Man creates petition to allow Virginia counties to leave the commonwealth
A Campbell County man hopes to give voters in Virginia counties the option to secede and join West Virginia because of gun rights concerns.
Rick Boyer created a petition for a “Vexit,” or a Virginia exit inspired by the United Kingdom’s “Brexit” from the European Union.
“Splitting off from an oppressive government and governing ourselves is the most American thing,” Boyer said. “That’s why America’s here.”
