Virginia massive gun-rights rally: 22k participants include Blacks and LGBTs

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

In response is a massive backlash by Virginia gun owners, who have formed Second Amendment sanctuaries and militias against the anticipate gun grab. As of  January 14, 2020, 130 counties and cities have passed sanctuary measures.

On Monday, January 20, some 22,000 patriots rallied at the state capitol in Richmond, VA, to lobby their legislators not to vote away Virginians’ Second Amendment-guaranteed gun rights.

There were rumors that Antifa planned to disrupt the rally. Indeed, according to a tweet by a rally participant @StoodAlive, Antifa were there, but they likely chickened out because of the massive show of force by patriots:

There are some ANTIFA members in the crowd posing as Trump supporters who are planning to start violence in-order for the media to blame Republicans and paint us as violent.

According to Getty Images, the Revolutionary Communist Party were the only counter protesters who attended the rally. Only one arrest was made — a female who police say repeatedly ignored their warnings to remove a mask that she was wearing, which means she likely was an Antifa.

Notwithstanding the hate-America media’s efforts to paint the rally as “white racist/nationalist/supremacist” (see DCG’s “NBC News reporter tries to set narrative for Lobby Day/gun rights rally in VA today“), the rally was peaceful and the participants were diverse, including Blacks, LGBTs, and Democrats (!). Some protesters even brought their babies.

Below are photo images from the rally as testimony (sources: Richmond Times Dispatch; Daily Wire).

We begin with this pic that brought tears to my eyes:

One look at this pic, you’ll totally understand why Antifa punks chickened out:

Sheriffs showed their support!

Blacks showed up in large numbers, a fact that went widely under-reported by the media. Some of them were armed.

One black Second Amendment supporter told Breitbart News:

“I do not support in any way, shape, or form Governor Northam’s and the Democrats’ gun control. What I also don’t support is the fact that every news piece you’ve seen this weekend they’ve always brought up the issue of race as though it’s nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here who care for the Second Amendment, when actually black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans in general care about the Second Amendment. I work a gun store part-time and I can’t tell you the number of customers I see of all races, all colors, all creeds, who care about the Second Amendment and who just peaceably live their lives, enjoy their rights and the Second Amendment. So, that’s why I’m out here and big media, mainstream media be damned, if you take a good look at me you can see that I’m a black American and all I’m out here for is to enjoy my Second Amendment rights. That’s why I’m here.”

Here’s a Black man stating why he came to the rally.

A Black woman was at the “white supremacist” [eyeroll] rally.

LGBTs were at the rally, carrying the rainbow flag.

Some parents even brought their babies to the peaceful rally.

Hey, Gov. Northam and the Democrat legislators of Virginia, did you get the message loud and clear?

Virginia anti-gun rights Gov. Northam (D) declares state of emergency

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

In response is a massive backlash by Virginia gun owners:

  • Local officials have issued pro-Second Amendment statements vowing to protect citizens’ gun rights against state authorities.
  • Cities and counties are forming militias and sanctuaries (see “Virginians are forming sanctuaries and militias against the anticipated gun grab“). As of  January 14, 2020, 130 counties and cities have passed sanctuary measures.
  • Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), a grassroots gun-rights organization, called for a rally next Monday, January 20, at the state capitol in Richmond, to lobby VA legislators not to vote away Virginians’ Second Amendment-guaranteed gun rights. VCDL President Phillip Van Cleave told Liberty Nation “the state is green with sanctuaries” and that he expects a massive turnout.

Monday, January 20, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day — a day known as “Lobby day” in Virginia politics as advocates for a number of causes use the holiday to try and buttonhole lawmakers. On that day, pro-gun and gun-control advocates would hold rallies. Jeff Katz, the host of a popular radio show on WRVA, said thousands of citizens are expected at the gun-rights rally next Monday because “People are outraged. This is the tipping point.”

Democrat Ralph Northam had men in black face and a KKK hood in his 1984 medical school yearbook.

Reacting to the planned rally, Governor Northam declared a state of emergency banning guns and “weapons of all kinds” from the state capitol beginning tomorrow, January 17, through next Tuesday, January 21.

The Associated Press reports that on Jan. 15, 2020, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency over threats of “armed militia groups storming our Capitol” ahead of a gun-rights rally next Monday. The emergency order will ban weapons of all kinds, including firearms, helmets and shields, from the Capitol grounds starting Friday and continuing through Tuesday.

Northam said the emergency order was necessary to protect public safety because of potential violence from out-of-state groups at the Monday rally. Claiming that “law enforcement agencies” consider the rally to pose “credible, serious threats,” Northam said some of the rhetoric used by groups planning to attend Monday’s rally is similar to what was said in the lead-up to last year’s so-called “white nationalist” rally in Charlottesville, VA, and that “We will not allow that mayhem and violence to happen here.”

Virginia Republicans, who did not even field candidates in many precincts in last November’s election, thereby ceding victory to the Democrats, were mixed in their response:

  • VA House Minority Leader Del. Todd Gilbert lamented that “there are legitimate concerns of a few bad actors hijacking the rally.”
  • But Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jack Wilson condemned Northam’s declaration in a statement: “Northam and the rest of the Virginia Democrats have made their session goal crystal clear: a disarmed, vulnerable, and subservient citizenry.”

Northam’s emergency announcement comes days after Democratic leaders used a special rules committee to ban guns inside the Capitol and a legislative office building. That ban did not include Capitol grounds, which are under the governor’s control.

InfoWars has an audio recording of an unnamed Virginia State police officer saying that Barack Obama is orchestrating (“running”) Northam’s state of emergency, and that “there are people in high places in [VA] government” who are “told to do…ignore Trump, pipe down, and the people are just scared and just frustrated.”

On the Todd Starnes radio show, Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr. vows he will “call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this [state of emergency]. You don’t mess with people’s guns in this part of the state. They [Democrats] don’t know what they’ve gotten into and they’re going to find out the hard way, I’m afraid.”
