Message from Johnny O'Malley in Charlottesville 2.0 #virginia_laws
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
Kkk had flag poles no?
I believe so. On live hours last night he said that the police were going to try and control the group's getting into the park and the flag post may not be allowed but they are going to follow up
i'm gonna be there early before they control so whatever
only real question is AK47 or AR15
i kid i don'te ven have any funs
but i do have lots of flags
@greg-ky VA is not CA or DC. The police cannot under pretty much any circumstances prevent you from carrying anything that is not explictly illegal by state law. You can open carry a sword if you want, as long as you do not brandish it. Nathan doesn't understand how the law works here, which is why he said that.
Thats very bad advice
