This sounds a lot like what happened after Sandy Hook -- lots of sound and fury, but little actual action. That said, the fears of a second Charlottesville are not unreasonable. Still, this is the first I'm hearing of any potential mass protests or whatever, despite living in Richmond.

Yes, I think this article is part of the problem. It’s definitely sowing some FUD. I could see some isolated violence, however, and it’s sad how effectively anti-democratic actors are exciting these fringe groups. I suspect the NRA/Russia connection is a major exploit.
