Re: Richmond VA is in a state of emergency.....

Technically, the 2nd amendment says nothing about your ability to purchase arms. Only that you have the right to keep and bear them.

As for the undercover Antifa people dressed as MAGA hat wearing people, give me a break. Why is it so easy to believe that there is a massive conspiracy going on and not just that some people are ****ty?
If you can post without being a condescending smart ass, maybe I can answer.

Why doesn't Trump allow visitors in the White House to have guns? Doesn't he care about the 2nd Amendment? That seems sort of hypocritical right? He should encourage everyone around him to have guns and to remove the security checks for people entering the White House.

Not likely, as if you feel I was being condescending, then there is not much I can do about that. Do you really believe that there is a conspiracy and Antifa agents are undercover posing as white nationalist? If so, then you deserve to be condescended to.

I believe there ARE places where the guns of civilians should stay outside. I believe in following our gun laws.

I don't think there's a vast conspiracy to impersonate conservatives. However, to deny that Antifa members have done this at times is to choose ignorance. I don't think it's an organized movement, but it happens. I've seen similar things happen at other protests. For example, aggressive pro-abortion supporters posing as pro lifers and acting in aggressive, violent ways.

It probably happens from the other direction too. Some people are just crappy.

The governor of VA is a dangerous idiot with no regard for the Constitution.

Sure, like those pro-abortion people that posed as anti-abortion people and killed some doctors. Oh, nevermind, these were actual anti-abortion people.

Do you have some sources for this belief outside of propaganda websites?

Perhaps those are just maga guys posing as Antifa guys posing as maga guys? WHOA!!!

He isn't the only one that believes it. There are also Senators in Virginia that are warning of that very thing happening. Just because someone owns a gun and/or is a Trump supporter does not make them a White Nationalist.

All of you leftwingers wouldn't have to use semantics and hyperbole if the people you vote for would abide by the Constitution. Marduk I know you can't vote in the US, so that isn't directed at you.
There have already been accounts of antifa being bussed in (7 buses as of Sat. night) with some wearing MAGA hats and NRA shirts. This whole thing is a staged trap. I expect there will be some altercations, but I also expect if you arrest the instigators and check their voting record it won't be right-leaning.

The Virginia House Republican leader had this to say: “Any group that comes to Richmond to spread white supremacist garbage, or any other form of hate, violence, or civil unrest isn’t welcome here.”
“House Republicans reject any attempt by any group to infuse any kind of twisted or extreme worldview into this fundamentally democratic exercise,” Gilbert’s statement continued. “So there’s no mistake, this is my message to any group that would subvert this event: you are not welcome here.”

It completely astounds me that some portray a protest of a complete violation of numerous constitutional amendments as a bad thing. Lobby day is an annual event, it happens every year. This year just happens to be a big deal because Northam has decided to violate the rights of the citizens of the Great Commonwealth and put up cages and fencing to create a facade of fear. This is a trial run for them, don't think for a second this is an isolated case.
Hey it’s entirely possible I missed the reason for the state of emergency.

I googled “Richmond state of emergency” and the first thing that came up for me was something about a repeat of a while supremacist march in 2017 or something as justification for it.

Apologies if I got it wrong?

Maybe you should look into Amanda Chase's interesting views on things before you use her as a credible source of conspiracy theories.

Since when is everybody who supports our 2nd Amendment rights a white nationalist?
Pretty broad brush.

I think the concern today is that the majority of pro gun protesters are members of various white nationalist groups.

I am astounded at how hyper-right wing and ultra conservative TAM has become since I left it some years ago, and how much the mods have let it become so. And for right wing political leanings to be so righteous about free speech, there's something approaching zero thoughtfulness regarding it when it's not all MAGA, all the time.

In all honesty, I've thought about leaving again as a consequence. I worry it's becoming an echo chamber.
