First off, I am a gun owner. Or, I was until I lost all of them in a tragic boating accident.
But I don't disagree, most preppers are strange. But what he is commenting on is real.
A person is guilty of unlawful paramilitary activity, punishable as a Class 5 felony if he: 1. Teaches or demonstrates to any other person the use, application, or making of any firearm, explosive, or incendiary device, or technique capable of causing injury or death to persons, knowing or having reason to know or intending that such training will be employed for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder.
The crazy thing is that there's already a law against this lol Virginia law 18.2-46.5
The most dangerous words in this proposal are “knowing or having reason to know” and “in furtherance of”.
The reason being that intent is no longer really required, leaving every gun range owners and employees susceptible to prosecution for simply doing business. It’s plain as day why this language is the way it is, because with these key words, only loose connections need to be established to criminalize gun owners and enthusiasts.
Furthermore, civil disorder is also quite a broad term as well to be concerned about.
I'd say it's probably a better idea to actually enforce existing laws...even better, start getting the guns out of the hands of criminals and locking people up who are violent. The solution is not to take guns from the 99% of people who are law-abiding citizens.
