USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Virginia gun owners made history on January 20th, 2020. In response to Governor Northam‘s unconstitutional and tyrannical gun laws, tens of thousands of gun owners from across the country descended on Virginia to remind governor Northam who he works for. Although the media desperately hyped the rally as a collection of dangerous terrorists and white supremacists, the truth is, the reporters, news outlets and some politicians showed their own racial bias, ignorance and their desperate attempt at creating a fake narrative.
A particularly shortsighted and ignorant comment came from Nupol Kiazolu – President, Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, when she said: “With the threat of gun-violence today from the armed militias out there. Um, I’d rather call them terrorists because that’s what they are to me.”
The truth is, the entire event consisting of approximately 25,000 to 50,000 armed Americans had no negative occurrences. There were no arrests or acts of violence, regardless of how hard the anti-gun crowd and left-wing ideologues wished for it to be so. As a matter of fact, as the event was winding down, gun-owners were caught on tape picking up trash in the streets. When was the last time you saw “terrorists” clean up after themselves?
The Anti-2nd Amendment radicals try to push society into disarmament by constantly perpetuating a negative narrative around guns. They do this by creating irrational gun fear in the minds of people who don’t know any better. People are taught through the media to fear guns and believe that guns actually cause human violence. They take the idea of free will out of the equation and spread ignorance by making people believe that if killers didn’t have guns, they wouldn’t kill. Or, if you have a gun you may be influenced by that gun to hurt people. These delusional thoughts couldn’t be further from the truth. Gun owners have proven yet again to be some of the most responsible people despite the delusional dreams of the anti-gun crowd. The truth is, guns are used 2 1/2 million times per year in America to protect families and save lives.

Guns have no influence over the actions of people and there’s no such thing as “gun violence.” There’s only “human violence.” If someone believes in their mind that a gun could cause people to act violently, aren’t they the ones we should be concerned with? They are the ones who imagine reactive behavior with no self-control because of an inanimate object. This alone should alert everyone that those thinking such thoughts may be unable to function safely in society. Reactive and impulsive behavior should make everyone concerned and the anti-gun crowd reveals themselves when they use this type of language.
The desperate and pathetic anti-gun crowd also work very hard at convincing society to hate gun owners. This is why the narrative leading up to Virginia was so negative. The idea is for the average person to develop a disdain toward gun owners. The hope of the anti-gun crowd is that people who can’t logically think this topic would believe that gun owners are reckless and dangerous. Virginia showed us that the exact opposite is true as gun owners from across the country gathered to unite for the most important American value… Freedom. Historic speeches were given by some of the country’s most notable 2ndAmendment Advocates including Erich Pratt, Senior Vice President of Gun Owners of America and Jan Morgan, National Director of 2A Women, among others.
Maybe the anti-gun crowd’s hatred toward gun owners is not rooted in the fact that we will stand up for our freedom, but inherent in the fact that they are willing to give up theirs without a fight. Maybe the anti-freedom crowd’s anger is not at gun owners for their American spirit but at themselves for their lack thereof.
The second amendment is not a privilege. It’s a right, and sometimes we have to remind those who have lost their way. Virginia was a wake-up call to gun-owners who may have forgotten that Democrat lawmakers are hard at work destroying the rights of the people. It was also the place real Americans united to remind legislators why the Bill of Rights was written.
The 2ndAmendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.
