Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring filed a brief to oppose the appeal to the State Supreme Court of Governor Coonman’s emergency gun ban, citing...

“...not peaceful assembly but violence, rioting, and insurrection.”

If there was ever any doubt as to their motives for depriving citizens of their rights, this clears it.

    Unbelievably Sad State of Affairs going on in Virginia. I almost find it hard to believe the State changed so rapidly.

    Shows you what can happen if/when the Wrong People get Voted in to Office.

    It's The demographics of the majority changing the laws in their favor.Hillary would have been elected already if the simple majority had been counted as a winner of The national elections. All this is just going to do is make a white/conservative minority turn to despair and become either a disarmed people or be labeled a terrorist and be interned under a secret court order.

    In fact this what The deep state hopes to happen very soon. Yeah FEMA camps was just a distant kook's conspiracy theory before 9/11 and The national patriots acts! If you think natural citizens can not be held under these acts your deluded.


    Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52) expanded the definition of terrorism to cover ""domestic,"" as opposed to international, terrorism.   A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act "dangerous to human life" that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to:  (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping.  Additionally, the acts have to occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States and if they do not, may be regarded as international terrorism.

    A number of measures were introduced in an attempt to prevent and penalize activities that are deemed to support terrorism. It was made a crime to harbor or conceal terrorists, and those who do are subject to a fine or imprisonment of up to 10 years, or both.[127] U.S. forfeiture law was also amended to allow authorities to seize all foreign and domestic assets from any group or individual that is caught planning to commit acts of terrorism against the U.S. or U.S. citizens. Assets may also be seized if they have been acquired or maintained by an individual or organization for the purposes of further terrorist activities.[128] One section of the Act (section 805) prohibited "material support" for terrorists, and in particular included "expert advice or assistance."[129] In 2004, after the Humanitarian Law Project filed a civil action against the U.S. government, a Federal District Court struck this down as unconstitutionally vague;[130] but in 2010 the Supreme Court upheld it.[131] Congress later improved the law by defining the definitions of the "material support or resources," "training," and "expert advise or resources."[132]
