VEXIT: Could Some Virginia Counties Secede Over Gun Control?

The West Virginia state legislature has proposed a bill to admit some Virginia counties to the Mountain State, as Virginia threatens to limit its citizens’ second amendment rights. The resolution, which passed through the West Virginia Senate on January 13, was drafted and introduced by Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Trump, IV (R) of Morgan County.

“Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia,” the bill begins.

On January 30, the Virginia House of Delegates passed seven pieces of legislation dealing with gun control, just over a week after Second Amendment supporters held a rally in Richmond. However, on Monday, Virginia lawmakers rejected a gun control bill proposed by Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam.

West Virginia’s Governor Jim Justice (R) has the bold vision of his state, which he often calls a “diamond in the rough,” competing on the national stage. But with an aging population, West Virginia is projected to lose one of its three seats in the U.S. House of Representatives following the 2020 Census.
