Northam tries to whip up fears ahead of Monday’s gun rally in Richmond…
Guns Banned From Virginia State Capitol
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) declared a temporary emergency Wednesday banning guns from Capitol Square in Richmond ahead of a rally expected to draw thousands in protest of gun control measures.
“We have received credible intelligence from our law enforcement agencies of threats of violence surrounding the demonstration planned for Monday, January 20,” Northam said in a tweet. “This includes extremist rhetoric similar to what has been seen before major incidents, such as Charlottesville in 2017.”
The rally, set to take place Monday, was organized by anti-gun control group Virginia Citizens Defense League in protest of a number of new gun control bills being pushed through by a Democratic-run statehouse, including one that would require universal background checks and another that would limit one handgun purchase per month. The VCDL has also pushed back against a “red flag” bill that would allow authorities to temporarily confiscate guns from someone deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.
VCDL expects upward of 130,000 people to attend the event and is planning to bus people in from across the state.
