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.
Research Shows that U.S. Hispanics Reject the Ridiculous Label of “Latinx”
Pew Research Center’s Hispanic trends found that Hispanics are categorically rejecting the label of “Latinx.”
The question of pan-ethnic labels to describe people with origins from Latin America and Spain has been a subject of discussion for decades. Over the decades there has been a consensus to label such people as Hispanic and Latino.
However, the political correctness crowd made sure to politicize these labels by introducing the new term Latinx, which is allegedly gender neutral and pan-ethnic. In the Spanish language, nouns, pronouns, and adjectives have feminine and masculine forms. This is way too much for politically correct activists in the West who want to export their politically correct ethos abroad.
That said, only a few Hispanics have embraced this politically correct flavor of the week. Of the U.S. adults who identify as Hispanic, only 23 percent of them have heard of the term Latinx. A measly 3 percent indicated that they use the term to describe themselves, according to a bilingual survey of U.S. Hispanic adults carried out in December 2019 by the Pew Research Center.
Although only a quarter of U.S. Hispanics claim to have heard about the term Latinx, there is a clear generational gap between its usage among different subgroups. Young Hispanics, between the ages of 18 to 29, are the most likely to have heard of the term, with 42 percent of them being acquainted with the term, whereas 7 percent of those 65 or older have heard of the term.
College-educated Hispanics are more likely to have heard the term Latinx than individuals without a college education. Approximately 38 percent of college graduates have heard of Latinx, in addition to 31 percent of those with college experience. By contrast, only 14 percent of those with a high school diploma or less are acquainted with the label.
Additionally, U.S. born Hispanics are more likely than the foreign born to have heard the term (32 percent to 16 percent). Hispanics who mainly speak English or are bilingual are more likely than individuals who mainly speak Spanish to have heard of the term (29 percent for the former vs. 7 percent for the latter.)
Awareness of the term does not translate into overall usage. Of Hispanic women ages 18 to 29, only 14 percent of them use the term. On the other hand, 1 percent of Hispanic men of that age group use the term.
It’s good to hear that Hispanics are rejecting this politically concocted term. The gender wars that the Left is waging are meant to create disruption. The last thing we need in the U.S. is more divisiveness and social instability brought about by the PC mad scientists.
