Law Enforcement Estimates 25,000 People Attended Virginia Gun Rights Rally, ‘All Peaceful’
A law enforcement source working at the gun rights rally in Richmond tells The Gateway Pundit that the police are estimating 25,000 people were in attendance.
The massive crowds outside Virginia’s Capitol in downtown Richmond are opposing proposed gun control laws from Democrats.
The law enforcement source added that as of 1 p.m. there has been “no incidents to report at all, it was all peaceful.”
