I was a special guest on Townhall.com Triggered Podcast hosted by Storm Paglia and Matt Vespa. First appearance of the New Year. Vespa is having a blast at his first SHOT Show so myself and Townhall’s Julio Rosas, fresh off his Fox News debut on Tucker Carlson Tonight , discussed our observations VCDL Page - Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. of #LobbyDay, #impeachment, and Donald J. Trump at #Davos.

This is my Congressman. I live in Virginia's 8th District. He smeared 10s of thousands of law-abiding and peaceful people at yesterday's VCDL Page - Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc.
#LobbyDay. (Which I covered.) To say I'm disappointed by his remarks is not a surprise. He's backed by gun control groups that echo this caustic, inflammatory rhetoric.

I Went to Lobby Day. Tens of Thousands of Second Amendment Supporters Weren't the Problem. - The Resurgent

I didn’t encounter a single person, armed with long gun or not, who posed a threat to my safety or that of other reporters and attendees.

While most Virginia Democrats won’t budge on their extreme gun control agenda, this Lobby Day clearly had a massive impact. That should worry them. They’ve awoken a Sleeping Giant that’s more empowered to get-out-the-vote (GOTV) and elect more pro-gun candidates to office.

My report at The Resurgent on VCDL Page - Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. Lobby Day.

Instead of heading West to the annual SHOT Show this year, I stayed put here in Virginia. It was too important to miss Lobby Day given the gun control laws being proposed here. These proposals will adversely impact people like me and millions of other law-abiding gun owners here in the Commonwealth....

In an email blast that was *just* sent out by VCDL Page - Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc., they say 30k-50k people were in attendance at today's #LobbyDay2020 #LobbyDay—not 22K+ that's being reported. Hmmmm.

Thanks for following my coverage of VCDL Page - Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. Lobby Day events down in our state capital today. A whirlwind day. Grateful to be home and begin to jot down my observations more concisely for you all by morning at The Resurgent. And thanks to the countless new folks for following! Hope you enjoy my content, reporting, and commentary. I’d like to be a resource. More good stuff coming... 😉 https://www.instagram.com/p/B7j6qu9lNSQ/

Wanted to record a quick video for everyone showing you the key areas to be aware of before you come down to Richmond for VCDL Lobby Day and the 2A rally tomorrow.

Nick Freitas

Amen 🙏🏻 👏🏻

It has been rumored that certain hate groups may try to show up and hijack the 2A rally on Monday.

This rally is for those of us who want to defend 2A rights for EVERY law abiding citizen. Those who peddle in hate and racial supremacy will find no support or aid from us.

We defend everyone’s right to defend themselves and will not allow these groups to pervert that message under any circumstance.

So if you are a member of a hate group...do us all a favor and crawl back to your parents basement.

You are a threat to our citizens and our liberties and we don’t want you in our beloved Commonwealth.

Just recorded a segment for WAMU/NPR—The Kojo Nnami Show— about Lobby Day and my thoughts on it. It will go live on Monday. Corespondent was very nice and respectful and appreciated my perspective on all the updates. I even mentioned how gun control will hurt conservation funding here in Virginia.

Will have the appropriate links for you then!

Gun control is foolish, but ‘Second Amendment sanctuaries' are an affront to rule of law

This article sadly lacks a basic grasp of what Virginia’s 2A sanctuary movement is all about. It’s not about anarchy and lawlessness; it’s about abiding by Article I, Section 13 of our state constitution.

I’m pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment, and completely opposed to Virginia Democrats’ gun control agenda. But the "Second Amendment sanctuaries" cropping up around rural Virginia in response to pending anti-gun legislation in the state Senate are an affront to the rule of law and threaten the viabili...

So the reports of barricades before Lobby Day are now confirmed....

It turns out Democrats do like border fences...but only for 2nd Amendment rallies.

So theoretically if we moved the rally to the border we could probably expect to see a fence up overnight and the Democrats would pay for it!

01/17/2020

Sad to miss SHOT Show this year, but for all of you going have a blast! Would have loved to attend the event with Secretaries Bernhardt and Perdue next week. If you’re going to Vegas, make sure you do. Two very nice guys working for your interests here in DC!

And I hope to see many of you in our state capital this Monday for Lobby Day. If you’re coming here from out-of-state, please do so with good intentions and not distract from the mission of the event. For those asking, I will take all precautions necessary to be safe and be going/meeting with friends while reporting on the ground.

What our Governor and his party are doing here is shameful—and it doesn’t help that some miscreants were/are trying to hijack Lobby Day with their Neo-Nazi/white supremacy nonsense. Event organizers have said there will be zero tolerance for any kind of disruption or idiocy from the latter.

Stay tuned...have a good weekend!

Richmond Judge Allows Northam's Gun Ban To Proceed, Gun Groups Promise to Sue - The Resurgent

Last post of the day, I promise.

A busy day of changes surrounding Lobby Day I've covered. The latest is a Richmond Circuit Court judge denied Gun Owners of America and VCDL Page - Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc.'s request for a temporary injunction—meaning the ban on firearms in Capital Square and surrounding areas in the state capital will forbid guns from tomorrow 5pm until Tuesday 5pm, after Lobby Day has finished. Both groups have signaled their intention to take this to the Virginia Supreme Court, per tweets. via The Resurgent

A Richmond Circuit Court judge issued a three-page ruling denying an emergency injunction to gun rights groups going into Lobby Day.

Big news overlooked by the press in last 24 hours: the new Congressional Western Caucus ESA modernization package. 17 bills to "better protect species" and "to treat property owners, states and local stakeholders as partners rather than obstacles."

Conservation Nation E3: Reformers Draining the Swamp

Don't confuse conservation for preservation. Many people in DC touting conservationist credentials push preservationist attitudes that shut out important stakeholders and push extremist policies. Don't be fooled!

Luckily, I've identified good conservationists for you, and recently spoke to several individuals in Episode 3 of my CFACT video series #ConservationNation. They are just a small sampling of the good stewards working on your behalf here in Washington, DC. I hope to profile more like them throughout the year!

Here's what Safari Club International - SCI and Rep. John Curtis of House Committee on Natural Resources GOP had to say about their achievements and efforts.

Deconstructing Governor Northam's Emergency Declaration Banning Guns: How 2A Supporters Are Responding - The Resurgent

I've read through Governor Northam's emergency declaration banning firearms from tomorrow until Tuesday afternoon and it stinks to high heaven. I've also noted how gun groups, especially VCDL Page - Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc., are responding.

I also noted that a 2012 Virginia law forbids Governors from banning firearms in wake of emergency declarations and how Northam is exploiting the shelter provision of the law to justify this.

I'll be on the ground Monday to report on the event. Please share with your Virginia friends! via The Resurgent

Yesterday afternoon, Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) announced he would be enacting an emergency declaration, EO 49, temporarily banning weapons—including firearms— in Virginia’s Capital Square leading up to Monday’s annual Lobby Day in Richmond, VA. The emergency declaration will be in effect...

Here’s VCDL Page - Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc.’s email blast this AM addressing Governor of Virginia’s emergency declaration, which they are likely to challenge. (A 2012 Virginia law forbids the banning of firearms in an event of emergency declarations, so this is very interesting.) VCDL notes Governor Northam nor his law enforcement detail briefed them on any potential disruptions for Monday’s proceedings. The email also stressed that Lobby Day isn’t a protest—but a rally. They also encouraged supporters and participants to be aware of suspicious people and alert them to police on Monday. I’ve screen shotted much of the email for you and will include in my reporting up at The Resurgent shortly.

Virginia Governor Declares State Of Emergency Ahead Of Pro-Gun Rally

Every Lobby Day in Virginia on record has been peaceful and civil. I last went in 2016 and will be there Monday. If any white nationalists or alt rights losers try to disrupt it, I will report on it and excoriate them/call them out. They should be rejected and have no place in our state capital—but banning carry by peaceful 2A activists is the wrong move.

Concerned about a reprise of the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville in 2017, Gov. Ralph Northam says he's declaring a state of emergency ahead of a pro-gun rally and lobby day on Monday.

ICYMI my latest Conservation Nation up on Facebook!

In Episode 3 of CONSERVATION NATION, host Gabriella Hoffman interviews several conservation stakeholders who are implementing reforms in the name of true conservation. First, she spoke with Safari Club International—a hunting rights organization that boasts 50,000 members across 180 chapters here and abroad. Then she visited with Rep. John Curtis (R-UT), who sits on the House Natural Resources Committee to hear what gains have been made there.

TY Nick Freitas! 👏🏻

If Virginia Democrats want to ban firearms while we are in session they should have the courage to take credit for it instead of blaming law enforcement for their decision.

The Dick Act of 1902 - Gun Control FORBIDDEN! Were you aware of this law? DICK ACT of 1902 - CAN'T BE REPEALED (GUN CONTROL FORBIDDEN) - Protection Against Tyrannical Government It would appear that the administration is counting on the fact that the American Citizens don't know this, their rights and the constitution. Don't prove them right. The Dick Act of 1902 also known as the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws. It also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities. **SPREAD THIS TO EVERYONE ** The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia, henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and District of Columbia, the unorganized militia and the regular army. The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy. The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The President of the United States has zero authority without violating the Constitution to call the National Guard to serve outside of their State borders. The National Guard Militia can only be required by the National Government for limited purposes specified in the Constitution (to uphold the laws of the Union; to suppress insurrection and repel invasion). These are the only purposes for which the General Government can call upon the National Guard. Sources: http://www.civilrightstaskforce.info/gun_control_forbidden.… http://rosieontheright.com/what-is-the-militia-bill-h-r-11…/ Get this message out to all your email contacts. It's time to learn about your rights. The Democrats don't seem to worry about breaking laws or the U.S. Constitution. They do things regardless even if it goes against the Constitution which they swore to abide by when each one of them took office. That itself is an impeachable offense!!!
