Anti-Gun Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam Declares ‘State of Emergency’ as Thousands Descend on Virginia Capital in Pro-Gun-Rally Defending Second Amendment Rights

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The pro-gun rally has been organized by the Virginia Citizens Defense League  which opposes gun control laws proposed by state Democrats, who control the Virginia government.

Perhaps you have heard the expression ‘Molon Labe‘, and wondered what it meant, and wondered even more why you see a lot of American patriots using that expression. Molon Labe comes from the Greek and it means literally ‘come and take it’, and is a classic expression of defiance. Tens of thousands of American patriots are in Virginia right now to defend the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution against a democratic governor who is looking to take it away for the residents of that state.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Second Amendment to the United States Constitution

In 2020, we live in a nation where one side of the aisle, the Democrats, are wishing to impose a Socialist form of government, and as in all Socialist regimes the first step is always disarming the population. The fact that tens of thousands are rallying in Virginia right now is a good sign, but this needs to happen in the other 49 states as well. 2020 will be the pivotal year for the future of America, with dividing lines not drawn this sharply since the first Civil War. Stand up for our Constitution rights or the Democrats will take them away, it’s really that simple.

So far the rally has been quite peaceful as tens of thousands of law-abiding gun owners protesting without violence, but don’t expect that to last. You know the Democrats are going to send in ANTIFA and others to try and provoke an incident. They always do. Or maybe ANTIFA has already scanned the massive crowd, trembled in fear and ran back to the safety of their mom’s basements, we shall see.

Virginia pro-gun rally draws crowds amid fears of violence

FROM YAHOO NEWS: Several thousand gun rights supporters began massing near the Virginia state capitol Monday for a rally under heavy surveillance and a state of emergency declared by authorities fearing violence by far-right groups.

Dressed in hunting jackets and caps, rally-goers were checked for weapons as they passed through tight security before entering a fenced off area of Richmond’s Capitol Square for the so-called “Lobby Day” event.

Many more gathered in the streets surrounding the Capitol building, some bearing sidearms or long guns, which is permitted outside the designated rally area. They carried US and Virginia state flags and a huge banner emblazoned with the image of an assault rifle and the legend: “Come and Take It.”

Brooks, a 24-year-old Richmond resident who would not give his full name, came with a group of friends, including one with an AR-15 assault rifle, “to support the Second Amendment.”

“It’s our constitutional God-given right to arm ourselves. Having a gun is for peace of mind. It’s a protection thing,” he told AFP.

The rally has been organized by the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), which opposes gun control laws proposed by state Democrats, who control the Virginia government.

The VCDL has condemned what it considers a breach of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution, which states that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The amendment has proved controversial over the years and has been subject to many different interpretations. The Supreme Court has ruled that individuals have the right to keep firearms in their households, but left it to states to determine how the weapons could be transported.

President Donald Trump, a major ally of the pro-gun lobby, expressed his support for the protesters on Twitter Friday.

“Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia,” he wrote. “That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!”

Many of those massing near Capitol Square wore “Trump 2020” or “Make America Great Again” hats in support of the conservative president. Some chanted “four more years” or “USA, USA.” Richmond was a capital of the pro-slavery Confederacy, and Virginia has traditionally leaned conservative.

But the state, which borders the capital Washington, flipped in November and passed into Democratic hands. State Democrats promised to tackle what they considered the laxity surrounding firearms carrying laws, particularly after a May 2019 shooting in Virginia Beach that left 12 dead.

The new laws under consideration would prohibit magazines with more than 10 rounds, the purchase of more than one weapon per month, and permit judges to seize weapons from individuals deemed dangerous. A draft ban on the sale of semi-automatic rifles, however, has been abandoned.

A backlash to the restrictions has spread throughout the state, and more than 100 counties and localities have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, threatening not to apply the new laws. Security around the Capitol square has been increased, and authorities have arranged for extra police reinforcements to prevent any misconduct, as several far-right and paramilitary groups have said they would attend.

At the end of last week, the FBI arrested seven alleged members of the white extremist group “The Base” suspected of trying to create trouble at the rally.

Democratic Governor Ralph Northam on Wednesday declared a state of emergency for the rally site, which has been in effect since Friday and will continue through Tuesday evening. Carrying firearms, normally allowed in the streets, is prohibited, as are dangerous objects such as baseball bats and chains.

“The VCDL (organizers) have intended this to be a peaceful event, but they have unleashed something much larger that they might not be able to control,” Northam said.

The governor said they have seen “credible and serious threats” of “violence, armed confrontation and assault on our Capitol (from) groups with action plans.” The groups include out-of-state militias and hate groups, he said.

“No one wants to see an incident like the one we saw in Charlottesville,” Northam said, referring to another Virginia city where clashes between white supremacists and anti-racist demonstrators in August 2017 resulted in one dead and dozens wounded.

Hunter Mitchell, a 24-year-old computer engineering student in Richmond, dismissed the governor’s comments.

“Governor Northam and Virginia Democrats don’t care about us. They already consider us domestic terrorists and we consider them tyrants.” For now, he added, “It’s peaceful. Let’s hope it stays that way.”


Thousands show up at pro-gun rally in Virginia

State officials and U.S. hate-monitoring groups are warning about the potential for violence ahead of a gun-rights rally in Richamond, Va., on Monday, January 20, that is expected to draw militias, firearms advocates and white nationalists.

      It is their Constitutional right to do, to assemble. It is also their Constitutional right to remove tyrannical government. No state of emergency can exist because of this action.
