Published

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.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
