Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. told radio host Todd Starnes on Monday that if Virginia Democrats persist with their gun grab, he will call for "civil disobedience."

Falwell said, "I’m pretty sure I’m going to call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this." 

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and General Assembly Democrats have put forth legislation that includes a ban on assault weapons (defined as any semi-automatic rifle or pistol with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds), reinstating the previously repealed one-handgun-per-month law, expanding background checks and instituting red flag laws.
