  2. The dentist had to glue off of fake chip to replace the chip that Rodney Wilson Portland Police Officer broke off when you smashed my face into a steel screen. 1991.

  3. If somebody only had a gun they could have shot him when he brutally attacked me wow I was handcuffed. KKK attacking a black man handcuffed. Corporal Hamilton witnessed the whole thing she black. She's a police. Blue blood. Racism police with guns. Police do not need guns.

  4. Don’t be fooled, your perception and definition of the left is MSM imposed. Here is what the true left has always believed. True left, True right, we’re on the same side where individual rights are concerned…. read on….

  5. Look at all those serious faces. They mean business. I wouldn't want to be a cop or politician in Virginia right now. Good for you people of Virginia.

  6. There is no threat from the protestors. The threat is the ones the democrats bussed in. For all of you who fail to understand history. Let me share this.
    1774 the British tried to ban guns from the four fathers. This is what set off the revolution. All the rest added to it but this was the one thing that set it off.
    During this time the British used soldiers to try to cause violence during the protest then to give them the reason to take the guns. And with democrats bringing Antifa in they are using the same playbook. The democrats are hoping Antifa sets it off to have a reason to take the guns from the ones protesting this illegal action. And the government can not ban a freedom give to the American people by the founding fathers. Not the illegal aliens. Get ready America. This is what the democrats want. They want to destroy our freedoms to bring back a modern slavery as in the people of America being dependent for housing, medical, jobs and money from them. The democrats supported the same thing back then. Made people work and depend on them. And they are doing the same again. They want us to work for them have no say. We the people have had enough. We have been taking back our country and this stupid lady fails to understand the freedoms we have

  7. LIES FAKE NEWS you hoped for death because you are disgusting; all you got was law abiding citizens who love America!!! PRINT THAT!

  8. Not a whimper from the gun rights people when Trump initiated his ban on March 23, 2018, the Department of Justice announced a plan to change the regulatory status of bump stocks. … The ban went into effect on March 26, 2019, by which owners of bump stocks were required to destroy them or surrender them to ATF, punishable by 10 years imprisonment and $250,000 fine.

  9. Hey Gov Blackface and DNC, nbc cbs abc nyt ap wp……, Unless American citizens protesting peacefully is your bag there’s NOTHING TO SEE. So sorry for you narrative.
    But this November WILL BE SOMETHING TO SEE.. and it ain’t just gonna be a narrative.

  10. Limiting really has anyone in BC actually read the laws are trying to pass it's more than just limiting guns are literally trying to take them away from us good job on telling half-truths
    guess you can't be completely fake news if you don't tell the complete truth

  11. None of you media personnel are believable anymore!
    Like the boy who cried wolf!
    Your ratings are going in the toilet!

  12. DOWN WITH THE YT-MSM ALLIANCE!
    I am quite tired of this communist monopoly on "truth" and media organizations.
    I DO NOT want to watch "official" sources of information in all the top recommendations.

  13. No mention or fears of Antifa, who caused the documented violence at Charlottesville. No fears of 2nd Amendment being erased by Virginia's Democrats either. Taking away rights is what Communists, NAZIs, and Democrats do, even the most fundamental and constitutional right to defend oneself with firearms. Socialism = Totalitarianism.

  14. This is simply MSM pushing their anti gun legislation. Amazing that a shooting happened right before this. Remember folks a vote for a democrat is a vote for socialism and communism. Democrats are the biggest threat to the American way of life. Trump 2020

  15. LOL. Looks like your boogie man fears for political gain just gave y’all a big kick in the nuts. Gun owners are the MOST LAW ABIDING CITIZENS IN THIS COUNTRY. Sorry lib media, ur not covering an ANTIFA rally.

  16. NBC would love nothing more than for violence to erupt. How else will they be able to make money through their sponsors? There's not much marketing potential if no one is watching!

  17. "Richmond on high edge" … And then they interview two clueless teenagers of some color…Its FILTH .if you can't see what they're doing you have not been blessed with God given common horse sense

  18. It's a peaceful rally. Keep it up MSNBC. Lies 24/7. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10158288929161159&id=15418366158

  19. Owning firearms in today's society is a privilege not a right…Just as there are certain things you must do to own & drive a car, so it should be with firearms

  20. BTW.
    Not enough Mexicans working for the government.
    That grass around the capitol looks horrible.
    Keep killing babies, my black face Nazi governor, "MAMMY!"

  21. Lies lies and lies NBC is controlled by the Democrats plain and simple. I saw on another posting of theirs, how biased they truly are, I had to stop watching before I threw my phone against the wall

  22. America America may God shed its Grace's on these, these people. We are trying to protect freedom and it isnt free. In fact is very expensive, but well worth it. We can always be China or Cuba. That easy.we the sheeple

  23. its 6 pm on the day of the protest im writing this
    no counter protest ever happened
    no violence of any kind
    75% came armed 25% heavily armed all if the citys downtown was like a music festival with the number of people that showed up
    and shot show (the big once a year gun industry convention) was going on in Vegas at the same time and a lot of the big names in the gun world where at it and not at the rally

  24. Narrative fall flat!!! People of all colors and united for the same purpose.
    So, I’m waiting for the video reporting the success of the peaceful protest!

  25. Voters should RECALL the governor & congressman who violate the 2nd Amendment ! Or IMPEACH them for TRYANNY ,SEDITION against the CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS of We the People .

  26. Shocking I went to Virginia over 15 yrs ago…seemed like a very friendly place… people were extremely nice…maybe things have changed ? 🤔 I'm Cuban white skinned, I look Italian so maybe that's why no1 treated me bad… lol 😁! Actually enjoyed working in Virginia…scary mountains dark at night only complaint…God bless 🙏!

  27. Haha, State of Emergency… Keep stoking the flames of fear and watch ratings plummet even more….Peaceful citizens with firearms…No one got hurt…Antifa played a role in Charlottesville, report that….No Antifa today….No Violence……Remember, an armed society is a polite society…Have a wonderful day….

  29. Fear Mongering NBC Fake News! The safest place to be is in place with law abiding gun owners! The unsafest place to be is in a gun free zone these politicians pass!

  30. You fu$n ignorant reporters…. so sad the “peaceful rally” didn’t melt down to your sick twisted narrative”! So as usual you all had to lie and fabricate the false info you think is news! Not one fire was set no stores were looted and not one person was hurt??? Crazy you can’t hold a memorial in Chicago, or Ferguson or Portland without a “drive by”!! You along with the your string pullers the socialist left aren’t in the business of saving lives your all so consumed with your power you and Nancy, Biden, Obama, etc. would’ve rather reported several catastrophes from today’s rally than report it was a very peaceful gathering with no problems. That’s what really makes me wanna fu$n puke.

    This is a guarantee and you should report this because it’s actual facts; whatever sick legislation that may get implanented; the Police and the National guard will never confiscate a single firearm; we took an oath that puts us between you and the intent to destroy the constitution

  31. Yeah! Either you are conspiracy theorist or you had something planned to crash the party at Virginia THAT FAILED ! HA! HA! HA !HA !HA !FAKE NEWS !

  32. Fearmonging fake news ! Fake News ! Fake News ! Conspiracy theorists ! Ha! ha! ha! ha! The fake news and their conspiracy theories ! What a bunch of weirdos and you expect someone to take you serious ?

  33. Oh No! A peaceful pro gun rally!! The last time the Dem party was this upset was when Lincoln abolished slavery! Just ask black face Northam the racist!

  34. Gov Northam promised the American news media another Charlottesville, 20,000 folks showed and all the media has to show for it is some girl who was arrested after refusing to remove her mask. It's a dark day In Richmond. https://babylonbee.com/news/media-offers-thoughts-and-prayers-that-someone-would-start-some-violence-at-gun-rights-rally

  35. Registration leads to confiscation! (Read up on pre Nazi Germany! Aka the democratic party of America!) Red flag laws are unconstitutional! Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty!

  36. Sorry media, more than 30,000 armed citizens showed up and not even a fist fight. That's how law abiding people act.

  37. Dont be f***ing 100% dishonest MSNBC, guns aren't banned at the protest guns are banned on government property.

  38. They declared a state of emergency because they felt threatened by people upholding their right. 22k ppl showed, many armed, no shots fired and they even picked up their trash. How very threatening.

  39. So where was all the violence by legal gun owners, leftists? Not a single arrest except some ANTIFA girl covering her face. Just LOL. ANTIFA cowered in the face of legally armed citizens.

  40. Just keep your firearms. They will never get them all. Just another Democrat bunch of lies to try to get a political edge .

  41. No, Richmond people weren't on edge at all, it's the goofy media who hyping the story all for an agenda. The sooner the media/Left realize that the American voters spoke in 2016, the better off this country will be.

  42. This media outlet write articles that suggest that no violence at the protest was due to the police taking measures ahead of the rally. Which is not true. Even if those very few “ white supremacy members” would have showed up, there is no proof that they would have committed any crimes. When people who Believe so strongly in something, and it is threatened, those people make hollow threats. The police, and the government in Virginia should have stepped aside. Not declared a state of emergency, not banned weapons on the grounds, not confiscated cigarette lighters. The justification to ban guns was on very few credible threats made on social media, and the 2017 rally where someone drove their car into the crowd. Where was the gun violence in the 2017 rally, not at the rally.
    How many thousand of people said they were going to storm Area 51?
    People make threats on social media every second of the day, because they have no courage to do anything in the real world. Those politicians in office who do not stand behind the real constitution of the United States should be tried for treason. Their agenda is not representative of the American people.
    The money hungry media should really take a look at themselves as being a huge part of the problem with hatred, and misinformation in our society today. Tragic events do not need to be over publicized, and shared with the world for financial, and political gain. They pick and choose what version of free speech best suits their argument, and cause more controversy among the people.
    This country has been almost equally divided for years into two parties, both have proven to be untrustworthy, say anything to get elected, and slam our country and its people into their agenda. Whichever side is elected this year is still only representing roughly half of the country. That means the other half likely does not support your agenda. When our numbers are that strong, divided, you have no right to decide for all of the citizens what freedoms you want to regulate.

  43. Kids are dying in schools so adults can play dress up… yet the whole idea for these guns is to protect themsleves and their family but you never hear of these "badasses" running in all guns blazing when a threat arises – irony.
    this is one rally/gathering i do want to see a gun nut shooting from a hotel room, but i guess he will be with the crowd holding a sign about how he wont let no one take his gun away.

  44. Sorry MSM, it turned to be a rally of 20000 people there to protect their 2nd amendment. It was peaceful and the attendee's cleaned up when they left. It was not a Neo-Nazi, white supremacist rally like you guys hoped for. The only rallies that turn violent are Antifa and Proud boys (Far left and far right, not normal citizens).

  45. …and nothing happened. No massacres, no gun battles, nothing.
    You can hear the brains of MSM pundits going "Awwwww" in disappointment

  46. Thousands of Conservatives together armed with firearms = No Violence. These are people with class and Dicipline, unlike the SJWs and the Black lives matter idiots. I prefer to be an American than a Democrat.

  47. NBC, one of the leftists' propaganda outlets, sensationalizes the almost invisible arrest of several suspects, yet ignores the huge ice cream social that supported the Second Amendment rights of not only Virginians but all Americans. The rally consisted of a friendly, diverse crowd. The mainstream media dared not show the diversity of Americans toting firearms, flags, or banners. Doing so would have exposed their mendacity and toxic bias.

    If sensible Americans compare the mainstream media coverage of the rally and the actual rally, they will see that the mainstream media cannot be trusted to be honest, truthful and unbiased.

  48. I can't believe news stations sent reporters, to a rally with all those violent criminals there. LOL
    Over 16,000 guns, and not one shot fired. If we were a problem you would know it
    Those Without Arms Cannot Defend Freedom

  49. Where was blackface governor hiding? Shouldn’t he been a man instead of a coward and addressed the crowd of the people who’s rights he was attacking?

  50. They even picked their garbage up.remember when BLM burned Ferguson. Or antifa trashing every city they riot in.while cops are ordered to stand down

  51. See Democratic how peaceful rally’s are held. God bless America and thank you Trump for saving all America , putting us first . He has made History no other President has ever done.

  52. The 6 men arrested have no records predating Jan 20th 2016. That was the day Trump was elected and I almost guarantee that they are plants

  53. That is how the media and dems operate. Instill fear and hatred. So glad this went of as I had expected. Not a single problem… except for the media and dems over hyping things as usual. Cant wait to see them all freak when the impeachment fails.

  54. 91 of 95 Virginia counties voted to become sanctuary counties to oppose Governor Northam's proposed laws. As written in the Declaration of Independence," Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed." Does it sound like the Governor has the consent of the governed? Does it sound like he minds?
