    This will be of interest to conservatives only:

    If you can possibly make it to Richmond on Monday, you should go there. Don't go armed.
    There will almost certainly be provocateurs, some consciously so, and some working for free,
    who will try to start trouble. Don't let them do it.

    A large, peaceful demonstration in defense of the Second Amendment will be a huge victory
    for our side. If there is violence, the mainstream media will, of course, slant things to make it
    look like it's our fault.

    The Virginia Citizens Defense League, which has organized the demonstration, does NOT want anyone to carry long arms. And if you carry a concealed (or open) handgun, you will not
    be allowed into the main demonstration area -- there will be metal detectors. So think of it
    as boarding an airline flight.

    For more information and the latest alerts, go to the Virginia Citizens Defense League website, at VCDL.org

    Stay safe, follow the traffic laws, and take LOTS of video.

    So it’s a gun free zone?

    That's weird. I thought the mantra was that guns keep people safe.

    The VA Governor (Coonman) has created the gun free zone by Executive order. Of course this order does not apply to his bodyguards.

    Okay, they will keep him safe, but who will keep the general punters safe. Wouldn't guns keep them safe?

    What part of the law do you object to? None of the weapons are for self defense by any means. Universal background checks are supported by the overwhelming majority and limiting handgun purchases to one per month is to prevent people from legally buying in bulk and selling on the black market which is how criminals get most of their guns. Pretty much common sense stuff.

    The governor did no such thing. Their legislatures wrote the laws and they do no such thing. You can still buy your hunting rifles and shotguns and handguns if you clear a background check.

    Trump has tweeted about this...

    Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!

    Do you even understand the discussion? Apparently not. The gun free zone created by Coonman (BY EXECUTIVE ORDER) is for the area in Richmond where the lobby day protest will take place on Monday. In addition to a gun free zone he has issued an executive order preventing the wearing of helmets.

    A public safety order for two days supported by the Virginia supreme Court. Do you not care a whit for the lives of the police that have to maintain order? Blue lives don't matter? Shame on all that promote possession of weapons of any sort at such a rally.

    A sign of our times when Americans have to demonstrate in favor of a constitutional right that many dems want to take away.

    There are more than enough gun laws today to try to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Adding more is nutty. And useless.

    I used to wonder which party is more dangerous to our rights And it was once a tough call . But because of the second amendment the dems have proven to be the most dangerous but this does not say the gop is no danger. For they are in other areas like privacy concerns and when people try to practice real journalism and speak truth to power.

    Can they still own rifles? Yep, just not ones that use gas to eject the shells allowing for rapid fire. Can you still own shotguns? Yep, just not ones with rotating shell canisters allowing for rapid fire. Can you still own handguns? Yep, you just can't buy them in bulk. Can you give me any reason why preventing bulk purchases hurts your plan to protect you and yours?

    Richmond is populated by thugs. Demonstrators going to and from the Capital to exercise their rights should be able to be armed for self defense in accordance with the law. You have taken a huge leap in logic to defend liberal hero Coonman by assuming that lawful protesters would attack police. Notice how these commies like Coonman talk about the people, yet are afraid of the people.

    Yes. I have the right to bear arms to thwart an armed invasion by tyrannical forces. Not so I can hunt, or kill a cat burglar. So I can fight off warlords if something catastrophic happens... or a dictator who would have me be subjected to what they think I "need".

    I guess you probably don't know that VA law only allows an emergency order setting up a gun free zone for areas used as shelters.

    So join the national guard and have at it. Let the rest of us live in relative safety.
    Edit
    And start fighting to reverse climate change if you're worried about catastrophic happening.

    Everyone out to Richmond on Monday!

    Why would any conservative in their right mind want to go to a Richmond, CA?
