Governor Blackface Northam is taking credit for the safe atmosphere at today’s gun rights rally at the Virginia Capitol, suggesting that it was his leadership that stopped a nebulous violent threat from the demonstration.
“We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. This resulted from weeks of planning and extensive cooperation among state, local, and federal partners in Virginia and beyond,” Northam said.
In actuality, there were no incidents because Virginia gun owners are law-abiding citizens. Northam created the state of emergency and revoked the self-defense rights of attendees to send a message as apart of his ongoing war against the 2nd Amendment.
“Virginia’s law enforcement and first responders demonstrated tremendous professionalism. I’m proud of their work. I have spoken with Colonel Settle of the State Police, Colonel Pike of the Capitol Police, and Chief Smith of the Richmond Police Department, as well as leaders of the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s office, and thanked them for keeping Virginia safe,” Northam continued.
This is another lie from Northam. Under his watch, law enforcement personnel were turned against the people and forced to treat gun owners like ISIS. One patriot was hassled by armed police who drove over 100 miles to essentially accuse the disabled military veteran of being a terrorist at his own home.
The footage of that disgraceful situation can be seen here:
Northam finished his statement with lip service about the virtues of peaceful protest, even after he did everything in his power to escalate the situation in the days leading up to it.
“Thousands of people came to Richmond to make their voices heard. Today showed that when people disagree, they can do so peacefully. The issues before us evoke strong emotions, and progress is often difficult,” Northam said.
“I will continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and I will continue to do everything in my power to keep our Commonwealth safe,” he added.
By “keep our Commonwealth safe,” Northam means that he will not give up on his push for draconian gun control despite the impressive showing from 2nd Amendment supporters at the Capitol today. He is dead set on infringing upon the rights of the people.
The nascent 2nd Amendment sanctuary movement will needed to keep expanding in order to fend off the unconstitutional gun control measures pushed by overreaching Democrats led by Coonman.
POLL: National Support for Gun Control Plummets Amid 2020 Coronavirus, Crime Surge, Race Riots
Support for this leftist policy is declining.
A new poll from Rasmussen Reports reveals that nationwide support for gun control has plummeted during 2020, with only 52% of Americans describing their support for “stricter gun control laws” this year. An identical poll in 2019 revealed that 64% of Americans supported stricter gun control in 2019, with 12% changing their position this year.
The Rasmussen poll also reveals that Americans who were already gun owners have armed themselves in increasing fashion this year. A massive 27% of Americans who already have guns in their house have bought at least one new one in the last six months, showing that the nation’s existing population of gun owners has become even more resolute in their support of the Second Amendment.
The chaotic events of 2020 have proved sufficient to fuel what many have identified as the greatest “panic buy” of firearms and ammunition in American history, with sales records being routinely crushed on a monthly basis by US gun buyers. Concerns largely related to coronavirus, nationwide race riots, and an increase in violent crime have led in great part to millions of first-time gun owners in the country, with women and citizens of liberal states such as California executing their rights to gun ownership in a manner never previously seen.
Major firearm and ammunition retailers continue to regularly sell out of their inventory, unable to meet the massive demand for guns. Production halts in gun and ammo manufacturing have also played a crucial role in eroding inventories, with coronavirus halting the supply chain for metals such as copper.
More than 1,000 Americans across the country were surveyed for the Rasmussen poll.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has consistently reiterated his support for strict gun control measures, advocating for an outright ban of so-called “assault weapons” owned by tens of millions of Americans.
