"Gun Violence" License Plates

Virginia probably offers more vanity license plate options than any other state, with well over 300 options available for purchase. Starting July 1, naive or willfully ignorant residents can order a Stop "Gun Violence" plate for their vehicle. The plates a offer drivers the ability to display their cluelessness to the world, much like those Hillary presidential bumper stickers are doing.



I've never seen a gun become "violent." A person applying sentient behavior to an inanimate object would seem to be lacking a connection with reality. It's fitting that the bill authorizing the special plates provides for $15 of the fee for the plate to go be used to provide treatment "to individuals receiving public mental" treatment. The special funding would go into effect in 2020.

Of course, the phrase "gun violence" actually has no meaning. It's simply a catch phrase made up by leftists to influence the naive into supporting their disarmament agenda. Frankly, if I ever see a firearm committing violence on its own, I'll be inclined to call to an exorcist.

There is a requirement that 1,000 of the plates be purchased by the end of the year in order for it to be a permanent offering. Sadly, if the number of faded Obama bumpers stickers I still see is any indication, they might just make that number.

  1. Anybody want to place a small wager on now long it takes for one of the cars with this plate to be targeted? No resistance would be offered..................

    2. I can't say I'm opposed. Though it could unfortunately inflate their purchase numbers.

      But, oh, the looks on their faces! :-)

  3. My initial thought was that the fee for purchasing this plate would go toward some ill-conceived gun-control effort or another which would prevent me from ordering one in good conscience...I'm delighted to realize that the Republicans were able to add an amendment that the money from the plate be earmarked for mental health issues; a cause that could surely use some extra cash and doesn't assault my sense of propriety.

    I'm sorely tempted.
