On Monday, tens of thousands of Second Amendment supporters will meet at the Virginia state capitol to protest a slew of gun-control measures being pushed through the legislature.
And American Policy Center President Tom DeWeese, a long-time constitutional activist, warned that chaos is afoot.
In a startling Facebook post, DeWeese claimed that a reliable source told him buses are being loaded with Anti-Fascist (ANTIFA) protestors who will pretend to be supporters of President Trump and the NRA in an attempt to make them look bad.
“I’m in Richmond and have just received information from a very reliable source concerning Monday’s rally against the legislature’s gun grabs,” he said. “Antifa have rented seven buses to bring in their thugs to cause trouble. The report says they will be wearing MAGA hats and wearing NRA garb. They will pretend to be pro gun people.
He continued, “Meanwhile others posing as democrats holding anti gun signs will stand on the side. The Antifa thugs, pretending to be pro gun, will attack the sign holders. Making it look like the pro gun people have started violence. This is the plan. If you are attending the rally be aware. Be very careful.”
Gun groups have projected upwards of 130,000 people attending the rally.
Tensions will be running so high, in fact, that Governor Ralph Northam has already announced a State of Emergency across Virginia, according to NPR.
DeWeese’s report coincides with the reasoning behind the state of emergency, as Northam said, “We have received credible intelligence from our law enforcement agencies that there are groups with malicious plans for the rally that is planned for Monday.”
