(Reuters) - Virginia’s House Republican leader said on Saturday that white supremacists and any other groups trying to spread “hate, violence, or civil unrest” were not welcome at a pro-gun rally in the state’s capital on Monday, which is expected to draw thousands.

The House Republican leader’s statement came a day after the state’s top court upheld a ban by the governor on weapons in the area around the Capitol in Richmond where the rally is set to take place by demonstrators protesting against Democrats’ push to stiffen the state’s gun laws.

“Any group that comes to Richmond to spread white supremacist garbage, or any other form of hate, violence, or civil unrest isn’t welcome here,” House Republican leader Todd Gilbert said in a statement. “While we and our Democratic colleagues may have differences, we are all Virginians and we will stand united in opposition to any threats of violence or civil unrest from any quarter.”

Militias, neo-Nazis and other groups have vowed to attend the rally. Authorities say they are expecting several thousand people and are trying to keep the event from becoming violent.

2. A Republican said Donald Trump and his staff are not welcome in Virginia?

Somehow I find that hard to believe.

16. The date and location have been puposefully

chosen for this rally.

Richmond, capital of the Confederacy.

January 20, date for celebrating the birthday of MLK.

Billed as a gun rights rally. It is drawing neo Nazis and other racial supremacist groups who are vowing to defy Governor Northam's ban on weapons at the rally.

Would not want to be in Richmond tomorrow. Sounds like Charlottesville deja vu.

20. MLK Day has been designated "Lobby Day" in Virginia for several years now

All kinds of groups have come to the Capitol to lobby their representatives on MLK Day.

21. Yes, I learned about that later, from an online

article, after my post.

But, i also learned that some of the hate groups that encouraged their members to show up, thought the date and location fit their views. Fortunately some of the worst of them who had made threats and plans were stopped by FBI agents.

I am happy that it did not turn into a Charlottesville deja vu. But, unfortunately, concerns about safety kept some people the area from following through with plans for celebrating MLK day.
