Virginia: Huge Pro-Gun Crowd Shows Up To Protest – Legislature Pulls Gun Confiscation Bill
Democrat gun grabbers are all talk until people who actually support the right to keep and bear arms stand up for their rights. Even as Virginia Governor Ralph Northam engages in propaganda against the citizens of Virginia in declaring a state of emergency because “armed militia groups plan to storm the capitol,” which is pure nonsense, the fact is that those pawns in the legislature backed down from their tyrannical gun confiscation legislation when hundreds, if not thousands of Virginians showed up in protest.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Thousands of NRA supporters turned out at Virginia’s capitol building on Monday in a show of opposition that pushed Democrats in the state legislature to moderate or abandon some of their strictest gun-control proposals.
“We are beyond impressed by today’s turnout,” D.J. Spiker, Virginia state director for the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon. “You can see the passion and enthusiasm that the citizens of Virginia have in joining us in this fight.”
The presence of gun-rights supporters at the state Senate judiciary committee hearing appeared to have an impact, as Democrats formally withdrew S.B. 16—a hotly-contested bill that would have effectively confiscated AR-15s and similar firearms—and moderated several other proposals. The NRA, however, said the changes were not enough and promised to continue to oppose the bills as they continue to move forward in the coming weeks.
“While there were some improvements to some of these bills, overall, it’s still bad legislation,” Spiker said. “Putting in more regulations and making it more onerous on the law-abiding citizens of Virginia is not something we stand for.”
Gun-rights proponents who spoke with the Free Beacon after the committee meeting adjourned said they believed the Democrats’ gun-control bills represent an attack on the Second Amendment. Christina Baker, a traveling emergency nurse who came to the hearing before a 13-hour shift, said she understood that there are good intentions at work but fears an “assault weapons” ban or poorly constructed law could make her a criminal.
The reality is that Governor Northam knows he has been beaten and he is now in full propaganda mode against the very people he is supposed to be serving while stabbing them in the back like a Judas.
I can only say this: Only one thing will stop him, and I’ll leave it up to the audience to guess what that is.
While the NRA as an organization is largely a joke, which has sold out the rights of the American people for decades and has been embroiled in corruption scandals, many of the people who are members of the NRA are American patriots and they are what is needed, not the NRA, to fight against the tyranny that is attacking their God-given and constitutionally protected rights.
Virginia is a testing ground. If Commie gun grabbers like Northam and company can win there, they can win anywhere. And the people know it.
Virginians are saying “No!” to these would be tyrants.
This is awesome news. I think Bloomberg poked a sleeping bear, and now the #Virginia legislature is scared. Hopefully firearm enthusiasts will be united, for all of America.

Democrats are willing to give up all of their constitutional rights for “safety”.

An absolutely incredible turnout by @NRA members in Richmond today. In contrast, abysmal showing by Moms Demand and anti-gun groups. Bloomberg has billions to buy politicians BUT @NRA members have the will to fight harder. #valeg #virginia pic.twitter.com/B4Pvkx8JC9

Ed Lynch, political analyst for WSLS in Roanoke, said that the impact of the turnout could have a longterm impact in the Old Dominion state, one that gun grabbers won’t like.
“That’s far more meaningful, far more far-reaching, and far more persuasive evidence that Virginians were certainly voting for change [in 2019] but they weren’t necessarily voting for this sort of change,” Lynch told the station.
D.J. Spiker, Virginia state director for the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, told the Free Beacon, “While there were some improvements to some of these bills, overall, it’s still bad legislation. Putting in more regulations and making it more onerous on the law-abiding citizens of Virginia is not something we stand for.”
Our forefathers were patient men… very patient men, but there is one line that they did not allow to be crossed and that was the confiscation of their arms.
The History of the War for Independence is rich with knowledge if only America will pay attention to what occurred and how our founding fathers responded.
Paul Revere didn’t ride crying “The British are coming!” to announce new taxes, but rather that they were coming to take our forefathers’ weapons and ammunition. The Bible also upheld the cries of our forefathers to keep and bear arms for the preservation of life and fighting off tyranny.

What Northam and those representing the people, whether Democrat or Republican don’t get is that they took an oath to protect the right to keep and bear arms and now they are being shown for the traitors they are, traitors worthy of death.
Lobby Day is a comin’!
