Three Gun Owners Arrested by Federal Agents in Lead Up to Showdown at Virginia Capitol Next Week
Shortly after Virginia Governor Blackface Northam announced a state of emergency and issued an edict rendering the 2nd Amendment null and void, federal agents have arrested so-called extremists in the lead up to next week’s showdown at the Capitol.
The FBI Baltimore Field Office has confirmed the arrests of Brian Mark Lemley, Jr., 33, William Garfield Bilbrough IV, 19, and Patrik Jordan Mathews, 27. The feds claim that the men are apart of “The Base,” and were planning to attend next week’s rally in Richmond, VA before their apprehension.
According to a press release from the Department of Justice, they are being charged with various illegal firearms violations and “transporting and harboring aliens and conspiring to do so.”
The FBI alleges that the men talked about racist and white nationalist topics in their encrypted chat room, but provided no transcripts in their press release. Lemley had previously served in the U.S. army as a Cavalry Scout while Mathews served in the Canadian Army Reserve as a combat engineer.
They are claiming that Mathews was illegally trafficked into the country by Lemley and Bilbrough across the Manitoba/Minnesota border. While the feds do virtually nothing to apprehend criminal illegal aliens on the southern border, this is what they are instead focusing their resources upon.
A manufactured narrative is being created by the far-left state government of Virginia and the deep state that gun owners are neo-Nazis and white supremacists in the lead-up to next week’s rally at the Virginia capitol.
Gov. Ralph “Coonman” Northam declared a state of emergency and effectively revoked the 2nd Amendment via edict yesterday:
Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam has called a state of emergency after allegedly receiving “credible intelligence” of threats of violence at an upcoming gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia.
According to Vice, this state of emergency will temporarily ban individuals from carrying firearms on Capitol grounds.
At a press conference on Wednesday, January 15, 2020, Northam said that authorities believe “armed militia groups plan to storm the Capitol” during the rally on January 20.
In response to what he described as “credible intelligence” of threats of violence at an upcoming gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia, Gov. Ralph Northam has declared a state of emergency and will temporarily ban individuals from carrying firearms on Capitol grounds.
Northam also claims that law enforcement had intercepted threats and “extremist rhetoric” similar to what was observed before the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville on August 2017. “We will not allow that mayhem and violence to happen here,” he stated.
“No weapons will be allowed on Capitol grounds,” said Northam. “Everything from sticks and bats to chains and projectiles…. The list also includes firearms. It makes no sense to ban every other weapon but allow firearms when intelligence shows that armed militia groups plan to storm the Capitol.”
On the rally’s Facebook page, several attendees already said they won’t comply and plan on leaving their weapons at home. Nevertheless, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney has planned to crack down on rule-breakers. “Violations of the law will not be tolerated,” Stoney stated.
As many as hundreds of thousands of activists are expected to show up at the Virginia Capitol on Monday, Jan. 20. The results of that historic rally could determine the future of the Republic, and the tyrants are growing increasingly afraid as a result.
