Fake News Media Got it Wrong: Gun Rights Rally in Richmond Ends without Violence or Injury
A Capitol police spokesman revealed that there have been no reports of arrests or injuries at the Virginia gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia.
This goes against all the predictions and media hysteria that was being drummed up in the lead up to the rally at the state capitol.
Thousands of Second Amendment activists peacefully rallied at the Virginia Capitol on Monday, January 20, 2020. The rally had a strong police presence.
The focus of the rally was to protest plans by the state’s Democrat-controlled government to pass a litany of gun control legislation.
Although there were fears that the state could experience violence reminiscent to Charlottesville in 2007, the rally finished peacefully around noon, with attendees spilling into the streets, chanting and waving signs.
According to a spokesman for the Capitol police, there were no reports of arrests or injuries as of 11 a.m.
The Richmond protesters came out to send a strong message to legislators.
“The government doesn’t run us, we run the government,” said Kem Regik, a 20-year-old private security officer from northern Virginia who was at the rally peacefully protesting.
President Donald Trump tweeted in support of the protestors’ goals.
“The Democrat Party in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia are working hard to take away your 2nd Amendment rights,” he tweeted. “This is just the beginning. Don’t let it happen, VOTE REPUBLICAN in 2020!
Virginia Democrats are supporting bills that limit handgun sales to once a month, implement universal background checks on all gun purchases and transfers, and a red flag bill that would give law enforcement the power to seize someone’s firearms if they present a threat to themselves or others.
The rally has concluded but the fight goes on.
The Left knows what it ultimately wants — the dismantling of traditional gun ownership — via tidal waves of gun control.
Second Amendment activists will absolutely have their hands full in the 2020 session of the Virginia General Assembly.
