Aside from a handful of local news outlets, no mainstream media companies are reporting on this story. However, at FreedomWire, we consider stories about defending our Second Amendment right to bear arms to be too important not to cover.

On Tuesday, armed patriots of the Virginia militia took to the streets to march in protest of far-Left authoritarian Governor Ralph Northam, who insists on disarming American citizens.

The “Open Carry Rally” reportedly drew hundreds of heavily armed activists who marched from the Capitol to the Siegel Center of Richmond, Virginia, where the state House and Senate gathered in person for a special legislative session.

Footage of the march that surfaced online features one dedicated patriot named Mike, who said the militia is fighting for “freedom, the Constitution in its entirety, freedom from the boot that continues to oppress us,” referring to Governor Northam’s unconstitutional gun restrictions.

Combatting the Left’s narrative, he clarified that they “stand for all people regardless of race, religion, or creed,” adding, “We stand for freedom. We are sick of being oppressed by a tyrannical government, including Ralph Northam, and the rest of his cronies that fill our senate and house in Virginia.”

When asked what message he would send to Governor Northam, Mike vowed, “As far as Northam? Virginia will not fall.”

Although the Virginia legislature’s special session that the militia marched to was not meeting to discuss gun laws, they gathered regardless to show the lawmakers that they will be persistent in defending their Second Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution.

Governor Northam, one of the most far-Left governors in the country, has relentlessly worked to ban the sale of guns and ammunition. He has signed several restrictive gun control bills into law and is now attempting to ban “assault weapons” entirely. This bill failed in its first go-round in February, but it is tabled until 2021.

This militia is everything America needs right now – a peaceful show of force to help these radical Leftists understand that the American people have power against a tyrannical government. That is part of what the Founding Fathers intended the Second Amendment for, after all, as the founding of our country is very literally based on freedom from tyranny, even if that means our own government.

In case any liberal tries to argue that with you, just tell them that Thomas Jefferson once said in a 1787 letter to James Madison: “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”
