Virginia Gun Rights Rally

| January 20, 2020 | 41 Comments

 

Re: today’s gun rights rally in Richmond, VA: there are many conflicting reports coming out of this, e.g., KKK-wearer Northam has fled the coop at Richmond and leaves others to do his dirty work for him, anyone with a gun inside a marked off space will be busted, radicals and extremists will show up driving armored equipment, etc.

This article seems to address these issues a little less hysterically: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/on-edge-unarmed-virginia-gun-protesters-ask-armed-friends-to-watch-over-us

From the article:  But VCDL and other gun groups like Gun Owners of America and the National Rifle Association have claimed that it is the liberals who are eager to stir up fights in hopes the gun-rights activists get blamed.

VDCL has even warned members to not take the bait. It said this week, “If someone tries to provoke you, smile and walk away. There is probably someone secretly recording the interaction, with the intent of capturing some kind of inappropriate reaction on your part. Don’t take the bait. It’s not worth the bad press.”

The group added, “The Democrats are afraid of the voters and want to portray this peaceful assembly of law-abiding gun owners in the worst possible way. They would love for it to degenerate to ‘violence, rioting, and insurrection’ in order to smear gun owners. Has the Democrat leadership actually invited violent groups to attend for the purpose of disrupting our peaceful assembly?” – article

Even Trump has posted a tweet on this subject, appearing to endorse that view that gun owners are under assault. In a tweet yesterday, he wrote, “Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!”

On a side note, there is more violence going on on Chicago’s South Side from the use of illegally obtained guns than anything KKK Northam could dream of, and it is slowly creeping out of the ‘hood to the rest of the city.  Saturday night, a man walking his dog around 11:30PM on the far north side was shot in the hip. He said he heard four shots and then felt a pain in his hip. He is recovering in a hospital.

Making guns illegal to own and/or restricting them is not going to stop violence of any kind. That is not being addressed at all, nor will it ever be, simply because violence can be committed with any object, and the fools who want to restrict your constitutional rights know it. Their goal is to destroy your rights, not to keep you safe from anything.

When you start nattering on about your personally-owned weaponry and how much ammo you have tucked away, that is not the point of this article.  The aim of the Democrats is to discard the US Constitution because it is “outdated”, and then have everything their way.  If you don’t get that from the media’s hysterics and idiotic reports about guns and gun violence, you aren’t paying attention.

It does not have to be a gun that is the instrument of violence.

On a side note, Bloomberg has spent hundreds of millions of his own cash hoard to influence elections and get people he approves of elected to office in various states. This gun rights issue is one result. He got a fool elected to the Virginia governor’s office and now he’s rubbing his pansy hands together in glee. If he can do anything to buy the presidential election and run things his way behind the scenes, he will cough up the cash to do it. I suggest we all help him go broke.

I will repeat: the aim of the Democrats is to discard the US Constitution because it is “outdated”, and have everything their way.  If you don’t get that from the media’s hysterics and idiotic reports about guns and gun violence, you aren’t paying attention.

    You are correct, again. Lefties always make a mess for others to clean up.

    Creating chaos, diverting attention away from real issues, slight of hand, lying, and hiding agendas is a well practiced tactic among them. It’s what makes useful idiots so useful. Keep the ignorant stirred up about insignificant stuff while they hide behind the curtain, then unleash those same ignorant souls upon the rest of us as they fly away to their safe places.

  2. Cameron Kingsley says:

    I bet Bloomberg is the kind of guy who will not hesitate to flee to Europe if he is ever confronted by a pissed off mob or when the manure really hits the spreader.

  3. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    It’s been said that the opposition has already started busing their own “Astroturf Mobs” to confront the Pro-2A Demonstrators. I have no doubt that Soros and Bloomers have spent cash to bus in antagonists because they know that the media mob is going to blame anything and everything that goes wrong squarely on the NRA and the right. Come to think of it, does anyone else remember any instances of Conservatives looting, pillaging or rioting when B. Hussein 0bama got elected and reelected? How about any violence, drugs, littering or vandalism at Tea Party Rallies? But yes, that was seen at nearly any liberal mob gathering, remember the after photos of treehugger rallies and parades?

  4. 5th/77th FA says:

    Spot on and correct with all points made. It has never been about gun control as much as people control and the ability to re-write the Constitution. “You can only have the rights that we think you need.” “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” “Your true enemy is the one driving that late model vehicle, from his/her well kept home on their way to their exploitive capitalistic climate changing people suppressing position.” “I am your true friend, I provide you with so much free sh^t, keeping you available to help me out during riots…err err, peaceful assemblies.”

    Divide and conquer. The oldest, best military strategy ever devised. It works. Be Aware…Be Very Aware. Those statues down Monument Avenue have not oppressed, intimidated, or murdered a single person in over 100 years, but Northam has done all of this. Looking around from my spot on the couch I can see at least 15 items at hand that I can wreak havoc or spread terror and discontent with. And 14 of those items have neither a firing pin or a bullet. And don’t even think about letting me get to the kitchen…or the tool shed…or anyone of the 3 vehicles parked out there.

      Interesting exercise:

      Walk through various stores like hardware, sports, grocery, etc. Assume the gun/hunting/obvious-weapon stuff is gone. How well can you arm yourself in a 30 minute shop?

      Now assume the shopper is an all-time ex-con, or someone with some “interesting” education or employment.

      I once had this discussion with a person with advanced degrees in chem and bio. Nightmares lurk in household drains and dumpsters and over the counter items.

      Nightmares.

    Liberal Democrats are the kid who sets the house on fire, then wants to be rewarded because he called 911. Then he calls for a ban on matches and butane lighters.

  6. Roh-Dog says:

    The VCDL is a class act! I appreciate and applaud those that are braving the scrum to pushback on the villainous scum.
    “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

  7. I hope things work out at the rally. I thought that it would be taking place this past Saturday so I did a search and found out that it is today with TAh verifying it.

  8. Cameron Kingsley says:

    My aunt just texted me. The group backed away from a counter protest and appears to have wrapped up without incident. She was not in the march but she was following it on the news.

    Seen on Facebook:

    “Posted by a friend, who I’ll keep anonymous, but is a state level LEO in Virginia, his thoughts. (copied)

    “I want to go on record right now and say this, so you won’t be surprised about it later. Charlottesville 1 was engineered to be a powder keg. The town council set up and primed the entire explosive situation before they buggered out of town on Friday afternoon. The blood of a dead woman is partially on their hands.

    What is happening in Richmond, VA right now is smacking of the same kind of orchestration. For the first time, the governor has fenced in the capitol square (I guess border fences really do work) and it appears as if both sides of the issue will be separated, at least inside the fence. Problem is that to get into the fenced in area all these differing viewpoints have to mingle in line to get through security.

    This fencing is being bolted together so it is not easily removable. Limited access and entry points onto the capital square will ensure that once you are in there you will have no ready means of escape. All this to enforce a decree of a “gun free” zone outside the capitol for the first time in Virginia’s history in the absence of a couple hundred years of incident free events in the same location. (More on this later)

    With TENS OF THOUSANDS of people coming to this event there will be queues of people all around the area that can’t even get into the square. The people that DO make it in will be fish in a barrel. This means that if anything bad happens you will be unable to flee, unable to defend yourself, and unable to find usable cover or concealment. With all the congestion it also means there will be no way to get help to people in need of assistance. With the sheer number of people in attendance, law enforcement will be unable to eliminate any threats for fear of injuring/killing innocent people. They will also not be able to get to the actors until long after any rampage has started and been effective.

    There is also the very real possibility of crush and trampling deaths and injuries should anything spook the crowd.

    Never mind that you won’t be able to go to the bathroom, get water/food, or out of the elements. Then when the day is over you will be looking at several hours of gridlock just to leave, regardless of whether you came by bus or uber.

    First I would recommend you stay far away from this event. Do not go anywhere near Richmond. In fact don’t even spend any money in Virginia.

    Second, even if you do go the legislature has made it quite clear that regardless of what 91 of 95 counties (the voice of the people unencumbered by gerrymandering ) want, the representatives will go completely against what the vast majority of the state wants.

    Third this event has turned into a violation of the rules of three stupids: “Don’t do stupid things. Don’t hang out with stupid people. Don’t go stupid places.” On a good day, crime ridden Richmond is a stupid place but this amplification has made it even more stupid (if that is even possible). There are a few stupid individuals who will be intent on causing problems, and they will be in attendance too. This even going here would constitute doing something stupid.

    Fourth those who choose to abide by the governor’s proclamation will be leaving weapons in locked vehicles. Hundreds of cars will have weapons in them and will be completely unguarded. Cars make terrible places to store weapons. The thugs will be out in full force breaking into these cars in the hunt for free guns and the law abiding citizens will have unwittingly provided them. They will be the ones with the Molon Labe, H&K, Sig, or NRA stickers on them. That is what the thieves will target. A spree could flood Richmond with stolen guns. Since the police will be tied up doing security for the fiasco there will be no deterrent to these kinds of crimes.

    Finally, if you don’t heed my warning then please properly prepare for the event. Dress in layers, with your base layer being a moisture wicking shirt, covered by some level IIIA Kevlar. Then whatever constitutes fashion over that. Bring food and water, and some way to dispose of any bodily waste. Also bring medical supplies including a tourniquet.

    The legislators have created a logistical nightmare from the simple addition of their fence because our racist governor wants to appease his billionaire handler.

    This has nothing to do with safety and now has everything to do with creating a situation that will be deliberately explosive and dangerous. You show up there and you will be part of the pawns used in a greater gun control scheme.

    I pray that nothing bad happens, but I like to be prepared for most instances of potential disaster. This has all the hallmarks of a disaster in the making.”

    The place to fight these asshole is in the courthouse and at the voting booth. Meeting them on their turf at the appointed time and at the appointed hour is just stupid in my opinion.

      Or, perhaps some of the Pro-2A folks are smart enough to have some of their number guarding the arms and vehicles left behind. It would not take much to do this.

      Also, one might expect that perhaps the LEOs have some sort of professional interest in stopping such crowd-opportunistic predation, and probably lots of practice at such suppression.

      That stay-back “watch the cars” Pro-2A group, would also be a nice little quick reaction force. Any violent miscreants would have to consider such teams, very carefully, in their plans.

      And if folks are very smart, they will make their points and skedaddle before sunset. The real hardcore dickheads like to operate their conquest-by-mayhem plans at night.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      And there -is- a point to openly defying tyrants:

      We will not got quietly.

      And if that message is ignored, the next is:

      You wont go quietly, either. Not at all. But go you will.

  10. 2banana says:

    If I was attending.

    I would go in blackface with a sign stating I support the governor.

  11. Jerky Dave says:

    In looking at various video feeds and pics, it seems something was missing from this “white nationalist” rally. Where were all the Rebel Battle Flags? And watching Brietbart(sp?) live feed, even with the revolutionary socialists there was no violence and only chants of “USA” and “4 more years”. They even had folks picking up what little trash was to be found.

    • Cameron Kingsley says:

      I saw an announcement on the VCDL Facebook page telling all attendees to pick up their trash plus any other garbage they find.

      • Jerky Dave says:

        One of the greatest differences between the left and the right is what the place looks like following an event. With the left, the area is totally trashed. With the right, the place is cleaned up. In most cases it is cleaner after they left than it was when they arrived.

        • Cameron Kingsley says:

          Amen. Like that Keystone pipeline protest. Hypocrisy at its finest.

          • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

            Just look at the after pics of ANY leftwing mass gathering, let alone any tree-hugger look-at-me gathering. Come to think of it, I myself participated in a few Tea Party Rallies and we left the place just as good if not cleaner than when we started. And Law Enforcement present? We treated them with respect and in no time at all they didn’t even remotely mind being there!

    • aGrimm says:

      JD thanks for the heads up re Breitbart. I haven’t seen a lot on TV this morn, which tells me that no blood has been spilled yet (MSM motto:if it bleeds it leads and if it doesn’t denigrate the right we ignore it).

    • GDContractor says:

      Not even one Tiki Torch?

    • Dennis - not chevy says:

      It’s the same way here on the left coast.
      It’s funny, how in Sacramento, the left wingers leave the Capitol grounds trashed with litter everywhere; after we right wingers leave, there’s no litter to be found. It’s especially telling after the leftists are having an environmental rally.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        The aftermath of any big environmental rally is the place looking worse than a landfill as the tree-huggers pat themselves on the back, dump their placards and water bottles wherever they please and go off to score some pot or whatever freebies they can get at others’ expense.

  12. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    Things may change at sunset. Hopefully not. Hopefully sanity has broken out, for once.

  13. rgr769 says:

    The rally was quite uneventful, violence wise. No arrests have been reported and no physical injuries; although, quite a few progs were triggered and felt “unsafe.” And the fake news has been breathlessly reporting it as a racist white power rally, despite all those brown faces in the crowd.

  14. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    A happy ending according to this article, I’m sure that’s the opposite of what that coward Governor and his ilk wanted. Now that he ran away, that’s more egg on his face!

  15. Berliner says:

    Saw a sign from the rally late last night on that Twit forum then got distracted with food:

    “Criminals obey gun laws like politicians follow their oath of office”

  16. Charles says:

    The Fox News link reported one woman arrested for wearing a mask (bandana) in public, which is apparently a felony offense. But that same link has State Police lines up with every one of them wearing balaclavas over their faces.
    I’d like to see a front photograph to see if those reflective vests were also covering their name tags. (Admins, if you can post pictures, please do so).

  17. UpNorth says:

    Well, the “state level LEO” did get a couple of things right. From what was reported, once inside the fenced-in area, you couldn’t go to the bathroom or get food or water. Those outside the fence had access to “many” porta-johns rented by the VCDL and some of the downtown restaurants and coffee shops stayed open. And made lots of money.
    Apparently, Gov Blackface didn’t care about the citizens inside the Gun Free Zone and their bathroom needs.
