January 20

Are you folks keeping up with the happenings in my home state of Virginia? The big rally Monday in Richmond promises to be a monumental event for all Constitutional loving people across our nation. Lots of out of state people plan to be there. Our Commonwealth is said to be a watershed for what could happen in other states. We are thankful, and grateful for those who can attend.

If you will watch Steve Huff's video you'll understand what's at stake in Virginia and across the nation.

Yes Sir, I joined the VCDL and donated an additional $100 onto the cost to join and I live in NJ...This is a Watershed Event for sure. First time the Lefty has been this bold attempting a flash-cut from one of the most 2A friendly states to one of the most anti-2a states. At the same time, the Patriots have formed a coalition to resist which we have never seen before.

Lefty's can't win this one because beyond VA it will set a new low bar in other states to follow. And they will not win. As long as the Patriots stay united they will prevail - Evil Governor is btwn a rock and a hard place. Frankly, he picked the wrong state to attempt this flash-cut into tyranny.

The attendance was impressive. My only gripe was my OCD going nuts after seeing all those people carry rifles with the ejection port doors open.

We won't change the minds of the hard left, but if anything, we have shown the public that we're not the small minority of racist insane chicken tendee eating basement dwellers or trailer park trash the left likes paint us as being (most of us, anyway). This entire movement has been a good eye opener for how large 2A support really is, even in a state that just got a Democratic majority.

Maybe they can stick around into the night and clean up the Richmond inner city violent crime mess.

We had a very good rally at the Federal Building here in Los Angeles. Several different groups were represented, we had two congressional candidates speak to all of us, and we got lots of "honk if you support the 2nd Amendment" honks. Lots of people recording video so I'm sure it will show up various places on the internet. People came from as far as Pomona and Temecula and down in San Diego and the far west valley and up in Santa Clarita. Everyone was very happy and it was a great group of people. America thanks everyone who showed up. The point of the rally was to support our Constitution, to support our fellow patriots in Virginia, and to urge everyone to support their own local groups wherever they are...the NRA, CRPA, the California State Militia, and the various 3% groups that were also there. Our group was very small compared to Virginia but ours was an impromptu event and those that did show up, made up in quality what we lacked in numbers. People had flags and signs and good spirits. All in all, a good day for America.

Congrats to you, John, for showing leadership in organizing and following through with your rally. Also to those who made the trip to be in LA for the event.

Well done.

Pics from VCDL sight

Don't think anyone posted this yet...A GREAT Day for 2A.

https://www.richmond.com/news/local/...50ebbe.html#19

PS, as I was typing this, FOX just reported per the VAST (official #s), there were some 22,000 participants in total yesterday.

Wow, just wow, this is a watershed event for 2A!!!

Good job! Impromptu was the key. If it was organized awhile ago, can you imagine the amount of pink ***** hats and freaks that would have shown up in opposition. Oooooo, I bet they are pissed this wasn’t on their radar...........

. 22000 seems a little low from what I saw. I could be wrong but it looked to be twice that. However I'm not surprised that the media downplayed the event even for fox. Some sources "trying to remember which exactly put the numbers in the 60k range. It was a great turnout either way. This doesn't only effect Virginia, but every state in the union. I'm from Georgia but I stand with Virginia! Lots of people I know personally are with you guys! Sunday at church we had a special prayer for Virginia. You aren't alone.

Lotsa congrats to go around this morning. Just a few below:

***VCDL---two thumbs up for taking the lead on yesterday. You organized it, and set the parameters for what you wanted to achieve. Great job.

***ATTENDEES---two thumbs up for making the effort to show up, many from all over the country. It looked like a great morning to call it in and say...."too damn cold for me. I'll watch it on TV." But you didn't do that.

***THE 2A FAMILY IN VIRGINIA AND THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY---two thumbs up for encouragement during the entire roll out of yesterday by displaying calm support and backing to those trying to make a difference.

***BREITBART NEWS---two thumbs up to the TV crew who spent all day interviewing people on the street and guaranteeing fair opportunity for attendees to speak their minds.

ONWARD.

I want to congratulate those who led & participated in the rally. It was reported on our news as quiet. 22,000 attending one arrest.
One arrest they could have made one arrest any night at 3am at the bars!
Congratulations again, well done!

Regarding the success of the LA event, it really is the result of all the different people and groups who heard about it one way or the other and then picked up the ball and made it happen. They brought flags, signs, a pa system, two congressional candidates...it was inspiring. If it hadn't been for them and all their work, I would have been standing there all by myself. Thanks to them we even had the LA Sherriff's Dept. alerted and watching over us just incase anyone (counter demonstrators?) showed up to make trouble. The big lesson is to become involved with our local groups. Don't allow ourselves to become defeated, make time out of every week to do something to protect our rights and to make America the country we want it to be.

The one arrest in Va was a young lady that refused to uncover her face and masks and objects hiding faces were banned at this event. Probably a good regulation as this disarms Antifa thugs. As much as I hate to credit any decision by the government in this event.

When will the results of these new Va laws be announced? The legislature was supposed to be discussing yesterday 1/21. A second rally might be needed (hopefully not). Presidents Day weekend perhaps...?
