Pro-Gun Virginia Citizens Rise Up Against Democrats, Flood NRA Town Hall
Hundreds of activists defend Second Amendment rights in Roanoke
In an uprising against their Democrat-controlled state government's coming gun control measures, patriotic Virginia citizens flooded an NRA town hall event to defend their Second Amendment rights.
On Friday night, Hundreds of pro-gun political activists showed up to an NRA town hall in Roanoke, Virginia.
The backlash against Virginia Democrats is continuing to grow over their plans to push their far-left agenda aimed at decimating citizens' constitutional rights.
According to local reports, up to 400 people attended the event, many of whom were women and first-time political activists.
The move has been met with severe pushback, with citizens forming Second Amendment sanctuaries across the state to defend their constitutional rights as Americans.
As Neon Nettle reported last week, the total number of “sanctuary counties” in Virginia now stands at 87, representing 91 percent of the counties the state.
The rapidly growing resistance to Democrats’ attempts to confiscate firearms is expected to reach new levels in a little over a week as thousands of pro-gun Virginians are planning to attend the NRA’s legislative action day in Richmond on January 13.
The event is being held on the 13th at the Virginia State Capitol because that is when the first hearings on the issue start in the Virginia State Senate, according to the Daily Wire.

Catherine Mortensen, an NRA spokesperson, told The Daily Wire, “We believe it’s best when lawmakers talk directly to voters.
"We know that NRA members are active and engaged in grassroots activism.
"The more people out there and sharing the message, that’s a win.”
“The 13th is the first meeting of the Senate Courts of Justice committee.
"That’s the first committee of jurisdiction on all the Northam gun control,” Mortensen continued.
“We want to make sure that our members and supporters are in Richmond at that committee hearing on that day so that their voices are heard.
"It’s critical that our members are there early in the session to make the biggest impact in order to stop these gun bills from moving forward.”
“We’re trying to get our members directly to their lawmakers,” Mortensen added.
"We want our members and supporters having those face-to-face meetings with their lawmakers.
“We know that law-abiding gun owners are active and engaged.
"And they may be members of several different groups.
"This gives them additional opportunities to engage in grassroots activism, and that is all positive.
"If numerous groups are out there and sharing the message, that’s a win.”
“The NRA is focused on encouraging our members and supporters to be active and engaged with their legislators from the first day of the session to the last,” Mortensen concluded.
“The NRA will have a strong presence at the Capitol throughout the legislative session, but we know it’s the voice and the presence of our members that carry the most weight with lawmakers.”
