The Virginia Citizens Defense League recently organized a rally to protest proposed new gun control laws.
The rally took place in Richmond, Virginia where thousands of pro-gun demonstrators gathered peacefully.
Governor Ralph Northam continues to support the new laws for gun control.
President Trump expressed his views in a series of tweets saying that he would protect the 2nd Amendment.

It didn’t take long before those Virginia Democrats began to make good on their vows to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Virginians.
On Monday, tens of thousands of gun owners and Second Amendment supporters converged on the capital of Richmond to register their staunch opposition to the gun-control proposals.
President Donald Trump spoke briefly about the attempted gun-grab during a wide-ranging interview with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo while in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum, and he made it clear that he was standing alongside gun owners in support of the Second Amendment.
Trump’s remarks about Virginia came after a question about efforts by Democrats in New York to release a substantial number of convicted criminals from prison in addition to a controversial bail reform measure.
Trump simply dismissed what the New York Democrats were doing as “crazy” before shifting his focus to Virginia.
“I think it’s crazy, and I think Virginia is crazy,” the president said.
“They want to take away the guns in Virginia.
You have a governor that’s — I just can’t believe it — but Virginia’s very much in play.
I think we’re going to win the state of Virginia.”
