If the latest revelations by a Virginian legislator are anything to go by, pro-gun groups have a lot to worry about. According to Sen. Amanda Chase of District 11, the stage has been set for the string of events that will take place during the rally.
Governor Ralph Northam has already declared a state of emergency after implementing a firearms’ ban in the Capitol and a total weapons’ bans during the rally. However, this is just the beginning of the things to come.
By declaring a state of emergency, Governor Northam has activated the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act. These laws create the necessary conditions for the declaration of the Second Amendment movement as domestic terrorists. This would give the governor the much-needed justification for a violent crackdown on second amendment groups, militias, and those wearing military camouflage.
“They are kicking things into high gear,” Ms. Chase wrote. “Military veterans are even listed as potential domestic terrorists.”
With the current state of affairs in the state and the governor’s actions, it is difficult to ignore such a dire warning. All it takes to trigger the events is just a single person. The heavy police presence, barricades, and the current state of emergency could also trigger mass hysteria leading to ugly clashes. There is no guarantee that anti-gun groups could trigger such events to make a point about gun rights.
The situation in Virginia is escalating daily and the only hope is that the will of the people will prevail.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
