After the outstanding show of Second Amendment support by over 22,000 citizens in Richmond, Virginia, what exactly has this show of force accomplished?
First, it showed that a huge number of people disagree with the agenda of the Democrat liberal leftists now running Virginia’s government and the Bloomberg funded political machine that got them elected.
But… the fix was in before a single protester showed up in Richmond. Bloomberg money bought that prior to the election. The voters drank the poison kool-aid and voted leftist secular socialists into office along with a very ill conceived dangerous anti-gun owner agenda.
Sure, we drove their cynical governor to show his true colors and as a prophylactic ban guns on the Capitol grounds, allowing them to create an choke point that slowed down the crowd attempting to enter what became a fenced mini-gulag.
Sure, more and more Virginia and adjacent state counties are passing impotent “Second Amendment Sanctuary” recommendations (without force of law).
Thousands of peaceful gun owners created the street theater that the agenda fueled legacy media loves. Lots of scary black rifles. Lots of predictions of irrational violence. Lots of anxious “breaking news” brainless talking heads on camera. And then, a violence nothing burger. It would seem that thousands of guns in the right hands don’t hurt anyone.
Both houses of the leftist dominated Virginia legislature took stock of 22,000 protesting citizens that told them, “don’t do this gun control crap” and collectively gave us the finger. Loud. Proud. Fast and Sure.
They have passed all the gun confiscation laws, gun owner suppression laws, complex bureaucracy laws, due process violating laws and prohibition laws that they could think of, all paid for by Bloomberg, his screaming mommies (who also get good camera) and ignorant scared high school students (who the supposed “Gun Free” massacre zone laws make vulnerable sitting ducks for the next terrorist, or bullied peer that decides to end it all).
The Virginia legislature and governor saw us protest, and then immediately passed the entire package of laws that demonize guns and gun owners while having absolutely NO impact on actual crime or violent criminals None. Nada. Zip. Zilch
This may make Virginia gun grabbers feel warm and fuzzy as they huddle in their lairs, a little closer to disarmed serf status than they appreciate, but it has made Virginia more dangerous, lawless and cynical.
When you let ignorant voters be motivated to vote by an agenda fueled legacy media and their vote bought by the liars paid for by Bloomberg and company, you get Virginia 2020.
Virginia 2020 is the prime ground zero example of how to make America weak. How to make Americans into “subjects” of politicians with too much power for their own understanding or our collective good.
Thank you to everyone that traveled to Richmond, rallied for gun rights, gave the media a great week long ride (including an anxious build up and a satisfying nothing burger finish), exposed a cynical government of leftist gun grabbing zealots, and still got a bag of manure as the politicians held up their middle finger and voted.
Virginia 2020 – Make America Kneel Again!
Bloomberg claims to have bought over 21 state elections in his current advertising, as he is working to try and buy the presidential election.
When you buy elections, you get what the buyers want. In this case you got immediate, sure implementation of all the current gun grabber legal strategies in one short 3 week period punctuated by an ultimately impotent protest by the people – who turn out not to matter as much as Bloomberg money. Yes, Virginia… Government is corrupted by the influence of money.
Your own state gun rights organization is in the trenches full time, working to directly influence legislators and warn them they will lose their power if they play this game. If you don’t support these organizations, and if you don’t vote to protect the Second Amendment, you’ll get Virginia in your own state.
The politicians looked at the assembled people, smiled, checked their bank accounts and influence buyers and voted against freedom and for making violent crime easier in their commonwealth.
This is as sure as the trampled rights of the subjects of the State of Virginia.
These Virginia politicians know they are making laws that don’t address crime. They have always known that gun control has nothing to do with suppressing crime. It’s just a cynical excuse for disarming America.
Now they know that if leftists put enough money into target states, they can convince ignorant voters (who have been influenced by the propaganda constantly bombarding them from legacy media outlets) to put them in office, allowing them to dominate state government.
When they have absolute control, the leftist secular socialist Democrat political machine can act on their agenda to suppress American liberty, and pass laws to disarm Americans. There is no rational justification, just a political will to dominate people turning them into subjects… serfs.
When people finally wake up to their subjugation, it will be too late, and the politicians will say, “Well – we did what you wanted us to do, to make you feel safe…”.
The fact that they’ve also made it much easier for criminals, terrorists and psychopaths will be our problem, not theirs. They all have armed security.
In the meantime, the leftist politicians stand together and defy American citizens. How’s it feel to give up your liberty because your fellow citizens are too ignorant to care?
Yes… And apart from potentially losing their headquarters indoor range, where exactly has the NRA been when we need them the most?
I’m a benefactor life member of the NRA, but I keep seeing them supporting half baked gun grabber measures like Red Flag laws, and compromising with gun grabber politicians, all while constantly sending me missives to join LaPierre’s wife’s wine club…
Where is the NRA when they replace the full time lobbyist ILA had dedicated to North Carolina with a new and inexperienced one that splits time between North Carolina and Nebraska?
I’m not even going to get started on how they’ve been using our donations and membership money.
Traveling to Richmond and demonstrating for our rights is important because it can remind politicians of how dangerous it is to tread on peaceful American citizen’s rights.
But those politicians are now empowered to defy liberty. They have clearly ignored 22,000 citizens that showed up on their door and in their front yard and peacefully told them to stop acting on their agenda.
Gun Grabber Money has bought influence with the objective of destroying American liberty in direct defiance to this rally and peaceful demonstration.
The politicians have acted, and acted quickly. They have told us that gun owners are too weak to influence their elections. That gun owners need impotent “sanctuary” in their weakness, something that the politicians could readily ignore if they chose to engage in a fight. Here is how they see us, and all 22,000 that showed up in Richmond:

You’ll notice that is an eagle swooping in, not a Donkey…
I support the Richmond protest, but it must only be the beginning of our defiance. We must fix this, and do it in the primaries at the ballot box.
Gun owners are a political target, and we’re not doing well in the face of legacy media propaganda that keeps demonizing us. This is influencing average Americans that are not engaged, ignorant of the importance of their freedom and liberty, and willing to vote to ensure that the government keeps supporting them with transfer payments.
We must fix this. We’re losing America. President Trump can’t fix this for us.
