Virginia governor declares state of emergency following militia threats over gun reforms

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam issued a state of emergency on Wednesday that bars any weapons from the Richmond’s Capitol Square from Friday to Tuesday, after he received credible intelligence that hate groups and armed militias are planning violence at next Monday’s Lobby Day against gun control legislation.

Northam, who discussed the threats at a news conference, said the state’s law enforcement analysis found that the chatter on the internet and other venues mirrored similar messages seen around the time of the 2017 Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally, which left three dead and more than 30 injured

The governor declined to give exact details about the threats and the persons making them, but said that these groups, who were coming from outside of the state, talked about storming the Virginia Capitol.

Fake emergency.

There should be a court challenge.

Can he be recalled?

I wonder what the Iranian newscasters who quit on the air would have to say about this character and his claim of a state of emergency?

Some kid in his basement stated “everyone should charge the capital armed and take over”.

Well, at least we know they’re scared.

Start rounding up the usual suspects.

Shoot those who disobey.

"Which side would he have been on in 1776?"

He would have sold out to the Brits, and snitched on his fellow Patriot Virginians.

“They are not coming to peacefully protest, they are coming to intimidate and to cause harm,” he said of the outside groups.

Yet hot a soul points out that the the 2017 Charlottesville, so called “Unite the Right” rally was organized by a leftist Journalism student who wanted to do something really big to become famous.
