July 4 2021 Richmond, Virginia – Boogaloo Bois and BLM757 gathered for a a second amendment demonstration on the Independence Day. As the new state law has been enacted, adding more restrictions on open carry in immidiate area of the Capitol Building, the group practiced what they believe is their constitutional right to open carry, by challenging that law.
Two other local statues were also in violation at the time.
As they approached closer to the Capitol Grounds, they were given a print out of the law and told to leave.
The print out read: “Carrying a firearm or explosive material within Capitol Square and the surrounding area, into a building owned or leased by the Commonwealth, etc penalty”. “violation of this section is punishable as a Class 1 Misdemeanor” and any firearm or explosive material is subject to “seizure by a law enforcement officer and forfeited to the Commonwealth and disposed of”.
After a brief confrontation, officials backed away and the group retreated to the “permitted area”.
