The FBI reportedly believes there is a “huge uprising” being planned for January 16 to 20 across America’s state capitals. The accuracy of the alleged report is more than a little in doubt. Others are publicly speculating that the supposed rallies are nothing more than false flag operation to provide the impetus for more gun control legislation both in the states and in Washington.
ABC News has the coverage of the supposed uprising.
Starting this week and running through at least Inauguration Day, armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols and at the U.S. Capitol, according to an internal FBI bulletin obtained by ABC News.
“The FBI received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January,” the bulletin read. “They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur.”
This is the same ABC News from which their senior political director Robert Klein called for “cleansing” the nation of the Trump movement. From MSN.com:
“Even aside from impeachment and 25th Amendment talk, Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part,” Klein wrote in his popular blog.
“Cleansing the movement he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else,” he added, drawing comments that it sounded too much like Hitler.
Seeing how the mainstream media, tech giants and Democrats have completely misrepresented last week’s rally in Washington, D.C. as some sort of terrorist attack akin to 9/11, it seems possible that something more might be in play here.
As the protesters in D.C. knew last week, an armed march in the nation’s capital would violate local laws. Many in the pro-gun community are sounding the alarm for gun owners to stay away from these events if they do actually materialize. The Gateway Pundit writes:
WARNING! There are several armed protests at state capitols across the country before inaugural ceremonies next week.
WE ARE URGING YOU NOT TO ATTEND!
WE BELIEVE THIS IS LIKELY A SINISTER ATTEMPT TO TAKE AWAY YOUR GUNS!
WE ARE VERY CONCERNED THE RADICAL LEFT IS USING THIS TO START A FIREFIGHT AND TAKE AWAY YOUR GUN RIGHTS!
We at TTAG are unaware of any organized plans to hold armed rallies at any state capitol complexes, much less holding them simultaneously in all fifty states. My day job is serving as the executive director of Guns Save Life in Illinois and no one has reached out to us about any rallies in Springfield. In fact, our annual Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day that was scheduled for April, 2021 has been cancelled per the Illinois State Rifle Association’s website because of COVID restrictions.
Either way, it might be a prudent idea for gun owners to stay far away from their state capitol buildings in the next few days, especially with their guns…even if state law allows lawful carry at or inside capitol buildings.
