If someone were to call in a bomb threat at the last minute, what would be the police's procedure under Virginia state law?

2017-07-18 17:05:19 UTC  

To screw us over. Unless the police had searched and cleared the area at which point they could say the threat is without merit.
What would you guess they would bet they will do?

2017-07-18 17:07:31 UTC  

I figured. Just wanted to double check. :/ What's the likelihood of an enemy doing that?

2017-07-18 17:36:11 UTC  

Depends on if the think federal terrorism charges would be filed.

2017-07-18 17:36:32 UTC  

That tactic has largely died down since those sorts of laws have been passed

2017-07-18 17:54:43 UTC  

They used bomb threats against Milo last year. I could see them at least considering that option to shut us down, especially since this rally will be so big.

2017-07-18 19:42:45 UTC  

Tfw I hate hecklers veto so much that I go anyway and it's actually more than a threat because they failed to mention it wasn't a threat from antifa but actually the local mosque

2017-07-18 19:42:51 UTC  

Rip

2017-07-18 23:41:06 UTC  

Pretty shocked blackjacks aren't kosher.

2017-07-19 02:21:33 UTC  

lmao they're generally an offense-only weapon. Of course they wouldn't be allowed.

2017-07-19 02:21:53 UTC  

They scream "I'm here to hurt people and I don't care who"

2017-07-19 10:17:35 UTC  

A wrench with a wrist lanyard gets the same job accomplished.

2017-07-27 01:04:06 UTC  

At best it would simply delay the rally. It's not that big of a park to run dogs through

2017-07-27 06:10:08 UTC  

No-mask laws should be unconstitutional

2017-07-27 06:12:53 UTC  

I checked the va law and you can't even wear a gas mask

2017-07-27 10:41:45 UTC  

@Tiwaz in this scenario, it will actually help us. Also, the irony of it originally being intended to stifle KKK activity, but now being used to arrest those who oppose White Nationalism is pretty delicious.

2017-07-27 15:31:25 UTC  

Respirators should not be illegal

See (ii), since they are protective equipment and the intent is not to hide identity...

2017-07-27 17:00:56 UTC  

@Stannisthemannis what about a mask like this

2017-07-27 17:12:24 UTC  

If you are in a situation where you are being maced why Not?

Can't wear it while randomly walking down the street

2017-07-27 17:13:04 UTC  

If you're actively Being maced you're not gonna have time to put that on

2017-07-27 17:13:28 UTC  

And that's a sure way to get charged

2017-07-27 17:15:53 UTC  

I'm bringing a 3m half mask respirator

2017-07-27 17:55:23 UTC  

@Johnny O'Malley I'm not worried about mace, i've been maced in the face before. CS gas is much much worse

2017-07-27 17:56:14 UTC  

I'd take cs gas over mace 7 days a week

2017-07-27 17:57:06 UTC  

@Johnny O'Malley Haha really? A pair of sunglasses will mitigate most of the debilitating effects of pepper spray, but not a nice thick cloud of CS

2017-07-27 17:58:12 UTC  

Yeah but as soon as you get away from the cs and clap your arms a little you're fine. Great for allergies and sinuses. Last time I Personally got maced I was down for about 15- 20 mins

2017-07-27 17:59:12 UTC  

Yeah it sure is good for your sinuses alright, will clear them right out 😄

2017-07-27 18:00:49 UTC  

Pepper spray is probably more likely to be deployed at this event than cs gas though, i'm willing to guess

2017-07-27 18:15:26 UTC  

Is there any law restricting the type of flag poles we bring? Im willing to look up statutes but no idea what sort of statute would restrict this

2017-07-27 18:42:19 UTC  

@WhiteTrash I haven't seen it mentioned. Are you wanting to bring something weird?

2017-07-27 18:43:25 UTC  

no

2017-07-27 18:43:53 UTC  

was just gonna get a dowel rod or something

2017-07-27 18:44:15 UTC  

or buy a flagpole off amazon..whatever

2017-07-27 18:55:13 UTC  

That part in the law about protective devices is for people who are actively employed in a business that requires them to use protective gear

2017-07-27 18:55:34 UTC  

Not just anyone wearing protective gear

2017-07-27 21:17:28 UTC  

Nathan is checking with the police on flagpoles because there was some concerns over them being construed as weapons. He is supposed to make an announcement about it as soon as he finds out something
