 RICHMOND — The Virginia Supreme Court has upheld Gov. Ralph Northam’s temporary ban on guns in Capitol Square, which went into effect Friday at 5 p.m. and will continue through a major gun-rights rally scheduled for Monday.

Concern about the rally, which organizers warn could attract tens of thousands of armed protesters, escalated in Richmond Friday when President Trump drew attention to it on Twitter.

“Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia,” Trump tweeted. “That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!”

Northam (D) announced the ban Wednesday as part of declaring a state of emergency, citing “credible intelligence” that some groups had threatened violent demonstrations against gun control laws being considered by the state legislature.

On Thursday, the FBI arrested three alleged members of a white supremacist group on gun charges, partly out of concern that they planned to attend the Richmond rally and incite violence.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
