What is your definition of a “patriot”?

The dictionary says it’s, “a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.”

Seems like a pretty solid definition…

If we were to change it, we would add one little thing to the end of it, “a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors — both foreign AND domestic.”

Conservatives have seemed to confiscate the term over Liberals…

To Leftists, the word is almost a “dirty” connotation.

They tend to think it means somebody who supports President Donald Trump — no matter what…

But they’re clueless.

They don’t realize or refuse to see what Trump is accomplishing in his time in office — mostly because they CHOOSE not to realize or see…

They’ve swallowed the deep state’s lies about him — hook, line and sinker.

That being said…

The word patriot has become a bit confusing these days — but for those that love our country and everything it stands for — the term is pretty clear.

The Definition of Patriot Is CLEAR to Conservatives

A conservative patriot is pretty easy to get along with…

Don’t touch our rights — and we’re happy — but if you try and take away our liberties, we’ll fight you tooth and nail so you understand that it’s not happening on our watch.

Virginia Democrats are finding out what happens when you try to infringe or take away ANY of our constitutional rights — and it couldn’t come at a better time.

The problem is…

Virginians are laying in the bed they made when they voted their state blue — a Democratic legislature to go along with their Democratic governor, Ralph Northam.

That being said…

Nobody was surprised when the very first thing that Northam and company decided to do was go after the gun rights of their law-abiding citizens.

The FOUR different bills that slid through the state’s Judiciary Committee like it was on greased rails would require background checks on all firearm purchases, allow law enforcement to temporarily remove guns from people deemed to be a risk to themselves or others, limit handgun purchases to one a month and let localities decide whether to ban weapons from certain events.

Not only that…

They’re filing to end concealed carry reciprocity while Northam is looking to make the Virginia Capitol a gun-free zone.

But that’s not the worst thing they’re doing…

The worst thing was that they wanted to go after legally bought and owned AR-15s.

Power Perceived Is Power ACHIEVED

That was until THOUSANDS of National Rifle Association (NRA) members showed up to the Virginia Senate meetings to protest the new gun control laws — specifically the confiscation of AR-15s…

And the presence of so many gun owners forced the Democrats to fold — withdrawing the bill before it could be passed.

This is a win for gun owners in the state…

But it’s also a victory for the NRA and Conservatives around the country.

However…

That doesn’t mean the fight is over — for Virginians or America.

NRA’s Virginia state director, Daniel Spiker, let legal gun owners know that while this is a victory — it’s a SMALL one and the fight must continue if they want to keep their constitutional rights.

Spiker said, “While there were some improvements to some of these bills, overall, it’s still bad legislation. Putting in more regulations and making it more onerous on the law-abiding citizens of Virginia is not something we stand for.”

So, patriots…

Keep your eye on Virginia as the fight continues.
