Oh ho ho ho.

[Virginia] Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s order restoring the rights to vote, hold public office, serve on a jury and act as a notary public for all felons who have completed their sentences specifically excludes any changes that would allow felons who have finished serving their entire sentences to “ship, transport, possess, or receive firearms.”
Now, of course, we all know that Carpetbagger Terry cannot over-ride federal law against felons possessing guns (more's the pity). And, I conclude he was just restoring rights to get more Democrat votes in upcoming presidential election.

But, what's he gonna say? "I believe felons who've paid their debt to society should have all rights except the right to defend themselves and family?"

Oh, this oughta be good. If the pro-self-defense world plays this right, I think hyper-partisan McAuliffe can be given a huge black eye. After all, he did say he looked it over thoroughly, consulting constitutional experts.
