Gun control activists were seen storming the Tennessee State Capitol Thursday, amid growing fears of Left uprising in popular protest in Washington, D.C.
Footage of the rebellion shows progressive protesters fighting with cops as they try to get to the Nashville legislature. Hundreds of people were seen inside the lobby shouting from the gallery at the concerned legislators.
The anti-gun protests come after Audrey Hill, who is transgender, killed six people, including three nine-year-olds, at a Christian school in Nashville.
In a separate demonstration, transgender activists yesterday invaded the Kentucky State Capitol in Frankfort to protest a Republican-backed bill to ban transgender procedures for children. Among the mob was a self-described “gendered clown nun,” which immediately drew comparisons to the QAnon Shaman in the January 6 riot.
The left-wing demonstrations come amid fears of a retaliatory day of vengeance threatened in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. Twitter bosses this week scrambled to remove thousands of posts announcing the protest.
Footage from the ongoing insurrection, posted to social media shortly before 2 p.m., shows progressive protesters trying to enter the Nashville Legislature Building, being chased away by several members of the city’s mayor’s circle.
Hours earlier, outside the Kentucky State Capitol in Frankfort, an unrelated procession of clergy activists dressed as clowns and satanic outfits had assembled to protest their governor’s veto of a bill banning medical treatments for transgender children.
While most condemned the attack — which killed three nine-year-olds and killed several school staff — several unrelated extremist groups have emerged, claiming that the shootings were a result of the ongoing oppression of transgender people in more conservative southern states.
One such group, the Radical Activists Network (TRAN), appears to have taken note of the chaos, and seized the opportunity to rename a planned three-day procession previously called The fleeting day of vision as the “Day of Vengeance”.
Posters announcing the rally were quickly posted and shared on a platform such as Twitter, which confirmed on Wednesday that it had already removed more than 5,000 posts promoting the event.
According to several since-deleted ads, the event is still taking place in Washington, D.C., as scheduled — Friday through Sunday — though revelers wrote that they’ll be “walking” the nation’s most important courthouse at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
The demonstration currently taking place in Nashville was a preview of what public officials could have in store for Washington once the weekend rolls around — with footage taken from the scene showing hundreds descending upon Tennessee’s first legislature building in a fight to tighten gun laws.
Before forcing themselves into the building, hundreds are seen gathering outside, chanting “Save our children!” — a phrase that echoed noisily in the hallways between the Senate and House of Representatives this afternoon.

Some silently filled the Senate floor – while others shouted at the officials trying to force their way through the building. The children carried signs referring to Monday’s attack, which was carried out by a transgender person

Hundreds of school children, teens and parents gathered in a parade to protest gun laws that are in place three days after the Covenant school shooter was shot.
Protesters eventually made their way to the state legislature building, where some engaged officers charged with keeping the peace.
A group of more than a hundred protesters were seen lining the building’s hallways on Thursday — two days before a rumored “march” in front of the US Supreme Court, allegedly.
It was a much larger group of more than 1,000 and still stationed overseas, pleading with the Republican-dominated legislature to amend existing gun laws.
