    The group marched in laps around the Virginia State Capitol, often passing by signs describing a prohibition of firearms in those areas.

    The march was led by “Boogaloo Boy” and Virginia militia leader Mike Dunn. In August, Dunn held a similar march in Richmond drawing a coalition of about 100 armed activists as a special legislative session took place. At the time, such an event was legal.

    In September, Richmond’s City Council unanimously passed the new ordinance that would “prohibit the possession, carrying or transportation of any firearms in any public street, road, alley, sidewalk, public right-of-way or any open public space when it is being used by, or is adjacent to, an event that requires a city permit.”

    Virginia law also bans the public carry of magazines holding more than twenty rounds in several cities including Richmond. Both magazine limit and firearm-at-demonstration violations are class 1 misdemeanors.

    “It’s not meant to be a big day,” said Dunn Saturday morning to his group. “It’s meant to be a meaningful day, where the cops stand down and listen to us, and they don’t enforce the unconstitutional orders.”

    “And the city council gets pissed off,” he added.

    Throughout the event, the activists largely stayed tight-lipped to the media. When asked for comment, Dunn would simply say “Liberty shall not be infringed.”

    While passing a “no firearms beyond this point” sign, the group smacked it and held up their middle fingers.

    “This is how we feel about this sign right here,” said “Pops,” a boogaloo-adjacent Black Lives Matter activist who carried four guns and held his middle finger to the sign.

    Dunn concluded the event by climbing onto the barrier around the Capitol and hanging a “big igloo” (boogaloo) flag before telling the group to get to their cars and vacate the city immediately.

    The local firearm restrictions has previously been disallowed under Virginia law, which was changed in March to allow individual localities to restrict gun rights tighter than the state itself.

    Dunn previously challenged a local law that had been newly passed in October in Newport News Virginia. Ahead of a speech given by 2020 Libertarian vice presidential candidate Spike Cohen, Dunn was confronted by local officers who ordered him to put away a handgun on his belt. When he refused, he was arrested.

    One week later, he brought about a dozen armed men to the Newport News Police station where Police Chief Steve R. Drew allowed the activists – violating the same ordinance Dunn had been arrested for a week later – to hold their rally. Drew also confirmed he had returned Dunn’s firearm earlier in the day, although he was still criminally charged in the incident.
