“RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT/AP) – Fearing a repeat of the deadly violence that engulfed Charlottesville more than two years ago, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam declared a temporary emergency Wednesday banning all weapons, including guns, from Capitol Square ahead of a massive rally planned next week over gun rights.

The governor, a Democrat, announced the plans at a news conference Wednesday afternoon because of credible threats of potential violence and extremism, one official said.

“Let me be clear. These are considered credible threats by law enforcement agencies,” Gov. Ralph Northam said.

Northam’s announcement comes days after Democratic leaders used a special rules committee to ban guns inside the Capitol and a legislative office building. That ban did not include Capitol grounds, which are under the governor’s control and are where thousands of gun-rights advocates are expected to rally Monday.

Northam decided to ban all guns from the grounds of Capitol Square after receiving reports for weeks about inflammatory online postings by out-of-state pro-gun and militia groups who are promising to attend Monday’s rally.

“No weapons will be allowed on capitol grounds. This includes everything from sticks and bats to chains and projectiles,” Northam said.”

  1. From over at PJ Media: (https://pjmedia.com/vodkapundit/virginia-governor-to-declare-state-emergency-to-prevent-lawful-carry-at-2a-rally/)

    “Just days before a planned gun-rights protest in the state capitol, Democratic Governor Ralph Northam plans to declare an emergency later today banning all weapons, including firearms, from the Capitol Square. According to NBC4 in Washington, officials speaking on condition of anonymity said the governor is concerned about “credible threats of potential violence and extremism.”
    However, the ominous-sounding report has the unnamed official admitting that “the state does not have intelligence that the groups are planning a specific act of violence.”
    (Emphasis mine)
    Still, “Northam has grown increasingly concerned about numerous ominous-sounding postings on social media from forces outside Virginia.”

  2. From your article:

    “Officials say there will be one way onto Capitol Square Monday morning.”

    Sound familiar? Charlottesville anybody? I smell “setup”; do you smell “setup”? (Although it also sounds like pant-shitting Ralphie just realized he doesn’t have (or can’t get) enough JBT’s to make his decree at Capitol Square stick.)

    Nothing about the increasing fascistic whispers coming from the state house.

    In 2009 a reporter from MSNBC asked the Iranian protesters why they don’t overthrow their corrupt government.
    The Protesters said that the government are the only ones with guns.

    Another reporter from MSNBC asked other Iranian protesters in a different Iranian city why they don’t overthrow their corrupt government.
    The Protesters again said that the government are the only ones with guns.

    MSNBC reporters stopped asking that question after that….
    Moral of the story for Americans: Never, never, never give up our guns.
