Make Staunton Virginia A Second Amendment Sanctuary.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


Staunton citizens you're about to lose the right to bear arms in Virginia. Governor Northam and his tyrant team of liberals are trying to remove freedom and destroy our constitution.

Augusta County has enacted a resolution to protect and defend their citizens. This petition demands that Staunton City Council enact the same resolutions as Augusta County did on December 4th, 2019.

It's simple.

They protect our constitution and freedom or the people will vote them out!
