Fake News Media Got it Wrong: Gun Rights Rally in Richmond Ends without Violence or Injury

Published

on

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.

Nikki Haley is Raising MAJOR CASH to Position Herself for a Potential 2024 Run

Published

on

On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, Nikki Haley is headlining a fundraiser for Bill Hagerty, the favored successor to retiring Tennessee Republican Senator Lamar Alexander.

This move is fueling speculation about Haley’s potential presidential run in the 2024 elections.

The former South Carolina governor and President Donald Trump’s first ambassador to the United Nations is yet again putting herself in the spotlight as part of a broader plan to prepare herself for 2024.

Tennessee is a solid red state and the former ambassador to Japan, Haggerty, should be expected to win.

The Hagerty campaign held a drawing that offered two grassroots supporters tickets to the fundraiser for the opportunity to meet Haley.

“Team Hagerty is excited to have Ambassador Nikki Haley with us in Tennessee next week, and we are so grateful she stands with us in our fight to protect the conservative values of Tennesseans,” campaign manager Michael Sullivan announced in a statement.

Hagerty, recently received an endorsement from Trump, and is expected to coast to victory in November.

Haley did not support Trump at the beginning of his 2016 campaign, and instead endorsed Florida Senator Marco Rubio during the Republican primary.

After Trump’s election, he appointed Haley as U.N. ambassador. Haley has generally put on a pro-Trump act since leaving her U.N. position. It is up for debate if her pro-Trump rhetoric is genuine in nature.

Following her departure from the Trump administration, Haley started Stand For America. The political nonprofit group serves the dual purpose of keeping Haley in the public eye and adding fuel to her speculated 2024 run.

Haley serves on the Board of Boeing and maintains conventional neoconservative views on foreign policy.

 

Her winning in 2024 would likely bring back Bush-era neocon foreign policy.
