This blog does not usually comment on gun control/gun rights issues. Not much point. It is difficult to change minds in this regard.
Here is an interesting observation about the gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia yesterday.
There was an estimated attendance of 22,000 individuals. A conservative guess is that 90% of those who demonstrated outside the Capitol grounds had at least one firearm. A large number had several. Not one was fired; no one was shot. Yet another demonstration that the guns do not kill people; people kill people.
Naturally there were some nitwits — white supremacists, neo-Nazis, etc. — who are not helpful, showed up. Don’t know about the masked thugs on the left. One woman — not sure of where she fit on the political spectrum — was arrested for wearing a mask in public, apparently a felony in Virginia. Texas once had such a law that was instituted in the 1920s under the administration of Governor Miriam Amanda “Ma” Ferguson as an anti-Ku Klux Klan measure.
