    help the defense of those arrested. The single most critical issue in TMP laws is that there cannot be any difference based on content. If there is evidence that a guns rights group met at the same location, without any police presence or action, that would be powerful evidence in favor of the defense.

        If I read everything correctly, the specific issue with the people who were arrested was gathering on the capital steps, being warned that they were violating the law and refusing to leave that specific location. I don't know anything about the buildings at the Virginia capital but the new article didn't say anything about gathering on the steps. The article discussed meeting in the "square" and then lobbying legislators in their offices. They certainly could have been gathering on the steps in violation of the law, but that is the evidence you would need, not just that the gun rights group had a rally.
