Taking on the NRA

Oddly enough, Tish James did not talk about all the Russia money the NRA laundered to elect Trump. Maybe that’s part of a different case, I hope. But this is great news, anyway:

Virginia declares state of emergency as armed militias threaten state capitol…

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam issued a state of emergency on Wednesday that bars any weapons from the Richmond’s Capitol Square from Friday to Tuesday, after he received credible intelligence that hate groups and armed militias are planning violence at next Monday’s Lobby Day against gun control legislation.

Northam, who discussed the threats at a news conference, said the state’s law enforcement analysis found that the chatter on the internet and other venues mirrored similar messages seen around the time of the 2017 Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally, which left three dead and more than 30 injured.
