Mark Herring, Virginia’s radical anti-gun attorney general, and Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe, one of his biggest supporters, just might have to put their money where their mouth is on concealed carry permits.
Herring recently announced that Virginia would no longer recognize concealed carry handgun permits from more than two dozen other states.
The move, which the NRA estimates would effect 6.3 million concealed carry permit holders, has been called “a declaration of war against the Second Amendment.”
There have been various calls to either recall or impeach Herring, as backlash to his actions have piled up.
Perhaps the best response however, would be this: the Virginia GOP is considering stripping the governor of his armed security detail.
Via the Daily Caller:
Republican state legislators could strip Virginia Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe of his protective detail. Virginia Sen. Bill Carrico told The Herald Courier last Tuesday he plans to propose a budget amendment during the State Senate’s January Session that would defund the governor’s protective detail.
“A lot of the governor’s power is deferred to the General Assembly at that point and I’ll be getting with my colleagues to circumvent everything this governor has done on this point,” Carrico said. “I have a budget amendment that I’m looking at to take away his executive protection unit. If he’s so afraid of guns, then I’m not going to surround him with armed state policemen.”
