For a week or so leading up to it all the talk was that the gathering of pro-2nd Amendment folk in Richmond on Monday, January 20th was going to be a bloody affair. The patriots were coming en masse – and they were coming armed. Antifa was threatening to come too. Police were preparing for a showdown. The patriots were there of course because of the threats by Virginia Governor Northam to confiscate weapons with new legislation the new Democrat majority was set to pass. The Governor and NBC news went on to label veterans who joined the pro-gun rally as “domestic terror threats.”[i] But all that was to happen ….did not. And we thank our Father in Heaven that peace finally prevailed. Here’s is some of an article by Mike Adams, published in both News Target and The Common Sense Show.
“The overwhelming numbers of armed patriots at the pro-2A rally in Richmond, Virginia has apparently caused Antifa terrorists and deep state operatives to back down from their plans to instigate staged violence for CNN’s cameras. While an estimated ‘tens of thousands’ of armed patriots peacefully demonstrated at the Virginia capitol today, there were no reports of Antifa terrorists on the scene. Antifa simply could not be found. It’s clear they decided to back down. Remember that over the last several days, patriots have been urged to roll their cameras at all times in order to document the scene and catch Antifa terrorists or deep state operatives trying to instigate violence. Patriots have also arrived armed, carrying literally thousands of rifles and pistols, sending a message to the deep state and its Antifa terrorism wing that violence will not be tolerated at this rally, despite the wishes of the radical Left and its anti-America media mouthpieces like NBC News or CNN.”
It is estimated that about 50,000 attended the rally – perfectly peaceful and very well armed. Adams finished with this. “When the radical Left can’t carry out their schemes in secret — when they are forced to operate in broad daylight while tens of thousands of people are watching and recording video — they are unable to pull off their false flag operations. And that’s a huge victory for America, for liberty and for all of humanity.”[ii]
The patriot group was joined by law enforcement personnel supporting the cause of the Constitution. Grayson County Sheriff Richard Vaughan gave voice to this sentiment. “If the bills go through as proposed, they will not be enforced. They are unconstitutional. We support upholding the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Virginia. That’s what we will do.”[iii] Simple like that, I guess.
