The second amendment stronghold rally in Richmond, Virginia, on Jan. 20, 2020, attracted gun rights supporters, Trump supporters, and patriots who oppose the politicians that now control the Virginia legislature. The State of Virginia flag and motto, Sic Semper Tyrannis (Thus Always To Tyrants), was a popular flag, as were the Gadsden flag (Don't Tread On Me) and Molon Labe posters (Come and Take (Them).) Posters of the Virginia 2A stronghold map were widespread, and proclaimed that 94% of Virginia localities oppose more gun control. The battle against gun control continues to rage in Virginia as the current legislative session nears adjournment on March 7.
