Use Your Words

2020 is starting out on a weird note - and watching Virginia shows that this is the case  On 1/20/2020 there will be a protest against the new gun control laws that the legislature is proposing in Virginia.  What makes this protest interesting is that the gun rights supporters will be joined by Antifa - not as counterprotesters but as protestors WITH them against the new gun control legislation.  If that wasn't weird enough - West Virginia is offering cities and counties in Virginia to join West Virginia to keep their second amendment rights.  And of course, you can't have a protest without celebrities coming in and doing what celebrities do.  In this case - David Hogg.
