Thousands rally for gun rights in Richmond, Virginia, amid heavy security

Virginiagun rights rally Thousands of gun owners and gun rights supporters gathered Monday at Virginia's Capitol in Richmond for a "peaceful day to address our Legislature" that appeared to generate none of the violence feared by some state leaders.

Many demonstrators, opposed to proposed gun restrictions, openly displayed military-style semiautomatic rifles. Other wore orange “Guns save lives” stickers as the crowd chanted “USA” and sang the national anthem. Signs read “Come and take it” and “Second Amendment Sanctuary.”

But despite warnings from Gov. Ralph Northam and law enforcement that out-of-state hate groups and militias may incite violence, the protest did not grow heated. A heavy police presence greeted rally goers calmly lining up to enter the state Capitol, where they had to pass through a security checkpoint.

Connie Stanley, 58, from Aylett, Virginia, came to the rally with a group of other women. She sees owning a gun and the Second Amendment as a security issue. She said where she lives, it could take police too long to respond if she calls 911.
