Message from Stannisthemannis in Charlottesville 2.0 #virginia_laws
If someone were to call in a bomb threat at the last minute, what would be the police's procedure under Virginia state law?
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?
I figured. Just wanted to double check. :/ What's the likelihood of an enemy doing that?
Depends on if the think federal terrorism charges would be filed.
That tactic has largely died down since those sorts of laws have been passed
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.
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
Pretty shocked blackjacks aren't kosher.
lmao they're generally an offense-only weapon. Of course they wouldn't be allowed.
They scream "I'm here to hurt people and I don't care who"
A wrench with a wrist lanyard gets the same job accomplished.
At best it would simply delay the rally. It's not that big of a park to run dogs through
No-mask laws should be unconstitutional
I checked the va law and you can't even wear a gas mask
@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.
Respirators should not be illegal
See (ii), since they are protective equipment and the intent is not to hide identity...
If you are in a situation where you are being maced why Not?
Can't wear it while randomly walking down the street
If you're actively Being maced you're not gonna have time to put that on
And that's a sure way to get charged
I'm bringing a 3m half mask respirator
@Johnny O'Malley I'm not worried about mace, i've been maced in the face before. CS gas is much much worse
I'd take cs gas over mace 7 days a week
@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
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
Yeah it sure is good for your sinuses alright, will clear them right out 😄
Pepper spray is probably more likely to be deployed at this event than cs gas though, i'm willing to guess
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
@WhiteTrash I haven't seen it mentioned. Are you wanting to bring something weird?
was just gonna get a dowel rod or something
or buy a flagpole off amazon..whatever
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
Not just anyone wearing protective gear
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
