The drama in Virginia has escalated again as Governor Ralph Northam declares an official State of Emergency before January 20th’s “Lobby Day” protests.
Citing violence that erupted in Charlottesville during a Unite the Right rally in 2017, Northam said that there are credible threats that “armed militia groups plan to storm the Capitol” during Monday’s rally. In an executive order, he announced he is banning all weapons from Capitol Square for the day.
Credible intelligence gathered by Virginia’s law enforcement agencies indicates that tens of thousands of advocates plan to converge on Capitol Square for events culminating on January 20, 2020. Available information suggests that a substantial number of these demonstrators are expected to come from outside the Commonwealth, may be armed, and have as their purpose not peaceful assembly but violence, rioting, and insurrection. Assuring that Virginia’s Capitol Square and surrounding public areas are sheltered safe places for those who come to participate in the democratic process, as well as those who work on or near Capitol Square, is my greatest priority.
The anticipated effects of the potential convergence of tens of thousands of demonstrators on Capitol Square, some of whom may not come to assemble peacefully, constitutes an emergency as described in § 44-146.16 of the Code of Virginia (Code).
Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution of Virginia, by §§ 2.2-103 and 44-146.13 et seq. of the Code, as Governor and Director of Emergency Management and Commander-in-Chief of the Commonwealth’s armed forces, I proclaim that a state of emergency will exist starting on January 17, 2020 through January 21,
2020. Accordingly, I direct state and local governments to render appropriate assistance to prepare for this event, to alleviate any conditions resulting from the situation, and to implement recovery and mitigation operations and activities so as to return impacted areas to pre-event conditions as much as possible. Emergency services shall be conducted in accordance with § 44-146.13 et seq. of the Code. (source)
The Executive Order doesn’t only ban guns, but also includes helmets, shields, and more.
“No weapons will be allowed on Capitol grounds,” said Northam, a Democrat. “Everything from sticks and bats to chains and projectiles…. The list also includes firearms. It makes no sense to ban every other weapon but allow firearms when intelligence shows that armed militia groups plan to storm the Capitol.” (source)
The rally had been planned as an open carry event and the turnout is expected to be massive. Monday, the state’s congress is expected to vote on a number of incredibly unpopular anti-gun laws, discussed here and here. While one of the most alarming bills has been pulled due to overwhelming opposition, there are plenty more to take its place.
What are these threats?
When you push a population to the brink, threatening them with gun confiscation at the hands of the National Guard and telling them that their lawful actions of rebellion are meaningless, you have to expect that population to push back. Particularly a rural, gun-loving population that makes up most of the counties in Virginia.
According to a press release from Northam’s office, “credible intelligence gathered by Virginia’s law enforcement agencies indicates that tens of thousands of advocates plan to converge on Capitol Square for events culminating on January 20, 2020. Available information suggests that a substantial number of these demonstrators are expected to come from outside the Commonwealth, may be armed, and have as their purpose not peaceful assembly but violence, rioting, and insurrection.”
Specifically, Northam said they’ve received threats including people detailing plans to storm the Capitol Building, use weaponized drones, and more. A state official cited one posting that included a photo of an AR-15 with a caption that said there are “great sight angles from certain buildings” near Capitol Square. (source)
Who is sponsoring the rally?
It’s interesting to note that throughout nearly every article on the mainstream media about this topic, you’ll find multiple references to “white nationalists,” making it seem as though the event is being hosted by white supremacists instead of law-abiding gun owners who have no intention of kowtowing to unconstitutional mandates. It’s particularly interesting that it’s Governor Northam making most of these references, given his part in a recent “blackface” scandal.
Here are some examples:
- From NBC: “Northam’s declaration will also ban items like helmets and shields, items that some white nationalists carried in Charlottesville. “
- From USA Today: “Northam said the decision was a response to threats, some of them made online in forums hosted by hate groups and white nationalists. The governor called on rally organizers to dissuade out-of-state groups from coming to the rally and encouraged a “peaceful day” for Virginians.”
- From NPR: “Northam is raising concerns about a reprise of the deadly violence surrounding the white supremacist march in Charlottesville in August 2017. He said state intelligence analysts have identified threats and rhetoric online that mirrors the chatter they were picking up around that time.”
But in actuality, the group sponsoring the rally is Virginia Citizen’s Defense League, a group dedicated to “defending your right to defend yourself in Virginia.”
This isn’t the first tyrannical move in Virginia this week.
An extremely popular Facebook post that has been shared thousands of times reads:
So Virginia introduces a bundle of radical laws to destroy 2A rights, militias, sale transfer and registration bills, and the People of Virginia says no, and we’re going to vote you all out next term.
Virginia government responds by introducing a bill to eliminate voter ID.
Virginia says we’re not going to wait, we’ll petition your removal from office and gets almost a 3rd of the 240K signatures to remove the governor and starts petitions to remove deligates.
Virginia govornment responds by introducing a bill to raise the amount of signatures from 10% of the prevailing vote, to 25%.
Folks, this is the a textbook example of tyranny. “We’re the government, and we’ll do anything we want, whether you like it or not. We won’t let you vote us out, we won’t let you remove us from office…. And if you can’t possess the weapons that a militia would need to force us out, of office, then there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it” (source)
I guess we can add this Executive Order to the list of tyrannies above.
What happens now?
On their Facebook page, they said of Northam’s emergency declaration:
VCDL is going to have our attorneys investigate this situation once we hear Northam’s statement on Wednesday and we will let you know what we find out. (source)
Based on the comments on the VCDL Facebook page, a lot of Virginians are not planning to comply and it looks like there could be widespread civil disobedience on Monday. You can find out more information about Lobby Day here and you can get transportation to attend here.
I’ll update this article with more information as it becomes available. Please share this information with your friends and family members.
I live in Richmond but there’s no way I am attending this.
Antifa will be out in force.
Only a fool would go, unarmed, to be confronted by the fascist forces of Antifa.
There will be a lawsuit because this is an obvious attempt on the part of Northam to restrict valid first and second amendment rights.
The weapons ban only applies to the capitol grounds, so I guess everyone can march in a circle around the state capitol and keep their firearms.
I’ll stay out of Richmond next Monday….
Nobody lives forever.
And your grandchildren will need someplace free to live long after you no longer do.
If The PTB knew They were doing something right They would have no need for such tyrannical paranoical moves. They know They are being provocatively abusive of American freedom. They know They are lighting the powder keg of kickback so They can get Their showdown on the road to Their takedown.
What They haven’t reckoned on is the complete reasonableness and patience of the American people who still love their freedoms..
Maybe peeps should just show up on the 23rd instead. Or as AU suggests just skirt the edges. But one thing that The People of Virginia should count on is Agent Provocateurs in their midst. White Supremacist issues being thrown in the mix is meant to inflame everyone. Keep cool heads and pray Virginia!
So, you’re a coward, who doesn’t care enough about the country to take any risks? Understood…..
Northam has set up a honey-trap to snare any patriot who has not done his or her homework.
“Unite the Right” was organized and funded by Soros, and was always intended to be used as a cudgel against the honest, sincere patriots. Anyone, including Northam, using “Unite the Right” as an excuse for anything is your first clue to question that entire narrative and avoid the confrontation being arranged. It will NOT end well, regardless of individual courage or resolve.
Cowardice is the failure of intestinal fortitude to stand one’s ground and protect what must be protected. Foolishness is the failure of logical thinking and situational awareness, when a well-meaning individual enters the fray unaware that the entire confrontation has been choreographed and cannot end well for decent, liberty-loving people.
God gave us the ability to reason; failing to use our reasoning abilities is a triumph for Satan, whom many adversaries of liberty worship.
So you’re saying that the whole “Unite the Right” is nothing more than some cynical agent provacateurs? Wouldn’t surprise me! It’s amazing how many of these “racist” fringe groups are full of government informants and moles.
nope, I’m just not stupid enough to walk into an ambush.
Scaredy cat. That’s how they win and you end up whining. We don’t need you there. Stay home with mom. We need MEN with conviction.
Haven’t decided you are a man? STAY HOME WITH MOM!
That many People do not need weapons. And I am sure they can find rope of some sort “on hand” but of course “Blackface” Northam will be out-of-town that day.
They “needed” their weapons not necessarily in anticipation of any violence but to show that Virginians will not kowtow to this tyrant. Rope? Helluva idea? I’d have distributed lengths of rope, each already fashioned into a NOOSE, and have the demonstrators wave them!
ITS A LIE AS ALWAYS , THERE ARE NO PLANS TO RUSH THE CAPITLE IN VIRGINIA . JUST ANOTHER FABRICATION LIE FROM THE MEDIA .
Beware the false flag executed by the White Supremacists against the legitimate democratic government of VA. A suggestion is that it be a non event, and then their intelligence will be proven to be false. Then no one gets shot by those who do so in the set that it was white supremacist who did the shooting.
Of course dont go. Controlled opposition disguised as a ‘Malitia’ will be there blah blah blah… Anti this anti that. Birds of a feather both sides
Psych Op start to finish.
The only hook they have from the start is to tax guns first. The other is window dressing silliness for the 4 out if 5 tards among us who prefer to be led around by the Nose.
They will use that premise; tax owed, to find the weapons. They will rub it in your face as they tax you to get to your weapons. Never leave a dollar behind is the motto of parasites. To which they will create million (with a big M) dollar slush fund agencies to do it. All the while sucking all they can from law abiding ‘folks’ attempting to break them from all angles. Dollars is always, and will always be, first. To the very last penny that is “owed”. Destitution is their friend as long as it is you and other plebs. None better than the destitute who deserves what he got for being a supremacist, gun toting privileged hater, traitor to the the new america.
Mark my words on this, then hit me back when Im right. This was told to me YEARS ago………….
Remember, West Virginia has introduced legislation to welcome any 2A counties/communities that want to secede from Va and become part of WV.
Also, Northam was handed 1.4 million and another legislator rec’d 1.6 million from Bloomberg as per “Guns&Gadgets”. Virginia, your Governor is a Bloomberg (@#$%) and not worried about you peon voters.
I hope & pray that many counties in Virginia whose land is somewhat contiguous with West Virginia answer this thoughtful invitation with a resounding, “YES!!”
Gratitude to West Virginia… unfortunately, fleeing tyranny does nothing to stop the continuing metastasis of tyranny.
Even Florida and Arizona are now becoming battleground states, thanks to the curious attack of coordinated ineffectiveness suddenly besetting the GOPs in each state.
I hope the people of virginia KNOW WHAT AMBUSHES ARE,the police think this will end with them winning,and the ambushes will start on them,then the military, till they’ve ALL BEEN HANGED FOR TREASON..WAR is what they want,and like all dumbies,They’ve forgotten..EVERYONE LIVES SOMEWHERE,its just a matter of time and they’ll all be pushing up daiseys..BUT they won’t realize what they’ve done till the bullets hit their bones,and they will…
HOW did VA manage to elect a fool such as this???
Northam wasn’t elected, he was installed. Also note that “Unite the Right” was widely exposed as a Soros false-flag op, long before the dust-up in Charlottesville. If I lived in Virginia right now, I’d vote for seceding from Virginia and accepting West Virginia’s gracious invitation to continue living in peace and Constitutional integrity.
Better question is, how did the fools in the state Republican Party surrender so many districts without even bothering to run a candidate? Way to keep that fire in their voters’ bellies lit. It’s time to replace all that dead elephant skin, folks.
Another plea to always refer to any and all actions to remove weapons of any kind from the hands of American citizens of all the states and jurisdictions within the United States as exactly what it is. Civilian Disarmament.
The Disarmament of all Americans designated by those currently in power, be it within government, by elected and by non-elected policymakers; NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations – Red Cross, charted and uncharted ‘civic’ and citizen’s groups, and many businesses and business organizations) that are patently not part of the government, and NGOs that are often believed to be part of the government but are not; United Nations (through Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 and similar highly encouraged activities); high visibility individuals in many walks of life; and those that have been led to believe that what they are supporting will, in some often unnamed way, reduce the overall violence in the US and the overall number of deaths in the US and abroad.
Again, never use the term ‘gun control’ or any variant that refers to guns of any type, their accessories, attachments, and their ammunition of any type. Always, always, always call it Civilian Disarmament and remind people that while they think they will be exempted from the Disarmament due to some reason, they will be included in an ever-widening list of groups and people that are considered terrorists of some time and a danger to themselves and society if they have any type of weapon currently described or described in the future as people turn to picking up and using daily-living items as weapons to which they have access.
Until those that want total Civilian Disarmament believe that they no longer need to fear the populace over which they ‘govern’ and hold sway, with the list stop expanding. Please also remind them that any resistance at all, including verbal protestations, and even questioning the process in general or in particular, will be considered a potentially deadly threat to the officers conducting the acquisition of the ‘weapons’ as well as those that have been supporting the idea of Civilian Disarmament, and can (most certainly will by many) react accordingly, by immediate elimination of the threat and potential threat, which will most often mean the death of the person presenting the ‘perceived’ threat, no matter how tenuous or unlikely.
No matter what the penalties that are set up as punishment for violating any of the elements within the languages of the new laws happen to be, anything except absolute, unprotested verbally or even by extremely minor and accidental actions that can be, if wanted, considered resisting, cooperation and acceptance can result in the immediate death of the person being ‘disarmed’ or being detained or questioned for any other reason. All in the guise of ‘protecting the population’.
Remember: Civilian Disarmament means everyone. Because no matter what job or career a person has, in or out of government service, they are still a Civilian when not acting in their official capacity. And sometimes even then.
Civilian Disarmament is a major tool for tyrants to spread their tyranny, stay in control, and continue to live.
Just my opinion.
Don’t worry when all yours guns have been taken away,Harry will rule you through all the lackeys of the Royals that have been put into key positions in the US government. Most of the US presidents are related to the royals and Harry himself states that he is carving out a new position in the institute in the US reporting to the Queen on a regular basis. Always thought it was odd him marrying a divorced US wife celebrity instead of there own breed and now I see the method behind the madness
Northam is a KKK Blackface Baby Killing Gun-Grabbing Communist Piece of Sh*t.
I like that statement
We are in W.V. and support the constitutionally correct efforts of Virginians in their bid to have a peaceful rally and be heard by a unyielding Northam
Northam needs to be legally recalled /removed from office. Arrested for Sedition and tried as the traitor HE IS!!
Refuse to pay their “tax”.
I’m surprised you are paying their illegal and phony taxes in the FIRST place! They must be laffing their areses off.
As always, what is the sources of the “credible intelligence ” they are citing?
A bunch of internet arm chair generals ranting and raving are not “credible intelligence.”
On some of the forums that is exactly what I have seen. Some idiot, ranting and raving about showing up armed and all “kitted up.” Blowhards are what they are.
The VCDL has made specific statements and reasonable requests to ensure everyone’s safety, and everyone’s right to carry and to exercise their 1stA rights of peaceful demonstration.
I know a number of the credible Patriot group’s leadership have issued statements also to respect the VCDL’s wishes. It is their party, dont be that guy and screw it up for them. One Patriot group specifically requested members to NOT show up in tacti-cool gear. It was even suggested to show up in your Sunday Best.
NOTE: Credible Patriot groups are NOT white supremacists. Credible Patriot groups do NOT support or tolerate white supremacists. Credible Patriot groups members include Americans of all backgrounds, race and religions.
That said, there are some NOT credible groups out there that are, well, world class jerks (aka white supremacists). Unfortunately we have seen a number of anti-Semite attacks conducted by non-white people. World class jerks come in all stripes, unfortunately.
I have seen a number of claims running around on the internet from just the “What?” to “That is some serious tin foil going on there.” Everything from,
“Antifa is going to pose as gun-toting, MAGA hat wearing, pro-2ndA demonstrators and start shooting the police!”
“CIA agents are going to infiltrate the demonstration, launch a false flag attack and start Civil War 2.0!!!!”
Really? That is the heavy duty tin foil you got there, eh?
So what is “credible intelligence?” If it is on the internet it has got to true, right?
Okay, FBI just arrested three suspected neo-Nazis who planned on going to VA.
IF they were arrested for conspiring to commit violence, then is the declaration of a state emergency legit?
Let’s see. Arrested, not indicted; suspected, not convicted; conspiring, not committing… Yeah, no wiggle room there at all. Because it’s not like you can just go out and arrest any random person on suspicion of something, and then claim anything. Just ask Richard Jewell, Brandon Mayfield, Abdullah al-Kidd, the Scottsboro Boys…
Never broadcast your punches and never use social media to organize. Northam has a might makes right approach to any friction and thinking that retaliatory lawsuits will make things right, I fear is hallucinatory. We’re in a new paradigm where TPTB will lie, cheat, steal and murder to get what they want and reason can take a back seat. The fox is guarding the henhouse. Know thy enemy and know that you have strength in numbers.
I have just one question: Where TF is Trump on this???? The 2A is federal and he should be telling Northam to back TF off. Actions speak louder than words.
Hopefully you can find a whole bunch of pro 2A Virginia sheriffs to lead the assembly, in uniform. Need a huge LEO presence on the side of the Constitution to give the right optics and air of authority to counteract the lies that the tyrants are spreading.
So, let me see if I understand what is happening in Virginia. First, the really stupid, divisive, and lawless governor (Northam) decides on forcing through unconstitutional laws to disarm the people of Virginia, and the people responded quite negatively.
So then “Northam Declares State of Emergency in Virginia Because “armed militia groups plan to storm the Capitol” How stupid is this wanker? Is he simply ignorant and stupid, or is he clever and malicious? Why is he following bloomberg’s dictates? Did he accept money to do so? Is he just another useless talmud sycophant? What’s Northam’s deal? We know very well where the people stand, but Northam’s real and truthful standing is unclear. Is Northam trying to start a hot war with the people of Virginia? Clearly he does NOT represent the people of Virginia. Tell me again how it was he was elected into office…
This Nicolae Ceaucesceau lookalike seems to be nothing but a troublemaker out to just harass his fellow citizens. Look at the glee on his face. Mentally-ill and I wouldn’t really worry about his edicts.
He’s just a bad ol’ boy looking to harass you, play jokes and just laff about it all day long.
Demoncraps don’t like your form of government. They can’t eliminate it but they can poke fun, scare and harass you during their term in office. Sometimes many terms in office.
You guyz must like being scared a lot or poked you are alive or something. You keep putting in these demon jerks all the time.
And this guy must like being thrilled a noose might collar his neck one day. We in America must be bored people or something?
I understand Northam is having a fence erected around the brand-new “no guns zone” in the town square.
I thought fences were immoral, and didn’t work anyway.
Maybe they only work for Democrats.
This will happen when people are duped into believing that there is someone who is good enough to rule over them.
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” ― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
Carry a rope over your shoulder…:
That message should be good for a few sleep interuptions.
I get what you are meaning, but the MSM and others will interpret that as “racist.”
Looking forward to updates.
I read nowhere that stated which arms would be our right to keep. At the time of the writing there were at minimum muskets, pistols and long rifles. None were specifically prohibited. So why rewrite what can be held without a legal change to to bill of rights?
Changing the rules on % of signatures required shouldn’t be accepted.
The wording of 2A is simple, “the right to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”. Doesn’t qualify as to arms technology, or describes classes of weapons, the wording is simple and clear enough. There were many proposals for breech-loading weapons, repeating weapons, and multi-barrel weapons, but it took advances in metallurgy, manufacturing processes, and chemistry to make them happen. A cursory reading of the Federalist papers indicates that the Founding Fathers intended that the typical civilian militiaman, called to duty from his civilian life, be as well armed as any regular. This is further affirmed by the Militia Acts of 1792.
It’s interesting to note that Switzerland REQUIRES that its soldiers, once done with their active duty tour, take their military-issue weaponry HOME with them (they can, if they object, deposit them in a nearby armory), which becomes their PROPERTY. The Swiss have a large reserve force, probably a reason that Hitler didn’t mess with them in WWII. I don’t hear of the streets of Geneva, Zurich, or Basel being shot up by crazed Swiss men with their “assault” rifles!
And silence from Trump
OPEN CARRY RALLY….IS NON COMPLIANCE TO THIS GOVERNOR AND LEGISLATURE…ANYTHING ELSE IS SURRENDER….imo….SEMPER FI
Just a reminder…the Ballot Box has created this situation….for too long to few have elected lying politicians into office….the founders gave ‘we the people’ other means to ‘ right the ship of state’…as it sails off coarse….Money and lies have elected the worst kind of politicians…..their agendas must be eliminated…and IF the rule of law was HONORED in this state or this country…this event would NOT be in progress….the ‘Tree of Liberty’…in Virginia is thirsty and needs nurturing…..and the Constitution (state and federal) is the vessel to carry that nourishment……2 A….imo..Semper Fi
Here, Northam is actually doing the right and necessary thing. Thousands of people “storming” the Capitol” inevitably include a few who WOULD disgrace the 2nd Amendment by gun violence.
Legislators must hang, not be shot–and only if they actually commit the treason they have been threatening.
This is a serious threat not only because city folks outnumber the countryside, and therefore outvote them, PLUS having the universities, TV and news in their areas–but because hotheads cannot figure out the propaganda effects of violence. Many think that triggering OUR maniacs is the actual point.
Premature users of violence should hang right next to treasonous legislators.
So I guess Trump should hang for killing that general. Or if we use HIS logic, then these legislators, governor and law enforcers are planning on doing violence to us so we have the right to preemptive violence. For now I’m going to wait. Even if the government start shooting they will say that they were shot at first. The media will side with the government just as it did at Kent State.
There are countless articles and commentators and pundits who fence and tangle, who tumble and roll the slogans and platitudes of gun control, civilian disarmament, public safety, gun violence epidemics, commonsense restrictions, loopholes, Second Amendment rights and other sophisticated and nuanced and ultimately irrelevant sophistries that dance around and completely avoid the blunt and brutally honest point of lethal, military grade weapons in the hands of civilians.
They are in those hands for one purpose, and one purpose only.
That purpose is cold, unmistakable and ruthless.
It is to enable free men and women to rise up and butcher tyrants with gunfire.
Free men have an inherent and sacred right to overthrow and kill the tyrants that brutalize and oppress them. When free men are armed with lethal military grade weapons that right is backed by a dramatic and unstoppable power.
That power is what the politicians who drive the American nation towards scores of trillions of dollars of debt lie awake worrying about, and why they posture and preen and celebrate any opportunistic chance to dance in the blood of the murdered with wailing cries of “we must do something” before the gunfire has even stopped.
That power is what today’s blithering and ridiculous social justice warriors are terrified of. For all their well-publicized concern about rape and so-called “rape culture”, they cynically ignore the most important type of rape as applied to the freedom and dignity of human beings.
“Rape is about power”, they say, “not about sex”.
“It’s about taking someone’s power away from them without their consent.”
Gun control is the very definition of rape.
~Ivan Throne Founder – ‘Safe Streets Project’
The Virginia Governor Northam is creating a “gun free” zone on the capital grounds? How about just calling it for what it is: creating a zone this is free of the Constitution, the First Amendment, the 2ND Amendment, that kind of free zone. And we’re all supposed to stand up and take heed of yet another “ban.” Ban this Governor.
And it all really comes down to yet another un-elected, rogue billionaire — this time Michael Bloomberg — thinking they can buy the country they want. These losers — like Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, Bill Gates, Tim Cook, and Jeff Bezos — need to be reminded that they can vote, and that’s it.
Every day when I wake up I think God I don’t live in a country where everyone is so paranoid they think they need to walk around carrying a firearm. I’ve never figured out who they are most afraid of – their government or each other.
Please know what country YOU live in, Ms. “Highwater”, so I can AVOID it, and NOT buy any of its products!
I’m glad to live in a country where at least its Constitution, though that document is IGNORED, presumes that its citizens have a God-given RIGHT to be ARMED and to “walk around” with a visible firearm on their person. I’m glad to live in a country where the Government is AFRAID of its CITIZENS, as it should always be, else its SUBJECTS would have reason to be AFRAID of IT. History bears out that Governments are the worst killers of all, especially to their OWN PEOPLE.
To sum it up, yes, I have reason to fear a government that fears my ownership of firearms and the bearing thereof.
Guess it was much ado about nothing. Everything worked out fine, the Governor got to hide in NC, and law-abiding citizens got to walk around with their hardware, very polite.
Antifa stayed away from the main crowd because they were out numbered. Being the cowards they are, they can’t much win a fight 1 on 1 vs 1000 to 1. Now if Antifa had the 1000 to 1 edge all those wicked law-abiding citizens would be dead.
Good Job all that showed up, the paranoia was not warranted
What would it have cost to have NC KEEP him?
Thousands of responsible law abiding Americans, exercising their 1stA and 2ndA rights. They protested against a government that would take their rights away.
Good for them.
Pro-gun rally by thousands in Virginia ends peacefully
It’s obvious that Northam was hoping to provoke something as an excuse for his proposed shredding of 2A in VA. I’m glad that so many showed up wearing helmets and body armor, and carrying their rifles and/or sidearms openly, as is LEGAL in VA. This pathetic excuse for a governor needs to be given the finger now and the boot come next election.
I think this is the wrong date. Monday will be Jan 18,2021
Hi, Renee! This was last year. The date is on the image at the top of the article.
