Gun owners in Kentucky made a bold stand for freedom on Friday when they converged on their state Capitol building in Frankfort.
While Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam made the area around his state Capitol a 2nd Amendment-free zone, the patriots of Kentucky actually entered the Capitol building with their firearms, which resulted in some iconic and inspiring photographs.
The Louisville Courier Journal reported on the successful rally of constitutionalists who are making it clear that their rights will be infringed upon no more.
“We can’t just whittle away one little piece here, one little piece there,” said Calen Studler of Frankfort, who is running for the state senate. “Then the (U.S. Constitution) doesn’t mean what it says anymore.”
We Are KY Gun Owners put on the rally, and it was headlined by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), the liberty-minded Congressman whose voting record on gun rights is among the best in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“If you can die for your country, you can buy a gun,” said Massie, who recently introduced legislation that would lower the legal age for buying a firearm from 21 to 18 nationwide.
Other people who spoke to the audience included Dick Heller, who was the plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) that reaffirmed individual gun rights, and Republican state lawmaker Savannah Maddox.
“Be vigilant,” Heller said to the fiery audience. “Don’t let the comrade governor turn Kentucky into Baltimore, Detroit, Venezuela … Chicago.”
“We see what’s happening in Virginia and we may say to ourselves, ‘That won’t be us here in Kentucky,’” Maddox said. “How many years are we away from being like Virginia? It can happen just that easily, if folks just like us are not willing to stand up and do exactly what you are doing here today.”
The gun owners are vigilant regarding infringements on the 2nd Amendment that have been introduced in the state legislature. New Democrat Governor Andy Beshear is on the record stating that he supports red flag gun confiscation, and the constitutional activists are steadfastly dedicated to not letting that happen.
“We’re watching,” said Tony Wheatley, a leader of the group We Are KY Gun Owners. “Not only for the gun issues but for all constitutional issues that come up.”
“It’s kind of like the Declaration of Independence — it was basically a letter to the king saying we’re tired of what you’re trying to feed us,” Wheatley added. “Same thing here. It’s symbolic. We’re listening. We want changes.”
The free men of Kentucky are making a statement that they will not let their state become like Virginia, where Democrats have taken over and made a complete mockery of the Bill of Rights.

Massachusetts Gun Store Remaining Open in Defiance of Governor’s “Non-Essential” Declaration
The Gunrunner isn’t closing its doors.
A Massachusetts gun store is remaining open even after Governor Charlie Baker labeled firearm retail establishments “non-essential” and directive them to close under the commonwealth’s state of emergency declaration.
John Costa, owner of The Gunrunner in Middleboro, believes that the Second Amendment provides his gun store with authorization to remain open.
Costa explained that “under the second amendment we have every right to defend ourselves,” justifying the operations of The Gunrunner. Business has been booming at the store according to Costa, with unprecedented amounts of gun purchasers patronizing the establishment despite Baker’s command that they stay away.
Baker expressed discontent at a Wednesday press conference upon learning that some gun stores in the commonwealth were remaining open.
“They shouldn’t have been open last week. The only folks on the firearm side that have been essential been in Massachusetts since we issued the initial order are manufacturers.”
Costa is practicing social distancing measures, as well. He’s not even letting customers to enter the physical space of his store. Instead, potential gun buyers are describing the kind of gun they want for Costa to bring it out to them curbside. It’s hard to imagine more stringent social distancing measures being utilized by any business, but it’s not good enough for the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The store has received a cease-and-desist order from town officials after declining to close in accordance with state directives. Gun stores aren’t included as essential retailers in the proclamation issued by Massachusetts’ nominally Republican governor, and he’s going to greater lengths to close them than progressive Democrats in states such as New Jersey and California. Governors and sheriffs in both states caved when the Trump administration declared firearms retailers to be essential businesses under updated DHS guidelines, but Baker is steadfast in insisting that gun retailers close.
Americans have shattered previous monthly records for firearms purchases during the month of March, showing a desire to lawfully acquire arms that correlates sharply with the coronavirus epidemic. With an unprecedented demand for guns among the public, policy makers should think twice about arbitrarily demanding the industry shut down.
