    Article shamelessly stolen word for word from this link:

    Tone Deaf Bloomberg Holds Rally in Virginia; Gets A Gun Rights Rally Instead

    Richmond, VA–Talk about tone deaf. Michael Bloomberg, like most leftist elites, thinks that he’s God’s gift to humanity.

    So imagine his surprise when he rolled into Arlington, Virginia for a presidential campaign rally where he was going to stump for gun control like usual. But instead of finding hundreds of paid admirers, Bloomberg had reality slap him in the face.


    Hundreds of gun owners had gathered to protest Bloomberg and his gun control. Those gun owners know who financed the destruction of their state. They know that Bloomberg put hundreds of thousands of dollars into flipping Virginia blue.

    Pardon them. They might not be as polished as his other friends, but they still wanted to show up to the party.

    And show up they did! Check out these pictures:

    They started to trickle in, a dozen or so.

    Banners taller than the crowd popped up:

    Eventually, the 2A crowd was double and triple the size of Bloomberg’s staff and supporters!


    [​IMG]

    In an ironic twist, the media tried to spin the crowd as excited Bloombots, but unfortunately for them, couldn’t get any good footage of actual Bloomberg supporters. Why? Because the vast majority of the crowd was there in protest! Every camera angle made it clear that Bloomberg wasn’t the hero of this crowd, but the villain.



    This is just plain fun to watch. Mike Bloomberg tries to buy friends, but gun owning Virginians aren’t his $600-a-plate crowd. In fact, they’d just as soon he left Virginia and took his purchased Democrats with him.

    Good riddance, Mike. You’re neither welcome nor wanted on the same soil as any free American.

    I saw this headline on fb, it made me smile!

    GRNC sent out a note asking NC to “welcome” Bloomy in the same manner.

    Shamelessly stolen from the email you speak of

    MEGALOMANIAC GUN BAN ADVOCATE MIKE BLOOMBERG IS COMING TO TOWN

    The man who bought the VA legislature to ban guns will be here on Thursday, Feb 13 2020, at 300 South Elm Street Greensboro, NC 27401.

    Our Protest event will take place from 8:15 am - 10:30 am on the sidewalk. We need EVERYONE we can muster to protest his nanny-statism.

    Take time off from work if you have to

    Please dress for the press - no inflammatory slogans on clothing or signs.

    Megalomaniac Mikey has no use for liberty or the truth, he thinks he knows better than you.

    This is a man who doesn’t want to call it gun control because it implies that “you’re going to take away people’s guns” while his comrades in Virginia plot to take people’s guns away.

    He is Mr. Astroturf using his billions to buy elections and create front groups of liberty grabbers. This is a man who thinks guns should only have 3 rounds and that you, the average citizen shouldn’t have one. For elitists like mini Mike, you don’t deserve the ability to defend yourself, meanwhile he cowers behind heavily armed men.

    This is a man who said “the way you get the guns out of the kids' hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them”. Who stated that “If you can stop them from getting murdered, I would argue everything else you do is less important.”

    Don’t forget that when Biden drops out and the socialists implode, he will be the only ‘sane’ choice on the field. Never mind that he is as extreme a statist as the rest of them.

      • ATTEND THIS EVENT: 8:15 AM - 10:30 AM
      • Sidewalk outside 300 S Elm St, Bloomberg Campaign
        HQ.

        Greensboro, NC 27401
      • Please dress for the press, no inflammatory slogans on clothing or signs.
      • Remember: NO FIREARMS are permitted at demonstrations under NC law (including concealed)
      • PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO GRNC: Help us fight gun control while we promote Second Amendment principles. Please CLICK HERE to contribute. Bear in mind that GRNC is an all-volunteer organization, so you can be sure your donations are put to the best possible use. Any amount helps, and any amount is appreciated.

    How bad is traffic on 85 in order to be there on time if coming from Charlotte? When should a person leave if he wants to not break sped laws?

    When he comes, someone PLEASE axe him, Since 95% of the murders are committed by one demographic, why don’t you focus there and leave the rest of us safe, law abiding citizens alone? Or something along those lines.
    Bloomberg, “95% of your murders – murderers and murder victims fit one M.O.,” Bloomberg allegedly states in the audio. “You can just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city and that’s where the real crime is.”

    “You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed,” he continued. “You want to spend the money on a lot of cops in the streets. Put those cops where the crime is, which means in minority neighborhoods.”

    Very tiny. Can't believe it would actually be a stop for anyone seriously trying to run.

    I can tell you why. It's not about safety, it's about disarmament. Full stop. Do not pass go.

    We gun owners aren't the problem until they make us the problem.

    We, myself included, get caught up in the lies and bs they spew as to why they want guns off the street. Just remember that no matter what they say - safety, children, violence, drugs, whatever - it's really about total disarmament. It'll hurt your head less then trying to make sense of the lies and ignorance.

    Didn't matter when HRC called them 'super-predators' so I doubt it will hurt him. He's already spent $300 Million of Soros' money, what's another 700 Mil?

    PLEASE make sure you do everything you can to fight little mikey. Grassroots NC was at the Greensboro stop, not many GRNC folks (raining buckets) but they were there being seen by the little mikey robots lined up to get into his meeting.

    Volunteer with GRNC at a show, event, rally, put up signs, send them some $$, ask your LGS to put up a sign about what happened in VA and is going come to NC.
    If we sit back and don't push back, you'll be roasting marshmallows at 'banned P-mag' bonfire. The left will not give up and we have to overcome.

    Was a little hard to have a good crowd of pro-2A folks when it’s raining buckets & they change the address of venue 3 times in 24 hours to avoid us.

    I was there & got drenched, but I grew up on farm so I’m used to it.:D

    ^This^ Could work to our advantage though. If their crowd looks huge, ours should look huger. :D

    No, but he's willing to pay someone else to try and kill you to take your AR. ;)
