Virginia judge rules Northam exceeded authority in closing indoor gun ranges

A Virginia Circuit Court judge ruled Monday that Gov. Ralph Northam (D) exceeded his authority and violated the state Constitution’s right to bear arms by forcing an indoor gun range in Lynchburg to close as part of his March order shuttering some nonessential businesses.

Lynchburg Circuit Court Judge Patrick Yeatts’s decision to grant a temporary injunction to Safeside Tactical marks the first victory by a business challenging the sweeping closure by Northam in response to the coronavirus pandemic. A gym owner has also challenged the order, which extends to May 8.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Yeatts received his undergraduate degree from Lynchburg College and his J.D. from the Regent University School of Law

Regent University is Pat Robertson's school. Jesus, take the wheel.

Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson had an inspired vision of establishing a graduate-level institution that would train capable men and women for the challenge of representing Christ in their professions. In 1977, his vision materialized — a 70-acre parcel of land in Virginia Beach, Virginia, was cleared, the foundation was poured for the university’s first building, and an institution was incorporated as CBN University. The following year, 77 students began classes in modest, rented facilities nearby.

Today, thousands of students are earning their associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees at Regent University. Throughout its dramatic growth as a global center for Christian thought and action, the university has remained steadfast to its mission — Christian Leadership to Change the World.

So gun rights and religious rights but not abortion rights should trump community efforts to thwart a quite deadly virus.

Remember: There's no mention of "public safety" in the constitution.

Until the Constitution gets amended, we are required to follow ALL of it, even if sometimes it is inconvenient at the time.

Far too many lawmakers and politicians pick and chose which parts they uphold, and which they ignore, or even actively circumvent.

In Seattle, and Washington State as a whole, laws get made that directly contradict our State Constitution. The politicians and lawmakers figure some will stick because they don't get opposed.

Our last big gun control initiative was voted in, even though the state supreme court said it would be illegal when voted in, but they were not allowed by the state constitution to prevent it from being voted in. The initiative was flawed legally.

Even though it is a big CF, it has to run its course until the state's Constitution is amended to prevent it from happening again.
