This is approaching “worrisome” level now.
When is Lobby Day?
National defense airspace? Who is attacking? Russian fighters? Chinese? And if this is national level, its no longer a state dispute.
Is that stupid governor going to bomb USA citizens, or what?
I wish that if antifa surrounded the gun rights people that the Guard would surround them.
Strange actions for the U.S.
These idiots are provoking a showdown
Why is the Trump administration cooperating with Northam?
If CoonMan wants to shut down opposition, where does he get off using federal assets?
Hope this means there will be federal drone surveillance of the rally.
Lord knows Atty Gen Herring will ‘disappear’ any state-gathered evidence of attacks on the protestors.
No sir, Monday is MLK day.
We think alike. That was my first thought as well.
I expect something big was planned against second Amendment.
Next will be: No cell phones or electronic recording devices inside secure venue.
Will the ER at the hospital be geared up for mass casualties?
I'm a ma'am. :-)
OK. I suspect this will be a Historical event. I expect Marines and Airborne.
As some one who was deeply involved with Emergency Services in multiple hospitals...we ALWAYS did a review before large events in town. (There are a couple a year bring in tens of thousands.)
We would have had a drill in the previous week. Most of it was tabletop, but we would test the alarm systems.
I have a feeling you’re right on it being historical. I pray it isn’t for the wrong reasons.
Lobby Day was 1st observed in 2008 on MLKJr. Day and has been an annual event ever since to directly petition the legislators in the VA Commonwealth statehouse.
