Virginia's highest court upholds weapons ban at gun rally

Source: AP

By DENISE LAVOIE

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ó Virginiaís highest court on Friday upheld a ban on firearms at an upcoming pro-gun rally in the stateís capital, an event that authorities feared could erupt in violence at the hands of armed extremists.

The Virginia Supreme Courtís decision came a day after gun-rights groups sued to overturn the ban that Gov. Ralph Northam issued earlier this week, citing credible threats of ďarmed militia groups storming our Capitol.Ē

The lawsuit and court rulings came as the FBI arrested six men who authorities linked to a white supremacist group known as The Base. At least three of them were planning to attend the pro-gun rally on Monday on the grounds of the state Capitol in Richmond, according to an official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss an active investigation.

Virginia has become Ground Zero in the nationís raging debate over gun control, as a new Democratic majority in the state legislature has promised to pass an array of restrictions, including universal background checks and a red-flag law.

Gun-rights groups are asking a judge to block the Virginia governor's ban on firearms at a massive pro-gun rally scheduled for next week. Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday, Jan. 15, announced a state of emergency and banned all weapons from the rally at the Capitol. (Dean Hoffmeyer/Richmond Times-Dispatch via AP)

1. Good!

Glad this governor didn't get run out of town for his youthful indiscretion (to put it mildly)... he's turning out to be a very good governor for that state.
