We get it … some people are just triggered (no pun intended) at the sight of guns, or even the idea that people around them could be carrying concealed. Remember the cops who were asked by a barista to leave a Starbucks in Tempe, Arizona because a customer “did not feel safe” in the presence of guns? Or all the people who said they’d call the cops on a guy open carrying (legally) because they’d “assume he’s not a good guy”?
Or best yet: David Frum fretting about people carrying because they’ll maim half-a-dozen bystanders over a purse-snatching? The gun control crowd, ironically, seems to think that gun owners have no control over their firearms.
This footage has been making the rounds all day, and we’re not quite sure why, but it got Impeachment Task Force member Alyssa Milano crowing about “Trump’s America.”

People walking to a rally to peacefully assemble under the First Amendment to protect the Second Amendment. Trump’s America, all right.
Look at all that…. walking.

How dare they *checks notes* use a crosswalk to cross the street? I'm literally shaking.

People … WALKING CALMLY!

Protesters peacefully walking, not terrorizing innocent civilians or damaging property like ANTIFA.
Thanks for calling it out. #KAG2020

People walking the street safely and peacefully yet it irks you so much. If it was Antifa beating up conservatives you would be cheering like a giddy child.
— Royal Golden Bed (@bed_royal) January 20, 2020
No property damaged.
Looks good to me.
Now do an Antifa rally.

What is so striking about what I saw at the gun rights rally in Richmond is what I didn’t see: almost no cops. Just that little cluster of state police there. No lines of riot cops. No law enforcement in riot gear.

I love it. Peace loving Patriots supporting their Constitutional rights.
No fear here.
Btw, this has been America since 1776.
Read a history book.

This is MY AMERICA.
This is YOUR AMERICA.
People standing up for their rights vs a tyrannical govt.
People taking a stand for autonomy and a sovereign America.
Thing of beauty isn't it?
POWER TO THE PEOPLE. 🇺🇸
— Chesley J. Dohl (@chesleydohl) January 20, 2020
Yet no one got hurt, Everyone was polite. People of all races and beliefs. They cleaned up the trash. This is a civil rights issue. People want to be free.
This is what happends when government over steps. People peacefully protest.
— Control tower studio (@Controltowerst1) January 20, 2020
Civilians peacefully protesting their right, under the Constitution, to bear arms, when a tyrannical Governor wants to infringe that right? Looks like they are doing the right thing.
Northam needs to be impeached for acting unconstitutionally.

I share your support for gun rights. Thanks for being a leading voice in support of our constitutional rights.

It’s good to see Americans willing to brave a cold winter day in order to peaceably protest an overreaching government and defend their Constitutional freedoms. We should all feel proud, and pray for their safety and success in their cause.

That is simply one of the most beautiful sights we have ever seen. God-bless America! Alyssa, this great country of ours may not be the right fit for you, you seem awkwardly unaccepting of everything it stands for.
— Restricted Republic (@RestrictedRepu1) January 20, 2020
Seems pretty peaceful. Law abiding gun owners dressed for cold weather. *Yawn*
You seem disappointed, Alyssa.
— Nikki Knight $NikkiKnight104 (@NikkiKnight104) January 20, 2020
Zero arrests. Cops bored but happy. No troubles at all. This is how the Right handles a rally. Oh, and they cleaned up after themselves. Antifa didn't show up, evidently. No guts.

Not. One. Arrest.
Not. One. Shot. Fired.

I remember in Obama's America there were riots and cities burning all the time… I'll take Trump's America…lol
— JabbarRight (@JabbarRight) January 20, 2020
There really were riots all the time, and this editor knows because he covered them.
Expected response from an out-of-touch Hollywood celebrity who attends multiple events every year that are filled to the brim with armed guards and security, and likely even has armed security in their own gated home. If celebrities can protect themselves, so can we. Get a clue.

You could start with a national gun registry and work your way up to that level of fascism, sure.
