There was a problem reporting this.
These gun nuts are a joke. They are so immature it is pathetic. They look like children who have not grown up and want to play "cops and robbers" or "war." I outgrew that when I was 12 years old.
A powerfuly supported, and very mature post, Christopher.
About as powerfully supported and mature as all those whiney gun nits crying because the Governor made them enter Capitol square without their steel pacifiers.
The gun nuts wouldn't take the governor's word... wouldn't take the court's ruling... and tried to appeal it even higher. If that's not childish inability to face reality I don't know what is.
It should go smoothly unless there are Antifa-type counter-protestors with weapons like blow torches, bats, blackjack type flashlights, etc as in Charlottesville. They know that any violent results will be blamed totally on the 2A crowd.....and the narrative from the MSM will be that the Antifa (yes, an oxymoron) troublemakers were the peaceful heroes.
My belief that it should go smoothly is because I believe the State Police will do a much, much better job than the Charlottesville Police of separating those coming to deliberately seek confrontation.
ANTIFA is a defensive group of people... They do NOT initiate clashes... You are badly mistaken... ~~~ Bob
That is the funniest thing you have EVER posted here. Well played!
Yes, Antifa is an oxymoron. The only likelihood for violence is if counter-protestors come seeking confrontation.
If you want to avoid confrontation, you would schedule your counter-protest on a different day.
For clarification, I am not disputing their right to assemble on the specific day of the pre-planned event of your opponent. But one can be absurdly naive about the motivations of those doing so.
Janis Peace commenting: I would not want to be anywhere near this situation tomorrow. I understand some extremist have been arrested which is probably a good thing. Having said that, it is now all over the National News. Those who may not have known about this now know. Those who won't show up on a profile might just want to stir up trouble. We all know there are people who just want to rumble. The "gates" don't look very sturdy to me from what I can see on the news. I can't imagine a lot of people trying to get into the Capitol Grounds near the same time. Those who have guns will be on the outside and those without will be on the inside. I hope they have a lot of "people" watching over this whole situation because it has been built up to be a big deal. Somebody may want to make this a "very big deal" and how can they all be controlled? I just hope it doesn't get out of control in the first place.
Janis Peace - " Those who have guns will be on the outside and those without will be on the inside." You have painted an interesting picture of a potential "target practice". Yes, like you, I wish that everyone would stay at home.
Especially thugs who think they need to be armed to be taken seriously... ~~~ Bob
Janis Peace commenting: Linda, I guess I just think other than "human security" things could get out of control very quickly should a small group of people want it to happen. Someone came by today and we both agreed "the gates" didn't seem very sturdy to handle a large group. I then added, what if someone simply threw something over the fencing like a weapon or something along those lines? I'm sure there is a lot involving security those who might try something don't know so I just hope the National Buildup doesn't cause anyone to get hurt.
An interesting side note: One of the 3 neo-Nazi 's arrested in MD is an illegal alien. Now who is it that is fighting to keep the illegal aliens out of the U.S.? And who is it that is fighting for open borders and letting in illegal aliens, like this neo-Nazi ?
I have on good authority that at the height of the rally, a hundred black UN helicopters will appear, carrying giant vacuum cleaners that will suck up the guns carried by anyone within two blocks of the Capitol. At that point, a mob of illegal immigrants will stream from behind buildings and attack the panicked crowd with burrito bombs. Atheists in the crowd will then throw off their MAGA T-shirts and caps and prevent priests from giving last rites to the fallen. Adios, beloved USA.
Come to think of it, a big burrito would really taste pretty good while standing out there in the cold.
Bean burritos can give you gas. No open flame please! [scared]
Beef burrito - only a few beans in it - but lots of tomato, lettuce, brown rice and salsa. Methane should not be a major issue.
Ken, gotta love it. Burrito bombs. As we all know they do release those SBD "chemical weapons" That will disperse a crowd in a sec. Pull some food trucks up at 10th, Marshall and Broad in front of city hall. They could make good bucks.
Saddam Hussein's mustard gas ain't got nothin' on the emissions that come eight hours after eating at Chipotle.
Democrats, the party of taking citizens guns, opening borders to illegals, raising taxes and killing babies.
If you're Racist, KKK, Blackface, Democrat Governor Ralph "Coonman" Northam of Virginia, you can unconstitutionally ban guns at the state Capital, but if you're a Patriotic Republican President like Trump, failure to send guns to a foreign country in a timely manner makes you a criminal and you must be removed from office. Go figure. Additionally, according to Democrats, defending the borders of a country is xenophobic. No borders, no walls, no Ukraine at all.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION TROLL ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I wonder what so many older white men are afraid of ??
interesting question, Walt....what are you afraid of?
Gov. Northam will "win" no matter what happens tomorrow. If all goes well and there is no violence, he will be praised for taking adequate preventive measures.
Should there be any trouble, he will be praised for demanding yet more controls over the citizenry and encouraged to call for more restrictions on the 2nd Amendment.
Well played, sir! 🤨
The Governor has expected people to be indecent and that is shameful. To expect decency is to allow the evil to expose themselves, and that is how a free society should live. He clearly has the power to react to evil yet he uses power to dispel the peaceful.
No... He thought to himself, "10,000 armed & angry white men??? What could go wrong???"... This wasn't exactly rocket science... ~~~ Bob
Been doing it since 1994 without incident. Is that true Bob? And now look
Every VCDL event I have ever attended has been incident-free, the organization has been praised by several law enforcement agencies and you'll be hard-pressed to find nicer people anywhere.
As a member of the VCDL, I can tell you that the pro-gun folks certainly are not just old white men. Plenty of younger folks, minorities of many backgrounds, women and even openly gay folks.
You see, the basic right of self-defense applies to all citizens. Freedom works like that.
J,Mark Wittkofski, your unwanted opinion is what I have grown to expect from all Trump hating, gun control freaks, haters of old dead white Southern men's statues, and in general, sore losing left-wingers.
Have a great day at the Rally .... I don't have a reason to go myself … I don't own a gun, but as Kaine, of Kaine and Unable Fame once said about abortion, "I personally don't like abortion, but I think others should have them if they want too" ….. and guns are mentioned in the Constitution, and abortion is not. Hallelujah, and period.
The constant use of the Charlottesville example fails to mention the Charlottesville city government, mayor and Gov. McAuliffe’s part in handcuffing the police by not letting them keep the extremists from both sides apart! The lesson from that debacle has helped make sure there will likely be no such confrontations on lobby day tomorrow.
Yes, Larry Eavey, the Charlottesville disaster was completely avoidable. Northam, however, is desperately working to save his legacy from remembering him as the buffoon he was several years ago.
Northam is doing his job in this instance much better than old Terry Mac did with Charlottesville and yes doing a good job is a way to improve your legacy!
And we know the extremists are the nutty people in the Democratic Party who main mission is to destroy our freedoms of speech. Right to the point people.
Communism enslaves people by force—- Socialism enslaves people by votes.
In both aspects billionaires still lives like Royalty the people on the top never suffer the consequences of Communism and Socialism.
Prove me wrong
The gun laws will all pass and gun nuts will realize it change he’a very little about how they go about their daily business. It just makes all Virginians safer.
It seems that gun grabbing left is hoping for an incident with all their fear mongering. Wonder if the governor and his minions will even come to work Monday?.
I don’t know. When Rump imposes the same restrictions on his rallies is THAT fear-mongering?
Big difference Flaky …… the protesters at Trump's rally are extreme idiots like those who do the killing with guns are. Hallelujah, Checkmate, and period.
Oops Tracy! I think you have a typo. It's the supportive Trump attendees at his rally's that are the extreme idiots.
How about the Trump supporters who, at his rallies, chant "Jew-S-A, Jew-S-A" at the media, Peters?
haha... Spacy Peter never noticed that protestors are never admitted to Rump's rallies. He only goes where he's welcomed.
The response to Virginia Beach was an assault weapons ban and universal background checks. Gun grabber logic for something done with handguns, purchased over a year apart, with both state and federal background checks. And all the anti gunners go, oh, yeah. They conveniently leave out that the building was a gun free zone, which makes it occupants helpless targets.
Do nothing about real causes. Do nothing about real crime. Much too hard. Attack people who obey the law. That's the liberal ticket.
There is no “attack” on people who obey the law. That is just gun nut rhetoric and the good people of VA know it. Unless you wish to elaborate, Bob.
All that inflammatory rhetoric does is make normal people see that common sense gun control laws are JUST what VA needs.
Tyrone will disrupt
If people are threatened with use of force to enforce a law that is unjust and infringes on rights, that is most certainly an attack. Almost every one of the proposed gun control laws is exactly that.
I spoke today with a gentleman here from California. He admonished us to NOT let Virginia go the way of the Golden State. They now require a background check just to buy ammunition and some of their police officers have been bragging about being able to disarm their citizens.
If some of the bills being put forth are signed into law later this year, Virginia will have some gun laws that are WORSE than what they have in California. It is no wonder people are freaking out.
Ya' gotta love these NRA whack jobs talking about dealing with the root causes of gun violence... Bottom line??? If you think that they are stingy in supporting programs that support kids who are born into poverty and have little chance of escaping it just imagine if they were told that it would cost half a trillion$$$ to restore the mental health services that have been axed over the last 40 years??? Oh, and that half a trillion means that everyone's taxes are going up... Yeah, GUN NATION wants it both ways... They want ZERO gun control laws and they don't want their taxes to go up??? It comes down to this, GUNNIES... A few sane laws or your taxes going up??? YOU PCK... ~~~ Bob
The Democrats want insane laws AND higher taxes. If they get their way, we shall get both......but that's what you want. You ought to be happy.
Well, that's not true, Jeff... Making such a sweeping charge that Democrats "want higher taxes" is pure BS.. Actually, Democrats have been the party of FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY going back to WW II,,, Yup, in spite of the Republican BIG LIES it has been the Republicans who have run deficits up and Democrats the party that has brought them down... Google up 'Deficits since WW II" and get an education about which party is the one that is most CONSERVATIVE when it comes to taking care of the economy... ~~~ Bob
Ralph Northam himself DOES want higher taxes. He is not alone in that regard.
As for fiscal responsibility, neither party has a great record on that issue -- or we would not have 22 trillion in debt + another 150 trillion in future unfunded liabilities.
Also, FWIW, cities and states under leftist Democrat hegemony are drowning in red ink. Most Republicans are slightly less evil in that regard, but they would be trying to hike taxes too if they could get away with it.
Substituting borrow & spend for tax & spend won't really make us any better as a country.
Bob Greene -- Not liberal. Leftist.
A true liberal, in the classical sense, believes in liberty.
“As gun-rights supporters plan peaceful rally in Richmond, state warns extremists could pose threat” ….. and the extremist on the left are going to make sure something happens so they can use this, and not always have to depend on Charlottesville where all the peaceniks came to demonstrated their love and acceptance for others who opinons differ from theirs. Hallelujah, and period.
Tracy Peter, your unwanted opinions are tiring, boring, and unnecessary
He's DELUSIONAL, Drake, and only parrots Russian DISINFORMATION... THE END... ~~~ Bob
J,Mark Wittkofski ….. you have to be embarrassed to be included in the same swamp as Flaky Drakie and ~~~Bob … Their unwanted opinons are really tiring, boring and unnecessary. Hallelujah, Checkmate, and period.
