect of infringing on the rights of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms and therefore, no need to consider such a resolution.

In fact, the Board is poised to adopt a 2020 General Assembly Legislative Package this month that includes the following among our legislative priorities:

Gun Safety Measures:

Enact Red Flag, or Extreme Risk Protection Order Laws, creating a legal process for the temporary removal of firearms from individuals deemed to pose an imminent risk of violence to themselves or others

Adopt universal background checks for all gun buyers

Reinstate one-gun-a-month law – limiting handgun purchases to one gun a month

Ban sales of bump stocks, assault weapons, and armor piercing ammunition

Permit local governments to prohibit the possession of firearms on property owned or leased by the locality

We believe the adoption of such measures would reflect the desire of the majority of Arlingtonians, Virginians and Americans to see federal and state government adopt sensible gun safety measures.

Sincerely,

Christian Dorsey, Chair

Arlington County Board

And who is it that defines what an “assault weapon” is? To some snowflakes it’s any evil gun and to others it’s a “weapon of war”.

A nice thought, which could also couple with taking that area of NoVa along with DC into MD.

However, there's a lot of taxable income and property in NoVa, and the state would not easily give it up. Of course there are other reasons as well, but the bottom line is, well, the bottom line.

It was 31 earlier this evening.

I’m sitting in the Fairfax County board meeting. Over 300 people in the room wearing Orange Guns Save Lives stickers. We are starting to speak now.

At this point I believe it is 31 out of 93. I have not heard of any counties that have note voted in favor yet. It sounds like Arlington Co may be voting against... fred55

The messaging has clearly gone out to the antis that it's "scared white people" pushing this. That talking point is popping everywhere on social media.

If you are in Facebook, the Staunton Newsleader is being swamped with anti gun racists who apparently can call pro gun commenters klansmen with impunity.
