So, "McAwlful" McAulliffe and "Pickled" Herring think it is now time to spit in the eye of gun owners.  Not just Virginians, but all American gun owners.  With their 'diktats' they think they can safely make any decree limiting our rights and liberties.  Well, perhaps they should pay attention to the one law they are always subject to: the law of unintended consequences.

With the denial of Virginian's right to be armed in state buildings, McAulliffe has opened the door for criminals and terrorists to a safe working environment for their heinous careers.  He also has accepted the legal responsiblity for anyone who can no longer defend themselves in those buildings and traveling to and from them.  That may have deadly consequences. McAwlful thinks he is immune from those consequences.

The removal of recognition of other states' concealed carry permits is not only an affront to Virgiinians, it is an affront to all Americans.  Herring and McAulliffe think they are paying back political favors to Bloomberg for his money.  What they are doing is denying the rights of Americans to defend themselves with concealed sidearms in Virginia and the right of Virginians to defend themselves in other states.  "Pickled" and "McAwlful" hate open carry of firearms. The unintended consequence of the 'diktats'? Everyone from out-of-state that cannot concealed carry, will now open carry and be joined by many Virginians.  

The other unintended consequence of their actions is they have really angered the gun owners and many other Americans.  They have never seen the political will of so many people hell bent on payback at election time.  They think Bloomberg's and Clinton's  $millions will protect them from the justified wrath of the people. They will be lucky if tarring and feathering is not brought back into vogue.
