Thousands of gun rights supporters from Virginia and across the country are coming to Richmond for a rally in opposition to gun-control laws being advanced by the General Assembly’s new Democratic majority. After threats and indications of potential violence, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) ordered a state of emergency and banned guns from Capitol Square; gun-control groups and advocates for other causes are staying away from what in the past has been a day of citizen lobbying on a wide range of issues. Gun rights activists and militias are dividing into two groups: those who will shed their weapons and enter the secured area, and those who will remain armed and in the streets outside the capitol complex.The Washington Post:
Live Stream of ammosexuals parading around:
17 y/o Trayvon Martin was shot on his way to get some skittles.
Yet there are thousands of white men able to march around openly caring assault weapons on Capitol grounds.
This is not about self-defense it’s about the enforcement of white supremacy.

Observations from afar
From what I can see by the pictures, this is like a comic con but for mediocre, racist white males who never served a single day in uniform and now cosplay with weapons and extraneous camo gear that makes those of us who did serve cringe and laugh at them. #VirginiaRally

In Virginia’s November elections, Democratic candidates won gun issue voters 66% to 32%, and candidates’ positions on gun safety ranked as the number one voter issue.

The Democrat Party in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia are working hard to take away your 2nd Amendment rights. This is just the beginning. Don’t let it happen, VOTE REPUBLICAN in 2020!
