2nd Amendment–supporters are worried about Monday's rally in Virginia

With help from Soros and Bloomberg, last fall, Virginia got a California-style government, meaning it's hard Left from top to bottom.  This new government announced that it wants to do what all Leftist governments do once they attain power: disarm its citizens.

It's a little harder to disarm citizens in America than in other countries because of that pesky Second Amendment, but the Virginia Legislature, with help from Gov. Ralph Northam, is doing its best.  The plan is to ban "assault weapons," with current owners having to register their guns, restricting magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds, raising to 21 the minimum age for firearms purchases, and even banning some firearms training.  The state will also buff up its prison budget for all the people it expects to fight the new laws. 

The augmented prison budget is necessary because triumphant Democrats did not account for waking the sleeping giant.  Those Virginians who had somehow managed to doze through the election realized they were about to lose the one constitutionally identified right that supports all the other rights.  There are now 105 Second Amendment sanctuaries in Virginia.  The state is remembering its role in the American Revolution.

Large numbers of Virginians who support the Second Amendment will attend a pro–Second Amendment rally in Richmond on January 20.  Normally, this would be a good thing, but some are worried that radical Leftist groups are going to appear in MAGA and NRA hats to create trouble:

The Internet is rife with rumors that antifa will march shoulder to shoulder with pro-gun protesters about to descend on Virginia's capital tomorrow — including one claiming that it will be antifa activists wearing red MAGA caps and NRA garb this time.

Tom DeWeese, who works at the American Policy Center, was the first to voice concern:

I'm in Richmond and have just received information from a very reliable source concerning Monday's rally against the legislature's gun grabs. Antifa have rented seven buses to bring in their thugs to cause trouble. The report says they will be wearing MAGA hats and wearing NRA garb. They will pretend to be pro gun people. Meanwhile others posing as democrats holding anti gun signs will stand on the side. The Antifa thugs, pretending to be pro gun , will attack the sign holders. Making it look like the pro gun people have started violence. This is the plan. If you are attending the rally be aware. Be very careful.

The Virginia Legislature's Sen. Amanda Chase echoed DeWeese's concerns that Antifa and other Leftist activists plan a false flag operation to make it appear that Trump- and NRA-supporters are violent people who justify gun control:

Sadly, I am posting this, knowing that the Governor of Virginia has declared a State of Emergency in our state.

I want you to be aware of how we are being set up.

Does the Patriot Act ring a bell?

Does the National Defense Authorization Act ring a bell?

If people show up wearing any kind of uniform, patch or other symbol on their clothing signifying they belong to a militia and something goes wrong, you could/will be held as a domestic terrorist.

If anyone steps out of line, all it takes is one person, it may even be a government plant....if that plant does anything to disrupt the rally, you could/will be arrested as a domestic terrorist.

We were told not once, but several times by the current President, "It's Not Me they are after, It's You, The American People."

Just to add to the concern that the Left is creating a narrative, on Sunday, Ben Collins, an NBC News reporter, announced that he would be covering the "white nationalist rally" in Richmond.  Only later did Collins delete the tweet and explain what he really meant to say:

If you do attend the rally, be of good cheer.  Do not allow yourself to be drawn into fights.  You are there as representatives of all law-abiding American citizens who believe in the Second Amendment.  That places on you an obligation to act with dignity, separating yourself from the violence inherent in Antifa.

At a practical level, carry signs that say "fake conservative" or "false flag" so that, if you see the media converging on someone acting out, you too can converge and label the interlopers for what they are.

By demonstrating good humor and self-restraint, constitutionally minded Americans can expose Leftist overreach to the world — and what a triumph that will be.
