Tomorrow is decisive
Here is my prediction
Some riots would happen
The event would end peacfully
Dems would pass anti 2ndA rights laws, regardless
No compliance.
Dems would loose the next elections
Laws would be reversed the next election

I'll take that bet.

I'm with you until "Dems would lose the next election." We'll see in November.

I'll take "some people did some things" for $500, Alex. :biggrinjester:

I actually saw an opinion the other day that suggested a leftist plant would pop off a few shots at this thing, giving police the justification to start a conflict that ends in a lot of arrests and gives all the press attention the dems need to force even more anti-gun laws through. A little out there IMO, but...then again...maybe not too far out there... :leaving

I agree. These idiots will go to the polls and pull democrat again as if it will be different this time. Either a lot of Republicans stayed home or the people of Virginia are all living a fantasy and voted democrat thinking this would not happen. I am going with Living a Fantasy, it is a blue state.

One of the neo nazi's arrested by the feds in advance of the rally is actually an illegal immigrant.

THIS TWITTER THREAD has some disturbing information, regarding tomorrow in Virginia:


....including the fact that the FAA has apparently declared the airspace over Richmond as a "national defense airspace", restricting access to it until after Monday. AND, fedgov’t has one of these loitering overhead:

This is NOT good. Note that one of the first 3 bills their dictator signed into law yesterday was the one making it unlawful to carry a firearm to a public gathering.

And finally:

It almost seems that the government is stoking the fire.

The lame stream media is for sure. They had good ole race baiter Al on this morning trying to turn it into a race issue. He was crying about them scheduling this thing on MLK day. They wanted to draw an analogy to the Charleston thing in 2017.

It is a race issue. Remember the racist roots of the dumbocrats post CW1. It's just that as is typical of the commie/socialists they are projecting their racist roots onto the law abiding 2A community. The Jim Crow party, the party of the Robert Byrd wing of the KKK calling this racist. They don't even know the meaning of the word anymore.

I have a local Texas friend who has gone to Richmond to join the rally tomorrow. He said that information is circulating that 7 bus loads of anti-fa will arrive tomorrow wearing MAGA hats and NRA gear. Northam warned that he wasn't going to let this rally turn into another Charlottesville but this scenario, minus the Pro gun clothing is exactly what happened there.

I guess we'll see tomorrow if that information is accurate or just another circulating conspiracy theory. I'm hoping my buddy will share live videos of the event. If he does and I can share them, I will. I trust his version of what is happening more than the media.

I ran across this article this evening:
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/0 ... ond-rally/
Major Antifa Website Publishes Pro-Gun Op-Ed From Virginia Resident Planning to Attend Richmond Rally
It’s Going Down, arguably the largest Antifa website on the internet, has published a lengthy op-ed in support of gun rights from a Virginia militant leftist planning to attend the Second Amendment rally in Richmond this Monday.

The anonymously penned piece titled “With Neither Tyrants Nor Fascists: An Anarchist Analysis Of The Growing Fight Against Anti-Gun Legislation In Virginia,” makes a surprisingly reasonable argument for why they oppose anti-gun legislation and mocks the theories that Antifa is planning to go to the rally just to instigate problems.
Now, I don’t know if Gateway Pundit has been sucked into a hoax or not, but I do know that there are factions of AntiFa that are very much pro-gun rights. They believe in those rights because—rightly or wrongly—they recognize that the kind of revolutionary makeover of the country that they want is not possible if The People (themselves included) cannot be armed. In that regard, they are not only like us in believing that private ownership of arms preserves the right of revolution described in our Declaration if Independence, but for the same kinds of logical reasons. They just want a different set of results than we do.

I’m NOT defending AntiFa. In fact, I can’t stand them. But what I am saying is that, on gun rights, they partially get it. I ALSO wholeheartedly believe that, if they were ever victorious in their quest, one of the very first things they’d do upon taking power would be to outlaw gun ownership for everyone else, so as to cement their changes.
