In a setback for Obama and his fellow travelers like Hillary Clinton and ex-New York City Mayor Michael “I’m a billionaire so I’ll just buy the election” Bloomberg, the state of Virginia has rolled back a plan to end its conceal carry handgun permit reciprocity with 25 other states, including Pennsylvania.

In late December, the wormy Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, unilaterally decided that the state would no longer recognize out-of-state gun permits as of February 1. The change, which was implemented without going through the Virginia legislature, would have meant that approximately six million individuals would have lost the right to legally carry a concealed weapon with the commonwealth of Virginia, according to an article posted on inquisitr.com.

The states affected by the attorney general’s order were Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, according to the inquisitr.com report. “In addition, Virginia conceal carry permits would have no longer been valid in Florida, Louisiana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Wyoming on the basis of no-longer-mutual reciprocity.”

Fortunately for Second Amendment supporters, Republicans – who control both houses of the Virginia legislature –were upset at the Democrat’s illegal proclamation, and at one point considered pulling the funding for Gov. Terry McAullife’s armed state police bodyguards.

Finally, gun control advocate McAuliffe — a Democrat and former Clinton fundraiser who was narrowly elected in 2013 over former AG Ken Cuccinelli — and Republican lawmakers reached a compromise that will short-circuit the action by the attorney general and result in the state continuing to recognize external gun permits, the article noted.
