With Democrats claiming majorities in both the Virginia House and Senate, people are preparing for the gun control measures they will pass.
Many Republican-led areas are voting to become sanctuary areas for the Second Amendments.
Liberals are aghast.
There's no laws yet.
And the proposals won't do what you fear they will.
But those leading the sanctuary counties are doing a "shot across the bow."
When Democrats head to Richmond, the message will be out - your proposals will be fought.
Just because you have the majority doesn't mean you'll get your way.
Any gun control proposals must have elements that Republicans can support - in reality, not a poll-tested possibility that doesn't exist.
We'll see if Democrats listen to this message.
