    Well it is slippery but the Founders were subverting the crown too. I am open to ideas but simply protesting and voting at election time really has not worked

    Now instead of it being this guy taking photos and knocking on pillars, let's say it was a guy of obvious middle eastern persuasion. Should the cops then look the other way? I suspect this is a pretty standard investigation considering the hype leading up to this event.

    This guy acted like a doosh. He was swearing at the cops and bringing up things that they have no control over. I didn't see what the guy saw with the cop he sent away, but both cops were polite and kept their cool in the face of being sworn at and being called names.

    While those who are opposed to the proposed laws may cheer this guy on, he didn't do us any favors. Yeah, this video will get lots of views, but it is ammunition for both sides.

    If this was done for intimidation purposes, these cops have got a lot of work ahead of them as this guy doesn't appear to be any kind of leader in the planned protest. If they are going to intimidate one random person at a time, they've got their work cut out for them.

    I won't state how I feel, but this BS gestapo crap, being fueled by the left, hoping to provoke an incident (false flag operation) to further their illegal cause, is going to get someone severely hurt and light a fuse no one will be able to extinguish.
    It will not end well.
    Vote these a holes out of office!

    Cops go talk to a guy who was observed acting a certain way in an area where protests and violence is expected to happen on Monday.

    If the cops did not talk to him and something would happen, they would say “they knew who this guy was and did nothing”.

    There’s no win.

    The anitfa kid's mother had just washed the kitchen floor and wouldn't let the po-po in and go down cellar to her son's "apartment".

    They wouldn't dare. They would be vilified by the media. Antifa are the good guys to them.

    I was wondering that myself. I assume some kind of facial recognition.

    Not really. He cursed a few times but all in all was pretty restrained and respectful. I'm not sure I would do better, given the circumstances. If you are totally innocent you would be pretty pissed off too.

    When the cop says "why were you knocking on the pillars, checking densities I would assume", I would be pretty ticked off at the implied accusation too. That what was one of the dumbest ass statements I've ever heard. I assume he was trying to invoke some kind of reaction.

    I wonder if they do the same for the criminal thugs that they likely know of in our communities? The Governor and legislators are the ones who started this unreasonable, unjust and unconstitutional attack on law-abiding gun owning citizens.

    All these proposals are without merit and designed to disarm and make exercising our 2A rights that much more difficult. Moreover, none of these proposals will make anyone more safe.

    The onerous of your personal safety, your family and your community is on you. The police have no duty to protect, despite what some would like you to believe. Dialing 911 is not fail safe. Police arrest criminals and investigate crimes. Apparently, the Governor and the legislature did not get the memo.

    Liberal politicians and laws backed my millionaires have added draconian gun control laws.
    Antifa has physically attacked folks.
    Our 'media' has supported all of those.

    What wrongs have conservatives / Pro Second Amendment folks committed.

    Well i guess the people of Virginia will never get to look GovBlackfaceKKK straight in the eye. He`s to busy hiding behind his armed security team to look people straight in the eye.

    GovBlackfaceKKK = COWARD!

    Many people across the nation will be watching what unfolds tomorrow in VA. I pray nothing happens, but I agree with @1L26. I think if something happens, it will be some antigun nut who will do something to start a riot that will be blamed on the gun owners.

    The smarter ones would quit. Others, not so much. Some are on a ego trip being LE.

    I get it.
    I think the veteran was lashing out at the “messengers” and the situation. His anger seemed, to me at least, directed at the Governor and his liberal co-conspirators.

    I can imagine the two officers thinking “holy smokes, can you imagine what will happen if we are asked to start collecting guns..... this was only questions”

    I hope that they were scared, or at least a little shaken. When government fears the people, there is freedom.

    It's all for intimidation, period. We are all being watched.
    We are beginning to see the end of freedom. So sad this is happening in our lifetime.

    Absolutely correct

    If I had witnessed someone doing something peculiar, especially at a time and place where everybody is on edge waiting for something to happen, I'd certainly take a second look. Probably wouldn't call police but I'd certainly watch him to see what he was up to.

    Some people think all cops are good, Hannity calls everyone in a uniform a hero.

    I used to fall for the "it's just the guys at the top that are dirty, the rank and file are good".

    I don't believe it anymore.
