They are afraid. Keep them afraid.
RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia lawmakers voted Friday to ban firearms at the state Capitol, the first in what’s expected to be many contentious gun votes in coming weeks.
Newly empowered Democrats in the General Assembly voted to ban guns at the Capitol and a legislative office building, saying the move was needed to protect public safety.
Public officials have expressed concerns about planned Jan. 20 rallies that are set to draw huge crowds of pro-gun and gun-control advocates. Gun advocates from around Virginia and even out of state have pledged to turn out in force to highlight their resistance to proposed gun-control measures.
“The overall goal here is to protect and ensure the safety of our members and of the people that are in our building coming and going,” Democratic Del. Marcus Simon said before the vote.
The ban would apply to lawmakers in addition to the general public.
So here it is. They know people are angry and they know people are going to show up with guns open carrying. My advice to everyone going is to ignore this law and carry anyway. You can not show these tyrants that you are not going to comply with their illegal legislation by showing up that day and complying with their first law.
I know this has been a controversial topic. One group wants you to show up dressed like Alex P. Keaton, young republican so as not not make the anti-gun people scared, The other group says that is exactly what the hell you should be doing. I belong in that group. These people have to be shown just how close they are . Your best light blue button down shirt, khaki pants and penny loafers is not going to bring that message home. Showing up looking like you are ready for the fight they are trying to start will. The NRA and even the VCDL will tell you different. well, the first is useless and the second has to say that because its good PR for the on the fence fudds. Do it anyway.
A lot of people are watching this and they will never back down until they see just how ready people are. None of us here live in VA but we do support them. If some or most of the gun owners of VA show up at the rally already compliant then I have no more help to offer. They have decided the boot isn’t so bad after all and my advice to the rest of you would be to move to KY or WV.
