    This looks like a do'over of the "Twin Peaks" in WACO, TEXAS. It is a classic set'up and a perfect Trap. The only way the Gun Group could get a win.......is to totally cancel the rally. There was never any hope that the Firearms Restriction laws would be aborted.

    The spark is near, I fear. I have been closely watching this as I have contacts in Virginia. It's a powder keg at the moment.

    That's why we started the 2A Sanctuary county movement here, hoping to get out ahead of things. At the very least it will send a message to those in our capital that we are serious and mean business.

    I don't know the demographics of Virginia. Are the rural people being railroaded by big city Democrats?

    Why don't they put this on the ballot in the general election, and let the people vote on it, and decide? It might not solve anything, but it would give one side or the other a true mandate on what the people want.

    Not likely that will happen. Government being responsive to the will of the people? :huh: What was I thinking?

    I believe Virginia is similar to California. The Communists control the large population centers thereby controlling the majority of the votes.

    West Virginia has offered the 2A Sanctuary counties in Virginia the ability to succeed and become part of W Virginia.

    Now wouldn't that be something to see.

    MACHINE GUNS............???????

    FBI nabs three alleged neo-Nazis with machine gun ahead of Virginia gun rally

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-...gun-ahead-of-virginia-gun-rally-idUSKBN1ZF2B3

    According to a federal official, the men were arrested near Baltimore and were believed to be heading toward Richmond, Virginia, where a pro-gun rally is planned for next week. Lemley has been charged with transporting a machine gun and other firearms charges, and he and Bilbrough are charged with transporting and harboring "an alien unlawfully present in the United States." Mathews also faces firearms charges.

    The governor has decreed that the Capitol
    The governor and this legislature were elected by heavily populated counties around the D. C. area -not the more rural areas where their delegates are Republican.
    His excuse for the executive order is that they have received "credible threats" that there are those coming from out of state and mentioned white nationalists (Nazis) while failing to mention that Atifa has also posted that they will be coming. However, one Richmond, Va native has said that Antifa are NOT in favor of the gun control laws being pushed through the legislature.
    Also, laws are being proposed that (a) Va electoral college votes be awarded to the winner of the national popular vote; (2) governor to be elected by majority of votes in congressional districts, not by statewide majority; (3) allows felons and those declared mentally incompetent to vote; (4) eliminate photo id requirements for voting; (5) increase the term limit of the governor from 4 to 8 years. He's making sure that Bloomberg"s millions poured into the recent election are paying off. Please pray for all the patriot's in Virginia who are standing up for the Constitution and our rights. - and that the Lobby Day and those attending the pro gun rally will be safe.

    Yes. It was the same when I lived in New York State years ago. Whatever the NY City folks wanted, they got. They could simply out vote the rest of the state. "Upstate" NY folks always wanted to secede from NYC and become our own state. They would never have let us, they needed our tax money to fund them.

    I would bet it is like that in most states. You can bet that Illinois is ruled by Chicago. Maryland is ruled by Baltimore. Nevada is ruled by Las Vegas. I saw a frightening statistic, and it follows the Pareto Principle (80-20 rule). There are 3000 counties in the United States; 50% of the population lives in 146 of them. I would like to vet that to see if it is true.

    The governor has been called to answer for his declaration of an emergency. The house and senat want to know what threats were and who made them because the governor doesn't have legal authority to do what he did...
    The plot thickens.

    Spoke with a Virginian yesterday and they are building walls around the capital. Apparently not just barricades, but high walls. I have yet too see anything about that.

    They probably went out and got guns to. What about that? You think they would have the hypocrisy to defend themselves with the thing they are trying to ban?

    If they build the wall big enough and strong enough to keep the good folks out - it will keep those parasites in!

    Apparently the 'wall' thing was a bit exaggerated, it looks like 6 foot chain link fence surrounding the capital.

    Monday will be interesting.

    The fence is actually a great idea. It funnels the places the politicians sneak in and out, makes it easier for the protestors to concentrate their numbers where they can confront the slimy critters.

    I wonder if President Trump called down there and told them ""Whatever you do, don't fence that area off!"

    Do they forget so soon? The last time someone built walls around Richmond Grant blew it full of holes with cannon.

    Found this, but cannot verify its authenticity. Too late for me to go searching to validate so posting "as is" validity unknown.

    I saw this somewhere last night. Haven't yet verified it. But it sure makes sense to me that this is the play the libs will use. Patriot act was set up for exactly this type thing.

    Maybe somewhat unrelated, but I feel like this ties in to some regard, so I'm going to post it here. Just read it from ZeroHedge. It's the first I've heard of the GPS exercise, and the first I've heard of anything in Oklahoma, and the first I've heard of the Night Vision tubes being taken. It does sound to me like something big is about to take place. Hoping I'm totally out in left field somewhere.

    To all going to support our fellow citizens in VA.....be careful and have an exit strategy or 3. Look for the Appleseed folks wearing red if you need anything. I'll be the bearded guy next to a shrek.
