The rally to be led by Second Amendment advocates today, Jan. 20, at the behest of the state Capitol in Richmond, Virginia, could be infiltrated by the terrorist action of the radical leftist antifa group, which would be organizing a plan to disrupt the event known as Lobby Day.
An anonymous informant, who contacted National File, alleges today’s demonstration in Richmond against gun control could possibly lead to a staged conflict in which members of antifa would pose as Second Amendment supporters and attack Democrats that would be recorded by national news cameras.
“I’m in Richmond and have just received information from a very reliable source concerning Monday’s rally against the Legislature’s gun grabs. Antifa have rented seven buses to bring in their thugs to cause trouble,” the source claimed.
“The report says they will be wearing MAGA hats and wearing NRA garb. They will pretend to be pro gun people. Meanwhile others posing as democrats holding anti gun signs will stand on the side. The Antifa thugs, pretending to be pro gun, will attack the sign holders. Making it look like the pro gun people have started violence. This is the plan. If you are attending the rally be aware. Be very careful,” added the anonymous source.
According to CBS News, Virginia police agencies have been reporting “threats of armed confrontation and assault on our Capitol” from violent groups in recent days.
On Jan. 19, CNN correspondent Josh Campbell tweeted, “All eyes on Virginia as the FBI investigates threats from violent groups and white nationalists ahead of a pro-gun rally.”
Amid the mobilizations against legislation to end the Second Amendment, Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, alleged protesters would not demonstrate peacefully, so he declared a state of emergency Jan. 17-21.
Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney said, “City law enforcement officials have coordinated for weeks to ensure a peaceful gathering.”
“Our approach Monday will be the same—we will ensure the right to free speech. Exercising your rights is fundamentally American,” Stoney said.
With Democrats pushing for the state of Virginia, which has declared itself a sanctuary for Second Amendment constitutional rights, former U.S. Senate candidate and County Commissioner Corey Stewart said, “The word ‘tyrant’ comes to mind when thinking of Governor Northam’s declaring a state of emergency, banning law-abiding Virginians from possessing firearms, and trying to intimidate them from standing up for their rights in Richmond.”
“Unfortunately, this echoes the actions of Governor McAuliffe and the city of Charlottesville in 2017, which the Heaphy Report determined were partly to blame for the violence there,” Stewart added, according to the National File.
Stewart referred to the incident in Charlottesville in 2017, when a woman died and a dozen other people were injured.
Northam also hopes to restrict and concentrate Second Amendment citizens to an area where only one way in and out has been made available, which could lead to peaceful protesters becoming easier victims of violent action by radical groups.

Meanwhile, through Twitter, President Donald Trump expressed himself about the tense situation that the demonstrators could face during today’s rally and the legislation that Democrats are advancing against the carrying of weapons.
“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!”
