Peaceful & Prodigious: Photos from Monday's Gun Rights Rally in Virginia

"We will not comply!"

Virginians call for Gov. Northam’s removal, thousands protest new gun control measures

Gun-rights rally draws 22,000 to Virginia Capitol; no violence, one arrest reported
"Inside Capitol Square, 6,000 unarmed protesters heard speeches from elected officials and gun proponents, who all vowed to oppose gun control legislation that Gov. Ralph Northam and the new Democratic majority are advocating in the General Assembly. A proposed ban on assault weapons is among the proposals that have drawn particular concern among gun-rights proponents.

“I wish they would really listen to gun owners and hear what we have to say,” said Eric Ollenberger of Newport News. “We’re law-abiding citizens.”

Outside the gates were some of the loudest, most energetic sections of Monday’s rally. About 16,000 opted to remain outside the perimeter — where guns and flag poles were allowed, and where attendees could roam freely without fencing or metal detectors."
