Yep. Not trying to sound tin foil hat on here but I sincerely hope there isn't a setup of some kind to further the left's agenda over there. Some of the governor's moves ahead of this gathering are questionable to say the least.

Thatís not tin foil hat. There will be violence intended to provoke a lawfully carrying citizen.

I hope it is not a incident started by a nutcase who is pro 2nd amendment. Very volatile situation in Virginia.

Everyone should be closely watching and keeping fingers crossed.

Cannot believe what has happened in VA and that all who believe in the 2nd Amendment are not outraged.

I guess I am a little naive at my age because I never thought something like that would happen in my life -what little I have left.

I saw online where a group from Antifa is going to dress like 2A supporters and will instigate violence against the 2A counter protesters to make it appear the 2A people started the violence.

Things are coming to a head. I worry for my kids’ generation.

I hope the governor has followed his own rules and that his security detail is unarmed since all weapons are banned on Capitol grounds.

Problem is that the innocent owners are paying the actions of criminals. Criminals don’t care about the law and never will. Chicago has the strictest gun laws and the highest murder rate. The CJ system is broken and needs to go back to the days when criminals were held accountable, do a crime with a gun life sentence no exceptions.

No, that puts us paying for them indefinitely. When the threat of capital punishment went away, so did the baseline structure of our society. No other point in human history let you do heinous acts and know you wouldnít pay the price.

True that....capital would be the way to go but Democrats have messed that up in most other states. Cruel punishment... I’d bet that if one of their family members was murdered by one of the animals they’d be all for it. Politicians have no sense of reality.

II hope cooler heads prevail as well. With that said, what happens if they chose law like you state but the law directly violates the constitution which they have taken an oath to uphold? Everything they are enforcing as law today is unconstitutional from the horse**** state of emergency gun ban to the overall anti-2nd laws that are being protested. LEO are going to have to chose between the constitution and law cause they aren't the same in VA. I'm proud of the sheriff officers that have come out on the side of the 2nd despite racist ralph's efforts.

You're a little presumptuous. I've asked some and have been mortified by some of the answers I've gotten. I'm sure there will be some who hold their oath close to their heart but never assume they are all that way.

Many LE have said they will not enforce the laws that violate the constitution...tons of chatter about sanctuary cities / counties. Crazy.

Not fair for them to be in such a bogus position.

The Constitution is Law

It's going to be a slippery slope. That's why I pray for cooler heads to prevail.


I'm not a foil hat wearer. Here's a thought I have often had.

If this could be the start of Civil War II could the USMC really kick Army, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard by themselves?
0:-) I think so.
