NO GUNS ALLOWED AT VIRGINIA CAPITOL AS COMMONWEALTH GEARS UP FOR MASSIVE RALLY ON MONDAY

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, a prominent gun-control advocacy group, announced it would cancel its Martin Luther King Jr. Day vigil and advocacy effort, which the group has co-hosted for nearly three decades, citing “credible threats to public safety that have been promoted and encouraged by gun extremists.”

“The individuals who seek to turn a day which is traditionally about citizens exercising their First Amendment rights and participating in the democratic process into a platform for political violence are trying to destroy our democracy,” the group said in a statement. “They refuse to accept the results of the 2019 election in Virginia — in which the people of the Commonwealth voted for stronger gun laws — and they are promoting the message that ‘the people with the guns make the rules.'”
