A group of white supremacists, anti-government militias, extremists – and what we are assuming are some very fine people – gathered today outside of the the capital building in Richmond, Virginia wearing masquerade outfits to protest background checks for purchasing guns. The right wing groups claim they aren’t there to intimidate anyone; except for the government and anyone that disagrees with them. Most people at the rally wore flamboyant robes and porcelain-like masks while they carried shotguns, pistols, military-style rifles, handguns and even lugged around machine guns.
“We aren’t here to intimidate anyone,” one man wearing a floral mask, white lipstick and carrying an assault rifle stated in a deep southern accent. “But try to take my guns and I’ll fucking kill you!”
As of press time, authorities are hoping that no acts of terror or violence occur.
“When you get this many ‘good guys’ with guns in one spot, a single terrorist would probably only be able to shoot a few people before everyone would open fire, killing the terrorist and at least 30 people around them,” Virginia Governor Ralph Northam stated. “Unfortunately, sometimes it’s just hard to protect people from themselves, but doing background checks before selling guns should be a step in the right direction.”
