I try my best to stay away from political topics here on this forum. I’m extremely political, and have my fair share of opinions, but that’s not what I want to associate with Ben’s site.
That being said, over 22,000 people showed up today at the Virginia state capitol to protest the anti-2nd amendment rhetoric of Governor Ralph Northam and other left leaning elected officials. An estimated 16,000 of them were armed, many with “assault rifles” with “high capacity” magazines.
Not one shot was fired. Not one brawl erupted. In fact, when the whole thing was over, the crowd cleaned up after themselves and dispersed peacefully.
I’ve already seen news stories claiming that it was a white supremacists meeting. Total hogwash. There were people of all walks of life there, getting along, making new friends, and coming together to keep our great constitution alive.
Way to go VA!
