On Thursday, federal law enforcement officials arrested several white supremacists who, we are told, wanted to shoot up the “Lobby Day” rally in Virginia on Monday where 100,000 Second Amendment supporters will demonstrate.
How fortuitous for the government. The arrests are giving Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and other opponents of gun rights, a perfect excuse to portray all gun owners as mouth breathing, racist hicks who can’t be trusted to carry guns anywhere.
Northam successfully fought off a challenge to his firearms ban in the state capitol in advance of Monday’s rally. Several gun rights groups had sued the governor, looking to overturn the ban.
