Virginia braces for unprecedented show of force by gun-rights activists

Washington Times – by Alan Suderman and Denise Lavoie

RICHMOND, Va. — Police are scouring the internet for clues about plans for mayhem, workers are putting up chain link holding pens around Virginia’s picturesque Capitol Square, and one lawmaker even plans to hide in a safe house in advance of what’s expected to be an unprecedented show of force by gun-rights activists.

What is provoking their anger in this once reliably conservative state is the new Democratic majority leadership and its plans to enact a slew of gun restrictions. This clash of old and new has made Virginia – determined to prevent a replay of the Charlottesville violence in 2017 – ground zero in the nation’s raging debate over gun control.

The Virginia Citizens Defense League’s yearly rally at the Capitol typically draws just a few hundred gun enthusiasts. This year, however, thousands of gun activists are expected to turn out. Second Amendment groups have identified the state as a rallying point for the fight against what they see as a national erosion of gun rights.

“We’re not going to be quiet anymore. We’re going to fight them in the courts and on the ground. The illegal laws they’re proposing are just straight up unconstitutional,” said Timothy Forster, of Chesterfield, Virginia, an NRA member who had one handgun strapped to his shoulder and another tucked into his waistband as he stood outside a legislative office building earlier this week.

VCDL president Philip Van Cleave said he’s heard from groups around the country that plan to send members to Virginia, including the Nevada-based, far-right Oath Keepers, which has promised to organize and train armed posses and militia.

  1. ‘and one lawmaker even plans to hide in a safe house in advance of what’s expected to be an unprecedented show of force by gun-rights activists.’…….. you may run but you cannot hide from the Truth of your traitorous deeds and you will answer for them

    ‘What is provoking their anger in this once reliably conservative state is the new Democratic majority leadership and its plans to enact a slew of gun restrictions’…………. if you fools (authors of this article) believe this is a Dem agenda only then would you not expect the Rs to be out in full force backing their constituents? This is an all out attack by communists whether they call themselves Ds or Rs on our SUPREME LAW THE BILL OF RIGHTS

  2. And remember all of you who are carrying guns, you had better make damn sure you have all your government permission papers in order to “Legally” own that weapon, let alone carry it. Stupid fks….

    The very fact that you think you need permission from Government for anything to do with our rights, so enumerated in our bill of rights; tells me, you are in a thought paradigm.

    Maybe some are now waking up…. Corporate Government = unlawful tyranny…

    1. Thanks Tim. Can’t believe those huge concrete balls blocking the road. They sure did some planning.

      And Antifa is helping to put up the fences. Unfrikkin’believable!!!!!!!!!

      .

  3. Excellent footage. Hopefully though she’ll not say “this is what happens when we don’t vote & this is what happens when dems get in office” anymore.

    Both D’s & R’s work for the corporation.

  4. There’s a real possibility that something ugly may happen in Virginia tomorrow. The gov’t may kick off something violent so they can use this event to expand new gun control and/or confiscations nationwide.

    I think it’s most likely that absolutely nothing will happen, but if communications go down, expect (and be prepared for) the worst.

    Be on your toes, and don’t believe ANYTHING that’s reported by the Zionist news.
