For those of you in NoVA, DC and MD that might use the NRA range on weekends, there will be a county-approved protest outside of NRA HQ, shutting down Waples Mill Road from 12-3pm on Saturday, August 4, 2018. I'm sure the residents who live in the area will be overjoyed.
Counter protesters are also expected to join in the fun & games.
The NRA range will delay opening that Saturday until 4pm and close as usual at 11pm.
800,000 people in DC back in March? Yea, right.

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. – The organizers behind March For Our Lives, along with the National Organization For Change, are once again marching against gun violence.
According to a tweet, the group officially got approval to shut down part of the street in front of the National Rifle Association’s headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia on August 4.
The “National March on NRA” comes nearly seven months after 17 people were massacred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018. The mass shooting sparked the March For Our Lives rally that brought a reported 800,000 people to D.C. on March 24, 2018, to demand the end of gun violence and mass school shootings.
Ever since the march, participants have been committed to keeping the movement going.
Organizers are expecting a lot of people to attend the August 4 march and said it is the first time the road in front of the NRA has ever been shut down.
According to their website, "National Org. For Change and March For Our Lives will team up and show our politicians that we refuse to accept gun violence as an unsolvable issue. Now it’s time to turn our energy into action."
The march is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 4, 2018, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the NRA headquarters located at 11250 Waples Mill Rd, Fairfax, VA 22030.
