‘Pro-Life’ Evangelical Jerry Falwell Jr. Promises Civil Disobedience Over Proposed Gun Safety Laws: ‘Don’t Mess With People’s Guns’
Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr,. told fired Fox News radio host Todd Starnes on his podcast that he would call for civil disobedience if Virginia Democrats pass proposed gun safety laws:
I’m pretty sure I’m going to call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this. You don’t mess with people’s guns in this part of the state. They (Democrats) don’t know what they’ve gotten into and they’re going to find out the hard way, I’m afraid.
The Roanoke Times reported on the proposed gun safety measures that Falwell, who claims to follow Jesus, is so upset over:
The Northam administration and Democratic leaders are pushing eight proposals, including banning assault weapons (defined as any semi-automatic rifle or pistol with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds), and reinstating the state’s repealed one-handgun-a-month law.
