Scenes From Virginia’s Capitol: Militarized Police Arrive In Richmond

Social media users uploaded photos of military style equipment in Virginia

(Infowars) – Following a temporary emergency declaration by Governor Ralph Northam, large elements of the Virginia State Police have been photographed arriving in the capital city of Richmond, bringing with them a ROOK armored SWAT carrier.

The temporary emergency has been issued ahead of Monday’s Lobby Day Demonstration, in which tens of thousands of 2nd Amendment activists are expected to descend on the State Capitol in protest of Democrat-sponsored gun control and confiscation bills making their way through the newly-blue state legislature.

As previously reported by The National File, Northam’s emergency declaration has been issued with the intent of disarming protestors, something the event’s organizers, the VCDL, say violates Virginia law, and are currently fighting in court alongside Gun Owners of America.

In addition to the arrival of militarized police, recent photos show the construction of fencing around the Capitol building – fencing that appears to act a pen, meant to contain Lobby Day attendees in a confined space.

Since winning a majority in the state legislature last November, largely due to extensive redistricting efforts, Democrat lawmakers have become increasingly aggressive on Second Amendment issues, even floating the ideas of military action against gun owners, and the arrest of law enforcement officers who refuse to cooperate.

In response, thanks to a massive grassroots effort, over 100 Virginia municipalities have voted to become “2nd Amendment sanctuaries,” including Virginia Beach, the state’s largest city, vowing not to enforce any unconstitutional gun laws coming out of Richmond.

Below: The battle for the Republic intensifies as the state of Virginia declares a National Emergency in preparation for the Rally Against Gun Confiscation. First and Second Amendment rights advocates are gathering from all across the country to peaceably protest Democrat lawmakers’ sweeping gun control measures that could very well create a constitutional crisis and spark the second American Civil War.


  1. Trump should send in the Marines to keep an eye on the cops and politicians that are keeping an eye on America’s citizens that are keeping an eye on the cops and politicians under the eye of the CONSTITUTION

  2. I commanded units in 5 nations, on 3 continents – multiple times. I always found that interesting, because we had more equipment, more fighting vehicles, more men, more munitions, and more money invested in the defense of those nations than they did! Now we could, I guess, just leave and allow Congress woman Omar defend her own nation. In fact that sounds great!!!

  3. Here we have the DEMOCRAT party on display.Looks like Chinese military take down of riots.This is what we call Democrats today,Communist /Marxist dictators destroying it’s citizens by disarming them so when they regain power you will be taken down ala Commie style

  4. Its difficult to understand WHY THE CITIZENS OF VIRGINIA are willing to put up with this Governor, You should start a petition drive to get enough signatures to demand a recall of this guy before he does more damage to your state, Guns is just the start of your loss of freedom. He has a lot more in store for you if you dont remove him from office.

  5. Great set up for another Government Straw-Hat event using a Gov plant to instigate trouble with the intent to incite and escalate violence. These plants/instigators may even be paid for by George Soros through many of his Left/Liberal Radical groups. The icing on the cake is the Liberal/Left Fake Media (MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC) will all play along with one sided anti 2nd Amendment narrative. Then they will find a way to blame Trump for the whole fiasco.

  6. I believe that another Civil War is something that none of US want. However, it’s becoming more and more evident that we may not have a choice. Back when Obama was elected, I began stocking up on ammunition and went out and bought more guns. It looks as though that was smart thinking on my part. Me and mine will stand with our brothers and sisters in Virginia and in any other state where Patriotic Americans are taking a stand against corruption, treason, anarchy and socialism!

    • you know the funny thing about this is that it might be an lol conspiracy between politicians and gun companies —– everytime something like this comes up guns and ammo sell faster than hookers on payday

  7. This is mini Mike Bloomberg & George Soros along with several others who poured millions into making VA Blue. This is their stand against Guns. They are not allowed to use troops against it’s own citizens and will be stopped by the fed’s. The state police do not have enough people to fight this. This is not good, I hope a resolution is found but this is exactly why the founders gave us the 2nd amendment to create militias to protect against a tyrannical government. This is what we have confronting us in VA. God bless & god speed to all who are going to fight this war.

  8. Just have to wonder what will happen if the Virginia state police decided to side with the protesters and protect the second amendment???
    Even better how would the governor and his dumocratic lawmakers react if they were escorted out to the front lawn of the capitol building to face their protesters!!!

  9. Mao said that all political power comes from the barrel of a gun. That is why the progressive Demoncrats want to the people’s right to have one away so that they have ALL the power to do what they want. Just pay all the taxes they want from you and pray, pay and obey!

  10. How come the democrats can break the constitution. They use the constitution to impeach the president but they’re allowed? Trump this is your chance to throw it back in their faces. They even showed that they will arrest policemen for this. This is a step towards communism which is clearly the democrats agenda. People need to rise up and vote them out in November. It’s the only way, otherwise our country is screwed. The first amendment and second has now been taken away. They’re allowing illegals to vote which is another violation of the constitution. I’m surprised nobody offered $80 million to off Nancy and crew.

  11. This is how Democrats operate. Run on one issue and act on something totally different. The Democrats ran nationally on Health Care and other social issues but have only acted on Impeachment. The VA Governor did not run on gun take away but is acting on it. Trump ran on the economy and reducing big government and he did what he said he would do. You can’t trust the Democrats to do what they say, they always have a hidden agenda, more power and control for them and less freedom and more taxes for the people.

  12. This Northam piece of excrement needs to be arrested for insurrection against the Virginia and US constitutions before tomorrow. This is a huge powder keg that could literally blow-up nationwide if a spark lights it up tomorrow. President Trump, WHERE ARE YOU??? Are you blind???, You Mr President need to intervene on this issue immediately. This state government is circumventing the Constitution and this is completely unacceptable by this tyrannical state government. You have the power given to you by the Constitution to stop insurrection at all costs for the betterment and internal peace of our great nation. This is priority ONE for you in less than 24hrs. Trump in 2020

    • How about the voters of Virginia? They wanted this man to run their state. State’s rights are involved as well…they are getting what the majority want.

  13. So the Virginia Governor is utilizing the state police to curb our first and second amendment rights rather than have them do the job we pay them to do and keep us safe. Seems to be the Democrat way of life, give themselves more power and to hell with the people.

  14. No matter how ‘Peaceful’ this protest is by the ‘Protectors of the Constitution’…The Antifa will come and instigate to turn it into another Riot, blaming the Conservatives and Labeling them the instigators and ‘Demostic Terrorists’ giving Northam more reason to take away gun-rights!!! It’s a set-up!!!

  15. Then the people need to storm the state capital with real weapons and arrest the governor for breaking the laws of the constitution. This has to stop. This needs to be the kind of thing that puts fear back into our employees.
    After his sentencing his punishment Should be the firing squad For high crimes and treason And failing to up hold the law of the land.
    Enough is enough. These damn tyrants need to be taught a lesson.

  16. Also sounds like they let the democrats do the redistricting. I suggest returning the districts back to the way they were at least until AFTER the 2020 census.Start a vote of no confidence in the state of Virginia legislature and governorship and hold a new election. If the current elected body don’t stand down. Arrest them! If the people stand together, the democrats have to acknowledge the primacy of their constituents or face prison. Above all, do not give into violence. It will not solve anything.

  17. This is why elections are so important, if you keep voting in , especially Democrats into office they will take away or try to take away your constitutional rights and it happening right before our eyes. Let 2020!! Be the year all citizens vote to remove and keep these people out of office. I pray for this state that no blood shed happens

  18. These laws were written with the intent of using any disruption as evidence that the Virginia Govt was right to disarm it’s citizens. There was an article that Obanana was behind these laws getting written and passed. Whatever happens was fully anticipated and will be used for more control of the people.

  19. They can have all the equipment they want, they will be outnumbered 50-1 easily with that number compounded should any action be taken against American patriots.

    • No civilian or military personnel wants a civil war amongst family members & friends. Been there, done that. It was beyond hell from all that I’ve read. But if there is a next time, keep in mind, there are at least 75,000,000 citizens that are well armed and the majority of them are willing to sacrifice even with their lives to protect the liberties and freedoms this great nation bears for ALL of us. Although better equipped with military style hardware, the standing army of the USA is a maximum of 1,000,000 within the US borders. These “soldiers” in mass will desert in a fight against their families, friends, and fellow citizens. So, liberal minded socialist Democrats need be very afraid of poking the sleeping multiple millions of citizens poised to rise against you if you continue to prod against the law-abiding gun-owners of this country. There are not enough jail cells available to hold multiple millions of US citizens. But with the armed citizens of this great nation holding hundreds of millions of ammunition rounds, there is more than enough to take down a few hundred out-of-control tyrannical politicians from DC to every state if need be to preserve 250+ years of this Republic. We as fellow citizens must learn to get along through compromise not by force of rule. We are not a perfect nation, never will be, but WE THE PEOPLE of the USA and this Republic are the 100% envy of the rest of the world.

  20. They can’t kill us all.
    Ban together and stop anyone from taking any Patriots.
    If we let them they wont stop.
    We must stop the treasonous snakes from totally destroying America.
    It’s our duty.
    Never STAND DOWN.

  21. It is a sad shame that communist China has occupied the governor’s mansion in Virginia. At least, West Virginia has extended the Samaritan hand to counties and cities in Virginia, that if they secede, West Virginia will welcome them to join the State. Take me home, country roads.

    • THAT might actually be a GOOD THING TO DO! Realize that Virginia would get MUCH smaller then, and will lose lots of representation in DC, WV would get LARGER with that much more representation — and WV are Virginians who seceded in 1863 for disavowing slave holders who remained in VA, so the 118 counties would be with the patriots instead of the losers.


  22. Under the Constitution and it’s Amendments what Our Founders wanted was, we should have EQUAL power of the government in armament (so we could overcome tyranny), “People forget, the government is GOVERNED BY THE CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE, We did not ok this governor’s behavior! So, you know what this exhibition of power by the Governor is? Do you want to see what this example shows? Look again, They have SWAT, They have trucks, they have M16’s etc, and guess what WE DON’t…SO The 2nd Amendment is ALREADY SERIOUSLY INFRINGED and this Governor wants to start a war and take your guns away, is this OK with YOU?


    • If you are in Virginia, I’d say grab a copy of several books and be ready to make use of them. In the 80s they were in print and told how to change many semi-auto weapons to full auto ones. While it currently is illegal to do so, if a shooting war starts in VA, it will spread and all bets will be off. Even back then the lowly Ruger 10-22 was subject of one of those books. While it may not seem like much, would you want to face a HV hollow point .22LR firing 10-22 with a 50 round mag at full auto if you were one of the National Guardsmen? Sadly, even a police officer with a bullet proof vest has been killed in the past by a shot from a .22. As for the M-16, there already are more powerful weapons in the hands of the citizens than those. Many hunting rifles exceed what the M-16 can do at a distance. And depending on the grade of bullet proof vest the LEO is wearing, many will not stop rounds from those hunting rifles.

    • I know what you mean, Don, and I partially agree with you. However, the State and local police agencies must follow orders. On the other hand, as is the case in the military, while you have to follow orders – providing that they are LAWFUL orders. If the Governor gives you orders to confiscate privately owned firearms, as long as the weapons are not brandished in a real or perceived threatening manner, such an order is not lawful.

    • Glenn, I don’t know about VA but in Florida, we do not swear an oath to the Governor or legislature, it is to the US Constitution and the Florida Constitution. So as the VA Constitution has to follow the US Constitution, confiscating weapons as blackface wearing Northam wants would be an illegal order. He might find his National Guard troops pointing their weapons at him.

    • @Don you mean the militarized cops that are to keep the peace at the state Capitol on Monday? I doubt they had much say in the matter. I bet more than half don’t even want to be there. The other half are probably the over zealous bully cops that love situations like this. Those cops probably hope somebody does get out of hand so they can justify beating the crap out of someone.

  23. From: Sen. Amanda Chase
    Sadly, I am posting this, knowing that the Governor of Virginia has declared a State of Emergency in our state.
    I want you to be aware of how we are being set up.
    Does the Patriot Act ring a bell?
    Does the National Defense Authorization Act ring a bell?
    If people show up wearing any kind of uniform, patch or other symbol on their clothing signifying they belong to a militia and something goes wrong, you could/will be held as a domestic terrorist.
    If anyone steps out of line, all it takes is one person, it may even be a government plant….if that plant does anything to disrupt the rally, you could/will be arrested as a domestic terrorist.
    The Governor, using the media has already set the stage for this to happen.
    He has already laid the groundwork to make the entire movement look like insurrection.
    It will be used to put the rest of the nation on notice of what will happen to you, if you resist.
    They have used the Southern Poverty Law Center over the last 15 years to lay the groundwork.
    They have labeled us as potential domestic terrorist for a long time now.
    Anyone who has ever related to the 3%er’s, a militia, or just belonged to any Patriot group…the groundwork has been laid to brand you as a domestic terrorist.
    They have gone out of their way since the Obama years to insure they had us labeled, but it didn’t start with Obama. It started with the Patriot Act under the Bush administration.
    We are being played by a well oiled machine, these things have been in the works for many years.
    They are kicking things into high gear. Military veterans were/are even listed as potential domestic terrorist.
    We were told not once, but several times by the current President, “It’s Not Me they are after, It’s You, The American People.“
    Their actions over the last three years have shown you he was right, they are coming after us full speed ahead and they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore.
    Sic semper tyrannis, keep your head on a swivel and know what’s going on around you at all times, at Lobby Day 1/20/20.
    Everyone be safe out there….Thus always to tyrants.

    • Sounds like Senator Chase has been watching this develop for some time and is well aware of the swamp! Senator Chase for President after Trump!!!
