    So, tens of people.

I said " No offense, but there's no need to be walking around with a firing grip on your gun". He made some crack about maintaining control of his weapon at all times, although 10 000 other people had no problem controlling theirs. Still, that's small potatoes. For such a large crowd, everyone was extremely decent, respectful, polite, safe, and not loony.

    So they ignored the governor's illegal request to ban guns from the rally?

    Guns banned inside the cage, not out on the streets.

    Notice I didn't mention Maryland.
    Just going through a few threads trying to catch up on the momentous day in Richmond since I couldn't make it there myself and noticed this post. Actually, there were quite a few MD people there. These two guys are friends of mine (from when I used to live in Gerrymarylanderstan) and commented that a Richmond PD cruiser stopped where they were standing and out popped the officer for a quick selfie! Also, if you happened to see signs that said "More Patriots Than You Have Handcuffs" those (the signs, not necessarily the people holding the signs as they get shared around) were from MD as well. Just wanted to set the record straight for posterity.

    Opinion: Peaceful Protest Shows Wide Support for the Second Amendment
    WSJJanuary 21, 2020, 6:38 PM CST
    On Jan. 20, 2020, more than 20,000 gun rights supporters turned out in Richmond, Virginia for their Second Amendment right to bear arms without violence—despite many, including Gov. Ralph Northam, pushing the idea that this was going to be another Charlottesville. Image: Essdras M. Suarez/Zuma Wire

    i maintain just fine control of my weapon using its buffer as an arm rest. he should seek better slinging options.

    I was standing next to Scruff during that conversation. While i applaud the show of force at times like that, with tens of thousands of people in tight quarters, you’re right: there are plenty of better sling options for crowds then a bungee single point. Not every walk with a rifle has to be tactical.
