Gun Rights Supporters March in Front of Virginia Capitol Building With Flags

Supporters of gun rights marched through the streets of Richmond, Virginia, on January 20 as part of a planned protest against changes to the state’s gun laws.

The Virginia Pilot reported that Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency ahead of the rally over threats of “armed militia groups storming our Capitol.” The order banned weapons of all kinds from the Capitol grounds through Tuesday.
