    WV: Resolution–HCR 8 inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to becom

    West Virginia lawmakers are pushing a resolution inviting Virginia’s Second Amendment Sanctuary counties to become constituents of West Virginia.

    The resolution–HCR 8–highlights 1863, the year Republicans broke with slave-owning Virginia Democrats and formed West Virginia.

    The divide then was that the people of Western Virginia did not believe “the government at Richmond” had their best interests at heart and that such a divide exists again again today (over 118 local governments in Virginia have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries for this reason).

    HCR 8 Text

    "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"

    Possible precedent? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_Scott

    "The proclamation was finally repealed by Scott County in 1986. The county petitioned the state of Tennessee for readmission,[2] which was ceremonially granted, even though its secession had not been recognized by the state–nor the federal governments of either the Union or the Confederacy."
    I know I've heard rumblings for years of counties seceding from their own state to form a new state, but is there any recognition of counties seceding from one state to join another existing? If so that would actually be pretty awesome.

    P.S. This also seems pertinent: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...tion_proposals

    Bloomy and Gov. Northam have sure made a mess out of a once great state.
    I sure hope the patriots there can put the broken pieces back together.
    Now Doomberg has his sights and billions set on my Texas.
    I sure hope all the Sons of The Alamo are up for another fight.
    COME AND TAKE IT.

    I don't know - South Virginia sounds sort of good. Better yet, let the progressive and other idiots in the areas surrounding DC petition for admittance to DC.

    God I hope so.

    Maybe expand DC to the extent of the beltway. I don't see people accepting that unless DC is granted statehood, though.

    South Virginia becomes a State, North Virginia absorbs DC and parity in the Senate is maintained.

    The Virginia Compromise of 2020. To forestall Civil War. Just like the Missouri Compromise.

    I would be good with that!

    South Virginia sounds awesome. No Va can have their messes. The number of 2A of sanctuaries can separate from the leftist regime.

    The map below is the current version. The territory in green would be the hypothetical succession to the new state, so basically most of VA. This will become a flyer we hand out on Lobby Day. FWIW, I wrote the words.
