“We’re Ready To Fight”: 1000s Expected To Attend Massive Gun-Rights Rally At Virginia Capitol

https://hnewswire.com/were-ready-to-fight-1000s-expected-to-attend-massive-gun-rights-rally-at-virgi...

 

As various pro-gun rights groups prepare to gather at Virginia’s state capitol in Richmond on Monday in what’s expected to be one of the largest pro-gun rallies in recent memory, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam has declared a state of emergency, police are busy setting up barricades and temporary holding pens – and one lawmaker has even arranged to spend most of the day in a safe house, according to the Washington Examiner.

The rally is expected to draw tens of thousands, and fears about Charlottesville-style violence are prompting police to scour the web for any signs of a violent plot.

 

Already, the FBI has arrested three alleged members of a violent white supremacist group who were planning on attending the rally.

As Republicans battle for the hearts and minds of the people against a state government that is unilaterally controlled by Democrats, Todd Gilbert, Virginia’s House Republican leader, warned on Saturday that white supremacist groups trying to spread “hate, violence, or civil unrest” would not be welcome at a pro-gun rally in the state’s capital on Monday, according to Reuters.

“Any group that comes to Richmond to spread white supremacist garbage, or any other form of hate, violence, or civil unrest isn’t welcome here,” he said. “While we and our Democratic colleagues may have differences, we are all Virginians and we will stand united in opposition to any threats of violence or civil unrest from any quarter.”

Organized by the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a group that annually lobbies the state legislature against new gun-control laws, this year’s rally is simply a much larger manifestation of the group’s annual gun-rights rally at the capitol.

As the Dems who control the state government plot a slew of new gun control measures in a state that has historically been more permissive about gun rights, Virginia has transformed into ground zero in the fight over gun rights in America. Already, gun owners across the state have been scrambling to buy up as many guns as they can before the new legislation takes effect, fostering a boom among gun sellers.

"We are ready to fight"?

 

Can that terminology by heavily armed protesters be considered to be a threat to our politicians?  Sure seems like it to me. We already had a kook mail bombs to our Congress. 

 

Heavily armed protesters threatening our government is not what America needs, IMHO.  They are promoting violence in America and should be held accountable. Heavily armed protesters fits the definition of a MOB, an angry MOB, that last year resulted in the death of a woman and the injury of dozens of people. This must stop.

   Hilarity ensues as a RW ignoble donald follower posts a thread with the heading of the RW group, 9 of which were arrested before the event.

    Now they are complaining that it was a failure from the media, really?   Why hawk a story that may have been written to stoke outrage and then blame someone else when no one rised to their bait.   

 

    IMO,   RW wanted a media event and it turned into a nothing-burger, except for the outing of one minor alt-sheriff who will most likely lose their job for wearing their unitform to the event in which the participated as a protester.

Pro-gun rally by thousands in Virginia ends peacefully

 

The rally coincided with the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, which is typically a chance for everyday citizens to use a day off work to lobby their legislators.

Coincidence ?

 

No

No arrests were made and no guns were confiscated in Richmond yesterday in spite of IMPOTUS tweeting out that Democrats want to take your guns in Virginia.  It's a lie, of course, but all the informed people know that.

Pretty much describes the regressives approach to the legal system. If it keeps people of color out, it is a law to be followed. If it makes the regressive do something he does not way, it is OK to violate the  laws.

No, the "Media" wasn't disappointed.

 

The fully armed and ready White Supremacist "Ready to Fight" protesters were disappointed.

Yes it is typical of the Dems. to want to solve the problem of gun violence, and the far right KKK types who belong to the organizations who will be their with their guns putting on a show of how tough they are. Most of them are like mob boss dictator Trump turn and run when called to face real danger. Trump got bone spurs (lied) when called to fight in Naum, and ran away. They say birds of a feather flock together.

There was no reason for the huge display of arms that these protesters brought with them. The protest is based on disinformation, or "fake news" about the state government planning to knock down doors, unannounced, to confiscate weapons. No truth to these wild claims at all, but naturally nut jobs believe these lies. The Governor of Virginia had to go on National Television and announce that these claims were totally untrue, no plan is in place to confiscate any weapons at all.

 

Gun nuts foam at the mouth about even the mildest of regulations. Regulations are within the confines of the Constitution, like it or not.

 

So, KidBoy2, what are the "slew of new gun laws" that it is claimed the state will pass?
