Virginia Senator Warns 2nd Amendment Advocates on Upcoming Rally: It's a 'Set Up'
Amanda Chase warns thousands of gun owners of rally
Republican Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase warned the thousands of Second Amendment advocates planning to attend an upcoming massive pro-gun rally in Richmond, saying they're "being set up.”
The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) event is traditionally known as ‘Lobby Day’ in Virginia’s capital,” according to WTOP.
“Tens of thousands are expected to show up for the event Monday in Richmond. Given the contentious nature of the issue, the prospect of such a large event has raised tensions. Earlier, [Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph] Northam declared a state of emergency. And recent arrests have further raised those tensions.”
Chase wrote in a Facebook post:
“Sadly, I am posting this, knowing that the Governor of Virginia has declared a State of Emergency in our state. I want you to be aware of how we are being set up. Does the Patriot Act ring a bell? Does the National Defense Authorization Act ring a bell?”
“If people show up wearing any kind of uniform, patch or other symbol on their clothing signifying they belong to a militia and something goes wrong, you could/will be held as a domestic terrorist,” Chase continued.
“If anyone steps out of line, all it takes is one person, it may even be a government plant….if that plant does anything to disrupt the rally, you could/will be arrested as a domestic terrorist.”
“The Governor, using the media, has already set the stage for this to happen,” Chase added.
“He has already laid the groundwork to make the entire movement look like insurrection. It will be used to put the rest of the nation on notice of what will happen to you if you resist," she continued.
"They have used the Southern Poverty Law Center over the last 15 years to lay the groundwork. They have labeled us as potential domestic terrorists for a long time now.”
“Anyone who has ever related to the 3%er’s, a militia, or just belonged to any Patriot group…the groundwork has been laid to brand you as a domestic terrorist,” Chase maintained.
“They have gone out of their way since the Obama years to [ensure] they had us labeled, but it didn’t start with Obama. It started with the Patriot Act under the Bush administration. We are being played by a well-oiled machine; these things have been in the works for many years. They are kicking things into high gear. Military veterans were/are even listed as potential domestic terrorist[s].”
“We were told not once, but several times by the current President, ‘It’s Not Me they are after, It’s You, The American People,'” Chase concluded.
Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 17, 2020
“Their actions over the last three years have shown you he was right, they are coming after us full speed ahead, and they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore. Sic semper tyrannis, keep your head on a swivel and know what’s going on around you at all times, at Lobby Day 1/20/20. Everyone be safe out there….Thus always to tyrants.”
The backlash at Northam’s anti-Second Amendment push has been intense, as many states declared themselves to be Second Amendment sanctuaries.
President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday:
“Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia."
"That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you, Dems!”
Neon Nettle reported last year that Democratic lawmakers in Virginia filed proposals to begin the "confiscation" of legally-acquired guns from law-abiding American citizens.
After recently taking complete control of the state, Virginia Democrats are beginning to put their far-left agenda into motion by stripping Americans of their constitutional Second Amendment rights.
The new legislative push follows the announcement at the beginning of last month from leftist Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam regarding his plans to crack down on firearms being owned by civilians.
According to Northam, Democrats “will at least start” their attempts to restrict Virginian’s constitutional rights by “banning the sale of [semi-automatic firearms] and high-capacity magazines, restoring the law that limits purchases to one gun a month."
