    Nationwide 2nd Amendment March- Sat. Jan 19th at the State Capitol 12PM Noon

    Nationwide 2nd Amendment March- Sat. Jan 19th at the State Capitol- 12 Noon

    I know this is short notice for everyone. I have not seen any information on the internet regarding this event within our state. However, given the latest turn of events I thought everyone should know about it.

    I am passing this information along for fellow YouTuber "Patriot Nurse", and a friend. Apparently these events are picking up speed on a national scale.

    My friend says he IS attending and will be at the Richmond Capitol- even if he is the only person there. I really want to go however I am not quite sure I am motivated enough to change my schedule.

    He may well be the only one there - the senators and delegates will not be in session on Saturday.

    We have a much more important event that takes precedence on Monday the 21st and which predates this by many, many years: Lobby Day

    People come from all over the state to interact with their representatives - it is quite an impressive show each year.

    Apparently, this is bigger than it appears. From a FaceBook user, I hear there is a lot of talk about this event, including from the Tea Party- although I am not sure if it relates to VA. I'm going and I will be there.

    Lobby day is the premier event in Va.
    Saturday is for Rabbit hunting.
    Sunday is for getting ready for Lobby Day.

    If folks attended, I appreciate their effort in support of our rights.

    Please give us an after-action report, OP.

    I hope they're also planning to participate in Lobby Day on Monday. Are you?

    Was there.....around 300 people there. For no state organizations and little time that is a pretty good showing. I got interviewed by the RTD, and it made the story. Not too bad, should have told her if the bad guys kept coming I would take care of business, but all in all not bad. I was try hard to not let her have an angel where she could portray me as a crazy person who is just looking to shoot someone. She looked nice enough, but I don't trust reporters.

    Thanks to all that attended. The group was very pleasant and I am glad that I stood with my 2A family. I saw husbands, wives, children, and concerned singles, etc. It was a very nice crowd. I had the pleasure of meeting people from Roanoke, Northern Virginia, Hampton, Harrisburg, and Richmond - all types of people- even Prepper’s were there. I spoke with some young men that will be applying for their permits next month. A VCDL representative was there and notified us that about two pages of proposed anti-freedom bills are dead for this legislative session. I wonder how others would feel if EVERY legislative session, year –after-year there were countless assaults on the Rights others choose to exercise, with bills and proposals to restrict them…. THIS NONSENSE MUST STOP!
