    Exactly claims credible evidence but refuses to cite the source. If it’s supposedly on the Internet like he claims that it’s open for anybody to see.

    I wouldn't bet against you. I am pretty sure they want the pro gun group disarmed so they are easy prey for the antifa they hired to harass us and hit us with bicycle locks and cups of concrete. Guns will be banned...black masks will be encouraged.

    My best guess is that this is
    • designed to create fear and hysteria among his constituency, creating support for his actions
    • a form of red flag law enaction, restricting rights due to 'pre-crime' concerns
    • a dogwhistle to the 'antifa' set to bring them out in force
    • a win-win for his forces of evil - nothing happens, he saved the world / something happens, he was justified and prevented it being worse
    I could go on, but at this point what difference does it make really?

    They don't want their paid operative to get lit up when they start throwing crap. One side is disarmed, one side is encouraged. One side is going to be made victims, one side is having a safety blanket laid out for them

    “I believe them when they say this is a peaceful event -- that’s what democracy is,” Northam said. “Unfortunately, I have unleashed something much larger, something I may not be able to control.”

    Fixed it for him.

    They are declaring Lobby Day to be a Nazi event ahead of time. It doesn't matter who shows up, they will now be Nazis if they oppose the Governor.

    The credible evidence is that he will be bussing ANTIFA in. 100% chance of violence that way.

    The interesting thing there is the fact that I have seen posts stating that ANTIFA is against what the VA GOV is doing. I can't link them as I can't remember where I saw it, possibly on arfcom.

    The enemy of my enemy....


    Bless the folks embarking on the trip. VA.gov has underestimated the hornet's nest it has kicked.

    Wonder if those in charge will allow “milkshakes” and other such concoctions that left-wingers have been known to use to be snuck in? They also had steel toe boots, riot gloves, etc. It will be interesting to see who gets caught with what and if it’s even reported correctly.

    Is that retard really that retarded?
    VCDL says 100k people. I can see that happening, but lets say just 10% of that show up.
    If even a fraction of that 10% tell the Gov to pound sand and bring firearms anyway, ( something I would bet on) the Gov is in a world of ----.

    If it goes to shootin at any point the place is doomed. Don't care how many snipers or swats or batons they have, it will be complete chaos. What does a sniper do when 10,000 people are running all around raising hell?
    I tell ya what they do. They circle the wagons around the Governor and the city burns.

    And I bet the cops are pissed. Not because of the rally guys, but because the Governor has the balls to throw them under the bus with this giant CF that he owns.
    Cops really hate to be overwhelmed. I don't anticipate they'll be real receptive to the idea of 200 of them going up against 20,000...who most likely have 'offensive capabilities' and a bad attitude.

    Saw this earlier tonight. If this is accurate, why in the world wouldn't a judge strike this down and/or issue a warrant for his arrest???



    Frankly, I realllllly hope, people show up in mass numbers armed in plain defiance of these illegal & unconstitutional acts.

    As with the Feds, the judges are part of the government, so they are the government deciding for itself what are the limits on their power. The people need to put a stop to this, without going through the government. The Lobby Day rally on the 20th is just what is needed.

    out of curiosity, would burning down the governor's mansion a negative or positive thing? because with 100k people, there won't be enough cops to even remotely control them if they don't want to be controlled.
    if you combine all the police in richmond, and add all the state police, they'll still be outnumbered 4:1. and there's no way they're going to be able to pull that many cops in.
    Personally, i think the mansion and the capitol being left in ashes would be a fine political statement for somebody else to make :)

    The dems are already filling the heads of their mentally weak constituency with lies that they will absolutely believe are 100% true. I know a guy at work that thinks this is about slavery for Gods sake.

    No, as in we are against anti-gun legislation because we want to bring back black slavery.

    I would suggest any Patriot going to this thing (I wish I could) to go ARMED. Not with a firearm but something other than your fists that hasn't been banned for the rally. Pepper spray, tasers, stun guns, anything. I'm 100% convinced that leftist provocateurs will attack.

    Edit: I've been informed that ALL weapons are banned. Maybe a can of pepper spray with a misleading label?

    Governor McTyrant started his whole rant listing that all weapons were banned, and then tagged on that firearms were included. Bats, sticks, projectiles...

    Everyone going needs to keep a sharp eye out, and make sure you stick with people you know and trust wherever you can. Knowing how the VA govt. wants to paint this event, and the powers behind the curtain, they're going to want this to go badly.

    I fully expect some sort of paid opposition, antifa, or false flag to happen, so that all of the patriots can be painted as domestic terrorists, racists, etc. Photograph and film the antifa and anti-gun protesters wherever possible.

    I hope a large group of folks on our side will be available to provide long distance support if things go bad... A contingent outside the protest, ready to aid in case this is the trap so many of us think it is.
