Northam: State Of Emergency in Richmond, Guns Banned For Lobby Day

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam officially announced his intent to ban guns on the grounds of the state capitol during next Monday’s Lobby Day, when tens of thousands of gun owners and Second Amendment supporters are expected to be on hand lobbying against his gun control agenda.

Speaking at a Wednesday afternoon press conference, Northam cited concerns over violence taking place during the gathering, and compared the upcoming Lobby Day to the riots in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2018 that left one dead while declaring a temporary state of emergency in Richmond from Friday evening through next Tuesday night.

I hope and believe that Monday’s event will be a peaceful and positive one, but I also think the governor is making a big mistake, and not only in banning firearms from the Capitol Square. I think it’s also a very bad idea to restrict entry to the capitol grounds to a single entrance, as Northam’s plan calls for. Instead of funneling the tens of thousands of people onto the capitol grounds, there are going to be tens of thousands bottlenecked outside. That creates an even more chaotic situation.

  1. “No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves…” — Alexander Hamilton, Federalist #78

    Starting to look like this is an attempted overreach on the part of gov blackface as his limitation is to prohibiting guns in emergency shelters only, per the statute even he voted for as a senator.

    • Charles in VA says:

      What hasn’t he done that wasn’t an over reach? And by declaring a “State of Emergency”, he now has the National Guard at his disposal should things turn “spicy”.

      That’s the plan.

  3. Charles in VA says:

    Four more days until “I told you so”!

    This move by Coon Face guarantees that the anti-gun media will be out in force. The narrative has already been written, and “WHITE NATIONALISTS” will be the villains. Antifa will get a pass.

    And when the dust finally settles and the blood is hosed off the streets, this will STILL end up in the Courts. So be sure to tune in on the 20th to watch 10,000 monkeys try to F#@! a giant football. After all…we all needed a break from the Impeachment farce show, didn’t we?

    I’d also like to note for the record that the NRA “visit” to Richmond went off without a hitch, but when this $hit show goes down, the VCDL crowd will be labeled as “NRA members” and blamed for the violence. As if our job wasn’t hard enough already.

    Way to go, Cleaves.

    Everyone should pray this snowy weather we’re expecting closes all the roads in Richmond. I know I am.

    Hope is not an action plan,

    And chaos is exactly Northam’s plan. That bottleneck will be the contact point. The gauntlet. The feed throat of the wood chipper. No guns inside. Guns and antifa outside. Everyone in the kill box is trapped with no means of defense. Everyone outside will be too busy defending themselves and trying to escape the mayhem to render aid to those in the kill box. None of this is incidental or accidental. THIS IS THE PLAN.

    This is a better set up than Little Big Horn.

    Did I mention the FBI has a field office facing the kill box? Yeah.

    Hey, Charles -- have you (and the rest of the ‘I told you so’ crowd) ever Considered that it is the .gov (and their communist Owners) who seem to be Determined to start the Boogaloo? that (un)Civil War is going to Happen no matter how many ‘patriots’ keep giving Reasons to Back Away? That None of Us on the side of Liberty are going to have a Say in How/When it starts?
    Our ‘votes’ haven’t mattered for a long Time, and the communists effectively control the Courts, ‘law enforcement’ and the Military.

    I look at it from the standpoint that the communists and their puppet ‘Coonman’ are doing Everything they Can to create Violence, signalling that Rule 308 is soon to apply. Yes, I’d rather Not see it go “Hot” but expect it to, Sooner now than Later.

    So, what are YOU going to be doing on Tuesday as the “Troubles” begin? Ranting on the ‘net about how you were ‘right’ won’t matter a rat’s ass at that point, will it?
