Gun Sanctuaries Virginia
Spectators applaud as the Buckingham County Board of Supervisors unanimously
voted to pass a Second Amendment Sanctuary City resolution at a meeting in

“Looking at a map of Virginia,” [Erich] Pratt and [Philip] Van Cleave wrote,
“it becomes clear that only a few, geographically small, yet heavily
populated, jurisdictions have declined to stand up against the current
threats to the Virginia and United States Constitutions.”

In other words, the “heavily populated” parts of Virginia do not have the
same view of gun rights as the sparsely populated parts. And since the
Virginia legislature was duly elected by popular vote, legislators will
likely be more responsive to the interests of the majority than of the
minority.


America is a representative democracy. But the gun lobby and other parts of
the conservative coalition are increasingly skeptical of that. Armed with an
all-purpose Constitution that means whatever they want it to mean, they seek
to block popular government action.

The Second Amendment sanctuaries emerging in Virginia and elsewhere may mark
a burgeoning conservative counterculture. Contempt for the “geographically
small, yet heavily populated” regions where most Americans reside is
becoming a conservative tic. It’s the impetus behind those triumphal MAGA
maps depicting countless hectares of American forest, farm and pasture in
bold Republican red, while little enclaves such as Brooklyn, with a higher
population than 15 states, are dismissed with a tiny blotch of blue.

Densely populated America, in other words, is not real America, and opposing
real America is by definition unconstitutional. What the gun sanctuary
movement is seeking is not protection from government overreach, but from
democracy.

If the gun sanctuary movement is anti-Democratic, then so is roe v. Wade.

In fact, so is the illegal alien sanctuary movement.
