The fake emergency declaration is being challenged.

Virginia sued over Second Amendment rally gun ban

Two gun rights groups planning to host a rally of 130,000 supporters Monday at the Virginia state Capitol have sued to repeal Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s ban on guns, even for those with permits.

“Governor Northam is behaving like the royal governors who long preceded him. He has arrogantly and brazenly tried to restrict the rights protected to Virginians by the First and Second Amendments,” said Erich Pratt, senior vice president of Gun Owners of America.

His group is joining the other rally organizer, Virginia Citizens Defense League, in pushing to win back gun rights on Capitol grounds for the Monday “lobby day” when members planned to press lawmakers to reject a wave of gun control legislation sailing through the Senate.

Lexington And Concord Redux In Virginia - Chuck Baldwin

From an email I got from Chuck Baldwin


some things I don't agree with that he puts forth, but the Virginia issue, this just might be the 2nd shot heard around the world


Lexington And Concord Redux In Virginia

By Chuck Baldwin
January 16, 2020


Tragically, most Americans do not have any idea what it was that actually triggered America’s War for Independence. The primary reason was not “taxation without representation,” or taxes of any kind, for that matter. And it was certainly not because our Founding Fathers were a bunch of anti-government extremists or demon-possessed puppets of the Illuminati.


For the most part, our Founding Fathers were good and honorable men of devout Christian faith. They were mostly educated men of means who had much to lose by supporting America’s War for Independence. They were schooled in both the Holy Scriptures and the principles of Natural Law. They were men who valued liberty above safety and wealth and were willing to sacrifice their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” to be able to bequeath the principles of liberty to their posterity.


“The shot heard ’round the world” in the pre-dawn hours of April 19, 1775, on Lexington Green, Massachusetts, was probably inevitable, but the causes of its occurrence cannot be denied. The primary mission of the British Crown that morning was to confiscate the firearms of the colonists in Lexington and Concord. It sent 800 military troops to fulfill that mission.


Warned of the approaching British troops by Paul Revere and William Dawes, a little over 70 men (mostly from the congregation of the Church at Lexington, pastored by Jonas Clark) stood on Lexington Green, muskets in arm, to face the troops. The rest, as they say, is history.


What is undeniable is that decades of grievances of the colonies against British injustice and oppression did NOT bring the colonies to open rebellion against the Crown. For decades, the colonies peacefully petitioned, redressed, reasoned, appealed, pleaded and remonstrated with the British Crown without bloodshed. Even the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1770, did not bring the colonies to arms against their government. But when British troops marched on Lexington and Concord to confiscate the firearms of the colonists, the line between peaceful protest and armed revolution was crossed.


Now, almost 245 years later, the government of the Commonwealth of Virginia is threatening to cross that line again. As we speak, the State of Virginia is attempting to pass laws that would forcefully confiscate the arms of the people of that sovereign State: specifically, semi-automatic rifles AND pistols.


Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is backing a proposed ban on “assault weapons” that would prohibit the sale of many semi-automatic firearm designs like the AR-15, but would grandfather existing owners of the weapons so long as they are registered — or else face surrender.
His proposed bill did note, “The provisions of this act may result in a net increase in periods of imprisonment or commitment.” (Source)


In fact, Governor Northam has asked the Virginia legislature for an additional $250,000 to fund the anticipated incarceration of Virginians who refuse to comply with the State’s gun confiscation ban and an additional $4.8 million budget to fund a special 18-member SWAT team dedicated to confiscating the arms of the people of Virginia. A U.S. Congressman from Virginia, Donald McEachin, is urging Governor Northam to call out the Virginia National Guard to confiscate the arms of the Virginians.


Predictably, hyper gun-grabber and billionaire Jewish Zionist Michael Bloomberg is throwing his money and support behind the Virginia governor’s efforts.


Make no mistake about it: This has the potential to be a Lexington and Concord redux.
Get a grip on this folks! This is happening in the land of Washington and Jefferson—the land of Lee and Jackson. This is happening in Virginia. I lived in Virginia for over two years; our oldest child—our only daughter—was born in Virginia.


As one can imagine, the freedom-loving people of Virginia are NOT taking this lying down. Ninety-one counties and eleven cities in the State have declared themselves to be in open rebellion against these tyrannical proposals from Richmond. The vast majority of sheriffs around the State have said they will NOT enforce these gun confiscation laws, if they are passed. And the sales of firearms in Virginia have exploded.


I encourage readers to watch this testimony from a Virginian who was a former active duty soldier and Marine and is currently a Major in the Marine Corps Reserve and a federal police officer, regarding the resolve of Virginians to maintain their right to keep and bear arms.


This coming Monday, January 20 (the day in between the birthdays of Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson, by the way), 100,000 Virginians are expected to descend on the Virginia legislature in Richmond to protest the proposed gun confiscation acts—acts that can only be described as acts of war against the people of that State.


A sizeable number of states with tyrannical gun-grabbing governors and State legislatures are watching the events in Virginia with heightened interest, as they intend to enact the same kind of gun confiscation laws in their states. The governor of Washington State is already seeking gun confiscation laws in that State predicated on the proposals of the Virginia State government.


And as one can imagine, other draconian gun control measures, such as universal background checks (meaning there would be no such thing as private gun sales), a high-capacity magazine ban (magazines holding more than ten rounds), gun registration—and Donald Trump’s favorite: “red flag” gun confiscation laws—are also being proposed.


Speaking of Donald Trump, has anyone noticed that this president who keeps telling us how much he supports the Second Amendment has thus far said absolutely NOTHING in defense of the brave men and women of Virginia who are RIGHT NOW fighting for the right of every American to keep and bear arms? Not a peep! Not a tweet!


This braggadocious, pompous, loquacious loudmouth, who is quick to condemn almost anyone and everyone to eternal hell if he doesn’t agree with them, is totally mute about the Lexington and Concord redux that is taking place right now in Virginia. He conducts rallies all over America, so why won’t he go to Virginia and help rally the people in support of their God-given right to keep and bear arms?


From a strictly political perspective, Trump should be jumping all over this situation in Virginia. After all, he LOST that State in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And since Trump became president—and for the first time in 26 years—Democrats control the governor’s mansion and both State houses. And what is the first thing they try to do? Propose laws to confiscate the people’s firearms.


Trump has campaigned all over America in support of the Second Amendment. He has repeatedly told us that he is a “true friend and champion” for the Second Amendment (of course, he told us the same thing about the pro-life cause, and he’s done absolutely NOTHING to overturn Roe—and continues to fund Planned Parenthood to the tune of over a half billion dollars annually).


One would think that Donald Trump would be seizing the opportunity that this Democrat gun grab in Virginia affords him to rally the people of that State to his 2020 candidacy by screaming to the heavens about how Democrats are going to take their guns and how he will protect those liberties.
Instead, he’s said NOTHING.


Remember, however, this same Donald Trump is the loudest voice in the country in support of “red flag” gun confiscation laws. In his heart and soul, Trump has always been a New York pro-gun control, pro-abortion liberal. He only became “pro-life” and “pro-gun” when he decided to run for president as a Republican in 2016.


There is absolutely no doubt that the rush to enact gun confiscation laws by states around the country—including Florida and Virginia—is largely due to the encouragement they received from President Trump’s boisterous call for gun confiscation in 2018.



Plus, I hope you realize that Donald Trump is also the loudest voice in America in support of the militarization of our police.


For decades, I have tried to awaken the people of America—especially the Christian people of America—to the existential threat against our right to keep and bear arms. I have urged Christians to vote with their feet and get out of these statist churches who teach that we are Biblically bound to submit to governments that would demand the surrender of our firearms. Any pastor or Bible teacher who takes that position is not only anti-freedom, anti-Constitution, anti-Bill of Rights and anti-Natural Law; he is also anti-Christ and anti-God.


My constitutional attorney son and I co-authored a book entitled To Keep or Not To Keep: Why Christians Should Not Give Up Their Guns. Every Christian in America—especially in Virginia right now—needs to read this book.
I delivered two messages dedicated specifically to the scriptural duty of Christians to never surrender their arms—and I’m talking about our AR-15 rifles. The first message is entitled A Biblical Portrait Of The Righteousness And Requirement Of Bearing Arms. And the second message is entitled The Attack Against Our Guns And The Christian Duty To Repel The Attack.


I’ve said it from the pulpit, and I’ll say it here: The day that my AR-15 rifle is outlawed, I will be an outlaw! And I would make that decision with the perfect confidence that doing so is in total conformity with the scriptural and Natural laws of my Creator and Redeemer—the same confidence as had Jonas Clark and those brave men on Lexington Green.



The truth is, the attempted tyrannical behavior of the State of Virginia—and many other government entities across the country—are exactly why America’s founders put the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights. The right to keep and bear arms has nothing to do with hunting or target shooting and everything to do with protecting oneself and others from common criminals and with protecting freedom from the criminals in government—ANY government.


To the valiant, liberty-loving people of Virginia, I say: HOLD THE LINE! Fate has chosen you to once again be the vanguard of liberty for our nation. Never surrender your arms! Never surrender your semi-automatic rifles or your semi-automatic pistols. Never surrender your high-capacity magazines. And never surrender your right to freely sell, purchase or possess a firearm without government registration.


AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT SURRENDER!


If the tyrannical gun grabbers of this country can succeed in bringing the People of Virginia to their knees, it will start a whirlwind of gun confiscation that will sweep across this entire nation.


I’m here to tell you that the vast majority of the People of Montana are with you. And if and when it comes our turn to stand and fight this tyranny, that is exactly what we will do. And I’m sure I am speaking for the People of Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Alabama, Kentucky, West Virginia and many, many others.
Christian pastors in Virginia: Rally the people to liberty!


Sheriffs, police chiefs, deputy sheriffs, policemen and State patrolmen: Resist this tyranny!


It is no hyperbole to say that the future of America as a free and independent country rests upon the shoulders of the People of Virginia RIGHT NOW, as well as with the liberty-loving people in all of our 50 sovereign states.
Donald Trump or no Donald Trump. Republican Party or no Republican Party. Pastor or no pastor. Governor or no governor. Lawman or no lawman. WE THE PEOPLE fought to make this country free; and WE THE PEOPLE must fight to keep this country free.

What's going to happen on Monday ? Are some gun rights protesters going to bring guns to the rally in Richmond ?


 I found some articles about a supposed new Nazi group related to all this. This first article makes it sound like these guys where planning to attend the rally and commit felonies but other articles mention the usual FBI set ups of that group that are all too common. This is apparently justification for the state of emergency that the VA governor called for.

If this information is basically spot on which often it does seem to be like many other similar scenarios we have seen, it shows that conspiracy theorists have been right all along about the FBI and their political campaign of smoke and mirrors, entrapment and worse things. They are the agency that you should be concerned about rather than thinking that basically not caring or being concerned about any of it is the way to be. In order to fight such effective propaganda that brainwashes the masses, you basically need to actively expose it and call for changes

Tensions are High, Extremists are Expected to Attend. Here's What to Know About the Pro-Gun Rally in Richmond, Virginia

..

A judge’s decision to uphold Northam’s banning of firearms and weapons came Thursday as the FBI arrested three men with ties to a racist violent extremist group known as “The Base,” who allegedly had plans to attend the Monday rally and were carrying a “firearm and ammunition with intent to commit a felony,” according to a statement by the Department of Justice. The three men — Brian Mark Lemley, Jr., 33, William Garfield Bilbrough IV, 19, and Patrik Jordan Mathews, 27 — are facing varying federal charges that include immigration (Mathews is a Canadian national) and firearms violations.


==============


https://www.unz.com/item/the-base-inside-the-fbis-newest-scary-story/

The FBI has since the summer been under immense political pressure to turn up “white supremacist domestic terrorists.” As with leftists and Muslims during previous political crackdowns, the FBI is dusting off the old playbook and manufacturing them.

The latest case is a group called The Base, a small organization that is considered the most extreme of all the right-wing groups. Their members have been raided across the country in the past few days. The latest is a man in Wisconsin who, for all the noise made in the media about terrorism, is only charge is in relation to breaking a Synagogue’s window.

The FBI Gets Tough on Illegal Immigration

The FBI released a press release celebrating its “bust” of three Base members in Maryland. According to the media, these three men, one an undocumented immigrant from Canada, were planning a terrorist attack at the upcoming Virginia gun right’s rally.

Governor Ralph Northam has alluded to this as the excuse for his decision to suspend his state’s open-carry laws at the demonstration, which gun rights groups have appealed on Constitutional grounds to no avail.

The actual criminal complaint, however, does not mention this supposed plot at all. According to the affidavit filed by FBI agent Rachid T. Harrison, the men in question are only being accused of immigration and gun crimes.

According to Harrison, Brian Mark Lemley and William Garfield Bilbrough broke the law when they picked Canadian Patrik Jordan Mathews up in Michigan after he crossed the Canadian border. Then they helped him rent a motel room, and later, Lemley allowed Mathews to stay with him in an apartment in Delaware. Finally, the men allegedly modified a rifle, went to the store to buy ammunition and paper targets, and then took the rifle to a gun range, where the FBI had set up a stationary camera to watch them shoot it.

After a long fishing expedition, the federal government was reduced to charging them with a multitude of immigration related crimes – an ironic political statement by them, to say the least – and a number of gun technicalities, partially relating to the modified firearms upper receiver and allowing “illegal alien” Patrik Mathews to fire it at the range.

There is nothing in the affidavit about any conspiracy to commit violence at the rally in Virginia. That story appears to be concocted to help Governor Northam stave off legal appeals for his unconstitutional “State of Emergency” rules.

FBI-Manufactured Georgia Murder Plot

The only serious charges related to “The Base” (which the media pretends is named after Al Qaeda) is the arrest of another group of three men in Georgia for an alleged plot to murder two anarchists belonging to the left-wing paramilitary group “Atlanta Antifa.”

According to the official criminal complaint, an undercover FBI agent had infiltrated the group, and got close to alleged Luke Austin Lane, Michael John Helterbrand, and Jacob Kaderli, whose ages range from teens to mid 20s. The FBI agent was instrumental in goading the young men, planning the murder, and providing important materials for the conspiracy.

It began in early October 2019, at a meeting of Base members, where a man not being charged or named referred to as “TB [The Base] Member” (in other words, an FBI informant) began talking to Kaderli about his idea to start killing local militants belonging to “antifa.”

Kaderli then tepidly agreed with the idea in theory, but went on to talk about his plan to join the French Foreign Legion. “TB Member” then began mocking him for his “escapism.”

“TB member,” then told him that if he wanted to engage in violence, he had a plan to kill “antifa” that he had been discussing with Lane, and then the undercover FBI agent. Kaderli and Lane did not pursue this idea further.

Weeks later, the undercover agent brought the idea up again to the men. Lane and Kaderli are cited as not wanting anything to do with “TB member’s” plot.

After putting their cellphones away, Lane confided to the undercover agent the details of the informant’s plan, and that he resolutely wanted nothing to do with it.

The federal agent, who presented himself as an experienced killer, continued to persist, until finally persuading Helterbrand, Lane and Kaderli to agree to the “plot” months later in December.

Throughout the entire planning phase, Lane expressed doubts, and kept putting it off, making all kinds of excuses along the way to not appear weak or unwilling.

The three men then joined the FBI agent in plotting the murder, including the house that was being targeted. Interestingly, Lane had expressed to the agent that he wanted to “kill” the other informant, though this is not extrapolated in the document. The agent obtained a car to drive them to the home of the anarchists, and later they were arrested.

Would the murder have ever happened without the FBI entrapping these men? No. If these men go to trial, the hasty, sloppy nature of this phony plot invented by law enforcement will be revealed.

The FBI Is a Political Actor

While the FBI expends massive amounts of resources trying to gin up phony murder plots by 19-year-old “white domestic terrorists,” actual homicides are going unresolved at record high rates. They are not a law enforcement body.

Organizers of the anti-2A counter rally cancelled the event which included high level Democrat speakers.  They only had about 30 people show up and didn't want to be embarrassed.  They had to load up tons of boxes of t-shirts and signs.

Meanwhile thousands of rallyers who refused to go unarmed are forming a ring around the plaza.  Looks like they will outnumber Northam's men by an order of magnitude.  So fears of Northam doing something stupid is greatly diminished.

The homemade signs are amazing.

The left is sending in fake rallyers instigating violence while claiming to be conservatives and libertarians.  But the crowd which includes real ones are having none of it.  They are being rooted out, isolated, and kept from making radical statements unchallenged to media.

https://twitter.com/i/status/1219270732351516673

They are now reporting over ten thousand armed cutizens have completed the circle and thousands of unarmed are already filling the square.  Nirtham's gambit has failed to discourage the event.

And here is MSNBC doing their normally (in)accurate reporting of events on 2A.

https://twitter.com/gabegutierrez/status/1219271317242945540

Lots of hit pieces in media before rally even took place; CNN, PBS, Guardian.  You would think they would actually wait until event had taken place before launching false narratives.  Guess they felt they couldn't wait for this one.

Meanwhile, the rallyers are having a great time mocking them:

https://twitter.com/Julio_Rosas11/status/1219286445942284290?s=09

The speaches are starting early as they can't fit anymore people into the fenced in square.  I hope they all brought their ear protection with them.

Rally is over and people are leaving.  Stephen Gutowski summarized it well: "People are begining to clear out as the rally comes to an end. The attendence was massive. There was no violence, disturbance, or really any consternation from what I witnessed. I did not see any racist displays whatsoever. Everyone in attendance was focused on gun rights."

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?

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. ...

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.

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.

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...

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.
