As Virginia’s representatives and governor act outside the confines of the law to oppress their people in what can only be seen as a pressure point to see just how far people will tolerate tyranny, the vast majority of counties in Virginia have declared themselves to be Second Amendment Sanctuary Cities, and at least one county has sought to form its own militia. Is this a good thing? Is it lawful? Or is there a better way to deal with the tyranny Virginia is facing? Constitutional scholar and attorney Dr. Edwin Vieira says that the claims of Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring is absolutely wrong in declaring that Second Amendment sanctuaries have no “legal force” and believes that the proper way to address the matter of training militia in Virginia is through preparedness laws, as well as an appeal to President Donald Trump, who would be the commander of the militia if they are called up and the superior to Governor Northam, to step in and put the kibosh on the entire tyrannical movement coming out of the Virginia legislature and governor’s mansion.

Dr. Vieira, a citizen of Virginia, spoke out on the matter on Setting Brushfires on Monday morning.
Take a listen.
Dr. Vieira supports the Second Amendment and the Second Amendment Sanctuaries and believes they do have good standing in law.
However, he would like to tweak a few items concerning how counties like Tazewell deal with what they are calling the militia.

Dr. Vieira would use Virginia’s preparedness laws to engage in what would essentially be militia training without actually using the terminology.
MILI’TIA, noun [Latin from miles, a soldier; Gr. war, to fight, combat, contention. The primary sense of fighting is to strive, struggle, drive, or to strike, to beat, Eng. moil, Latin molior; Heb. to labor or toil.] The body of soldiers in a state enrolled for discipline, but not engaged in actual service except in emergencies; as distinguished from regular troops, whose sole occupation is war or military service. The militia of a country are the able bodied men organized into companies, regiments and brigades, with officers of all grades, and required by law to attend military exercises on certain days only, but at other times left to pursue their usual occupations.
Dr. Vieira is also working with the Virginia Citizens Defense League on an appeal to President Trump to speak out on the issue and settle it once and for all before it goes any further.
He said that an appeal to Trump would be similar to what our forefathers did prior to the War for Independence.
After appealing to those who were in power in the Colonies, and to Parliament, our forefathers appealed to King George III, hoping that he would be reasonable, but he wasn’t and that’s what led to them being declared traitors and the ensuing of the war.
So far, President Trump has been silent on the issue, but Dr. Vieira is hopeful that he will be reasonable and squash what is taking place in Virginia.
Is it possible? Sure, it’s possible. In fact, it might even be likely due to the fact that this is an election season and Trump would be sure to lose the support he has by either ignoring this matter or siding with Northam and the Communists in Virginia.
However, as was also pointed out, President Trump has already demonstrated that he will ignore portions of the Constitution regarding his position as president by illegally banning bump stocks and pushing red flag laws, which are violations of more than half of the Bill of Rights.
We’ll see what takes place in the coming days. For now, we know that Governor Northam’s gun ban is unconstitutional and he’s too much of a coward to actually try and enforce it.
