I’ve been a Virginia Citizen’s Defense League member for a LONG time (15 years? 20? I don’t remember) I was an Executive Member for a couple of years before my job requirements made it too difficult. As a VCDL member I’ve attended lobby day on MLK day many times over those years.
This year I decided not to go. I’m ashamed to admit that I bought into the fake media’s hype and was afraid that leftist provocateurs were going to show up and try to make the whole thing something it was never intended to be: a riot.
After it’s all over, I wish I’d gone. I am EXTREMELY proud of my fellow gun owners, how they comported themselves and how the rally went. I’m embarrassed that I ever considered it could be otherwise.
The rally went off without a hitch, tens of thousands of gun rights supporters peaceably assembled and made their voices heard without a single incident. The only arrest was after the rally was over and was for a non-violent offense (wearing a mask in public after several warnings).
And, as has been my unfailing experience with right-wing “protests”…they cleaned up after themselves instead of leaving the place trashed like leftists invariably do.
At any rate, since I don’t have any pictures, I’ll link to a couple of twitter feeds with pictures and videos of the rally. It’s quite inspiring:
