Only a corrupt party would introduce a bill such as this. I know for a fact there is partition being circulated to impeach the Governor. In my opinion it looks like the Democrats are starting to feel the pressure from the 2A movement. From the Seal of Virginia "Thus Be To Tyrants".

If this doesn't say that these politicians know they are overstepping and are wanted out, nothing does.

They obviously expect the citizens to attempt to get them out.

Please, please, vote against this and instead present a bill for term limits and requirements. Starting with being a natural born state citizen.
