Ralph Northam Declares State of Emergency, Bans All Guns From Capitol Grounds


1 views

Virginia Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam has declared a state of emergency just ahead of a huge gun rights rally planned for next Wednesday.

Northam, who is on a crusade to take away all guns from folks in his state (and strip away Americans’ First Amendment liberties in the process), is set to temporarily ban all weapons including guns from Capitol grounds.

Fox News has more to say:

Fearing a repeat of the deadly violence that engulfed Charlottesville more than two years ago, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam plans to declare a temporary emergency Wednesday banning all weapons, including guns, from Capitol Square ahead of a massive rally planned next week over gun rights.

That’s according to two state officials who were briefed on the plans but not authorized to speak publicly about them. The governor, a Democrat, plans to announce the plans at a news conference Wednesday afternoon because of credible threats of potential violence and extremism, one official said.

Northam’s planned 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 a huge number of gun-rights advocates are expected to rally Monday.

One official said 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.
