US: FBI arrests three white supremacists ahead of Virginia pro-gun rally

United States Department of Justice says the three men are members of a neo-Nazi group, The Base.

"...........The three men were believed to be planning to attend the pro-gun rally planned for Monday in Richmond, according to a law enforcement official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss an active investigation.

In encrypted chat rooms, members of The Base have discussed committing acts of violence against black people and Jews, ways to make improvised explosive devices, their military-style training camps and their desire to create a white "ethno-state", according to an FBI agent's affidavit...........

Men discussed opening fire at pro-gun rally in Richmond, say officials

"Three suspected neo-Nazis who were arrested this week in Maryland and Delaware discussed opening fire at a scheduled pro-gun rally Monday at Virginia's state Capitol, according to local law officials.  

Three other men were also arrested in Georgia this week and have been linked to the same group as the men who allegedly planned the attack at Virginia capitol.

All six of the men are believed to be connected to a violent, white supremacist group called "the Base," The Wall Street Journal reports. The Georgia trio was arrested Wednesday for conspiring to murder a Georgia couple.

The group reportedly engages in activities such as recruiting members online, holding meetings to discuss strategy and participating in paramilitary training camps northwest of Atlanta. The group's mission, according to the Journal is to, “accelerate the downfall of the U.S. government, incite a race war and establish a white ethno-state.”.........

 

on Wednesday, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) declared a state of emergency, temporarily banning firearms near state Capitol grounds in Richmond.

“These threats are real — as evidenced by reports of neo-Nazis arrested this morning after discussing plans to head to Richmond with firearms,” Northam said Thursday.........

Please stop with the nonsense that gun control will stop the violence.      That just supports the bogus POV that Dems are out to take ALL guns away since doing so is the only way to STOP the violence.       Over the top nonsense isn't a good way to convince folks.

Inside America's gun rights resistance-

Democrats swept to victory in Virginia last year after campaigning on stricter gun control laws. Weeks later, the backlash began.

.........

The bills came as no surprise - the Democrats had campaigned heavily on gun control, backed by funding from activist groups which comprehensively outspent the National Rifle Association in its home state. Democratic candidates were responding to a growing clamour for gun control that began with the mass shooting of 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007 and was amplified last year when a municipal worker slaughtered 12 people in Virginia Beach. When they won, the Democrats turned their proposals into bills and promised a wave of progressive legislation. Weeks later, the backlash began.

Nearly 200 Virginia municipalities have now passed second amendment sanctuary resolutions, turning the old Confederate capital - whose motto is "Don't Tread on Me" - into a kind of frontline once again........

.....There is a perception that big-money Democrat donors bought the election and are forcing gun control on a state that doesn't want it - allowing a dense urban population to dictate the law to the state's rural conservative heartlands.

VCDL promotional videos warn that Democrat-driven immigration is changing Virginia's culture...........

.......The first such ordinance passed just last week, in Buffalo Township, Union County. It states that no official of the township shall "participate in any way in the enforcement of any unlawful act, as defined herein, regarding firearms." An unlawful act is defined as "any federal or state law that restricts and individual's constitutional right to keep and bear arms".

In other words, In Buffalo Township, it could soon be against the law to enforce the law....

.....The rally was intended - and successful - as a massive show of force. One large white flag with picture of a rifle said, "COME AND TAKE IT". All through the large crowd people carried the VCDL second amendment sanctuary placard,

and some said that if defending their guns from new laws meant firing them at someone, they would........

On Monday it put out a slick video with footage of the rally and a voiceover warning

that mass immigration was threatening Virginia's gun culture. .....

Most people I spoke to seemed to recognise that the resolutions were essentially symbolic. Few said they would abide by new gun control laws if they passed. Some said straightforwardly that if they lost the legal argument, the final arbiter would be their firearms.

"I think what you're going to see next is a massive level of non-compliance," said Yingling, the Pennsylvania militia leader. "And if they want to take that one step further to actual confiscation, there's a very good possibility you will see armed rebellion in this country."........

People who didn't pay any attention?????

I don't think that responsibility is on the public.

They would be lucky if the police didn't just take care of them. The police have been known to shoot children who have toy guns that look very realistic.

People like this are dangerous and not just for their behavior but for what they stand for.

They remove the orange safety tip or paint over it which distinguishes toy from real guns.  BB guns / air rifles don't have them.  People have been killed by the police for NOT dropping whatever they have in their hand.  I don't care how much it cost, a smartphone is not worth one's life.

The number of times I seen on "Live PD" police officers complains to people with fake guns - what are they thinking?

Virginia Governor's Bill To Ban Assault Weapons Fails, With Help From His Own Party

Virginia's Democratic governor seemed poised to make broad changes to his state's gun control laws, but was dealt a stinging blow by his own party Monday when a state Senate committee blocked a bill that would have, among other things, banned sales of assault weapons.

Four Democrats on Virginia's Senate Judiciary Committee broke ranks with their party handing the Republican minority a victory in tabling the bill for the remainder of the year. It also sent the measure to the state's Crime Commission for further review.

The bill would have banned the sale or transfer of certain assault-style weapons in Virginia. It also would have made it illegal to possess silencers and magazines holding more than 12 rounds.

Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, had championed the legislation, which was part of a series of eight gun-control measures the Virginia House passed earlier this year. The seven remaining bills are still being considered in the state Senate.

Still, after Democrats' big gains last fall in the Virginia General Assembly — controlling the governor's mansion and both chambers of Virginia's General Assembly for the first time in a generation — changes in gun laws appeared on track to move forward unimpeded.

Yes, the reality of staying in office past the next election probably many Dems to take the course they did.  The Dems did make some serious changes to guns in VA, but maybe this one is A Gun Too Far, at least right now.  If the Dems screw up and lost both houses and the governorship, the GOPers will reverse all the good things they did.

I'm not as cynical as you are about this:    It could be that many of the Dems in the State Senate voted against this because that is their overall view  on gun control:

Yes for laws related to background checks,  waiting periods,  and other measures that ensure guns don't get into the hands of the "wrong people",   but NOT laws that denied the right to own a gun for everyone. 

Note that it appears the red-flag law, which does remove guns from citizens,   will pass but this is only a temporary removal.   

I'm also not so cynical about if GOPers retake both houses and the governorship in future elections,  depending on their margin of victory;  I.e.  if that margin is "small",  I can see the Gopers sticking with gun control laws that only delay the purchase of a gun or deny it to those that any reasonable person would say should NOT own a gun (at least on a temporary basis).

Of course maybe I'm just full of BS wishful thinking!

NRA sues California officials for closing gun stores amid coronavirus outbreak

.........the state forced gun stores to close under Gov. Gavin Newsom's (D) shelter-in-place order amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Under Newsom's order, these stores are considered nonessential. The complaint demands that gun shops in California be deemed essential and reopened.

The suit was filed with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

“Municipalities who target lawful gun stores for closure aren’t promoting safety—by weaponizing their politics to disarm you and your loved ones, these shameless partisans are recklessly promoting a gun-control agenda that suffocates your self-defense rights when you need them most,".......

 

Brady, one of the leading gun violence prevention groups in the country, told CNN that the lawsuit was off-base.

"In this time when we all need to sacrifice to flatten the curve and stop this pandemic, it is disturbing that the NRA won't budge from its overriding purpose -- to increase gun industry profits at any cost," Kris Brown, Brady's president, told the network.
 
"There is no constitutional right to spread coronavirus while shopping, for guns or anything else," she said.

Trudeau announces ban on assault-style weapons in Canada

...........Beginning on Friday, around 1,500 makes and models of military-grade firearm weapons would be banned from licensed gun owners to sell, transport, import or use in the country, according to CBC News.

Public Safety Minister Bill Blair affirmed the order, saying, "As of today, the market for assault weapons in Canada is closed."

"Enough is enough — banning these firearms will save Canadian lives," he added.

A two-year amnesty period will be available for people who already own the listed firearms to comply with the ban, Trudeau said, adding that new legislation would be passed to provide "fair compensation" for owners of the now-illegal firearms.........

These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only — only to kill the largest amount of people in the shortest amount of time," Trudeau said, adding that he acknowledges most gun owners are law-abiding citizens.

"You don't need an AR-15 to bring down a deer," he said.

Gun models like the M16, M4, AR-10, and AR-15 rifles are on the list of banned assault weapons, and there are an estimated 83,572 in Canada currently, ................
