Based on the original 1950 date, I wonder if this was directed at the Klan.
Yes, I know that the laws in GA & AL were in direct response to the KKK. It seems likely that the parallel laws on the books from the same period in other Southern states would have the same impetus.

The Washington Examiner has several articles. They also have a Tweet with Sheriff Vaughan of Grayson County saying that these bills are unconstitutional and will not be enforced.

This sheriff is absolutely right. His first and most important allegiance is the the Constitution of the United States and the Virginia Constitution (personally I believe those allegiances should be switched). Next up comes the People in his jurisdiction. If a law, any law from any political body, countermands either of those constitutions, it is not only his right but his duty to not obey that law. His oath is supreme to any such abeyance to any such law.

Honestly, the lamestream media reports of ~20k is a vast under-estimate given photos like the one above and the knowledge that many refused to enter the barricaded area on principle.
My crowd estimation skills are rusty, but consider this:

1. Let's allow each person 9 sqft each (3 ft x 3 ft) - that may be overly generous looking at the crowd density in the photo

2. If the distance from the camera to the furthest discernible people in that crowd is 1 mile (5,280 ft) and the street is 66 feet wide (4 x 12 ft traffic lanes and 2 x 9 foot parking lanes) and all the people are in the street. That street width looks wider than that.

3. Then the square footage = 5,280 x 66 = 348,480 sqft

4. So allowing the 9 sqft / person we get 38,720 people - not counting the overflow into the side streets

5. A more realistic crowd density of 6 sqft / person we get 58,080 people

6. If we allow 25% (14,000 or 9,000 respectively) more people along the side streets, that puts the crowd size at somewhere between 48,000 and 72,000

If someone can get a decent (accurate) measurement of the length and width dimensions in that photo from the ground, you can come up with a pretty good estimate.

Well, the VA Ralley has hit the campaign.

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden responded to the thousands of diverse Virginia Second Amendment supporters by endorsing the view of 13 activists labeling Virginia attendees “white supremacists.” who claimed to have "travelled [sic] secretly to Richmond & slept overnight in the Capitol in order to avoid the white supremacists who threatened violence."

I have a related question: How do you get to sleep overnight in the Capitol?

Excerpts from a document that many of our politicians apparently have not ever read, but this Sheriff seems to be quite versed in:

...That whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is The Right of The People to alter or abolish it.....

... But when a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government.

How? I’m pretty much a side sleeper so I’d probably just do it that way.

It would not matter if the 2nd Amendment supporting rally folks in Virginia had delivered babies, saved lives, discovered an unlimited source of free energy, cured cancer, handed out free phones (remember that vote buying strategy?), prevented a pandemic, and gave every leftist liberal $1,000,000. The left would still portray gun owners as dangerous armed white supremacist
right wing fanatics liable to go off on murderous rampages at the drop of a hat. And while gun owners are not white supremacists they surely are dangerous to the left's agenda of gaining complete control in order to plunder the country through socialism.

Make no mistake. Because the left understands the reason for the 2nd Amendment only too well leftist elitists consider gun owners the most dangerous enemy to their agenda of making the U.S. into Venezuala.

Called us Nazis... The arrest had nothing to do with the gun rally as it happened almost 2 hours after the rally ended.

Thanks for the find. The rally was basically over before noon; we stopped and had lunch in a nice seafood restaurant, and boarded our bus out of the city around 1 pm. This didn't happen "during" the Lobby Day rally, but after people had dispersed and the event was over.

Wind chill at the start of Lobby Day was 11 degrees; by her arrest time it the wind chill was nearly 27 degrees (real temp 36F, plus wind, about 20 min after arrest). Official weather observations from Richmond International Airport here: https://w1.weather.gov/data/obhistory/KRIC.html

I have another related question. How does anyone who is a complete, utter idiot get to run for President of the United States?

And a truth...Joe Biden has his backside mixed up with his frontside when it comes to his utterances. Most everything that comes forth from either end is smelly.

Try to stay away from Non-2A issues. The mods have been VERY good with this whole issue over the past week but we don't want to get this shut down. Thanks.
