The Democrats in Virginia, after millions of Bloomberg donations flipped the House/Senate to blue, are pushing for gun control legislation, and Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency to ban guns at Monday’s rally, Jan. 20, 2020. Northam banned all weapons from inside the Capitol Square on Jan. 20, 2020, citing “credible and serious threats,” but did not elaborate.
The rally has been peaceful and a law enforcement source tells The Gateway Pundit that an estimated 25,000 people attended that Monday rally. Sheriffs at the pro-gun rally were seen holding a sign that read, “We Support the Second Amendment.”

Today several Virginia senate Democrats joined Republicans to block Governor Northam’s ban on assault weapons in the state.
The AP reported:
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s push to ban the sale of assault weapons failed on Monday after some of his fellow Democrats balked at the proposal.
Senators voted to shelve the bill for the year and ask the state crime commission to study the issue, an outcome that drew cheers from a committee room packed with gun advocates.
Four moderate Democrats joined Republicans in Monday’s committee vote, rejecting legislation that would have prohibited the sale of certain semiautomatic firearms, including popular AR-15 style rifles, and banned the possession of magazines that hold more than 12 rounds.
