Thousands Peacefully Protest For Gun Rights in Richmond

Tens of thousands gathered in Richmond, Va., on Monday to oppose new gun-control measures being pushed by Democrats in the state legislature.

The event’s peaceful procession marked a stark contrast to mainstream media portrayals of a rally filled with white nationalists and others prepared to do violence. The day’s rally concluded without a single incidence of mayhem or civil unrest.

Music, shared food, and chants of "USA!" made for a festive, fraternal atmosphere as marchers displayed their support for Second Amendment rights in Virginia. The march has been put on annually by the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), a pro-gun-rights group that has been at the center of the controversy around new gun-control legislation. Monday's protest, however, was by far the largest turnout, as gun-owning Virginians gathered from across the Commonwealth to advocate for their rights.
No violence at Virginia pro-gun rally as fearmongering falls flat

On Monday, tens of thousands of people descended on the state Capitol in Richmond, Virginia, to exercise the First Amendment in defense of their Second Amendment rights. But if all you’d done was follow liberal media reports and take cues from Democratic politicians, you would have expected this political protest, launched in response to Virginia Democrats' anti-gun legislative agenda, to end in violence and be made up of extremists.

Examples of hysterical media fearmongering abound...

Media Devastated Virginia Rally Went Off Perfectly
My best hope is they got enough signatures to remove that oath breaking, traitorous, POS from office and that both criminal & civil charges will be filed against him and the rest of their legislative body.

NPR, 1/20/20: Coronavirus In China: Over 200 Cases, Human-To-Human Transmission

New information is being reported about the new coronavirus that emerged in China in December and causes respiratory symptoms such as pneumonia — heightening concerns about its potential threat to humans.

On Monday, Chinese authorities reported that the total caseload has risen to over 200, roughly tripling the previous number. In addition, authorities in Wuhan, where the virus was first reported, confirmed a third death but did not release details except to say that the three victims, all men, had prior illnesses.

Health authorities believe that the virus probably originated in an as yet unidentified animal species and was transmitted to humans by contact with animals at a live animal market in the central city of Wuhan. ...

On Monday, Zhong Nanshan, the epidemiologist who leads the committee on the outbreak for China's National Health Commission, gave a TV interview stating there was evidence of human-to-human transmission.

China's National Health Commission also confirmed that there has been infection of medical staff. ...

This is unusual for China:
...On Monday, President Xi Jinping gave an interview to the state-run Xinhua News Agency in which he called on officials to "release outbreak information in a timely manner and deepen international cooperation." ...
And the rally ended peacefully.
AP and Reuters have non-hostile coverage of the rally:

AP, 1/20/20: Pro-gun rally by thousands in Virginia ends peacefully

...The size of the crowd and the expected participation of white supremacists and fringe militia groups raised fears that the state could see a repeat of the violence that exploded in 2017 in Charlottesville. But the rally concluded uneventfully around noon, and the mood was largely festive, with rally-goers chanting “USA!” and waving signs denouncing Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam.

Many protesters chose not to enter the designated rally zone, where Northam had instituted a temporary weapons ban, and instead packed the surrounding streets, many dressed in tactical gear and camouflage and carrying military-style rifles as they cheered on the speakers. ...

Authorities said that as of 1:40 p.m., there had been no reports of arrests or injuries. ...

Reuters, 1/20/20: Thousands of armed U.S. gun rights activists join peaceful Virginia rally

More than 18,000 armed gun-rights activists peacefully filled the streets around Virginia’s capitol building on Monday to protest gun-control legislation making its way through the newly Democratic-controlled state legislature. ...

Those wanting to enter Capitol Square to be near the morning’s speakers or to speak with lawmakers had to pass through a single entrance for security screening, leaving their guns outside. ...

Grayson County Sheriff Richard Vaughan, who is from a sanctuary county, held aloft a banner supporting the Second Amendment on a street in front of the capitol.

“Some of these bills being proposed are just unconstitutional and we will not enforce them,” Vaughan said. ...
I was watching the live Ruptly coverage on YouTube when it just stopped.

I am seeing it here on the same link I posted .. ACTUALY I guess if you push it to the end it says the live feed is over. I don't know why, it's only mid afternoon

One part of feed is showing a bunch of cops on bicycles standing with their bikes in the middle of an intersection sort of like they are blocking the road maybe

There we have it.  A well regulated militia working to secure a free state exercised their constitutional rights.  It was peaceful, orderly, and sent a clear message.  The founders would be proud.

Now, will the the Dems listen or will more exercising be needed for them to drop their infringing on the rights of the people?
