2nd Amendment Activists Rally Against Gun Control Legislation in Virginia

Summary from the AllSides News Team

A rally at the Virginia Capitol on Monday ended peacefully after an estimated 22,000 gun owners and gun rights activists demonstrated in protest of proposed state gun control legislation. Some reporting and voices focused on the peacefulness of the rally compared to the deadly Charlottesville incident in 2017; others focused on sightings of suspected white supremacists and members of other extremist sects at the rally. Some, particularly on the right, criticized the media for alleged fear-mongering leading up to the demonstration.
