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

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.

The tension even prompted President Trump to weigh in with a tweet on Friday: “That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away.”

 

One NRA member approached by a Washington Examiner reporter while rallying outside a legislative building earlier this week said gun-rights advocates in the state wouldn’t stand by idly while their rights are stripped away.

“We’re not going to be quiet anymore. We’re going to fight them in the courts and on the ground. The illegal laws they’re proposing are just straight up unconstitutional,” said Timothy Forster, of Chesterfield, Virginia, an NRA member who had one handgun strapped to his shoulder and another tucked into his waistband as he stood outside a legislative office building earlier this week. VCDL president Philip Van Cleave said he’s heard from groups around the country that plan to send members to Virginia, including the Nevada-based, far-right Oath Keepers, which has promised to organize and train armed posses and militia.

While the rally has attracted a substantial amount of media attention, Virginia’s gun-rights activists have identified another strategy to try and subvert the state legislature’s authority. As the New York Times reports, gun-control activist Philip Van Cleave and others are pushing municipalities around the state to pass or consider “2A Sanctuary” legislation that would in effect preserve certain gun rights in towns across the state.

Anyone planning on the attending the rally should keep this in mind: Dems have permanently banned guns inside the Capitol building, and Gov. Northam has declared a temporary state of emergency to ban all weapons from Capitol Square during the rally – a plea for the state SCOTUS to rule these measures unconstitutional was rejected on Friday – to prevent “armed militia groups storming our Capitol.”

Of course, even though organizers have taken pains to block far-right militias and outright white supremacists from attending the rally, we imagine these efforts will be lost on MSNBC, which should waste no time declaring every participant a dangerous gun nut.

Perhaps, as Ben Garrison writes, the Democrats want to spark a Civil War in the hopes that public opinion will turn against the president. They are playing with fire. When tyrants create laws to remove our rights, it’s time to remove the tyrants.

  1. While this Republican guy speaks of not welcoming hate, I am sure they look forward to seeing Antifa. Again Republicans show their ignorance of the fact of who is creating hate in this country. Goodbye Virginia.

      1. ANTIFA IS A LEFT WING GROUP, OBAMA’S STORM TROOPS, DEMOCRAPS HAVE AWAYS SPREAD HATE, IT GOES BACK TO AFTER THE CIVIL WHEN THEY STARTED THE KKK

        1. So Trump’s people are Fascist? Good to know. No wonder my German friends refer to Trump as a ‘Mussolini wannabe’.

    1. AntiF(irst)A(mendment) punks will be nowhere to be found in Virginia today. They only show up when they are in the vast majority. Chicken-shit pussies one and all.

      1. Not only chicken shit pussies John, they, each one of them honestly couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag. Afraid of taking off their masks because they don’t have a spine, yellow belly cowards. I’d love to be encountered by a group of them, they’d be base ball batted to death.

  2. I do hope this is a peaceful event of solidarity in conjunction with our laws of the land. The new socialist government of Virginia is following Chicago, NYC and other big cities in going against federal laws and rights.

    I hope Antifa doesn’t try anything stupid. I do not trust them further than I can throw them.

    1. Just so you know, even Chicago hasn’t tried a gun grab. There are too many drive-by shootings every weekend for the cops to give that a try. The gangs and turf wars here are a real thing. In Chicago, on a weekly basis, what most people would consider mass murder is business as usual here.

  3. Russians were able to overthrow the tyranny of Czar Nicholas, III because they had guns, as many were armed veterans of World War I. Unfortunately, they established a new form of tyranny and confiscated guns from the masses so Russians now cannot overthrow the new one.

    American Colonists were able to overthrow the tyranny of King George, III because they had guns, as many were armed hunters. Unfortunately, Leftists want to confiscate our guns and leave us defenseless against their form of tyranny.

    On December 29, 1890, the Seventh Cavalry (U.S. Army) forcibly disarmed most of the Lakota Native Americans near the Wounded Knee Creek in South Dakota and then massacred approximately 300 men, women, and children in the group.

    Since Democrats claim to be the compassionate party, isn’t it time for them to show a little compassion for the millions of people disarmed and then murdered by their own governments?

  4. What I am reading “governor blackface” contacted soros, and buses filled with “antifa”wearing MAGA garb and camo (so they can “blame” the 2nd amendment protestors), “black LIES matter” and “new black panthers” HIRED THUGS are pouring in to the capitol area to “provide ” the “spark” for violence the governor and his democommunist minions want to occur so he can push his communist “agenda”. Of course you know he will give the order for the “police” to stand down, and not touch any of the hired “groups” that he wants to swing the “opinion” of people watching on the fake news propaganda channels.

  5. I heard that the democrats are bussing in anti-fa and handing out MAGA and NRA hats to them and sending them out to start a riot. Typical liberals.

    1. Oh God. I hope not. Really sounds like they would, we have every right to protect ourselves. There are way more proper arms handlers in this country, than not. It is a sport and. A serious Venue for clear thinking Americans to utilize with our rights as an American Citizens. God bless the real America. We are making America GREAT. Again!

    2. Please to not apply the term “liberal” to collectivists (aka Progressives, Socialists, Communists) since “Democratic Socialists” seems a more accurate term. Classical Liberals (such as Libertarians) are the antithesis of Democratic Socialists.

      1. Liberalism is the religion that gets the nazi-commie foot in the door. I know Dennis Prager likes to see a difference between liberals & leftists. Probably the great majority of what once were liberals are now lousy leftists & don’t even know what it is. None of them know their history.

    3. This sounds exactly like something that these unamerican leftist would do. They want us disarmed so that we can’t fight against their hostile takeover of our country.

  6. The police should arrest ANYONE inciting violence, regardless of who they are. If Antifa wearing a MAGA hat starts any violence, arrest them IMMEDIATELY, PERIOD! This appears to be a setup, and the peaceful demonstrators need to be aware and use restraint. If the police do nothing, then they are as corrupt as the governor!!

  7. you dont know or appreciate the rights of U.S. citizens.
    folks like you will be the downfall of this great Nation.
    this kind of talk is exactly what the left push on people to distort
    what the actual situation really is.

  8. A House Divided Shall Not Stand Long: This Democratic-bullshit-lie, the crimes, the treason, the monies being mis-appropriated, the illicit-foreign financial influence all signal the need for the Constitutional Reset. OUR Republic has been infiltrated by enemies of The United States Constitution. The reset requires blood. It’s a historical fact. RESET NOW!

  9. Gun grabbing is a tool of liberalism.

    Liberalism is evil! See http://www dot Insectman dot us/misc/liberalism-is-evil dot htm (This is not a fund raiser. The article is “living” and is updated as links and leads arrive. It contains a wealth of wisdom from many Right-thinkers.)

  10. You have answered you own question with you historical analogy. The modern Democrat Party is NOT the party of JFK ( then they were liberal but still patriots ). Now they are baby killing , socio-communist, bat shi* crazy, traitors.

  11. Northam, Doomberg and company will be inconsolable if there’s no violence! And WE now if there is, it will be instigated by the people they bring in. The”media” is salivating!

  12. As I said before. There are many more law abiding citizens without safety knowledge than not. It is our right to carry arms. That is NOT going to change. Yes there may be protesters on the left instigating again. We will rise above this. America is Growing again as great, thanks to the level headed Americans. Fight fir your rights!

  13. It’s a set-up ….. it’s so damn obvious ….. the FBI/ADL will be sure to wheel out their “nazis” to pose for the news cameras ….. the crowd will be packed with Agents Provocateur ….. expect to see a few “Boston Marathon Smoke Bombs” complete with crisis actors.

  14. I sure hope that all these Protesters are Bible-Gun-clutching LAW-abiding CITIZENS that oblahblah spoke of…..DON’T let THEM take AWAY your RIGHT to BEAR Arms……!!!!! DON’T EVER listen to TRAITORS who want to make you DEFENSELESS so that Government can DO to YOU whatever Government WANTS……!!!!!

  15. On a totally different note but not sure where else I can say this, I keep getting “to vote” on whether or not Adam (pencil neck) Schiff should be removed from office. I voted NO. I’ll tell you why.
    It’s not much unlike what is happening to Trump. Just cause you disagree with someone (or in this case his tactics) doesn’t mean you have the right to remove him from office. We’d set a very serious precedence if all you have to do is dislike a congressman to have him removed. That is up to his constituency. Much like all the other wacko Dems in office, we can’t just have them removed. It’s up to the people who vote for them. Let’s get the voters on board with ousting them. Let’s show them there are better folks to run the country. Not all will agree but we can show them that their ideas don’t work.
    I HATE what they have done to Trump but there are better ways to deal with these yahoos. I’d love to see the Supreme Court weigh in on the illegal / unconstitutional actions the Dems have done. It needs to stop!

  16. The Globalist Liberal NAZI Demoncrat Commie party and the useful idiots don’t give a crap about gun violence! They just want to take away your guns to leave you defenseless against Government tyranny! Wake up patriots before it’s too late! Defend the 2nd amendment!
