According to reports from the police, 22,000 people were in attendance at Monday’s Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Virginia.
Estimates coming from the Joint Information Center, which is made up of spokespeople from Capitol, Richmond and Virginia State Police, claim that 6,000 people were allowed into the Capitol Square while another 16,000 were allowed to stand outside the gates.
Despite the media scare of so-called “white nationalists” coming to disrupt the event, the gun rights rally ended peacefully.
Nevertheless, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam declared a temporary state of emergency a few days before the rally, banning all weapons, even guns, at the event on Capitol Square.
The rationale behind this move was that Democrat leadership feared this rally would be a repeat of the controversial Charlottesville rally of 2017.
Instead, this rally involved thousands of activists who were peacefully protesting the Democrat-controlled state legislature’s plans to introduce gun control legislation.
The rally is now over but the fight has only just begun.
These demonstrators’ fears are warranted given the radical nature of the modern-day Democrat Party.
Their legislative endgame is to regulate private gun ownership out of existence.
The incoming 2020 session of the Virginia General Assembly is bound to be one of the most heated in recent memory, and will likely serve as a preview to the many legislative dog fights Second Amendment patriots will be involved in the near feature.

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