Update: Gutierrez says he tweeted the wrong video. The 'we will not comply' chants refer to the laws proposed which violate the second amendment.
Earlier posted video of Pledge of Allegiance. For those who’ve asked, here’s the video of “We will not comply,.” Taken seconds apart. pic.twitter.com/Egz4mqVhzo— Gabe Gutierrez (@gabegutierrez) January 20, 2020
Original post: Thousands of freedom-loving Virginians are gathered in Richmond Monday morning to lobby the state government in support of the Second Amendment. Virginia’s state legislature has proposed a number of unconstitutional gun control bills that would impede on these sacred, enumerated rights given to Americans in the Second Amendment.
Mainstream outlets are covering this protest as civil disobedience, despite framing other demonstrations led by liberal causes as patriotic. NBC’s Gabe Gutierrez blatantly lied about what was occurring during the protest this morning; attendees joined together to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, but Gutierrez claimed that they were chanting "we will not comply:"

Conservative voices on Twitter quickly put this fake narrative to rest:

Second Amendment supporters will continue to lobby at Virginia's capitol, with or without fair coverage from mainstream media outlets.
