‘A Lot Of USA Chanting’ No Antifa, What is Happening At The VA Gun Rights Rally?
By Jennie Taer -January 20, 2020

Gun rights activists have taken to the grounds of the state Capitol in Richmond, Virginia Monday as the state legislature moves forward measures threatening their second amendment rights. Federal law enforcement had issued warnings to some federal employees that the militant group Antifa was expected to attend the rally but thus far, there have been no incidents or escalations in violence.

Sources on the ground described the protest to SaraACarter.com as peaceful with attendance in the thousands. One told this news site that there’s “a lot of chanting USA.”

Government and law enforcement officials told this news site that they were warned not to attend the rally stating that Antifa would seek to blend into the crowds of gun rights protestors by wearing conservative and pro-gun clothing. Gun owners were also told to be aware of thieves trying to steal guns from their vehicles, according to the warning issued by government officials.

Several reports indicate, however, that Antifa won’t be present for fear of retaliation. Antifa Seven Hills, which is based in Richmond, wrote in a statement that the group “never indicated we were attending as a group, nor did we make any call to action for folks to engage in the way that is being purported.”

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!

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Monday to show solidarity with the protestors. “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!” he wrote.

In anticipation of the event, Gov. Northam declared a state of emergency last week warning citizens of ‘credible threats of violence surrounding the event, along with white nationalist rhetoric, and plans by out-of-state militia groups to attend.’

“The Governor’s declaration prohibits all weapons, including firearms, from Capitol grounds, and will provide joint law enforcement and public safety agencies the resources they need to keep demonstrators, policymakers, and all Virginians safe,” the Governor’s office wrote in a statement.

@GovernorVA
I am grateful that this Executive Order stands, and that it will help ensure the safety of all Virginians on Monday.

A petition to appeal the Executive Order was struck down last week by the VA Supreme Court in support of Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s executive order.

The new gun control bills are moving quickly through the state legislature. Last week, three bills to limit citizen’s access to guns and even seize guns from existing gun owners moved through the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Joint law enforcement and public safety agencies? Sorry there Governor but 95% of those law enforcement and public safety folk think that you are full of $hit and hate what you are attempting to do as bad as the protestors. Don't be so stupid as to start a civil war by trying to take their guns. You will find out in a hurry as to what LEO Agencies stand with you.

I do appreciate you committing political suicide though!

Thousands there and not one single arrest or act of violence during the "rally".

They even picked up trash from the street and the capitol grounds before leaving.

Sounds like the liberal propaganda did not work.

The Right to Life crowds also clean up after themselves. Seems like after every liberal march, the streets and grounds are full of trash.

Well we haven't actually seen anything but talk from the "confiscating side", and the "ain't complying side".

There's where the rubber will meet the road.

Or not.

We had a handful of ANTIFA folk protesting Brownells after one of their own shot up the Jason Aldean concert. Willy and his two brothers showed up and gave them good cause to wander on back to the college. They tucked their tails and skidaddled back to their own kind without incident. Willy and his brothers aren't to be fooled with...least wise not by a bunch of punks with face paint and snot rags tied around their heads.

This was an over reaction by the left in Virginia. Goes to prove law abiding gun owners are NOT the problem. You know, Jesus said the poor will always be with you. I think it is also true then criminals will always be with you too. It is a fact. Law abiding citizens shouldn't have to put up with criminals, we just have to deal with them. The same with the poor. They are poor either because they are lazy, disabled, or have mental problems, or have had a string of "bad luck". We just have to deal with them as individuals. The left tries to paint everyone as the same and they are not.
