Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is declaring a state of emergency and is banning firearms and other weapons on the Capitol grounds in Richmond ahead of a gun rights demonstration planned for next week. Gun rights supporters are preparing to converge on Richmond for a lobbying day and a rally Monday morning.
This state of emergency declaration should serve as a wake-up call to those still stuck in the left/right paradigm.
The government of Virginia is sending people a clear message. In case you don’t know, it’s this: “We can take your rights and we will take your rights and we will use violence to do so. If you attempt to take your rights back, we will send men with guns to commit more violence and possibly kill you. We are the masters. You are the slaves. Obey.” In other words, they can do unto you anything they way and you have one choice. To obey. Anyone who thinks this is a “free country” is delusional on an unprecedented level.
But Northam said officials have heard reports of “out-of-state militia groups and hate groups planning to travel from across the country to disrupt our democratic process [of enslavement] with acts of violence.” He said they “are coming to intimidate and to cause harm,” according to a report by NPR. Funny how he can take rights whenever he feels like it, but when people get upset about being further enslaved, they are the bad guys? There is only so far you can push people, and unfortunately, Northam may have crossed that line.
On a Facebook page organizing the gun rights demonstration hosted by the Virginia Citizens Defense League, several commenters expressed frustration at Northam’s move to restrict guns from the Capitol grounds. One wrote, “This is simply a move to infringe on not only our 2nd Amendment rights but our 1st Amendment rights as well.” –NPR
Northam asked organizers of the event to “disavow” any groups who would threaten violence. So let’s get this straight. Comrade Norham will use any level of violence to enforce his new gun laws and hire men with guns to hurt people who disobey him, yet those same people are supposed to not fight back? This is exactly how democide begins…
“Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hardheaded realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners.” ―
