Virginia GOP House Leader Promises to ‘Stand United’ with Democrats a Day Before Gun Rights Rally

The Republican Party is capitulating, as usual.

Virginia House Republicans are siding with Governor Blackface Northam, who has demonized gun rights activists as terrorists and revoked the 2nd Amendment before tomorrow’s 2nd Amendment rally outside of the Capitol.

House Republican Leader Todd Gilbert released a statement this weekend confirming that he would “stand united” with Democrats against supposed hate mongers and white supremacists who the governor and the fake news media have claimed would attend the event.

“So there’s no mistake, this is my message to any group that would subvert this event: you are not welcome here. While we and our Democratic colleagues may have differences, we are all Virginians and we we will stand united in opposition to any threats of violence or civil unrest from any quarter,” Gilbert said in a statement.

Gilbert’s entire statement can be seen here:

Gov. Northam, aided by the deep state and fake news media, has created the narrative that hate groups, anti-government militias, and white supremacists are planning to commit acts of violence at tomorrow’s rally. He has provided no evidence to the public that backs up his assertion.

“No weapons will be allowed on Capitol grounds,” Northam said as he announced his promulgated state of emergency last week. “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.”

Because of the tremendous cowardice of the Republican Party of Virginia, that phony narrative has been strengthened by the political entity that is supposed to stand for the 2nd Amendment.

Gilbert has followed the lead of Rep. Nick Freitas, the libertarian Virginia delegate who pays lip service to the 2nd Amendment but then throws gun owners under the bus when it suits him:

Virginia state delegate Nick Freitas took to social media on Saturday to virtue signal and echo Governor Blackface Northam’s baseless propaganda about “hate groups” attending tomorrow’s gun rights rally at the Capitol.

“It has been rumored that certain hate groups may try to show up and hijack the 2A rally on Monday,” Freitas wrote. “This rally is for those of us who want to defend 2A rights for EVERY law abiding citizen. Those who peddle in hate and racial supremacy will find no support or aid from us.”

“We defend everyone’s right to defend themselves and will not allow these groups to pervert that message under any circumstance. So if you are a member of a hate group…do us all a favor and crawl back to your parents basement. You are a threat to our citizens and our liberties and we don’t want you in our beloved Commonwealth,” he added…

By releasing his statement on social media, Freitas has re-affirmed Northam’s lies and demonization of the rally scheduled to take place tomorrow. This career politician is doing Virginia gun owners no favors with his lack of a backbone.

The Republican Party of Virginia is abandoning gun owners, and doing Gov. Northam’s bidding heading into tomorrow’s contentious rally. That is not good news for 2nd Amendment proponents, as tyrants of various stripes are all uniting to steamroll their core freedoms.

Smith & Wesson Stepping Up Production to Meet Record Setting Astronomical Demand for New Guns

They’re stepping up production.

Published

on

One of the biggest gun manufacturers in the United States is pledging to step up gun production as demand for new firearms soars to astronomical proportions. Smith & Wesson is pledging to boost their manufacturing to “maximum capacity” to meet unprecedented demand.

Gun sales in 2020 have crushed the records set in any previous year by a hefty margin, with the combination of the coronavirus and nationwide race riots aided and abetted by the Democratic Party serving to convince millions of Americans who have never owned guns before that they need to arm themselves.

As we’ve seen before during these surge periods, these results reflect that despite our record numbers in market share growth, consumer demand for our products during the quarter still exceeded our internal manufacturing capacity levels,” said Mark Smith, CEO of the firearms company that was founded in 1852, in a call on Thursday. “We’re continuing to ramp up…. We’re going to go to maximum capacity.

The company moved almost 600,000 guns from a period between May and July, smashing its records and depleting its existing inventory of newly manufactured guns.

When we get into these surge environments like this, and as you can see from the [gun background check numbers] we’ve never seen one quite this high, the demand in the industry just outstrips the industry’s ability to supply,” Smith said. “And we’re no different. You can look at the inventory numbers from us and from some of the other firearms, retailers, and manufacturers, and I think we’re just out of inventory.

Elevating existing manufacturing levels could prove critical to lowering surging prices for firearms, as retailers are unable to match demand. Ammunition continues to sell for record-setting prices, signaling a need for ammunition manufacturers to meet sky-high demand as well.

Smith and Wesson manufacturers a wide variety of popular civilian firearms, including AR-15 style rifles, a multitude of pistols and revolvers, and .22 rimfire rifles.
