Lines were long at the state capitol Monday as supporters of gun rights passed through security on their way to lobby lawmakers against additional restrictions. They wore stickers that read: Guns Save Lives. Later, supporters of gun control would arrive to press for new laws restricting purchase and possession of weapons.
Hundreds of people came to voice support or opposition to gun control laws. Activist and blogger David Codrea told about 200 people – some openly carrying long-guns – that Governor Terry McAuliffe should not be trusted.
