Quote of the day—Philip Van Cleave

To our knowledge, there are no credible threats of violence. That being said, please practice appropriate situational awareness. IF YOU SEE A BAD ACTOR flag down a police officer and point it out. If someone tries to provoke you, smile and walk away. There is probably someone secretly recording the interaction, with the intent of capturing some kind of inappropriate reaction on your part. Don’t take the bait. It’s not worth the bad press. Again, you might want to notify law enforcement of such bad actors.

  1. Didn’t Sun Tzu say attacking cities was the LAST thing you should do? We’ll see. What’s the odds that governor Blackface and company will change their minds? No matter what happens.

    • Yep, If nothing happens, “Well, they were too chicken to confront us.” If anything happens, “Well, you see how violent they are?”
      The Media can make anything out of nothing, and this event is designed to catch the pro-liberty people on one tine or the other. We can call it “Northham’s Fork” (after Morton’s Fork, Morton’s shabby strategy for squeezing English taxpayers to replenish Henry VII’s empty treasury).

      • I agree. It’s a setup. Dammed if we do, dammed if we don’t. And gun-grabbers in other states are watching and learning.

        Let’s hope that numbers will temper the reaction.

  2. I am very happy this event was peaceful. It had MUCH potential to go sideways and get ugly if the left had decided to release their agents provocateur into the crowd to foment violence.

    Unfortunately, while a successful rally NOTHING has changed. Coonman Northam and his commie accomplices in the statehouse were NEVER in danger thus they were NEVER afraid and therefore they have ZERO incentive to cease and desist in their efforts to destroy Virginia, America and freedom and in all probability this event only enraged them and motivated them to double down and try even harder to ram through their evil and abusive legislation.

    The commie left is like the Terminator from Hollywood….
    “It (they)can’t be bargained with. It (they) can’t be reasoned with. It (they) doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear! And it (they) absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!”

    The commie left will NEVER EVER cease their quest to disarm, enslave and destroy us as long as they are capable of turning oxygen into carbon dioxide.

    • Yes they will. But their tyrants for the world to see now. They can never argue again that gun control is for public safety.
      Virginians just put a sword through the heart of the commie left’s gun control narrative. They can never say again that guns in the hand of private citizens are a problem. One would have certainly happened yesterday wouldn’t it? A problem that is?
      Virginians took the high ground from the left yesterday! Is the fight over, not in our life time. But that’s one of the reasons we own guns!
